People typically start the New Year with a resolution centered around living an active, healthy lifestyle. In 2020, especially, because of quarantine, people had the time to assess their lifestyle and make a concerted effort to incorporate exercise into their daily routines.
This focus on fitness is carrying over into 2021 with goals of building community when feelings of isolation are at their peak and providing motivation and guidance to stay on track with exercise.
A new community-driven mobile app called TeamUp Fitness is hoping to fill this void by bringing fitness enthusiasts from around the world together to connect, motivate, inspire, and help others achieve their lifestyle changes.
Connection is Important
This sense of connection comes at a time when the Census Bureau reports that more than one-third of Americas have displayed clinical signs of anxiety, depression, or both since the COVID-19 pandemic started, according to a TeamUp Fitness news release.
TeamUp Fitness connects fitness and overall well-being through its app and gives users the ability to:
- Connect with a feature called “Let’s Connect”
- Get motivated and Inspired by Viewing other users’ feeds
- Post Unlimited Photos and Videos
- Filter searches by fitness goals, activities, distance, and more
“2020 was a year like no other. However, it’s brought into focus the need for connection and the importance of living an active lifestyle,” said Tony Trombetta, CEO of TeamUp Fitness in the news release. “Our goal at TeamUp Fitness is to provide both and encourage our users to try to make a new connection, or simply push beyond what they thought was possible for themselves.”
Though quarantine brought with it more time, something people crave in life, it also brought challenges and one of them was limited resources as fitness centers were forced to close their doors for extended periods at a time.
From this challenge came new opportunities and TeamUp Fitness stepped up to the plate to create a community for fitness enthusiasts to connect, network, find new workout partners, professionals, even possibly find a fit companion, the news release added.
Users from all over the world have found connection and community through the app and continue to TeamUp with other members who are interested in similar activities and lifestyles.
“Living an active lifestyle, though it seems like an individual endeavor is heavily rooted in community,” Trombetta said in the news release. “We created TeamUp Fitness to help people on their own fitness journeys connect with and reach their personal goals while motivating others to do the same.”
