Snap Fitness’s easyFIT monitor is a small, clip-on accelerometer that helps to keep track of daily exercise. Unlike pedometers that merely measure steps and spy on daydreams, the easyFIT monitor senses the intensity and duration of physical activity, transmogrifying those stats into simple, numerical points that help to assess activity levels from sedentary to peak performance. In addition to tracking exercise in real time, easyFIT monitors can connect to the wearer’s personal web portal to upload data and create fitness graphs that help to show progress, snag exercise suggestions, and stave off the temptation of living next to a hamburger farm.

During a 30-minute fitness assessment, a certified personal trainer helps members to evaluate their strength, flexibility, and cardiovascular health before etching a 60-day fitness plan into their favorite dumbbell. Snap Fitness’s around-the-clock gyms enable members to work on physical well-being with a cornucopia of equipment. With optional 24-hour access, members don’t have to let The Man or a random street man tell them when to help themselves to Snap’s strength equipment or top-of-the-line, TV-equipped cardio equipment. Members also enjoy nationwide access to all Snap Fitness locations, ideal for working out while traveling or along the course of an ultra-ultramarathon.
