Nexercise, a free mobile fitness app that makes healthy lifestyle choices and exercise fun, introduced a number of brand new features. The app will continue to calculate physical activity and reward users with virtual medals, discounts on health food, and free merchandise, but now users can enjoy the challenges of an active lifestyle with new features. These features include visualizing progress, where participants can actually view their progress and monitor their exercise habits with a calendar, and the ability to track friends and family and earn points by working out together or competing against one another. Nexercise has also teamed up with Kiip, a venture-backed company, to provide users with the chance to win fabulous rewards from companies like Sephora and 1-800-Flowers.com. The app has also been redesigned with enhanced graphics and is more user-friendly than ever. “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 making physical activity more fun and rewarding through our mobile app.”
