Hi everyone, I really enjoyed this podcast. I want to get into fitness more. Thinking of buying the second gen applewatch when it comes out. I alreadyw alk outside a lot and use a rowing machine but things can always be better. I would like to know more about really accesible fitness apps. I did try fitstar once and some other video fitness apps but i find them really difficult if you are totally blind even though the interface itself is accessible. I am going to try the carrot app later but would like to know if there are others, to excersise without a machine or personal gym. Thanks again. Greetings, Anouk,
