Striiv - to become a better you TODAY! With special #Giveaway 4-24



Striiv’s vision is to motivate people, and we started with a simple question: “What if?”
What if walking to lunch, taking the stairs, and walking our dogs could feel like play? What if we could create a fun experience that motivates us to get fit, donate to charities, and spend more time with family and friends?  At Striiv, we believe that getting in shape should fit around your schedule, and more importantly, it should be fun! Remember how exciting it was to play games like kickball during recess?

When most of us think about “fitness” today, we think of taking time out of our busy schedules to go to the gym. The reality is, between work and family, we don’t have time anymore. Striiv’s first product is designed to help us spend more time together while getting fit, giving back, and having fun. This is our first step – come join us as we create a movement around movement!



Personal Challenges
As you walk, you accumulate energy (it’s like money or points in a game). Select a challenge, wager your energy, and push yourself farther than you thought possible. Striiv’s time based challenges are designed to keep you motivated - bet on yourself and win!

Donation /Walkathons
At Striiv, we believe helping others is core to improving yourself. That’s why we’ve created a walkathon in every Striiv device that counts your steps and gives based on your movement. At no cost to you, Striiv and corporate partners donate on your behalf. Just walk, earn, and plug into your PC to donate. It's that simple. You have the choice of 3 charities - providing clean water to families in South America, polio vaccines, and help save the rainforest. The more you walk, the more you give.


Myland Game
Myland is a game that is designed for non-gamers. Our concept is simple - make an addictive game powered by walking and you will walk more! You start with an enchanted island. Your goal is to bring back the animals that inhabit the island by planting trees and building huts. The only catch is that growth and new levels are based on walking, running, and taking the stairs. It's simple, fun, and motivating.


My Take:
Striiv is truly a personal trainer in your pocket! I love it. I honestly think seeing the results every day of how many steps I've walked, and how many stairs I've climbed really helps.  Of course I'm one of those people that loves a challenge too, so I'm always trying to beat my previous day. I haven't logged in yet to use my points to donate to the charities yet, but I am so excited about that whole aspect. It's given me some added motivation to step up my fitness routine having the incentive of helping others in need at the same time! The Myland game is really cute too, and it gives me something to do when I have a few minutes of downtime, or when I stop for a break on a walk. I really couldn't say anything but good things about Striiv.
