[prMac.com] Boulder, Colorado - Ever find yourself getting bored in the gym? The mundane, monotonous toiling make it hard to complete a workout, let alone make it a routine? If so, you're not alone; less than 5% of adults in the US participate in the recommended 30 minutes of physical activity per day. FitTrip 1.0.3, a new fitness app by the team at Gusto Technologies, has vowed to flip that statistic on it's head; promising to help you make your workout the best part of your day.
The free app allows you bike the tour of France, hike the majestic mountains of Patagonia, and so much more. The app allows you to bio-interactively experience these treks all from the comfort of your home or gym. Simply select an adventure and you're off running in destinations worthy of a bucket list right from your treadmill. With a wide variety of locations and sports to choose from, you'll never get bored in the gym again. Imagine being able to visit the sandy beaches of Cozumel or the serene canyons of Zion National Park; with FitTrip, you'll be able to complete your bucket list over your lunch hour all in realistic, HD-quality video and feel good while doing it.
Put your heart into it and you'll really unleash the power of FitTrip. Connect a compatible heart rate monitor, like the Mio Alpha HR watch by Mio Global, and FitTrip taps into your heartbeat to predict exactly how fast you'd be going if you were there in person. Push yourself harder in the gym, go faster in your trek; it's that easy!
