buddyboost is a new, free app to help you feel healthier, happier and more connected to friends or family members
It’s never been more important to stay active, be well and to support our friends – and buddyboost will help you do that.
Buddy-up (virtually) with a maximum of 6 friends, family members or colleagues and support each other to do 26 minutes of physical activity a day.
It can be any activity and it’s not competitive. We don’t care how far or how fast you go, just that you do your 26 minutes and help your buddy to do theirs.
The buddyboost app helps you to log your daily activity & mood, so that you can easily keep track of how much exercise you've done and how it has (hopefully) improved your mood. Keep an eye out, too, for challenges that we will be introducing throughout the year.
You almost certainly won't be doing your 26 minutes of activity with your buddies physically alongside you, so our buddy mechanic allows you to boost your friends when they have completed their 26 minutes of exercise, or give them a gentle nudge if that armchair has been just a bit too comfortable that day....
buddyboost also contains lots of videos, playlists and resources to help you stay fit and well.
So download the app, buddy-up and start to feel healthier and happier together, 26 minutes at a time.

Great app and easy to use
Buddyboost made me feel more connected with my friends and family during lockdown, and kept my spirits up on days when I felt like staying in bed, because I had to get up. Completing the 26 minutes with a friend through the app, or with a family member left me with a sense of achievement. Would definitely recommend!
This app got me walking in the pouring rain
Heavy rain was forecast all day yesterday. Ordinarily I would have spent the day indoors with a dose of cabin fever, but Mayathon was playing on my mind, as was the October challenge. Thanks to Mayathon, I pulled myself together, put on a raincoat and went out walking with my neighbour (who also happens to be a Mayathon buddy) — we walked 10km's, put the world to rights and by the time we got back we felt happy and energised.
I love the idea of 26 minutes, it's not too overwhelming, yet makes a big difference. I also love that it doesn't matter that my Mayathon buddies are all at different fitness levels — all that matters is the 26 minutes.
Thanks Mayathon for your support and encouragement. Brilliant app!
Great for workplaces getting active and building community
We used Buddyboost as part of our company well-being programme and it was easily the most effective thing for getting colleagues active, creating togetherness, fun and banter and generally helping improved moral. Especially good for those of us working remotely or from home during the lockdowns.
