Denver, CO (PRWEB) December 12, 2012
Denver-based solopreneur and Kansas City native Adam Griffin has teamed up with KC-based startup accelerator Think Big Partners to launch a new health and fitness application known as Bodeefit on the Windows 8 platform. Bodeefit is a free application that sends daily Crossfit-inspired workouts, healthy Paleo-inspired recipes and tips to develop and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Bodeefit solves the problem that many fitness enthusiasts have been looking for—an easy-to use, free application that allows workouts in any area, whether at the gym or at home, combined with a simple nutrition guide. The app sends Crossfit and bootcamp-style workouts to a user’s email Inbox or mobile phone every morning and does not require gym membership or workout equipment. Unlike many apps on the market today, Bodeefit eliminates all barriers to fitness including equipment, time, workout education, gym availability and even motivation.
“I have always had this belief that there are too many barriers to people and their fitness,” says Bodeefit founder, Adam Griffin. “Gym costs, trainer fees, confidence barriers, time in the day. Bodeefit was created to remove those barriers.”
In order to remove those fitness barriers, Griffin and his advisory team have developed an app that not only sends users a free daily workout that can be accomplished at home or in the gym, but also provides inspiration and health-conscious recipes courtesy of PaleOMG owner, Juli Bauer.
Griffin has also teamed up with KC-based startup accelerator Think Big Partners, the “tech talent” that was outsourced in order to complete the build-phase of Bodeefit.
“The natural evolution of Bodeefit is into the app marketplace, whether that be web-based or mobile,” says Griffin. “Given Think Big Partners’ relationship with Microsoft, Blake Miller [partner at Think Big Partners] approached me about getting an app into the Windows 8 app store and the opportunity was a great fit.”
“We have used this not only as an opportunity to build a killer app, but also to explore the Windows 8 platform,” says Blake Miller. “We want to build on it, experience it and then help others do the same. This is a tremendous opportunity for both Bodeefit and Think Big Partners for discovering a new distribution channel.”
Bodeefit launched last week and currently has about 2,000 users. The startup also boasts a solid, early-on following with almost 1,500 Facebook followers. Griffin’s plan is to continue to grow the Bodeefit community organically and introduce new products along the way.
“I am incredibly motivated to reach as many people as possible with Bodeefit,” says Griffin. “We genuinely improve someone’s life in a way that carries far beyond fitness. I am regularly receiving emails and messages from people thanking me for Bodeefit and what we provide, and there is literally no better feeling in the world than knowing we touched a person’s life in a small way.”
Bodeefit finds its roots in Crossfit movements and traditional bootcamp programming. Bodeefit was founded by a group of Crossfitters who realized there is a need to remove barriers between people and their fitness. Bodeefit is designed so you can do the workouts anywhere at any time with no equipment. At home. On the road. In the gym. No assembly required.
