Since launching in 2014, Fitmotivation has strived to improve each year by adding and improving features.   Good news – it’s that time of year again.  Fitmotivation 3.0 just launched.  Watch the video to find out what’s new! 

Subscribers and visitors will now encounter a new video-landing page.  Scrolling through over 108 videos takes a long time.   One of the improved features is a newly categorized video-landing page.  The latest videos will always appear in the Recently Added Category.  Otherwise, videos can now be searched by category.  The categories include various formats, such as Deep Water, Circuit/Interval, Healthy Aging, Choreography and more. 

Subscribers can now add videos to a Favorites folder.  All videos have a yellow heart appearing on the viewer on the video-landing page.  If you like a video and want to store it for quicker access, just click on the yellow heart while you are logged in and it turns red, indicating that it is now one of your favorites.  When you no longer want it in your Favorites folder, click on the red heart and it will be removed. 

Similar to the videos, abundance brings about its own set of challenges and it was time to find online quizzes a new home.    Subscribers and visitors will now find the quizzes by clicking on Online Education in the navigation bar.  Currently, there are now 11 online quizzes approved for 2.0 AEA CECs each.  Check out the featured blog, Fitmotivation Online Education, for a complete review of this new page. 

Fitmotivation is known as an educational video resource for fitness professionals who want to improve instructional skills and build better classes.  However, Fitmotivation is also a resource for anyone who wants to exercise in the water.  Select videos are produced with an additional audio workout that you can download and exercise along with in the pool.  The advent of Bluetooth wireless technology (ear buds and speakers) has made this a very doable endeavor.  The audio downloads contain the music and verbal cues to motivate and direct you through the workout.  Premium Pro subscribers can download the audio workouts for free. Changes in 3.0 allow Premium subscribers to download only the most recently posted audio workout for FREE.   The most recent download can be accessed through the video viewer of the associated video, or more simply by clicking on the green bar at the top of the video-landing page when LOGGED IN.   All other archived audio workout downloads are now available in the Fitmotivation Online Store.   Basic and Premium plan subscribers receive 50% off each download. 

Thanks to all subscribers for your loyalty.  Your continued support is what allows for the constant improvements to the site.   Stay tuned!  There are more 3.0 improvements coming later this fall.
