Anyone ever hear of this phone app that you make a pact to go to the gym and if you fail you pay but if you go you earn money?

If you used it, thoughts?

I was thinking since I make it a point to hit the gym why not make some money on it.  My husband wants to research more on it before I sign up though.

Seems there was a post a few months back about it

You have to check in and check out of the gym and have to be there for at least 30 minutes from what I've read.

I've heard of it.  With my life as crazy as it is right now, I can't afford it!  LOL

I should try that , I'm addicted to the gym. I go every day at least once a day for about 90 mins to 2 hrs. It's so much fun, zumba and yoga are my favorite. Can you really make money? I wonder how it works?

Thats what I'm trying to find out.  I go at least 5 days a week, sometimes more.  I love going to the gym, too.  I know its a deal where if you miss your 'pact' once you get charged and you only make something like .25 each time you go but like anything it takes time to earn the rewards and I figured I'm already going to the gym why not make it earn me some cash in the meantime?

True... If you made .25 that's about $91 a year! That's like 2 mos gym membership for me!

Thats more then 4 months for me.  Worth it!  I just need to get my husband to look into it and OK it before I go and sign up.
