Teemo

What It Is: Who said working out had to be so much “work”? Certainly not the folks at Teemo. This app turns fitness into a game that doesn’t require a gym, exercise equipment, or even running shoes. Invite Facebook friends to a “virtual challenge” in a specific environment, like a jungle, mountain, or desert. Participants win by doing expert-approved cardio, strength, and flexibility exercises which range from easy to difficult. Teemo makes exercising a social event and gets people to incorporate movement into their daily lives.
