In just two years, users of StepJockey’s free smartphone app have turned around 8,000 stairways worldwide into part of our crowdsourced calorie burning game. It’s a sweeping global phenomenon, and we’ve just launched an awesome interactive map which shows just how far the stair revolution is spreading.
Every stair counts
Every staircase ever rated on the StepJockey website is now viewable on our new interactive world map. Not surprisingly for a London-based company, the UK is a particular hotspot, but it’s amazing to see we’ve now got stairways rated in all corners of the world from Northern Norway to New Zealand's South Island, and from the far West coast of Hawaii to Japan’s Eastern shores.
You can even see where the 50 most recently rated stairs are as these ones are highlighted green instead of orange. Think ‘Where’s Wally?’ for stairs.
A health revolution that’s storming the globe
This is no ordinary map, it’s much more clever than that. Our map also recognises how many steps have been taken and how many calories have been burned across all these stairs in total. It updates itself with live data constantly streaming in from stairs across the globe.
Right at this moment, I can see that a total of 3,653,759 calories have been burned on StepJockey stairs. By the time you read this post, hundreds more calories will have been burned.
And yes, just to recap, that’s three million, six hundred and fifty three thousand, seven hundred and nine calories burned on the stairs worldwide with StepJockey. That’s a lot! Imagine the difference that’s made to our stair climbers’ health.
