If you are someone who struggles to change your habits or make a commitment to go to the gym, don’t worry. You can walk your way into perfect shape and also get a small reward for it.

I discovered an app Sweat Coin , founded by London based entrepreneurs Oleg Fomenko and Anton Derlyatka that counts your steps (only outdoor steps though) by transferring it into a coin currency. Yes, you earn credits by walking! What a clever idea. It is not actual money that you can withdraw from your bank account but it does give you a choice of freebies depending on how many steps you have made.

London is a walking city, which I love

Think about it, even if you are not the sporty type only going from your house to the tube station, to the shop or anywhere really, you already make thousands of steps every day that you didn’t even think about. I walk all the time around London. My app is always running on the background of my phone, counting my steps and earning coins. I am earning while walking and I am not even trying hard.

When I was pregnant I would walk 12k outdoor steps, every day. I wanted to be fit for my child and I was really very disciplined. Even during the hot summer of 2018, I would put my New York Yankees baseball hat and walk around London. I loved it.

Now I do it with a buggy which has its own challenges, it’s like walking while lifting weights, but still, it provided me with an easy and simple cardio regime, and after all multitasking is now my new way of being.

Why not get a great incentive and make your walking count? Sweat coin might not make you rich but it can get you some cool gadgets, sport clothes or just a cup of coffee. It is good fun. And if you want to lose weight, walk faster than your usual pace. Walk sweat coins.
