5 Simple Ways To Get In Shape For The Summer Season

Already got your fitness goals for summer? We found 5 Simple ways to get in shape with your smartphone!

Who couldn’t use a bit more exercise in his or her life? Unless you’re a true fitness enthusiast though, actually working out and staying healthy can often take a bit of help and motivation. Even having those New Year’s resolution goals aren’t keeping you motivated either. It’s all too easy to find an excuse to skip going the gym. Let’s be honest here. After a long day at work, would you rather drive to the gym and exercise, or sit on the couch, watch a few flicks and munch on a tasty snack? Here at Tekoia, we like to think of a third option: get fit at home. With your mobile phone and apps like SURE Universal remote at your side, working out and staying healthy can actually be fun! Here are 5 ways your smartphone can make home fitness a bit more exciting.

1. Play Workout Videos

Maybe you’ve just got your hands on the latest Beachbody workout video, or maybe you’ve decided to grab your old P90X DVD that’s been collecting dust for a few years now. Either way, the SURE Universal has got your back. Pop in the DVD, head over to your workout mat and pull out your smartphone to control your DVD player. You won’t waste 10 minutes trying to find the remote – time you should be using to get your workout on! If you’re not into DVDs, there are also lots of high-quality workout videos available on YouTube that you can stream.

2. Go For an Evening Run or Walk with Runkeeper

Rather than running on a treadmill or cycling on a stationary bike at the gym, why not head outside and take a brisk walk or jog around your neighborhood? The fresh air will help rejuvenate your tired body, and who knows, you might even run into an old friend or make new ones. Before you head out, be sure to download the popular Runkeeper app, and bring along your smartphone so you’ll be able to track your progress, set goals, and more. And with Runkeeper’s Spotify integration, you can listen to your favorite tunes while you discover new running trails and stay motivated. Run Keeper App to get in shape for the summer

3. Control Your Fans and A/C While You Get in Shape

You don’t always have to be gasping for air or sweating buckets for a workout to be beneficial – yoga and pilates are two popular examples of less strenuous forms of exercise. But that doesn’t mean you won’t work up a little sweat. What do you do when you finally get into the perfect yoga pose, but need to cool off? You grab your smartphone and use the SURE Universal to either turn on your fan that’s plugged into a smart outlet, or crank up the air conditioner. air conditioner remote

4. Watch Your Calories with MyFitnessPal
