After a recent illness and surgery I was looking for something to help me get back into shape. The Striiv sounded like something that would help motivate me. I had tried
pedometers and other devices before with limited success. Striiv has been different because of the motivation it gives me. It is not just a step calculator; it sends me challenges, gives me encouragement, and is a little personal trainer in my pocket. I don’t know why it has taken control of me, but if I sit down and it asks me to exercise for 3 more minutes…I do! When it says “good job Gloria” it is like a pat on the back. It has made walking fun; playing the My land game, competing with myself and a friend, chatting with other Striiv users on Facebook. I went from getting 3500 steps a day to 10,000 within a month and a half. After three months my blood pressure is down, I am sleeping better and I am off of two medications.
