Quarantine can lead to a sedentary and inactive lifestyle, this has both physical and mental health implications whether it is heart disease, joint problems, depression or metabolic disease.
Gyms and parks are closed, fitness classes discontinued, online videos lack variety and apps lack intuitive feedback. The pain points are now even more real!
I am a doctor, passionate about healthy lifestyle modifications. My idea is to build an online video platform where users can exercise together, watch (think Twitch!) and compete (think Peloton!) with each other using their biometric devices in an accessible, interactive and inclusive community. Live-streamed classes will be led by fitness instructors who are watching and providing feedback to users in real-time, to keep them motivated and supported.
By removing the barriers to exercise, we will tackle isolation and empower individuals to take control over their health and wellbeing in quarantine and beyond!
This scalable solution can be implemented using webRTC or out of the box video platform, main thing is UX/UI and integrating biometric APIs. Obviously the list of functional/non-functional requirements won’t be exhaustive at MVP stage but if successful, the platform can be multifunctional, with some aspects automated and can deliver group therapy, meditation, education, entertainment, etc at a time where virtual has become the new reality.
