The FiTS app now offering cooking videos as it expands its concept for long-term behavior modification


The FiTS app, a unique motivation program created by vitaliberty, was launched in early 2018. FiTS offers its users customized support for integrating fitness into their everyday lives on a long-term basis. In addition to its training companion and customized motivation strategies, FiTS now also offers recipe videos produced by its Hamburg-based partner FOODBOOM to help users enjoy more fitness and wellbeing.

Original recipe ideas that make a healthy lifestyle fun

On top of the articles about health topics and helpful motivation strategies designed to support users in establishing long-term fitness habits, FiTS now offers a number of original recipes created by the Hamburg-based company FOODBOOM. Both FiTS and FOODBOOM want to help make healthy and multi-facetted meals more accessible to people.

Their cooking videos explain how the dishes are prepared in a straightforward and uncomplicated fashion. Users can quickly and easily try out fresh new recipes which can make a long-term contribution to improving their well-being.

The selection features something for every palate and every diet while also taking food allergies into account — choices include a delicious wild-garlic risotto, a hearty burrito bowl and a fresh asparagus salad.

To further reinforce the partnership between the two companies, members from the FiTS team were on site at FOODBOOM's festival WE ARE FOOD in Hamburg on June 28. Together they discussed the industry's trends and future with other marketing professionals and start-ups.

"We are delighted to have gained FOODBOOM as a competent partner at our side when it comes to dietary matters. Working with them lets us offer our users simple but creative recipes they can cook themselves and enjoy healthier meals," explains Björn Sternsdorf, head of product FiTS.

Sebastian Heinz, co-founder of FOODBOOM, agrees: "We are always pleased when we have an opportunity to share our love of good food and our expertise in the field so that people's lives can be better and happier."

Im Focus: 'Nanochains' could increase battery capacity, cut charging time

How long the battery of your phone or computer lasts depends on how many lithium ions can be stored in the battery's negative electrode material. If the battery runs out of these ions, it can't generate an electrical current to run a device and ultimately fails.

Materials with a higher lithium ion storage capacity are either too heavy or the wrong shape to replace graphite, the electrode material currently used in...

Im Focus: Happy hour for time-resolved crystallography

Researchers from the Department of Atomically Resolved Dynamics of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg, the University of Hamburg and the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) outstation in the city have developed a new method to watch biomolecules at work. This method dramatically simplifies starting enzymatic reactions by mixing a cocktail of small amounts of liquids with protein crystals. Determination of the protein structures at different times after mixing can be assembled into a time-lapse sequence that shows the molecular foundations of biology.

The functions of biomolecules are determined by their motions and structural changes. Yet it is a formidable challenge to understand these dynamic motions.

Im Focus: Modular OLED light strips

At the International Symposium on Automotive Lighting 2019 (ISAL) in Darmstadt from September 23 to 25, 2019, the Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP, a provider of research and development services in the field of organic electronics, will present OLED light strips of any length with additional functionalities for the first time at booth no. 37.

Almost everyone is familiar with light strips for interior design. LED strips are available by the metre in DIY stores around the corner and are just as often...
