Some people love the atmosphere at the gym and find that it drives them to work harder, better and faster. However, most reluctant gym bunnies tend to get bored of staring at that white wall and dodging the sweat of the guy working out next to them. So, just think how much more motivated we’d all be if our work outs took place inside a video game and not a dingy room…
Fit Freeway is a new iOS application, which works alongside regular cardio machines to track exactly how you’re exercising. It closely reads all kinds of subtle vibrations and movements, which are then translated into actions on a video game on the screen. So, the faster and harder you work the better you’ll do inside the game. The thing we love most about the app is you don’t just run through a fake field or bike down a fake road, but you essentially ‘become’ a racing car, and you can steer it by tilting your head left or right.
We think Fit Freeway is a very interesting app that could well give people the extra shot of motivation they need when they’re working out. But however much you and your body may benefit, just be prepared to look a bit silly while you’re doing it.
You can download Fit Freeway from the iTunes store for £1.99.
