GymPact - Bet On Your Fitness

Holy moly...It's been a week since I last posted!

Well, as bad as that is, at least I wasn't away from the gym for a week. Maybe that's my excuse for you. Yes, I haven't been blogging because I've been logging mad hours at the gym. Ha, OK, well not that crazy...just the norm. BUT, I have a feeling that I will be logging mad hours at the gym starting on Monday...

I'm checking in with you today to tell you about a new app I just installed on my iPhone last night. It's pretty dang cool. I have yet to be really involved in it enough to give a full review, but I think I'm going to like it.

Here's the preface: Money is probably one of the biggest, if not THE biggest, motivators out there, right? So what would you do if I told you that for every workout you promised to do that you didn't do, you'd have to pay $5, or more?

You probably would stop missing workouts then, right?

On the flipside, for every workout week where you completed your promised workouts, you get paid from the big money pot thanks to non-exercisers.

This app is called GymPact.

There are a few Golden Rules, of course. One major one being that you have to have proof of workout by GPS. This app syncs with RunKeeper, the running app I just so happen to use. So it will record those workouts for you automatically. Then you have to use the "Check-In" method you do via GPS to prove your ass was at the gym.

You get to choose what you promise. You can promise 3 workouts a week, or 5, or 7...whatever. BUT, don't promise what you can't truly handle because you'll be paying up. You choose whether you pay the $5 minimum, or more, per workout missed. You can link your debit/credit card or a PayPal account. They will automatically deposit any funds you earn when you tell them to disperse them to you.

Anyway, that's pretty much it. I start my pact next week. I have promised 5 workouts for next week between Monday and Sunday {that's how pact weeks run}.

Hope some of you start making workout promises and sticking to them!
