While nothing can take the place of good old-fashioned motivation, technology can play a vital role in helping you stay fit. You will still have to put in the work (there is no app for that…yet!), but with so many amazing innovations on your side, why not use them to make things a little easier?
Here are a few of our favourite electronics and pieces of technology to help boost your workouts:
Smartphones & Apps
With over 12,000 smartphones currently listed on Gumtree, you have the pick of the litter! Once you’ve got your smartphone ready to go, you will find a plethora of amazing apps in the App store or Play store that will help you reach your fitness goals. Apps to look for will include workout routines, healthy recipes, fitness videos, and goal tracking.
Now that you have your new smartphone, check out its trusty calendar app. One of the main reasons why people give up on their fitness goals is because they have trouble setting time aside for workouts or healthy food preparation. Setting a daily reminder in your calendar with reminders will be a game changer!
Another great option is a smart watch. This wearable technology, with its fitness, health, and goal tracking, is a huge hit in the fitness community. Some smart watches even come equipped with technology that is able to monitor your heart rate and coach you through your goals.
The best part about the internet is that we can get almost anything with the click of a button. When it comes to fitness, free online videos are just like having your own personal trainer in the comfort of your home without the large cost.
Now that you’ve got the knowledge, it’s time to get moving! Head to gumtree.co.za or your Gumtree app (click for Apple & Android) and don’t forget to use your location settings to find electronics close to home.
