Keep your own personal trainer in your pocket

You just have to look around town to see that personal fitness has become one of the boom industries of the 21st Century. Every time you turn your head there seems to be yet another fitness centre opening up where all the old DVD stores used to be. It's a sign of the times. What’s more, every second person you meet seems to be a personal trainer. Mind you, if you wanna sign up with one, you'll find them pretty expensive. There is however, a much cheaper way to get all the benefits that a personal trainer offers without having to take out a second mortgage on the house.  More

Veganism is the practice of abstaining from the use of animal-derived products with an associated philosophy that rejects the commodity status of sentient animals.

A trip to the supermarket however, often turns into a nightmare for vegans, because of the often confusing ingredient labeling on many of the items. Vegan Scanner lets you scan the item's barcode with your iOS or Android's camera and get ...  More

Why cannabis vaporizers are the new black

There has been plenty of rubbish talked about the use of marijuana over the years. While it has been used medicinally for centuries to help relieve stress and to stimulating the appetite the arguments about legalizing the herb have got a bit mixed up with the anti smoking lobby. Which is fair enough. But it's not the cannabis that's bad for you - it's the 111 toxins that are unleashed on your body when you light it up that are the things that are going to cause you damage. Vape Nation is a health and fitness application centered around the business of cannabis vaporizers. The 'Vape' gives ...  More

The only fitness app with real, live, human, personal trainers

Many of us dedicated to getting our fitness back on schedule tend to go down one of two tracks these days. We either go the whole hog and hire a personal trainer to guide us back to a fitness regime we can handle or we invest in an app so that we can monitor our fitness ourselves. The only trouble there is that the cost of a personal trainer is pretty high and most apps tend to take a 'one size fits all' approach and assume everyone is at the same level of fitness to begin with. truTrainer combines those two different approaches by having real live personal trainers available on your very ...  More
