User Testimonials

Through informative sessions on diabetes prevention, a variety of exercise classes, and daily walking challenges with Sweatcoin, the Decathlon programme has helped me significantly improve my physical and mental health. I was shown how small changes to daily habits make a huge difference to my long-term wellbeing. This programme has shaped my health habits for life. I now have the knowledge and tools I need to make lasting, positive changes.

I'm a male teacher in my mid-30s, and since I started using Sweatcoin, I've noticed a significant improvement in my mental and physical wellbeing. When I downloaded the app, it was a wake-up call to see how few steps I was actually taking. Now, Sweatcoin motivates me to stay active and reach my daily target of 10,000 steps.
What I appreciate most about Sweatcoin is that it has helped me to improve my overall health and wellbeing. I feel better both physically and mentally, and I have more energy to tackle the challenges of daily life. I would definitely recommend Sweatcoin to anyone who wants to lead a more active and healthy lifestyle.
