In-shape for Summer with Your Phone

CardioTrainer is available for free download with in the Android Market

The creation of the iPhone App Store, the Android market, and the Palm Software Store have issued a wave of mobile applications for consumer's cell phones. With seemingly a mobile application for everything it is only right that developers began to pay it back and develop applications that offer more than farting noises or an inanimate crystal on your phone's screen. Increasing fitness trends and a constant demand to reach physical potential have led developers to create a new wave of health conscious applications that keep you on track where ever you bring your phone.

This means calorie counting during your business lunch, suggested workout routines at the gym, and a break down of what your commute means in exercise terms. IFitness, CalorieCounter, and Runkeeper are all great apps, but one of my favorites has been developed by WorkSmart Labs for the Android Market and is called CardioTrainer.

CardioTrainer is one of the best fitness tracking apps I have come across and lives up to its name as an actual "Trainer." As of today, CardioTrainer has launched its new Race Against Yourself feature. This additional bonus lets users race against past tracks through audio cues. This helps the runner/biker/hiker/skier guage and work to improve their performance hands free. CardioTrainer increases motivation and adds a new dimension to training. I found running to be a lot more exciting using CardioTrainer and it has helped increase my focus. My times have dropped and I am much more dedicated to my training schedule.

CardioTrainer is available for free download with in the Android Market. Download it. Give it a try. Take that next step you need to become serious about your goals and get in-shape.
