Motiver.fi is a nutrition and training diary designed for athletes. Users can track their personal fitness progress and gym activity as well as sports training efforts. Items appear in a dated list with easily identifiable icons so users can see what category the activity falls under (such as a dietary task or a workout). User can also create comments to go with each item entry. The application provides forms that let the user add workout information. Users can choose to add a workout, routine, cardio or run. Each form is tailored to the specific type of activity. Users can list which part of the body the workout targeted, how many repetitions they completed and the start and stop times for the session.
Motiver.fi was created to provide a basic tracking solution for athletes. The application hasn’t received huge popularity, but it has made a good impression with the users who have tried it. Some user claim that it works very effectively and helps them track regular activities that are necessary to meeting personal fitness goals. A few extra features or additional login options would likely encourage more users to give Motiver.fi a try.
Motiver.fi is essentially a fitness diary. There are other services that offer features that are very similar. It’s difficult to point out one specific function that belongs entirely to the application. Most health and fitness applications provide users with a blog or diary that they can use to track their efforts. The application also allows users to share their workouts and nutrition system with friends, but this is also not a new feature. Motiver.fi is not innovative, although it is effective for some users.
Motiver.fi isn’t much to look at, but it still remains modern and professional. The application doesn’t crowd the user. There is plenty of open space so users can navigate comfortably. The features are simple and clearly marked. Additional information or a feature list would be helpful on the application’s homepage, and might even entice more users to give it a try. The service is simple. Users who need a feature-packed fitness tracker should look elsewhere.
New users can try Motiver.fi by clicking the orange “Sign in with Google account” link near the center of the homepage (or the Google logo above it). The user must login to Google to access Motiver.fi. After logging in, the user is asked to allow the application to access their account. There are no alternative sign in methods offered at this time. Users who do not have a Google account will have to create one to try Motiver.fi.
Motiver.fi is available to everyone for free. Users sign in with a Google account, which is also free. There are no subscription requirements and the user doesn’t have to make any purchases. The interface doesn’t throw advertisements at the user, either. Free is attractive, but it’s also the only price Motiver.fi could justify given the application’s current feature list. More functionality would need to be added before the service could justify charging fees.
Motiver.fi is a helpful resource for anyone who wants a basic fitness tracker. The application records the user’s nutrition and fitness related tasks each day. How effective it is really relies on the user. The service doesn’t come with any flashy features, although there are sharing capabilities so users can past their favorite workout routines or diets on to others. Google users will find Motiver.fi even more appealing because a Google account is needed to register.
