How MaShunda Combatted Depression With The Help of PumpUp

Tired short-term, ‘quick-fix’ solutions, MaShunda (@shundyg) decided to join the PumpUp community in September 2014 in search of consistent motivation to lead a more healthy and active lifestyle. Ever heard of the lemonade diet, military diet, and ‘cabbage soup’ diet? MaShunda has tried them all. “They would only work for a little while, but I was not healthy,” she explained. “I felt fatigued and flabby.” Our app is the only social network that she uses! “So far, it has been completely life-changing,” she professed.“I try to stay away from social sites because of the negativity that they manifest, but I don’t know what I would do day to day without PumpUp.”
