FitOrbit Hits the App Store

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.

I think that's a great idea. The information you need for meals and exercise will always be right with you.160GB iPod Classic
8GB 2G - Firmware 2.2.1 PWN'D
8GB 3G - Firmware 3.0 PWN'D
16GB 3G S - Firmware 3.0 Ra1n'n Purple
64GB iPad 3G - Spirit'd
32GB iPhone 4

I guess this is nice if you are a member.
I am spoiled and to get any information you have to pay for this service.
Eh, I have P90X videos ripped in mp4 format for my iPhone and the exercise tracker in xls (viewable and editable in Quickoffice) and the meal plans in pdf format (also viewable in Quickoffice). That works for me and I don't have to pay monthly for it.
I guess this is cheaper than an actual per hour trainer though and for those not motivated it might be useful.
I definitely would like to see more innovation with the apps in the app store and more useful everyday ones at that."To unpathed waters, undreamed shores." -- William Shakespeare

Sounds like a great app

I am looking forward to Vidaone's "MySportTraining" and "MyPersonalDiet" for iPhone. Back when I was a windows mobile user they had the best fitness software by far. It is just on the horizon, unless Apple has something to say about it, which they often do

Isn't it easier (and cheaper) just to do no exercise and not worry about what you eat?He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.
