Springwise: Could The Kickstarter Model Help People Achieve Their Fitness Goals?
New website uses crowdfunded rewards to motivate users to accomplish health objectives.
There’s no underestimating the impact of social influences on motivating consumers, and the need for a helping hand is particularly acute when it comes to reaching fitness goals. Recent examples include Finnish Heiaheia, which aims to motivate users by simply making their fitness achievements visible to friends and family. Now, HealthRally takes the concept a step further by allowing supporters to contribute money towards a tangible reward for when the user achieves a particular fitness goal.
