The Fitbit CreedWe are Fitbitters. We are Ultra Flex-ible: we battle weather, injury, fatigue, traffic, loose dogs and loose gravel, and keep going. Some eat Special K; many run 5K’s or 10K’s. We don’t just walk in neighborhoods, we Surge through Zip codes. No One has to Force us to recall why we want to get fit. We get a Charge out of that syncing feeling. And wherever we walk, run, lift, rebound, zumba, spin, plank, swim, TRX or crossfit…or whatever we do for fitness…we’re always in a good Aria!

DSCF0451Also learned this: keep your cool! Less than a mile in, two guys dumped right in front of me; I got mad, “flew” past ‘em—and spiked the left hamstring! Told my hurt hammy two things: “25;” and what my CrossFit & Olympic lifting mentor Jimmy Baker says: “C’mon now, I know you got it in you,” and enjoyed the rest of the flight…
