“Necessity really is the mother of invention. I was looking for a way to follow the progress of my clients, and I needed a way to track many aspects of my own life in addition to my exercise regime without using tons of paper," said Robert Jay Martin.
Spring Lake, MI (PRWEB) September 14, 2010
Personal trainer, author, speaker, and network marketer, Robert Jay Martin has invented a new state of the art app called the iLog1©. The iLog1, is now on sale in the iTunes store (http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ilog1/id388452639?mt=8) for $2.99, it allows users to digitally document and track their diet, workouts, sleep habits, house/school work, mood and countless other types of information. It is the first app of its kind available for use with the iPod, iPad, and iPhone.
The additional charting capabilities of the iLog1 help to reveal trends in user’s overall health and fitness, including their sleep patterns, and their BMI (Body Mass Index). The app also functions as a chronological log where users can record almost anything they desire.
Like most inventions, the product is the result of an issue that the inventor has been affected by in his day-to-day activities. Robert invented the app and navigated it through the production process because of the massive amounts of paper he was swimming in personally and professionally. “Necessity really is the mother of invention,” said Robert.
“As a personal trainer I was looking for a way to follow the progress of my clients, and I needed a way to track many aspects of my own life in addition to my exercise regime without using tons of paper. I had a hunch that people worldwide, in all walks of life, were struggling with this same problem. So it only seemed natural to develop a versatile solution utilizing the advanced technology that is accessible worldwide,” he added.
The adaptability of the iLog1 allows the program to be used by many different segments of the population including but not limited to, cyclists, runners, walkers, coaches, sports psychologists, weight lifters, dieticians, swimmers, therapists, counselors, doctors, and personal trainers. Large corporations can use the iLog1 to monitor employees participating in health incentive programs. It is also a valuable tool for individuals looking to monitor their weight loss and/or begin exercising.
