A new dawn is on the horizon. The online fitness revolution that has gripped us since the beginning of the year will now have a social media platform to thrive on. Boomday has arrived.
This new video-centric sport, health and fitness-focused social networking platform allows you to see the content you want to see, without having to scroll through hundreds of pictures of dogs to get there. For the fitness freak or the newbies to this area, this app lets you find exactly what you need, whether that be inspiration to get going, motivation to keep pushing yourself or tips to get yourself in shape.
Essentially, it is streamlined. Social media without the clutter.
You can upload videos of yourself, build an online presence or just absorb everybody else's form and technique, allowing yourself to improve in the process. In 2021, it is estimated that the average person will spend 100 minutes a day watching online videos, but how much of that is stuff you really want to see?
Boomday is about making your online experience as efficient yet rewarding as possible. You no longer wade through your uncle’s controversial Facebook posts to get to the content you want. On Boomday, everything is tailored for you thanks to their intelligent search function.
There are some names with pedigree already signed up. British Champion gymnast Luke Strong, triple jumper Naomi Ogbeta, Paralympic sprinter Olivia Breen and BBC’s ‘The Greatest Dancer’ winner Ellie Ferguson will all be on there when it launches on the 29th October, and you can join them.
It isn’t just lifting weights and running on a treadmill however, it will also cater for a wide range of sports. Football and fitness are the bread and butter but you can see freestyle football from Daniel Cutting, parkour, yoga, water sports, golf - even BMX! They have got all bases covered and there is something for everyone.
Fitness apps have become the must have thing on your phone during the pandemic. Peloton have doubled their sales in 2020, while between Q1 and Q2 this year, fitness downloads increased by 46%. With home workouts now a part of our routines, this is the ideal time for Boomday to launch and for you to get involved.
Director Murray Kennedy commented: “Our own experiences on social media gave us the passion and determination to create a focused social platform for people who are into sport, health, and fitness, allowing them to concentrate on the content they want to see. As all the videos will be user-generated, it’s not a performance or fitness orientated app but a place to connect and share videos which encourage, motivate, or simply entertain.”
If you’re fed up with Facebook, tired of Twitter or irate with Instagram, check out this brand new social media platform.
