ATTN: NEED MEMBERS FEEDBACK FOR MOBILE APP!

Hi Team Beachbody members!

We are currently starting the design and development of a Team Beachbody mobile app. We know how we might use it and things we might find useful to include in it, but we want to know what you think!

Please post in this thread the top one or two things that you would like a Team Beachbody mobile app to do for you. How would you use it most? If you currently use another mobile app for tracking fitness and nutrition, how do you use it and what is the name of the app?

We want to know, so we can make the best Team Beachbody mobile app possible!

Thank you!

In order of importance:
1. Post my workout in supergym
2. Track my nutrition: see the MyPlate app from Livestrong!
3. Purchase product: and make sue my customers can purchase product from me!
4. Manage my personal profile, goals, buddies

But what I'd really like is a coach office app!

Definitely easy to add super gym workouts. It would also be nice to see subscribed threads from the message boards.

I use My Fitness Pal for nutrition tracking.

1. realtime workout group interaction. Success is better with instant support. Coach's have been using facebook groups to fill this need.
2. wowy gym (working out) and scheduler.
3. Use the app in place of dvd's (audio only workouts?) Its tough to find a hotel gym with a tv and dvd player.

I seen the app for P90X...I want one for Insanity!!! It seems like P90X has a lot more support tools compared to the rest of the programs. emoticon

If nothing else, def an app for WOWY. I am disappointed Beachbody is so far behind with apps.

Thanks for all the replies so far! We are making the Team Beachbody app top priority and we want it to help everyone achieve their goals.

Keep the suggestions coming - we're listening!

I want an app to easily check my group's discussion board posts and my group's wall postings.

I use My plate at Livestrong.com so if you could use the app for nutritional purposes it would be great. This would be useful when you're away from your computer but you want to post a meal.

I also use iMapMyWalk but now there is iMapMyFitness so you can track all workouts on one app. But nutrition can be posted there as well.

Being able to link it to Twitter and/or Facebook is great.

I think the most important thing is to make it for both Android and iPhones. There are too many that are for just one OS and those of us with Androids, like me, can't get them.

I think it'd be awesome to be able to see the discussion boards, have alerts when someone posts to your discussion and have all access to Wowy; that includes scheduling your workouts, logging in to workout, etc.

So glad that this is happening!!! I'm only on my first week but

Make a single app that connects us to WOWY/supergym but allow the addition of connecting add-on apps to it (based upon the program/programs we are doing. P90x.. P90x2.. etc.)

Sync with supergym ([Edited by Touseef]JEFIT PRO for a decent workout app & website comparison. JEFIT Pro even shows crude animations of exercises and is much more than P90x app needs to be if we're only follwing programs or hybrid programs.)

Allow to start Workouts and track progress taking the place of the worksheets.

Show/detail proper form of each exercise from two angles.

Connect with nutrition plans

Track what is eaten daily and plan out meals in the future.

Reminder timer to have snacks every 3-4 hours (and keep other meals from being forgotten about).

Have access to provided recepies in nutrition guide and ability to add our own, once
approved, possibly even share recepies between friends & then add them to our list of favorites etc.

Enable us to order supplements from beachbody.com

I may have to edit this b/c i'm still reading through all the material.

Thanks & Good luck!!

As for another app my wife has recently gotten me to use: "My fitness Pal" helps me maintain accountability throughout my day instead of eating mindlessly. I'd hope that the app developed work work something like this but incorporating the information discussed within the p90x nutrition guide.
A real handy feature is the barcode scanning which pulls nutritional info and adds it for quick & easy editing.
Combine this to automatically show us if we need more carbs, protein or anything else during the day and it'd be great!

I have loved and used the P90X app until recently (postponing workout option cause app to break and lose all data)

- First and foremost! Updates! the app needs to have bug fixes and updates!

- Would like to schedule and track workouts (sets, weight, and cardio time/distance/intensity) as per P90X app but with all beachbody workouts
- As well more customization so i can add additional workouts (with exercises) so i can use it for all my workouts.

I have been waiting for this for a while! very exicted!!

I want to be able to view/update my workout schedule. To see what I have on deck, and also important would be to have the ability to mark it 'complete' in order to enter into the daily drawing.

Post workouts in the supergym. This is a MUST!!! I am always on the go and this would be sooo helpful!

Partner with myfitnesspal. THis is the BEST app for logging workouts, food diary, etc. If it could include a Beachbody tie in, my life would be complete!!!

Thanks,

1) Log and record workouts as well as view your upcoming workouts. Consider programming the app to push notifications to the phone or device to remind users of upcoming workouts.

2) Mobile version of the Message Boards/Chat.

3) Ability to purchase products directly from the app

4) Provide an add on app or login area for Coaches to receive customer leads and notifications of important events (Coach calls, product webinars, training, etc.)

5) Provide the ability to log your fitness test for the Gym.

I am SO glad I found this!

- iphone and android capable
- able to log into WOWY and log my workouts, and have reminders sent to my phone
- access to the message boards
- I use myfitnesspal to log my food, but I have to log my own workouts and calorie burn because it doesn't recognize any beachbody fitness programs
- shopping for products would be a plus
- the ability to have customers/new coaches sign up and buy products
- a coach office app!

That's it for now, I'm sure more will spring into my mind later. Thank you for even thinking about making an app for this!

Here's my wishlist and then information on what I'm using.

1) android compatible.
2) Sync schedule
3) Login to Supergym
4) sync my buddie list
5) download my inbox

Other nice to have features
Tied to message forums, particularly items I've responded to.
Tied to groups I've joined, allow me to read the group wall.
Quicklinks to buddies blogs who have recently updated.
Easy reference for suggested calorie formula (using info about me already provided)


Other apps I use:
- Myfitness pal. I don't use this all the time, but it has a great database of food and info.
- Endomondo. I only use this because I use a bluetooth heart monitor and it records my heart rate. This would be a nice feature for a beachbody program. Tie this to specific workouts in the Insanity schedule and I'm in heaven. emoticon (Calling Insanity "Aerobics" in Endomondo is just wrong on a lot of levels).
