Fit Your Brain, The app

The alternative way to combine exercise with cultural experience

In a context of a university project, we have created a team consisted of five members with the purpose of creating and promoting a new idea. We came up with the project “Fit Your Brain” which is an app that combines body healthiness and mind development. It is based on the Greek quote of “Νους υγιής ετ σώματι υγιή”, which means a healthy mind and a healthy body. Our main goal is to encourage people to take control of their lives. We intend to achieve that by creating an application that combine two fundamental values, athletism and culture.

Part 5.Storytelling

Being a college student, doesn’t always mean hanging out with friends or going to parties, sometimes it means a bunch of essays and a lack of money. Indeed, while disgusting with co-students, I realized how tricky the indepented life could be. Sometimes it’s hard to make friends, sometimes you find yourself stuck in front of a computer, doing nothing productive, or sometimes you forget all about your healthiness. Take me as an example; Preventing myself from being a totally couch potato I’ve started searching for a gym or a health club, only to discover how out of my budget they really were. It was those realizations that brought my friends and I-all having a strong interest in culture studies-to search for a solution that will combine all of those matters.

We wished to find out a clever idea, that could save us from spending all of our money on a gym, we would probably quip after a week or two-to be honest and that could also keep us motivated on our culture interests. Cause do you know how hard it is for a provincial student to keep up with all of the museums and the artistic events, especially in a brand new city? Well we do. It is hard and sometimes can be really frustrating. So we usually find ourselves composing amazing excuses to skip all of these and just stay home, while at the same time, life isn’t waiting for us and we are turning older. Do you want to turn 80 and have no memories at all? We know we don’t.

So we introduce you to Fit Your Brain an application that will change your life! Not on Monday but right now, right away! So wake yourself up! What are you waiting for? Let’s have an adventure! Built some memories, make new friends and return home proud, after a long, productive and energetic day, we will all remember. There’s no need to be just once. You can do it once a week, twice or as many times as you wish, as the choices are plenty.

We prepare for you, the perfect root, based on your very personal needs and preferences, to keep you going! The important thing to remember is that Fit Your Brain isn’t just an application. It is a lifestyle. Have you ever heard of the Greek quote of “Νους υγιής ετ σώματι υγιή”? It means the importance of the composition of body and mind healthiness. Beware though; our mission isn’t based on those starved, zero-sized models or six-packs show offers ‘prototype. It simply introduces you to a better way of living and constant self improvement, focused both on body and mind that will keep your heart pounding, happily! And so, this is also our motto; “Make a change”! Exchange your life with a better one, while changing your lifestyle.

Even though, this app is inspired based on a student‘s life struggles, it is not consumed only on that.
