Gym Technik for BlackBerry

The team over at Gym Technik, makers of the NextGen fitness app for the BlackBerry and winners of the CB Awards '09 for best Health/Fitness App, have just informed me about an upgrade they performed over the weekend. The NextGen app for the BlackBerry is now compatible with OS 5! I can't wait to load this bad boy on my Storm 2, and I've been hearing it runs quite smooth on the 9700.

For those of you who haven't tried out Gym Technik yet, you can download the app by pointing your BlackBerry browser to

Standard features of the NextGen Fitness app for the BlackBerry include:

  • Visual and descriptive workout guidance
  • Workout and body stats tracking
  • Routine scheduling
  • Before/After photo uploads
  • Sync capabilities to safely back up your data online
  • Offline access with or without cell coverage for those basement gym rats

Contest and Giveaway: And they've also informed me that they are giving away 100 premium subscription discounts this week. The first 100 sign ups using offercode feb10upgrade at the Store will get 10% off their premium subscription.

And second - They've asked the CB community to dream up the most wildest craziest feature that you would like to see on the Gym Technik app. The craziest idea will be selected for a free year of premium! So come on... Rise to this... Drop your idea in the comments. First to say it and have it be the one that gets picked by Gym Technik as best wins (contest ends this Sunday at Midnight PST). Let's see what the CB community has got!
