Richard Simmons had it right: sweatin’ just isn’t sweatin’ without some good tunes for motivation. Enter FIT Radio, an app that looks to amp up workouts by giving users access to streaming music, tailor-designed for accompanying exercise.
FIT Radio is the brainchild of Russell Greene who created the app after becoming aware of ” . . . the high demand of consumers [requesting] DJ sets in order to enhance their workouts.”. Greene has sought to fill this void by providing a service that offers a (fairly extensive) line-up of exercise-oriented sets, able to be accessed through computers and mobile devices alike.
Although the premise is simple enough, FIT Radio offers functionality that is sure to catch on for users without the time to update their tired, old workout mixes. The music offered up on FIT is categorized into the most dance worthy genres (like hip hop, electronica and top 40) and has been specially selected for its ability in getting people to feel like moving.
That FIT can be accessed via both static and mobile devices gives it a definite value for time-pressed users. Simply logging on and selecting a pre-made workout set offers a level of convenience and ease that will surely be welcomed by many.
And the technology behind FIT Radio comes from an experienced source. Quinton Pike, FIT developer, is well-versed in other aspects of social music and is responsible for Mougg, a cloud-based service that allows users to upload their songs to the Mougg cloud and then access their archive from any platform at anytime.
FIT Radio is currently in Beta and is available at www.fitradio.com.
