Fitbit, one of the OG fitness apps, just launched its Community feature. You'll be able to post and see what others are doing in a feed, including posts from Fitbit’s health and fitness experts. Fit is a more engaging social experience that offers more ways to connect with others, designed by Fitbit to build on the success of their online support network. Another cool feature: You can challenge friends to a virtual race from one Yosemite mountain to another (35,800 steps) or the equivalent of an NYC marathon (57,000 steps) with the Fitbit app. Stunning visuals of real-life locales offer extra motivation.
Set your own #squadgoals
Hey! VINA, launched by two girlfriends who work in San Francisco’s IT industry, suggests friends based on personality and lifestyle quizzes, proximity and mutual Facebook friends. You can even join communities specifically created for health-minded women, including runners, “sober sisters,” and yogis. More than 100,000 women signed up for the app in the first six months. Curious about the app’s name? It’s based on a networking group that one of the founders started called “Ladies Who Vino.” Vina is also a Scottish girl name meaning “beloved” or “friend.” – Anne Bokma
