It may seem like it takes a spectacular event of epic proportions to draw me out of my blogging cave, and while that may or may not be true, this is certainly a noteworthy announcement. I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that what I’m about to drop on you is going to be a game changer in terms of the way that fitness information is disseminated to the masses.
Ladies and gentlemen of the interweb, I’m proud to present to you the brand spanking new Fitmarker.com – the brainchild of my homie JC Deen and the one who is well-known in these e-streets as The FitJerk.
The reason I like this site so much is simple – it puts the power in the hands of the end-user. Think about it for a moment: would you rather be forcefed information of questionable quality without any say in the matter, or would you like to play a critical role in deciding what content gets the frontpage worthy thumbs up or the Spartan kick of doom, destined to never see the light of day? That is the premise of this site: if you find a particular piece useful you can “bump” it, and if you think its whacker than an air sandwhich, you can “dump” it.
While this may be a great tool for the personal trainer or strength coach to use in order to get their work in front of the eyes of people who need it, the real winner here is the general fitness enthusiest who is so bogged down in the guagmire of crappy (or even harmful) information out there that they end up doing nothing at all out of sheer confusion. Just like anything in life, the cream rises to the top, and it is my firm belief that this will become a straight up smorgasbord of thoroughly researched, helpful and applicable information that people can actual use.
But enough with the hype. Its clear that I love the concept and implementation, and I think you will too. Give Fitmarker a test drive here – you won’t be disappointed.
