It’s June, which means you’ve got to get moving if you don’t want to pile on the winter weight. No one likes working out when you have to pay a boatload of money to run around like a hamster on a wheel. But Teemo aims to make getting off your butt a lot easier, and you don’t even need any fancy equipment.
What does it do?
This social fitness app turns exercise into a game. It transports you to exotic places where you’re faced with little challenges, such as climbing Mt Everest. It’s set up like an interval training format, so you’ll do a few minutes of walking or running, with push-ups or another exercise in between.
Why do we like it?
Do you ever get to the gym and have no idea what to do? Do I ride the bike or do I jog on the treadmill? And what kind of weights should I lift? You won’t have to worry about those things anymore, because Teemo lays out a routine for you. You can team up with your friends to take on different physical tasks in exotic locales — kind of like the Amazing Race, but it’s on your iPhone rather than a reality TV show. You don’t need any extra weights or anything, it comes with a timer, and you don’t have to skip around to other apps, because it lets you play Spotify or iTunes music while you sweat it out.
