Inspiration

Social distancing due to COVID-19 has shut down or limited capacity to gyms. Sometimes, it can be hard to feel motivated to exercise, especially if you have to do it at home by yourself. Exercise Pals was created to help users motivate each other before, during, or after a workout!

What it does

Exercise Pals connects users to a chat room depending on the type of workout they are looking for. People can discuss progress, ask questions, or just talk.

How we built it

Built using Flask SocketIO, FlaskForm, WTForms, HTML, CSS, and some Javascript

Challenges we ran into

Becoming acquainted with sockets and understanding more about how they work.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

The chatting works!

What we learned

Using SocketIO library and also more about Flask in general

What's next for Exercise Pals

  • Learning how to use a frontend framework to make it prettier
  • Using a database
  • Creating user authentication
