ETourism Insight, “The Travel Blog for Travel Geeks, recently reviewed the new EvEx Uplift app. Excerpts:
Healthy Travel? There’s an app for that.
You know the saying that sometimes the simplest solution is best? When it comes to healthy travel/fitness apps for the iPhone, I think that’s more than appropriate, and it’s exactly what the new Everywhere Exercise – EvEx Uplift delivers.
what I love is how simple the exercises are. They’re just simple images with instructions, all on one screen, so you don’t need a degree in physical education to understand what they’re asking you to do.
Many of the suggestions are stretches, which is something I always caution travelers to make use of. The contortions, pulls and bends that a trip through any airport or train station put on our body is enough to cause strain and injury. The app walks you through a number of various stretches guaranteed to help.
Some of the exercises involved massaging pressure points as well. This isn’t something I have as much familiarity with, but I figured why not. The pressure points, oddly enough, worked wonders after carrying my bags quite some way to the train station recently. It’s one of those weird things where you think, how could simply squeezing in a certain place make a difference, but it does. (Really – try it!)
Lastly the app suggests a number of various foot stretches – similar to the ones you see in the back of airline magazines, but far more extensive.
I love how the app is well designed; it’s pretty and bright, but it’s also functional… it’s worth it simply for the stretching recommendations, but the pressure points and fancy footwork techniques are even more value.
