Fitocracy, free  

“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. The network helps you track your progress through the points system. Users who level up will gain numerous points, unlock achievements and quests, and, ultimately, lose weight.  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.
