Workout, Exercise, Fitness and Nutrition Planning for individuals, personal trainers and gyms
This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Thu, June 27 2019 5:07 AM UTC +00:00.
GetSets is an all-in-one mobile app for the Android and Apple platforms that helps you with every aspect of fitness - from workouts to nutrition, training to advice.
We created this app initially just for ourselves - most of our team are budding fitness enthusiasts, and we were frustrated by the lack of consistency and depth of knowledge within other fitness apps.
We set out in early 2019 with a dream to create our own all-in-one tool to help us improve our own fitness and nutrition, and ultimately, our health and lifestyles.
GetSets is the culmination of that dream - a tool for everyone to improve their fitness, irrespective of whether you are a beginner or an expert at working out.
GetSets gives you the tools to manage everything you need to get fit, including:
- Managing your workouts
- Creating and tracking entire workout programs
- Creating and tracking nutrition goals
- Learning from professionally qualified Personal Trainers
- Learning how to work out at a gym safely and efficiently, and having fun at the same time!
- Collaborating with your friends and gym-buddies in a fun way - challenge them to meet and exceed their goals.
Learn more about GetSets and its capabilities below.
GetSets has a wide range of features available, shown below.

Not sure how to do burpees or use a leg extension machine? We all hate burpees, but GetSets has a series of 101 videos built-in to get you started with the right form, in a safe manner.
We all have to start somewhere, and it can be pretty daunting understanding how gym equipment works. Our personal trainers provide a range of videos explaining each piece of equipment commonly available in gyms, specifically for beginners and those looking for a refresh.
Whilst working through your workout or training plan, it is often easy to forget your place and how many reps and sets you've completed.
Available to paid subscribers on a variety of smart watches will be the GetSets smart watch companion app.
The companion app allows to quickly update your rep and set counts on your wrist, without having to pick up your smart phone in what could be an awkward or dangerous position.
With over 300 comprehensive workout guides, our Personal Trainers provide guidance in an interactive form.
Our workouts range from simple starting movements, through to complex combinations, all of which everyone can learn by following the simple guides.
Each workout guide includes:
- Step by step movement guide
- High definition video guide
- Action photographs showing form and progression
- Chart of muscle-use - learn what each workout improves, and focus on areas as you feel necessary.
- Risks and challenges
Before any workout, it's important to warm-up as well, to avoid strain and injury. These are covered as well.
After any workout, it's equally important to stretch and relax - we've got you covered with GetSets.
It is a great idea to mix up your workout sessions - the human body gets used to repetitive action and changing your workout avoids muscle memory.
GetSets includes a Workout Creator that lets you schedule a variety of workouts, created by you, to meet your personal and individual needs.
Workout groups can also be shared with your friends and gym-buddies, as well as with your Personal Trainer, who can provide feedback and guidance.
Save time by creating your workout sessions for each day you go to the gym in advance!
The most important aspect to improving your fitness is to set yourself a goal, and ideally personal challenges.
Want to lose weight? Be able to walk or run a certain distance? Lift more than a cup of coffee or glass of wine?
Whatever your goal is, set it within GetSets to help track your progress.
Goals can be shared with your friends or kept private if you prefer.
Once your goals are set, it's time to set yourself a challenge, or accept one from a friend.
Challenges can be single and multi-day goals, and shared with your friends or other GetSets users.
Perhaps you want to challenge your friends to see who can do the most push ups in a week, or run the furthest, or cycle the longest. GetSets lets you do this simply and quickly.
You can also import and manage your goals via your personal fitness device, such as a FitBit or Apple Watch, or platforms such as Strava.
With a built-in database of over 10,000 recipes, GetSets provides you the tools to find the recipes and meals based on your dietary preferences and nutritional needs.
During many Personal Trainer-led programs, you may be recommended specific daily intakes of proteins, carbohydrates and fats.
These are often difficult to measure and calculate - our recipe database helps by providing comprehensive nutritional data for each meal and ingredient.
As our user-base grows globally, we will be adding more and more culturally- and geographically-specific recipes and foods.
Your Personal Trainer or Nutritionist can also use GetSets to create a meal plan specifically for you or your team.
Whilst not always prescriptive, this is a great tool to help you start with a meal program that suits your goals and desired outcomes.
You can also create your own meal plans, and share them with your group or friends.
The GetSets app is a simple way to track your food intake, calculating important macronutrients ("macros") such as proteins, carbohydrates and fats.
Within the app, chat privately and securely with your friends, gym buddies and workout groups.
If you're using the Personal Trainer services, you can also chat with your trainer at any time via GetSets. It's a great way to keep your workout or nutrition plan on track.
Messaging complements your personal and group challenges - keep the group motivated and challenge yourself and others to push just a little bit harder.
GetSets is building a network of Personal Trainers (PTs) in many countries and regions, starting with Australia, Canada, UK and the USA. As our clients demand, we'll expand this further to other countries as quickly as we can.
Within GetSets, you can book an online Personal Training session - using any one of our trainers (not limited to just your region) - to provide a 1-on-1 personal session.
If you run a Gym, or are a Personal Trainer with a set of clients, you can use GetSets to efficiently manage the training and nutritional aspects of your business.
An online portal is provided to all Gym Managers and Personal Trainers, featuring a wide range of tools including:
- Client management - manage your clients and invite them to use GetSets to increase your visibility of their activities and progress
- Group management - create groups for teams, programs or facilities
- Group activity/program management - build your own workout groups for clients, and track their progress
- Communicate with your clients, entire groups or private groups in real time using the GetSets app
Our Gym and Personal Trainer portal is full of resources to make your life as a coach easier and more efficient.
- Training guides with sample programs
- Database of hundreds of workout programs
- Videos of all exercises, workouts and stretches to help teach clients and new trainers
- Photos and diagrams of all exercises, workouts and stretches to simplify the coaching progress
- Meal creator and nutritional guides
We're a bunch of developers, gym enthusiasts, sportspeople and personal trainers based in Melbourne, Australia.
We are a software development company, and are passionate about apps, as well as our own fitness. Initially based on a desire to track our own personal fitness goals and nutrition plans, GetSets has grown from an internal project to a fully fledged production application that we want to share with the world!
You can learn more about us at our company's web site Kutamo Studios.
Through our many years of fitness training and adventures, we've created a network of industry professionals that have contributed to this program. These team members include:
- Qualified Personal Trainers
- Qualified Nutritionists
- Gym owners and managers
GetSets supports integrations with all major fitness trackers and wearables, including Fitbit, Garmin and Apple Watch.
This allows you to track, often in real-time, your exercise statistics (running, workouts, steps and more) within GetSets. Statistics can be shared with your personal trainer, gym partners or contacts.
We've been creating since the mid 1990's, and Mobile Apps since before they were called Mobile Apps.
Our commitment to our backers is transparency and continual updates. If not more frequent, we'll be posting an update every week with news of the App development process, as well as screenshots, examples and beta versions for our backers to try.
It is critical in any development project to stay in touch with our customers (you!) as often as possible - only with your feedback can any app be a success.
We believe that any data you put into our app, such as your personal goals, workout activities, nutrition choices and all messaging is yours. We are just providing you the platform.
As such, you can export your data at any time into Excel or CSV files, to do with as you please. We don't hold anything back, we don't charge anything for your data, since it is yours to begin with.
Once GetSets has launched, you'll be able to export your data at any time, as often as you wish, using your login details on our web site.
If you are a software developer, or you want a more structured approach to accessing and updating your in-app data, we have a free API available. This is a Restful HTTP-based API, providing you with read and write access to your data at any time, in real-time, and at no cost.
What is this useful for? You may have a wearable device or fitness tracker that we don't yet integrate with - our API can help! Want to export your data on a regular basis into your own reporting system? Again, our API will provide the solution.
Feel free to reach out to us to learn more about developing integrations with the GetSets platform - we'd love to hear from you!
Risks and challenges
Every project has challenges and risks. Making something unique and great takes a lot of time and effort, and we have been working hard and invested a lot of our own money into GetSets. We believe we have something great in our hands, and use it ourselves each and every day at the gym and at home.
As a company we are very fair and committed to treat our customers right, and we will do whatever it takes to meet our deadlines and commitments. We're open and easy to contact. We have succeeded with it so far, and thanks to our experience, we know how to prepare for projects such as GetSets.
We pledge to be transparent about any issues that might affect the delivery of GetSets. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us directly.
