Virgin Pulse (formerly Virgin HealthMiles)
Lockheed Martin is partnering with Virgin Pulse (formerly Virgin HealthMiles), Inc. to offer a physical activity tracking tool designed to get you moving and help you reach your personal fitness goals. Virgin Pulse is a web-based resource that helps to motivate you to increase your daily activity, easily track and monitor your progress, and manage all of your fitness information in one place. It provides the tools, information and tracking methods you need to start and/or maintain a personal program of regular physical activity. Most importantly, it makes fitness fun! You even have the opportunity to challenge your co-workers and spouses to friendly physical activity competitions.
Who Can Participate
- All non-represented and represented benefit-eligible employees, including those on paid leave of absence. Eligibility is not determined by health plan selection. Employees and spouses/same-sex domestic partners do not need to be enrolled in the LM HealthWorks Plan or any other Lockheed Martin sponsored health plan to participate.
- Spouses and same-sex domestic partners.
- The program is designed so that all employees, including those with certain types of disabilities, can still participate.
- Retirees, child dependents and employees of PAE, Savi, Sandia, TCNs, and LCNs are not eligible to participate.
How It Works
- Sign up. Sign up following the instructions under the "How to Enroll" section of this webpage and receive one free GoZone pedometer.
- Download the software. You will need the iSync software to upload your steps from your pedometer. Employees should follow these instructions carefully depending upon your Business Area. You may need to reboot your computer to activate the iSync software. If you are upgrading to the iSync version 2.0, you may have to uninstall version 1.0 before installing version 2.0.
If you experience problems during the software installation on your LMC-issued computers, call the Lockheed Martin Service Desk at 1-800-435-7063 for assistance.

Pedometers & Security
Both the GoZone pedometer and iSync software provided by Virgin Pulse have been tested and approved by LM Corporate Information Security (CIS), the LM Desktop Council, and IT representatives from each of the Business Areas.
At certain secure/classified areas or at customer sites, the iSync software may not be permitted to be downloaded on to an LMC and/or customer-issued computer. In these cases, employees have the option to download the iSync software to a non-LMC, non-customer-issued computer and then upload their step data outside of the work environment. At certain secure locations, it may also be prohibited to wear the GoZone pedometer due to site-specific security requirements. Please contact your LM Security Representative for guidance. All employees should understand that the use of the GoZone pedometer at these sites is contingent upon individual site approval.
Please note: If you purchase a Polar Heart Rate Monitor through Virgin Pulse and are a Lockheed Martin employee, you are not permitted to use your Polar Heart Rate Monitor with LMC-issued computers at this time.
*If you and your spouse/same-sex domestic partner are both Lockheed Martin employees and covered under the LM HealthWorks Plan, the employee who is listed as the Plan subscriber would be eligible to receive HealthFund incentives (up to $600). The employee listed as a spouse/same-sex domestic partner would be eligible to receive HealthFund incentives (up to $200).
