Walden recently led a team of Iron Tribe athletes to India to see the wells built with those funds and experience the impact of those dollars at work. Neverthirst is already planning its next WOD for Water event in Nashville, TN on October 26. Iron Tribe athletes are also passionate about American veterans. Iron Tribe Fitness actually created "WOD for Warriors," a national fundraising event for Team RWB .

Like Fitbit's Flex bracelet and its Zip and One trackers, which you can clip to a pair of pants, the device tracks the steps you've taken, the distance you've gone, the calories you've burned, the floors or stairs you've climbed, and even how long you have slept. It can show most of that information on the screen or you can view it through the Fitbit app, which pairs with the tracker via Bluetooth 4.0.

When paired with an iPhone running iOS 7, you see incoming call notifications right on the display. While that feature isn't available yet for Android moved here phones, Android phones have their own trick. With any NFC-equipped Android phone, you can tap the Force to the phone and it will automatically launch the Fitbit app. <br>Source: http://abcnews.go.com/Technology/fitbit-force-fitness-tracker-meets-smartwatch/story?id=20525299

Its not like we are here and the kids are over there, we are actually playing with them. Its a report that would be music for John Stanton, founder of the Running Room, now with 120 outlets across Canada, and co-author of a new book, Family Fitness. After pioneering a store specializing in promoting running as a lifestyle, introducing more than 800,000 people to the sport, Stanton, 65, is now looking to families. He believes the family unit is the last, best hope for beating the obesity crisis. (The federal Public Health Agency of Canada estimates as many as 25 per cent of adult Canadians, 12 per cent of youth ages 12 to 17 and six per cent of kids six and under are obese.) Stanton said his stores have had good success with clinics to introduce adults to running. But clinics for children always turn into drop-off centres for parents to leave the kids. We tried various clinics that centre around kids and the only ones that worked at all were the family clinics, said Stanton, this past week, in Victoria to launch his new book. But he hopes Family Fitness will be a resource to get families thinking of simple little things to be healthy and active together. <br>Source: http://www.timescolonist.com/life/fun-and-fitness-for-the-family-unit-help-tackle-weighty-issues-1.657716
