As we inch closer to mid-year, there comes a point where even the most dedicated fitspos start to lose steam on achieving their New Year’s resolution of getting in shape. Fret not, however, ‘cause Great Eastern’s GETGREAT app is about to kick things into full gear.

Simply clock 500K steps together with a buddy, and both of you will be in the running (pun intended) to win a 4D3N fitness vacation to Phuket, a 12-month True Fitness membership each and a pair of Samsung Gear Sport smartwatches.

Hurry, registration ends 31st May and the steps-clocking period will be from 1st to 30th June 2019.


How GETGREAT by Great Eastern works


The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Similarly, the journey of 500,000 steps begins with you downloading the GETGREAT app. Available for both Apple and Android devices, register an account and recruit a buddy to do the same.

Appoint a Group Leader, then head to the Quest section and select Group. From there, click on the Go GETGREAT with True Fitness & Samsung quest and you’re all set to become fit and fab.

Hit + New Group and invite your friend to join you on the buddy quest.

Unlike other fitness challenges which focus solely on statistics and can feel pretty impersonal, we love that this quest allows you to submit a group statement.

The 50-word write-up of you and your buddy’s inspiration to GETGREAT will serve as a timely reminder whenever you need an extra push along the way. And at the end of the quest, remembering why you started in the first place will amplify the triumphant feelz tenfold.

Racking up half a million steps is no mean feat, but the grand prize is so ridiculously attractive that it’s sure to keep you and your buddy on track.

P.S. The winners are picked based on your group statement & completion of the 500k steps  so remember to strategise!

You and your buddy will be having such a blast that you won’t even realise you’re actually exercising, which is just as well because the top prize also includes a pair of blue Samsung Gear Sport smartwatches worth $368 each.

For the other top 4 winning groups, they will also be treated to a pair of Samsung Gear Sport each, plus 20,000 UPGREAT points per group. The points can be used on the UPGREAT rewards app, and is equivalent to $200 worth of dining, retail and lifestyle goodies.
