Simon Wegerif of ithlete joined Chris and I of the TPN CES live broadcast. ithlete is a program that will help you on monitoring your body before and after a workout. If you are stressed out or not getting enough sleep, your exercise routine might not be as helpful.
The My ithlete program is an accessory app that attaches to your finger. You build up a baseline to give you an idea of how much exercise to do. If you see a green light, its ok to do an intense workout. Red light says you might want to recoup a little more.
The finger sensor was co-developed by the University of Sydney. A published report of the U of Montgomery found the app matched up ECG and medical setup diagnosis for athletes and their workout schedules.
For $85, you can get the sensor and app to start monitoring your vitals. To find out more, check out myithlete.com

Its been a couple weeks, but we wanted to let you know about whats happening at TPN.TV.
We had another team meeting last week to try and get stuff nailed down. While productive, we still have a lot of work to do and only a month to do it. From which streaming company to use to how we are setting up the booth this year — lots to discuss…
It’s time to start sending out T-shirts to those who have already donated. In the next 2 weeks I’ll be getting out emails so you can get your shirt.
Only ONE available. With this backer level, you will be a daily sponsor of the live stream. Your 60 second call to action script will run 6 times during that day.
This is a great level for a SMB who plans starting a podcast, because you will get time from Podcast coach Jeffrey Powers to set up and get your podcast running. (Must supply travel and hotel if more than 50 miles away from Madison, WI).
