I'm an Apple AND Google enthusiast, English & AVID teacher, marathoner, Dodger fan, Starbucks groupie, bookworm, and total tech addict (allow me any more devices and I just might need therapy). To summarize: I'm a highly caffeinated, text-absorbing, grammar correcting, PR setting baseball fan who is extremely attached to any internet-capable device at hand. Cheers!

2013-wrapp-up-header

Twas the week before New Year’s and all through the land, no humans were eager for the diet they planned (Deep sigh). It’s the same story every year: not long after the ball drops in Times Square and the champagne runs out, people all over the world face the dreaded New Year’s Resolution. After all the eggnog, fudge, and candy canes, it’s no surprise that losing weight and getting fit tops the list. And these days there are a plethora of digital goodies out there making anyone’s quest for fitness that much easier. Many of these apps even throw the motivation and inspiration in for free. In other words, you’re running out of excuses. You can thank me later.

So, Happy New Year! Here are some resolutions to those resolution blues.

Workout (7 Minute Body Fitness Exercise)

7 minute workout 17 minute workout 2No time or money to join a gym? This app’s for you. Choose “Matt” (McConaughey-like), “Arnold” (Schwarzeneggerish), or “Kate” as your trainer and off you go! It’s just a 7 minute workout – 30 seconds for each exercise, with 10 seconds to transition. Warm up with jumping jacks, followed by the wall sit, some push-ups, abdominal crunches, and so on. The 8-bit trainer graphic demonstrates each move to some pretty funky music (fortunately, with one simple tap the music goes away). Bonus – the app will even log workouts to your calendar. And if 7 minutes just isn’t enough, hit repeat and do it again!
