Get rewarded for working out

We've already told you about programs that punish you for not exercising regularly http://www.purewow.com/entry_detail/national/1324/Make-a-monetary-commitment-to-exercising.htm , but if you're the type to respond better to positive reinforcement, we've got another motivational tool up our sleeve: Earndit http://earndit.com/ . This free new website syncs with a handful of popular fitness trackers to reward your good behavior, bestowing you with post-workout points you can redeem for things like gift cards and charitable donations. The way it works is simple: You link your Earndit account to your fitness tracker of choice (Nike+ http://earndit.com/service/nikeplus , Fitbit http://earndit.com/service/fitbit , MapMyFitness http://earndit.com/service/mapmyfitness and Garmin http://earndit.com/service/garmin , to name a few). Then, every time you use your tracker in tandem with your workout, Earndit automatically awards you points based on your activity, time and endurance: 10 points per mile run, 15 points per Foursquare gym check-in, and so on. Once you've accrued a slew of points, you can cash them in--credit-card style--for various prizes, including gift cards to H.Bloom (250 points for a $25 credit) and Bonobos (500 points for a $50 credit) or donations to worthy organizations such as Heifer International (500 points earns one goat for a needy family). After all, who doesn't like imagining the gift of livestock when completing that final bike loop?
