Our giveaway for the blackberry fitness app Gym Technik was a big hit. We originally offered up a 1-year subscription to one lucky member, but the guys at Gym Technik decided to throw in a few extra subscriptions since they were so impressed with the response. We have 2 winners of a 1-year premium account, and 1 winner of a 6-month subscription. As an added bonus, the first 10 users to sign up for a Gym Technik annual subscription can get 20% off using the code crackberryfeb (just ender the code when upgrading the account via gymtechnik.com/store). Hit the jump for the winners list and their entries. For more information visit gymtechnik.com or just point your BlackBerry browser to get.gymtechnik.com to download a free tria.
1) GPS for tracking runs outdoors (mileage)
2) Sync with Polar (and / or others) heart rate monitors
3) Tips which are triggered by plateaus in your work outs. Since the app can track your results, when performance decreases / levels off it should alert you, and prompt you to work harder / get back on track.
Winner 2 - 1-year premium subscription
Idea: Getting the app to connect to a local service listing like google maps does with GPS location. This way users could look up local gyms, parks, supplement stores or fitness equipment stores even if they're out of town AND opens the doorway for gym technik to add revenue through advertising / recommendations / reviews of these locations. Win-win.
Honorable Mention - Free 6 months of premium
Idea: How about the program gives you a time limit for each exercise and if you don't click complete before the time runs out it the program signals a drill sergeant tone that starts screaming at you through your phone.
