No point fighting it really. We’re the Ghostbusters of this day and age. The only downside of our tech-brilliance is:
While we’re enriching our minds on a daily basis, our bodies are wasting away.
Somehow, sitting in front of a computer all day, every day, wasn’t a part of Gods all mighty plan. Unfortunately, this can result into the following clichés: either you’re a skinny pushover or you’re a fat guy with a serious lack of hygiene. Well they fixed that. Or at the very least, they”re working on it. Fitocracy sweeps in and saves the day.
What is this black magic you speak of?
Well this website is designed especially to help you get back in shape. But for real this time. No scams, no credit cards. Just a free service that improves your quality of life. At least, it worked for me. Thus far it’s a work in progress and only open to those who have an invite (and I happen to have some left…).
I’m not convinced.
Shut up and let me finish. The secret lies within our competitive minds. I for one, love to game. And I love to win. You create a profile and start at level 1. By doing exercises, you gain points and reach the next level. You can unlock badges, complete quests and achievements and log all your activities. Like foursquare, but useful.
The best way to start, is by joining with a friend and turn it into a competition. I started with a buddy of mine and each time he leveled before me, I just went out and tried to score some extra points. Like Facebook, you can check your wall and see what the others are doing. All the peeps are great and help you with all your questions and struggles. Once this goes public, nerds and geeks will be unstoppable.
Seriously, give it a shot. After a couple of weeks, I decided to join a gym, just to keep up with the rest of the community. I’ve been there for about a month now and I’ve never been more motivated in my life.
