Saturday, July 22nd, 2017

Personal Trainer Push UpsIt is said that you have to spend money to make money, and in the case of business promotion this is generally (but not always) true. Even products that practically market themselves, like the iPhone or iPod, have massive advertising campaigns behind them to ensure that every person on the planet wants to run out and buy them. Of course, you don’t need to spend the millions on advertising that Apple does.

The Best Video on Demand Platform for Fitness

Thursday, January 5th, 2017

So I was out on the Interwebz looking around at strength training videos and your typical YouTube martial arts fights, and I got to thinking about how annoying the ads are and how much the video quality sucks. There are some cool channels like Muscle Madness and Strength Wars but ultimately most of the videos on the web are slow to load and often the quality makes them hard to sit through. Worst of all is when videos are taken down, leaving dead links and video embeds scattered around the web, including Project Swole best exercises.
