ROANOKE CO., Va. -

The Green Ridge Recreation Center has added new screens to the workout machines. You can now surf the web or play games while working out.

The machines are synched up with a smart phone app that enables you to track all your exercise.

“You can log your exercise, the machine actually records how many steps you take or how many repetitions you make on the bike, things like that,” Head Trainer Chelsea Arner said.

Trainers say the machines also have card and memory games that are a hit with some members.
