In a nutshell, PerFIcT is a social fitness app that allows personal trainers to run their training business on their mobile phone. Trainers can sell fitness programs, create custom plans for clients, have their own social profile, and more. As an exerciser, you have access to thousands of programs from certified trainers and can filter through them to find the best program to meet your needs. Instead of going to Google trying to find what exercise is next, you can now purchase a plan from a certified trainer at a fraction of the cost that you would pay in the gym. The app guides you through photos, videos, and exercise descriptions. Simply swipe to the next exercise and when you're done the app automatically records all your results in a journal!
There are almost 1,000,000 personal trainers on Earth (Statista.com). PerFIcT is the first app that allows any certified personal trainer to sell their fitness programs and one-on-one training all on their mobile phone through our revenue-share model. Personal trainers are constantly turning down clients due to time and travel. Now, a trainer can add clients within seconds and PerFIcT receives a 22% cut on each additional client or program sold.
A customized fitness program can cost anywhere from $50-$500 dollars and with the capacity to hosts tens of thousands of trainers, we believe the sky is the limit for PerFIcT. Our team is already working with over 325 certified personal trainers and plans on launching in February with over 500. We have planned updates for the next several years and don't plan to stop growing until this app is truly the PerFIcT app. Our beta test begins in December with over 1,500 excited testers signed up.
We are currently beta-testing the web back-end functionality of the app. We are making sure that the back-end website can host the 1200+ exercise photos/videos we’ve taken and making sure it can support thousands of programs that will be transferred into the app. We will begin testing the IOS functionality mid-December with the Android testing soon to follow. The $30,000 of app development will go towards paying StartupSoft to complete their development of the back-end website for personal trainers and will complete the development of the iOS/Android apps. The funds will also be used to add additional features needed for our launch, ensure a proper launch come February (the month we look to launch), and will provide funds for continued development work after the launch of the app.
