Well, let me get into what helps me track my fitness on the daily. It’s an array of devices and apps I use that flavor-sizes this fitness tech gumbo. Maybe array is not the word I should be using but it’s not just one particular device or app. It takes a village to track the self-imposed body massacre I do to myself 4-6 days a week. Journey with me on my tally of things I use to get me through days such as Monday Morning Mayhem. So let’s take a gander.
Beats By Dre Powerbeats 2.0
You gotta go with that full sound wirelessly when torturing your body for the results you desire. I mean long are gone the days of tucking wires from your earphones into your shirt so it won’t be so annoying while in your sweat session.
Especially when you’re on that last rep and then you hear Eminem “Lose Yourself” blasting in your eardrum to help you push through.
MyFitnessPal App by Under Armour
Like it’s been said a million times and then some, you can’t out train a bad diet. So what better way to be accountable for what you eat by entering it into this very convenient Under Armour MyFitness Pal app. It tracks your protein, carbohydrates, fat, goals, calories and exercise if you sync it to your active fitness tracker. This covers breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks as well as your water intake. You can view your daily intake via calories, nutrients or macros.
Withings Body Composition Wi-Fi Scale by Nokia
This a full body composition analysis scale by Nokia that monitors weight (kg, lb., st lb.), bone mass, body fat & water percentage, plus muscle. Nutrition tracking with setting a weight goal and managing your daily calorie budget. All of this appears in the Nokia Health Mate app automatically via Wi-Fi. Although I only hit this up once a week this still makes my list to the fullest.
Record by Under Armour
And for the Record… this Under Armour… app is I believe the first or one of the first 24/7 connected health and fitness system. This lovely app has the pleasure of tracking fitness, activity, sleep, and nutrition. You can get personalized insights to help you look, feel and perform better. You can sync with UA HealthBox and MyFitnessPal to create one big hub of workouts, fitness classes, yoga, outdoor workouts, sports, sleep analysis, nutrition, step activity, calorie burn and weight. Recently, my only issue with the app is that it’s not loading up my photos when I post my workouts. Other than that its a good app.
On the Apple Watch, you can use the Activity app with choices such Strength Training, Indoor Walking, Outdoor Walking, Indoor Running, Outdoor Running, Dancing, Indoor Cycling, Outdoor Cycling, Elliptical, Rower, Stair Stepper or even HIIT(High-Intensity Interval Training).
You can call it going overboard but why not have two sets of records of my training, Nah mean? Just in case the other decides to not work……or maybe it’s just me.
BodySpace app by bodybuilding.com
I use this workout tracking & fitness this social app BodySpace to communicate with other workout enthusiasts. I log in my workouts or try one of the many cutting-edge workout plans already on the app from bodybuilders such as Jim Stoppanni, Lee Labrada, Jamie Eason, and Jay Cutler just to name a few. It even gives an end of the week summary of your workouts for the week. Encouraging goals and support with a laid-back feel.
Jabra Elite Sport True Wireless Earbuds
So let’s get into my other go to wireless workout earbuds by my other fave team in technology, the Jabra Elite Sport Wireless Earbuds. These work in with the Jabra Sport app that tracks your workout. This app allows you to track activities anywhere from running, cycling, skating, running(treadmill), skiing walking, spinning, walking(treadmill) or cross-training.
They fit comfortably in my ears but like one of our editor Sam’s review he stated the bass is not as prevalent as let’s say my Powerbeats but still are a very good sounding pair of earbuds. I also have to say the Bluetooth capabilities are flawless and smooth like butter. So you should most definitely add these to your collection and spread them like spreading butter on toast.
