Building tools

Humans are tool builders and we build tools that can dramatically amplify our innate human abilities. 

Steve Jobs 

I can’t think of a single better explanation for why it’s so much fun and necessary to make tools for my gym. 

It gives you options, control and with a click of a carabiner can change the adaptation and outcome. 

That’s essentially what any tool in the fitness industry needs to do. 

If you spend money or time on a tool. It needs to amplify your effort. 

Be it squats 
Be it blood sugar monitors
Be it step counters 
Be it gyms 
Be it a coach 

What does spending time with the tool do? Does it amplify your effort. Does it disproportionally improve the outcome? The tool must make itself indispensable. If you spend an hour and money on something, it must result in a better outcome. And better is always tangible. Better removes constraints.
