With exercising and eating properly becoming more important than ever, a great way to track your progress is to use an online diary such as Gyminee.com. The site is free to join and provides a wealth of information to help you achieve your diet and exercise goals.
One of my favorite parts of the site is the workout programs and exercise instructions. By entering information about yourself, Gyminee helps you to create cardio and weight training workout routines to achieve individualized results. If you do not want to spend time to create your own routine, you can use other routines that users have shared. Gyminee’s library has tons of different exercises. Everything I could think of was included. A great feature is that they have video showing you how to do each exercise properly to maximize results and minimize injuries.
The site allows you to track your exercising such as the sets, reps, weights, distance, heart rate, and more. I find it very quick and easy to enter this information after my workout because there aren’t a lot of complicated options. Gyminee even provides graphs for you to look at to see your progress.
Another of Gyminee’s major features is its online food diary. I used to keep a paper diary but found that I am much more likely to keep it up to date on the computer. The database has 67,000+ foods so almost everything you can eat is included and if it’s not you can add your own. The nutrition labels for the foods you eat can be viewed on the website. The site tracks your intake of calories, fat, carbs, protein, and other things to help you manage your goals.
A neat feature that many similar websites do not have is GymBuddies. You can have an online partner who will support you when you are doing well and provide support when you have having trouble. There are also fitness groups for all different kinds of activities where you can connect with other people who share your goals.
There are a variety of friendly fitness and weight loss challenges where you can compete against other users. I find this really keeps my motivation level high because I like watching my name moving up the rankings.
I have been using Gyminee for a couple months now and have found that it really helps me track my progress. I am much more likely to watch what I eat if I know I will be recording it later. The competition and fitness companions motivate me to exercise even on days when I do not feel like it. I recommend this website as a valuable tool for anyone who wants to take better care of their health.
