Stuck in traffic? Waiting for the doctor? Conference call will never end? Then it's the perfect time to do some bicep curls. Well, it is if you have an iPhone. The newREPS iPhone app lets you use the phone as a virtual free weight to burn calories and tone muscle.

width=300The REPS app allows you to set a target weight loss goal, has a rep counter, shows calorie burn rate and provides motivational messages. The iPhones weigh less than five ounces, so don't be fooled into thinking you'll be ripping muscles while you cruise to work in the subway. But in the same vein as the Wii Fit, the REPS app introduces additional, simple movement into your routine, allowing you to burn calories and keep those muscles working.

Try the REPS iPhone app for yourself for $2.99.
