How to get it: After subscribing to the program, you’ll receive an email on January 5, 2016 with a link to download the Stick To It fitness app. Links will be provided for Android or Apple iOS.

How it works: The app is designed to take myriad approaches to motivating its users. Once opened, each app is randomly assigned one of the motivational exercise methods. Users are asked to follow the instructions provided…

Expectations: Once downloaded, the user will customize the app with their own fitness goals. It could be going to the gym 3 times a week, doing yoga twice a week, or running around the neighborhood 5 times a week. The user will simply enter the exercise(s) and schedule they wish to maintain.

The fitness app will deliver messages on a daily basis from January 5 to the end of February. All data will be automatically sent back to Ariely’s lab for analysis. Then on March 8, 2016, a podcast on Only Human will deliver the results of the study.
