Fitbit Flex or Jawbone Up: Which is the better fitness companion for your wrist?

Personally, I didnt notice much of a difference here, but its a nice touch. The sleep function includes the ability to take a power nap and be woken at the optimal time as well. While the Jawbone Up has a team function in which you can compete with others, I couldnt find any friends using the device to test this function; I have several dozen using the Fitbit tracker. The Up will analyze your data and give you motivational messages via the iOS app. Its called Insights, and the feature gives you suggestions based on the data it receives such as getting more sleep and compares your sleep and activities.

Fitness: Phil fitter than ever

The results are compensatory patterns within the swing in an attempt to overcome these dysfunctions. Unfortunately such a situation typically results in the development of detrimental swing faults. If we dissect the most common areas of physical dysfunction affecting the amateur players golf swing the hips and core are at the top of the list. The hips are a categorized as a ball and socket joint with the ability to rotate through a large range of motion. And in order to execute a proficient swing the hips must be mobile in order to create the rotary actions found within the swing. Many amateurs are limited in this area. Limitations in the core are a common problem area for the golfer as well.

Former Radio Shack CFO Fills Planet Fitness Hole

Because Y-MVP is a social mediabased program, it encourages teens http://issuu.com/maxworkoutspdf/docs/free-max-workouts-pdf-download to create an online community of active peers who can talk about fitness and their healthy lifestyles. The Y-MVP was piloted this spring at the Bedford-Stuyvesant Y in Brooklyn and the Harlem Y, and is set to launch later this fall. The Y-MVP program provides kids with a range of activities, from single day workouts to longer-term goals. For example, "Swim Like a Pro" challenges participants to swim four times for 30 minutes, plus incorporate crosstraining exercises into their workout over three weeks. The "Let's Move" challenge -- named after Michelle Obama's initiative -- urges teens to be active for 60 minutes, five days a week for six weeks. As users log in, track their exercises and increase their training time, they earn virtual badges and accomplish fitness goals that may result in tangible rewards (e.g., t-shirts, water bottles or access to fitness classes).

Before Radio Shack, Mr. Lively was CFO of Ace Hardware Corp. and he has held finance positions at Pepsi-Cola International and Toys R Us.
