AmeriHealth New Jersey Encourages People to Step2It With New Pedometer App

Cranbury, NJ - November 1, 2011 - AmeriHealth New Jersey today announced the launch of its new Step2It pedometer app, which can be downloaded at no cost by visiting the Apple App Store and the Android Marketplace. The app officially goes live today in conjunction with the Cooper-Norcross “Run the Bridge” Challenge taking place this weekend. AmeriHealth New Jersey is the presenting sponsor of the event, which supports the Larc School.

“At AmeriHealth New Jersey our goal is to help individuals improve their overall health and well-being and a big part of that is providing useful tools to help people be successful in achieving their individual goals,” said Mike Munoz, vice president of sales and marketing, AmeriHealth New Jersey. “Our new Step2It app encourages people to get fit in a fun and interactive way.”

The Step2It App is designed to help individuals track and share information about their walks and runs. It allows people to update friends by sending text and social media notifications with how far they’ve gone, how long they’ve been exercising, and their top speed.

The Step2It App features allow individuals to do the following:

  • Follow the path of AmeriHealth New Jersey-sponsored walks and runs with pre-loaded routes.
  • Track where you are, using the GPS-enabled map.
  • Customize the app with your gender, height, and weight, and learn how many calories you burned.
  • Save your workouts to see just how much you improve over time.
