The Pocket Personal Trainer

Everywhere we go, we get bombarded with images of what good health is supposed to look like.  It’s not that skinny model on the runway.  It’s not that curvy opera singer.  It might not even be your personal trainer.

Health is a personal journey and is unique to the individual. The good news is there’s an app for that. New technologies are helping millions stay on track with their health and fitness goals.  And it can help you reach your goals too!

First, we have the Fitbit app.  Fitbit is a company that manufactures activity trackers that record everything from the steps you take to how well you sleep.  All the data from the tracker syncs wirelessly with the app on your phone meaning you don’t have to enter that data yourself.

The Fitbit system costs anywhere from $30 to $130.  Once you have the tracker an annual membership gives you access to your data from the company website.

However, there are free apps out there.  MyFitnessPal is one of them. This app tracks many of the things that can help you reach your fitness goals.  But because you have to enter all the data it’s a bit more time consuming.

Both of these apps are designed to support your personal fitness goals.  People currently using them will tell you that having all the data at their fingertips inspires them to work even harder.  Who knew a little device you carry around with you every day could be your own personal trainer 24/7!

Take control of your wellness goals and go check out MyFitnessPal.com and Fitbit.com for more information on how to get involved.
