Celebrate Canada’s Birthday with 150 PAI

Mio Global, Mio Staff

This Canada Day is special because it’s Canada’s 150th birthday! And what better way to celebrate than by earning 150 PAI with your Mio SLICE.

Generally we encourage Mio SLICE users to aim for 100 PAI over a rolling 7-days, but 150 is also a very tangible goal.

Here are a couple easy ways you can push yourself, even during the hot July weather, to earn 150 PAI points for Canada.


Mio is giving away 150 SLICE devices in honour of Canada. Enter here for a chance to win your free SLICE!

There’s no better way to experience a sunrise that from the lookout point of a well-earned hike. Last Canada Day, Chasing Sunrise took 350+ Canadians to the top of Mount Seymour in Vancouver to view the sunrise together!

This extra bit of exercise is a great way to add to your weekly PAI points and won’t take extra time out of your day.

The lumberjack stereotype will never die, so like true Canadians, we embrace it. But we’re also known for caring about our environment, so when it comes to being a lumberjack, it’s best to avoid cutting down trees and wielding a large axe.

This lumberjack workout created by Darebee is the next  best thing.
