Start 2009 with a Wellness Program Using Your BlackBerry Smartphone

Taking care of your body allows you to work harder and enjoy your life, but you don’t have to hire a personal trainer to make sure you stay on top of your game. Turn your BlackBerry® smartphone into your own digital coach with these downloadable applications, some of which require a fee. They can help you monitor your exercise plans, wellness goals and sporting achievements without the added challenge of tracking appointments and workouts on your own.

Plan your route
AllSport GPS Recording the details of your workout can help you stick to your exercise regimen while viewing the results of your hard work. Use the AllSport GPS to monitor the distance you travel, the route you choose and the calories you burn. Download maps directly to your BlackBerry smartphone to plot the coordinates for your next outdoor trek.

Stay in shape
Ascendo Fitness Calculators Working out and eating right? Great! But are you really in shape? Ascendo Fitness Calculators will answer that question and more. It includes ten fitness ratios often used by health care professionals to determine whether you are physically fit. All take into account your height, weight and body type. You can even use the “FitCalc” to set goals and objectives for a diet and exercise plan - and then, measure your progress.

Lose weight
Sensei For Weight Loss Trying to lose a few pounds? Get the help of a weight loss coach with Sensei For Weight Loss, available for your BlackBerry smartphone. You tell Sensei what you want to eat and the activities you want – or don’t want – in your life. The application then develops a weight loss program that is tailored to you - a program you can use, wherever you are. Plus, Sensei provides timely advice and encouragement along the way.
