The London Olympics are just around the corner, and there's an aura of celebration for everything sports-related. While pro athletes sharpen up their techniques and tweak their speed, all of us - amateurs definitely included - can use the Olympics as a motivating trigger.
HealthyShare, a new Facebook app launched by GE, enables just that. The app allows users to share health and sports-related goals, track progress and see how your friends are doing. Sharing with friends serves as a motivating drive, while past and present Olympians offer extra inspiration: luminaries such as Kevin Durant and Michael Johnson invite users to take the plunge and go for a swim, do some pull ups or eat more healthfully.  [Source: HealthyShare]
