Website Train Hero Tracks Your Weight-Loss and Fitness Progress

Website of the Day: Train Hero

It's an awesome time in my world when I can blend my love for tech with my will to get into shape. . . as I'm doing with my Wii Fit Fitness Challenge. An unexpected benefit to updating you on my progress has been the encouragement: Your comments, both about my work and your own Wii Fit workouts at home, are motivating me and keeping me inspired!

And because I can never have too much tech help, I signed up for Train Hero— a website and social network devoted to helping you track your fitness goals and successes. It provides a place to not only electronically record your workouts, diet, and weight, but also it provides an atmosphere of motivation as well. The fact that it tells you the calories burned from each activity is a bonus!

This has got to be one of the best applications for a social network I can think of, for a time when you can use as much encouragement from people (especially totally objective folks) as you can get — like I've learned with you guys. So thanks!

I always wear my Polar Heart Rate watch and take a note of how many calories I actually burn per exercise plus you can program it to your height and weight so it gives you accurate calculations!
