Getting in shape is never an easy, or much less enjoyable, feat to conquer. There’s no doubt that it requires some hard work and for some people, that challenge just isn’t appealing enough. But when you add a little gamification to anything, it usually adds a whole new level of entertainment and sometimes even motivation. With Fitocracy, getting in the best shape ever has never been so much fun.
Fitocracy is a new web game that helps you to improve your physical fitness. Advancement in the game is entirely dependent on how you progress in your physical activities. When you sign up for an account, you just enter your physical activities on the Play page every day. Upon completion of these activities, you earn points. Over time, you’ll earn enough points to advance to the next level, so leveling up means that you’re actually keeping up with your fitness. Every so often, leveling up will unlock a special, tougher challenge. If you beat it and level up, then you know you’re improving your fitness and making progress. You can also compete against friends for an extra layer of incentive and a little camaraderie. You’ll be seeing those results just in time for beach season.
