Fit Together: How Fitness Goes High-Tech + Social

#sxsw #FIT

Tools like Nike Plus and FitBit, apps like Lose It, Run Keeper, and Skimble, and communities like Daily Burn and Spark People are helping to change everyday workouts from a solitary to a social pursuit. The magic of these devices, tools, and communities enables people to track their fitness, undertake fitness programs, track and share their progress overtime, and learn from peers and professionals. This panel will look at where it’s all headed and what it means for everyday interactive experiences. Conversation will include the provocative question: can the Internet make you fit?
