Half of the children in the study ranked in the top 30% of fitness (as measured by a treadmill test) for kids their age and gender; the http://issuu.com/maxworkoutspdf/docs/free-max-workouts-pdf-download other half ranked in the bottom 30%. Other than that, the kids in both groups were basically the same in terms of socioeconomic status, ADHD symptoms and scores on an intelligence test. In both groups, about half were boys and half were girls. The children spent one day using iPads to learn the geography of the fictitious maps. In some cases, the learning was reinforced by short quizzes; in others, there was only memorization.

Fitness experts hail Nyad's feat as reward for fit life

Basically, it makes the Nike FuelBand double as a watch. Fuel is the most useful, and most confusing of the functions. Fuel is an arbitrary measure of your overall activity based on some arcane Nike algorithm. Its hard to say what it actually measures, or what it actually means. However, you can figure out whats average for you, and you can compare that with whats average for others, so it serves as a reasonable tool for measuring activity from that perspective.

Should fitness gadget makers fear the iPhone 5S?

Now fabulous is swimming from Cuba to Florida. That's a huge difference." Smith is a competitive skater on the verge of 60, which places her, like Nyad, firmly among the estimated 78 million baby boomers who, defined as the group born between 1946 and 1964, make up about 26 percent of the U.S. population, according to U.S. Census reports. "Bruises take a lot longer to heal, and it's harder to build and maintain muscle but, guess what, you get it back," Smith said about boomers. "We know that you can maintain a lot more muscle mass than we thought." She said mental toughness, surely a factor in Nyad's success, comes with experience.

Wearable Fitness: Nike FuelBand vs. Jawbone UP

Trust me, it's hard truth I still can't quite except. To that end fitness devices such as the Fitbit Flex and Jawbone Up provide calorie counting as a staple component of their companion mobile apps. Fitbit's solution is the more robust of the two, though. Just enter foods (and serving sizes) from the company's online database, or create your own entries, and the app provides a running calorie total. Log your meals quickly with the Fitbit app. (Credit: Brian Bennett/CNET) While the iPhone 5S's internal hardware doesn't specifically tackle this task directly, though I admit it would be a neat trick, the Apple App Store offers a vast array of software billed to handle similar duties. Calorie counter advantage: iPhone 5S (or any smartphone) Comfort and practicality The million dollar question, though, is whether using your phone for an exercise tool makes sense at all.

'Zumba Fitness World Party' preview: Total Globetrotting Workout

While 'Fitness Core' was user friendly, 'Zumba Fitness World Party' is notably more approachable, putting the franchise's world music appeal at the forefront. Those of you who buy 'Zumba' video games out of reflex will be pleased to know that this latest installment will retain the series' core gameplay, progress tracker, and class mode. How 'Zumba Fitness World Party' differs is in presentation. It's comprehensive cast of famous instructors like Gina Grant have been filmed in crisp HD instead of depicting dancers as uncharismatic polygonal models. Better yet, they each perform their specific dances in the context of both authentic music and high definition backgrounds specific to each region. Taking a page from classic rhythm games like 'Bust-A-Move' and 'Parappa The Rapper', the backgrounds change based on how you perform.
