The Best of Zamzee 2013

2013 was a big year for Zamzee as we pursued our quest to improve kids’ health by making physical activity more fun. We launched our healthcare business and built new enterprise products to help motivate, measure and manage physical activity. Here are the highlights:

The year started out with our first-ever Zamzee original music video, created for us by a Zamzee user in high school and her little sister.

Meanwhile, all the Zamzee users were moving and taking Zamzee Challenges to earn Zamz. In March, pburdette became the first Zamzee user to earn a free XBox in 2013!

Way to go, GHA!

On the national front, this year obesity was finally recognized by the American Medical Association as a disease. This status upgrade by the nation’s largest physician group helped cement obesity’s status as a real and serious health crisis facing the nation.

Physical activity also gained important recognition over the summer. Just ask Dr. Frieden, the Director of the CDC: moving is the closest thing we have to a wonder drug.
