Complementing the cover story is an extended piece, "The DNA of a Champion," focused on Sidney Crosby, the captain of Canada's Olympic hockey team and the Pittsburgh Penguins, who attributes his success to the right genetics, determination and grit.

The recently unveiled issue also includes the following profiles that encourage readers to pursue their own sports and fitness goals:

  • "Armed and Ready with JPP": New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul provides a glimpse into how he spends his days; his thoughts on nutrition, fitness and health; and the blood, sweat and tears that translate into his game-changing fitness abilities.
  • "Bodies in Motion with the Rockettes": The trainer of the legendary Rockettes discusses how the group's unwavering discipline keeps them in shape and on-point as they dance in unison for 45 minutes out of every 90-minute show—four times a day, seven days a week.
  • "Operation Fitness: Mike Torchia": Operation Fitness owner and Elite Fitness trainer Mike Torchia talks about the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle and how that evolved from following his top inspiration, Jack LaLanne. He discusses the "Shape Up America" campaign, designed to motivate people across the country to increase daily physical activity and develop better eating habits.

Additional features include 'Food For Fuel,' nutritional tips from the L.A. Lakers head strength and conditioning coach Tim DiFrancesco; 'More Than A Marathon,' which shares stories of Chicago Marathon runners and their sources of inspiration; and 'The Game Changer,' with professional athlete and actor Mark Eisenhart, who tells readers about the key life decisions that helped him transform his very unhealthy body into one in prime physical condition.

"American Athlete Magazine transcends the traditional sports and fitness publishing model both in the content and experience we provide. Our athletes, trainers, sponsors, partners, and other participants are passionate about sports and fitness," stated Fink. "Our magazine is geared towards addressing their needs with rich content including sports medicine, mental toughness, personal training, human interest stories, nutrition, and other takeaways that go well beyond the routine sports coverage and fitness tips offered in many current industry publications."

American Athlete's expansion is a direct result of its fast-growing audience, which includes its e-newsletter subscribers (who are now in the hundreds of thousands) and Facebook followers (over 11,000) who have shared images and videos of themselves sporting their American Athlete gear. The magazine has garnered ringing endorsements from leading sponsors Body Armor, Operation Fitness, SportsUp and Europa Sports.

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.).

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand.

They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
The current age of digital transformation means that IT organizations must adapt their toolset to cover all digital experiences, beyond just the end users’.

Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure.

Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...

The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
