...is a site I've been using lately. It is more of a game than a fitness site, where doing activities makes you level up and opens new quests. The quests aren't too intense, at least at my level. Some of the starting ones were to spend 15 minutes outside, or twenty crunches. As you do each type of quest, harder ones open up, like when I went for a two mile run, I completed the 'run a mile' quest and opened the 5k one. Doing a 5k opened 10k.
I like the little challenges, as it encourages you to try different things, to earn points so you can level up. A lot of the quests nudge you towards using free weights, which I think is good, especially for women. Free weights work your stabilizing muscles in a way that machines don't, and that's a good thing.
Anyway, I'm enjoying it. I'm currently in a group challenge, to earn the most points in a week, so we shall see how it goes. Some of the people in my group are really hard core gym rats, so I know I won't come out on top, but it'll be fun to see how I can do.
I have some invites, so if you feel like having a go, let me know!
