Did you know that the number one New Year’s resolution made yearly by people is to get in shape and lose weight? It also the number one resolution people lose interest in.  Well, fitness gear has now gone high tech.  The tech aspect just may keep you interested in your new exercise routine enough to actually make it permanent this year!
