So you spent the winter months lounging on the couch,watching your favorite episodes of Friends, and now summer is here and you need to shape up….or maybe that is just me. Anyways, I know I am not the only one that needs a little help staying motivated! So we have put together some great tech that will help you get motivated to shape up this summer.
First up is the FIT LINK from BodyMedia – this armband is a monitoring system that tracks the calories you have burned during your daily activity as well as measuring the intensity of your workouts. This silver armband acts as a personal motivator to push you to take more steps during the day, take the stairs instead of the elevator, and altogether do more activity. One thing that is important to a healthy lifestyle is sleep. The FIT LINK automatically captures your sleep efficiency, which is an important factor in weight loss. Also, your information is easily tracked on BodyMedia’s online Activity Manager. It allows you to keep track of your daily acticity as well as log your food intake and make it easier to get into shape this summer.
There are several ways to measure the success of a healthy lifestyle. It could be how you feel about yourself, how you look and of course the number on the scale. The Aria Wi-Fi Smart Scale will help you get where you want to be. This black scale tracks your weight, body-fat percentage and BMI (Body Mass Index). It is able to track your long-term progress syncing your stats with online graphs and mobile tools. Knowing how you are progressing on a day to day or week to week basis will keep you motivated!
If running is your thing, then a watch to track your distance is a must have! The Garmin Forerunner 10 GPS Running Watch not only tracks your distance, but also your pace, calories and identifies personal records. This allows you to challenge yourself to run faster and go father every time you hit the trail. This bright and stylish watch is comfortable and easy to use.
Music is a major part of working out. It helps you get motivated and really pushes you to take your work out to the next level. Whether Jock Jams or Journey is your song of choice, you need a way to hold your music player while being active. The Life Works Universal Arm Band is designed to do just that. This slim, lightweight sleeve is made for an iPhone, iPod or other smartphones and meant to protect your phone while working out. It is formfitting and made of ultralight spandex to make it an easy addition to whatever activity you are enjoying.
Finally, to be able to enjoy those tunes you need a great pair of headphones to listen to those jams. The Phillips ActionFit Earhook Earbuds are perfect for working out. The lightweight fit is made to be used during sports or long runs. The amazing sound will keep you motivated and they are so lightweight you will barely know they are there. It comes with an adjustable earhook and soft silicon caps. Also, since you will be working up a big sweat, you can wash them because they are made of washable water-resistant materials.
