Sup Travellers?! Most Gym memberships are never fully utilized mainly because of the fact that a lot of people get lazy and skip training days. There are a few exceptions but most pay a monthly fee and only actually attend for no more than a week. It's a sad reality. But a new website and IOS app called FitMob rewards you financially every time you workout. 

The service was launched on Thursday and it puts the gym in......GYM. Fitmob operates in favor of outdoor classes and indoor spaces rented by the hour instead of a specific gym location. Here's how it works: the first time you work out with Fitmob in a given week, you pay $15. Workout a second time and your cost for both classes is reduced to $10; go to three classes and you're paying $5 each. In other words, three sessions will cost you the same as one so you have a financial incentive to keep coming back.


"We want to put the economics of fitness back in the hands of the people," Raj Kapoor, Fitmob CEO, told Mashable. Some of the classes have titles like "Weapons of Ass Reduction" and "Twerkout Conditioning". Kapoor himself has taken the twerking class, and became a convert. "By the end, I found it quite enjoyable," he says. "I don't think I could ever do it on stage, though." You can more get more details here.

Personally, I don't think that the financial incentive to train will help very much. If i'm not feeling to go to the gym i'm not going to consider the financial losses of not going. But that's just me. It's a good idea and it will definitely save you some money. But I know a lot of people who would skip days at the gym even if the membership was free. I don't think that cheaper membership is in anyway an incentive to workout. Just saying. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
