Aspire Zone Foundation has launched a user-friendly mobile application for its ‘step into health’ programme.

The new app measures how many steps a participant takes during daily routines, and will also monitor their athletic performance and compare it against the average healthy standard of 10,000 steps a day.

The ‘step into health’ app has already proven popular, attracting around 2,014 users since its launch a fortnight ago. Ranging in age between 16 and 58 years old, the app devotees have walked a cumulative total of 906,070 steps, the equivalent of 615km.

The new app provides users with a number of innovative features intended to assist in monitoring fitness levels. As well as counting steps and measuring distance, it also calculates calories and the amount of fat burnt. The app then downloads these results onto the programme’s website where participants can monitor their overall performance and achievements.

The application has been designed to have no noticeable effect on a phone’s battery life, allowing walkers to complete long-distance exercises. Furthermore, the app is the first of its kind to feature both English and Arabic and can be downloaded onto all iPhone IOS 5 and Android 2.3.3 devices.

To download the ‘step into health’ app, visit to register.

Participants will receive an email with a membership number, a username, password, and a link to download the application. Once activated, the user can format the app’s settings and language preference.

The app provides users with several advantages and unique features, allowing them to monitor their athletic progress closely by utilising motion sensors to count a user’s steps. Therefore, walkers are advised to either carry their phones in their hands or pockets while using the App to ensure an accurate step count.

The ‘step into health’ programme is one of Aspire Zone Foundation’s health initiatives which aim to engage the community in long-term, self-administered health programmes. These initiatives rely on moderate daily activity routines, such as walking 10,000 steps or more, which can be done in a recreational, non-competitive context.
