This is a motivational app that uses the power of money to get your patients to the gym.

Users set up a workout schedule, and must check in at their gym each scheduled day, or real money is taken from a credit card on file, and put into a pot for users who made it to the gym each of their scheduled days that week. Money that users are rewarded can be cashed in via PayPal. Users can set their desired workout frequency, and how much money they want to put on the line for each day. 
 
Overall Impressions from Around the Web:
 
The app is getting very positive feedback. Having to exercise or else lose money is not receiving as much enthusiasm but does get grudging admissions of effectiveness. This could be a very effective tool for some patients — others maybe not so much!
