'Wellcoin' is a new fitness app that provides tangible rewards for those who fulfill their exercise goals. As many people know, it can be tough to find the motivation to eat right and exercise regularly. This app helps encourages users to make healthier lifestyle choices by giving them the opportunity to earn real rewards.

Unlike other fitness apps, Wellcoin is a cross between a social media platform and a reward system. Users who download the app can report any wellness-friendly activities they perform, such as going to the gym or making a healthy meal. In return, users will receive online points that they can cash in for tangible rewards. These prizes can include everything from healthy snacks to workout equipment. The platform operates on an honor system, meaning users are responsible for tracking their own activities.

Aside from prizes, Wellcoin also provides a social community for users to motivate one another to continue making healthy choices.
