Luckily, there are a variety of activity and fitness trackers available that will motivate you and illustrate how much you’re improving. To help Orangeville apartment residents get started tracking their physical fitness, our preferred property management company, Williams and McDaniel has compiled a few activity trackers that will keep fitness at the forefront.



The Moves app automatically records any running, cycling or walking you do and allows you to view the duration, distance, steps and calories burned for each activity. You won’t have to worry about starting and stopping this tracker, as it is always on. Simply keep it in your jacket pocket or the bag you use daily. Set a daily goal of how far you want to walk, such as 10,000 steps per day. Seeing the exercise you do on a daily basis will help you achieve those bigger fitness goals. With small changes here and there you can adopt healthier habits and lose weight in a natural and safe way. “Moves” is compatible with iPhone and Android devices.
