Many people set goals for themselves every year. Unfortunately, many of those individuals do not achieve their goals. Sometimes, life gets in the way and it becomes easy to fall off track. Fitango was created to help individuals come up with a solid plan of action and stick with it. The concept is simple and can assist many people in achieving their goals. The user can create a plan or browse for one created by an expert. Users can also converse with Fitango experts to get answers to questions related to their plan. The site offers additional user interaction in two ways. Users can invite others to be their motivators. When a user agrees to be a motivator, a progress bar appears on their profile for the other user. They can leave encouraging comments and commend the user for each small success. The other way is through collaborative plans. Multiple individuals can work on a plan together, such as a plan to take a group trip to an exotic location.Show more screenshots »
