I just learned about Gamification. In particular in fitness, where it is easily applied too. But can you see it? You track your fitness activities, you get badges and points for various outcomes. It is social, so you are seeing your friends' progress and they see yours. They can challenge you too: say you plan to take 3 Zumba classes this week. A friend of yours challenges that saying you won't do it, so if you do, you get extra points. (I'm sure with little thought we can get much more interesting than that, but you get my point).
