Finding your fitness routine

Most of us are fixated on what we can visualize. We ignore the most important words in fitness – anxiety, depression, unhappiness and fear. Negativity – the reason you start and […]

V3 Launch in Mike & Dave’s words

Here we are. Twenty four months in and today we release BodyWise version3. It hasn’t been easy. We’ve worked our normal jobs and toiled over the app morning and nights to get to this point.

How moving neighbourhoods made me fit

I grew up in a nice-enough suburb in the East of Melbourne. Ringwood was a pretty good place to grow up. Safe (arguably), not too small (or too big) and with the kind of people that would say smile and say hello as you walked by. As I grew up, moved out of home and became completely […]

It’s 4:02pm here on a 35 degree (95F) Wednesday afternoon in Melbourne. Dave and I have had our usual day working from my living room where we work on improving our product and making the dozens of little decisions that we’re faced with on a weekly basis. We just realised that it’s been six months since we released […]

An interview with Mike Halligan

Whats your relationship with health & fitness? I was always pretty competitive. I remember playing cricket when I was a kid and creating a database to analyze my batting and bowling statistics over the course of the season. When I got older and broke into the senior team at my soccer club, I’d be the guy scrutinising over […]
