What’s a MovePoint?

A MovePoint is calculated by factoring the duration of an activity by the intensity of that activity. The longer you are active and the more intense the activity, the more MovePoints you earn.

Why not just use a term I understand, like calories?

Different people burn calories differently. You deserve equal credit for equal work, no matter what device you choose or what body your mama gave ya. That’s why I created MovePoints.

OK, so how many MovePoints will I earn for ____?

I calculate the MovePoint value for hundreds of activities using this fancy thing called the Compendium of Physical Activities generated by Arizona State University and the National Cancer Institute. This publication allows me to accurately calculate the point difference between 30 minutes of high-intensity running vs. 30 minutes of low-intensity yard work.

Here are some examples:
