Sports performed by true athletes gives me motivation to pick my lazy self up off the couch, get outside and actually do something physical! It's true that it's boiling hot in Florida, and all I want to do is swim in the cool ocean. However, a long evening bike ride or run is not out of the question!

The Olympics are one of the true tests of endurance, talent and self-discipline. Who doesn't enjoy watching the world's best athletes compete at this world famous event? In case you didn't realize it, the 2012 Summer Olympic Games will commence on July 27 in London. We are fortunate enough to have an iOS app made just for this great occasion.
