A website that helps you find gym buddies based on their vicinity to motivate people with busy lives to stay committed to going to the gym. Ideally, would be able to implement compatibility in workout goals, gender preferences, and schedule availability.
We were inspired by the difficult challenge that we ourselves have faced of trying to consistently go to the gym on a busy college schedule. We decided that there is a market for this type of website/app and decided to create it to experiment with designing websites or mobile apps with APIs/SDKs.
Our project takes the client's location and pinpoints it on a map. It also reports the users in the client's vicinity who are looking for a gym buddy as markers. These markers have brief descriptions of the users' preferences.
At first, we were attempting to implement this idea as an Android app. We had never created an app or website before this, and we did not realize that apps are harder to create than we originally thought. Additionally, we spent quite a lot of time trying to utilize the available API to our benefit. We also could not use REST APIs because of our inexperience and were limited to the JAVA APIs of Here.com.
We are proud that we have something available to demo from our project idea. As this is our first hackathon ever, our main goal was to be able to demo something to be judged as well as learn lots of new technologies.
We hope to be able to learn enough web development skills to be able to implement all the functionalities we desired for our product so that we can match users based on compatibility on the factors of time of day users like to exercise, exercise goals, and maybe even gender. Right now, users must look through the other users in the system that are nearby. We would also hope to make the user icons clickable in order to show the information within them, but we could not figure out how to.
