I was recently given the opportunity to try out a new app for mobile devices called The Fitness Games. It’s a competitive app that connects fitness enthusiasts from all over via virtual workout challenges! You’re able to challenge anyone, anywhere, anytime! The app is available on iPhone and Android for free!
The way I see it, the more friends the better! The more friends you have the more challengers you have available to you. The My Feed section is a lot like the Facebook Timeline/Feed. You’re able to see your friends activity and comment on it or ‘like’ it by hitting the kettleball button. TFG also has a Facebook page where you can connect with other users and add them on your app!
I was able to “compete” with one other user during my trial period. It was fun! One of the major “Pros” of this app is that it totally keeps you motivated [think Jawbone UP/FitBit with an extra boost!]. An extra ‘pro’ is that it was designed by personal trainers for workouts that are intense and effective!
If you’re anything like me, when you workout next to someone at the gym, you’re inadvertently ‘competing’ with them. And they have no idea… Their loss, cause you seriously just kicked their ass at the elliptical…. 😉 So this app is a great way to channel some of that competitive energy into something with “rewards.” … or at least recognition. Which is the most important, .. am I right!?
In a nutshell? I think that most people could benefit from the extra boost of motivation. Whether or not we WANT to admit it, we all want to ‘beat’ someone else at something. Myself included. Download it and BRING IT ON.
My username is ItsAHero. (obvy). Find me. Challenge me. I’m ready. Bring. IT.
