Nexercise delivers motivation to people who want to lose weight or get in better shape and is quickly emerging as a leader in mobile health and fitness. Now, the long-awaited Android version of the app is here. With it, Android users can finally learn why “motivation” is the word most often used by iPhone users when describing the app. With over 2,500 reviews and an average rating of 4.5 stars, Nexercise is rapidly rising in the health & fitness mobile app category. Now Nexercise is available to millions of Android users around the globe. iPhone users can now Nexercise with all of their Android friends!
How it works:
Nexercise is a free mobile app that gauges physical activity and rewards users with virtual medals, discounts on healthy products, and free merchandise. Nexercise rewards and influences behaviors, not outcomes, by making exercise fun and social while giving users opportunities to win big.
“Nexercise was built upon the belief that exercise doesn't have to be boring,” says Benjamin Young, CEO of Nexercise. “You don't have to drastically change your lifestyle in order to be healthy. Being healthy is a mindset. More often than not, the missing component to success is sustained and sufficient motivation. Nexercise challenges traditional thought by using mobile technology to deliver motivation."
Nexercise is changing lives:
One mother of two recently shared how Nexercise helped her exercise for 25 days in a row and how her new, fit, lifestyle has even dramatically improved her mood.
Another Nexerciser, who was a 300-pound diabetic less than two years ago, recounted how she started seeing consistency in her behavior and real progress after Nexercising for a few months. After a recent checkup, her doctor called to tell her that her numbers were the best she had ever seen them.
Yet another parent / working professional / graduate student states that she has not missed a day of exercise in over 60 days and usually logs at least a hour of movement every day. Something special is happening in the lives of Nexercisers and now Android owners can take part in the movement.
Nexercise creator, Benjamin Young, struggled with his weight after college. He realized this was due to a series of bad habits that slowly accumulated once he entered the workplace. When it came to being active, Ben found himself caught in a vicious cycle. He went from being a gym addict, to being unhealthy and feeling lazy, to becoming more active, only to fall off the bandwagon again.
While attending the Wharton School of Business MBA program, Ben met his Nexercise co-founders, Gregory Coleman and “Boomie” Odumade, who had been experiencing the same difficulties. Together, they realized most people must have the same frustrations and challenges when it comes to living a healthy lifestyle. Determined to make a change, Ben, Greg, and Boomie dreamed up an interactive tool that would guide people to make healthy choices and stay motivated by giving them rewards the entire way through.
Nexercise is constantly evolving, shaped by user feedback and anticipating people’s needs for the best workout experience possible while continuously adding more ways to win attractive discounts and prizes.
