From Couch Potato to Spartan with Digifit
Shawn has been working out with Digifit Ambassador and Spinning Instructor Giovanni Masi for 2 years now. Shawn attends Giovanni’s weekly Saturday Boot camp at the South Dade YMCA Family center and lifts weights with a friend. Occasionally, he fits in cardio cardio exercise in here and there to supplement his workouts.
Just over a year ago, Shawn decided to do personal training with Giovanni 2x a week. In this time, Shawn has made some wonderful changes. He is now down 3 pants sizes and had to purchase a new business wardrobe and formal wear!
When Shawn started to run, he was using a Timex Ironman GPR Hear rate Monitor. Two months ago, Shawn ditched the watch and instead began tracking heart rate using Digifit on his iPhone.
So far Shawn has been thrilled with Digifit:
“I am old, fat and slow. I need to get Digifit to tell me when I’ve had too many Capt’n Morgans and diet cocktails!
I like the real time reporting during the workout so I have a double check if I am really pushing myself or not. I have this tool with me during personal training with Giovanni, while taking his HIIT/TABATA class or out for my daily runs.
The results and reporting is a nice feature, whether you are running and want mile by mile split times, heart rate, or just in the gym and want to see how many calories you burned. I don’t workout without Digifit! Digifit makes it easy to share workouts with Giovanni for analysis or tease my friends on Facebook.”
Shawn competed this past weekend in the Florida Spartan Race, placing 47 out of 290 racers in his age division! It’s the furthest Shawn has run/raced at just over 9 miles and 22 obstacles during the challenge.
