BurnThis, an app that was previously used for connecting with friends when booking classes, has a whole new look. They've dropped the booking portion of their service and are now focused solely on the social, Well + Good writes—"think half-Pinterest and half-Instagram for the workout-loving and clean eating set," with gymspiration in the form of post-workout selfies and fruit platters arranged by color.
"As BurnThis continued to grow, we started receiving many requests from people all over the world," co-founder Anna Kohanski Mason told the site. "They all wanted the same thing: the ability to share and communicate with each other around fitness more globally."
You can upload content with quotes like "Gym Rat" or "Good Things Come to Those Who Sweat" over your own photo, and share them over other platforms so your non BurnThis friends can see, too. Plus, the site hosts posting contests with prizes—for example, posting something with the hashtag #likeachamp can get you apparel from Orangetheory Fitness.
