Do you Exercise? Do you want to exercise more? Do you want to get fitter and meet great people along the way? If any of this sounds interesting to you, this blog post might be worth the 5 minute read.
This is our sixth part special on the FitFlick Blog where we share with you, what FitFlick is, how our app will work and how you can use it to improve your health, fitness, and social lifestyle. This week we’re talking about FitFlick and Exercise, and how you can use the FitFlick app when we launch to improve your exercise game, or just add more fun to your exercise routine.
When looking at the most popular sports/physical health activities people participate in here in Ireland, physical exercise rules them all where roughly 12% of people mentioned it as their most popular form of sports activity, ahead of GAA at 4% to put this into perspective. That’s a lot of people! Yet, so many of us exercise alone. So many go to the gym alone, jog alone, lift weights alone, cycle alone and so on. The odd exception is where we have a personal trainer or coach to help and guide us on our fitness journeys. Here at FitFlick, we believe that the gym or doing exercise shouldn’t be such a lonely experience. As humans, we are inherently social beings and we believe health and fitness activities should not be an exception to this. So how are we changing this?
We’re calling FitFlick a Social Fitness App. An app that will help people find and connect with other like-minded people in their area. So, you like jogging? Yet you jog alone around your local park or block. Chances are, on your jogs you pass by several other joggers, all jogging alone. Well, why not connect with one of those other local joggers? Why would you connect – we’ve put together a little list explaining the many benefits of having a fitness or exercise buddy. As well as the motivation you get from having a fellow fitness buddy, the social experience alone is a rewarding one. There’s nothing better than finding another person that’s into the same activities as you, #InstantFriends. For example, I play tennis, I recently moved to another city and of course had to make new friends, new colleagues new everything. But I still couldn’t find a tennis buddy. After several months, over a few beers I found some people who played, and now I’m back in the game, playing the sports that I love. However, wouldn’t an app like FitFlick have made my tennis buddy discovery much quicker? Yes, indeed it would have.
One of the best parts about the FitFlick App, we want people from every sport and health/fitness activity to use the app. You like Yoga, sure, sign up and meet local yoga enthusiasts. You like five-a-side football, sign up and find people in your area who already know the best sports for a game. You like rock climbing? Well then connect with someone who does too and share your experiences, make new ones and better your technique! You like to exercise, well connect with people near you who are also exercising regularly, get tips, advice, share yours and get fitter with together. The list and possibilities are endless once you start to utilize the FitFlick app.
Setting up a profile is as simple as 1,2,3. We’ve tried to make it as simple as possible by integrating Facebook sign-up. the steps couldn’t be simpler:
- Download FitFlick
- Sign-up through Facebook
- Flick left or right
- Connect and motivate!
Anyway, we hope this short and sweet article helped you understand FitFlick a little more and specifically, how you can use the app when it’s released to find your next awesome fitness buddy! Stay tuned, in our next post we’ll be getting sport specific!
Psssst, here’s a sneak peek of our iOS App. Android is in development and we’ll be releasing them both near you very soon.
