MINI ME PERSONAL TRAINER
I'm not endorsing this, but I just read about it in Time Magazine and wanted to share. Electronic Personal Trainers (EPT - no, not the home pregnancy test - puhleez). Remember when I wrote about the Playaway and other ways to pump up your regime? Well, this might be a good addition to the game for the walking techy out there. )f course, a techy probably already knows about it...
Here's a link to an article explaining more about how it works.
Apparently the Wii also has this component availabe for purchase.
This device is not designed just for walkers. It's more for the exercise gym type work out. But, I believe it might have value for some of us in that we can input our goals, speeds, variations - like walking fast for 2 minutes then slowing down with the timing for that, warm up and cool downs. It'll whisper that stuff into our ears or display it on a tiny screen.
What will they think of next? Personally, I prefer to keep things as low-tech as possible. But, there are those among us who would enjoy using such a device and many more who would likely benefit from it.
*************************** Remember my 100% GUARANTEE. Should you decide to stop walking and resume your old habits, I personally guarantee that you'll get back 100% of your former life - your pain, your lifestyle, your attitude.
