According to Men’s Health Magazine, people track their workouts using “social gaming,” where you earn prizes for working out. After 10 weeks, people who played the games exercised more often, AND lost more weight.

Check out these apps you can download for free on an iPhone or Android phone.

1. Nexercise. Rewards you for keeping track of your workouts. Every two minutes you spend exercising equals 10 points. You can redeem the points for gift cards.  Nexercise.com

2. GymPact. Actually charges you money if you don’t work out. But if you do, you WIN money. You decide how much to penalize yourself for each workout missed. Then you have to “check in” every time you exercise.  Gym-Pact.com

3. HealthRally. Lets your friends and family pledge money for rewards. You only receive “prizes” if you reach your goal. If you don’t, then none of their credit cards get charged.  HealthRally.com
