Recently I wrote a post on some of the features that I thought would make the Freeletics app, great. Well, they’ve already done another upgrade and have incorporated a couple of important changes based on customer feedback. Significantly, they now include the videos for warm-up and cool-down exercises. Also, you can now manage your [...]
If you were to do a search online for clichéd vocabulary and phrasing used in marketing and business you’d find no shortage of list as long as 100 entries. But it is clear that no one is reading these lists, or no one seem to care that they are using trite vocabulary and platitudes. Frankly, [...]
What is Freeletics?
It occurred to me that I have posted my updates on my experience with Freeletics (you can find my progress pictures here) without explaining what it is. In the simplest terms I can muster, Freeletics is an exercise program that uses your own bodyweight [...]
Those of us who studied in the American secondary school curriculum, can pat ourselves in the back for our superior, enlightened and humanistic views of religion and religious fanaticism. After all, hadn’t we learned about the dangers of mass delusion through reading reading Norman Mailer’s The Crucible? A pedagogical double whammy since it addressed the literal witch trials [...]
I have started week 8 of Freeletics and I already feel like my remaining 7 weeks are not going to be enough. I want more! I’m a little addicted and not afraid to say admit it. I’m also a little in love with the athletes they use for the demonstration videos. So [...]
Could Freeletics be the exercise program that finally pays off?
Seven weeks ago I started Freeletics. I am not sure how I came upon it, but three key elements convinced me to try it : It uses no equipment other than a pull-up bar, it has a realistic time frame (15 weeks), and I was impressed with [...]
I have never looked for my next read among best seller lists; most of the books I have read past my scholastic years have found me, not the other way around. And come to think of it, that is the way all my relationships have started. Which should flatter everyone I’ve loved because I [...]
I have seen this drink so often on the shelves of every health-food, organic, or trendy coffee shop, that I often felt curious about it. Fortunately the name was enough to keep me far from it. Then I read on the Mayo clinic’s website:
“Kombucha tea is a fermented drink made with tea, sugar, bacteria [...]
Two days ago I started the Whole30 program. If you haven’t heard of it, it is a 30-day introduction to the Paleo lifestyle. I don’t use the word diet, because its proponents are committed to it for life. The scope and rules of this 30 day challenge can be read in “It Starts with Food” by [...]
En France, on écoute souvent les gémisses des ceux qui pensent que la langue Française est en imminent danger d’être envahisse par l’anglais. Il existe — bien sûr — des lois promulguées (loi Bas-Lauriol) avec le but de diminuer (dit décourager) l’usage d’anglais dans l’affichage public, ainsi forçant à l’agence publicitaire de offrir [...]
