This App Charges You For NOT Working Out

It's totally hard to stick to your New Years Resolution, and, specifically, we get how impossible it can be to drag yourself to the gym in this cold. Guilty! We always prefer crunching on food to crunching on the floor. Which is why we're a bit apprehensive about Gym Pact, the new iPhone app that charges you when you DON'T workout. And it knows. The smartphone always knows. Now that's not to say that the idea (thought up by two Harvard grads) isn't a good one, it's just that if we okayed getting fined $5 every time we skipped out on our fitness time, we'd be broke by Valentine's Day. But cut us some slack, we also pledged to save money this year, too! (Bucks Blog NY Times)
