Looking For Motivation To Work Out Theres An App For That

People looking for extra motivation to exercise may want to consider a new iphone app that puts their money on the line.  The app called "Gympact" charges users a small fee everytime they skip going to the gym.  To sign up, users enter their credit card information and the number of days they can commit to going to the gym.  The fee for skipping out on a gym trip can be anywhere from five to 50 dollars.  As an added bonus, the money collected from people who skip a day is pooled and then divided among users who stuck to their commitments.
