MYXfitness Is The First At-Home Fitness Brand to Integrate National News, Plus a Full Suite of Revolutionary Content On Its Platform

MYX’s member research shows content variety outside of structured workouts is becoming an important factor in what people crave as they tackle fitness at home. While on-demand, one-on-one coaching is essential, catching up on the news, virtually exploring an exotic locale or discovering motivational content, might be what the day calls for. MYX Media provides members those options and more, while still integrating heart-rate data as a powerful measure and motivator.

“Adding MYX Media to our one-on-one coaching and customized heart-rate training, further positions MYX as the most personalized experience in at-home fitness,” says Heberto Calves, President of MYXfitness. “The fitness-tech industry at large seems disproportionately focused on the competitive, ‘workout to win’ consumer. The MYX content and experience speak to the 58% of the market that identifies as ‘workout for life’. These consumers are looking for real results for real life and have asked for options, beyond coaching content, to stay motivated and engaged. MYX Media provides those options and redefines what people should expect from the at-home fitness experience.”

At launch, MYX Media will include:

  • News Streaming: Straightforward, opinion-free, 24/7 news from MYX’s partner Newsy. This partnership allows members to conveniently stream the news to stay informed on important headlines, while squeezing in a workout from the comfort of their own home. For Newsy’s full programming lineup, visit newsy.com/tv-schedule/.
  • Mat Chats: Original interview series with industry and subject-matter experts hosted by MYX Coaches. The series explores fitness, health and wellness topics that the MYX community will learn about together. It empowers members with information, tools and options on a number of subjects ranging from debunking nutrition myths and healthy relationships to sticking to your fitness goals and sleep.
  • Coach Diaries: Intimate interviews with MYX Coaches who share personal stories about their real lives to strengthen the bond between coaches and members. In each episode, a MYX Coach reveals how fitness and movement helped them get through personal obstacles like body image, sobriety, divorce, anxiety and more.
  • Scenic Rides: A series of exotic, scenic rides for virtual travels to far away locales such as New Zealand, Northern Italy, Hawaii and more. The timed rides offer an immersive, self-paced alternative to coach-led workouts with amazing views as you pedal across the Pacific Northwest, Costa Rica or the Chilean Patagonia.

Trump says he feels better, but his chief of staff says he is ‘still not on a clear path to a full recovery.’

Mr. Meadows called into Fox News on Saturday night, knowing the president was most likely watching, and praised his “unbelievable courage” and “unbelievable improvement.” But he also confirmed that Mr. Trump’s condition on Friday was worse than originally described. “Yesterday morning we were real concerned with that,” Mr. Meadows said. “He had a fever and his blood oxygen level had dropped rapidly.”

The mixed messages only exacerbated the confusion and uncertainties surrounding the president’s situation. During their briefing on Saturday, the doctors refused to provide important details and gave timelines that conflicted with earlier White House accounts and left the impression that the president was sick and began treatment earlier than officially reported.

Two people close to the White House said in separate interviews with The New York Times that the president had trouble breathing on Friday and that his oxygen level dropped, prompting his doctors to give him supplemental oxygen while at the White House and transfer him to Walter Reed where he could be monitored with better equipment and treated more rapidly in case of trouble.

During the televised briefing, Dr. Conley said the president was not currently receiving supplemental oxygen on Saturday but repeatedly declined to say definitively whether he had ever been on oxygen. “None at this moment and yesterday with the team, while we were all here, he was not on oxygen,” he said, seeming to suggest that there was a period on Friday at the White House when he was.

Dr. Conley likewise appeared to indicate that the president was first diagnosed with the virus on Wednesday rather than Thursday night, before Mr. Trump disclosed the test on Twitter early Friday morning. While describing what he said was the president’s progress, he said Mr. Trump was “just 72 hours into the diagnosis now,” which would mean midday on Wednesday.

Just two hours later, the White House issued a statement it said was written by Dr. Conley trying to clarify. “This morning while summarizing the president’s health, I incorrectly used the term ‘72 hours’ instead of ‘Day 3,’” it said.

Dr. Conley also said that on Thursday afternoon “we repeated testing and, given clinical indications, had a little bit more concern.” Late that night, he said, “we got the P.C.R. confirmation that he was” positive. Mr. Trump attended campaign events on both Wednesday night and Thursday without wearing a mask and gathering hundreds of supporters who likewise were not taking precautions against the virus.

Presidential Physicians Don’t Always Tell the Public the Full Story

“He is suffering from the teeth,” Bryant said. “That is all.”

Bryant was the president of the New York Academy of Medicine and would later serve as the president of the American Medical Association. His credentials were unimpeachable.

And so the next day, the papers dutifully reported that Cleveland was suffering from nothing worse than a toothache, and the nation was reassured.

But Bryant had lied. Cleveland was in fact very ill.

In late June, Bryant had examined a lesion on the roof of Cleveland’s mouth and declared it a “bad-looking tenant.” The doctor recommended it be removed immediately. But Cleveland didn’t want the public to know he was ill, so the operation was performed on a yacht owned by one of the president’s friends.

In a 90-minute operation, a hastily assembled surgical team, sworn to secrecy, removed the tumor, along with five teeth and much of Cleveland’s upper-left palate and jawbone. The procedure took place entirely within the patient’s mouth, so that no external scars would betray the operation.

Cleveland eventually recovered, and the truth would not be known until long after he died, in 1908.

Cleveland insisted on keeping his condition secret, because he didn’t want to alarm the public. At the time, the nation was mired in an economic depression now known as the Panic of 1893. If the public knew he had cancer, Cleveland believed, the stock market would crash.

Cleveland, like all presidents, was also loath to appear weak in any way. (This is especially true of the incumbent, of course.) Presidents have an almost pathological need to appear vigorous, regardless of any infirmities. And if they can’t appear vigorous, then they try not to appear at all.

That was the case with Woodrow Wilson. On October 2, 1919, he suffered a massive stroke at the White House. The left side of his body was paralyzed. It was a pivotal time for the country: The Senate was debating whether the United States would join the League of Nations. According to the historian Robert Ferrell, “The president should have resigned immediately.” But rather than resign, Wilson went into hiding inside the White House, even concealing his ailment from his own Cabinet. His physician, Cary T. Grayson, announced that the president was merely suffering from “nervous exhaustion.” For the next four months, Wilson conducted virtually no official business. The United States never joined the League of Nations.

Donald Trump has been less transparent than most presidents about his health. His trip to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center last November remains shrouded in mystery. He is also prone to exaggeration. Harold Bornstein, the doctor who attended Trump before he became president, wrote in a 2015 letter that the then-candidate was in “astonishingly excellent” health and would be the “healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency.” Bornstein later insisted that Trump himself had dictated the letter.

Jillian Michaels’ Fridge is Surprisingly Full of Cheese

  • Jillian Michaels shared a full fridge tour with WH, detailing the foods she can’t live without
    • Packed full of different foods, some of her staples are slightly more surprising than others
    • Michaels has always said it’s about moderation when it comes to her diet, stating that no foods are off limits but there are ‘common sense’ choices to be made

      Outside of being a former WH cover star, global fitness icon, mum of two, Jillian Michaels is also a… cheese addict? Go figure.

      Showing us around her fridge, Michaels dished on her favourite breakfast combos, why she chooses plant-based milk, and why exactly she has such an enviable supply of cheese. Oh, and why an entire shelf is dedicated to supplements – some for her, some for her kids and some for her dogs.

      Kicking off with her go-to beverages Michaels shares her penchant for a strong cup of morning brew.

      ‘I am a caffeine addict, it allows me to focus more, it improves my athletic performance,’ she says. ‘The key with coffee is that you want it to be organic because coffee is one of the most heavily sprayed edible crops in the world.’ Fortunately for Michaels, one of her investments is in Lucky Jack coffee, an organic brand she drinks two strong cups of daily.

      After that, it’s onto her shaker of pre-blended supplements and oat milk – a new preference developed during (and due to) quarantine.

      ‘To be honest I usually drink coconut milk but with quarantine you can’t find stuff anywhere,’ Michaels explains, going onto share that she doesn’t drink regular milk to minimise the amount of animal products in her diet.

      Then, comes the supplement shelf and buckle up, because it’s a lot. Packed full of collagen, greens powder, krill oil, and probiotics, Michaels admits that this is the one area of her health that she goes ‘absolutely off the rails.’

      Pulling out product after product of health-fortifying supplements, she says what’s on display is only a fraction of what she takes on the reg.

      For snacks, Michaels doubles down on hummus and veggies, organic cottage cheese and various carbohydrates – whole grain bread, gluten-free pumpkin waffles and cinnamon-raisin bagels.

      ‘I’m not carb-free and carbs are not the devil. I have carbs all the time. Whether it’s toast, sandwiches, pumpkin waffles, fruit, apples, or cinnamon raisin bagels that I have with organic cream cheese for breakfast,’ she says, gesturing to her toned abdominals as a marker of carbohydrates being a necessity to building lean muscle.

      Finally, we must ask ‘how much does Jillian Michaels love cheese?’ Well, let us count the ways types. Stocked in her fridge we have:

      1. organic gouda,
      2. organic pepper jack cheese,
      3. buffalo mozzarella,
      4. shredded cheese,
      5. organic goat cheese.

        And that’s just what we saw on camera. A
