Hello! I’m excited to reveal my new bodyweight strength training app: Strong by Bodyweight.
Why I built it: As a personal trainer, I’ve used a lot of training apps out there to train clients (Trainerize, PT Distinction mostly). But as a bodyweight strength coach, I was never happy with them. The biggest problem for me was a poor way to track progression and scaling for bodyweight exercises, which aren’t as straightforward as exercises that use weights incrementally. So I made an app that suits my needs!
- Beginner Bodyweight Strength Training Program with 4 phases
- Exercise tracking that includes sets, reps, RPE, Progression, and Scaling.
- Exercise Videos
- Calendar showing your past completed workouts
- Weigh-In tracking
- Progress Photo tracking
- Tape measurement tracking
- On the back end, I can create programs and manage clients.
Current State and To-do: Currently, it’s still just a progressive web app (I can’t afford to make it a real app at the moment). I’m pretty happy with how it has turned out - I worked a long time and went through several iterations.
In the future, I’d like to add better workout logs, more programs with better videos, and backend improvements that would let me train people with custom programs.
I might also add a community/forum (currently using discord, which would be hard to beat), client messaging, and push notifications.
And finally, I may attempt to add scheduling of the programs in the future. This has turned out to be pretty difficult in Adalo. I have a semi-functional prototype of this, but it’s a bit too clunky for my liking. May need to wait for certain features to be added.
I AM IN NEED OF BETA TESTERS!
I need people to use the app, let me know what they think, what I should improve, and attempt to break it. If you would like to test, just click the link and make an account in the app. I would be very grateful for any help
