Some, maybe most of us fret the thought of doing exercise because it connotes to a tiresome and laborious activity and aggravates the tiredness especially when we suffer Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS). It’s a horrible feeling, right? Aside from that, our working schedules, unplanned appointments, and night-outs often got in our way, making us hard to stick to our exercise regimen.
If you found yourself seeking some motivation to get you into the mood of exercising, then the rising popularity of the augmented-reality game Pokémon GO – Niantic, Inc. is the one you might be waiting for!
It’s only been a few weeks since Pokémon GO was released in the United States, but it’s already been on the top of the most downloaded app more than Tinder. What makes this game unique is it promotes body coordination and activity. You get to exercise your legs as you search and capture some Pokemon! You get to be walking around and exercise while you’re enjoying playing the said game!
Let’s hear the positive and healthy remarks it garnered from its players:
Let’s guess 1,000,000 people played #PokemonGO the last 4 days and walked at least 1 mile a day. 153,000 marathons already! A health triumph
