Cadence App allows you to pick music that matches your running cadence.
Want a great frame by frame video camera to analyze your gait?
The Casio Ex-FH100 is a great point and shoot camera that can shoot 1000 frames per second videos. The camera allows you to view your running, golf swing, or cycling in slow motion and frame by frame. I have this in my office and I carry it with me to the golf range to observe clients. It’s a must have for serious athletes who want to perfect form and prevent injuries.
