When creating BodyWise, Australian-based founders Michael Halligan (a marketer and an avid runner) and David Banks (personal trainer and wellbeing expert) wanted to build an app that tracked areas of your wellbeing that other apps neglected.
“We see some apps just tracking whether or not you completed a goal. BodyWise is an app for the ‘quantified-self’ movement. The numbers around your health and fitness tell a story and BodyWise lets you track those numbers to show progress, motivate you and keep you accountable” says Banks. “In short, BodyWise helps you to see a more complete picture of your exercise, sleep habits, mood and nutrition – and ultimately, improve your health & fitness over time.”
BodyWise compliments your nutritional app or your Nike Fuelband/Fitbit/UP wristband, giving meaning to your performance. The Tim Ferriss best-selling book ‘The 4-Hour Body’ was the inspiration for creating BodyWise “Ferriss presents over 50 tips to improve your health & fitness. Nothing out there let us track even a fifth of what we wanted to work on, so we built it ourselves” says Halligan.
Fortunately, any of the 44 measurable areas of your health that you don’t wish to focus on will be hidden from view, creating a clean, uncluttered interface to keep you on track on your own personalized health plan.
