Fitbook Review and Giveaway

Through my relationship with Fit Approach as a Sweat Pink Ambassador, I was recently given the opportunity to review a newly available website to log your food intake, exercise, and goals!

Here is the headline of the Press Release for the Fitbook, which was just recently released here in the US!
Fitbook Launches in U.S. to Help Consumers
Achieve New Year's Resolutions



Now, I have been a tracker of these things via MyFitnessPal and SparkPeople for years, but because I am not strictly looking to lose weight, I have always felt like something was missing for me on those virtual platforms. They seem to be focused on those who want to lose, rather than those who want to focus on eating more cleanly or getting stronger. Since I am in that boat, I thought that maybe having the goals feature would help me with that.
There are many pre-programmed goals that you can select, and then select the frequency that you would like to use to accomplish them. This encourages setting small weekly goals so you can see your progress and continue to develop. I added two myself, to run 4x per week (as my plan states) and to take a multivitamin every day. As a premium member, you are also able to create your OWN goals rather than just using the pre-programmed ones.

There is obviously a place to track your diet. There are tons of foods out there already in their database. You can search by manufacturer (read: Quaker) as well as item (Oatmeal) and browse to make sure that you are getting the best thing.
It automatically breaks down your proteins, carbs and fat, and there are options to add tracking of other nutrients as well. I am planning on adding "sugar" to mine. That is definitely the big thing that I need to work on lessening in my diet!

The exercise module is also straightforward. You can search by equipment (treadmill), whether you are working inside or outside (indoors), or by activity (run).
As a premium member, you would also have access to workout plans that are available, including videos demonstrating various exercises to ensure you are using correct form, etc.

There is also an iphone app which is FREE and it syncs right up with the desktop version.

Have I sold you on this product? I have been given the chance to give away a 6 month premium membership to fitbook to one of my readers! Are you interested?
