Fitness enthusiasts can find a variety of free workout videos, or buy a premium plan and access professional workouts guided by famous fitness trainers. To support credit card payments and billing management, the platform relies on Stripe API.
Hoolio's Community Studio allows fitness enthusiasts to initiate, watch, and participate in non-stop 24/7 workouts by sharing each others' live web camera streams and effectively creating online gym sessions.
Hoolio keeps the workout videos on Kaltura. Videos are played by receiving a session from the Kaltura API and establishing a peer-to-peer connection for video playback.
Posture Cam shows the stream from a personal web camera right next to a workout video – this allows users to see if they exercise correctly.
Hoolio automatically finds and recommends workout videos individually for each user. The platform takes into account previously watched videos as well as the user's lifestyle.
The workout video search is implemented with FoamTree. Videos can be found to match specific Mood, Aims, Physique, Duration, and the workout type.
Hoolio offers a collection of fitness plans with different goals, durations, and required fitness levels. Every fitness plan consists of a scheduled set of workouts that helps to reach planned goals in the most efficient way.
Users can track their week-to-week progress by checking whether the number of workout points meets their personal weekly goal, which is calculated automatically by Hoolio based on the previous activity of the user.
