Gymchat 204 - Training & Competing with Google Glass (with Chas Melichar)

Amazing possibilities.


Technologies such as Google Glass look set to change the way a great many things happen. When it comes to medicine, entertainment, journalism and a whole lot more.

What sorts of changes do you think are possible (and even likely) when it comes to the world of strength training? How will workouts change, and the various types of fitness-related competitions available? Discussing this intriguing area : Triathlete, Pilot and Google Glass Owner Chas Melichar; Personal Trainer Kirk Fontaine and You. Fantastic.


NB : I'm very keen to hear both Chas' thinking on these technologies, and yours. If you've got questions or opinions on things like Google Glass, join us on the Hangout. Here's how.
