Today's episode is a very special one on the 20 Minute Fitness podcast. And the reason behind this is that we have the pleasure to finally introduce you to our very own season 2. We have been working really hard on this new season in the past couple of weeks and so hope to get you as excited as we are. Let's dive into it, shall we?
The team behind 20 Minute Fitness has decided to take the podcast into a more fit-tech, health-tech direction. Of course this doesn't mean that we will lose our general health & fitness focus, but rather that we'll take it to the next level. We'll be mixing our health & fitness topics with technology. And there are two main reasons behind this.
Reason #1: Technology is the future of health & fitness. It is revolutionizing the industry and is here for your benefit, you just have to learn how to take advantage of it. Hence, we find it important to teach our listeners about the amazing innovations born every day and show how you can benefit from these innovations to reach your health & fitness goals more effectively.
Reason #2: This is the arena we operate in with ShapeScale. This is where are expertise lie. And this is our greatest passion that we would like to share with you guys.
Season 2 - The Fit-Tech Season
Within Season 2 we are introducing not one, but two very exciting new sub-series.
How Technology Can Help Series
Series 1 is going to be our 'How Technology Can Help' series. In each episode we will set a specific and very common health & fitness goal, like losing weight, as our focus. Then we'll introduce a number of tech solutions that can help you in reaching that specific health & fitness goal in a more efficient and better way.
The main goal of this series will be to show how technology can help you along your health & fitness journey.
Why I Built This Series
Series 2 is going to be our 'Why I Built This' series. With a more entrepreneurial spill, we'll be running exclusive interviews with the founders & co-founders of the most extraordinary health-tech and fit-tech companies out there.
Unlike in the 'How Technology Can Help' series, here we'll be focusing exclusively on one amazing health & fitness innovation and the mastermind behind it in each episode. We will bring you insightful and very interesting conversations about the 'behind the scenes' of the given brand and the fundamental issues that have given rise to its products and services.
Before we let you press play, here's a little bit of sneak peak to get you excited.
In our first couple of episodes of the 'How Technology Can Help' series, we will be focusing on health & fitness goals, such as improving your strength training performance, training for your first marathon or getting in better shape. We'll bring you some amazing fit-tech innovations that will get you on track towards reaching these goals.
In our 'Why I Built This' series we'll be interviewing inspiring individuals, like Tim Peck, who is the Co-Founder and CEO of Call9, a health-tech company reinventing 911 and emergency care. We'll introduce you to Gene Gurkoff, who is the brain behind Charity Miles, an app that combines exercising with the amazing act of charity. And Jason Loewy will share how he built one of the most successful nutrition apps, MyMacros+, before even graduating from college.
