How about Fitocracy? Its a website that seeks to incoporate "Gaming" elements into fitness, by awarding you points for your workouts and tracking your "experience" and level as you gain it, as well as providing "quests" for you to complete. Its still in beta, but there are ways to get invites.
I'm not sure this question really counts as fitness-related, but hey, here you go. Fitocracy seems to have a pretty obvious programming flaw which allows you to see the names and descriptions of all quests even if you aren't supposed to see them. Log into Fitocracy, then open another browser tab and request this URL: http://www.fitocracy.com/get_quest/3/ ...
You may be interested in checking out "ZOMBIES, RUN!" They are a Kickstarter project that combines GPS run tracking with an RPG-like soundtrack for while you run. It is already funded (they got $72,627 of their $12,500 goal) so you will have to wait for awhile. But, you can get more details, pre-order, and watch a concept video on their site.
Fitango.com Fitango is a fitness and goal tracking web site that goes beyond merely logging your progress and offers guides, expert-created plans, easy tracking, and peer-based motivation to keep you moving towards your goals—fitness-related or otherwise. (lifehacker review) You can create an account using Facebook, which allows you to share your ...
I doubt that there is any such website as there is no profit for these companies in sharing their data with such an aggregator. Although some sites work in cooperation with other sites, eg Fitocracy can pull your running data from Runkeeper and Runtastic does similar stuff, I don't know of a public API to access the data. Even if it were possible to pull ...
Have you checked out ChallengeLoop? It is both an iPhone app and website that motivates you to achieve your health and fitness goals. You can challenge yourself and your friends on the system and add photos, videos, and comments along the way showing your progress. They have Facebook and Twitter sharing capability (I know that's what you're looking for). ...
The phrase that you want to look for is "gamification", it's a somewhat new field of study in motivation, and it's basically how to apply game concepts such as higher reputation, achievement badges, privileges for higher rep players (Does this system sound familiar? :) ) to everyday concepts from play to work and achieve higher work levels and output. http:/...
FitRPG fits your bill, I think. There is no storyline (their Kickstarter to add one failed to fund), but you do get to upgrade your character.
I like myfitnesspal.com It is primarily a calorie tracker, but it also keeps a log of nutrition, exercise, and weight. It is free and has iphone/android/blackberry apps. The food calorie calculations use an excellent database of foods and an adequate database of exercises. The foods have most groceries, popular restaurants, and recipes from popular ...
Exrx.net has been my go-to for years. It might not be perfect, but I think it has the highest blend of objectivity, science-based approach, breadth, and physiology. No API however.
The closest one is a site called Noom. It's a diet/exercise site but it will send notifications to you to inform you of upcoming exercises and helps you keep your schedule. I use MapMyRun to plan my workouts, and I can upload my Garmin GPS data to the site to show what I've done. Other sites could include SuperBetter, Fitocracy, RunKeeper, FitBit, ...
After "veteran runner right here", comes "Mile record here I come!" ( Run a mile in under 5 minutes) After trying 10k comes "heroic half marathon" and then theres "MAster of MArathons"
You'll find that there are many paths to the same goal. Both of these choose similar, but slightly different paths toward the goal of 100 push ups. The Alternative plan opts to start with lower volume at first to help you get acclimated to it. I would use Alterantive100Pushups.com if I'm not used to working my arms and chest, or a rank beginner. I might ...
I've had good luck with weighttraining.com for descriptions and videos. I also know myfitnesspal.com has an API for their food/nutrition/exercise database. There's also Fat Secret http://platform.fatsecret.com/api/ and Open Fitness http://www.openfitapi.com/about for API tools, but I'm not sure exactly what you're trying to do so I don't know if those are ...
Take a look at LiveStrong (Lance Armstrong's site) @ www.livestrong.com and Body Building at www.bodybuilding.com
JEFIT is a site and an Android app, mostly targeted for bodybuilders. It has a huge databases of exercises, almost all of them have illustrations and explanations about how to perform them (example). You can set your routine with the exercises you're doing, and log your workout each time you're at the gym, using the app. You can then track your progress ...
