Want to take me on? The Fitness Games App Review

I love finding new workouts to do at home.  I don't belong to a gym and the chances of me signing up for a gym are not good.  I live out of town and like to keep things simple, so when I heard about the Fitness Games opportunity through Fit Approach I signed up.

So what is the Fitness Games?

It is an app you download to your phone and then you can connect with other users or not and do workouts.

Since I was given this opportunity through Fit Approach I was able to connect with a lot of other Sweatpink Ambassadors. We were given an upgrade which allowed access to more workouts than the free version.  You are also able to make up your own workouts.

Or record runs (indoor or outdoor), cycling (indoor and outdoor), rowing, swimming, and elliptical.

I got really excited when I saw I had a couple of challenges.

 I accepted it of course.  I didn't read the instructions right and I only did one round instead of three.  So I won of course.

Luckily she had challenged me two other times for the same challenge so after resting 10 or so minutes I started it over.  Except that time she had aborted early so she won.. even steven!

So what does a workout look like?  Here is the one I did for this challenge
The plank had me wanting to cry.  I don't plank.  I know some people plank like it's water.  I hate planking as much as I know it's good for me I would rather do burpees.

If you aren't sure what they mean by some of the moves, click on the move and it will show you pictures and give a description of how to do it.
There is a Feed on one of the main pages where everyone you are connected to can post things (similar to Facebook or Instagram) and you can see what people have been up to. You can comment on and like their posts.

What I like about The Fitness Games App

  • being able to do challenges on workouts with other people
  • it also tracks running, rowing, elliptical, etc
  • connecting with other people
  • the workouts are tough (the ones I have done have left me in a puddle)
  • If I want to purchase more workouts they cost $0.99, which is still cheaper than a gym membership. The Platinum version come with 16 workouts for $1.99 (which is what we were given for the review).
  • you can make up your own workouts and challenge others to do them
  • several really tough bodyweight workouts
What I don't like
  • some of the workouts use a lot of gym equipment (no gym here) I am pretty good at modifying though, but I still like to keep things simple.
  • There aren't that many free workouts, if you want more you have to upgrade
  • you can't tell if the workout you are purchasing will have a lot of gym equipment in it
  • It's a little hard to find people you know, unless you know their user name.
So what sets this apart from all the other apps out there geared towards working out?  For me I love being able to accept a challenge. I feel like it pushes me just a little bit harder.  I hate losing.  It is available on both Android and IOS.

Go ahead download it and then connect with me and send me a challenge!  My username is Christyruns     If you are on it already, find me or leave me a comment with your username and I will look you up!

Any questions?
