Looking Back At My Predictions, Health Tracking In Q1

Several months ago I wrote a piece titled "3 Themes Carrying Over Into 2014," in which I highlighted some of the trends I expected to come to fruition this year in the health tracking market. Just to review, one of the core questions I raised was whether or not a typical consumer really wants to lug around two devices, their phone and a separate tracking gizmo, or wearable.Q1 served to be a bus...

2 Ways To Automate Your Performance Nutrition Needs

Have you ever needed a quick healthy snack before a run or workout, just to realize you have literally nothing lying around? It’s honestly embarrassing how many times this has happened to me, especially on busy days when I’m in a huge hurry to squeeze a run in before a meeting, or more often, before dark.

Leading Candidates To Crack Passive Nutrition Tracking

It's no secret, nutrition tracking systems are generally tedious and frustrating. With each calorie consumed users are forced to manually search through glorified databases and guess at whether the item on the page is really THAT similar to what was eaten. For example, simply typing "banana" into a calorie tracker yields dozens of results ranging from bananas of various sizes all the way to "ba...

3 Strength Training Apps Worth Checking Out

The App Store is chalk full of strength training apps, and let's be honest, they aren't all worth the time it takes to download them.

And for a list of only three apps all focused on strictly on strength training, these fantastic exec...

3 Unbeatable Serving Size Guides

You know that guy that you hang out with at trivia night...but pretty much nowhere else. The guy who knows only the useless information that kills at trivia night but is otherwise useless in everyday life. Well, I think I have some useless information trapped in my head as well, and here it is:"One serving of strawberries equals 152 grams of strawberries."That fun fact gets me nowhere in my day...
