Cardiorespiratory fitness isn’t enough. As we age, our functional abilities decline. If you’re over 40 that should be an unwelcome reminder. But knowing why that is and what you can do about it can help […]

It depends. For those of you that just want know exactly what warmup to do before exercising, skip to the last paragraph. Everyone else: read on! You should always do some sort of warmup before […]
The winter blizzard that rolled through the front range here in Colorado this past weekend was a great reminder of why we love to live here: it’s easy to get out and play, but not […]
If you’re a coach or a personal trainer, chances are you’ve taken an exercise physiology course, or at least basic biology. Remember week one when you went over the scientific method and the difference between […]

On Monday January 14, 2013 we released Addaero 2.0 Alpha – the second generation of our online training log. The Alpha release is the first of many releases for the new Addaero application. Our decision for an Alpha release was simple, we wanted to get Addaero 2.0 in to the hands of our users. Our feature and functionality list for 2013 is extremely looooooong and will keep our programming team extremely busy through the New Year.
We have learned that our users provide exceptional feedback and ideas, this was evident in Addaero Classic (Addaero 1.0) as 75% of the features we released were ideas originating from our users. We felt Addaero 2.0 would be no different. Our goal is to observe how our users interact with and move through the application. Based on these patterns and user behavior we will make the necessary changes to improve the Addaero experience.
