I received my tracker quickly after purchasing from Amazon. Everything worked wonderfully fresh out of the box. Last week I was browsing fitness trackers online and it occurred to me that not many people use the Jawbone trackers anymore since their peak in popularity just three years ago. It was then that I discovered news articles from mid-2017 stating that Jawbone had gone out of business. While the tracker I have is still working, I wonder how long the app will continue to function and the tracker will continue doing what I need it to do? So for now, I am going to continue to enjoy using my tracker until I am no longer able to. It's such a shame because I really like the product. It just appears that for whatever reason, Jawbone couldn't keep up with the competitive demands of the fitness tracker market. So far, the tracker lives up to the quality I had previously experienced as a Jawbone user. I will continue to keep my eyes open in the meantime for a similar simplistic device that does not require me to wear on my wrist for my inevitable future tracker purchase. So if you're in the market for a cheap short term fitness tracker, then it appears the Jawbone Up Move tracker may be just for you.

How I'm doing the challenge.Day 1 was a lot of awkward freestyle movement. I turned on my Pandora Radio app and tuned into to the Amy Winehouse channel. I set up my camera to record some of my progress for sharing purposes and set a timer for 15 minutes. Then I just danced. I danced around the pole clockwise and counterclockwise, did body rolls, forward bends, danced through the Pandora commercials, and even played a game of fetch with my dog that kept bringing me a stuffed toy- ALL while I danced. It felt good to spin and move. A lot of muscle memory still exists but the movements felt rough around the edges. Surprisingly, 15 minutes felt like an awful long time for continuous movement. I event checked the time with 4 minutes to go thinking the timer had failed me and I'd been dancing for 30 minutes. I'm looking forward to continuing this challenge throughout the month and will hopefully come away with putting pole back into my regular fitness rotation.
Day 1 #fortheloveofpole challenge! Pole dance every day in February for at least 15 minutes. I actually worked up a sweat during my 15 minutes. So good to get back on the pole- even if it was for a warmup freestyle type dance. #polechallenge #polefitness #poledance #poleharmonyblog #poleharmony #fitnessblogger #fitnessA post shared by Pole Harmony Blog (@poleharmony) on

February is the month of love and what better way to get fit than to dance with the apparatus that we love so much. I'm going to try something new this month and get back to dancing with the pole. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ I am challenging myself (and anyone else that wants to participate) to pole dance at least 15 minutes a day for the entire month of February. Post a video or pic from your daily pole session and tag #fortheloveofpole ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ (Just a heads up- President's Day weekend I'll be off skiing at a mountain resort so I won't be able to participate however, I am going to make an effort to pole every day possible when I will be home and around my pole.) #polechallenge #polefitness #poledance #poleharmonyblog #poleharmony #february #february2018 #fitnessblogger #fitness #fitnesschallengeA post shared by Pole Harmony Blog (@poleharmony) on
