“We want our users to push themselves instead of just cheering on,” said Richard Wang, founder and owner of Fitocracy.  The online game and social network combines role-playing game (RPG) elements and fitness tracking to drive and motivate users to shed the pounds.

Participants who do exceptionally well can be highlighted as a group leader among their fitness friends, and can opt-in to share their latest accomplishments with their Facebook and Twitter community. Available in the iTunes App Store, the app is compatible with various mobile devices: iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation) and iPad; requires iOS 4.0 or higher.
