Cool Tools for Keeping Track – Part 3

Cool Tools for Keeping Track – Part 3

I’ve got another iPod app for you today.  It’s called “Gym Buddy“.

It helps me keep track of my strength training and aerobic training that I do at the gym. Lately the weather has been so cold and discouraging that I can’t bring myself to walk outside, so we’re doing most of our fitness stuff indoors ar the gym.

My husband and I are doing the program called “ The Slow Burn Fitness Revolution: The Slow Motion Exercise That Will Change Your Body in 30 Minutes a Week and really enjoying it.

My husband does his set while I time it, and then I do my set while he times. It’s fun doing it together, and it takes next to no time, but when you’re done – whew! – you know you’ve worked out.

I also have knee issues, so I follow that up with about 30 minutes on the stepper. I’m finding that the combination of the strength training and the stepper is really helping to improve my knees.

If you’re the kind who likes to work out in the gym, this is a great little app for you. You can create a a workout (or 20), and it will keep track of that workout for you – your history, and results. You can call your exercises whatever you want, or use the suggested exercises already programmed in there. It will also time your reps for you, if you want. It keeps track of your body progress, your exercise history, and a whole host of other things.  It’s VERY easy to use as you workout, and is very intuitive.

This is the kind of app you download first, play with, set up (give yourself about an hour to get everything lined up the way you want it) and THEN go to the gym. Don’t try to set it up while you’re working out. It will make you mad 🙂

You can get more information on what’s included by checking out their iTunes page.

Here’s wishing you physical, mental, and spiritual wellness, simply through walking!
