After coming back from a recent music festival and wearing a Fitbit for for the entire weekend, I was astonished to see that I had walked close to 18 miles in 1 day! 

With rising levels of obesity in the young and old, from time to time we all need a push to get on the treadmill or walk further instead of using a car or public transport.  I for one am more driven when I can see my progress, whether from the Fitbit or a Smart Phone App, they're great for tracking times and also beating previous records. 

I would recommend using an app or Fitbit if you are struggling to find the motivation to get your running shoes on. 

I believe we will see more and more gadgets over the coming months and year to help with our fitness and make it more fun/challenging. 

The future of fitness is electronic.
