[prMac.com] London, England - Designed to help people live healthier lives by exercising more, StormPush Limited today introduces GymPush, a new iPhone app that combines two original and innovative ways to motivate users to go to the gym. GymPush is the first app of its kind to inspire users to get in shape, be healthier, and feel better.
"The hardest part of any work out is usually getting to the gym in the first place," said Kash Knezovich, Director of StormPush Limited, creators of the app.
More than just an exercise reminder app, GymPush employs two clever ways to inspire people to visit the gym. Firstly, by showing the money people waste by not using their gym memberships and secondly by encouraging friends to motivate each other.
"GymPush is a revolutionary approach to getting you motivated aiming to positively disrupt the casual relationship between your gym membership, your bank and your goals," said Kash Knezovich.
Without realizing it, many people waste money on their gym memberships month after month. This is because they pay whether they visit the gym or not. GymPush turns this monetary wastage into motivation by asking users to enter the monthly cost of their membership and then reminding them not only of the average daily cost but the actual cost per gym session.
GymPush also inspires people to exercise by encouraging friendly competition. The app enables gym-users who have similar goals and profiles to connect via the GymBuddy system. Users can buddy-up, see how often their friends are working out and compare stats. This in turn encourages them to work out more often and try to catch up. The Facebook sharing option also allows friends to cheer them on too.
"It was important to us that GymPush not only looked great but is intuitive due to a worldwide launch," states Paul Conway, Creative Director at StormPush Limited. "People who have tried the app have commented on both its ease-of-use and what a difference real motivation can make in reaching their fitness and health goals!"
In addition to the health benefits of exercise, it can also make people happier, which is another important motivation to work out. To assist in this, GymPush will also track and analyze a user's mood after completing sessions at the gym and generate feedback on performance. People can easily see how exercise helps them lead a happy and healthy lifestyle.
Features of the new GymPush app include:
* Mobile Motivation to Exercise: GymPush inspires users to work out in a variety of unique and exciting ways
* Exercise Reminders: Helpful push notifications make sure users do not miss their scheduled time at the gym
* Save Money: GymPush helps people not waste their gym memberships - they can see their average daily spend go down as they exercise more

* Get Inspired Together: GymPush's GymBuddy system can match users up with others who have similar goals and profiles for some friendly competition
