Burn the Turkey
Are you getting ready to stuff yourself with turkey, mashed potatoes and pie?
Scared of putting on extra weight during the upcoming holiday season?
We hear you loud and clear, and we’ve just released a new application called Burn the Turkey that’s designed to help get you moving after your Thanksgiving feast. It’s easy to forget about exercise during the holiday season, but we want to help you motivate yourself to burn off all of those extra calories.
After you download Burn the Turkey, follow the instructions to place a Thanksgiving delicious turkey right on your home screen. After you’ve started, all of the calories you burn from exercise will be automatically counted towards your goal. Watch the turkey disappear as you make progress, and burn off 3000 calories to finish the entire thing!

Burn the Turkey automatically integrates with CardioTrainer, our free application that lets you track all of your exercise activity using your phone.

For detailed instructions on how to install the application, visit the Burn the Turkey help page for more information.
CardioTrainer v3.2 – Facebook Sharing Improvements
We are also releasing an update to CardioTrainer v3.2 with some big improvements to the way you share your workouts on Facebook. Instead of automatically posting each workout, you’ll see a dialogue after each workout asking if you want to share on Facebook with a comment. You’ll also see the Facebook icon in the lower left-hand corner of the screen when you’re reviewing a track from your history. This lets you post the workout and share your progress at any time.
The new sharing dialogue that you’ll see after you finish your workout, and the Facebook icon right in your workout history.
If you’ve had any trouble with CardioTrainer posting to Facebook, this should help with most of those problems. Giving you more control over what gets posted to Facebook is just the first step in how we’re getting ready to let you do more right from your mobile device, so stay turned for lots more features coming soon. If you’re not interested in sharing on Facebook, you can go to CardioTrainer Settings > Sharing Settings and check the button to “Never share,” which won’t show you the dialogue box after each workout.
Let us know if you have any questions, we’d love to hear what you think of the new Burn the Turkey widget and new Facebook sharing features!
Happy exercising, and Happy Thanksgiving!
