Fitness is something that can be enjoyed by anyone and everyone. With all of the great new fitness gadgets coming out continually it only makes sense that geeks like to get fit too. After all, a healthy body means you have a healthy mind too.
For geeks that want to get fit, exercise is about more than sports. You want to make it something more fun, and something that fits in with your lifestyle. Here are some things that will help you get your geek on while staying fit.
Fitness trends abound in this time of tech genius. From the moment the Fitbit launched people were scrambling to continue coming up with new things. Wearable tech is the way to go, and you have many options when it comes to what you want that tech to do.
Carrying your smartphone or iPod with you is important too, so part of the wearable trends needs to be what you’re wearing, like shorts with the right materials and a pocket to hold tech that isn’t attached to you. Of course, there are even armbands made to hold your music devices close.
Nerdy Running Programs
Whether you’re walking, jogging or running, the nerd world has made it easy to motivate yourself. In fact, you can follow the footsteps of the hobbits and walk (or run) to Mordor. The point of this little mapping system is to motivate you to get up and move.
Sometimes you get glued to your computer games, your work, and your lego building and forget the importance of physical activity. Just remember, you have 458 miles to walk just to get to Rivendell!
Using Your Phone
The GPS on your phone is a great guidance and tracking system for your walks or your running. Use it to make sure you can get back home safe. Use it to map how long your trek was.
Smartphones are definitely a smart thing to have in your life. You can even download apps that will remind you when you haven’t worked out in awhile, let you track your workouts, and more.
Best Music For Fitness (and how to listen)
When it comes to workout music for a true nerd, not just any high-paced song will do. You need music that can motivate your nerdy side, like soundtracks from your favorite video games. Think about the songs that make you happy and make you smile, throw those on the list.
Think of the songs from your favorite TV shows, whether you’re a Veronica Mars nerd, a Flight of the Conchords fanatic, or you’d rather have some good old Nerfherder from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. You simply need enjoyable tunes that help put some pep in your step.
