Fitness at your fingertips with ThinQ fitness app

Have you ever wanted a one-to-one yoga class outdoors instead of sharing a stuffy room in a gym or having to watch a DVD at home? Maybe you would just like to learn to dance, take up martial arts, or squeeze in some cardio training, in your own time, wherever you choose?

Online fitness video provider ThinQ Fitness (www.thinqfitness.com) has launched a brand new free App which will help those who want step-by-step fitness training take their favourite classes wherever and whenever they like. The App will allow users to stream hundreds of simple video fitness classes, which are currently available on the main website, from their iPhone and iPad.

From aerobics to belly dancing there are plenty of different workouts to try. There are even workouts that you can try at the gym. The app is free and you have access to a wide selection of videos but you can always upgrade to a ThinQ Fitness membership so that you can watch all the videos on the site for only £4.99 a month.

A qualified Personal Trainer takes you through each video step-by-step and gives you pointers on how to do the workout safely. You can also pick videos that suit the amount of time you have available, for example, if you are on your lunch break and only have time for a quick workout you can pick a 10 minute routine.

The App is simple to use – pause, rewind, fast forward all at the touch of a button. You won’t even need to bring a music player with you as each video session has music you’ll want to sing along to.

ThinQ Fitness App users can also browse all the latest health, fitness and nutrition articles straight from professional health and fitness experts using the ‘Lifestyle’ feature, and benefit from regular advice from personal trainers using the Blog feature.

3 of the best for all you gym bunnies out there!

Silva EX3 Pedometer

A fantastic, tiny pedometer from Silva, weighing only 20 grams, which can be positioned anywhere and still count steps correctly so we’re talking around your neck, on a key-ring, even in your pocket. The Silva EX3 pedometer has a one-week memory which helps you keep track of the week’s training. It also senses how it’s being held and adapts the display so you can see the figures easily.
So simple, just get up, pop it on and get moving. Every step counts!

Price £ 23.99

Polar Bike Mount

For all you super fit guys out there who own a heart monitor * you know who you are* then check out the new Polar Bike Mount. It’s suitable for securing all Polar heart rate monitors on the handle bars (except the M91/92ti). It’s attached and held securely to the handlebars by cable ties. The receiver is then fixed around the bike mount as if it were placed on your wrist.
Price £ 6.99

Skipping Rope Calorie Counter

I used to luv skipping at school, I’m a big girl now so no longer confined to the playground but still think skipping is a perfect way to keep fit. Calorie Jump not only counts the number of skips performed, but also calculates the number of calories used in each session. Whether forwards, backwards or criss-cross, Calorie Jump can count up to 9999 revolutions. The plastic twist-free cord is strong, lightweight and easy to turn (rope length can be adjusted according to height.) Don’t skip your fitness now kids!
