Ahh Technology

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

There are literally no excuses to not get some fitness in each day. I get bored easily so I like a lot of different sources for workouts. Gone are the days where I do a set of DVD's for a full month. Now at the snap of the finger (or click of the mouse) I can get any and every kind of workout I have ever imagined.

I currently pull workouts from the following sources:
Skimble Phone (Android) App
IPad apps
Various free websites (SP, Doyogawithme, etc. etc. ETC.)

I can find anything from a 10 minute HIIT training to a full length workout... so easily.

That's the good part of technology.

Sometimes too much of a good thing can be... umm... annoying.

When I go for a run I currently have (4) YES FOUR devices on my person. Ipod for tunes. Phone for mileage/route tracking (mapmyrun app). Heart rate monitor and watch for calorie burnage. And Fitbit pedometer for total steps. So as you can see sometimes it could be prohibitive to take a run if it takes all this work just to get going! I am working on sometimes taking off without all the "stuff" but usually my need to KNOW DETAILS wins out.

But... take advantage of what is out there friends... it's NEVER been easier to access fitness resources!!!

    This is such a good reminder. I've been using all sorts of excuses for not putting together a new strength training routine, and there are so many resources out there that will let me build exactly what I need.

    I hear ya! I sometimes can't even fathom going on a small walk with the little one without bringing my phone to at least track mileage. And let's face it, I'm walking with a 3 years old, my pace is going to be slow and my milage won't be anything to write home about ( that is if I get far enough from the front door to not just yell lol). There are days I'm in the same boat as you. Mp3 player, phone, HRM, insane! But I have to say, it's better than running is silence and having to do the math in your head for distance
