If you were up and running in the 80s you probably remember Atari, the name which was synonymous with video games around the world. While you may think the company is ancient history, they’ve just come back with their own Android fitness app that motivates you to stay in top shape with games.
Once you install the app you get daily tips and exercise plans which you need to follow in order to earn points to play classic Atari games like Centipede and Super Breakout. There is also a multiplayer element in there, where you can compete with friends and share your workout to get to the top of leaderboards.
There are over 100 exercises that you can do with the app, and Atari has collaborated with Michael Porter, who is a certified personal trainer, to set up the exercise routines. Another great feature is the app’s compatibility with the more popular fitness tracking apps like Runkeeper and Google Fit, which can help you keep track of your workout and calorie levels.
Fitness devices like Fitbit and Jawbone can also be used with the app and you can obviously share your progress socially on Facebook and Twitter.
Unfortunately though, the app’s first release has a lot of bugs and you may have trouble creating an account initially. However, if you can sign up and connect it to your Google Fit account you’re going to like the idea Atari is pitching.
