We can barely believe we’re writing our monthly wrap-up post as September went by in a flash, but here’s our recap on Fitstream goings on this month.
We made a new friend in Chris Angel, a quantified-selfer we had the pleasure of speaking with who’s used his self measurement method to lose over 82 lbs of fat since January! Find out how he did it and learn about his personal experience in our interview.
We also published our free September Fitness Planner to help you plan out goals and activity for the month and it made it onto people’s fridges around the world. Seeing as how you're finding it useful we're going to keep it up and will be releasing the October planner in a day or two so check back soon.
There’s thousands of you are using our Fitness Journal app to track your body metrics and we’re getting a lot of questions on what’s the best way to track body fat in particular. We have our general guide to measuring body fat and for those of you doing it yourself with calipers we’ve now updated our body fat caliper tracking article so it’s more helpful and contains a template and formulas to get you started.
Whilst we're on the topic of the Fitstream Journaling app - it was a huge month for Apple as they released iOS8 and a two new iPhones and this meant a lot of work for us to update Fitstream. We’re just waiting for approval on the latest version now but there’s a pretty large queue so it’s taking longer than usual. It should be coming soon and as soon as it gets the green light you’ll find a slightly sexier redesign and the introduction of a whole new area with your current body measurements to show your latest body status at a glance.
Thanks for using Fitstream and as usual we’d love to hear from you with any feedback or ideas.
