3 Must-Have Tech Devices for Today’s Fitness Professionals

Posted on September 22, 2017 by John Harris

Fitness-ProfessionalsFor many fitness professionals, offering the best possible experience to your clients is a top high priority. This often means guaranteeing clear and quick results, providing an enjoyable and unique workout regimen, and offering great customer service. So how can you gain that competitive edge?

These days, technology is able to create greater efficiencies and effective processes, including in the health and fitness sector. In fact, in a 2017 study, the Fitness Industry Technology Council argued it’s vital for fitness professionals to adopt and embrace technology in their offerings and services.

Looking to better harness technology at your gym? Here’s a look at some devices you can offer your clients to achieve a better overall health and fitness experience.

1. Body Composition Analyzers

As you may be intimately aware, tracking your clients’ weight on a traditional scale doesn’t always provide an accurate reading to promote better health. That’s because it can be difficult to determine whether your clients’ weight and mass is made up primarily of muscle or fat.

But body composition analyzers like the InBody 570 can provide you and your clients with a variety of measurements, including body mass and fat readings as well as hydration and muscle mass levels, through a few simple steps.

Having this technology literally at your fingertips not only provides better transparency to your clients, but also provides more credibility to your work as a fitness professional, as you can make adjustments based on client readings and show a clear return on their investment.

How Betting Lines Work In Sports Betting

Posted on September 19, 2017 by Jaxon Pescott

sports bettingFor beginning sports gamblers, betting line can be confusing to understand. Unlike point spreads, which are concerned with who wins and by how much, a moneyline is solely dependent upon who wins. Moneylines are used most commonly in low-scoring games like baseball or hockey, but they may also be used in boxing and other sports.

Here is a guide on how actually betting lines works in Sports Betting.

1. What is Betting Line?

Before we start with how betting lines works, it is more important to understand what actually betting line is? Betting line is a not as complex as people think but still it throws the average person off and deters them from wanting to learn more about sports gambling. Betting lines are wagers that are made against the line. Line, is a number assigned by the bookmakers which handicaps one team and favors another when two teams play each other and one is perceived as being more likely to win.

For example, if the bookmaker believes Team A is a 10-point better team than Team B, the bookmaker can handicap Team A 10 points. The line bet becomes Team A to win by more than 10pts or Team B to get within 10 points. Both outcomes should be of equal odds roughly $1.90. Read the rest of this entry →

Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen suffered broken foot in their week two win over the Bills.

This article outlines the most important players from the National Football League who got injured in the second week.

  1. Greg Olsen, Tight End for the Carolina Panthers

Olsen suffered an injury to his right foot in the game’s first half, and limped off to the locker room without a shoe on that foot. He was initially declared likely to return, but was then declared out as the second half of the game began. He was next spotted on crutches, with his right foot clad in a walking boot. After the game had finished Olsen let reporters know that his foot was broken, and he will not be able to play for some time.

  1. Marshal Yanda, Offensive Guard for the Baltimore Ravens

Yanda sustained an injury to his left ankle, and it was questionable whether or not he would be able to return. He was then declared out, and, when the game wrapped up, John Harbaugh, head coach for the Ravens, let it be known that Yanda has fractured his ankle and will not be able to play for the rest of the season. Ravens fans are likely to turn their attention to rugby league betting tips for the rest of the season!

  1. Garett Bolles, Offensive Tackle for the Denver Broncos

The Broncos’ starting left tackle suffered an injury to his left leg, and had to be taken off of the field in a cart in the third quarter of the game on Sunday. Bolles, the first-round pick for the Denver Broncos in the April draft, hurt his leg on a five-yard run by Jamaal Charles, after his leg was pinned to the ground. There were fears that Bolles had broken his ankle, and he is set to undergo further tests. He has been seen wearing a walking boot in the meantime. Read the rest of this entry →

RV Make Move to Preserve Caulfield Cup

Posted on September 18, 2017 by Roland Fuller

caulfield_cupRacing Victoria is set to make a move to preserve the Caulfield Cup the much enjoyed Spring Cup Carnival feature by making dramatic changes to the manner in which the Cup winner is penalized in the Melbourne Cup, which follows 17 days later.

No More Penalties to the Caulfield Cup Winner!

As of this spring, the winner for the Caulfield Cup will no longer be penalized again if the animal has already been allocated a minimum of 56 kilograms. If the winner of the Cup has less than that in the Melbourne race, any possible re-handicap will no longer take the horse’s weight for the Melbourne Cup beyond that mark.

Horses with More Than 56 Kilograms Suffer in the Melbourne Cup

As punters who enjoy both Caulfield Cup betting and making wagers on the ensuing Melbourne Cup will well know, the Racing Victoria General Manager, Greg Carpenter, said that the past 40 years have shown that it was made difficult for a winner of the first Cup to be placed in the second with a weight of more than 56 kilograms.

The issue surrounding the Caulfield Cup penalty has been thoroughly discussed at the Victoria Racing Club, Carpenter went on to say, and everyone remains of the opinion that it is totally appropriate for the Caulfield Cup winner to be penalised if the handicapper wishes to do so. He added that, on the bases of research done as a handicapping panel over a period of 40 years, it has emerged that it is without a doubt very difficult to win the Caulfield Cup race, and then 17 days later run the Melbourne Cup with more than 56 kilograms.

Posted on September 18, 2017 by Scott Huntington

Any child will tell you how much fun a trampoline is. In fact, you probably experienced the joy of trampolining when you were a kid too. It turns out these fixtures of the childhood backyard are more than just an activity for kids on a sunny afternoon. They’re also an ideal accessory for an intense workout.

Launch-Trampoline-Fitness

In fact, the American Council on Exercise says that a mere 20 minutes of jumping up and down on a mini trampoline gives you just as much of a workout as a 20-minute run. The only difference? Most participants found bouncing to be a much more fun way to work out than pounding the pavement.

Need more incentive? Here’s how trampolines can help you reach your ideal fitness level. Read the rest of this entry →

      In recognition of the start of football season, the Sports Then and Now Vintage Athlete of the Month is one of the original stars for the defending Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots.

      In many ways, Gino Cappelletti epitomized the early years of the American Football League. While the NFL was becoming more specialized and tougher to break into, the AFL provided former college stars with a new place to play and its “wild west” mentality allowed players to contribute in a wide variety of ways.
