Like-Minded MyFitness Pal Users Creating Tribes 

A tribe is defined as a group of like-minded individuals.

MyFitnessPal, an online and app-based program that aids those looking to lose weight and get in better shape by exercising, has discovered that its users have created their own tribes - Fitness Tribes as MyFitnessPal is now calling it.

The company started to produce trend reports from its data and survey results and learned some interesting information:

  • 64% surveyed belong to at least one Fitness Tribe
  • top group workouts for 2013 and so far in 2014 are yoga, Zumba and group indoor cycling.
  • 24% joined a gym with another tribe member

And using the stats and survey results from its 65 million users it has also discovered that those who use MyFitnessPal’s food diary lose twice as much weight.

MyFitnessPal has created a free eBook, The Rise of the Fitness Tribe from MyFitnessPal, which delves deeper into Fitness Tribes.
