I’m thinking about restarting my GymPact membership – I turned it off the last week of my pregnancy but, since I’m hitting up the gym regularly again, it’s time to ‘pact again.  After all, when I was checking in with GymPact every week, I earned about $40 over a few months.  Sweeeeet.


As I wrote in my original review of the GymPact app:


GymPact is an incentive-based program to motivate you to go to the gym.  Each week, you pledge to hit the gym a certain number of days a week (one to seven) and you ‘stake’ a cash amount (starting at $5 for every workout you miss).   If you meet your goal, you get paid via PayPal by the other GymPacters who didn’t meet their goal.


Since I first wrote about GymPact, over 45,000 people have joined the program, and they’ve given out over $150,000 in rewards.  They’ve incentivized people to complete more than 300,000 workouts since January.


Some exciting updates:  GymPact has launched the beta version of the Android app.  The waiting list for the Android app is over 2,000 people long, but GymPact is giving away 10 early access spots to HTP readers.  GymPact really is a fun way to motivate yourself to exercise (and to earn money!).

And for the iPhone users – GymPact has now integrated with the app RunKeeper.  Pretty nifty!


If you’d like a chance to win a spot to do Android beta testing for the GymPact Android app, simply leave a comment describing your favorite gym workout.  I’ll randomly pick ten winners tomorrow.   My favorite gym workout?  Swimming laps, but of course.



  • Heather August 29, 2012, 7:03 am

    My favorite gym workout is a 6:00 a.m. Pilates class. Nothing like starting of the day with screaming abs!

  • Hildur August 29, 2012, 7:10 am

    Mine is a strength class with my favorite instructor. She makes the time fly and I’m sore the day after!

  • melissa l August 29, 2012, 7:16 am

    Awh I am on the waiting list! I would love to try the applaud my favorite class would have to be a tie between spinning and our new outdoor running club – 4 1/2 mile hill drills are always easier with friends!

    • melissa l August 29, 2012, 7:17 am

      ** try the app

  • Alli August 29, 2012, 7:24 am

    Weights! I love a good heavy lifting session!

  • Danielle @ A Sense of Balance August 29, 2012, 7:28 am

    My favorite is the a Thursday night combo class Cardio Medley/Sculpting with Abs. It’s 30 straight minutes of cardio then switches to strength moves. The instructor is the best and she dishes out a tough workout. Love it!

  • april August 29, 2012, 7:32 am

    i love me some good long mindless elliptical with no strategy except to watch teen mom while listening to nikki minaj and reading about what suri cruise is wearing. it’s actually proven to help you burn more calories when you combine those things. it’s a nice break from running with a goal!

    • Adrianna August 31, 2012, 9:31 pm

      you are exactly right…hence my following this practice.

  • Jess D August 29, 2012, 7:43 am

    I would love to have the app!! My favorite gym workout is definitely spin class!

  • greenbean August 29, 2012, 7:46 am


  • Kristen ECM August 29, 2012, 7:47 am

    I am pregnant, so I am an elliptical girl right now!

  • Anna D August 29, 2012, 7:50 am

    Swimming, or doing abs while watching the men play basketball. Yummmm

  • Amy August 29, 2012, 7:51 am

    My fav workout at the gym is called focusmaster. Check out the website at http://focusmaster.com/the-workout/. It is a boxing interval workout and I love it. I’m interested to try this app out after hearing you talk about it.

  • jaimie August 29, 2012, 7:55 am

    My favorite gym workout is lifting weights.

    As an aside, I had Gym-Pact at the first of the year and for five months I diligently went to the gym four or five times a week (I’m never that consistent). Unfortunately in June I got an Android and therefore no more Gym-Pact
    I have literally gone to the gym less than 10 times since:( I’m on the waiting list and have been since I got my phone but man do I need Gym-Pact back in my life!!

  • Emma August 29, 2012, 7:55 am

    My favourite workout is Monday after work Pump – the instructor is older than most and she plays awesome 80s music!


  • lindsay August 29, 2012, 8:11 am

    Cardio on the bike then weights circuit!

  • GDadHTP August 29, 2012, 8:13 am

    definitely swimming laps…with mt daughter.

  • Lydia @ Inhabit the Beauty August 29, 2012, 8:17 am

    I’d love to win this! I need to get my rear back into the gym for my favorite – group exercise classes!

  • Stacia August 29, 2012, 8:23 am

    My most recent favorite? C25k! You inspired me! I have always wanted to be a runner and now I am hopefully on my way 🙂

  • sarah s August 29, 2012, 8:29 am

    omg, thank you so much for informing your readers of this! when you mentioned it back in the spring, i was totally interested but bummed that i had an android. i’d forgotten about it since then, but phew, a 2000 person wait list? i’d LOVE to earn an early access spot!! my hip and knee are hurt right now so i’m having to get a little creative with my workouts to avoid bothering them. right now i usually do weight lifting routines and include some quick cardio bursts to keep my heart rate up!

  • Helen August 29, 2012, 8:31 am

    I’ve recently faced my fears and marched right on up to the weights section in my gym, straight through the meatheads and started lifting on my own, outside of bodypump. I am actually loving it!! I used to be rubbish at motivating myself in the gym but with a little bit of practice and perseverance (and a good playlist) I’m starting to kick my own ass.

  • Kate August 29, 2012, 8:31 am

    Awesome! My favorite gym workout is a circuit of TRX moves, jumping rope, and kettlebells.

  • Sally August 29, 2012, 8:31 am

    Intervals on the treadmill — everything else on the TM feels like it takes.for.ever.

  • Lauren August 29, 2012, 8:33 am

    My favorite gym workout is spin class – intense, fun, and sweaty!

  • nicole August 29, 2012, 8:42 am

    Boring, i know, but my favorite gym workout is a run/walk session on the treadmill. I take my ipod and listen to my favorite tunes, look and talk to no one for 45 min. My heaven.

  • Sarah August 29, 2012, 8:44 am

    My favorite gym workout is Body Pump!

  • Nikki Clowe August 29, 2012, 8:44 am

    Zumba!! Fun and a great workout!

  • Elaine August 29, 2012, 8:47 am

    My favorite gym workout is taking cardio dance classes. My second favorite is running outside for 20-30 minutes followed by a good weights routine.

  • Laura C. August 29, 2012, 8:50 am

    My favorite gym workout is Bodypump! I’m terrible about doing any sort of weightlifting/strength training on my own so that class is perfect for me! Second favorite workout would have to be PiYo class… also because I’m terrible about stretching on my own, lol. Both classes really help me with my running!

  • Dani August 29, 2012, 8:50 am

    I love doing HIIT workouts like Body rock or ZWOW at the gym!

  • Holly August 29, 2012, 8:52 am

    My favorite workout at the gym is definitely lifting! I always leave feeling strong and empowered! Plus, I can’t stand doing my cardio (running) at the gym, so it is pretty much my ONLY workout at the gym 😉

  • Melissa August 29, 2012, 8:52 am

    My favorite gym workout is also swimming laps!

  • Kaitlin @4loveofcarrots August 29, 2012, 8:53 am

    strength training and bootcamp style classes, or spinning!

  • Aimee M August 29, 2012, 8:54 am

    elliptical, elliptical, elliptical!

  • Stephanie @ Steph's Miles August 29, 2012, 8:54 am

    My favorite gym workout is my 5:45 am spin class at my gym with the best gym instructor ever. He truly motivates me to push the pedals faster and harder!

  • Faith @ For the Health of It August 29, 2012, 9:01 am

    I’m super psyched for this! My favorites are running and hot yoga. Life’s been kicking me pretty hard lately so I gave myself a break from working out to deal with all of the other stuff…but now it’s time to get it back into gear!

  • Leanne August 29, 2012, 9:02 am

    My favorite gym workout is a 30 min weight lifting circuit. I always leave feeling stronger.

  • Julianne August 29, 2012, 9:07 am

    I love weightlifting thanks to Crossfit. Yay for getting stronger!

  • Amy Q August 29, 2012, 9:08 am

    Doing my http://www.gppfitness.com weights workout!

  • TiffanyS August 29, 2012, 9:10 am

    I love my bootcamp workouts for the variety, and I love my spin for the music!

  • Leslie August 29, 2012, 9:13 am

    favorite gym work out? the cardio bootcamp class my gym offers is awesome– strength and cardio in 1 hour has never left me so sore!

  • Simone August 29, 2012, 9:13 am

    I love running because Its the only thing I can really push myself into getting better and better.

  • Karen @ Goofy Can Cook August 29, 2012, 9:14 am

    Walking! I could walk for miles and miles!

  • Hillary B August 29, 2012, 9:17 am

    My favorite gym workout is a bootcamp style class or sports conditioning class. I would much rather do crazy stuff like “jump in and out of these hula hoops,” “Grab this huge rope and shake it” or “run around with this dog sled on your back” than sit at a nautilus machine. It helps working out feel more like a game than a chore!

  • Sunny August 29, 2012, 9:18 am

    Thank you so much for telling me it was connected with Runkeeper that is awesome for me!

  • Lily August 29, 2012, 9:19 am

    My favorite workout is long-distance running!

  • Teri K August 29, 2012, 9:20 am

    My current favorite is spending time in the weight room and breaking up set with sprints on the treadmill!

  • Courtney August 29, 2012, 9:21 am

    My favorite workout is pretty simple. I like to ride the stationary bike because it’s easy to just zone out, and my workout is always done before I know it!

  • michelle August 29, 2012, 9:21 am

    I would love to Beta test the Android version of GymPact!

  • Jen August 29, 2012, 9:21 am

    I’m a rock climber, through and through. It’s strength, cardio, agility, coordination, and flexibilty. It’s setting new goals and working on project routes. It’s breaking through a crippling fear and taking that 15 foot lead fall. It’s amazingly social yet solitary. It’s my zen. It’s kinestetic poetry.

  • Krista August 29, 2012, 9:24 am

    I love boot camp classes!

  • Helen August 29, 2012, 9:25 am

    I love hitting the gym for strength training workouts. I need some motivation. I haven’t been consistent with the gym in two weeks and I’ve been eating lots of junk. Need to step it up!

  • Sarah August 29, 2012, 9:28 am

    Group fitness classes! I love being able to have someone else tell me what to do! Plus, it’s nice being able to make friends!

  • Darbi August 29, 2012, 9:36 am

    Hands down…spinning class!

  • Whit August 29, 2012, 9:36 am

    My favorite workout these days (at 17 weeks pregnant) is swimming laps! Pre-pregnancy is was gut busters on the basketball court! (which is suicide sprints with 10 crunches at every line! – masochistic, I know)

  • Alex @ Alex Tries it Out August 29, 2012, 9:38 am

    I love being able to mix it up at the gym…a little time on the treadmill, elliptical, and stair stepper. All well being able to watch some of my favorite shows, of course!

  • jackie August 29, 2012, 9:43 am

    I am so glad they’re making an android app! My favorite gym exercise is the stationary bike.

  • Annie August 29, 2012, 9:44 am


  • Kinley @ Better Off Barefoot August 29, 2012, 9:46 am

    My favorite gym exercise is any kind of interval/full body workout class. I love leaving all sweaty 🙂

  • Beks August 29, 2012, 9:48 am

    My gym is small and doesn’t have a lot, but what I’ve realized that I love is working on C25K on the treadmill. When I read on my Kindle and listen to good music (usually instrumental like “Hunger Games” or something, so it’s like I’m running away from something, lol), it makes the time FLY by!

  • Amary August 29, 2012, 9:48 am

    My favorite workout…well, I really like the elliptical but also really enjoy taking Zumba and Yoga Classes. I have exercise ADD so I keep myself on my toes by switching it up!

  • Karen @ Run Shop Travel August 29, 2012, 9:53 am

    I’ve been wanting to join gympact for awhile now and have been SO FRUSTRATED their android app is taking so long so this is a great giveaway! I am already on the beta list and haven’t had any luck 🙂

    My favorite gym workout is spin class. I have been cycling outdoors a lot this summer but I know when winter rolls around I will be back in the saddle inside!

  • Sarah Anne August 29, 2012, 9:55 am

    I would loooove to win this! A little love for Android too!

    My favourite gym workout honestly, besides a good treadmill run is any type of aerobic class. They are fun and keep me really motivated!

  • Katie August 29, 2012, 9:59 am

    I like doing 10 minutes per cardio machine, I never get bored!

  • Cait MP August 29, 2012, 9:59 am

    My favorite gym workout is the stairclimber/treadmill paired with weights or a yoga class.


  • Jennifer August 29, 2012, 10:00 am

    I would love this app! My favorite is the ellipitcal.

  • Nynke August 29, 2012, 10:03 am

    My favourite workout is a combination of running and weights. 10 minutes on the treadmill, followed by a round through the weight-room, followed by a 20 minute challenge on the treadmill.

  • Carolyn C. August 29, 2012, 10:08 am

    I like a combination of the rowing machine, weights, and treadmill. I love to change it up, though, to keep it interesting!

  • Nina August 29, 2012, 10:11 am

    My favorite workout are bootcamp classes at my gym. HIIT classes kick my butt!

  • Nikki T August 29, 2012, 10:12 am

    Oooo, this would help with the after-birth motivation to get back into shape!!
    I love Kettlebells, but I’d also really like to get back into swimming…it’s been a long time!

  • Hallie August 29, 2012, 10:21 am

    Lately, I’m into Vinyasa yoga and Pilates reformer classes! But I change my “favorite” all the time.

  • maija August 29, 2012, 10:27 am

    i think the gym is boring… but going into winter i need the motivation to get there and do what i need to do.

  • Nikki August 29, 2012, 10:28 am

    A mix of treadmill and elliptical followed by a short strength training session.

  • Ailed August 29, 2012, 10:28 am

    So happy they finally have the andriod gympact beta in the works 🙂

  • Rachel S August 29, 2012, 10:30 am

    My favorite gym workout is spinning. I love the blasting music in a dark room lit only by twinkly lights! It really allows me to zone out and focus on improving my speed, body, and health!

  • Kelsey August 29, 2012, 10:32 am

    I’m so excited for the android version of this to come out!! I love running, so my favorite thing to do at the gym is watch some trashy reality show while logging a few miles on the treadmill! I also love body pump!

  • Cassie August 29, 2012, 10:36 am

    My zumba class! It’s a great cardio workout and an awesome community of zumba lovers! Doesn’t hurt my dance moves either 🙂

  • Erin August 29, 2012, 10:36 am

    I love taking various classes at my gym. It’s nice to have some variety/keeps me from getting bored.

  • KaraHadley August 29, 2012, 10:41 am

    Ooooh, pick me! I tried to get GymPact a few months ago before I realized it was only for iPhone. I would LOVE to try GymPact because my favorite workout is Crossfit, which is EXPENSIVE. It works out to about $6.50 a class for me, so I would loveloveLOVE to recoup some of that through GymPact.

  • Ashley Y August 29, 2012, 10:43 am

    I go through phases with my favorite gym workout. It ranges from yoga to spinning to body pump. Currently, I think it is body pump.

  • Kati August 29, 2012, 10:44 am

    I would love that app – I go to the gym every lunch like clock work, so I think it could pay off for me! My favorite workout is turbokick – so fun!

  • Maria August 29, 2012, 10:45 am

    My favorite gym workout is a lifting circuits – gaining muscle AND fitting in cardio at once. Can’t go wrong with that!

  • Lauren Salak August 29, 2012, 10:47 am

    lately i’ve really been enjoying lifting weights! lots of bicep curls for this girl 🙂

  • Kimberly @ Redefining Kimberly August 29, 2012, 10:49 am

    My favorite workout at the gym is a 20 min HIIT workout on the treadmill followed up weight lifiting with my hubby!

  • Emily August 29, 2012, 10:52 am

    I love lifting weights at the gym and getting stronger!

  • shan August 29, 2012, 10:53 am

    my favorite workout is running on the treadmill! i know some people hate the treadmill, but i love being able to catch up on my favorite shows.

  • Nancy Kupihea August 29, 2012, 10:55 am

    Love to weight train at the gym!

    So excited for the app to be available on androids!!

  • Bronwyn August 29, 2012, 10:57 am

    I’ve loved Crossfit lately. Sadly I just recently moved and will have to figure out a new workout routine! It’s kind of exciting…. But it’d be great to have some extra motivation here in the small rural town I’ve moved to.

  • Aerevyn Harteis August 29, 2012, 11:00 am

    Favorite workout?

    20 minutes of chuffing along on the elliptical, speeding up until I feel queasy and before I see spots. Blows away the cobwebs and keeps my personal boogeyman – depression – tamed down. Then 5 minutes of cool down to feel like a human being again and regain my legs.

    Been lurking on this blog for a while. First time posting! Whoot!

  • kristin s. August 29, 2012, 11:14 am

    I recently got into swimming and loved it but have fallen off the wagon and know this would help keep me motivated to continue it. I also love swimming and trx!

  • Annie P. August 29, 2012, 11:16 am

    Yoga and Body Pump classes

  • HealthKickChick August 29, 2012, 11:17 am

    I love Zumba, corny as that sounds. I go to the gym early so having someone else dictate my moves is necessary.

  • Coree August 29, 2012, 11:25 am

    I love strength training! I despise cardio, but I need to be better about working it into my routine.

  • Megan August 29, 2012, 11:25 am

    It’s hard to pick a favorite but currently it’s a strength training session with my husband. I’m also a fan of an early, early morning swim followed by a spin class.

  • Jessica August 29, 2012, 11:35 am

    My favorite gym workout is Team Bootcamp at my local Gym. My trainer kicks my butt every time and I always leave feeling like I got a great workout in! You know, the kind where you could ring out your shirt from sweat??? that kind!! 🙂

  • samantha August 29, 2012, 11:37 am

    I would love to win this! I just had a baby August 15th and would love to start tracking my walks and transition to tracking my gym workouts when I can get back to them!

  • Heather August 29, 2012, 11:40 am

    I love body pump 🙂

  • April August 29, 2012, 11:41 am

    I really like to switch it up at the gym, but right now I am loving rowing then getting on the stationary bike. Oooh and I LOVE Water Tabata. I love seeing the benies from a full body work out.

  • Sara August 29, 2012, 11:41 am

    Mine is Body Pump. I love interval strength training, and the energy in the class is electric!

  • Allison T August 29, 2012, 11:41 am

    I LOVE spin class with my favorite instructor. People sometimes have to wait 45 minutes just to sign up for the class on the day of. It’s totally worth the wait though!

  • Miriam August 29, 2012, 11:43 am

    I try to mix between cardio and weights but iam still a cardio girl… i like the elliptical.

  • Liz August 29, 2012, 11:45 am

    Weights, weights and more weights. I love lifting. But, there are also those days I love hitting up the different cardio machines too!

  • Heather August 29, 2012, 11:46 am

    Oooo…I need this! My favorite gym workout has been Zumba lately, but in Sept I’m committing to a new weight lifting regimen. This would be a great tool to make sure I don’t flake!

  • Kayla August 29, 2012, 11:47 am

    My favorite gym workout is a group fitness class, mostly Zumba!

  • Tamicka August 29, 2012, 11:51 am

    Its simple and effective I love walking

  • Caroline August 29, 2012, 11:54 am

    My favorite gym workout is currently hitting the weights!

  • Margo August 29, 2012, 12:03 pm

    I’ve been waiting for the Android app since I first read your review! Right now I’d have to say my favorite gym workout is Body Pump. Such a great way to get in weight training.

  • Gia August 29, 2012, 12:04 pm

    At 29 weeks pregnant, I’m sticking with walking for now :), but I’m excited to get back to the gym after baby girl is here and do lots of elliptical and weight training!

  • Christine August 29, 2012, 12:12 pm

    My favorite workout is a zombie zone-out on the elliptical with a good audiobook. It seems mindless but I like to just set a program on the machine, start up a chapter, and not worry about the time, calories, intensity, etc. Before I know it, my workout is over!

  • cristin August 29, 2012, 12:14 pm

    Swimming laps!

  • Courtney Leigh August 29, 2012, 12:14 pm

    I’m swimming laps myself these days, but I’m also planning to start some weight lifting soon!

  • Kim August 29, 2012, 12:15 pm

    Does anyone know if you can use this app without a Facebook account?

  • Jennifer Cook August 29, 2012, 12:15 pm

    I really love swimming although it’s hard to jump in the cold water sometimes! But once I am in, I really enjoy it.

  • Jessi August 29, 2012, 12:16 pm

    My favorite is spinning!! I was so nervous to start, because I’m pretty out of shape and overweight, but it was SO motivating and fun! I love pedaling up those invisible hills with the music pumping.. I even invested in clip-in shoes 🙂

  • meghan August 29, 2012, 12:22 pm

    my favorite gym workout is so boring (to most people). I just love the treadmill! There are so many different workouts you can do on it, AND it makes me sweat more than anything else.

  • Janna August 29, 2012, 12:25 pm

    I am going to have to say spinning 🙂 Thanks for hosting this…

  • ann August 29, 2012, 12:27 pm

    I am really looking forward to this app. I am a new mom, so any exercise I can squeee in inbetween the 2 kids and work is my favorite. But with the heat my favorite is pushing the double stroller around the track with lunges and squats after every quarter mile, they make my daughter giggle and I get a little break to keep me motivated.

  • Jenny D August 29, 2012, 12:33 pm

    I love Latin Hip Hop! Dancing is definitely the most fun way to work out!

  • Jordan August 29, 2012, 12:37 pm

    My favorite gym workout is a nice long run on the treadmill where i can zone out and destress 🙂

  • Emily August 29, 2012, 12:37 pm

    This summer, my favorite gym workouts have been hands down swimming laps and spin class. I got into both back in May when I started training for my first sprint Tri. Even a month after the race, I am still hitting the pool and spin bike regularly!

  • Michelle August 29, 2012, 12:37 pm

    Thanks for the update! I don’t have a droid, but now that it has runkeeper integrated, I’m joining!!

  • Meredith August 29, 2012, 12:39 pm

    Intervals on the treadmill. Not only is it a great workout, it helps to beat boredom!

  • Stacie August 29, 2012, 12:40 pm

    My favorite gym exercise is definitely a good spin class! Turn off the lights, turn up the music and I almost feel like I’m at a party instead of a gym…almost.

  • Paj August 29, 2012, 12:42 pm

    I prefer to mix things up to avoid boredom. Arc trainer, elliptical and weights are some of my go-to workouts though.

  • Lauren August 29, 2012, 12:47 pm

    My favorite workout is barre-based classes – Bar Method, Daily Method, etc.!

  • Leah August 29, 2012, 12:48 pm

    My favorite gym workout is doing elliptical intervals with weights in between! Talk about a calorie burner whew!

  • Eliana August 29, 2012, 12:49 pm

  • Jud August 29, 2012, 12:51 pm

    My favorite workout is lifting!

  • Kate Murray August 29, 2012, 12:51 pm

    My favourite gym workout is twenty minutes of the elliptical, the bike and the treadmill and then forty laps of the pool after to cool myself down!

  • Alex @ Healthy Life Happy Wife August 29, 2012, 12:59 pm

    My favorite gym workout is spinning or the stairs! I figure I can run outside to I take advantage of other forms of cardio at the gym!

  • Pooja August 29, 2012, 1:01 pm

    Jump rope and lifting weights

  • Sarah August 29, 2012, 1:06 pm

    I’ve been wanting to try this since you first mentioned it on your site! My current favorite workout is lifting weights.

  • Megan August 29, 2012, 1:08 pm

    Yay for an android app!! At the gym, I like to use the elliptical and the track. The treadmill is SO boring to me, but our running track looks over the gym area, so at least you have something to watch and occupy your time.

  • Maria August 29, 2012, 1:10 pm

    I love any kind of aerobics!!!

  • Stephanie August 29, 2012, 1:11 pm

    My favorite gym workout is a swim in the morning to start out my day!

  • Liz August 29, 2012, 1:13 pm

    My favorite gym workout is CrossFit!

  • cynthiasolc August 29, 2012, 1:19 pm

    This would be so cool, i just joined back to my gym after the pool was closed for two years!

  • Annette@FitnessPerks August 29, 2012, 1:33 pm

    Favorite gym workout–teaching BodyPUMP or teaching Zumba!

  • Alice August 29, 2012, 1:50 pm

    I have been waiting for the android app ever since I first heard of Gym Pact MONTHS ago!! Please, please let it be me for once! My favorite workout is swimming–it’s almost all I do at the gym. Backstroke for 30 minutes. 45 if I’m feeling like a rockstar. 🙂

  • Dana August 29, 2012, 2:04 pm

    My favorite gym workout is a tough interval training workout in preparation of an upcoming race. Way to go on using intervals during your tri-training; you’re such an inspiration getting back into racing so soon after giving birth! I only hope i can do the same!

  • Carly August 29, 2012, 2:07 pm

    I am currently into spinning!

  • Katie August 29, 2012, 2:09 pm

    My favorite workout is the Bodypump class at 24 Hour Fitness! It’s AMAZING!!

  • Stephanie @ Legally Blinde August 29, 2012, 2:23 pm

    My favorite gym workouts are group exercise classes – I love strength training classes, TurboKick, Zumba, spinning, yoga… the list goes on! Thanks for this awesome giveaway – that’s such a great idea for motivation!! And I could use some extra motivation right about now as school is starting and it’s easy to come up with excuses not to go to the gym.

  • Melissa August 29, 2012, 2:24 pm

    I like taking classes at the gym (yoga, Zumba, etc) or hitting the treadmill when the weather isn’t conducive to running outside.

  • Bonnie August 29, 2012, 2:25 pm

    I like to do some lifting and then finish up with a stationary bike ride, usually 8-10 miles. At least, it’s my favorite these days! 🙂

  • Kelly August 29, 2012, 2:31 pm

    Per Kath’s frequent recommendation, I started going to Body Pump and LOVE IT!

  • Megan August 29, 2012, 2:37 pm

    My favorite gym workout is a crossfit-sque one I found on Blonde Ponytail’s blog. Run 1/2 mile, then 50 squats, 20 push ups, 30 sit ups. Repeat 4 times. (She repeats 6 times). I only go to the gym after work, at 6:15am, and I’ve been up for 16-24 hours by the time so I make it a little shorter. And then 15 minutes or so of weightlifting.

  • Lilia August 29, 2012, 2:37 pm

    I love spinning and step aerobics!

  • Mikella August 29, 2012, 2:39 pm

    My favorite gym workout is also swimming laps, but sometimes I don’t want the hassle of changing and getting all wet, so in those cases I like doing a circuit around the track with various exercises mixed in with running.

  • jess August 29, 2012, 2:43 pm

    i love to do interval training on the treadmill

  • Stephanie August 29, 2012, 2:50 pm

  • craig August 29, 2012, 2:53 pm

    My favorite gym workout is power lifting

  • Karla August 29, 2012, 2:53 pm

    I try to maximize my time with an old-school StairMaster workout 🙂

  • Andrea August 29, 2012, 2:55 pm

    My favorite gym workout is doing a 20-minute AMRAP… Starting with jump rope (double unders of course), box jumps, wall squats, hand-release push ups, forward stepping lunges with a press… I’ll usually mix it up each time, but these are some of my fav exercises.
    That or hopping in the pool or on the bike to get a workout outside 🙂

  • Alex Arzave August 29, 2012, 2:56 pm

    My favorite gym workout is body pump – it’s a class offered at my gym that does hits every muscle in the body within an hour and half…really would love love love love love to be a gym-pact member already as I have been on the waiting list forever “crosses fingers”

  • Dan Esposito August 29, 2012, 3:00 pm

    My favorite workout is a sprint workout on the treadmill. 15 minutes. Five 1 minute sprints on 8 or 10. Jog and walk in between.

  • Catherine August 29, 2012, 3:01 pm

    Because I am currently recovering from major ITBS my favorite gym workout is with my traininer/PT.

  • khathy August 29, 2012, 3:02 pm

    My favorite at the gym is a combination of conditioning and cardio on the ellipticals!

  • Stephanie August 29, 2012, 3:10 pm

    My favorite changes all the time (great for keeping up variety, right?). Right now I’m loving my Monday night Zumba class!

  • Valerie August 29, 2012, 3:12 pm

    Spin class!

  • Christine B August 29, 2012, 3:13 pm

    My favorite workout is my twice weekly pole fitness class. I just started Barre classes and I’m liking those too. I can’t want for this to come out for Android.

  • Cherie August 29, 2012, 3:14 pm

    My favorite workout is a combination of all out cardio on the treadmill mixed with strength training! Fantastic!

  • shaunie August 29, 2012, 3:15 pm

    My favorite gym workout is using the treadmill ( I like to get my legs in shape)

  • denise August 29, 2012, 3:18 pm

    I’m currently loving Smyrna MMA School’s “Combat Cardio”. It’s an intense workout mixing MMA moves with high intensity cardio. Well worth the time.

  • Kristy Doyle August 29, 2012, 3:25 pm

    My favorite gym workout is my boot camp class! It always kicks my butt.

  • Melody August 29, 2012, 3:37 pm

    My favorite gym workout is kickboxing! I get to feel fit and badass (and only a little ridiculous) all at once.

  • Sam @ The Second Lunch August 29, 2012, 3:40 pm

    It used to be elliptical elliptical elliptical, now it’s all about the weights! Heavy ones! I can lift them!! And, it’s about challenging myself to go further, stronger, with a smile on my face.

  • Laura Freeman August 29, 2012, 3:52 pm

    My favorite gym workout is at cross fit. Pushing tires, jumping on boxes, hitting tires with sledge hammers. That is my kind of work out!!

  • Ella August 29, 2012, 3:53 pm

    I like running with my puppy – he’s not so small anymore, I can hardly keep up!

  • kirsten August 29, 2012, 4:01 pm

    Oooh I’ve been waiting for gympact to come out for android! My favorite workout is intervals on the treadmill.

  • Jason Vance August 29, 2012, 4:02 pm

    I personally love running and I’m super excited about the RunKeeper integration! But in between running days I enjoy the 30 minute circuit at Planet Fitness, because it is well rounded and still involves a lot of cardio.

  • craig August 29, 2012, 4:05 pm

    high volume weight lifting

  • erica August 29, 2012, 4:07 pm

    weights! i love weight training so much more than cardio

  • Lauren August 29, 2012, 4:11 pm

    Lately I’ve taken a few hot yoga classes and really enjoyed them.

  • Gretchen August 29, 2012, 4:17 pm

    Boot camp!

  • Rebecca August 29, 2012, 4:21 pm

    I have been all about spinning classes lately!

  • Tejal August 29, 2012, 4:29 pm

    Which do I pick? Hahaha, I do have a recent favorite workout. In 2012, I have been following this homegrown weights and resistance training routine that my good friend/personal trainer wrote for me. I work out on my own and on my own schedule, which holds me to training. A few other things I love about these workouts: I started to lose my fear of lifting weights or that scary section of the gym, I don’t get bored since there are three different routines a week, and I started to see results! It’s so important for me, especially as a woman approaching her 30’s (quickly, might I add), to perform resistance training. As for the results part, I can see it and I’ve finally hit a long standing goal: I can do a pull-up. Might not be much for some people but that’s a really big deal for me.

    Happy Training!

  • Christina August 29, 2012, 4:31 pm

    My favorite workout is very 1980’s, I love me some step class. I’m not sure why really, maybe it’s the music or the fact that that if I push I can really sweat (I think of it as a sign of accomplishment).

  • Lindsey August 29, 2012, 4:35 pm

    My favorite gym workout is when I do a little of each of my favorite cardio machines! I like to jump from the elliptical to the bike to the treadmill to keep things interesting. 🙂

  • cristina August 29, 2012, 4:40 pm

    What an exciting giveaway. Gympact is just the kick in the butt I need to get me back to the gym and into my most fav. workout which is step class!!!

  • Harry Naidu August 29, 2012, 4:58 pm

    Bootcamp by far. Great combination of cardio, resistance and stretching.

  • K @ Finding a skinnier me August 29, 2012, 5:27 pm

    I love swimming and zumba, those are for sure my favorite gym workouts!

    That app looks like so much fun!!!

  • Cat August 29, 2012, 5:27 pm

    Fav bust a move is a Les Mills Pump workout!!!

  • bobbileigh August 29, 2012, 5:37 pm

    I am currently rehabbing a multi-ligament repair in my knee, so my favorite exercise is biking and lots of leg strengthen exercises to build my knee back up. Once my knee is all good to go I cant wait to get back on an elliptical.

  • Rachel August 29, 2012, 5:41 pm

    My favorite gym workout is the stepmill! And it seems like I’m the only one… it is the only machine that never has a line during the busy hours 🙂

  • jennifer August 29, 2012, 6:17 pm

    My favorite gym workout is a bit of running, a bit of weights, and some elliptical!

  • beth August 29, 2012, 6:25 pm

    I’ve been wanting this app forever! I crossfit, so of course thats my favorite.

  • stacey August 29, 2012, 7:02 pm

    Lifting weights for sure! I’m currently 22 weeks pregnant so I’m not pushing as hard as I was and have to modify a bit, but it’s still the one thing that makes my body feel “normal”.

  • Aubrey August 29, 2012, 7:24 pm

    I love Barre workouts! They make me feel strong and beautiful. Plus…it kicks my butt!

  • Michele August 29, 2012, 7:24 pm

    My favorite workout is Zumba!

  • Carol August 29, 2012, 7:40 pm

    My favorite gym workout is free weights and interval training. Sure, you could do that at home… but you miss out on the accountability of the people who know you are supposed to be there and are watching to make sure you are hitting hard and not just going through the motions!!!!

  • Danielle August 29, 2012, 7:42 pm

    I love running on the treadmill.. Sometimes boring bit I still can’t get enough

  • Fernando August 29, 2012, 7:59 pm

    My favorite workout is long-distance running!
    I love it

  • Emily @ Relishments August 29, 2012, 8:09 pm

    I just re-joined my gym after quitting for a couple months. In the meantime I started practicing yoga again, but I’m looking forward to using weights at the gym again!

  • Brittany August 29, 2012, 8:21 pm

    The elliptical is my favorite!

  • Nicole August 29, 2012, 8:25 pm

    Love an early morning run and the safety of the treadmill works for me some days!

  • Rebecca August 29, 2012, 8:30 pm

    Favorite workout is the Group Power class at my gym!

  • Karen August 29, 2012, 9:04 pm

    Love doing Zumba! And GymPact is such a cool idea, I would love to try it!

  • Amy August 29, 2012, 9:07 pm

    I LOVE kickboxing! I’m so glad I have a chance to take it once or twice a week at my new gym.

  • Nina August 29, 2012, 9:24 pm

    Pre-injury I *loved* zoning out on the treadmill for a few miles. Now my favorite is a long strength training session.

  • Alexandra August 29, 2012, 9:27 pm

    Favourite gym workout: boot camp class!

  • Carin August 29, 2012, 9:31 pm

  • Lori Z August 29, 2012, 9:39 pm

    Lifting weights!

  • Erin August 29, 2012, 9:56 pm

    I love using the rowing machines!!! It kicks my butt every time.

  • amy August 29, 2012, 10:45 pm

    boxing is my obsession at the moment! just can’t get enough of it…something that makes you sweat so much and feel so badass at the same time…it’s true love.

  • McLean August 29, 2012, 11:16 pm

    My go to gym workout is running, but I have recently started doing Pilates and I’m in love! The mental and physical aspect is I think why I enjoy it so much; plus my core is getting tighter, and who doesn’t want that 🙂

  • Shiloh D August 29, 2012, 11:31 pm

    Treadmill sprints!

  • Alicia August 30, 2012, 12:04 am

    I’ve never been a part of a gym that had classes but I like doing the circuit training stations. Forces me to do strength training! But since it’s a bit of a drive for me I think this gympact app would really motivate me to go workout more!

  • Sarah August 30, 2012, 12:31 am

    I love doing water aerobics. Sometimes you have to start where you can, and this is where I begin (but after a month or so, it gets too easy…I’ll be back with a new fave soon!)

  • John Cooper August 30, 2012, 2:31 am

    My favourite workout is to run to the park, do a lap, then run back. Fresh air, the sights and sounds of the wildlife, and it’s totally free.

  • Kelsie August 30, 2012, 4:43 am

    My favorite gym workout is to walk/jog to the gym then do a weight/strengthening circuit followed by at least a half hour on the elliptical!

  • Jen August 30, 2012, 7:54 am

    Any type of class, its the only thing to keep me motivated lately!

  • Sarah August 30, 2012, 9:42 am

    I love the circuits from Jillian Michaels’ 30 day shred, but I hate doing them WITH the video.. I’d much rather do them in the gym.. ??? I don’t know why!
    I am on the waiting list for the app!

  • Rebecca August 30, 2012, 9:42 am

    I like doing intervals on the elliptical or treadmill

  • Jennie August 30, 2012, 9:45 am

    the elliptical or the treadmill, i really need to get better at doing my strength training circuits

  • Alyssa @ Don't Look Down August 30, 2012, 10:02 am

    I went to spin class last night for the first time in a while and I realized how much I have missed it! I also love swimming and strength training. And sometimes it’s nice to mindlessly elliptical away and get in some tv time.

  • Sarah August 30, 2012, 10:35 am

    My fav gym workout is to run 400 meters then do a set of weights and repeat until I’ve finished all my reps

  • jennifer August 30, 2012, 11:52 am

    I love running and zumba!

  • Molly August 30, 2012, 12:03 pm

    I love a good early-morning spin class!

  • Dory August 30, 2012, 1:22 pm

    A hot, hot, hot yoga practice or a nice 3 mile run 🙂

  • Carrie August 30, 2012, 4:12 pm

    My favorite gym work out is intervals on the elliptical/cross trainer. It makes me push myself and I always feel good/tired afterwards.

  • Meg @ My Chocolate Covered Life August 30, 2012, 10:20 pm

    I would LOVE to win this!!

  • Keri August 30, 2012, 10:23 pm

    I would be SO happy to win this! I had signed up for their alert about the Android app a while back but never got anything, so this would be awesome!

  • Sarah Jessica Farber August 30, 2012, 11:26 pm

    Swimming laps!
    Tied with dance class
    Tied with spin class
    tied with yoga class
    tied with kickboxing

  • Meagan August 31, 2012, 1:03 am

    Crossfit is my gym activity of choice. It’s contributed to not only my physical health, but my emotional health as well!

  • Holly Miller August 31, 2012, 8:37 am

    My favorite workout is ALWAYS running. But I do like to lift weights as well. My fav exercise is a walking lunge!

  • Mark Sewell August 31, 2012, 12:53 pm

    I really need this! I went from a very active job (delivering mail) to supervisor, and the lack of exercise is getting to me. With my busy schedule, though, I definitely need some motivation!

  • debbe September 5, 2012, 5:19 pm

    i love spin class!! pick me! pick me!! 🙂

  • Carolina September 6, 2012, 6:34 am

    Love ZUMBA

  • Chris Hess September 7, 2012, 2:10 pm

    A little late but I just learned about this through runkeeper….still trying to figure out how to get on the waiting list.

  • Kari September 10, 2012, 8:45 am

    I would love to use Gym Pact and can’t wait until the app is ready for us Android users!

  • Kim @ HealthyNest September 11, 2012, 9:39 am

    Tie between a treadmill run or BodyPump class!

  • Denise October 8, 2012, 10:02 am

    Love tri training! Swimming interval sets are my fav, however.

  • Becky Clark November 7, 2012, 9:52 pm

    Have you heard anything new on the Android version of GymPact? I’m in desperate need of some accountability and this would be great. Any idea when the regular version is going to be released?

    • Caitlin November 7, 2012, 10:18 pm

      I think it has been!

  • clydia November 11, 2012, 12:41 am

    I would have to say my favorite workout is water
    zumba while listening to “You and I” by Lady Gaga.
