Activity Trackers Take The World By Storm

The activity tracker market is already huge and growing fast due to the phenomenal success rate in weight reduction and lifestyle change that you can obtain from using one.

Many people are unaware what exactly an activity tracker is and how it works. At it's most basic, it is a pedometer. However, they have moved on considerably from this and now have a range of features to enable the user to get fitter and lose weight.

Some of the more modern trackers not only measure activity, ie steps taken, miles/km covered, but also provide "coaching" using this data to improve fitness.

The idea is to compile a database measuring your calorie intake, this too can be controlled by offering dietry advice to reduce calories. Then, your activity is measured and a plan is put together by the coach/ advisor to gradually increase your activity therefore burning up the calories as well as making the user fitter.

Most trackers are a clip on device with the better one's being button sized. It is the tracker you forget you are wearing that has the most effect.

To follow your progress the more modern devices are able to upload your data to your personal account where you can get real time access via a number of Bluetooth devices such as iPhones, iPads etc.

The beauty of a tracker is the coaching that comes with it. Usually costing a few dollars per month, it is considerably cheaper than hiring a personal trainer.

Activity trackers are great for anyone seeking a lifestyle change. For anyone wanting to get fitter or lose weight they are terrific. They are especially effective for those who need to be encouraged and helped to maintain focus, something that is a problem for most of us.

They are also great fun to use, with the coaches providing fun tasks and activities that are specifically designed to burn up calories.

Cost: Generally they are incredible value with a top of the range tracker costing about $70 including 12 months coaching. Your tracker will come with various clip on attachments although the range of accessories available is huge depending on where you buy from. Compare this price with the cost of a gym membership or a personal trainer. It really is the future of individual training.

So, if you want to get fitter and lose weight it is possible to do it small steps at a time.
