Each issue we will highlight Fit Tips & Healthy Living tips from the SEAT Community.

Healthy Living Tips from Bill Schlough, CIO at San Francisco Giants

1) Weigh myself every day and regulate exercise/diet daily based on what the scale tells me

2) Minimize impediments to exercise--keep a pull-up bar, perfect push-ups and running shoes at home and in my office, never be more than a mile away from a gym (home/work/travel)

3) Prioritize exercise whenever I travel, especially without kids.

4) I use an app called "Habit List" to track my top five priorities every day. It's a manual process, but serves as a constant reminder to exercise, spend time with my kids, show appreciation to others, stay on top of email, etc.

5) Live by Kate Moss' creedo: "Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels" (my wife calls this the anorexic's creedo)

6) Finally, my personal philosophy in life that applies to fitness and career" "Always be hungry--physically and mentally." I love the feeling of being hungry and hate the feeling of being full.

Fit Tips from Tod Caflisch, Sports & Entertainment Professional

"Cardio ..." or "Not Cardio ..."

Those on FB with me will understand. Those of you not connected please connect with me. My contribution for this issue is how important a part diet plays in general fitness.

I work out pretty regularly but until I got my Fitbit I had no idea where I was making diet mistakes. As I'm a big "you can't manage what you don't measure" guy, I faithfully log everything I consume.

Here's an example of a diet eye opener for me:

At the Red Wings they would open a concession stand for staff lunch with pretty healthy options but also served cheese cake. And I love cheese cake.

But when I found out each slice was 250 calories and it took me about 8 seconds to eat it turned out to not be worth it. I'd have to spend 30 minutes on a treadmill to burn 250 calories so the cost/benefit balance was way out of wack.

I've found other modifications like replacing soft drinks with water as well which have helped. It's a lot of little things that add up to make a difference.
