How Did He Know? Derek Tye

Let's be honest - sometimes chemistry can mess a girl up.  Pretty much from puberty on us ladies are at the mercy of our constantly changing body chemistry.  There's puberty and the teen years, pregnancy, post-pregnancy, middle age, perimenopause and of course menopause itself. And it's not just us that are affected by it.  Boyfriends, husbands, lesbian partners, kids and friends can be impacted.  Some women go through debilitating days because of our hormones.  Wouldn't it be great if there was something out there that could help our family and friends be supportive of us?  Well, our guest Derek Tye has developed a mobile app that can help.  Using custom data for individual women the app can track her cycles and offer suggestions for the support person in anticipation of some of those bad days.

One of the newer ideas in weight loss is that you should change your workout periodically.  Apparently muscle memory works to improve efficiencies in your movement.  So working the same routine teaches your muscles to consume less energy and thus your weight loss becomes less effective.  Plus changing the routine focuses can keep up interest level.  Which is one of the biggest reasons people don't stick to a workout.  This idea can also work for the health of a business.  Tune in to our interview with Lance Atkins one of the second generation of owners of Beechmont Racquet & Fitness.
