HOW WE CAME TO BE
Poolfit was inspired by Fitmotivation.com, an aquatic fitness instructor training site that launched in 2014 with a streaming video platform. Water fitness enthusiasts started discovering Fitmotivation and subscribing to access the videos. Blending fitness professionals and fitness consumers on one site proved unwise and so Poolfit was created for those who wanted to follow along with pool workouts.
The Poolfit website launched in January 2019 with 20 videos. It soon became apparent that a streaming water fitness website was not going to cut it due to a lack of Wi-Fi at most pools. The tech team got busy developing an app that would allow users to download videos, eliminating the need for streaming and Wi-Fi. Subscribers could simply download a video and prop up their device poolside and exercise along with the videos.
The Poolfit IOS App launched in the App Store in May 2020 with 50 pool workouts. And then in December 2020, the tech team released an android version in the Play Store.
In December 2021, Poolfit got a makeover. The revamp showcases a new organization and look for the rapidly growing video library and includes enhanced search and filtering. Also added was a media page to highlight Poolfit’s increasing publicity, as well as water exercise articles.
The total video count on the streaming platform and app at the end of 2022 was 175+. New Poolfit instructors made their debut, including Sharlie Peterson and Haylley Pittam. Other instructors returned after a hiatus of a few years, including Ashley Bishop and Lori Templeman. In winter 2022, a new look to the streaming platform was unveiled. In fall 2022, the tech team launched the new playlist feature on the IOS app. The playlist feature for the android app will be launched in 2023.
There are now over 175+ pool workouts, all led by top-notch instructors, many of whom educate and certify aquatic fitness instructors. The Poolfit tech team has been busy adding enhanced features, including Favorites, Search, Categories and Chromecast & Airplay embedding for casting the water exercise app to TVs.
