Collecting data about the state of your health and fitness has no value if you don’t plan to act upon the results and make the necessary changes to improve them.
Personally I like to keep things simple – a pair of high quality training shoes, a hat if I’m outdoors, and my cell phone and house key tucked into an armband are all I need. I also track my workouts in Evernote and have Spotify Premium for offline playlists.
