Winter will soon be behind us, and if you are thinking about “springing” into a fitness plan, check out MapMyFitness.com. This cool website sponsored by Humana, a health insurance company, has introduced yet another way to use technology to help you work toward your fitness and nutrition goals. The website can help you develop a fitness training plan, create training maps, develop challenges for yourself and monitor your results. By logging your physical activity workouts each day, it will help you to monitor your progress towards your goal.
You can also keep track of your daily food intake and learn more about how to make nutrition work for you. You can follow your progress on either of these programs by logging your information on-line or by downloading the free app on your iPhone, Android or Blackberry.
The downside to the site is pesky ads. If you are like me, you have learned to ignore most of the ads that pop up on-line. So, give it a try and let me know what you think of this resource.
