About

You don't have time to hit the gym everyday. You are busy. On days you don't have time to strength train, consider using Fit Reminders. The iPhone application that provides a quick three to five minute workout you can do anywhere and anytime. You can set reminders periodically throughout your day. Setting hourly reminders to complete a three to five minute workout is easy and the minutes add up! You thought you didn't have time to workout? It turns out you do! Three to five minutes every hour for eight hours turns into 24 to 40 minute of exercise. Fit Reminders makes your daily workout fit into your schedule easily and without any planning on your part. 

Realistically, you won't look like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Chris Pratt or Channing Tatum. You will gradually gain more mobility and feel more focused after a quick three to five minute stretch or strength training exercise.

Fit Reminders iOS application sends notifications to your phone to workout periodically throughout your day. The application provides a quick workout with random exercises to complete in one minute intervals. This will be my first application and I appreciate your support! The app has already been accepted onto TestFlight, beta testing with an approval process by apple.

Risks and challenges

It is encouraging that the app has already been accepted to Test Flight, the beta testing path for iOS apps. Those who contribute should expect their reward within a week of their donations.

The amount of information to learn is huge! I might feel overwhelmed, tired, burned out, and like a failure after programming for hours on one problem. To prevent burn out, I will balance the amount of time I spend programming. I will also use a portion of the fund toward physical resources, software and learning tools to help overcome challenges. There is a large community online as well. I have found free resources where programmers communicate about problems and finding solutions. Examples are: Discord, Reddit and Stack Overflow.
