Want to lose weight? Grab a couple apps

by Rob Lewis

If you have ever watched The Biggest Loser or Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition, then you know how emotional the reveal on the results show can be for the weight loser, their family, and the audience.

Vancouver's Gym Technik tells a similar weight-loss story on their blog this week of one of their users who used technology to transform his body and stay motivated to achieve a healthier lifestyle.

Following a September 2008 commitment to get in shape, Gavin Campbell got Gym Technik and began using technology to transform his body and stay motivated to achieve a healthier lifestyle.  Gavin pairs his iPhone with Gym Technik, Withings Wi-Fi Scale and Calorie Counter by FatSecret to help him track his progress.  Gym Technik lets him plan and track his workouts on his iPhone, Withings his weight and Calorie Counter his daily caloric intake.  Having recently logged his 1,027th workout in nearly three years, Gavin has lost 100 plus pounds and credits technology and dedication for helping him stay motivated. 

While Gavin's story isn't one of extreme weight-loss, it is impressive.

So maybe we don't need a personal trainer to keep dedicated to a fitness regime. Could a combination of iPhone apps be enough to keep you motivated?
