Great teams aren’t built in a few minutes. But that’s exactly what most team building activities try to do.

Traditional team building activities…

  • Only last a few minutes, which isn’t long enough for team dynamics to emerge and individuals to gel into a streamlined unit
  • Aren’t suited for today’s in-person/remote/hybrid workforce, making scheduling and logistics a nightmare
  • Are cost prohibitive for larger organizations to deploy across all locations
  • Only last a few minutes, which isn’t long enough for team dynamics to emerge and individuals to gel into a streamlined unit

A Step Ahead is a team-based walking challenge that keeps teams engaged for weeks, months or year round, anywhere, any time. Our entertainment-first approach drives world-class engagement, creating a shared adventure your employees will love and bond over.

A virtual team building experience that engages longer for better results.

Whether it’s “break the ice” questions, murder mysteries over Zoom, or the classic trust fall, traditional team building activities have a fatal flaw: they’re too short to really help teams gel into a streamlined unit.

A Step Ahead is designed to be different…

Why A Step Ahead for your corporate team building?

Support Employee Wellbeing

Physical health is a cornerstone of employee well-being, and incorporating regular physical activity into employees’ routines has countless benefits for both individuals and organizations. Regular exercise improves cardiovascular health, enhances mood, reduces stress, boosts energy levels, and increases focus and concentration. By integrating physical activity into the team-building process, employees experience holistic well-being, both mentally and physically.

A Step Ahead motivates employees to become more active by turning their steps and exercise into progress within the game. Whether it’s walking, jogging, cycling, or engaging in fitness classes, every activity contributes to their journey in the virtual world. By promoting physical activity, ASA helps improve overall employee well-being, leading to increased productivity, reduced absenteeism, and lower insurance utilization.

Foster Team Collaboration

A Step Ahead was designed and conceived of as a team-based game. Your employees form into teams and work together to conquer obstacles, battle enemies, reach new locations and uncover the ongoing story.

One of the standout features of A Step Ahead is its emphasis on team collaboration. By forming teams and relying on each other’s real-world steps and exercise, teammates must work together strategically to progress in the game. This collaborative aspect strengthens bonds, improves communication skills, and fosters a sense of camaraderie among team members, and A Step Ahead’s anywhere/any-time design allows collaboration for remote, distributed, and international teams.

Gamify the Experience

A Step Ahead combines the thrill of gaming with the benefits of physical activity. Your employees will be immersed in a post-apocalyptic world teeming with zombies, rogue robots, alien invaders and much more. By exercising and logging their steps, they’ll move their characters through the game, overcoming obstacles, and engaging in epic battles. It’s an exciting way to make fitness fun!

Encourage Collaboration and Competition

Healthy competition can be a powerful motivator. In fact, a study by the University of Washington showed that individuals competing with one-another did 1.5x the output as when doing a task alone. Incredibly, they did 2x the output when on a team.

A Step Ahead uses both to motivate and engage your employees. Individuals collaborate with their teammates, and teams compete against each other. The game includes leaderboards and team rankings, fostering friendly competition among your employees, adding an extra layer of excitement to the team-building experience.

Boost Employee Engagement

Traditional team-building activities can sometimes feel forced or disconnected from daily work life. A Step Ahead changes that by integrating team building into everyday routines that live outside the workplace. It seamlessly blends exercise, entertainment, and team collaboration, ensuring world-class levels of engagement and participation.

Create Shared Experiences

A Step Ahead takes team building beyond the office walls, allowing your employees to share unique and memorable experiences. As they embark on virtual fitness adventures together, battling zombies, rogue robots, and alien invaders, they forge lasting memories and inside jokes. These shared experiences act as a catalyst for building stronger connections, making the workplace a more enjoyable and supportive environment.

Tailor to Your Company’s Needs

Every organization is unique, which is why we designed A Step Ahead to be flexible and customizable. The ASA app makes it easy for you to accomplish your specific team-building objectives.

Whether you want to focus on specific departments, cross-functional collaboration, or inter-office competitions, the A Step Ahead’s design allows you to have the experience that’s ideal for your group. Additionally, you can integrate A Step Ahead into your existing wellness programs or initiatives, maximizing the impact on employee engagement and overall organizational health.
