i am thinking i will call the DB server "Arnold"
i need a good name for the application server
Beast Dick Motherfuck
No DB cluster?
I suggest squatrackcurls.
how about "cats and dogs"
well if it takes off, i want to buy a 6tb san, 2db servers, and a few blades for application servers
What kind of site is it going to be?
As for server names, I vote for "Blinger", or "Yates".
it is like fitday.com, but 1000000000000000000x better
i may call the app server dorian
dorian/yates FTW. How exactly is it going to be different? You sure that fitday isn't going to sue your pants off?
it does a lot more and the interface is a lot more powerful. you can browse all 20,000 foods and 600 exercises without ever leaving the data entry page. you can make meal plans and workout plans so you don't have to enter the same stuff 100000x
there is a lot more to it, but that is the basic jist of it
Arnold has been ordered
my server naming scheme will be famous bodybuilders

Good lord You have backing for this or are you just buying servers out of the goodness of your heart?
i have interested parties for corporate licensing
It'd be sweet if you kicked Fitdays ass with this.
oh, i slaughter fitday
you don't have to go to 10 different pages to add foods, it searches all in page . plus now i have it updating and changing days withing refreshing the page, which is a big improvement
updated screen shots for the fun of it
and i will pay anyone 10%, up to $1000 that gets me leads to gyms that buy it
I havn't looked at the site but is it an all-online interface or a program that uses an online database and shit?
Also what kind of rates are you charging for what? I'm assuming theres a free "basic" account and then you can go up from there?
when i am live if you want an account i'll give you one.
there are different pages for data entry, but the way the exercises and nutriton pages work there aren't any round trips to the server, it is like how gmail works is the best way to describe it.
i am going to charge $45/yr to use it for individuals, but for my marketing to gyms and trainers i am going much cheaper, ~$10/yr person. i let people use it for a week for free. i am trying to figure out how to add "social network" features to it. y
i also have made it skinnable, so if you were a personal trainer, you could have a subdomain like training.cavefish.com point to my server and it would look like your website, big draw right there
shapefit.com has one coming out simular for $100/yr
Looks pretty cool for trainers especially since you can manage your clients pretty easily from what I've seen (just browsed over the place).
You might have to start giving out trial memberships until it takes off. Sounds like you'd have better luck pitching it to individual PT's rather than gyms, since most PT's just work for the gym and theres a pretty high turnover rate, at least in my experience. Getting your name out there/advertising is gonna be the fun part.
I know theres nothing there at the moment but I'm just not seeing the incentive for a gym owner to use it. Unless they worked out a deal with you to offer discounted memberships to their clients, etc.
yeah, i have a few leads to go off of already. i am not as worried about individuals, it is too broad of a market to go after. trainers and gyms are a nice and consolidated target market.
i have it so you can be a PT at a gym and personally, so you can manage clients on both ends.
i mean, if you think about it, the biggest disconnect trainers have is seeing what their clients are doing day to day, this solves that problem.
at least that is my sales pitch
