Why would someone want to know this? Let’s elevate the debate and learn all about the second metric displayed by the Pulse’s screen.
Do you wonder how much time you spend exercising? Are you wondering if your fitness has improved through exercise? Tracking your fitness activity through an online training log helps you understand your fitness activity, and provides motivation and accountability. An online training log can also give you the tools to achieve your health and fitness goals by accurately planning, tracking, and analyzing your daily exercise.

According to Cisco, by the end of 2013, mobile Internet devices will outnumber humans. In the US, 25% of Internet users are mobile only. It is ostensible that a shift from a traditional desktop – Internet experience to a mobile device is furiously underway. Mobile is disrupting many industries, and creating efficiencies within the industry. Health and fitness is an industry that is growing as a result of the mobile experience.
Companies entering the mobile market must choose a path to deploy their mobile presence. Wells Fargo, Starbucks, Quicken are examples of companies that use mobile to extend the user experience to the mobile device. The app for these companies does not generate revenue but rather creates value through convenience and brand extension. Juxtapose are companies that are app centric where the app is the business and revenue is created by the app using one of the traditional revenue models; in-app purchase, freemium, advertisements.
I will apologize in advance for this lengthy blog post and founders picture. There is an excitement at Addaero as we near the Beta release and with this release there is so much to say! In terms of the picture, blogs are more interesting with pictures and this was taken in 2005 on the Kokopelli trail the same year we started Addaero.

A little history, Addaero was created in 2005 to address a need in the coach based training market. At that time, the coach – athlete interaction was very inefficient and lacked process. A coach used email, MS Word/Excel, paper, or an online training log to provide training plans to their athletes. Online training logs in 2005 were hard to use, poorly designed, and clunky. MS Word/Excel, paper, and email were very inefficient and time-consuming. These forms of delivering training plans did not allow for two-way communication between the coach and the athlete.
