The Fitbit ONE ™ is a great tool for those that want to get fitter, healthier and more active.
In today's world we are becoming more inactive, which is leading to bad posture, increased back pain and poor health.
Back in Action recommends the Fitbit alongside other great products to keep your activity levels up throughout the day.
The Fitbit ONE ™ is not just a standard pedometer. If you want to turn fitness into a lifestyle, the Fitbit One ™ is for you.
For starters, it never rests. During the day, it tracks your movements, steps, distances, calories burned and stairs climbed. Come nightfall, it measures your sleep cycle, how often you wake up and even the quality of your sleep.
The Fitbit is designed to give real-time feedback, create realistic, achievable goals and encourage you to make simple and gradual changes to improve your activity and fitness.
Take the stairs instead of the elevator, use an ergonomic office chair to maintain movement while you're sitting, reduce your calorie intake, take a walk after lunch. Simple changes that combine to make a big difference to your lifestyle.
The information can then be wirelessly downloaded to your computer and with a free online tool from Fitbit.com, you can monitor your food intake, weight loss and and overall fitness. Over time you build up a continuous diary of your progress.
Something that the Fitbit offers that is unique among pedometers, is that it monitors your sleep. The number of hours you slept, how many times you woke up and the overall quality of your nights sleep. Just slip the Fitbit onto a wristband at night and it will monitor your sleep.
You may sleep just one third of the day, but a good night's sleep has the single biggest impact on the other two thirds.
Keeping an eye on good and bad nights sleep can help you to explain why you have good and bad days. Use this information to build up a routine that helps encourage better sleeping.
The key to health and fitness is always 'YOU' and motivation will always be a factor. The Fitbit helps overcome these psychological barriers. You and your friends can link accounts, motivate and challenge each other to go even further.
You also get badges and achievement from the Fitbit itself, if you've achieved a daily / weekly / lifetime achievement, it'll sing your praises... But you have to work for it.
You may want to incorporate the Fitbit in with your weekly exercise routine.
