Runmeter – uses iPhone’s GPS to track info about various aerobic exercises; can track your pace, distance & calories burned while running, biking, swimming, walking, hiking, skating, or skiing; can set up audio prompts that will play as you exercise; can set up email notifications to email out a map of your location at certain time or distance intervals, recipients will receive a link to a google map that shows where you are, which is great for peace of mind
Omron HJ-112 pedometer - wear it on your belt, carry it in your pocket, clip it to your bra, or wear it anywhere it is perpendicular to the ground; counts steps and calculates distance and calories burned; tracks aerobic steps separately when walking or jogging more than 60 steps per minute or more than 10 minutes continuously; 7-day memory – take 10,000 steps/day!
*If you are exercising with your child, don’t forget to bring some of their favorite toys or books. If you are going for a really long walk or run, we recommend one or two toys from the dollar store – new toys go a long way with your child while you go a long way on your feet!
** If you happen to get deodorant marks on your exercise bra or tank (is it possible to avoid?!?), wipe away with denim. We don't know why, but IT REALLY WORKS!
