This is a really big month for Jefit, as the company celebrates our 10-year anniversary this week. The genesis of Jefit was finding a solution to a personal problem Mr. Ying Lin, Founder & CEO, was experiencing when working out at the gym. There were not enough systems in place for him to record and track his workouts.
Since those early days, we have become one of the top digital apps used for planning & tracking individual strength training workouts. The Jefit app recently hit a big milestone when it surpassed 9 million members.
The team has continued to grow over the years and we are always looking for good team players to come on board with us.
The following screenshots depict what the website and app looked like more than a decade ago (on the left) compared to today (on the right).
What Jefit Looks Like
Jefit to Release a Host of New Features Soon
The company has continued to improve our brand and product features for both the website and our award-winning app. New features include updates in four key areas found in the app.
New Superset Sharing Feature
Jefit members will soon have the ability to share their workouts that have supersets added as part of a workout. This functionality was not previously available.
Interval-Based Timer Option
The Jefit workout options are about to improve significantly now that the software has the ability to create interval-based workouts. When you edit a workout you will soon have five options to choose from to customize a typical strength training session. You can build a workout to match your needs by using the appropriate number of sets, repetitions, rest, interval time and supersets as seen below.
Look for the Jefit Database to Increase to 1400 Exercises
The Jefit exercise database has increased to 1400 exercises since adding more than 60 new exercises. Explosive bodyweight exercises like a Burpee, in addition to a Hex-bar Deadlift, Kettlebell Farmer’s Carry, DB Suitcase Carry, TRX Inverted Row, Kettlebell Swing, Side Plank, Ab Wheel Rollout and Split Squats to name just a few. Four new “exercise types” were also added, increasing the total to eight categories. The new categories include dynamic warm-up, explosive, yoga, and mobility. More than 30 of the 64 newly created exercises fall under Jefits’ most popular exercise heading which is strength training.
Exercise “Equipment Needed” Updated
The Jefit equipment menu was updated bringing the total number of equipment choices to 20. New exercise equipment including the stability ball, weight plate, Hex-bar, TRX suspension, medicine ball, Bosu ball, and Ab Roller.
We look forward to continuing to support our members through periodic updates which in turn will continue to improve app functionality. Thank-you for the past ten years. We look forward to helping change the lives of Jefit members for many years to come. Stay Strong! – the Jefit Team.
