Now You Can Track Your Fitness Progress Easier Than Ever (And Achieve Your Goals)
Over the past few years, there has been a huge boom in the latest fitness tech gear – such as the Fitbit and other gadgets that tracks your fitness data directly into an App (where you can view your progress).
Quantified goal-setting is a great way to ensure that you’ll always achieve your target fitness levels or body that you want.
For example, if you wanted to lose 1KG in weight per week, you could focus on burning an excess of 7,500 calories. This means if you burn approximately 1,000 excess calories a day, you’re scientifically guaranteed to lose that 1 Kilo in a week.
In light of this, these new fitness gadgets are great for letting you know exactly how much exercise you’re doing every day and tracking your macro-nutrients/calories consumed (e.g. through MyFitnessPal). It’s a great feeling to know that you’ve reached your targets each day and knowing that you’re guaranteed results as long as you stick to your workouts and meal plans.
We’ve had several new gadgets come in that we think would be a great addition to your fitness collection that’ll help you reach your fitness goals quickly and reliably.
1. Smart Rope
The Smart Rope is a high-tech skipping rope that:
- Automatically counts your number of skips
- Measures calories burned
- Provides HIIT training recommendations
And also syncs to the Smart Gym App (free for both Android and iPhones) which saves your data and also allows you to share your progress with friends.
Using social apps / platforms are a great way to give yourself accountability and motivation to get through those tough workouts.
Jump rope is one of the best ways to get your daily cardio in and the Smart Rope is a high-tech version of your traditional skipping rope.
It’s also portable so you can workout on-the-go and makes sure you can stay consistent with your workouts, no matter what your schedule looks like.
Overall if you’re a fitness buff, you should definitely have one of these in your arsenal.
