Walk a Friend works both on internet base and as mobile application. It will help you find motivation to start and maintain physical exercising and healthy lifestyle. With the application you can find same minded people, who want to start exercising or already do it but a friend for walks is missing.
In the development of the concept we have paid special attention to motivation, mental wellbeing, social needs and physical activities which are easy to start as walking, nordic walking and light jogging. With Walk a Friend-application you can:
-Find friends for walking and outdoors in your neighborhood and while travelling
-Find friends who have similar interests and hobbies
-Publish photos which encourage people to exercise
-Write and exchange ideas with your present and new friends
We continuously develop our Walk a Friend-application and bring new features into it in the near future. We also produce and share health related articles and stories both on our Facebook-site and on this website.
Nowadays there are thousands of applications and devices which have been developed to measure your physical performance. There are devices which measure your sleep, workout, activity levels, caloric expenditure etc. They measure time, distance, speed, duration and results, which will motivate the user to increase his/her performance and lead the way towards healthier and more active lifestyle. Health, happiness and long life are things which most of us seek. All these applications and devices may very well work with people, who already have the motivation to exercise and keep fit. These people are also quite often competitive and therefore it makes everything even more interesting when you can compare your results with other people. You can see a lot also this in the social media.
Area where you walk is also important. For most of us it is most comfortable to walk around the neighborhood where you live or where you work. Make plans and schedules for your walks with your friends and if you want, you can even keep diary about your walks. And remember, weather is never an excuse. There is no bad weather, there is just bad clothing. And if you need friends to walk with, our Walk a Friend-application will help to find them. Walking is much more fun with friends.
