Science has proven that exercise habits are contagious – and working out with motivated friends is often more effective than going it alone. So Sprintcrowd took that concept further…
Several studies have shown that we are influenced by others’ healthy actions. A study published in the Journal of Social Sciences showed participants tended to mimic others’ exercise habits.
In a separate study in The Journal of Obesity found that overweight people lose more weight when they spend time and get motivated with fit friends who exercise regularly.
Simply put: Workout buddies and coaches help people reach their fitness goals faster.
Sprintcrowd – Move Connected
Sprintcrowd was designed to help people change their fitness habits in a supportive, social online environment.
With a variety of engagement features accessible anywhere and anytime, the app encourages people to become more active regardless of their goals, age, or fitness level.
1. Virtual and remote exercise sessions that progress in real-time with real people over a set distance or time frame.
2. The excitement of competing against colleagues in a virtual event that measures milestones and metrics along the way.
3. Workouts that can happen anywhere.
4. Diverse activities and classes that vary in length and effort, make it easy for people of all fitness levels to join in and enjoy the experience.
Strength in numbers
Sprintcrowd tracks everyone’s progress so that coaches can monitor each other’s progress in real time – even when you are not physically near them.
The app commentary allows the user to hear how everyone else is doing during a workout too, which creates an incredibly motivational experience for everyone involved.
Everyone taking part in a run or walk can track their own distance, pace, cadence, and interval summary and observe their achievements on a personalised leaderboard.
When participants finish a workout, they get a notification informing them how they stacked up with a view of their stats. If they miss a scheduled session, they will be gently nudged via the app to hit their weekly exercise goals when they can find the time.
Benefits for every type of user
Live sessions progress in real-time and can be joined from anywhere in the world and are designed so that everyone can participate and feel comfortable. No matter what fitness level you are at, there are activities to suit.
Whether users wish to train for strength and conditioning, flexibility, stress relief or weight loss – live sessions help them achieve their movement goals.
All activities and classes vary in length and effort, so anyone of any fitness level can not only join in, but also benefit from the guidance and motivation of the coach’s commentary, and also participate in the social interaction of the group.
Since fitness and energy levels can fluctuate – if someone is not feeling motivated to exercise hard one day, they can dial back the intensity of their workout without being ‘penalised’ on the leaderboard since all of the activities are rated using relative effort (not pace).
Coaches that inspire
All participants are encouraged to take their fitness and health into their own hands, no matter their level or where they are in their fitness journey, knowing that they are not alone in their journey. Sprintcrowd uses a team of fun and engaging coaches to liven up the experience of working out and to encourage everyone to get involved. One session might be motivational, while another might be about fitness or well-being.
Coaching professionals are highly qualified and can guide users through scheduled workouts by tracking metrics like time, pace and distance.
The motivating nature of exercising with both coaches and other people in real-time, makes people feel part of something bigger when they exercise. It is a lot of fun.
