San Jose, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) January 11, 2011
The timely launch of Workout Nation™ should go a long way toward eliminating many of the typical excuses that thwart workout related New Year’s resolutions.
The new online fitness service, which includes a fitness calendar, workout planner and exercise tracker, provides an abundance of resources to online health and fitness buffs. This includes the ability to track more than 100 different sports related activities.
From darts and dancing to stair climbing and snow shoveling, Workout Nation provides a diverse enough offering to be compatible with almost any workout regimen imaginable.
“Workout Nation makes it easy for anyone to get a data-centric view of all aspects of their workout routines,” says Workout Nation co-creator Mike Greeves, president of HyperStrike.com. “By tracking all of the exercise related activities completed each day, it’s much easier for people to see if they are meeting the exercise requirements laid out by The American College of Sports Medicine and the American Heart Association.”
Even simple, everyday tasks such as walking contribute to the total amount of calories burned every day.
More than just an online workout journal, Workout Nation compiles all data from members’ activities in a custom formula and in real time. The results are presented on a graph with a few simple thresholds called intensity levels. When calculating day-by-day data on the timeline, the website provides an overview of a person’s current fitness level and a forecast based on what activities are planned in the future.
Additionally, the design for the Workout Nation website was created with a socially focused audience in mind.
“Workoutnation.com was designed for full functionality and integration with social media networks,” says Workout Nation co-creator Andreas Stormvinge, founder & creative director of The Agents – a Swedish Web Agency. “Members of Workout Nation have the ability to login with Facebook Connect, or can create a standalone account.”
Workout Nation was initially conceived when Greeves and Stormvinge met and began collaboration on other online projects. After a few years of careful planning, Workoutnation.com has become a reality. Based in Silicon Valley and Stockholm, Sweden, Workout Nation brings a unique perspective to the online fitness community.
