Focus on Fitness App

NYU Hackathon (HackNYU)

Year: 2018

Purpose: Develop an app so that people can focus on being fit

My team and I created a Google Chrome extension that blocks webpages so that people can focus on working out and preventing obesity. We wanted to combat the obesity epidemic in today's world because it is a massive issue for the general public. While the internet is a fantastic place for innovation and connectivity, it does facilitate being idle, and this is a large proponent to the issue of obesity.

The way it works: For one hour, the user will be blocked from online distractions on their computer, and while they work out, they can track activity from their smartphone.

We used HTML5, CSS, JavaScript, and the Chrome web development kit to make an chrome extension.
