In the year 1999, I remember that I used to grab my Timex watch and use it whenever I had a race to run or even just for training in the gym or in the oval. Nowadays, with all the Smart Phones, applications have been made, even for fitness. My husband uses a Samsung Galaxy S and the fitness application that he has is Run Keeper.
He likes Run Keeper. It tracks his activities and the distance and speed of his run. My husband uses it only for running, but so far, it has kept him motivated to collect miles on his application. It also has a site where you can download your fitness activities and keep track of it. Although, at times, my husband tells me that it takes a long time for the GPS to connect.

I have a Nokia E71 and what I use is Endomondo. I downloaded it from the Ovi store of Nokia. What I like about it is that it is very easy to use. Just choose the type of activity that you will be doing, hit the start button, then it already reads your activity. It also has a map that traces the path where I run. I can also easily connect or download my activity to the Endomondo website. I have already made friends in the site and have joined challenges that help me remain active.

What I want to buy is the Pocket Yoga. I don’t have an application that i could use for yoga. In the meantime, what I use is Endomondo, but this application is really for fitness activities that require “travelling”. If you’re doing activities, like yoga, what you can do is just manually update your profile. I have heard that Pocket Yoga is a great application to use if you want to do yoga poses on your own. Although, feedback is that the voice instructions are quite fast, I know that I will not mind the challenge.
In the android market, this application just costs Php 128.
