We have found that building a Web3 fitness application is no small task, requiring our developers to think outside the box and solve unique challenges. The most difficult of these current challenges is the implementation of an AI detection and recognition model which uses a webcam to detect objects around the user, that can be used to exercise. The challenge that we are currently trying to overcome is the back-end integration and AWS support. Secondly, it is the integration of blockchain technology. Blockchain offers the potential for improved security, privacy, and portability of user data, but also requires developers to think in a different way than they are used to. It can be intimidating, but we are hoping that the rewards are worth the effort.
Challenges of building a Web3 fitness application
Our Web3 fitness application will be built on blockchain technology, which means its users interact with it in a very different way than they do with a traditional fitness app. With a traditional fitness app, a user opens the app, logs their fitness information, joins a class, or is shown how to perform an exercise, and then closes the app. They can open the app whenever they want and can use it as often or as little as they like. With a Web3 fitness application, a user does not have direct access to the app. Instead, they must go to a third-party website, log into the fitness application, and then interact with it. From there, they can start fully using the application. This interaction style may seem strange to users, but it is necessary for blockchain technology to power the Web3 fitness application to function. But makes it challenging.
Integration of blockchain technology
When building a fitness application on Web3 technology, it is important to understand how blockchain works and how it can improve the fitness application. For example, blockchain technology can offer users rewards for completing activities in the form of crypto tokens and NFTs. Traditionally, fitness applications charge users in Fiat to access lesson plans or classes, but with blockchain technologies, you are rewarding users for participating, rather than charging them for the privilege. In this Play-to-Earn system, or as we like to call it Move-To-Earn users are motivated to make healthier life choices.
Thinking outside the box
When building a Web3 fitness application, developers must think outside the box and consider what a user would want to do. Building a Web3 fitness application requires developers to ask themselves questions such as, “How can my application be used in the best possible way?”, “How can I make this as user-friendly as possible?”, and “How can I make this application secure?” One way to think outside the box when building a fitness application on Web3 technology is to consider the user experience. While fitness applications are often filled with exercise data, they are often difficult to navigate and use. This is especially true when it comes to using traditional fitness apps. With Web3 fitness applications, developers can make the user experience smoother and more user-friendly. For example, we are integrating an AI detection and recognition system that allows users to detect everyday objects that can be used to exercise with in real-time. In a traditional fitness app, users normally need to invest in equipment first, before they can make use of the application, or they need to have signed up for a gym membership or classes.
Benefits of Web3 fitness applications
Web3 fitness applications offer many benefits over traditional fitness applications. Having enhanced security. improved privacy, and greater portability. When building a Web3 fitness application, developers must understand the difference between fitness apps and blockchain technology and how they work together. Once they understand how blockchain technology functions, they can benefit from its benefits and create a secure, private, and portable fitness application. A fitness application built on Web3 technology is more secure than traditional fitness apps because it uses blockchain to store data. This means that even if hackers breach the fitness application, they cannot access the data stored on the blockchain. When building a fitness application on Web3 technology, developers can also improve the privacy of their users by not requiring them to share their personal information. This is especially helpful for individuals who prefer to remain anonymous.
State of Play
Building our Motion3 fitness application has been challenging thus far, and our hopes of creating a POC in a couple of months have already passed. However, we expect to deliver a version without blockchain integration in the next 4 weeks as a web app, so we can showcase our AI detection and recognition engine, user interface, and how our Gamefi mechanics will work in an MVP. While it has been hard work, and full of challenges, we have loved every minute of it.
