Cure.fit, India’s most popular health and fitness app, announced its expansion into the United States. In response to increased demand for its platform, the app is available effective immediately on iOS and Android.
Cure.fit is an integrative health app that includes all facets of a healthy lifestyle on one platform. It has holistic health offerings across physical fitness and workouts, healthy food and mental well-being. The app provides workout classes across multiple formats dance, yoga, and strength, through the day; allowing users ample opportunities to choose the format at the time of their choice. Led by star trainers, Cult.fit tracks performance with its Energy Meter, allows users to compete with others in real-time, and offers weekly reports.
The platform’s proprietary Energy Meter helps users understand the effort they put into each workout. Once the camera is enabled, explosive movements can be captured and the user is assigned an energy score which lets them compete with others in the class to obtain a class ranking at the end of each session.
According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, more than 75 percent of adults do not meet the guidelines for both aerobic and muscle-strengthening activities and less than five (5) percent of adults participate in 30 minutes of physical activity each day. Only one in three adults received the recommended amount of physical activity each week. Moreover, approximately 90 percent of Americans eat more sodium than is recommended for a healthy diet and the reduction of sodium could save up to $20 billion a year on medical costs.
