Is catching them all getting the public in shape?

It’s bigger than Tinder, going to be bigger than Twitter and is probably going to save Nintendo after that terrible thing called the Wii-U. Pokémon Go is huge. But what does it have to do with us?

Well as a happy side effect of more or less everyone who once had a Gameboy colour playing this ridiculously popular game, it seems more people are walking. Our lovely web developer @beardedjack_ even said “I don’t need a fitness app, I’ve got this”; and indeed he isn’t the only one to mutter such an idea.

Yes, in case you haven’t heard, Kai Greene, “Mr Getting It Done” and Phil Heath’s greatest rival, will NOT be competing at Mr Olympia. The exact reasons aren’t 100% clear but already a few rumours are circulating.

man eats 14540 calories of ice cream

That’s a lot of ice cream!

We love a good eating challenge. They seem to go hand in hand with fitness, which is strange, because it’s normally about eating well and just eating enough. But fitness can also be about weight gain, and that is what this guy had in mind.

Tough Mudder is a lot of fun. You get mucky, you challenge yourself and you even get a drink at the end. There have been warnings of faecal matter being mixed in with the mud, but this takes the biscuit.

Nice’s Côte d’Azur doesn’t seem so “nice” any more.
