Words that Caught My Eye

“There are only two options regarding commitment. You’re either IN or you’re OUT. There is no such thing as life in-between.” – Pat Riley

Gear that is Cool

Personal fitness gear is all the rage. Whether you're into it or think it is gimmicky the complete pack Under Armour Health Box is worth a look. I'm a huge fan of data so I'm immediately interested. The box comes with a scale, Under Armour band, and heart rate monitor. These sync to your smartphone to provide such data as sleep duration, workout intensity, pulse, and steps taken, giving you a daily snapshot of your health. Price tag is a little hefty at $549.00 CAD but might be worth it for fully integrated data set.

Stretches of the Week

Happy Training Everyone!
