An app to bring out the Spartan in you.
There are plenty of I apps on the Google Play J Store that try to get you fit and healthy, easing you away from a sedentary lifestyle by getting you more active more often. On top of those are apps for the fitness enthusiast, that focus on different aspects of your body rather than just keeping in shape. The 300 Gym Workout is probably the pinnacle of the latter, an app designed specifically to make you look like an oiled-up Spartan from Zak Snyder's blockbuster film.
This isn’t a workout for the faint of heart, indeed it recommends that anyone with a medical condition should contact their GP before they take it on, but it is well presented, and has a decent central competitive hook that will keep wannabe warriors happy. The workout takes the form of a series of activities, which are to be repeated without breaks, while an in-app stopwatch keeps a track of your time. Once you've completed the gruelling repetitions, you can share your time on Facebook, displaying for the whole world to see how strong and manly and like a Spartan you are. It's that intriguing metagame that makes The 300 Gym Workout stand out from the crowd, turning the lonely experience of doing a ridiculous amount of push-ups into a way to brag to, and compete with, your social-networking friends.
This is the kind of integration we're starting to expect from our mobile apps, and while it might not be the best-looking creation out there, the 300 Gym Workout does what it sets out to do admirably. It'll be far too tough for some, but if you're looking for a workout app hat does things a little differently, then you could do a lot worse than using this to sculpt your chiselled, bronzed abs
