After talking about the Kiqplan
The Kiqplan will snyc to an activity tracker such as a Fitbug product, Fitbit products, Nike+, Apple activity trackers, Jawbone and more.
For £19.99 you will receive the downloadable app that will assist you on your journey to a healthier and fitter lifestyle. You can set your own goals that you would like to achieve and the virtual coach will prompt you through updates on your phone to get you moving, or adding in your daily food intake.
I find the main cheat for me when attempting to be healthier is not recording my food and drink. It’s amazing how easy it is to forget about that bar of chocolate or glass of wine, but when you add it into an app that tells you exactly how many calories that is costing you, it makes me think a lot more.
I’m always really pleased with myself when I go for a run, but when I think how much I struggled for thirty minutes and by eating a chocolate bar it would undo all that work, it makes me wonder if the chocolate was worth it.
The app provides you with daily tips to read and this is aimed to encourage you to follow the plan to its full and get the most out of it. As the Kiqplan syncs with my activity tracker which in my case is the Fitbug Orb, I found it really easy to see the app updating itself in terms of my daily steps. I did find it a bit of a pain however to have to record my sleep pattern separately on the Slim N Trim app when the Orb automatically does it for me. This would be a good update I think for the app.
Also the food intake has to be added separately, so I stopped entering my daily intake on both the app and the Fitbug website as it felt as thought I was duplicating myself. This wouldn’t be an issue however if you weren’t using a Fitbug product as your activity tracker.
What makes the Kiqplan stand out for me is the exercise programs. There are videos to guide you through exercises which you are recommended to complete twice a week. I found the exercises to be easy to complete where ever I was. I didn’t need any extra equipment to complete then, and it was easy to listen to my phone telling me what to do.
Overall, I like the concept of the Kiqplans. There are a few different plans available, and they fall into a good price bracket if you have already got an activity tracker.
