[ CANCELED ] One Million Steps (Wearables + Hike)

CANCELED:

Unfortunately, the weather tomorrow is going to rain us out! We are going to CANCEL the event to avoid trail damage. We'd still love to hear from Frank Overton, and get our wearable tech conversations on, so let's try again on Friday if weather permits. I'll followup with an email later this week with details.

 ===

Join the Health and Adventure Tracks as they kickoff a week-long exercise competition. Bring your wearable tech and get ready to rack up some high scores, starting with a group hike up the beautiful Chautauqua trail. Prizes at the end of the week for the most active achievers.

We'll have Frank Overton, Founder of FasCat, joining us and leading a wearables discussion prior to the hike. Perhaps the first wearable tech device he used (way back in 2001) was actually a rideable device, the powermeter which measures a cyclist's power output. What horsepower is to a car, power output is to a cyclist and Frank used his science background to apply this emerging field of sport science to making FasCat Athletes faster. 

More about Frank:
Before Frank caught the cycling bug he was going to go to medical school. Post college he spent two years researching nerve regeneration in spinal cord injuries at the Bowman Gray School of Medicine. However, during grad school (Physiology, continuing to studying spinal cord injuries) the pull of the mountain bike and Colorado was strong.  So he moved to Boulder to race bikes and work in biotech. One patent and a unfavorable clinical trial later, Frank started his own company to coach cyclists and race his bike at a professional level.

Employee Wellness
Limited Capacity seats available

You’re a supervisor -- it’s your job to cultivate a high performing team and great culture, but how? It’s easy to improve output, happiness, and culture; so come learn how to implement a wellness program at work.

You’re an employee -- your wellness is your livelihood. Let’s talk strategy. We will discuss how to convert your supervisor into an ally for implementing a wellness program at work.

PARKING: If driving to the event, all attendees will need to park in the overflow lot west of the 4001 Discovery Dr. The lot is on the right facing the west and is not cleary marked. This is due to CU doing paving. Then enter 4001 Discovery Dr to the left atrium and then proceed to Ignyte Lab on the 2nd floor northest, N290. 

For alternative transporation, The Stampede Bus runs down Arapahoe then up Colorado stopping just outside of the building.
