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: Self-healing coating made of corn starch makes small scratches disappear through heat

Due to the special arrangement of its molecules, a new coating made of corn starch is able to repair small scratches by itself through heat: The cross-linking via ring-shaped molecules makes the material mobile, so that it compensates for the scratches and these disappear again.

Superficial micro-scratches on the car body or on other high-gloss surfaces are harmless, but annoying. Especially in the luxury segment such surfaces are...

Im Focus: Stellar cartography

The Potsdam Echelle Polarimetric and Spectroscopic Instrument (PEPSI) at the Large Binocular Telescope (LBT) in Arizona released its first image of the surface magnetic field of another star. In a paper in the European journal Astronomy & Astrophysics, the PEPSI team presents a Zeeman- Doppler-Image of the surface of the magnetically active star II Pegasi.

A special technique allows astronomers to resolve the surfaces of faraway stars. Those are otherwise only seen as point sources, even in the largest telescopes...

Im Focus: Heading towards a tsunami of light

Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology and the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, have proposed a way to create a completely new source of radiation. Ultra-intense light pulses consist of the motion of a single wave and can be described as a tsunami of light. The strong wave can be used to study interactions between matter and light in a unique way. Their research is now published in the scientific journal Physical Review Letters.

"This source of radiation lets us look at reality through a new angle - it is like twisting a mirror and discovering something completely different," says...
