Snarky Fitness App 'Carrot Fit,' Tough Love Or Too Much?

Posted: Updated:

WMDT 47 News - Research says less than ten percent of us keep our New Years' resolutions.  Well, if you're struggling to reach your fitness goals, how about this sarcastic smartphone app for some motivation.

A robotic female voice welcomes you to Carrot Fit with the phrase "greetings, chubby human, I am your new fitness overlord."

It's the latest technology aimed at helping the not the easily motivated get in shape.  The app's creator included over 2,000 sayings in order to '"threaten, intimidate, and ridicule" people into losing weight.

So, what do folks here on the shore think?

"Sure, whatever works," said Mary of Seaford.

Mary from Salisbury wasn't so convinced, saying "I don't really like how they said 'do the impossible' because then that's just saying it's impossible, it doesn't really give anybody motivation; I think maybe a positive stance would be better."

If a bit of snark and sarcasm is your idea of motivation, Carrot Fit is available at the iTunes store for a $1.99.
