Recording comprehensive metrics about your workouts or runs used to be the domain of only the most dedicated athletes. But today, wearable fitness trackers have turned everyone into a health coach. You can track how many steps you take, your heart rate, and even how much sleep you get at night. But is that information accurate?
I’m embarrassed to say that this was my first year venturing out to Vegas to attend CES. The conference hardly needs an intro, but each year 150,000+ from the tech community fly to Las Vegas to show off some of the latest and greatest technologies we should expect to see over the coming year.

Do you remember the earliest Fitbits? Back in 2010 my family equipped itself with the old school Fitbit One for a basic steps challenge, where all accountability, competition, and encouragement were refreshingly outside the app universe.
Most of the coaches and professionals we’ve met through our journey with Nudge were introduced to the idea of using health tracking apps with clients because of Fitbit. So it only makes sense that we should dedicate a full post to exactly how you can use Fitbits with your clients to make your health coaching business (or fitness business, wellness business, etc.) better.

One of the most difficult things for any trainer or physician is to keep their clients engaged. After all, a client who comes to you is looking for a solution to a problem they have: they’re overweight, they’re not feeling well, or whatever it may be.
