Fitness and technology these days seem to go hand in hand. What’s the point in working out if you can’t see how many calories you’ve burnt… right? With advancements in technology these days it’s become ever so simple to track what your body goes through in a workout, a leisurely walk down the street or even what happens whilst you’re sleeping. Now technology like this is also a super creative way to plan your next workout routine. This is simply because after you’ve finished a workout whilst wearing your Fitbit, the device tells you how much cardio you’ve done, how many calories you’ve burnt and how many hours in the day you were active. For example, if you find that your cardio levels are low, in your next workout you know you’ll need to add more squats or burpees which are both heavily cardio centred exercise movements.
At I-Motion Gym we believe that mental health is just as important as physical health. Because of this one function of the Fitbit we love is the sleep tracker. With the sleep tracker, the main focus is working your way towards getting a better night’s sleep. One thing that Fitbit said that really stuck out for us was ‘If you’re ready to start making the most of your day, start by improving your night’. Without the right amount of sleep your body needs there is no way you can perform at your best. There are also potential risks with lack of sleep during exercise because if your body is not rested fully then it will not have enough energy to burn off fat and strengthen muscle tissue. Get a good nights sleep and your body will reward you by working 100% harder for what your mind wants to achieve.
One final thing our PT team love at I-Motion is how personal the Fitbit helps to create the most personal workout possible for our clients. The movement, heart rate and also cardio trackers help tailor each specific exercise to what our client’s goals are during their personal training session. The PTs can also keep an eye on the heart monitoring tracker, so they know when the workout needs to be more intense or if they need to slow down and let the client take a well-deserved break.Back to Blog
