Fit for Green Console Program Update

Posted on November 4, 2014

As mentioned in previous posts, work has started on the new Fit for Green console program. This video is a short glimpse of the user interface to help give the stake-holders an idea of the data and the tracking that will be provided in the first version.

In the coming weeks we plan to have a set of milestone accomplishments that we will use to lead us to a working beta.  Once we get an approximate date locked down we’ll be looking for candidates to try it out!  Ideally we’ll get to place it in a local university gym for 30 to 90 days so that we can gather feedback and make improvements before releasing the first version.

Click on the picture to view the demonstration and watch for more updates in the coming weeks!

The installation at Sacramento State University started in November and we just finished up last week after a long delay in the procurement of the necessary displays.  We partnered with ReRev again during this install.  Read more

Big Data from Fitness-generated Electricity?

Posted on February 9, 2013

For the last 2 years we have tried several different approaches in attempts to create momentum in this market and yesterday marked the beginning of yet another change.  It was our first time addressing an audience where we positioned the notion of the electricity being a secondary benefit of fitness generated electricity instead of the primary.  Part of the reason that this market has been sluggish is because of expectations for huge payouts on the electricity generated by the people.  It is not Read more
