Walking Your Way To Health With Fitbit

It’s amazing what a little bit of competition and technology can do for your motivation. Almost a year ago, my work instituted a new health initiative to try and get people up from their desks, more active and more motivated to take control of their health. While they had some pretty incredible prizes the first few quarters that the program was put into place, the habits certainly were changing across the company. Oddly enough, my Mother and Father also decided to take up a new walking initiative too. Ironically enough, we both got the same products and I don’t think I’ve ever seen my father so motivated to hit his daily step count. The simple movement that Fitbit has created has not only changed the health habits of nearly my entire company, but been the driving force to my Father walking over 10 miles, and 30k steps, nearly every day.

When I started browsing two major event ticket sites I was alarmed at the ticketing practices that I found.
