February is fitness month at iMore and Mobile Nations! [iPad 3 giveaway!]

Get thinner, get stronger, get faster, get healthier with iMore and Mobile Nations in February!

Mobile Nations Fitness Month: Read all the reviews!

(opens in new tab)

New Years is over, January has come and gone, and for many of us, our get fit and get healthy resolutions have come and gone with it. Rather than leaving them lying in ruin with what's left of our waist lines and good intentions, however, we want to do something about it. And we want you to do something about it with us!

Whether CrackBerry challenged Android Central, WPCentral threw down the gauntlet on webOS Nation, or iMore called them all out, who remembers? The important thing is this -- we're using February to get off our collective apps and get into shape.

Think about it -- mobile is where it's increasingly at for health and fitness. Our iPhone go everywhere we go and are the perfect way to record everything from our activity to our diet to our sleep cycles. And our iPads let us look at all that data on a bigger screen and really see where we are and where we need to be. Mobile has become lifestyle.

So... Want to eat better? iMore is with you! Want to get stronger? We're spotting! Want to get into better cardio shape? We're so there!

Each week we're each going to set reasonable, attainable goals, and each week we're going to take advantage of our awesome community to make sure we attain them. We're going to have special editions of our ZEN and TECH and Superfunctional podcasts to help us get going and stay going, and we're going to use our brand new Health and Fitness Forum to keep us focused, keep us accountable, and keep us keeping on!

Oh, and you could win an iPad 3!

You, the iMore Nation, are our motivation. And to keep you motivated, we have some great prizes lined up. Anyone and everyone who participates, who shares their goals and keeps us up-to-date with their regular progress will be automatically entered to into our:

  • Weekly drawings for an iPod nano. We're giving away 4 total, one each week!
  • Grand prize drawing for an iPad 3 IOU! (You'll get it when Apple launches it!)

There will also be some great app and accessory giveaways along the way to keep everyone on their toes.

Sound good? Sound great? Sound like you just can't wait to get fit? Good! Jump into our new Health and Fitness Forum now and pick your goal for week 1.

Mobile Nations fitness month has begun!

  • I love how the terms have changed. Diet? No no, we say eating program. Excerise, no that is really a basic wellness program. Georgia will like this next one. Crazy, No, we say mentally challenged. Not me. When it comes to higher math, rocket science stuff, I am very mentally challenged, but I am not crazy.
    Diet, and excerise is the real key to being healthy. Everyone have fun. You know why early man was so healthy eating nothing but meat? Well, he had to chase the critter for 17 miles before throwing a spear at it. Now you had to be in great shape to do that. Start off slow. When you buy groceries. Park way out, and always take your empty cart all the way back into the store. That's a start. Cheers.

  • I had a first gen iPad for being top sales guy at Guitar Center. I didn't have with it a week until someone decided they wanted more than I did and stole it from my home. This is my chance to do it again. If living a healthy life style can bring me wealth, while also obtaining one of the greatest devises ever, I'm all in. Good luck everyone. The main objective is continuing this positive and healthy life choice for the rest of our life.
