Studies have shown that working out with a friend can help you meet your fitness goals. Adding a friend to your work out, even remotely, can provide you with motivation and incentive to keep your fitness plans on track.
At Fitbit.com, you can share your stats across your social network. Integrations with popular apps and websites, including Facebook, allow you to share your achievements with your friends, and you can share as much (or as little) as you want with your Fitbit friends. If you’re Fitbit friends with someone, you also have access to leaderboards that show everyone’s averages by week and can compare how you’re doing in relation to your friends.
Now that we’re in the middle of the holiday season, having that extra support to get you through all of the obstacles is even more important. During the holidays we are so much more at risk to fall off the fitness wagon. With meals that can add up to over 4,000 calories in one sitting, the need for fitness friends during this time is so much higher.
Fitbit Trackers also make great holiday gifts for anyone on your list looking to live healthy for the new year, but you don’t need to wait to get your fitness friends together. Find your motivation over the holidays with friends, and stay healthy all year long!
