WESTFIELD, N.J., Feb. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Continuing the momentum created by its breakout issues, American Athlete Magazine, one of the preeminent digital sports and fitness publications, announced today that its Winter 2014 issue is here and ready for download. The newest issue (American Athlete Magazine Winter 2014) is available on iPad; it can be found in the App Store for Apple iPad and the store in Apple's Newsstand (via iPad).
"The enthusiasm for our brand, content platform, and extended media has been phenomenal," said David Fink, founder and publisher of American Athlete Magazine. "As always, we have included interviews and insights from athletes at all levels of competition for this issue. It is filled with educational features and inspirational stories, and capitalizes on the interactive platform to bring a unique and entertaining tablet/digital experience."
American Athlete Magazine Winter 2014 issue's cover story, "Showtime in Sochi," examines the XXII Olympic Winter Games—the world's largest and most-anticipated international athletic competition. American Athlete presents an introduction to the sporting events and some of the athletes who are competing, including gold medal contender snowboarder and half-pipe specialist Greg Bretz. 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.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
