Arnav Dalmia — If Sitting Is The New Smoking, Cubii Has A Fantastic Solution

<p>For the next few weeks, I’ll be releasing a few podcast conversations in partnership with the <a href="https://www.clintonfoundation.org/clinton-global-initiative/meetings/cgi-university" target="_blank">Clinton Global Initiative</a>. I attended their yearly event a few weeks ago and was able to record conversations with some of their alums. Each podcast will include a short introductory conversation I had with Chelsea Clinton. Today’s conversations is with the fantastic Arnav Dalmia.&nbsp;</p><br><p>5 years ago, Arnav graduated from CGIU. 4 years ago, he and his two co-founders launched their new company, <a href="https://mycubii.com/" target="_blank">Cubii</a>. Simply put, their mission is to get people moving more. Hundreds of millions of people across the globe spent 7, 8, 9, and 10 hours per day sitting at a desk or in front of a TV. Or both! Mayo Clinic actually calls “sitting the new smoking.” So, how do they aim to end this epidemic? He and his pals invented <a href="https://mycubii.com/" target="_blank">Cubii</a>—”a compact seated elliptical trainer that integrates exercise into your routine, turning sitting time into active time.” What’s cool about the product is that your data is stored in the system and shared with your accountability partners or office mates so you can cheer each other on or if you’re the slacker, your people can encourage you to pick up the pace. 4 years into their company, they have 100,000 active users all over the world!
