Accomplish the 100 Pushup Challenge with a BlackBerry App


The Pushups app for BlackBerry is a training regiment to help you reach 100 pushups. The app gives you a graph and encouragement to reach 100 pushups in a six week time frame. With only 30 minutes per week, this app is going to help you get more fit and reach triple digit pushups.

One feature that is missing from this app is Twitter integration. Ideally, the app would tweet each time you reach a benchmark of pushups. Also, at $6.99 (currently on sale for $3.99) the app is a little on the pricey side.

More information available about Pushups in our store.

Fitness and diet monitoring and tracking with your BlackBerry



I decided I should probably try to get my blood pressure under control. My Doctor hooked me up with a dietician and she has me keeping track of my calorie intake and my exercise habits. At first I thought, piece of cake, I’ll just write down everything in a notebook. After the first 3 weeks I lost my notebook. I got another notebook, but it’s just too tedious to keep up with. After a little deductive reasoning, the next best solution would be to use my Blackberry device as my journal, as I never lose track of it, knock on wood. After going through what was available online I decided on Ascendo Fitness. My first impression is I like what I see so far.
