Exercise is essential for maintaining health and fitness throughout life. Unfortunately, due to covid restrictions, people could not go to the gym, go outside, or hire a trainer to maintain fitness.
Our partner was selling Hula Hoop Tires. And during the Corona, they were thinking about a USP to sell the tires digitally and uniquely so that fitness lovers can do exercises at home and stay in a shape. Our partner aimed to keep people healthy by combining their product, a hula hoop, with a platform that would allow you to exercise and monitor your fitness progress.
As a result of a partner's idea, we developed a comprehensive IT solution to link their product Hula Hoop. There are a large number of videos recorded to demonstrate different exercises for users of different fitness levels to have fun with the product at home. In addition, you can track your fitness exercise progress by using the app. With their Hula Hoop Tire and specially designed mobile app, they motivate and help you stay healthy.

We are listening to our customers and thrive to cover all open questions and demystify software development processes and technologies behind it. Enjoy exploring some of the topics in our blog categories below.
Flutter apps are written in Dart. Dart is an open-source and free language. Flutter contains more app-specific libraries, including widgets, materials, and Cupertino. With this, it is possible to build an application that will run on 6 different platforms simultaneously. These include Android, iOS, Web, macOS, Windows, Linux, etc.
We used Firebase’s real-time database to develop the back-end of the Schwungfit App. Firebase database allows secure access to databases directly from client-side code, thus enabling collaborative applications. Users' data is stored locally, and even when they are offline, real-time events continue to fire, giving them a responsive experience. To call the data from the firebase to the end-users, we created the backend logic and APIs. The videos, user authentication, and information can all be called from Firebase DB.
The integration of social sign-in enables users to log on to third-party applications without creating a separate account for each application. They simply use their existing facebook, google, or other social network login information to log on. To eliminate the need for new accounts, we have integrated facebook and google logins.
In Schwungfit App, one of the most difficult tasks was to create a timer that could be started, stopped, paused, and resumed smoothly. In addition, the timer needed to run in the background so that users could continue using the application while it was
To overcome this challenge, we used a change provider for the countdown of timer and progress bar to run in the background. This allowed us to keep track of time and progress without interrupting user activity. While this solution worked well, it was still a challenge to make sure all functions ran smoothly. There were many potential points of failure, but with careful testing, we were able to overcome these issues.
Another challenge we faced was displaying the workout result overview.
It was difficult to get the start, goal, and current value of each workout category while it should also be displayed on the graph at the same time during the workout category setup.
We had resolved this challenge by using flutter_boc dependency.
We value the learnings and lessons learned more than just overcoming challenges. It was fun learning in the process of solving a problem.
The Schwungfit App is a great way to keep track of your fitness goals and progress. But what makes it really special, unique from other apps out on the market! - The idea to connect the exercise tool “Hula-Hoop Tire” with the own app that is connecting
training videos for different skill levels, a progress tracker to motivate us to keep track while we are locked at home and train, track and learn at the same time without using another app.
