Striiv – For Yourself and for Charity

How many of us love to exercise? I know its the best thing for me, and I promise myself every year that I am going to do my best to be more active, but I cant say I’m doing everything I can to keep myself healthy, or to ensure that I’ll be around for a good long time. What if there was something that could motivate me to stay fit, and help others at the same time?
Check out Striiv, a personal trainer that fits in the palm of your hand. Designed to get you up and moving, Striiv uses walkathon type contests and challenges to get you in your best shape ever, but that’s not all, based on your logged movement, Striiv donates to a charity in your name. There’s nothing like helping others to get you going. The more you walk, the more you give, at no cost to you!
More than just a fancy pedometer, the Striiv uses highly addictive applications built around your movement. Striiv was designed by a group of  developers who created some of the coolest apps and games for your Smartphones and PC’s. Now you just don’t play the game, you’re part of them!
You can play games, take challenges and chart your progress. All the while Striiv counts your steps and actually applies them to helping others. “Just walk, earn, and plug into your PC to donate.” You have the choice of 3 charities that include, donating water to cities in South America, purchasing and administering polio vaccines, or savings trees in the rainforest. The more you walk, the more you give.
Striiv is available at for around 99 bucks, and comes with everything you need to get started.
