Four Great Online Fitness Tools

Richard Shannon provides an overview of the four best online fitness tools.

If you are like many people, then your New Year's resolutions may be starting to go by the wayside as we move further on into the new year. So those trips to the gym may be happening less and less often, and maybe your takeaway consumptions are starting to go up again. So here, to breathe some new life into your fitness regime, are five great online tools to measure your efforts and motivate you to even greater heights.

Fit Bit

Fit Bit is a fitness system that works with a downloadable app to help you do everything from set yourself specific exercise goals to log the nutritional value of the food you eat. It also maps your progress, so you can see yourself getting fitter. There is also a wide range of accessories available, including wearable technology that can connect wirelessly with smartphones and tablets to transmit your exercise data.

Map My Run

If running or cycling is part of your exercise plan, then Map My Run can take the guesswork out of how far you go on each outing. Using simple controls, you can set a route and see how far it is in either miles or kilometres, and it also tells you how high you have climbed over the run. Once you have registered, you can also save your routes and see ones that other people in your area have saved too.

Ladbrokes Casino Online Roulette Wheel

Varying your exercise regime is essential if you want to achieve real results, and Ladbrokes have come up with a fun solution that leaves your day's activity to chance. Each day gives the roulette wheel a spin, and it will set you a target within a range set by you. It is an excellent choice if you want to include some spontaneity into your regime.


If you want a personal trainer, but it is beyond your fitness budget, then this could be the ideal solution. iBodz is an online personal training system that lets you register your goals, whether they are to lose weight, build muscle or increase stamina. You can also specify what fitness equipment you can use, for example, if you have got a treadmill at home or are a member of a gym, and iBodz will devise a personalised fitness program for you. And, best of all, the service is free.
