You may remember when I posted this picture on instagram a few weeks after an intense workout with Tracy Anderson. That’s right, the Tracy Anderson whose clientele base includes the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow and Madonna. A huge thanks goes out to team Telus for inviting me to their private workout session with Tracy to launch the amazing new Samsung GALAXY S5 phone and Gear Fit watch.
As you can imagine, a fitness powerhouse like Tracy needs smart technology that works for her business, and lifestyle. Not to mention that can keep up with it! During our session Tracy revealed that she is a huge fan of using technology with fitness. Why? Because it can help you improve your workouts and track progress. Not just that, but the new Gear Fit watch can help you stay on top of your texts, emails and calls, while working out, without having to be distracted by your phone. During our class Tracy squealed about how much she genuinely loved wearing her Gear Fit; the proof was when she was notified of the receipt of an important email she was waiting on, but didn’t have to stop the class to check her phone, or answer the email on the spot. Her mind was able to relax knowing it had arrived, and without having to be removed from “the zone” she was in during her workout session.
This really hit home for me too. Whenever I work out, I make a point of leaving my phone in my locker for a phone-free hour when I can concentrate on me, and my workout. Unfortunately the reality of this is that my phone separation leaves with anxiety that I may be missing important calls or emails, and by the end of my workout I’m racing back to my locker to check for urgent updates. I love the idea that my mind can remain focused and settled, just by being able to receive incoming alerts to a device on my wrist. And what a device it is! The Gear Fit watch is slim, stylish and comfortable; something you would be happy to wear inside and outside of the gym on a daily basis.
Together, the GALAXY S5 and Gear Fit help support healthier lifestyles. The GALAXY S5 features enhanced S Health software and hardware that includes a built-in heart rate sensor, and is designed to be your personal fitness tracker. Combined with the wearable Gear Fit, the two will provide you with real-time updates on your condition, walking distance, calories, speed, duration and more.
Don’t the GALAXY S5 and Gear Fit sound like two things you need to have in your life, like, NOW!? Well, thanks to Telus, you can! Telus has generously teamed up with GracieCarroll.com to offer one lucky reader their very own Galaxy S5 and Gear Fit! Follow the steps below to enter:
