atari_fitSitting in front of your computer or on your couch playing video games all day is hardly conducive to having a healthy lifestyle, but here’s where it gets interesting. Atari, a company known for creating video game consoles and video games, has recently announced the launch of an app called Atari Fit.

This is a fitness app that will attempt to get gamers into shape by gamifying the process. We all know that hitting the gym and running for 30 minutes on the treadmill can be boring, so with Atari Fit, the company hopes that by making fitness activities into a game, it will make it less monotonous and will give users an incentive to workout.

The app was developed with fitness expert Michael Porter and will include over 100 different exercises and over 30 workout plans. There will also be customizable programs for users looking for a full-body workout, running programs, or conditioning programs. The app will also play nicely with fitness bands and will also connect with Google Fit that allows the user to earn in-game rewards.

The app will be available for both iOS and Android devices and is a free download, so if you’re interested just head on over to the iTunes App Store or the Google Play Store for the download.
