Background: Workers’ cardiovascular health can be influenced by individual willingness to practice healthy behaviors. A mobile health management program with a challenge strategy was administered to promote workers’ healthy behaviors among small to medium-sized enterprises. Methods: A 12-week program consisted of health communication with a challenge strategy was administered to the workers. Results: The intervention group showed significantly improved scores for cardiovascular disease-related health behavior (Z = -2.44, P = 0.013), the job stress contributing factor of inadequate social support (F = 4.10, P = 0.049), and the cardiovascular disease-related health status of waist circumference (t = 3.22, P = 0.004), body fat (Z = -2.23, P = 0.024), and triglycerides (Z = -3.04, P = 0.001). Conclusion: This study’s significance is its potential for increasing the convenience and joy of participating in intervention programs and acquiring health information through mobile platforms, which are easily accessible to the workers.
