Fitocracy is a fitness social network where you can track your workouts and keep consistent through gamification, with the help of a very supportive community.
Fitocracy’s mission is to make fitness a more fun and addictive experience.The idea behind it was conceived by two guys, Brian Wang and Richard Talens, who decided they want to get fit and thought: what if fitness could be turned into a game? Both understood through their gaming background how addictive it could be trying to get to that next level, beating your opponent, and completing that next quest. So they created a site that presents users with quests to perform for additional points, typically consisting of a set of related activities. The rewards you get for advancing on your fitness workouts (aside from becoming fitter… ;)) are leveling up, achievement badges and the appreciation of the community.
Fitocracy really is the fitness social network to level up in real life! Whether you’ve never exercised a day in your life or you’re an advanced athlete, it can take you to your next level of fitness. Fitocracy users log their exercise activity by selecting from a collection of activities such as weight lifting or running and entering details such as weight lifted or distance run. Though users start using Fitocracy for its gamification, the reason they stay is its very supportive community, which becomes the source of inspiration as opposed to getting encouragement from your own progress. Get addicted to fitness just like a video game, try this warm fitness community and get in the best shape ever.
