Nowadays, we have an app to keep track of everything in our lives. We have an app to track our sleep, to pay our bills, to order food, and pretty much anything else you could possibly want. Now there is even an app that will allow you to earn cash for simply completing your normal workouts. Sounds awesome, right? Well it is. You set how many days a week you are going to work out, and each week you complete them you make money! However, there is a catch. Every week that you do not make your pact, or number of days you agreed to workout, you have to pay in real, cold, hard, cash. Even better is the fact that you pay for each day you missed that week.
So if you made a pact to workout out five days a week and you only worked out three, then you have to pay $5 for missing one day and $5 for missing a another day, meaning you have to pay a total of $10 because you did not work out two of the days that you said you would. It is a great app for accountability, especially if you are money driven. Lol. You can set how much you have to pay per day you miss, but the minimum is $5 a day, so the stakes are high.
You have to attach a credit card to your account when you sign up so that you will automatically be paid each week when you make your pact, and you will automatically be charged every week you do not make your pact. The rewards vary from $.50 to $.75 per workout; it fluctuates based on users not making their rewards. Unfortunately, you lose more by missing a workout than you gain by completing one, but look at it this way- you are also gaining a new, and better version of yourself 😉
The workouts have to be a minimum of 30 minutes, and you have to either check in with the app once you get to your gym (it uses GPS), connect it with an app that tracks mileage for outdoor runs, or there is a specific way to track home workouts. Basically, the app makes sure that you are not trying to trick it into thinking you did a workout when you did not 😉
You can also make a pact about logging your food or eating more fruits and veggies. All the information you could ever want and need about this app can be found at gym-pact.com. Are you will to commit? 😉
