Fitness Gadget Registry Guide

There is such a vast selection of fitness apps and tools on the market these days. How do you know which ones are worth the splurge? Today I help you to wade through the advertising by recommending 3 fitness gadgets that can actually benefit your workouts, and are worthy of your registry dollars.

Before we get to the good stuff, keep in mind that if you don’t use it (your data) you lose it (your money). The majority of my clients who purchase expensive fitness gadgets are wasting their money because they assume that simply wearing the technology is enough. Collecting data about the state of your health and fitness has no value if you don’t plan to act upon the results and make the necessary changes to improve them.

Personally I like to keep things simple – a pair of high quality training shoes, a hat if I’m outdoors, and my cell phone and house key tucked into an armband are all I need. I also track my workouts in Evernote and have Spotify Premium for offline playlists.

With my birthday coming up next month I created a short list of the fancy fitness tools that I would like. I hope it helps you as you put together your healthy registry.

Wii Fit Plus 

This is a recommendation that I bet your fiance will love! Workouts include aerobics, balance, yoga and strength training, or spend date night hitting the snowboard slopes in the comfort of your own living room.

The Dash  

These cordless, biosensing headphones don’t just play music, but also track heart rate, pace variation, oxygen intake and body temperature, all of which connects to a mobile app. The Dash, by Bragi, will be released in September but you can pre-order now.

iPad 

Stay connected to your favorite Jennifer Dene workouts and other online training sites anywhere, anytime. Some additional fitness benefits include the ability to organize your training playlists, track your workouts to monitor progression, and install any of your favorite fitness apps. Plus, during your post-workout stretches you can browse Pinterest and Instagram for wedding inspiration and answer emails to your suppliers.

Why Brides Need To Rethink Weight Loss
