STAYING active is now even more rewarding with BookDoc Activ.

Collaborating with three new partners, namely Fitness First, Ogawa and Madame Waffle, BookDoc Active now promises more treats for users who work on staying active.

Users will enjoy rewards such as a month free trial at Fitness First, vouchers from Ogawa and free classic waffles upon a drink purchase at Madame Waffle.

“The objective of this application is to motivate Malaysians to start living a healthier lifestyle,” said BookDoc founder and chief executive officer Datuk Chevy Beh.

The feature rewards its users according to their average daily steps which was tiered bronze, silver and gold.

Being able to sync with other health application such as Apple Health and S Health, it enables users to efficiently keep track of their daily exercise and get rewarded for it.

By maintaining a high level of activity, users would also get discounts from major retailers and service providers monthly.

“We operate in four countries, Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong and Thailand, and based on calculations, Malaysians are the laziest.

“Malaysians’ average steps are only about 2,600 daily, which is far worse compared to Hong Kong which recorded 4,700 average steps daily,” said Beh.

Hence, motivating Malaysians by giving them rewards to stay healthy is a platform to becoming a healthier country.

Exercising is crucial in preventing short- and long-term diseases, so BookDoc is urging the nation to stay healthy and reduce healthcare cost while saving money with the rewards gained.

“When the application first started, we helped users arrange their medical appointments, but I believe prevention is better than cure, so that is why BookDoc Active was launched,” added Beh.
