Working out in winter always seems like a drag, but these fun fitness technology ideas might just be what you need to feel inspired.
The app – Zombies, Run!
If you’re struggling to find the motivation to run, this is the solution.
The hilarious app puts you in the middle of a zombie apocalypse; the story unfolds as you run for your life, with sound effects, music and narration to keep you going. There are over 200 missions to keep you coming back!
Zombies, Run! is free for iOS/Apple; Android. There’s a paid-for option to upgrade to Pro.
The website – Live Streaming Fitness
Leaving the house on a cold winter night after work never seems appealing. Try classes streamed over the Internet, which you can do in your lounge.
Usually, these work with live classes streamed from the studios of trainers straight to your computer, tablet, or smartphone. You can find everything from yoga to kick-boxing taught this way. Give livestreamingfitness.com a try.
The motivation – iFrogz Summit Wireless Sport Performance Earbuds
Whether you enjoy running, gym workouts or dancing, there’s always one thing that you need – the right music to motivate you.
However, if you’re anything like us, you often find yourself tangled up in headphone wires. Alternatively, your earbuds fall out when you get carried away with your workout.
This is why we love the iFrogz Summit Sport Performance Wireless Earbuds. They operate via Bluetooth so you can simply pop your iPod or phone into your pocket and get to work, with no wires to annoy you. They also come with secure fit wings that ensure your earbuds fit snugly into your ears without budging.
The earbuds are available from Takelot and retail for roughly R559.
