I'm losing motivation to workout regularly so decided to use this GymPact android app. Now I have to workout or lose $5 per day... Also I can earn around $2 per week if I reach goal... am curious if any one else already using it here for motivation.
Yeah.. I have been using it for a week and its working. I did not skip working out even for a day...
That's neat! I'm going to look at the diet part. I have no problems working out but my diet is horrible.
Cough *scam* cough
It relies on people to install and inevitably forget about it because of life and then they debt you! *cha-ching*
Yeah sounds great at first but that's how all scams work! Just get a piggy bank/jar or savings account and do the samething yourself...and see you'll inevitably forget but won't be making some other people rich and yourself poor! Plus avoid the potential of having your credit card details being sold on black market.
Motivate yourself and reward yourself don't rely on others. Be accountable to yourself and improve!
Yeah, make yourself an account at tue bank and log it...be truthful...and at the end of the week deposit or withdrawal the amount....or use a jar...lol
I've been trying self-motivation for an year without success. That's reason for depending on Third Party.
I checked various reviews about this app on internet before using it. Also, I don't think I will forget about it as it keeps remainding me that I will lose money if I don't record my workout on that day.
Why so much negativity on this app. If people are trying to make a positive change in their life who are we to judge. If this works for people, I applaud you for taking the first step.
As far as getting into credit card fraud. I'm not getting into that. It has nothing to do with fitness.
I am no longer following this thread since it is now counterproductive. Feel free to follow me if you want to talk about fitness.
You're welcome to use the app just trying to warn you against using it because I used to work for a company that had a similar service. All legal with friendly reminders that you're being billed.
But when I checked the user accounts I found 1000's of accounts being unused and being actively billed. Some dead clients some just in hospital, some lost their hardware, etc. It was easy to spot since you would see 3-4 months of activity then nothing. And this went on for years company making a few cool million turn-over. Because people didn't notice the small deductions. Hated working there as the soul purpose was to take advantage of people with normal lives.
That's why I'm trying to warn you and others against a service that automatically takes money from you because I've see tonnes of people suffer from it and the company has it in their T&C's that you've agreed to.
Also I suggested alternative way to motivate himself but still maintaining the principle. Just don't like the app!
I understand your concern. I will use it for few more days before making any decision...
