From the gym to home life, there was a lot of ground to cover at CES!
With an app for everything and more apps and wearables becoming available, shopping for a fit tech device can become a little overwhelming. This episode will help you become more conscientious about your tech purchases and what's really out there that's worth your investment.
CES is the world's gathering place for all those who thrive on the business of consumer technologies. It has served as the proving ground for innovators and breakthrough technologies for 50 years — the global stage where next-generation innovations are introduced to the marketplace. Owned and produced by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), it attracts the world's business leaders and pioneering thinkers
CES, formerly The International Consumer Electronics Show (International CES®), showcases more than 3,900 exhibiting companies, including manufacturers, developers and suppliers of consumer technology hardware, content, technology delivery systems and more; a conference program with more than 300 conference sessions and more than 170K attendees from 150 countries.
And because it is owned and produced by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)™ — the technology trade association representing the $292 billion U.S. consumer technology industry — it attracts the world’s business leaders and pioneering thinkers to a forum where the industry’s most relevant issues are addressed.
"On one side, we have technology that's making life easier. On the other side, we still have to remain conscience about our freewill and choice." - Josh Trent
"Training the human body often gets overlooked and it's a stepping stone. People just aren't connected to their bodies like they should be. They want to go all out at the gym or try the latest trendy informational workout just because so-and-so said they had great results. A fit tech device isn't going to give you overnight results. You can use it to aide you in your mission, but it's still your own wellness journey." - Justin Andrews
"Wearable devices give us so much great information, but sometimes it can be too much and it can be a distraction from our health goals. Just because you use a wearable, is it really going to make you change your life? As Dani Pardi has said, "Knowing is not the same thing as doing." Actually, if you know and you don't do, it's the same as not knowing." - Josh Trent
"The data from our wearbles is like a check-in mirror. It forces us to see how we're showing up and that's where the real change occurs. If you want a real life change, just checking in with what you did yesterday to know how you can improve today can be enough." - Josh Trent
"You can measure sleep, but what are all the other variables that are contributing to it like stress? Maybe on paper your sleep looks good, but you have to consider all these other factors. Once we look at all of that, we can create the best plan to move forward." - Justin Andrews
Justin Andrews has an incredible passion to disrupt the personal training industry and create ground breaking programs and tools that fitness professionals and clients alike can benefit from. The fitness industry in general needs a massive face lift to speak more to the generation growing up with a more advanced technology tool kit. Justin’s approach is to create programs that utilize technology as it advances and cut through the millions of options people face every day when seeking specific information relating to their fitness needs. The great thing about where we are today is how easy it is to access information, the bad part about accessing all this information is how much misinformation is out there to weed through. As a health and fitness professional with a proven track record here in the heart of the Silicon Valley, Justin will keep working tirelessly to keep people educated and connected to quality personal trainers long into the future.
