Daily Endorphin offers a lower price point than the competition while maintaining a very high quality of service.

And Daily Endorphin keeps the prices for participation low, while yielding a high ROI.

Daily Endorphin is also easily scalable for groups of any size and type. No group is too small or large.
In Daily Endorphin’s model, teams compete with each other based on teammates’ cumulative individual effort. Although teams could exercise in groups, most individuals prefer exercising on their own. Daily Endorphin combines the motivational aspect of teamwork with the convenience of individual exercise.
Tiffany Carlson, St. Louis County, Minnesota’s Health Promotion Coordinator, was a beta-tester and became an early client. She said:
“St. Louis County employees were able to lose over 660 pounds, a 3.1 percent weight loss this past spring while competing together. Daily Endorphin’s user-friendly website and professional, upbeat, and timely service helped us be so successful.”
Daily Endorphin Director of Sales & Client Accounts, Jeff Mann, says: “This is a superior option to any tracking system you can find on line. It’s affordable, it’s simple to use, and it’s effective. Basically, it works and because of that, team members are glad to participate. They get enrolled more readily and they stay with it.”
About Daily Endorphin
With the corporate mission of “helping people establish and maintain healthy habits,” Daily Endorphin was conceived as a simple web-based program that facilitates high participation rates among people of all fitness levels. The founders wanted an interactive, self-directed site that was, in their words, a blast to use.
Perfect for groups of any size, from entire businesses to families, Daily Endorphin gets people motivated by challenging and supporting one another through the group dynamic. Daily Endorphin helps organizers manage and promote challenges that encourage employees, friends, and family to do what’s best for them: exercise more regularly and consistently.
Research confirms that the benefits of group exercise are plentiful. Group exercise boosts morale and improves the health of individual participants. Additionally, studies show that when people are encouraged to exercise with their peers, they exercise more. A little peer pressure can go a long way towards improved health.
How It Works
Daily Endorphin’s interactive web-based platform is visually attractive, provides a facile user experience and gives support to participants at every juncture. Anyone can set-up a challenge. The website offers the tools—sample e-mails, helpful tips, incentive ideas, informative literature, and the ability to communicate with, and support, each other on the site—that make a given challenge go smoothly. It can be customized in ways that make sense for the specific situation. Participants log exercise, weight, wellness or nutrition data over the course of the 60 to 90 day challenge (the recommended timeframe) and Daily Endorphin graphs and tracks each person’s exercise times and each team’s cumulative standing.
At the end of the challenge, HR professionals or group wellness managers can use the compiled data to offer fun prizes to winning teams and individuals. HR professionals and other company executives may also easily access meaningful data and reports that will show program ROI. Users may even opt to withhold the results so that they can be released at a live event dedicated to the cause. Daily Endorphin has suggestions for every step along the way.
In business settings, these group exercise challenges become a healthy investment in employees and likewise in the productivity of the entire business. Happy, healthy employees are more productive, more innovative and entice great talent to come to the organization.
