Are you looking for a new way to inspire yourself? We always are! Here are three companies that we have worked with or participate in their programs. Our group is active and we are always searching for the next best thing to keep us motivated for our continued health.
Bet $5 or more as an incentive to get you to exercise. Basically, select how many days per week you will exercise and if you do not meet your goal then you lose your bet. But if you succeed, you earn a percentage of all the people that met their goal. The people who do not meet their goal for the week lose their money and that money is split with the winners. This program really gets you moving because people do not want to pay they want to earn. There is a 30 minute minimum work out time and also a gym locator to make it easy. If you are a runner you can integrate the Run Keeper to keep track of your distance and also add to your GymPact account. Please note this is an app only program but available for iPhone and Android.
