New Apps, Digital Fitness Devices Keep Track Of Your Workout

This free iPhone app from Puma helps track your workout, crunching the data into an overall score. The app also helps you figure out conditions that affect your workout, and the scoring system can be motivating.

(The conventional wisdom is that running in the same shoes beyond 400 or 500 miles can lead to injuries from shoe wear, so knowing the mileage on them is a good idea). Bluetooth-enabled, Milestone stores 20 hours of data covering mileage, pace, cadence, distance, number of runs, steps per minutes and time, which can be loaded onto your computer via USB. Week and month views let you track long-term trends. Also, you can input your blood type and medical data, which is useful for emergency responders. Note: In June, a new app will allow the device to track your stance time and whether you’re landing on your heel or your toe.

Over a 10-year period, people who did yoga lost five pounds. Those who didn’t do yoga gained an average of 14 pounds during that same period. Cathe has created a yoga fitness DVD that helps you to get those same weight loss wins: ” Cathe Friedrich’s Low Impact Series: Yoga Relax” (click for details ).
