If you’re someone that needs a little motivation to keep up your fitness program, then Animoca’s Garfield Fit health app might just be the most fun way possible to get you moving on your iOS device or Apple Watch.
The free-to-play app features the world’s cutest lasagna-lover, Garfield the cat, as your exercise buddy.
Garfield Fit turns exercising into a game to help increase your motivation and keep you on track to meet your exercise goals. It features a sophisticated pedometer with tailored fitness programs for adults and children, and includes interaction with Garfield, Jon, Odie, and other characters from the series created by Jim Davis.
The app is really easy to use: all you have to do is launch the app then start walking or running. Garfield will respond to your activity level and track various information, including steps taken, pace, calories used, and time spent exercising. The app lets you set daily goals for you or your children, and then work to achieve them with Garfield and his friends.
The personalized coaching offered by the app is based on algorithms that adaptively adjust training schedules so that you can continue to challenge yourself. You’ll also get frequent progress reports to help you stay motivated, and you can earn coins the more you walk or run to unlock outfits for Garfield.
Garfield’s creator Jim Davis said: “People don’t often associate Garfield with fitness, but in truth his motto has always been “Eat. Sleep. PLAY.” And Garfield should be a great motivator. After all, if Garfield can get fit, anyone can!”
Robby Yung, CEO of Animoca Brands, commented: “A sedentary lifestyle is extremely detrimental to health. The World Health Organization recommends 60 minutes of daily exercise for children and 150 minutes weekly for adults, but too many people fall short. In Garfield Fit we leverage the famously lazy cartoon cat to make healthy exercise goals attainable and fun.”
