Personal trainers can be expensive. So can gym memberships. But a new iPhone app helps folks with fitness sticker-shock still get the advice and encouragement they need from fitness experts without the hefty price tag.
The FitOrbit iPhone application has been rolled out in the app store. According to the announcement on Mobiletor.com:
The app provides one-to-one fitness training with a professional. Personal trainers with FitOrbit present daily monitoring and tracking, a support group for immediate motivation, grocery lists, recipes, meal preparations tips, local restaurant substitutions and comprehensive nutritional information inclusive of serving sizes. Further, the trainer also alters their clients’ meal and fitness plans according to their changing lifestyles via online discussions.
“As a trainer, I am very excited that my FitOrbit clients will now be able to access the daily workout and meal plans I give them right on their iPhones. Making healthy food choices and exercising right have never been more convenient or as accessible thanks to FitOrbit. The app itself is free too, and if you’re not a FitOrbit member yet, you can use the iPhone to register and even pick your trainer,” quoted Holly Perkins, a FitOrbit Trainer.
There seems to be a larger and growing push for more "meaningful apps" to make their way to our iPhones and iPods. If this latest offering is any indication, getting fit will be the hottest new trend in app development for the time being. And for now, FitOrbit arguably has the most potential of any fitness app rolled out thus far.
