I realized (again) on vacation how much of a technology geek I am. When going to France for a (primarily) cycling vacation, who else brings a boatload of electronics with them? My backpack was filled with all the “essentials” any good digital geek needs. It’s a good thing laptops have gotten so think and light, because that went with us all over the country. And of course my phone was a requirement when on the bike, so we could snap quick (but high quality) photos along the route. All the ones you saw on instagram were from my phone!
The thing is, I love all my gadgets and they make my life easier! In the realm of health & fitness, technology makes it possible to do what I do. Whether I’m in the gym killing a strength workout or prepping a meal, there are a few things that I wouldn’t want to do without.
5 Fitness Finds for the Techno Geek
1. Samsung Galaxy Smartphone
No Apple in my house, I’m an Android girl. I’ve had 3 generations of the Samsung Galaxy so far, with my current phone being the GS4. I love it. And I can’t do a workout without it. I load all my strength workouts into the JEFIT app, so it can guide me through every rep. I track my daily water intake with the Water Your Body app. I also check the progress of my athletes workouts using the mobile apps for Training Peaks and Trainerize. And don’t forget the post-workout selfie!
