The theme of Zombie, Run! is to let you jog around while putting your headphones on and absorb yourself into an audio adventure of a hero going to save the world. Sounds exciting, doesn’t it? There’s a vocal guidance giving missions through interesting stories by award-winning novelist Naomi Alderman, which you can choose from the playlist. If you’re being chased by zombies, groan and guttural moan will be piped straight to your ear holes. To survive, there’s only thing you can do: Speed up!

The app does make the workout time a little bit more entertaining, but due to its lack of fitness features, it may not be strong enough to entice you to go out for a run every day. So the app is only recommended for those who have already formed a daily workout hobby.
If you needed more motivation for doing exercises, how about getting paid for working out? Quite fascinating, right?
Pact does give you the chance to earn money for staying active. All you have to do is making a pact to set your own fitness goals. Then, bet your money on your credit card or PayPal account and set your fine limits of $5 or $10, which is deducted for every time you fail to meet your goals. Once you’ve done your “pact”, you’ll earn real money from members who failed. A statistic showed that over 95% Pact’s members have ultimately hit their goals. Stick to it and you will be able to set your own daily hobby of living and eating healthily.
Carrot Fit has the strange yet hilarious idea to keep you stay fit every day. Unlike most fitness apps try to encourage you to work out, the hilarious talking A.I. character CARROT, which declaring itself “fitness overlord”, will give whatever you need to stay active, from tips, inspirations to ridicules, sarcasm, insults and judgments.
Put in your weight, let CARROT pass judgment upon it and then train you personally to hit your ideal weight. CARROT provides a “Seven-minute workout”, which all-new 24 different exercises with different pop-culture referred stories like Mt. Doom Climbs, Celebrity Face Punches, and Dragon Mating Dance etc. If you are able to cut some certain pounds, you will be rewarded with some prizes such as app upgrades. On the other hand, if you gain some weight, CARROT will be upset or get mad, which can make you cry!
Once you’re done with your workout, you can use CARROT’s Weight Tracker to see your progress.
Charity Miles has a humane idea of combining charity and working out. The app tracks every time you run, walk, or bicycle and makes donations on your behalf every mile you’ve completed.
You just have to choose charities from the list. Corporate sponsors will help you to donate a few cents to the one you support as soon as you’ve done certain amounts of exercising.
