Road to Canadian Nationals 10 Weeks Out Update Video

Time for another update and there are some topics I wanted to share with everyone. I have been rather busy working on a project over the last month and a bit converting a 40 foot shipping container into a new office and airgun shooting range. This has taken up a lot of my time and energy since I have been doing most of the work with a a little outside help here and there... Well for the most part the inside is all done and it's move in time. On a positive note all the extra calories I have been burning working on this project have really helped to shed some of the fat :) Maybe even a little too much this early on? With the CBBF Canadian Nationals 10 weeks out, I still need to put on some muscle before I get into hard cut mode.

Moving on to the Actofit Fitness Band, so far it has been really durable and does for the most part a good job at being a fitness tracker. I was hoping to get right into the activity or exercise tracking right away but as I quickly found out, you need to train the Actofit Fitness band first by recording yourself doing each exercise you plan on having it track. This was a bit of a shocker for me since this would require several days of setup as I do literally a different exercise every workout every day of the week. So I may plan on splitting my review for the Actofit into tow parts, the first part going over basic fitness tracker usability and then when I have time later on I will record some exercises into it and see how it does in terms of tracking exercises, reps and sets.

Actofit Fitness Tracker Unboxing First Impressions

Most fitness trackers these days pretty much track all the same dynamics, stuff like step counting, sleep tracking, heart rate tracking and basic overall activity. One area most of these fitness trackers don't seem to track very well are actual weight lifting workouts, they simply don't understand what your doing since it is not step based and unfortunately even the built in optical heart rate sensors don't work well for tracking your heart rate when you lift weights.

Here is where the Actofit Fitness Tracker may just have something up its sleeve to fill in this weight lifting gap where most activity trackers fall short. The Actofit Fitness Tracker is the world's first fitness tracker that automates comprehensive workout tracking & provides actionable insight. Using machine learning algorithms Actofit goes deeper into advanced motion tracking to identify 75+ exercises, count reps, evaluate form, measure heart rate, calories burned and more to auto-log comprehensive sessions & granular workout statistics; allowing you to evaluate data to make informed decisions.

I will be testing the Actofit Fitness Tracker over the next couple weeks and see if it can really back these claims and actually perform as promised.

You can checkout more info on the Actofit Fitness Tracker over on their website and pre-order one.
