Get Back in Shape in 2011

Well, I am one of those that is taking on their exercise and diet regimen in the new year. It's almost a cliche, I know. Probably the most popular of New Year's resolutions. That said, I am still taking it on. Knowing I need help, I have enlisted friends to hold me accountable, gone public with a blog and I bought Fitness HD for my iPad ($3.99).

This app is truely amazing. First off it looks great. Second it has a depth of content that I don't think I will ever get to the end of. It has a library of more than 700 exercises, including videos demonstrating how they are performed and calories burned. Then there is the database of more than 300,000 foods, so you never have to wonder how many calories or fat grams that bean burrito had. There is a place to input and track your measurements and a calendar to keep a diary of your training.

All in all Fitness HD is a tremendous companion and ally in your quest for that elusive body....um, you know what I mean.
