A quick story of how I came upon creating this app. I was obese most of my life. At age 19 I weighed 365 lbs and had basically hit rock bottom. It was at this point in my life, that I finally woke up. I closed my eyes and began a journey. Nearly two years later I had lost over 200lbs and changed my life forever. I then became a personal trainer in order to help others and fight obesity. This however wasn't enough and I knew I had to do something more. My answer came with The Fitness Games. My business partner Joseph and I created TFG to help people improve their mental and physical health. It is our mission to use The Fitness Games to reach millions and help them change their lives for the better.
Welcome to The Fitness Games! The premiere fitness app that takes FITNESS, GAMING, and SOCIAL MEDIA and ties them into one life-changing experience. The Fitness Games takes exercise and turns it into a game. You can challenge anyone, anywhere, to any type of workout, proudly post fitness photos and videos, or simply challenge yourself with one of the many kick-ass workouts designed by our personal trainers. With our app, friends in all countries are able to compete and even connect via GPS to track each others progress in real time.
Each user can create their own workout or choose from over 50 personally crafted workouts to challenge themselves, a friend, or a random opponent from anywhere in the world. Workouts are divided into four categories: Cardio, Strength, Full-body, and Cross Training. Each category operates on a unique scoring system that was carefully designed to determine how hard the user exercised to determine the winner of each match-up. Points earned during challenges can be used to level up in The Fitness Games as well as unlock free workouts! All workouts performed are tracked, scored, and saved so the user can see their progress over time.
What makes The Fitness Games Unique, is that there is no app
on the market that actually lets you challenge people head to head
to see who worked out harder. Many apps claim they do this, but none
come close. For example, there are apps that claim to let you challenge others when in reality all they do is let you compare your results, None of these apps actually have a
point system that gives you points based on how hard you worked out.
Our app gives points for weight lifted,
compared to bodyweight as well as other factors that determine
points you actually earned with your activity. The Fitness
Games lets you challenge people to anything whether is is a push up contest, individual lift,
full body workout, cross fit, anything!
The Fitness Games is also the only app that allows users to run or
bike in real time. This means you can challenge someone in a different
state or country and have them running with you on your phone! We are the only app that gives you an actual virtual running buddy.
The Fitness Games is the only app that lets you create your own
custom exercise and workout. Our design for this feature is simple,
unique and effective. Because of how we designed our app, this feature
is especially useful for trainers, group instructors, coaches, and
PE teachers. As long time personal trainers ourselves, Joseph and I
know that when our clients aren't with us or are on vacation, it is
extremely difficult to give them workouts let alone make sure they do
them. The Fitness Games allows a trainer to create a custom workout
with photo and video for each exercise and send it to their clients.
The app will notify the trainer when the client has completed the
workout and give them a statistics page of how well the client
performed. This way the trainer can hold the client accountable and
have everything tracked and at their fingertips. All the sets, reps,
exercises are tracked and saved in both the trainer and clients
workout calendar. The Client can also post their results on their
newsfeed in the app aas well as twitter, instagram and facebook,
which enables the trainer and others to like, comment, and encourage
them for their hard work and success.
PE instructors can challenge students to workouts. The app is designed
like a game in the sense that it gives you points. It will be fun
and motivational for kids and can help get them be active and fight
Personal trainers can send their clients uniquely crafted workouts via our “Create Your Own Workout” feature and track their progress remotely.
Each user has their own "My Profile Page" where they are encouraged to post fitness pictures and videos and other users are able to post comments.
