Greator produced exclusive content for the "Motivating Daily Impulses" section. With this, Fitbit wants to offer its customers an even more comprehensive service in their own health management.

Cologne, November 2020 - Greator, Germany's largest coaching platform for personal development, is the official cooperation partner for the launch of Fitbit Premium in Germany.

You guys are so great. Please more of this!" But also the participating speakers expressed their enthusiasm: "Great! This is the new gold standard of online events!". praises the well-known memory trainer and speaker Markus Hofmann, who gave a lecture at the Greator Online Festival on the topic of "Using the tricks of the memory world champions to become a super brain".

Despite the Corona pandemic, we have not only been able to reach many more people through the new online format, but we have also been able to do so without barriers or travel costs for participants. This brings us closer to our goal of continuing to provide the best content from top international speakers and coaching to as many people as possible in an affordable way," says Greator's Managing Director, Alexander Müller.
