Convenience is everything in 2018. Apps for your phone, tablet, TV, and even your car, have revolutionized the entire concept of convenience over the past decade. In the past, if you wanted to search for a new car, you had to actually drive to a dealership to see what they had on their lot…now you can scroll through every dealer lot in town, and across the entire country, without ever getting out of your chair!
More pertinent to the scope of our newsletter, if you were going to track your nutrition, you used to have to buy a book filled with nutrition facts for anything that didn’t come with a nutrition label (e.g. fresh fruit, vegetables, etc…), and you needed an actual pen, paper and a calculator to figure it out and write it all down…now just one free app, like MyFitnessPal, can do all that! And when you needed to buy anything from groceries to fitness equipment, you had to drive across town to whichever store. Now you can order your groceries on-line and have them delivered to your door, and as detailed above, you can use our Amazon Local Associates page to order all the exact fitness equipment we recommend, and have it delivered to your home, with a tap of your finger!
Technology can’t do everything though. On-line training is a perfect example. Apps may offer high quality video tutorials, explaining and demonstrating how to properly perform various exercises (as will our own such feature, coming soon to our network of WorkoutWhereYouWork.com websites), but they can’t correct you if you’re doing something wrong. An app can’t pull a weight off your chest if you’ve attempted one too many bench presses…and an app can’t shake your hand, pat you on the back, or even give you a hug on days when that might just be all you really need!
Technology is wonderful. People are better. Embrace both!
Yours in health,
