[prMac.com] Bangalore, India - Fitaide, a leading fitness application for the iPhone and iPod touch, today announced its '1K A DAY' Challenge which requires users to complete 50 km in 50 days. One lucky user who signs up and invites a friend to the challenge before 23rd October will win a brand new iPod touch 8GB worth $229.
"Finding a workout partner makes training both fun and effective and is particularly helpful when motivation starts flagging" stated Siva Raj, CEO Poscitech and creator of Fitaide. "We therefore conceived this contest to encourage users to train with a friend to increase the chances of achieving their fitness goals".
Fitaide V2.0 was launched in August 2010 and was ranked within Top 5 US Health & Fitness applications within a few days of launch. Its patent-pending technology allows anyone to create a personalized cardio or interval training plan. The app uses the in-built 3D motion sensor to track as the user moves and cues them to change pace to ensure they achieve their goals.
The Fitaide '1K A DAY' Challenge requires contestants to complete 50 km in 50 days, i.e. by the 23rd of October. To contest for the prize - a newly launched iPod touch 8GB worth $229 - download the free app, sign-up for the event and invite a friend. Each unique invite generates an additional entry to the contest.
