Okay, I’m really starting to get serious about my fitness now. I have found a website that is going to do just that. 🙂
The website is called fitocracy and it is amazing! The concept behind it is that it encourages people to do fitness by reward them in a very video game kind of way. The idea is that you track your exercise and each time the site gives you points for what you’ve done. These points then add up and once you receive enough, you go up a level! And you can also do quests, unlock achievements and participate in challenges. Fun stuff.
It also has a social media aspect where you can have groups, post comments on other people’s activities and also “give props” (give props = like on Facebook). It’s lots of fun and most of the people on the site are either normal people or geeks who just need encouragement to get away from the computer for a few minutes.
I’m loving it and getting healthy and fit at the same time.
