Fitness Month: How do you work out?

Fitness Month: How do you work out?
By DJ Reyes on 8 Feb 2013 02:00 pm EST

If you didn't know already, February is Health and Fitness Month here on CrackBerry and Mobile Nations. We've been running daily contests, and a weekly one still going on. We've got folk in the forums talking about what workout or exercise they've been doing but today we'll take to the blogs are ask you: How Do You Workout?

Growing up I was always quite sporty. I loved taking part in lots of different kinds of sports and took a few Karate classes too. Then when I hit 21, I don't know what change but I just didn't do much sport anymore. Now that I'm in my 30s, I feel like I want to get back into getting active. For the past four and half years I've been doing Taekwon-Do, taking classes 2-3 times a week. That was pretty much it. Then last year, as a family we took things further and I started running more and general doing more workouts than just the Taekwon-Do. In the long run it even helped me in Taekwon-Do as I felt a lot stronger and could with stand sparring a lot more than I could before. The photo you see above is from the ITF Taekwon-Do Scottish Championships 2012.

I use my BlackBerry and PlayBook for working out too. Most recently finding the Max Capacity Traning app very useful since it doesn't require you to use any equipment. Great for travellers and those who like to workout in the comfort of their own home.

So, what about it CrackBerry Nation. How do you workout? What are your favourite activities? Hit up the comments with your workouts and activities. Don't forget week one contest is still open to tell us how you use your BlackBerry or PlayBook to workout.

Fitness Month: How do you work out?


I have been using Endomondo to track my runs on my BB7 Torch 9810. That doesn't seem to be available on BB10 unfortunately. I don't have a BB10 phone yet, but I hope it will be available when I get mine.

Mostly weights and some cardio. Every few weeks I switch up the lifting routine. For straight cardio I like cycling the best.

I really wish that Strava would make a BlackBerry app. It's a great social app that lets you create cycling segments on the road and you can compete to be the fastest on any segment you happen to ride over.

I run and I practice martial arts (Taekwondo) twice a week. Testing for blackbelt this weekend. Sure could use a free bb z10 to go with my new black belt.......

Boxing 3 times a week and going to the gym 1 or 2 times a week.
I aknowledge what samuelwhatshisface said above. Hard work 2 times a week (in the weekends because I'm a student)
When I can't attend to a boxing class, can't go to the gym or don't have to work... Jogging instead :D
So actually doing exercise every day :D
Sorry to say but I don't use my phone or Playbook for doing exercise.

I've been pushing weights for years averaging about 4 days a week but I've recently started Crossfit and wow what a shock to the system.

On my fourth week of circuit, mma, boxing, muay thai, kick boxing... Trying to loose weight in a major way.

Getting strict with what i eat as well.

The my fitness pal food tracker needs to come to blackberry!! Only reason I'm keeping my android alongside my z10 is for my fitness pal! Have been tracking my food for almost a full year now and can't live without that app so hopefully an app is on its way!!

3-4 times a week depending on the goal for the next 6-8 weeks. It always includes some heavy resistance as it's the best way to stay fit or lose fat.
In between I do other activities for mobility or just fun sports. Running long distance is just the best way to ruin joints, so I just avoid it. HIIT is just a more efficient way of training.
Oh, and I cycle carbs. Best way to eat, ever. Never frustrated :)


Gym 6 days a week, dance class twice a week and workout every night before i sleep. rest is for the weak, "aint nobody got time for that" ^_^ now ...wheres my z10 please!!!
