Runtastic Success Story: "Your Work Saves Lives"

My name is Andreas, I’m 45 years old and live in Vienna, Austria.  In the summer of 2012, I started working out with Runtastic.  My situation back then was, let’s say, unfortunate:  379lbs (172kg) were not a great base for high life expectancy or a happy life.

Thanks to hiking, strength training, biking, and badminton I was finally able to lose weight and was the beginning of my Runtastic Success Story.  Due to my initial weight, I had to start with hiking (exclusively), but could add the other sports activities over time.  Currently, I am mainly using Runtastic PRO to track my activities. You can have a look at my profile if you want!

…and after 14 months and countless hours spent with Runtastic, I finally did it:  I lost an incredible 185lbs (84kg)!

Today, I’m a different person, and I am so happy about it 🙂

A big THANK YOU goes out to the whole Runtastic team – your work saves lives. At least you saved mine!

And here’s one more “before-after” pic. I just love them!
