Keeping up with the Joneses has reached a whole new level with the advent of the online community. Seeing the trips others are taking, the new cars they’re buying, their seemingly perfect lives. Humans, by nature, are competitive. Isn’t it time you used that competitiveness to achieve something good, to improve your overall health and fitness?
We’ve created Nexercise to harness this competitive energy in a positive way – allowing you to engage in a friendly exercise competition with friends and family. Nexercise combines networking, gaming and exercising to improve your chances for health success.
Worried that you don’t have enough time to exercise? With the Nexercise iPhone and Android app, all you need is 15 minutes of activity to qualify for great rewards and to improve your health. “15 minutes,” you say, “I thought I needed much more.” In fact, you don’t.
According to an online Reuters article, “Lead researcher Chi Pang Wen of Taiwan’s National Health Research Institutes said dedicating 15 minutes a day to a moderate form of exercise, like brisk walking, would benefit anyone. After taking into account differences in age, weight, sex and a range of health-related indicators, they found that just 15 minutes of moderate exercise a day increased life expectancy by three years compared to those who remained inactive.”
What can you do for 15 minutes that will improve your health dramatically?
- Take the stairs instead of the elevator
- Use part of your lunch hour to walk around your building
- Take your dog for a walk
- Find a workout on youtube.com – they are in abundance.

It’s easy to see that you can easily improve your health by taking small steps. You don’t need to run a marathon every day to see noticeable improvement in your physical condition.
