[prMac.com] San Jose, California - Viaden Mobile today presents Fitness HD for iPad 1.0, the app that takes full advantage of what this device has to offer in terms of screen format and picture quality, and cleverly uses its advantages to open up a whole new view of a fitness application.
The success of any app fully depends on its user-friendliness and ability to foresee the users' needs. The algorithm patented by Viaden Mobile allows the company to bring their boldest plans to life in a comprehensive and scientifically reliable manner. In order to ensure versatility and at the same time unfailing performance, the developers came up with 4 modes of workout creation. One of them lets users choose one of the ready-made fitness routines created by a professional coach and tailored to fit a wide variety of goals. There is a mode that can select a workout for the user based on their personal aims and parameters. Two other modes were designed to let fitness pros create an individual workout on their own.
Remembering that motivation is one of the essential success factors of any fitness routine, Viaden Mobile enables users to be in full charge of their progress and achievements. A bunch of special tools for tracking all kinds of data linked to one's fitness routine make it possible to stay in tune with the body changes and nutrition pattern. The body tracker builds graphs based on the entered info on one's body parameters so that it's easy to visualize the progress. It also shows the user's body mass index - BMI - that indicates if the user's current weight is normal for their height.
A proper fitness routine needs proper body fuel. This is why Fitness for iPad features the food tracker - an in-depth tool for nutrition pattern monitoring. It shows full nutrition info on the foods logged (including the amount of fats, carbohydrates, fiber, sodium etc - 9 positions in total) as well as the ratio of carbs, fats and protein in the user's daily menu.
Making this whole tracking process easier and more convenient, Viaden Mobile included broad databases of foods and activities in the app. Users just have to choose their food and activities and log them - the app will do the math.
The exercise base of Fitness for iPad boasts hundreds of exercises with and without equipment, including yoga poses and cardio exercises. For each exercise, there are text, photo, audio and video instructions. Users can log the history of the exercises they do for future reference and also add their own exercises with photos to the database.
In addition to all these handy features, Fitness for iPad gives users a chance to consult a fitness expert on any issues regarding healthy nutrition or fitness routine absolutely free of charge. A question can be sent right from the app.
"In Fitness for iPad we tried to incorporate everything a user might need for an all-inclusive fitness routine. What we give users is not just the ability to exercise, but a full view of their fitness progress and achievements because this is where true sense of accomplishment comes from," says Yuri Gurski, Viaden Mobile CEO.
