Health & Fitness Month at Mobile Nations!

Why is February fitness month at Mobile Nations? The honest answer is because when the Mobile Nations crew got together in Las Vegas in early January for CES 2012, too many of us remembered each other looking thinner at CES 2011. It turns out running the world's leading mobile-dedicated communities isn't always good for the health. Long days at the computer and late nights powered by pizza and Red Bull eventually take a toll. We made a pledge leaving Vegas to be healthier and more fit going forward. And while our goal is to be healthy and fit for LIFE, we figured there would be no better way to kick get started on that ongoing mission than by dedicating a month to exploring Health & Fitness on our sites.

For some of you, the concept of using technology -- phones, tablets, WiFi-connected scales, wearable GPS trackers, etc. -- as an aid to better your health and fitness levels may be new. For others, you may have clicked into the Health & Wellness category in App World and downloaded an app or two and left it at that. And we're sure a few of you health fiends out there are total gurus at this stuff. Regardless of the category you fall into, we're going to make sure there's something for everyone this month as we use ourselves as test subjects and do the dirty work to explore all that is mobile tech and health and fitness related. We'll be bringing our reviews, editorials and polls here to the blogs, and in the CrackBerry forums we'll get some action happening for those of you want to take the plunge and get in shape with us (there'll even be some sweet prizes to be won for those set some goals and see them through).

If you own other devices outside of BlackBerry, our sister sites will tackling things from the perspective of their platforms, so you'll also want to be tuning into AndroidCentral, iMore, WPCentral and webOS Nation. Stay tuned for more, and in the meantime let us know in the comments if there's anything specific you want us to check out. You know we'll do it!
