Here’s a pretty strong statement I came across recently:

A scientist in the US claims fitness apps could be “doing more harm than good”.

What do you reckon?

Cause if there’s anything in this, it goes against pretty much everything that we thought we knew about exercise.

Anyways, this bloke (a computer science expert) claims that the whole 10,000 steps a day is a meaningless fitness goal that was based on one bit of Japanese research some 50 years ago.

Interesting right?

Especially with the amount of money that’s spent on Fitbits and the like these days.

But for my two cents?

Is it really that bad a thing if we’re encouraging people to move 10,000 steps a day?

Obviously, it’s a hell of a lot better than sitting on our arse all day long.

I reckon it’s just some computer geek trying to get his 15 minutes of fame but blasting something popular.

So as far as I’m concerned, don’t go throwing away your step counters and the like just yet just cause this bloke bags em.

Personally, I don’t use one, but common sense tells us that the more we move the healthier we are.

And when you add in a couple of training sessions each week to your normal walking routine?

Well that’s where the real magic happens.

The pants ‘magically’ get looser.

That tummy ‘magically’ gets smaller.

You can finally see some tone were there was none before.

It feels good right?

It looks good too I’m sure you’ll agree.

Don’t forget what I’ve been mentioning about that potential for extra morning small group sessions.

Are you interested?

I can only make it happen if there’s at least 5 people committed.

I’ve got 1 for the Wednesday and 1 for the Friday at the moment.

So need 4 more to make it doable.

– Wednesday and Friday mornings 7:15am-7:45am

Venue: Observatory Hill

Starting next week if enough interest.

Yes, this would join in addition to the usual Tuesday and Thursday mornings we already do there.

So if you’re already making it to one of these, there’s another option if you can’t make both days.

Hit reply now and let me know what days if you want in.

And thanks for spreading the word to your friends who may be interested.
