5 ways your smartphone can get you into shape
Ah, spring is in the air, and we all know what that means! No, it’s not about the spring showers folks, but rather, it’s the short time we have before summer’s impending arrival. Knowing that, many people are probably starting right now in getting that beach body ready for those hot summer days down by the shore. Some of us might be bursting full of energy right now trying to get into shape, but interestingly enough, our smartphones can be our best personal trainers fit for the undertaking.

From the looks of it, our smartphones seem as though they’re capable of doing almost anything when it comes to benefiting our lives. Frankly, I attribute many of my fitness accomplishments to my smartphone – mainly because I centered my goals around it. Well, it’s not like my smartphone is constantly badgering or “motivating” me to not eat this, or start doing more of that. Come to think about it, reaching any fitness goal comes from within first and foremost. Meaning, you genuinely want to reach a fitness goal on the inside.

Over the course of the last year, I can vouch tremendously on how smartphones can be used strategically to lose weight – or merely just reach a specific fitness accomplishment. Ultimately though, it comes down to your own determination, perseverance, and motivation to actually make that change you’ve always wanted. Alrighty folks, so here are 5 ways your smartphone can get you into shape!

I use the accupedo app to make sure I take at least 10,000 steps a day. Its very accurate and free!

I love the widget. Helps to keep it on your mind too so you never slack off.

Buy a Lumia 900 and use it! It doesn´t matter the application really, you´ll get good biceps.

Nexercise is pretty cool too, but I think I might just try a couple of these too.

Thanks John.

Not To Sound Like A Fan boy but to avoid all the apps Buy a S4. S Health sounds like it takes care of most of it, and I'm sure updates might come, but for now these sound awesome

You forgot to add a sixth item - just get one of those Samsung Galaxy Note or Galaxy Mega thingys and work those biceps just trying to pick them up!
