Digital technology is everywhere. From laptops, to tablets, to smartphones, very few of us get too far from the digital world. Even our fitness has gone digital. More than ever Americans are using online and application platforms to help them with their daily health regimens. DailyBurn recognizes this trend and is introducing a new daily fitness tracking system that has more features than any other format previous.
DailyBurn is a leading online fitness source. DailyBurn is also responsible for the popular apps DailyBurn Tracker, FoodScanner, MealSnap and Push-Up Wars. Their newest launch is the IntelliBurn technology. This technology is a complex algorithm that fine-tunes a fitness program to a user’s optimum performance and schedule by tracking and analyzing a multitude of factors, including, but not limited to, which trainers elicit the best personal performance, which workouts the user most enjoyed, time lapse between workouts and muscle groups recently trained.

Some days I feel really lucky to live in the day and age we do. Can you image trying to figure out how many calories are in your lunch or keep yourself entertained while running without modern technology?
I love the fact that I can check out nutritional information online before heading out for a meal or go to YouTube for a quick and easy demo of a new exercise. Technology certainly makes the journey to health and fitness a lot easier.
Of course the problem is deciding which technology to use. There are almost as many apps and online fitness tools as there are diets. You could spend hours exploring each and every one, trying to decide which one has the features you need. Or you could get so overwhelmed with choices that you don’t do anything at all.
If you struggle with fitting a good night’s sleep into your healthy living routine, you’re probably not the only one. Daily Burn, Inc., a leading online health and fitness solution and Zeo Inc., creators of the Zeo Personal Sleep Coach, recently announced the integration of sleep quality tracking into the body metrics system on the DailyBurn website.
The integration brings a training sophistication used by elite athletes to DailyBurn users to maximize their fitness. By monitoring quality of sleep, users can see its direct correlation on the ability to lose weight and dramatically improve athletic performance. Importantly, some of the world’s top athletes, like the Team RadioShack cycling team, use Zeo to monitor their restorative sleep —a critical training element that could mean the difference between a victory and a heartbreaking loss.
If you’re like me, and sit at a desk for the majority of each day, chances are it can be challenging to squeeze in enough exercise to keep you feeling energetic and active. In fact, it has been reported that people who have desk jobs are more prone to weight gain than those who move throughout the day.
Before you blame a looming deadline for the extra pounds you’ve packed on recently, think about how you can use technology to help you reach your weight loss goals. Obviously, you haven’t overlooked DietsInReview as a great resource for everything health, fitness, nutrition and weight loss, but there are a number of websites out there that offer helpful trackers and calculators meant to help you achieve your fitness and diet goals with only a few clicks of the mouse.
