About

Our goal is to create a high quality fitness app that will be used by anyone, no matter what the age or fitness level. I have tried using different workout apps but none of them have been appealing to me. They all have too much going on, and its hard to find the right workout. I have even tried using YouTube for workouts. Even though some YouTuber's create high quality workout videos, you have to deal with their intros and them promoting random stuff and so on. Five minutes pass on the video, and they still haven't shown me the workout. YouTube is very inconvenient for this, and our goal is to waste no time while showing off different workouts/activities

I used to be an athlete and play tennis for 10 years, until I had a major back injury during my senior year of high school. This prevented me from playing tennis in college. With this app, I hope I can teach people the right way to prevent injuries and who are passionate about their sport or simply anyone who is wanting to learn a new sport. 

Everyone has had those days, where for the first time, they had an interest in improving themselves by going to the gym. When this happens, 99% of us have no Idea what workouts to do or how to do them properly to prevent injury. On the other hand, some will spend a $100 or more just to get a quick hour lesson with a fitness trainer.

Our app will be extremely easy and intuitive to use. Within itself, it will contain several major sports/activities played around the world (if not listed, they will be added later one). So far these categories would be: Basketball, Football, Soccer, Tennis, Weight-Lifting(Strength Training), Yoga, Swimming. 

All of these categories will have specific drill designed for their sport/activity. For example, if you click on the "Tennis" category, it will show you a list of drills you would need to perform whether it be on a tennis court hitting balls or improving your footwork. It will start off with the basics, how to hold your grip, and then from there how to swing properly and so on. The drills will get tougher, especially because some of them are used by today's professionals. This type of system would be the same for all the rest of the sports/activities. All of them will have specific drills for their sport, from beginner all the way to professional. 

One last example I'll use is weight lifting. You would be able to choose between 7-10 different muscle groups. Those would include: shoulders, biceps, triceps, chest, back, legs, abs and aerobic workouts. If you were to choose biceps as today's workout, it would display all the possible bicep workouts and even recommend some workouts that compliment another workout for maximum efficiency. 

The instructions on how to perform each drill would come in different ways. The whole point of our app is to cut to the chase. It will contain high quality photos, videos and gifs. As you are scrolling through the different workouts you would click on the picture of the workout you like. This would bring you to the specific workout screen where we would show you a gif of the workout, with a quick description of it, including the do’s and the don’ts. For in depth, we would create a high quality video explaining how to do the specific drill. This would be the same for every workout/sport.

The app would have a Free Version, and a Premium Version. With the Free Version, you are able to chose only one sport/activity but you will be able to see all the different workouts for the sport you selected. With the Premium Version, you would get every single sport unlocked. Premium Version would be anywhere from 5$-10$ a month. (Goal is to charge 5$).

Overall the goal of our app is to eliminate the need for expensive fitness trainers and to keep users away from injuries, while performing to their max to stay happy and healthy!

Risks and challenges

Our biggest challenge is budgeting for the app. Hiring a designer to work on the app would be our priority, but I'm also a Software Engineering major so I'll be able to work on it as well.

There are two tiny challenges we'll have to face. One of those would be getting high quality pictures and videos of each workout/activity. The second one would be getting the correct drills. I have been surrounded by athletes and coaches my whole life, and I'm also a professional tennis coach. Personally I don't view these as challenges, but instead tasks that would need to be completed.

One big risk that we have is, will this app get enough traction? If it gets enough traction on Kickstarter than I almost guarantee it would do well on the app store as long as the marketing is done well.
