App of the Week: Pact

July 3, 2014

Pact is a perfect way to find motivation while working out. This app gives its user money if they achieve their pre-determined fitness goals. The app invites users to make a “pact” to accomplish certain health-related goals such as, tracking their meals on MyFitnessPal.com, exercising, or eating vegetables for a certain number of days. When people sign up for Pact, they determine the amount of money that is deducted from their account for each day they miss or fail to complete their goal(s). If they are able to successfully reach their goal(s), they receive a monetary reward for their accomplishment (s). The concept is simple: achieve your fitness goal(s) and get paid!
