Hey iOS 5 users, we’re working on a fix to allow you to enter your password during email login. Sorry about the inconvenience!
In the meanwhile, here are a few ways to fix this:
1. Log in via FB. If you have a FB account with the same email as your GymPact account, you will be able to log in even if you didn’t sign up with FB.
2. Upgrade to iOS 6. (sorry, we know Maps suck)
3. Email us at email@example.com and we’ll No Charge you this week, and you can wait for our updated app.
As you may remember, Greg made a decision about 6 months ago to focus on fitness as he awaited the birth of his first grandchild. He started simple – handwriting physical activity and nutrition information in a homemade journal posted to his FitGrandpa BlogSpot. More recently, he’s made the transition to digital using a mix of MyFitnessPal to track nutrition, FitBit for activity throughout the day and of course GymPact with RunKeeper integration to track exercise and earn rewards.
This Thanksgiving, FitGrandpa had a lot to be thankful for as he welcomed the birth of his first granddaughter. So far, he’s lost 52 pounds and he’s ready to attack the next six months. Why not attack those next six months together.
Here are five great ways to join FitGrandpa on his journey over the next 6 months:
Meet Jeff. He has completed 200+ workouts using GymPact - talk about impressive!
At work, I’m Senior Manager of Digital Media for a technology company, directing a team of shooters, content creators, web developers and other creative types. After hours, I’m a photographer, filmmaker, voice-over artist, and personal tech and media consultant for family and friends. I also devote a lot of time to KZAM.net (www.kzam.net), the eclectic online music channel I started 10 years ago.I was pretty committed to my workouts before GymPact, but I would often let business travel or holidays or an otherwise busy schedule cut into my consistency. I was looking for a way to turn up the volume on my fitness and performance, knowing full well that consistency was the key. I use a lot of apps and when I read about GymPact it sounded like something to try.
After three or four weeks, I found the “game” kind of fun. I don’t have a PT or coach, but GymPact was there everyday to remind me to work out. No excuses. I guess I’m just competitive enough to not let some little S/W program in my phone beat me. Now more than 200 workouts later, it’s become a very important part of my daily life. The Runkeeper integration has been a brilliant upgrade. Now, there really are no excuses. I recently upped my pact to 5 days, and I often do 6.
When it comes to staying healthy and fit, something is always better than nothing. That’s the beauty and simplicity of the tag line “just do it.” Gympact really brought that home to me. If you can’t run, walk. If you can’t get to the gym, get outside. It’s so simple that it’s easy to forget. GymPact keeps it top of mind for me.
I racked up a good chunk of GymPact earnings before cashing them out, and immediately threw them on my Starbucks card. Thanks for all the Americanos.
"When I earned my first $20 with GymPact, I finally thought about what I wanted to do with my earnings. It seemed like a guilt-free way to spurge on a workout top since I don’t normally spend a lot of money in clothes I just sweat in. That kept me motivated to use GymPact and with every week’s attendance report, I got closer and closer to being able to cash out for something I wanted. A few weeks ago, Lululemon came out with a tank top in purple which is my favorite color so I had to nab it. Here I am at Planet Granite in San Francisco wearing the Lululemon top & tying in to a rope to rock climb. I love wearing it because I earned it with lots of hard work and sweat!I started out with a 3 days/week pact and just moved to 4 days/week a couple of weeks ago so I can keep earning more. I just adopted a dog so I’m really happy that our walks recorded via RunKeeper also count towards my pact so I might add more days to my pact!”
We had some fantastic photo submissions for our #gympactfriends contest - but this one from University of Texas at Austin students truly took the cake.
We had the chance to chat with Missy - the mastermind behind the photo.
"I found out about GymPact earlier this year through SHAPE magazine. Like any college student, any way to get easy money would definitely catch my attention! I would say I worked out pretty regularly before GymPact, however, the days when I am feeling sluggish and lazy — those are the days when GymPact pushes me through. This is an amazing app for college students to not only get some cash but to also encourage them to stay active and decrease those stress hormones! I am a student at The University of Texas at Austin and this is a photo of the organizations/ fitness programs I am apart of along with organizations that have welcomed GymPact to change their lives!"
