About

PowGo is a fitness buddy app that uses science-based algorithms & over 2k+ video points will teach you how to perform exercises correctly and guide you through sets, reps, ​and weights.

PowGo was build using Flutter and deployed via Google Cloud.

With PowGo gym goers can watch over 2k live videos. The app looks at the user's current workout and pre-fetches videos, so they get a nice smooth transition, no loading screens, no glitches, no bugs.

Each exercise is tracked, logged, and improved for the next workout. The app learns the user's workout routines, and either increases the weights, reps, or sets depending on the workout types and the user's goals. Every exercise also comes with a whole collection of unique videos to aid the user.

Not only does the app guide the user, but it uses sports science to do it most optimally, for example, how much time should they rest beween sets? What is the next muscle group in the workout? And so on. This allows gym goers to get the maximum gains.

There are many advanced algorithms created by Polydelic


Polydelic strategy


Polydelic reached out to sports science professors and personal trainers to discover what users were missing inside modern gym apps.
We discovered that gym goer lacked long term progression and multiple video aids per exercise.


Polydelic hired a local gym out with personal trainers to get the highest quality and feedback for the app videos and app automated training plans.
We then figured out how to employ machine learning and official plans & science to optimize workouts and provide users with the best experience possible.


Along with machine learning and sports science algorithms, the app also includes advanced muscle tracking, which is used to optimize the next workout. It also keeps the plans exciting by adding new exercises (with similar muscle groups) to learn as they use the app.


To allow the app to spread organically, we also included abilities to share workouts with your friends or have a gym experience together via a dynamic link.
The dynamic link allows other gym-goers to install the app via one connection, whether Android or iOS.


Tech points

At Polydelic, we use technology that makes it easy to extend and maintain our applications. We want to focus on the product and not get stuck with tech.

We completed PowGo in 3 weeks from scratch. Meaning we developed the whole Android, iOS apps and Server environment in this timeframe.

We used various tools to aid us during the development of PowGo.

  • Video/Photo AI content analysis so that users can't upload explicit videos & photos.
  • ElasticSearch: An advanced search tool that allows users to search for any previous workouts, friends, saved exercises, geolocation users, and much more.
  • Firestore: A Cloud database that's managed by Google. It has a 99.999% multi-region uptime guarantee and allows us to be secure and scalable.
  • Cloud Testing suite: We can test our app at the Google warehouse on 1000's of different Android devices.
  • Flutter: A modern way to make iOS and Android apps. We have modules build with Flutter that has millions of usages.
