Reach your workout goal and win money from your friends who didn't reach theirs! Fitsby is a fun way to stay motivated to hit the gym. Challenge your friends to a game of gym check-ins and win by reaching your gym goal. When the game ends, the gym goers who reached their goals will be rewarded money from their friends who didn't meet their gym goals. Read our FAQ at http://fitsby.com/faq.html to learn more.

✔ HOW IT WORKS:
1. Join a game and invite your friends to play.
2. Work out and check in at the gym (Fitsby uses your smartphone's GPS to verify that you are at a gym and also requires that you work out a minimum of 30 minutes before you can successfully check out).
3. When the game ends, the players who met their gym goals are rewarded money from those who didn't meet theirs.

✔ KIIP REWARDS:
Regardless of whether or not you win a game, you can earn awesome free rewards just for your workout! Examples are $1 Amazon.com MP3 credits, American Apparel discount coupons, and free glasses from Coastal.com. There's no extra effort on your part -- just keep using Fitsby to check in at your gym, and get rewarded for working out!
