About a month ago an organization called HealthCorps reached out to me. They are a non-profit organization that is fighting childhood obesity. This movement was originally founded by Dr. Mehmet Oz and his wife, Lisa, in 2003.
When the organization first contacted me, they had asked me to test out their free iOS app, Momentum Challenge. I downloaded it a couple weeks ago, and I have really enjoyed playing around with it.
You can login using E-mail, Facebook, Twitter, or Google+. You can also connect to friends and followers through these forms of social media.
When you login it takes you to your newsfeed, and shows your recent accomplishments and that of your friends.
Based on the challenges you have completed, your profile with display a ranking and overall points. You receive points through daily challenges.
Each day has a specific challenge.
And then you can choose your Daily 5 from a long list of different nutritional, physical, and mental challenges. Point rewards can range anywhere from 5-20 points.
And the more points you earn and progress you make, you can earn badges. I don’t have very many as of now, but I’m working on it. 😉
I strongly suggest downloading this app. It gives simple, manageable challenges for each day to help you improve your health one step at a time. This is a great app to download for your kids also because it gives them a chance to earn points as added motivation to make healthy choices. It’s time to fight childhood obesity!
