Now in the best shape of her life, Richards inspires others to improve their lives using the Fitbit. She gives one to each of her clients and is able to monitor their progress and ensure they're keeping up with their training regimens. "It helps me help them get better and ensures that they are honest with me," she says.
Richards's other favorite workout gadget is her Verizon Wireless smartphone, which is synced with her Fitbit and also helps her shop for food, try other fitness apps, do online health and fitness research, find cycling routes, and stay in touch on 100-mile bike rides alone and with her husband.
"My smartphone is my peace of mind when I'm riding. I would never go riding or running without my phone," she said.
With one gift and a smartphone, Richards' life-changing journey shows nothing is impossible to achieve.Video with caption: "In December 2010, Linda Richards opened a Christmas present that transformed not only her appearance, but her life. She received a Fitbit, a wireless device that tracks her steps taken, calories burned, movements made and sleep patterns, and then syncs the information to her Verizon Wireless smartphone and computer. Today, Richards is 155 pounds lighter and is a certified fitness trainer and weight loss coach, helping others transform their bodies and their lives with the help of technology."
