About the Project

Many people often get discouraged from going to the gym when they do not see their hard work paying off on the scale or mirror. This app will be created to help encourage and motivate individuals from a different aspect. This App will easily track all of your workouts with the weight and number of repetitions you do per exercise. By doing so it will ensure that you continue to push yourself and track your added strength overtime. This in turn will help motivate individuals to keep going to the gym by seeing their progress displayed on graphs/charts to see their progression over time. My goal for this App is to motivate individuals to not give up on their fitness goals and give them motivation through a different approach which in turn will transfer to results in the long run that you will be able to see physically.

Reality Check

  • Claim:

    This App will easily track all of your workouts with the weight and number of repetitions you do per exercise.

  • Reality:

    The app, no matter how designed, will require the input of information. This same process is relatively easy with current notes app of any phone/device.

    Sticker with Logo

  • Reality:

    The reward for the $20 given toward the Progressive Overload does not even give you access to the app. It only promises a sticker that does not arrive for 5 more months.

Bottom Line

The idea behind the app. Progressive Overload, is one that is thoughtful and may be fueled by the fact that the founder is a Fitness Enthusiast. However, the logo that is used for this campaign is not original, please see the link at the end of this paragraph. Keep in mind that when you support this project, you do not receive access to the app itself, but instead a sticker that takes 5 months to receive.
