James Piecowye thinking out loud

Ideas, inspiration and a bit of random.

Fitness Spotlight

Posted on | January 9, 2018 | No Comments

Every week I have the opportunity to sit down with Marcus Smith and talk fitness.
Marcus is the man behind Innerfight, more than a gym, healthy lifestyle way of thinking.
Although a healthy fit body does lead to everything else falling into place.
This week we had a great chat about Apps and there are 2 in particular that Marcus points to.

  1. MyFitnessPal this is a great tracker
  2. TrainingPeaks  this is a great training app if you have a coach

Myself I am also using the FitBit app with a FitBit Ionic and love it.
As is the usual we have a very fun, informative and educational conversation about all sorts of things that touch on wellbeing.
Below is one way to listen to the show and you can get it to load via iTunes!

One of the moments that was particularly interesting and important to all of us on the show this week was the conversation about hydration.
Here is a great link to get you thinking.
Here is the conversation from the show about hydration where Marcus and myself compare our own experiences with being under hydrated and what our suggestions are.
