Creating the Bloom Fitness App
Bloom Fitness is a pioneer in the development and delivery of fitness options for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). They empower and lead their athletes to choose a lifetime of community-driven health and wellness. During the Covid-19 pandemic, Bloom Fitness tasked PowerSourcing with creating the Bloom Fitness app. This required full development and deployment of a digital app that would allow its athletes to continue to benefit from its structured workouts.
The Bloom Fitness app, available for iOS and Android mobile devices, offers a wide range of classes. These include strength training, dance, chair fitness, yoga, Pilates, and indoor cycling. All Bloom Fitness classes are expertly tailored and presented to support the unique needs of adults with IDD. Bloom Fitness is staffed by a team of highly qualified instructors who specialize in fitness instruction within the IDD community. Fun and encouragement are integral components of Bloom Fitness, with classes designed to make workouts enjoyable.
The PowerSourcing team worked with Bloom Fitness every step of the way. Our developers balanced the desired functionality of the app with the needs and abilities of Bloom Fitness athletes. The PowerSourcing team developed a digital mock-up of the app to demonstrate user interaction. Once approved, all front-end pages and the back-end database were constructed. Extensive testing was conducted and the PowerSourcing team handled deployment to the iOS and Android app stores.
