First social networking fitness app.
We don’t usually provide coverage of a health app, and do not endorse or have any ties to this app, but a game changer was released today.
Capitalizing on the appeal and potential user benefit of social networking, two former Microsoft developers and digital health entrepeneurs today released the first true social networking app focused on the fitness community–Cody.
Cody not only focuses on the user’s performance but also enables forging social connections with like-minded enthusiasts who may want something more than what they can get out of posting their fitness progress on Facebook or Twitter.
As reported by the developers:
“On Cody, you share stories not just metrics. By combining photos, locations, and notes, you can capture your workouts in a vivid and inspiring way. When workouts are rich they kick-off conversations. Our users tell us there’s nothing more motivating than the likes and comments their friends send them after a workout.”
“…your virtual fitness coach, [Cody] is also there to celebrate your milestones and encourage you along the way. He will even provide you with workout suggestions, tailored just for you.”
The Cody website, itself, is interesting. Lots of tips/articles/recommendations.

We have helped thousands of Canadians for decades to cope with the devastating effects of mental illness and addiction.

Homewood Disability Treatment Program (www.homewood.org/disability-treatment-program)
Effective disability management for mental illness must go beyond “managing” disability to include both inpatient and outpatient treatment. Treatment goals must incorporate strategies for successful work reintegration to minimize recurrence and relapse.
The Homewood Disability Treatment Program (HDTP) combines the services available through the Homewood Health Centre – a nationally recognized mental health and addiction treatment centre with the best national network of skilled mental health and addiction treatment professionals through Homewood Human SolutionsTM.

Schlegel Villages are designed, built and managed by the Schlegel family of Kitchener, Ontario. Our motto: “It Takes a Village to Care” lives on.
Canadian owned and operated, our Villages benefit from the Schlegel family having over 40 years of direct experience co-owning, managing and operating Long Term Care and Retirement Communities in Ontario. There are eleven Schlegel Villages housing approximately 2500 seniors. Each Village has a Long Term Care component, with Full Service Retirement Living, Assisted Care, Memory Care and Independent Living options being added in stages.
