Digital fitness app for sports fans
About Fan Fit
Fan Fit is a smartphone app that helps sports clubs and fans communicate and think more about active, healthy lifestyles. The app is designed to increase fitness awareness and empower fans and players with just a basic smartphone. The app can track various activities including walking and running etc. and integrates with social media.
It can be rebranded to a clubs colours and information, take a look at the Salford Red Devils version in the image to the right. It has been developed from research at Salford University and allows better communication between fans, whilst tracking exercise levels.
Digital Media, sports fans and communications are key areas of research for Salford University’s Centre of Sports Business and Digital Business, working in conjunction with our centres for Social Business and Health Sciences. Our research centres on the use of digital communication technologies for sports fans and clubs and crosses over into the growing demand for sports and also fitness apps.
Originally the Fan Fit app was branded Footy Fit, and in this video you will see a visual demonstration of how the app worked. We decided to go down the route of Fan Fit instead, as this is something we believe will reach a wider market, to all sporting clubs and societies.
So why stop at football? When we can now rebrand Fan Fit for anyone! The video will outline some of the core features we included in the mobile app, and to find out more information on this project, take a look at this here: Footy Fit Project
To Get Involved
Fan Fit has been designed to track fitness data and to integrate social media data to allow friendly competition between fans and players. New functions and a new look can be applied to the app. We are currently partnered with Salford Red Devils rugby club, however we are seeking more sports clubs and other interested parties that would like to trial out the app and speak to us at the University. If you would like to participate or have any questions about the project, please contact the team: firstname.lastname@example.org
