Better Barnet is excited to announce the launch of Moves+, a mobile application powered by OpenPlay, which will be available to all residents in Barnet. The app has been developed to inspire people to stay active while also offering attractive rewards such as free or discounted hot drinks, healthy snacks, swimming, and access to our Better gyms located in Barnet. Additionally, users can look forward to additional rewards being added throughout the year.
Why not challenge your local community or friends to stay active with you by creating your own challenges using Moves+? With Moves+, users can create custom challenges and invite friends to participate, aiming to reach the top of the leaderboard. Better Barnet will also regularly create new challenges for the community to partake in. Participants can track their progress against other Barnet residents and view their rank on the leaderboard.
Join us in taking a step towards a more active lifestyle with Moves+.
What is Moves+?
Moves+ is a free application that enables you to earn points for your physical exercise and other activities. Once you connect your tracking app or wearable device to your Moves+ account, the app will convert your actions into redeemable points for real-life incentives. You can also join challenges and groups, create your own exclusive groups, and collaborate with your friends to achieve significant milestones as a team.

Points and rewards
Join Moves+ today and start earning points for all types of physical activity, whether you're a casual walker or a top-performing athlete. The points you receive are based on the intensity of your activity, meaning the more active you are, the more points you can accumulate to redeem for rewards. In addition, you can earn extra points by participating in challenges or inviting friends to join the app.
To redeem a reward once you've earned enough points, go to the rewards tab on the app and select your desired reward. Then, visit the leisure centre where that reward is available and show your phone to a staff member. Click "redeem reward" on your phone, and the staff member will hand over your chosen reward.
How to earn points?
Points are calculated as follows:
- 100 steps = 1 point
- 1 mile running = 45 points
- 1 mile cycling = 15 points
- 100m swimming = 5 points
To ensure that points are awarded for genuine activity, our rewards-based app awards points based on the distance completed. It's important to log in with the correct activities and enable GPS to track your progress accurately.
What rewards are available?
Rewards will alternate throughout the year, example rewards can be found below:
- Hot drink
- Cold snack
