Echo Point, Blue Mountains.

During the past week we’ve discussed a number of great links; on Google+, Twitter, Facebook and so on. Here are a few of my favourites.

  • Essential Anatomy : Fantastic piece of software. If anatomy’s central to your business (trainers, coaches, physiotherapists and medical practitioners) and OS/X is your platform of choice, grab this. And if you just want to check out the incredible 3D imaging engine behind it all, grab Essential Skeleton for iOS. Absolutely free.
  • Your Brain On Music : The research continues into music and the brain. What do you listen to before, during and immediately after your workouts?
  • Employees Asked to Share Diet and Exercise Data : An interesting move; curious to see what happens long-term. Question : when an employee leaves, can they take everyone’s data – or just their own?
  • The Promise of Deep Brain Stimulation : Andres Lozano takes a look at conditions such as Parkinson’s, Schizophrenia and Depression; and how Deep Brain Stimulation might just be able to help. Nice one.

There were also a number of things discussed on the Straight to the Bar Community pages, and in the daily ‘Paper‘. However you like to get your dose of ‘What’s happening in the world of fitness?‘, we’ve got you covered. Swing by.

Ever Tried Kettlebells?
