If you need a little bit extra motivation to get you going to the gym, the Pavlok fitness bracelet might be ideal for you. This workout wristband sends you tiny shocks as punishment if you don't get your butt to the gym.

To help people get into the routine of working out Pavlok designed a wearable fitness bracelet that sends the wearer subtle electric shocks if they don't engage in physical activity. The idea is that if the wearer wants to avoid being shocked, they need to go get active in some sort of way whether it's going to the gym, lifting weights or heading out on the jog. The Pavlok bracelet can also be applied to a wide variety of tasks -- like writing, learning a new language or getting work done -- when you need an extra kick of motivation.
