Ad Blocking Isn’t The End Of The World

Great deap analysis on this difficult topic- definitely worth reading:

The only way to preserve and grow the free web is to change how and when ads are served. True innovation requires plucking ads from mobile devices and serving them in a smart way: at times and in places that are desirable and valuable to the user. It means understanding the user in his or her mobile life, and using that information in the physical world to add value and respect privacy.

Freeletics – the world is your gym

Great concept that I discovered 5 months ago, I immediately bought it as it’s exactly what I was looking for.

I use to be a calisthenic practitioner since 2 years and a half, but I was looking for some training methods to overcome the traditional “plateau effect” and simply to get some motivation. Training alone is sometime hard to keep the momentum and to maintain the quest for progress. Freeletics has both the technology and the community, enriched by content coming from experts in sport, nutritionists, and of course, members of the community/practitioners – “free athletes”.

The app available on both iOS and Android is the key companion as you’ll get your full program available and also your coach for your Work Outs. All (quite) social networks are covered: Instagram, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, G+… Thanks to this large presence, you have all your chances to find friends and connect with other Free Athletes anywhere.

After 5 months of practice, I am happy to confirm my satisfaction with the program, it has really helped me being more consistent, I am training on average 3-4 days a week, so once every 2 days, the coach is definitely worth as I don’t want to manage myself my program, so yes, I am convinced !

Last but not least, I love the integration of social networks and the full approach, “millenials oriented”, the business model is very clever and I think efficient as the mix between IRL meetings/trainings and all online support available is well balanced, so hoping that Freeletics will be there for long !
