The Fitness Games: A Review

This post was sponsored by The Fitness Games through my partnership with Fit Approach as a Sweat Pink Ambassador. I was not compensated monetarily, but was provided the Platinum Version of the application for review. As always, all opinions are my own.

Through my #sweatpink ambassadorship, I was given the opportunity to review the Fitness Games, an app available for iPhone, and recently it was made available to android users as well.

The app itself is pretty straightforward and simple, it has some built in workouts, cardio, strength, crosstraining (which is a lot of body weight workouts, and what I have enjoyed the most!) and full body.
The above pic is the home screen of the app, and you can select the workout you want to do, add a selfie (sweat is highly encouraged), start a challenge (more on that in a minute), and the workout tracker is a calendar where you can see what days you worked out on!

As I mentioned, I have been enjoying the crosstraining workouts, since marathon training has been my big goal, but trying to stay strong and even continue to strengthen those muscles that I need for running, and keep on top of my September goal of doing 4 strength workouts. I decided to try one of them.
The above is a screenshot from the "Bodyweight Madness" workout, which was the workout I decided to try first. As you can see, there is a timer, and you have a list of the moves that you are supposed to do, along with the reps. You track the time that it takes you to do all of these moves, and that is what can generate your score (after all, the are the Fitness Games, right? You need to earn points!)
In addition, you can find your friends who are on the app and challenge them!

Overall, it is a pretty neat app, and is a great way to get in short bursts of fitness with no equipment necessary, or more involved workouts that require weights or treadmills! Let me know if you check it out.
