The aim of this study is to determine if participants randomized to our mHealth MapTrek game increases daily physical activity (average steps/day, active minutes/day) compared to a control group among sedentary office workers over 10 weeks. The investigators hypothesize the MapTrek intervention group will significantly increase their daily steps and active minutes compared to the control group over 10 weeks.
