Why a Fitness Tracking App Can Change Your Life

You may have heard of Shawn Achor’s ripple effect. In his book “The Happiness Advantage” he writes how, when you pick up one good habit it can ripple into other areas of life.

At Fitlink we think downloading one simple piece of tech, and using it over the long-term, can cause the ripple effect. Wellness equals success in work and in life; not just for an individual but on a global scale.

Real Data using the Fitlink App

Fitlink has its own app and dashboard so you can truly monitor your wellness activities without having to guess. Sustained behaviour change is really the focus, and without clever tech, you can’t track your progress. The mind easily forgets, but when your activities are stored they can be used. You’ll have a reliable method that helps you keep going on your fitness journey.

You’ll be motivated because you’ll be accountable. We’ve seen how apps like Strava and Runkeeper have changed the way people exercise. We’ve got to the point when we say if it’s not on Strava, did it even happen? It’s frustrating when one of your friends is on one app but you’re on another. The cool thing about the Fitlink app is that it connects them all together, so you can see what all your friends are doing, in the same place, at the same time. Most of all, if you’re able to share your activity with all friends, you’ll have more fun.


Humans are social animals and we want to feel like we matter. Belonging to a tribe of athletes, friends and employees can really give you a boost. At work you can create a culture of wellness; one that believes that prevention is better than cure.
Your mental and physical wellbeing will ripple into other aspects of your life. As Achor puts it; “ When it comes to the pursuit of success and happiness, most people assume the same formula: if you work hard, you will become successful, and once you become successful, then you’ll be happy.”

But it’s the other way around. If you’re happy, you’re more likely to succeed.

That is why Fitlink exists. If you’re happy, fit and well, your quality of life will go up and so will your quantity of work.
