Have you seen the recent ads for the newly launched Nike+ FuelBand?
The FuelBand measures your activity in Fuel points, that you can set daily to complete and compete with friends! It also measures calories burned and steps taken. It’s a great tool if you’re competitive and like the idea of a digital log to keep track of all your activity. It syncs with your phone (iPhone or Android) and with your home computer. Think you’re activity counts? You gotta earn those Fuel points!
On October 31, 2012 I was lucky enough to be a part of a small group of local runners in Toronto to participate in a launch of the Nike+ FuelBand. What was our mission? Oh, just run the streets of Toronto with Canadian Olympic Gold Medalist Simon Whitfield!
What. An. Experience.
We flash mobbed busy intersections, ran through the Toronto Eaton Centre and did an impromptu workout session in front of the Nike Running Store! All earning Fuel points along the way! Running, counts. Squats, count. Walking, counts. Jumping Jacks, count. Push ups, count.
All in all we ran, we lunged, jumped, stopped traffic, laughed, posed for pics and got to chat with an amazingly humble and gifted Olympian.
Thank you Nike Running Canada! Awesomeness, counts.
Oh and my first day of FuelBand use? Goal met and smashed!! 🙂
