I'm currently working on a project aiming to help people achieve their fitness and weight loss goals through the use of an innovative app based social platform and a one to one personal coaching service.
This projects forms part of my Masters degree in behavioural change and will hopefully have some significant impact on those involved before being adapted for national/international use.
As you may well know there are numerous fitness gadgets and apps out there at the moment but each of them serve simply one purpose, whether being a personal trainer app or a method of sharing results. I aim to provide an inclusive programme of training, nutrition, psychological and social support to ensure the user has the tools to get the job done.
I'm a 24 year old psychologist with a passion for making a difference to people's lives. 12 months ago I was an entirely different person, I weighed 89 kgs and suffered from social anxiety and depression. Today I'm 61 kgs and an ambassador for health and wellbeing.
Embarking on my undergrad dissertation I learned a lot about success and failure and the strategies one might use to get to where they want to be, with that I mind I set myself a little experiment. My aim was to change my mindset, set goals and to become a happier and healthier version of myself. I learned valuable lessons on my journey and would like to offer my knowledge and expertise to anyone who needs it.
Where your money goes
In order to get my project and business off the ground I need to make and accessible app based platform. For this I would like to have full control over the development therefore require the assistance of an experienced app designer or alternatively attend a course so as to do it myself.
The next big thing is growing a client base in return for your pledge you will be invited to be the first clients I have. From there I will be able to statistically analyse the success rates of each individual and move forward with a marketing strategy.
Lastly it will provide me with the qualifications necessary to practice and provide the service I wish to offer.
As such initial investments will go towards getting the idea off the ground.
