My Map Fitness: An App for Nutrition and Exercise

Summary : If You’re Serious About Fitness, Get Serious About this App!

My Map Fitness is an all-inclusive health app that lets users log their workouts and daily food intake. When launching the app for the first time, users must input their personal information that includes name, email, height, and weight. From there, My Map Fitness allows users to record and/or log their workouts, enter in their daily food intake, and partake in challenges, among other options. To access these options, users must tap the “lined” button on the top left of the main screen, which will provide them with a list of options. To record their workouts, users must tap the “record a workout” or “log a workout” option. The “record a workout” requires users to bring their device with them, while the “log a workout” lets users enter in workout data manually. Users will need to tap the “type” button for a complete list of activities in these options and the “save” button once all their information is added. The “log food” option lets users input the foods they consume daily, My Map Fitness cross-references the foods and workouts entered, and users can see how their workouts and food alter their daily caloric intake in the “nutrition” tab. The “challenges” option gives users access to fitness challenges that they can join and earn prizes.

Please Note: There are other options available in this app, some which require in-app purchases.

Instructional Ideas

  1. Teachers can have students track their daily caloric intake using this app. To do so, teachers can require students to enter in their activities and food intake each day for a period of time (e.g., a week, month, or semester). As students get used to entering in their data, teachers can monitor their progress by having students journal responses to the following prompts: (1) Is entering this data daily becoming easier or more challenging? (2) How has entering in this data daily impacted you? (3) Has anything happened to you since you started entering in this data? Apps that students can use for journaling are Hanx Writer, Quick Office, and WPS Office.
  2. Teachers can monitor the challenge board in this app. When an appropriate challenge arises, teachers can have students enter it. If no challenge arises, teachers can create a “class challenge” and have students enter it. Example class challenges are: (1) Can you do 100 sit-ups daily for a month and log them? (2) Can you run 200 miles in a month and log them? (3) Can you track all the foods you ate and exercises you completed in a month? As students engage and complete these challenges, teachers can require students keep a journal about their progress.
  3. Teachers can have students use this app, Fooducate, and Lose It! to track their food intake for a week each. After using the three different apps for a week each, teachers can have students write a comparative essay or make an argumentative presentation in which they critique the three apps’ strengths and weaknesses before explaining which app they prefer and why. Essays can be composed in the Polaris app. Presentations can be made using the PowerPoint, Prezi, or Haiku Deck app.
