Introducing Apple Health integration and self-reporting your healthy activities –
-This big update introduces a tandem of two new features that greatly enhance the “24/7 Accountability” relationship you have with your expert personal trainer! Your trainer will use this holistic data to adjust your workouts accordingly.
Feature 1: +Health Activity
Report any healthy activity (outside of your GAIN-guided workouts) to your trainer. Select from our list of 18 pre-defined health activities, select the duration, and add a note to your trainer. Your trainer will get a ping to see what you’ve done and can adjust to your program accordingly. In addition, you’ll get a little dose of caloric burn feedback as further reward for your diligence!
Feature 2: Apple Health Integration
In addition to logging supplemental health activities in our app, GAIN Personal Training is now integrated with Apple Health. Depending on what other fitness apps and wearables you have connected and what information you choose to share, your personal trainer will receive a more holistic view of your day-to-day health and can adjust your daily workout program accordingly.
How can I do all of this?
Connecting to Apple Health:
-Your personal trainer can now see a holistic view of what you have going on in your day-to-day life depending on what wearables (e.g. Fitbit or Jawbone UP), food trackers (e.g. MyFitnessPal), sleep trackers (e.g. SleepCycle) , and fitness apps (e.g. Runkeeper, Pact) you have connected to Apple Health
1) Tap the “Connect” button which appears for one-time only use in the top left of the +Health Activity screen.
2) Step 1: Tap the upper-left icon to reveal your side menu and go into your settings tab.
Step 2: Click Health Data Settings. Follow the directions on the pop-up screen to modify permissions in your HealthApp to allow GAIN Fitness
Adding Healthy Activities:
-Going for a hike this weekend in addition to your GAIN workout for the day? Let your trainer know you are an absolute rock star and add it as an activity so they can adjust your workouts accordingly and give you an extra pat on the back.
Step 1: Click the “+” in the upper-right corner to add one of the 18 pre-defined exercises
