There’s a weird stereotype that technology and fitness somehow don’t go together. People have the image of the tech nerd, hunched over in the dark, muscles wasting away as they lose themselves in the digital world. Of course, anyone who lives in the real world knows this is totally ridiculous. Not only is it possibly to love your tech and keep fit at the same time, but a lot of the time these two things can complement each other brilliantly. Modern technology means that it’s actually never been easier to stay in shape and have fun doing it. With that in mind, here are a few ways that technology can help you stay in shape.

Golf Simulators

Golf is a sport that is not only fun and mentally stimulating but is a really great workout at well, combining cardio, strength, and balance training. The problem is that not all of us have the time to hop in the car and drive to the course multiple times a week. Not to mention the trouble with trying to hit the green during awful weather conditions. But that’s where simulators come in. They can help you keep your swing up to snuff by letting you practice your technique from the comfort of your own home. These days simulators are more accurate than ever, able to track your swing and help you improve by providing accurate measurements of strength and techniques. Of course, not all simulators are equal. Click here to find out which one is right for your needs.

Tracking Apps

One of the most discouraging parts of exercising and keeping fit is that it can often be pretty difficult to measure your progress. There are few things more frustrating that working out for extended periods of time only be unable to actually see any real difference when you look in the mirror. Fortunately, there are now devices and apps which help you track your workouts very carefully. They not only let you know how much exercise you’ve been doing but will also tell you how many calories you’ve burned. Apps like these help you to set clear, achievable goals which can make it that much easier to fight through the periods of frustration that can come when exercise starts to get seriously tough. You’ll be amazed at just how much of difference tracking your workout can make.

Slendertone Abs

You might have seen adverts for this product around and assumed that it’s some sort of cheap con, but the science behind it is actually pretty sound. Put simply; the slendertone contains electrodes that cause your muscles to tense and relax, helping to tighten them significantly within four weeks. Of course, any layers of fat that are on top of those underlying muscles aren’t just going to disappear; you’ll need to put in the work to shift those. But the slendertone is an excellent way to keep those muscles strong which will not only improve the visible results of your workout but will strengthen your core and improve your workouts overall.
