Lazy Jar is a fitness app that makes you pay for being lazy.
It's like a gym where you only pay if you don't go.
Unlike most other fitness apps of this nature, Lazy Jar doesn't reward you for working out. It punishes you for not working out.
Lazy Jar does this by reading your wearable data (e.g., via HealthKit) and determining if you met your weekly personal goals. And if you didn't, it penalizes you a monetary amount which you bet against yourself. Your penalty will be used to keep the app operational and pay our developers.
HOW IT WORKS
You pick a set of weekly goals that are trackable on your Fitbit® or Apple Watch.
Select the duration of your commitment — Eg. for three months.
Set your weekly monetary penalty for failing to meet these fitness targets.
Your commitment will start on Monday of the following week.
Once the commitment starts, your responsibility is to meet these weekly goals or be penalized the amount you set for yourself for any week where you miss your fitness targets.
Do this till the duration is up.
WHY LAZY JAR
Lazy Jar allows people of all different fitness levels to become a better version of their current selves.
With Lazy Jar you get to set your weekly personal goals.
Whether you're an athlete or just an individual who feels they could use more exercise in their life, Lazy Jar allows you to set weekly fitness metrics that can allow you to accomplish this goal.
Whether you want to get six pack abs or want to maintain your cardiovascular health, Lazy Jar can help you to achieve and sustain these goals.
Lazy Jar doesn't prescribe workout routines. You have to find a way to burn calories. Consistently sweating is more critical than the type of contemporary workout you adopt.
Lazy Jar forces you to get the most out of your gym by encouraging you to work out or be penalized for not doing so. It's really that simple.
Lazy Jar wouldn't cost you a dime if you always meet your weekly goals. And the best part is that you end up a stronger fitter person for consistently meeting your goals.
Lazy Jar supports:
Apple Watch via HealthKit

Ratings and Reviews
Love this app, now it’s even better!
So excited I can now use my Apple Watch with this app! For people like me that just need a tiny little extra motivation to keep active, losing money for not working out is the difference between getting up to workout or not. I love it! Make sure to make your “bet” high enough it will hurt if you miss a week’s goal.
Developer Response ,
Glad to hear it! 😊
Excellent App to replace PACT
This app is fantastic! Easy to use and although at this time it only can be used with Fitbit or Applewatch I’m sure more devices will be coming. The creator answers ALL questions and is very responsive. He has answered every email of mine. It’s exactly what I was looking for to replace pact app. Also any money goes to St Jude (only if you break commitment) Great!! Thank you!!
It keeps getting better.
Very excited to see that the app has a new version available. I didn’t realize how much I cheated on my fitness goals until now. This app can be greatly useful for those who are serious about trying to become active again.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
