1. Fitocracy

Fitocracy is an online game and social network that connects you to the combined knowledge of over a half million fitness coaches, nutrition experts, and other people with a wide variety of fitness backgrounds.

When you join, other users will begin offering you Fitocracy’s version of a workout plan, called “quests”, in which you are encouraged to do a certain number of squats or other lifts and exercises. Fitocracy users log their exercise activity by selecting from a collection of activities, like weightlifting or running, and entering details such as weight lifted or distance run.

Fitocracy awards you with points based on the estimated fitness benefit of each activity. Users must reach points thresholds in order to level up. The ability to level-up, earn badges and more helps keep you dedicated to your fitness by treating it like a game.

In addition to the game, Fitocracy also provides a social network that enables you to follow other users, view and comment on their workouts, and join groups for specific interests.

2. Pact

Pact is the app that pays you for working out! To use the app, you can chose to make a “pact” to exercise, log your meals on MyFitnessPal.com, or eat vegetables for a certain number of days. How do you get paid? When you sign up for a pact, you select a certain amount–$5 or $10–that is deducted from your credit card (or PayPal account) for each day you miss. When you hit your goal, then you get paid a reward ranging from 30 cents to $5 per week as soon as you accumulate $10.

In case you’re wondering, your payout comes out of the pool of money from people who didn’t make their pact.

Pact uses GPS, photos and other services to keep you honest, and all of your actions are verified in order to count towards your Pact.

3. WODBOX

WODBOX makes it easy to stay connected to your workout programming. You can stay current with the WODs that you’re most interested in with the WODBOX app. Simply launch WODBOX and select your preferred affiliate – whether it’s from HQ or your local box, WODBOX has the WOD you’re looking for.

WODBOX also has a complete selection of WODs built in. A spin of the hopper will result in an unknown benchmark workout from the 2007–2013 Games, the Heroes, the Ladies, or one of many WODBOX Fan Tribute WODs.

What’s also neat about this app is the Genius function. All you have to do is specify the equipment you have available, and Genius will generate a random workout for you utilizing the equipment you have on hand.

WODBOX also provides journaling and tracking. With a single touch, your journal entry is ready for storage. You can also use WODBOX Baselines to track progress on specific movements or famous workouts, like Murph, Jackie, Angie and the Filthy 50!
