Over the past couple weeks, fall has…well…fallen on many regions of the US. For some of us, however, it feels like winter is right on autumn’s heels.
Here, in Chicago, a wintery chill made for a very fast (and very cold) marathon last weekend and our ski and snowboarding friends out west are already enjoying the first granules of powder at A Basin.
While we will hopefully still have more beautiful crisp running days ahead, we know that treadmill season is not far away. This week, for our Moji Motivation video, we want to share a classic video that speaks to those of us who have already turned indoors for our runner’s high.
Here’s to entertaining cold weather workouts and good tunes. Who knows, after enough miles on the mill, maybe we’ll all look that good in bright red skinny jeans…or whatever slightly more dialed-down version of pants you choose to wear.
What do you get when you cross a Nintendo Wii and a Garmin?
Apparently, a better night’s sleep.
Meet Fitbit, the latest in health and wellness technology. This diminutive device packs a big data punch for those of us who love to crunch numbers. Moreover, it brings to the forefront one of the most essential components of getting fit – recovery.
Fitbit, whose website launches tomorrow, tracks your fitness through a similar motion-sensing technology to that made famous by the Nintendo Wii and seamlessly uploads that data onto your personal web-based account through wireless technology. Just clip it on your clothing or the Fitbit wristband and you can instantly track calories, distanced traveled, and even sleep quality.
Yes, that’s right. Strap on this little sidekick overnight and Fitbit will give you stats on how well you slept – when you went to bed, when you actually fell asleep, how frequently you woke up at night, and how long you were down for the count.
Since we are into science and technology here at Moji, we would probably be so excited about our nightly results that we would hardly be able to sleep. However, like Fitbit, we understand that every bit of fit counts – even those that aren’t instinctively seen as fitness activities.
