I noticed the points on profiles and was just curious what they are for?

You get the points for workouts depending on their intensity and length. But it has no real meaning, it is just a game and a means of competition.

They are just a way to motivate you. The more workouts you do using this app, the more points you get. You can go "yay, I have reached a thousand points", so you can pat yourself on the shoulder for being so persistent and brave.

It really doesn't work for me, I have way better ways to motivate myself (like the high I get from working out), but if it works for others, then that's great!
