Exercise Gamification

If part of the reason you never work out is simply because you don’t think exercise is fun, consider trying out the following apps.

Fitocracy (free)

fitocracy

Fitocracy tracks your activity and grants you points accordingly. You level up and earn virtual badges, as you complete workout milestones and finish quests, giving you additional incentive to get up, get motivated, and off the couch. Furthermore, you can make friends and follow other Fitocrats if you want to give props or leave an encouraging comment.

The Walk ($3)

the-walk

Doctors agree that spending 30 minutes walking can greatly improve your overall health. Six to Start Studio’s app encourages just that, prompting you to get moving throughout the course of 51 episodes, 800 minutes of audio, and hundreds of miles. The story revolves around the aftermath of a bomb explosion in the U.K., but you can partake nearly anywhere you can walk.

7 Minute Superhero Workout ($3)

You’re the pilot of Aegeis, a battleship tasked to save the world from alien invaders by engaging in “killer” core and bicep workouts. Saving the world from the impending invasion essentially means you must complete a series of 7-minute workouts, which rely on your ability to perform an onslaught of crunches and air punches a la Rocky.

Google Fit (free)

Although not a game, per se, Google’s comprehensive fitness app lets you track steps, distance, and pace with ease. It also quickly distinguishes between running, walking, and cycling, with the option to set recommended goals and sync with an array of other fitness apps to display all your biometric data in one place. The minimalist interface looks great, too.
