Mornings with Dave & Jen

Lose Weight and Win!
Lose Weight and Win!

There’s still time to shed some pounds for swimsuit season…AND get rewarded for it at the same time!

It’s a new trend called “social gaming,” where you earn prizes for working out and (unsurprisingly) after 10 weeks, the people who played the games exercised more often AND lost more weight!

Here are three apps from Men’s Health for iPhone or Android users:

Nexercise.  It rewards you for keeping track of your workouts.  Every two minutes you spend exercising equals 10 points.  Then you can redeem the points for things like Amazon gift cards.  (Check it out on Nexercise.com.)

GymPact.  This one actually charges you money if you don’t work out.  But if you DO, you WIN money.  First you decide how much to penalize yourself for each workout you miss.  Then you have to “check in” every time you exercise.  If you DON’T, you lose your money for that day.  But you get a few bucks when you DO meet your workout goals.  And it all comes from users who DIDN’T work out that week.  (Check it out at Gym-Pact.com.)

HealthRally.  It lets your friends and family pledge money for rewards like iPads and running shoes.  And you only get them if you reach your goal.  If you DON’T, then none of their credit cards get charged.  You can also pledge money to help friends with stuff like quitting smoking.  (Check it out at HealthRally.com)

Good luck with your “battle of the buldge!”
