Thanks, Christine!

Kelly Reid

Thanks for your extensive comments on personal fitness devices! I'm more than a bit of a nerd in this area...check out sleekgeekblog.com to understand why.

Mind if I follow up with you as I develop my ideas on personal fitness software further? You seem to have many thoughts on the matter. My email is kellyreid@gmail.com, what's the best way to contact you?

--

Nike+ (Top notch design...might go a bit overboard even)
MapMyRun (gets the job done, no frills)
FitBit (I don't have this but have always wanted to check it out)
DigiFit (great for heart rate tracking during your workout)
Heart rate by Azumio (Uses the camera flash to monitor blod flow through your finger tip!)
Stress check also by Azumio
Livstrong My Plate (calorie tracker)
Dailymile is also a great site to help you track your training and sharing it with friends. You can import data from Garmin or Nike+ devices.

Hi Kelly, did you still want help on this?

Kelly Reid

Thanks for checking back in! After many meetings and attempting the customer dev cycle I couldn't find a business model + product offering that I thought was a viable -business-. My ideas would be cool toys but as of right now, I ice-boxed the idea.

Are you still using a FitBit? I kind of retired mine, since I'm basically sedentary for the winter.

Christine Mortensen

You're very welcome! I'd be happy to help. Feel free to reach out via email christine@sprk-d.com

Cheers,
Christine

From the moment we started planning this event, December 10th couldn’t come fast enough. The topic of staying healthy while starting a business is something I’ve struggled with for over a year now. The late nights (that turn into early mornings), lack of sleep, and the huge swaths of time sitting...

It’s that time of year again – the holiday season, with all the festive treats that come along with it. And as an entrepreneur, you’re also pretty used to long hours working on building your business. Neither of these necessarily makes for the healthiest lifestyle… But have no fear! Veteran...
