Try Addaero. The most popular resolution every year is to get back into shape. Since Colorado is one of the most active states in the country, it's likely your resolution goes a bit further. Maybe you want to run a marathon or finish a triatholon. Even if it's not quite that ambitious, Addaero is designed to help push you to meet your goal. Their web-based training tools are designed to track and analyze your progress and even connects you with other individuals with similar goals. It even synchronizes your fitness data from popular wearables like FitBit and Garmin to make sure every achievement is recorded.

Be green:

Check out Simple Energy. Start analyzing your energy usage with Simple Energy, a program designed to show consumers how they're using energy. Their website compares that data with others in their community and even gamifies the process into a competition complete with a leaderboard. As you change your energy habits you can earn badges and reward points. Saving energy just got a lot more fun. 

Travel more:
