Most of the time, we are swamped with school work, caught up in social media, or busy with our own social lives. Unfortunately, we fail to squeeze in exercise in our hectic schedules. We also find it hard to choose healthy food over convenient, affordable and hassle-free fast food meals. Let's be completely honest and admit that there are just days when we choose ice cream, burgers and chocolate cake over healthy salads and fruit shakes. These setbacks hinder us from a achieving a fit bod and a healthy overall disposition. We can get back on track of healthy living with discipline, time management, and the right tools to help us monitor our progress. Garmin, the world leader and pioneer in GPS, is finally here in the Philippines with a broad portfolio of gadgets for those who want to live their lives in motion.
