Watch out for WatchFit

Posted on May 16, 2014

000-square-watchfit-diet-plan-screenshot-copyToday, May 16, sees the launch of a new fitness, diet and wellbeing app, which has struck upon new ways to motivate users to shape up and will also allow trainers to keep an eye on their clients’ activities and progress.

WatchFit is the result of a vision by Parisa Louie, significant investment and considerable time and technical expertise drawn from London, Hungary and Bulgaria. “We are now going live and cannot wait to open up the WatchFit world to everyone. It’s a very exciting time,” says Parisa.

WatchFit is an easy-to-use, engaging, uniquely motivating and informative fitness and food-tracking tool that provides entire plans by internationally renowned experts covering all fitness and dietary aims and goals.

The app allows communities to be built up around any given plan. By following the programme, eating the correct meals and undertaking the work-outs, points are accumulated and these can be measured against the progress of those you have agreed to share your information with.

Parisa explains: “This creates a sense of community and competition and can bring an element of game-like fun as well as additional motivation. There is also the facility to immediately upload pictures of your meals and these will earn points if they are accurate to the plan and others can see what you are consuming. And in the fitness industry it’s a great way for trainers, conditioning experts and sports coaches to keep tabs on clients and parisa louie explains watchfit to prince andrewensure they are following a prescribed plan.”

Points obtained through correctly following programmes can also be redeemed against other plans on the WatchFit app.

Costing nothing to subscribe, those who sign up to WatchFit receive a free comprehensive programme. WatchFit is also going to be compatible with Apple’s latest M7 motion-sensing technology. More than simply acting as a pedometer, it gauges the intensity of movement and can differentiate between walking and jogging, giving a more accurate account of distance covered and exertion.

But more than being an interactive platform, WatchFit is an information hub and resource centre with a constantly evolving and expanding library of top-quality material provided by athletes, coaches and experts across all manner of disciplines related to health, fitness performance and diet.

Says Parisa: “WatchFit can be a port of call for anybody looking to read up on a particular subject, check out the latest thinking on a topic or to read the most current item from a genuine authority on a subject.”

With top international experts, Olympic gold medalists, renowned TV presenters, celebrity trainers, authors, elite coaches, sportspeople and academics committed to provide articles and programmes, WatchFit promises to deliver a satisfying and thorough fitness, health and nutrition app experience.
