I am a December 2011 graduate from Cornell University's School of Hotel Administration and am from Dallas, Texas. I have internship experience in the hospitality and financial services industries and will be pursuing an analyst role in investment banking next fall. I enjoy listening to people's random but ingenuous ideas and acting upon those ideas to change the world for the better--or at least to make people's stressful lives a little less stressful. I enjoy looking at the business aspects of the the Food & Beverage industry (whether it be restaurants or supermarkets), and my favorite tv shows are Bizarre Foods and Man Vs. Food on the Travel Channel. If you'd like to talk about anything from current events to retail stores, I'd love to chat with you.
An idea worth spreading
Create an iPhone app called "Workout Buddy," where people who want to start working out can be paired with another like-minded person.For those who want to start or go back to the work-out groove but aren't motivated to go themselves, people can better motivate themselves to go to the gym when they know someone else is right beside them, following the same cause to lose weight.
I would like to create an application where people can be paired with other people (aka their new "workout buddy") based on their gym locations and weight-loss goals.
I know there is an iPhone app already that incentivizes people to work out through money, but what about an app that motivates people to meet a new workout buddy, gain a stronger sense of commitment, and be more likely to follow-through their work-out plans?
I look forward to hearing from anyone regarding this idea.
