A New Beginning - Track Your Way to Better Health & Fitness 01-01-2015

Fitstream Journal

A new year can bring with it a strong impetus for change. It’s a useful time to leverage and fulfil those health and fitness goals you’ve had for a while, but haven’t quite conquered.

We’re here to help you and we think this can be your strongest year yet.

In 2014 it was Fitstream who transformed, we were quietly building the foundations of a new body tracking and journalling service and released our application to the Apple Store. Thousands of you downloaded Fitstream and are using it to log body measurements, capture progress pictures and journal your health experiments. We’re proud to see the changes that you’re making and it’s driving us to do bigger and better things.

We’re determined that 2015 will be our best year yet. Our Android version is in development and you’ll see it on the Google Play store soon. We’re translating the app into multiple other languages and we have a long list of features that we’ll be building from your feedback.

Fitstream is now a hugely powerful platform that can be used to transform your health and fitness. It’s built on the simple principle of focus, and what you focus on the most is what will appear in your life. Tracking your body with Fitstream creates an awareness of how you’re changing and how your body reacts to elements you control. As they say, what gets measured, gets managed, and it is the small, yet continuous changes that build up to life changing transformations.

Firstly, you should download our app. Then we’d recommend reading how to keep a fitness journal or our framework for self experimentation. This will teach you the basic steps built around planning your goals, tracking your progress, and reflecting on the results.

Our mission is to help change bodies for the better around the world. To provide a tool which motivates and inspires change, and is built around a collaborative community driving each other forward.

Thank you for being a part of Fitstream.

January 2015 Fitness Planning Calendar 31-12-2014

January Fitness Planner

As we move into a new year, there’s no better time to take control of your health and fitness. You can start to undo the damage from your carbogeddon over the festive period by downloading our January 2015 Fitness Planner.

It’s completely free to use. Simply print it out, stick it to the fridge and start thinking about the month ahead.

Here are some of the ways our calendar helped people last year -

  • Mapping out workouts through the month 
  • Recording goals and targets 
  • Marking personal bests and achievements 
  • Reminders for weigh-ins and progress picture days

It’s such a simple idea but works so well because it keeps you focused on goals, planning activity ahead of time, and makes you accountable by tracking your progress. Let’s remove the guesswork and make 2015 the best year of your life!

If you're not already using it, don’t forget to download our iPhone app for tracking the changes in your body and capturing those progress pics too.

This month’s calendar quote seemed particularly apt for a new year -

With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts

October Wrap-up at Fitstream 03-11-2014

wrap-up

We’re another month down and hurtling very quickly towards the end of the year. Let’s take a quick look at what we accomplished with Fitstream in October.

There was great progress with our fitness journaling app this month and we finally had our latest version approved by Apple. This introduced new features including;

  1. Updated interface design for iOS 8 
  2. Current Measurements interface so that you can see your latest stats and progress picture at a glance 
  3. Automatic calculation of your Lean Body Mass and BMI reading 

We’ve already submitted our next release which should be updating on your phones in around 7 days. It’s smaller update but includes;

  1. New measurement icons to make it easier (and prettier) when logging those stats 
  2. Support for other languages. We’ve had a tonne of requests for this and we’ll be starting with a German version of Fitstream, which will hopefully be released before the end of November 
  3. Forgotten password feature for the forgetful amongst us ;) 

The Android version of Fitstream is making great progress too and goes into testing at the end of this month. We’re doing everything we can to get this out to you in time for Christmas.

Also, don’t forget to check out our November Fitness Planner to help put you on track towards those goals and also give our article on Self Experimentation a read to use our simple framework to build a stronger, healthier body.

Thank you for using Fitstream. 9,107 users and counting!
