Training just got a whole lot easier
by on August 14, 2010
If you’ve ever struggled for motivation when it comes to looking after your body, you should think about the whole host of gadgetry out there to help you.
GPS watches, in-ear trainers, smart shoes – the reasons for staying on the sofa are dropping almost daily.
But there is one problem – the kit can be expensive. Unless you happen to have a BlackBerry, in which case this application will revolutionise your life.
It’s free for a start, but it can help you train through running, basketball, football – all manner of sports are supported.
We’re most impressed with the running side of things – no need for a show dongle to check your stride, as this uses GPS to watch your pace and let you know to speed up and slow down accordingly.
It does suffer a little in built up areas and under trees, but only slightly, meaning you might have to run a little faster than you want to at times.
But auto-uploading to a website, route checking and tailored workouts make this a no-brainer if you’re thinking of digging out the trainers.
