While many of you are probably enjoying Holiday treats and drinks, the guys at Gym Technik have been working hard on their BlackBerry fitness app, to help give you a head start on your New Year's fitness resolution - Yes, one of those resolutions that always seem like a distant memory by March...
Gym Technik's NextGen app has been keeping non-Storm BlackBerry users in check, and today they announced the release of their NextGen app for the Storm. Unfortunately, the app doesn't seem to be OS5 compatible yet and the team is still working on releasing for Storm2. Storm2 and OS5 support seems to be set for late January. The NextGen app for the Storm comes bundled with the following features:
- Build workouts and schedule a routine on the NextGen calendar
- Start and track workouts (Regular workouts, Circuit workouts, and Cardio workouts)
- Enter and track body stats such as weight, and body size measurements
- Upload before/after photos of yourself from your BlackBerry
- Sync NextGen on your BlackBerry with your Online account
And to celebrate this launch, they're giving out a special one day promo of their premium service to all that upgrade today. Today only, they're giving away a 10% discount of their premium subscription with promocode holiday09. Just use this promocode upon checkout while upgrading your account in their store. A sweet deal for a running head start on your New Year's fitness resolutions.
So if this is the first time you've heard of Gym Technik, you can sign up for a free trial of the BlackBerry app. And if you do have an account, and were waiting for the Storm app, this is your chance to point your Storm browser to get.gymtechnik.com to download the app and give it a try. And finally for those of you running OS5 or a Storm 2, sign up online to get notified as soon as the app is released next January, while using their mobile web site to track and get motivated about your fitness.
