Technology Fitness Mashup or if you prefer my slavishly copied slogan, “Get fit or die trying”. At TechMog we usually focus our efforts on the technology and not our actual selves but we think now is a great time to show how passionate we are with all latest tech. Not just from the likes of Google, Apple and similar companies but also how we use tech in our daily lives.

The kind folks over at Virgin Active has reached out to a friend of mine Niran over at Yinn & Yang to take part in a blogger challenge and he only had one condition, that I joined him on this challenge. You can follow the whole campaign at #BeYourPersonalBest.

The challenge is to complete a triathlon, however neither of us swim so we will be training for a duathlon consisting of a 2.5km run and a 10km bike ride. Being a techie I will be using as much technology as possible to complete the challenge and boy does this fitness club have a lot of tech.

The gym we’ll be training at is just awesome! It’s Virgin Active’s flagship and most luxurious health club in the heart of London City, boasting iMacs, iPads, a concierge service lounge, private meeting rooms, Wi-Fi, spa, pool, space age gym equipment and much much more.
