When you think of rewarding yourself for working out, you may envision donuts, pizza, and other treats. While I’m not one to shy away from delicious food, I also realize that you may not want to celebrate every gym achievement with a high-calorie meal. Luckily for us, there are many ways to “treat yoself” without totally throwing your diet and exercise plans off course.
Below are 5 awesome apps that will help you celebrate your victories, milestones, and achievements, all while staying on track!
Diet Bet is a great tool for people who are trying to lose weight and are highly motivated by competition. Each game is comprised of people who set a weight loss goal and place money in the pot. After four weeks, the players who meet their goals split the cash!
PACT is another competition-based fitness reward app. With PACT, you earn cash by setting and achieving healthy living goals such as eating better or working out more often. Members who meet their goals win cash from members who don’t!
With Achievement, you earn cash by completing tasks such as surveys, health programs, and challenges. You continue earning points by taking part in healthy activities like walking or biking, tracked by your other fitness apps.
Charity Miles is a bit different, as it allows you to pay it forward. You have the option to donate your “miles” to over 30 world-class charities. Just sign up, get moving, and start giving. The app takes care of the rest!
Higi is a one-stop shop when it comes to health and fitness apps. It offers health tracking, connectivity with multiple apps and devices, and community support. The rewards come into play when you join challenges!
But if you do want to splurge on something quick and tasty, ditch those chips and try a handy spoon tuna pouch instead that you can take with you on your workout or just eat on-the-go.
