Technology has advanced modern human’s ability to access just about anything, including resources for fitness and training. The introduction of the Fit Bit – a tracking bracelet and accompanying phone app – has allowed people to be even more involved with how their training is actually having an effect on their health.

What It Does

First of all, the Fit Bit tracks a number of things throughout your day related to your health and wellness. This includes number of steps you take in a day, how much you travel, how many calories you burn, and plenty of other statistics that help you keep an eye on your activity. This technology has proven helpful to millions of people who previously didn’t really have any idea how much activity they were getting in a day, and how it impacted their physical health.

How It Helps

Fit Bits have plenty of benefits, among them helping you stay accountable for reaching your goals. If you are trying to lose weight and want to make sure you burn off more calories than you take in, watching your Fit Bit will let you know how close you are to reaching you goals.

But, the Fit Bit can also be extraordinarily helpful when it comes to sharing information with others that you work with, such as personal trainers in New York City and medical professionals. Fit Bit syncs with an app on your phone that allows you to share data with the touch of a button. Not only is this helpful for day-to-day tracking, it also helps those who are committed to working out to stay accountable when they are away from their trainers and routines.

For instance, if you regularly work out with trainers in New York but will be traveling to Florida for several weeks, you can take the workout plan you’ve developed with your trainer on vacation with you. By sharing the data accumulated on your Fit Bit when you are away, your data can keep you accountable for sticking with the plan and seeing results.

This is an amazing benefit of this technology given that you no longer have to worry about seeing through your workouts on your own. Now no matter where you are, your trainer can access everything that you’ve done during the day, and can give you the tips and motivation necessary to keep seeing your exercises through.
