    Absolute Fitness.



    One of my favorite things to do is to workout. I love staying in shape and using technology to do it. Before the iPhone, there were various Palm and WM apps that I would use. The process became very tedious. Sometimes the device would reset, the programs were incomplete at times and so on.

    I stared using the iPhone and I went back to my notebook and a pencil at the gym, because there were no apps. That is until the 2.0 software and the AppStore came out.

    The first app I tried was Fit 1.0. I can't even begin to explain how incomplete this app is. I began another search. I found Absolute Fitness.

    This App is perfect.

    SET UP

    First off. I have all of my workout/exersise apps in one row as you can see. This keeps everything organized and I am able to find my apps quick and easy.


    During the set up of this app, you are first asked about your sex, DOB, Activity level, Height, Weight messurment system, Weight goal, target weight, Daily value caluclation and Daily Value Reduction %. All of these settings help set up this app so that it can effectly help you accomplish your goals of loosing weight, gaining weight or staying the same.


    The next step, is this app will give you a video tour of how to best use Absolute Fitness. The video loaded very fast and was very informative. There is also a User Guide that is avalible to look at too.


    DIARY

    The diary keeps track of all your food and exersize. In the diary, you can add items according to the time the were eaten, you can modify the quanity of food you eat, you can choose food as a fovorite so that you can save it for the next day. I love this feature. Especially sine I have Starbucks, coffee with 4 pumps of toffee nut with room for cream, gronola and yogurt or scrabled eggs and wheat toast every morning. I also do a 45 min spin class and run 4 miles a day. In this way, I don't have to select the foods through the database each time. I just go to the favorites and select the item. It makes it real quick to add my daily foods and exersizes.


    The food selection is vast and there is everything in the database from Water to twizzlers, from Chicken to Herring. The exsersizing selection too is complete. There are a lot of exsersizes as well. With both food and exersizing I am able to add custom meals and exersizes that are not part of the the database. I can add these items to my favorites to be used on a regualar basis.

    Results

    The best part of this app is that you can go back and see you progress, or lack there off. Absolute Fitness lets you see your Calorie intake, Cholesterol, Sodium, Potassium, protein, Total Carbs, Sat fat etc....

    Hands down this is the best ftiness app and I have found and I recommend it. I have lost 5lb by keeping track of everything an I don't know where I'd be without it.

    Thanks for reading

    For food, does it track the vitamin section of the food labels? (Vitamin A, C, Calcium, and Iron) They are not shown in any of the screen grabs that I've seen so far.
