Make your move.
Claim your city.

We’re making cardio a giant game of team turf war, where you claim the parts of town you walk, run, or bike through

"When I get the [turf stolen] notification, it immediately makes me want to go back out for a run"

Joe Bell

"It tracks all my stats but now there’s a new element of competition to my run"

Dori Eversmann

"I find myself zig-zagging across my neighborhood on runs  just to claim that little bit of extra turf"

Albert Briggs

How it Started

During quarantine, I like many others struggled with finding the motivation to go outside and stay active. Faced with running by myself or not doing any cardio, I decided not to do any - however, I knew that wasn't the best for my health, and it made me wonder how could I create fun around cardio the same way activities like basketball & HIIT workouts do.

Thinking about platforms that have accomplished this, my first thought came to Pokemon Go, and it made me wonder: "Could one duplicate the Pokemon Go experience for a cardio fitness app?"

And from those thought experiments,
Cardii.io was born!
