High tech fits in your fitness regimen

          You don’t need equipment, music, or computer related devices to be healthy. Exercise even in its simplest form is good for you. However, technology continues to change the way we do things, the way we work, and the way we play. This technology has also spread into the field of health and wellness.  There is new equipment, gadgets, and programs, as well as, new ways that we communicate. 

          “Communication” technology relates to how we get our information. Speaking as a health club owner, finding ways to continue to motivate, teach and educate remains high on our priority list. With one-third of Americans falling into the obese category it’s important to get the message out on proper exercise and nutrition. Whether you are a fitness enthusiast or more of a couch potato, you probably are influenced by the technology of smart phones, I-pads and electronic devices. These “tools” can help simplify a fitness program.  Scheduling work-outs, recording your weight and keeping a food log are just a few ways to use technology to your benefit. Communication technology for fitness also includes social networking. It is here that you can participate and talk with others about health issues. And it can become a motivator and help you feel like you are a part of a group with similar interests.

            When setting a fitness goal, technology has made getting results more quantifiable. It seems that there is some kind of a gadget that will measure just about everything. A heart rate monitor is one such gadget. These monitors measure, not only heart rate, but fat burning zones, calories burned. You can even track your results on-line. Fitness equipment plays into this technology. You can get on a piece of equipment, for example an AMT (Adaptive Motion Trainer®) by Precor. With this machine you can go from short to long strides, walking to running, and climbing to lunging. In addition, you can monitor speed, time, heart rate and more. Remember when all you did was step on a treadmill and press “start?”

            As technology advances, so does our desire to be entertained. Fitness now comes with entertainment. Small personal viewing screens adorn many pieces of cardio equipment. With so many channels to choose from, it’s hard to get bored. I-pods for music and Kindles for reading accompany many people during their work-outs. You can now buy an mp3 player and headphones for use while swimming!

            We, as humans don’t really like change. However, it does become necessary in many facets of life. Even if we don’t want to play along, it’s nice to know what is available and you can make the choice. High tech has made exercise more fun.  Enjoy the benefits that high-tech gadgets and equipment can provide. A healthy lifestyle can’t be obtained without you participating. Be inspired by motivational people. Engage in something that makes the connection for you. Embrace this time of technology, but remember healthy bodies and happy lives still need the human touch!
