Fitness apps

There is a wide range of fitness apps to help you get fit and maintain your fitness level. 

One of my favourite apps that has been around for a while is My Fitness Pal. You can choose a goal such as weight loss, maintenance or weight gain and the app tracks your diet and exercise. The food database is extensive with over 11 million items and you can add a recipe to it too. You can see how by taking exercise, you can eat more if you are on a diet. 

Other fitness apps include Runkeeper where you can set running goals and review your stats, Glo which is a Yoga app suitable for beginners and the Couch To 5K app which is perfect if you are starting exercise and are building up to running or walking 5K.

Wearable technology

It's amazing how technology can be integrated into wearing gadgets and there is a wide range of wearable tech solutions these days.

Smartwatches like the Huawei band pro 4 have some incredible features that weren't widely around a decade ago in wearable tech like oxygen saturation, and smart heart rate tracking,  and allow you to sync to your computer or an app. Many smartwatches allow you to receive calls or texts as well. The Huawei band pro 4 is realistically priced at £49.99 and you just raise your wrist to check notifications and calls.

Other wearable technology includes smart clothing such as Sensoria Fitness Socks that records how your foot lands which is useful for runners, smart jewellery such as the Oura smart ring that obtains health tracking data, and Nadi X yoga pants that vibrate when your yoga pose is not correct

Smart gym equipment

There is a range of smart gym equipment to meet all budgets out there, from the high-end luxury equipment costing thousands of pounds to lower budget options.

One of the most well known is the Peleton bike. This high-end gym bike offers more than eight daily live classes along with thousands more on-demand from 40 dollars a month. If you buy an exercise bike with smart technology like this for your home, you can exercise any time of the day or night. It also has a large online community of Facebook for extra support.

Other gym equipment that uses smart technology include Technogym My Run treadmill which adapts to your running style to protect your joints, Mirror which is a reflective screen with on-demand workouts that you pay a monthly fee for and Smartrope which is a skipping rope that displays your workout data.

So these are three types of smart tech that can help your fitness. Do you use any of these? What's your favourite smart technology that helps your fitness?
