Progio Training Companion for health buffs


The Battle of the Bulge has just taken on a new dimension, even for casual exercisers who prefer to perform their own system of performance metrics in order to gage their progress. This view is in line with sports science which has already proven that only a structured, progressive exercise program will be able to deliver the greatest benefit to your health while maximizing your physical performance. Unfortunately for the layman, learning, remembering and actually putting such programs to practice could prove overwhelming – hence the need to find the correct balance of activities that encompass strength, flexibility, cardio, and functional exercises. The Progio Training Companion is one such device, offering you fitness, rehabilitation, and sport-specific workouts in addition to keeping track of your results, monitoring your heart rate, and keeping you motivated in a single portable device that fits comfortably in your hand.

This rugged, handheld device offers a complete workout instruction that comes with each purchase. All workouts on the Progio come complete with step-by-step exercise instructions, ensuring you don’t do otherwise and ending up with an injury instead. The range of workouts also let you cycle between strength and cardio sessions to give you the best of both worlds. In addition, Progio is smart enough to record your workout, synching it with the main website for you to measure your progress.

All you need to do is push a button and the Progio will get to work straight away. It retails for $399 without the heart rate monitor, while a bundled version will cost $499. Definitely cheaper than a personal trainer, but do you have the discipline to see it through?
