Who says technology can't make you fitter? Exercising more, Getting Healthier, and Enjoying life
Presenter: Anthony Caruana - Technology writer and past iMug President
Regular IMUGERS will know the great presentations that Anthony has provided in the past. However, amongst the many topics over the years, we have never been exposed to technology helping us in such a personal way. Who doesn't want to be fitter and enjoy life more. Technology is here to help!
A don't miss this great evening!
No matter where you turn, there's a TV show, news story or nagging friend or relative telling us to lose weight, exercise more and get healthier. And the motivations are pretty high. As we live longer, long-term quality of life is a serious concern for all of.
Technology has often been seen as making us less active but the tide is slowly turning. There are apps and devices that we can use to support us as we endeavour to improve our lifestyle so that we can live healthier lives for longer.
Technology writer and past iMug President Anthony Caruana has, over the last two years used a number of apps and devices to change his lifestyle. In January 2013, he weighed close to 110kg and couldn't jog for more than 30 seconds without needing to stop. Today, over 20kg lighter he has run from Dromana to Cape Schank (over Arthurs Seat), completed several half marathons and is preparing for his first full marathon.
One of the key tools in making this journey has been technology. Anthony will walk you through the apps and hardware he has used, telling us about the successes and failures as well as what the future of health technology might hold.
