If you train steadily, with diligence, in order to reach goals (not just to vent stress) you must be considered an athlete. One could disagree with my definition, related to training for achieving results, but surely there is something that every athlete (especially professionals) shares between them: the way they perform in order to reach the training goals.It’s all about training and mental approach. If you’re a champion, you are because you have the mentality and the training of a champion. There is an anecdote about Tim Grover, one of the greatest NBA coaches; at the end of every match he used to ask Michael Jordan:...

This should come as a huge sigh of relief to anyone who’s shelled out a few hundred bucks for a fitness tracker – multiple studies have proven that the devices actually deliver on their promise of keeping their wearers active and fit.

Trainers, meet the Pokémon GO Plus wearable! Starting September 16, Pokémon GO players...
