Getfit.Wales is an online platform built for encouraging health, fitness and exercise across Wales.
Getfit.Wales is a collaboration project run by Newydd Housing Association and partners. The objective of the site is to increase physical activity levels for those individuals on the project, reduce obesity, and make residents aware of the local services in the area in order to make positive changes to their social outlook and become more involved in community activities.
GetFit.Wales is a platform that rewards people for being active. It works by allowing participants to link their Fitbit accounts directly to the site and allocates points on the amount of steps achieved over the NHS Choices recommended 10,000 steps per day.
The site has been developed with bespoke customisations and plugins to allow participants to then redeem their points against participating venues, events and activities across Wales.
We gave Ashley Bale IT the task of providing a solution that would integrate Fitbit step data into points to allow participants to buy local health rewards and he certainly delivered.
Ashley took the thoughts out of my head, its exactly what I envisioned.
The website is simply to use and easy to navigate, furthermore it makes my life easier as all information required for monitoring and evaluation is captured through registration and emailing so there is no need for me to chase participants to measure the projects impact which was becoming an onerous task as the project expands.
My spare time is now spent promoting and registering local organisations in order to provide a better service to the participant.
Ashley Bale IT Services supported Newydd Housing Association and partners with establishing a platform designed to work around their bespoke model.
The site was developed for easy to sign up, linking Fitbit devices and spending accumulated points.
