Always "getting in shape" but never quite sure what that means? Finding it hard to maintain motivation? Well you've come to the right app. BodyRecog HOME is a fun and free app that will help you track your progress from beginning to end, and document all the points along the way. Did you know that just by recording a few simple body measurements one can calculate a number of wellness indicators? Based on those indicators BodyRecog can assess your current wellness status by comparing your numbers against our extensive database of established wellness measures gathered from decades worth of peer reviewed research. By knowing where you stand with respect to norms, ideals, and extremes, we can offer sage advice on diet and exercise. It's personal, and takes into account factors such as your age, and gender. Our Premium version will also account for geographical location, ethnicity, and even whether you're already an advanced body-builder, or just starting out. Studies have shown the importance of demographics in interpreting wellness indicators such as Body Mass Index, % Body Fat, and Waist Circumference (and yes, we do take height into consideration). We also believe that a picture is worth a thousand words, so we assist you by taking snapshots that capture the history of your body reshaping process. That along with a 5 page report lets you see in graphic terms just how far you've come.
While the free app provides three indicators, our paid/Premium version (a work-in-progress) will provide: additional indicators, a more personalized and extensive report, and graphing and visualization tools. We're also planning automated measurement so as to reduce the need for manual input.
For those looking to further "up their game" with professional coaching, check out BodyRecog Pro on our website, www.bodyrecog.com. It's coming to a trainer near you! Our Pro version provides your trainer with a 3D capture tool, along with all the information (e.g., over two dozen indicators) needed to assess your rate and degree of development, and to customize routines that will optimize your progress.
This free app is just a taste of what we have in store. In fact we'd luv to hear back from you, so you can help us shape that future with new features, improved features, and integrations with whatever else you're using. So let us know what you think. We believe we can help make a difference in your life, and we welcome the opportunity to do so.
Here are some pointers in using the app:
* This app is for adults between the ages of 18 and 59. We'll expand that in the future.
* All assessments and recommendatations are estimates and guidelines. We do not attest to their accuracy nor accept responsibility for any errors. Diet and exercise may depend upon pre-existing conditions and should always be decided in conjunction with licensed professionals.
* We recommend that measurements be taken at least weekly and ideally at the same time of day.
* Leotards or other tight fitting garments should be worn when taking photos.
* This is an early version and we look forward to making improvements based on your feedback! :D
Good luck and have fun!
