《28 Tech》 Episode 3 - Health, Fitness & Sports Performance

2014-10-19
In the last few years, wearable devices, gadgets and apps that aim to help us become fitter, leaner and stronger have flooded the market. Tools that were once the domain of professional athletes are now widely available to the public. 

In this episode of 28 Tech, we look at what types of devices are the most effective and how technology is changing the way we train, as well as rest.

My first guest is the Editor in Chief for the gadgets and gizoms magazine T3 and online portal T3.com, Kieran Alger. He  is an avid runner, (14 marathons and 4 ultra marathons completed)  and reviews wearable devices and fitness tech. I talk to Kieran in this episode about how our obessin with wearable devices came about, what are the elements of a successful sports tech device and what he thinks is the future for fitness gadgets.

Tom Summers, my second guest, is the Director and Head Trainer at Hong Kong's Pinnacle Performance and an official Nike Athletic Trainer.  He has worked with professional cricket, rugby and football athletes in Hong Kong, the United Kingdom and Zimbabwe. I started off by asking Tom what defines an Athlete today. We also talked about the tracking tools professional athletes use today that are availble to all of us an how we can use their performance to improve ours.
