Miss a day or two of working out? No problem. You don't need to exercise every day to reach 100 PAI. Daily goals can be demotivating as life gets busy, and everyone needs rest days.
When possible, plan ahead
You have 7 days to earn PAI points and you can "bank" your PAI if you know in advance you won't have time later in the week.
For example, if your kids have an upcoming recital on Wednesday evening, you could do a longer or more intense workout on Tuesday, earning you more PAI.
Even if you earn 1-5 PAI on Wednesday, because you earned 20 PAI on the previous day, you'll still be able to make it to 100 PAI for the entire week.
To help you plan ahead, in the PAI Health app tap on the 'History' section - it is on the bottom navigation bar. Your PAI History allows you to see what days you've earned a lot of PAI and plan ahead for when you may not have as much time to do physical activities.
You can also navigate to 'Tomorrow' to see how your PAI Score will change tomorrow.
Remember - it's not about doing a certain number of steps every single day, it's more about doing activities that will improve your overall health and fitness level.
When planning ahead, keep in mind that the intensity of your physical activities can make a big difference. High intensity activities, which get your heart pumping the fastest, will earn you the most PAI in a shorter amount of time. So if you're short on time, try doing short bursts of high intensity exercises, like quickly walking up a steep hill, jumping jacks, or jumping rope to get your heart rate up.
Your PAI Score is a rolling 7-day score
Your total PAI Score gets recalculated every day. At the end of each day, any PAI earned 7 days ago will expire. So if you earned a large amount of PAI last Tuesday, this Tuesday those points will "expire". This is a key part of planning ahead and "banking" your PAI - if you know you'll drop below 100 PAI on a certain day, you can plan the rest of your week to ensure you're getting enough physical activity in.
Finally, the maximum PAI you can earn in a single day is 75. This means you will need to do activities on at least 2 days per week to achieve 100 PAI.
