The initial fitness surge that accompanies a new gym membership is almost inevitable. For the first few weeks, you go religiously and really feel that you're making a positive change in your life.

Then you might miss a week or two, and eventually you fall off the wagon all together. You are left with feelings of guilt at the money you've wasted, as well as the broken self-promises.

SportSetter is an app that recognises this familiar cycle, and tries to eliminate it by keeping things interesting. It has been described as a personal fitness concierge service that follows you wherever you go.

With just a few minutes of browsing, you will find numerous fitness classes and fitness events that are convenient to your current location. You will be pleasantly surprised at the amount of fitness events going on near you, and this app will cover everything from yoga to rock-climbing and spin classes.

With the assistance of this app, you will not have to stare at the same four walls of the same gym every single time that you exercise. You will need to enter your monthly fitness budget and let the app find price appropriate classes for you every time that you need them.
