I'm not a big fan of working out. One thing that can motivate me though, is having proof of how hard I've exercised.

That's why I love Scosche's RHYTHM ($79.99). It's a Bluetooth armband heart rate monitor for women that attaches to your forearm. I wore it during a workout and hardly noticed it was there.

Bring Your Outdoor Workout Inside With FitTrip App

When I take my mountain bike out on the trails, besides getting a good workout, it relaxes me. For me it's a mindful experience being out in nature with only me, the bike, and the trail.

However, because I live in Colorado, when the snow starts falling my bike finds residence in my garage until the sun starts shining again, I can shed my North Face coat, and the trails start drying out.

During the winter, I usually find myself hanging out on the couch instead of getting the exercise I need. I absolutely hate going to the gym. 

So, that's why I was happy to hear about a fellow Colorado resident who developed an app designed to quiet the mind and make working out at the gym like being outdoors.
