As February hits, and more and more time separates consumers from the healthy resolutions they made as the New Years ball was dropping, the motivation to get fit begins to fade away, according to Golds Gym Fitness Institute Member and National Fitness Expert Jamie Eason . That demotivation, coupled with a side of frustration from not getting the results they want quickly enough, can often be the dumbbell that broke the camels back for consumers leading many to abandon their New Years Resolutions by mid-month. How did Golds arrive at the date of February 18? Easy. They simply researched all of their member check-in data for the last four years from Golds Gym locations across the country more than 400 clubs in the U.S. and tracked the numbers.

Apple Hiring Fitness Physiologists, Sleep Experts On The Heels Of Recent iWatch Rumors
31 report from the website about Apple working on a new dedicated health app called Healthbook for possible inclusion in its next major iOS iteration, iOS 8. 9to5Mac speculates that these, combined with recent reports that top Apple execs are meeting with the FDA, confirm the companys intent to enter the health and fitness product market, and that an iWatch riddled with biometric sensors could be the first such device to come to market. So far, Apple has kept mum on all speculation regarding a potential iWatch or any upcoming changes to iOS 8. But Apple CEO Tim Cook did at least acknowledge that the wrist is interesting and natural in terms of the wearable category, but also that theres nothing really compelling already out there in the market to convince an average consumer who doesnt wear something on their wrist to invest in wearable tech. Ive argued in the past that the problem with current wearable tech is that none of it offers something you necessarily miss deeply when you forget p90X3 reviews it or it runs out of battery for a day; Apple may be trying to change that with all this focus on health-related hires, research and development.
