After being selected by the Minnesota Vikings in the first round of the 1993 NFL Draft, running back Robert Smith battled a number of injuries in the early part of his career. However, he finished his career with four consecutive 1,000-yard seasons before surprisingly announcing his retirement after the 2000 season. He walked away to pursue a career in medicine, and also to try to avoid any serious injuries.

Oh, and he had a bit of an acting career, too. (La la la.)

But in addition to the time he spends with ESPN and his other ventures, Smith has now launched a health app for mobile devices called Fan Health Network. According to Zack Pearson at the Sun-Times Network:

. . .allows fans to track athletes as well as sports personalities workouts, diets and more all on their smartphone. Users can receive tips from well-known athletes on how to improve your workouts and diets. You can also interact with other users and compete in challenges for some cool prizes including tickets to the ESPY awards this year.

The app is available for both Apple and Android products.

There are a whole lot of health apps out there for folks that want to work out and get in shape. Hopefully this one can find its place in the market.
