Have You Embraced High-Tech Workouts?

Earlier this week, Jenn reviewed Exercise TV’s workout downloads. While I haven’t tried them yet, I think they would be super convenient when traveling. Plus, they’re cheap! In the age of accessible technology, how tech-savvy are your workouts?

  • No, unless you count tennis shoes as high tech.
  • A little. I run with music and am not opposed to workout technology, but I’m no Judy Jetson.
  • You name it, I hug it. Heart rate monitors, iPods, GPS systems, downloads and computerized shoes.

    I have a heart rate monitor . . . and I enthusiastically use the WiiFit. I can’t believe that wasn’t mentioned. I’ve lost 55 lbs so far (of course, not doing JUST that, but it got me started AND tracks my progress)

    Though I am not a “Fit Bottomed Girl,” I really enjoy reading your blog…

    Me, I am all wired up, but I have a gym in the basement, so I am not dragging all of that stuff around.

    My list:
    Wii Fit
    Dance Dance Revolution (yes, I count that)
    Heart Rate Monitor
    Stopwatch for Jumping Rope
    TV for riding the elliptical (does that count?)

    I really want to get the Nike shoes that speed up the music to match your pace, its on my Christmas list.

    Keep up the great blog, I will be visiting often!

    Him, Me, etc: A Wii Fit review is on the way in the new year…

    Benjamin: Fit Bottomed Boys are more than welcome…and Dance Dance definitely counts. I’m jealous of your setup!

    Total Luddite … or at least I would be if the iPod weren’t so darn handy 🙂

  6. Not Jillian Michaels says:

    I listen to music when I workout, but I don’t need any fancy technology to workout.

    I get in and get out, ramp up the intensity and then I am done in less than 30 minutes! Get my cardio, strength, endurance, flexibility, agility, coordination, accuracy, power, balance and speed in one workout 🙂
