When Self Magazine launched its very own Facebook game centered around health and fitness, we have to admit that we were a tad confused with the platform choice. Now, publisher Conde Nast looks to make good on its promise of a social game that promotes healthy living through, you know, actually living out a healthy lifestyle? Workout in the Park has launched on iOS.

This mobile version of the social game of the same name brings many of the same concepts over to a smaller screen, like mini games that are fitness and health-themed. But perhaps the most interesting features are those that drive players to make a change in their lifestyle, like the My Goals feature. This keeps track of players' real-life goals, rewards them for staying the course and makes it possible for players to motivate their friends to join in on the action.

Additions like a check-in feature seems to add to the whole "accountability factor," of this mobile edition of Workout in the Park. (And we all know how effective that can be as a method for trying to shed the pounds.) With a price tag of "free", it's worth a shot to help keep yourself in tip top shape, no?
