Introducing NerdFitness.tv!

shelbytv:

We’re so excited to be working with our friend Steve Kamb at Nerd Fitness to produce NerdFitness.tv!

Check out Steve’s post below for more details…

It’s an exciting time to be a Nerd Fitness Rebel!

Our goal at Nerd Fitness is to eliminate every potential excuse you might have for not getting healthy.  We’ve covered how to eat right, how to work outhow to be more productive, how to walk, run, and hike, how to do a push up, how to do your first pull up…but we still get one issue above all others:

“I just can’t seem to get motivated!”

I hear ya.  Some days, you just don’t want to get out of bed.  Other days you come home from work and that couch looks MIGHTY cozy.  Another round of Halo or Modern Warfare 3 sounds way more enjoyable than exercising.

Which is why we’ve created our own freaking TV channel!

NerdFitness.TV is born!

Nerd Fitness TV

A few weeks back while traveling through New York City with my boy James Clear, I had a chance to sit down with my friends Reece and Chris atShelby.TV

They’ve created an awesome video platform that lets people watch and curate their own channel of the best video they find all around the web (content from YouTube, Hulu, ESPN, Vimeo, etc.).  It also gets smart about content you like and don’t like, showing you the stuff you need to see and getting you back to the real world so you can keep kicking ass.

The SECOND I saw what they were building, a light bulb went off in my head: “We need to have a Nerd Fitness TV channel with an epic motivational videos playing ALL the time.”

The guys at Shelby agreed, and thus – Nerd Fitness TV was born :)

When you visit NerdFitness.TV, you’ll see my personally selected list of motivational videos that will make you want to run through walls, do a million push ups, walk to Mordor, and exercise around the world.

Anytime you are EVER in need of motivation – visit NerdFitness.TV, watch a video or two, and then go have the workout of your life.  It’s guaranteed to add ten pounds to your squat and make your Spartan war cry 15% more epic.

The Next Steps

This is just the beginning.  We’re fortunate to be one of the first sites to partner with Shelby, so there are a handful of features that they’re in the process of implementing.

Over the next few months, you’ll see NerdFitness.TV evolve  in a few different ways.  I can’t hint too much about what’s coming, but I promise it will be cool. 

If you’re interested in getting and curating your own channel on Shelby, you can request an invite at http://Shelby.tv or email nerdfitness@shelby.tv for an invite.

If you happen to struggle with motivation, today you no longer have any excuses.  NerdFitness.TV – you’re welcome, Rebellion!

Leave a comment with your personal favorite motivational video or any features you’d love to see added to NerdFitness.TV, and the NF team and I will select the best ones to add to the channel!

And don’t forget, we’re just getting started.  

Nerd Fitness TV is going to rule. Hard.

My personal product goals for Shelby.tv have never been to make people watch more video (note: this includes TV, of which the average American watches 5.3 HOURS/DAY!). My goals are to… 

  1. Open people up to the discovery of your world through video. It’s more than just YouTube. It’s more than just cat videos. I promise you.
  2. Help you watch the right content. Video that’s relevant to you and your peculiar interests even if that’s less content overall. (Yes, I want to build a self-limiting product, especially if it means viewers see less junk!).
  3. To share media that inspires our Shelby viewers to do awesome stuff and make the world a better place.

NerdFitness.tv is just a tiny first stab at that. A place for those inspiring fitness vids that will get you OFF the couch. 

Check it out, get inspired, kick ass.
