Craving a healthy and hearty life but do not have the motivation or inclination to work out after a hard and dreary day at work? Fret not, the Stepathlon app might just help you along the way to a healthy lifestyle. It creates what they call a ‘Virtual World’ for mass participation of people from corporates and institutions encouraging behavioural change and a sense of teamwork. Participants can form teams where the total number of steps are calculated via a pedometer that they wear while performing activities like walking, running, playing a sport, swimming etc. Teams can participate against each other from multiple locations, making it useful for large international corporations. And boy have they pulled out all the stops in creating awareness. Partnering with the Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli himself to create Stepathon Kids. A movement created to spread awareness and guidance to kids and parents alike. The Stepathlon app is available for free on Android and iOS.
