Our 5 best reasons to use a fitness tracker

1. A clear goal becomes easier to achieve

Setting a clear goal is the key to progress. Just by establishing for yourself what you truly want, you’re half way there. A commonly used goal setting practise is called SMART goals and stands for Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant & Timely. A fitness tracker will do most of this for you when signing up.

2. Follow your progress

When making a lifestyle change, progress is one of the most motivating factors to keep you on track. But how do you know if you’re on the right path after 2 weeks? Consistently tracking your food, weight, speed or strength will give you a clear overview of how your performance has improved.

3. Learn about your personal health

Food and exercise impact the way we feel and perform – not only at the gym, but also at work, during social events or when you wake up in the morning. If you log and track activities and food, you’ll get to know yourself better by following habits that affect you the most.

4. Create good habits over time

When you track and follow your progress regularly, you’ll create a good habit of wanting to do more of whatever you’re working on. Scientists say it takes 66 days for a habit to become automatic, so by consistently tracking all good things you do for your health, you will not only see results today, but also doing future you a big favor.
