Quit sitting on your ass regretting your overindulgence this Thanksgiving and get outside and get moving. Need more motivation? Download the Winter Duel app from Helly Hansen and directly challenge your friends or random strangers from around the world to workout duel. There is a chat feature built in that you can use to either motivate your opponent or for a bit of friendly trash talking or you can choose to be the strong silent type and let the results speak for themselves. In the end, however, the app does the hard work for you, tracking your distance, time spent, weather data and even route maps, all you have to do is move. After five weeks, if you outdo your competition, you win, bragging rights are yours.
Need additional motivation? If you’re one of the duelists with the overall greatest accumulated distance, Helly Hansen will invite you to one of their sponsored events, Boulder Bolder run in Boulder, Colorado or Beauty & the Beast, the United Kingdom’s toughest multi-lap marathon, and they’ll cover your expenses -event entry, transportation, and accommodation. So now, quit reading, download the app, find someone to duel, which I should point out could be one of Helly’s sponsored Olympic athletes, go for a run and show them what you’re made of.
