After Mobile Nations Fitness Month What Comes Next?

Fitness Year
By Jared DiPane on 6 Mar 2012 09:31 pm EST

Well, we made it through Mobile Nations Fitness Month in February; it is time to get back to that couch with a tub of ice cream, right? Well -- not so much, no. Just because the official Fitness Month has come to an end that doesn't mean that it is time to ditch the new habits and revert to the old ones. If you were anything like me and had a successful month of February, odds are that you want to continue the positive momentum. The reality, however, is that you may need a little bit of help to keep you going.

Don't worry, I am right there with you. While 20 pounds may be a good amount to have lost, there is still quite a bit left to go -- so the journey continues. Did you know there are a bunch of great BlackBerry applications and accessories that are available that can help you along with your journey? While we did cover a good deal of information during February, there is still a ton more to go.

With the official Fitness Month behind us, I realize that many of the CrackBerry faithful are looking for more motivation. How about instead of being fit for just one month we go for the whole year -- let's make 2012 a year of fitness. What do you think? Will you join me for the rest of 2012 and beyond as we continue to get healthier, shed the pounds and make our lives that much better? My motivation you ask? Well, I don't want to be that dad who can't keep up with his five year old, nor do I want to be a fatty in my wedding pictures that will be taking place in June. What is your motivation?

Hit the forums and let us know how you plan to make 2012 the Year of Fitness.

After Mobile Nations Fitness Month What Comes Next?


I'm in, too. Motivation? Avoiding the diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease that is in my family history. Oh, and looking good in jeans, too. :-)

Sounds like a great idea. I kept a close eye for tools I thought would be useful throughout February and was pretty happy with a few of them. The best one for my fiance and I has been the myfitnesspal app. Being able to easily see our calorie count for the day (amongst other things) has been an immense and enlightening help that goes hand-in-hand with actually burning some calories. So, if you have any more idea's that are even remotely as useful as that app then bring it on!

I did this a couple of years ago - in 2010 I lost 95 pounds and have kept all of them off.

One of the apps not mentioned is the one I've used since April of 2010 - roadrunnergps, with their associated site Track all your running, walking, skiing, biking, etc. Its a fantastic application.
