PORTLAND, Ore., Dec. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Just one year ago, Hubbub Health was a small start-up with a handful of followers. Today, the website boasts nearly 12,000 users nationwide and the momentum is building. Hubbub credits the success to a unique approach to wellness, using the latest social gaming methods and technology to get people excited about being healthier.

Stefanie Brown credits Hubbub to successfully getting her back to exercising, and even incorporating her daughter into her routine. "I have been working with Hubbub for two years now," said Stefanie. "Through Hubbub's health coaching challenges, I've been able to create an individualized exercise and nutrition plan that's doable with my schedule and lifestyle, simply making exercise a part of my daily routine. I'm not interested in jogging every day, so Hubbub has helped me find creative ways to get healthier. For instance, now I push the lawn mower without the power drive turned on for a work out. My daughter has even joined in on my challenges. Hubbub was a win for our whole family."

Based in Portland, Oregon, Hubbub can be accessed by visiting or by downloading the app at  the iTunes app store. Anyone can join or download the app for free, but a small fee is charged to businesses who purchase additional services such as health and wellness assessments for their employees.

Hubbub uses challenges to get participants motivated. Challenges are created by Hubbub's user community, and generated by the site as well. Users experience a community feel, with positive and fun encouragement.

Another Hubbub success story lies within its own walls. Hubbub Director of Business Development Brian Berchtold lost more than 30 pounds, and is about to run his third marathon, all thanks to Hubbub. "When I started with Hubbub about three years ago, I was out of shape, and taking medication for high cholesterol and blood pressure," said Brian. "Now, I'm off all of my medication, thanks to Hubbub."
