Just a quick one here, to highlight the noteworthy milestone I hit this weekend. It took 30 out of 36 hours this weekend – with a Saturday evening break for my 33rd birthday dinner – but after an intense all-night/all-day sprint, I got the site structure live on Sunday evening 10pm. It is a novice effort from a design point of view, but then that’s appropriate, as I’m a novice web designer. The point is that I learned a lot, got the site live by my planned launch date, and worked my butt off to get a design I was at least satisfied with before I did. So that’s that. I’m already making site design & layout improvements, and work will continue in parallel on content and mechanics – the web apps side of things. I’m seeing amazing potential for this “fitness toolkit”. I’m seeing it facilitating exercise and nutrition improvements for millions of people; I’m seeing partnership with respected industry leaders, and I’m seeing eventual integration with physical sensors and an open data/open science initiative. But these are long-term visions; in the next 1-3 months I have concrete awesomeness to deliver via interactive curriculum, fitness assessments, workout routines and exercise database, interval timer, exercise and nutrition tracking.
