So here's the deal with actLive

The actLive story
actLive was built by co-founders and childhood best friends, Cody Anderson and Connor Wynveen. Pick up football on the blacktop, hoops, skating, you name it. Their childhood friendship was all about getting outside and playing with friends. Years out of college and deep into building careers, they became acutely aware of the degree to which their new lifestyles had eclipsed those days when they had the time and access to get together to play with some friends. Not only did they have less free time to play the games they both loved, but the way they spent their time throughout the day felt indistinguishable from the past. Less easy access to getting outside and moving meant an imbalance between being glued to a computer screen vs. being active. This created ripple effects in their mental health, social lives and feeling of purpose. Boom, actLive was born.
actLive is on a mission to get the balance back between work and play. To get people back to these childhood practices. When connecting with neighborhood friends was easy. When laughing, having fun, and moving outside with friends was all that mattered.
