News Elevation Fitness wins gold Stevie Award

We're excited to announce that our client's project, Elevation Fitness iPad application, has won an American Business Award in the Experimental & Innovation app category. More than 3,300 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry entered the Stevie Awards this year in a wide range of categories, including Tech Startup of the Year, Software Executive of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, and App of the Year, among others.  

The Elevation Fitness iPad app is a workout-tracking application aimed at personal trainers, which enables them to track their clients’ workouts in real time and progress over time. The current app market for health and fitness trackers is robust, but few are aimed at trainers, who manage fitness data for many users and track workouts with clipboards. The app faces the logistical constraint of being used primarily in the context of an active, guided workout, so in order to be effective, data tracking needed to be “faster than pencil and clipboard.” The app needed to contend with a database of 3,000+ exercises, including how-to photos, as well as the need for bidirectional synchronization of client and workout data to and from the web. 

Stevie Award winners were selected by more than 200 executives nationwide who participated in the judging process.

“We are extremely impressed with the quality of the entries we received this year. The competition was intense and every organization that won should be proud,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. “To those outstanding individuals and organizations that received Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie Awards, the judges and I are honored to celebrate your many accomplishments. You are setting a high standard for professionals nationwide.”
