Swimsuit season is here.  From treadmills to dumbbells, your routine can become mundane.  But thanks to technology, boring workouts are now a thing of the past.

You want to get fit but hate sharing your workout room with a bunch of strangers? Well take advantage of your technology.

For Nintendo Wii, try Ubisoft’s Your Shape Fitness Evolved 2013. It includes 125 different workouts, 215 moves, and a personalized four week program.

For a more vigorous workout, try THQ’s UFC Personal Trainer. It provides training from experts in kickboxing, wrestling, and muay thai.

Are you more of an app person? Try iFitness Pro. It has hundreds of exercises divided into body region and primary targets. Or try Zombies, Run!, a role-playing app that scares you into shape, while completing over 30 missions.

Another high-tech way to mix it up includes the Withings WS30 scale. Designed for those who want to chart their progress, once you step on it your weight and BMI are automatically uploaded to a free app.
