I am a self described “fitness freak”, which is why I decided to start this blog. I needed a place where I can share my experiences going through the various training routines, along with the cool new fitness gadgets I love to try out. If you love strength training and other types of workout plans, and are always looking for new ways to push your limits then hopefully you will enjoy this blog as much as I’m going to like writing it. For those of you who might be new to fitness hopefully reading my posts will help you stay motivated and excited.
Over the years I’ve learned that not all exercise plans are the same, and you can get the same results using different programs. Since I like to concentrate on fight training, I’ve found that workouts that focus on strength and building muscle typically give me the best results. Lately though I’ve discovered that certain martial classes can also benefit me, and make me a better fighter in the ring. One new training routine that I have recently started is Muay Thai, and I love working out with an angled heavy punching bag. I can easily work on hits, kicks and combination moves with this one piece of equipment. I’ll be sharing more of my training experiences with you in future blog posts.
Since I love trying out the new fitness gadgets, this blog is the perfect place for me to share them with you. I should probably warn you that I am willing to try almost anything, if it will get me results. One gadget that I recently tried was a water bottle that came with an app. Called the Hidrate Spark, this bottle actually tracks how much water you drink. Staying hydrated is important, especially for your health, but even as “gadget crazy” as I claim to be I’m not sure that I need a water bottle to tell me when I am thirsty.
On the other hand I can’t imagine getting through my workouts without my Fitbit and wireless earbuds. I’ve found that even the hardest strength training workout is bearable when there is music playing. Since the earbuds are wireless I also don’t have to worry about getting tangled in a cord. As for my activity tracker, I simply can’t say enough about it. It tracks everything from my heart rate to steps taken during the day, I can also watch my progress so I know exactly where I need to improve.
These are just a couple of the training routines and fitness gadgets I’ll be writing about, and I look forward to reading about your own experiences.
