A great way to stick to your fitness goals is to keep a log of all your important data. Fitness trackers measure everything from your vitals to quality of sleep. They count your steps, pulse and more. When you're able to easily monitor your stats, you're more likely to be aware of your accomplishments and areas to improve keeping your motivation for fitness high.

Fitness trackers make the perfect companion to your home fitness cardio equipment. Many have built in cardio equipment modes, but you may need to adjust the settings or exercise shortcuts in order to track a specific indoor exercise. For example Fitbit allows you to sign into an app and add spinning to your shortcuts. Then you are able to manually start and stop tracking your indoor cycle exercise.
