How does online coaching work?
Provide trackers to the people you want to monitor or coach or ask them to buy an Activ8 tracker themselves. Create user accounts in the Activ8 system and people can start to wear Activ8. When a user frequently synchronizes its activity data you can follow from any computer how active they have been and what activities they did during the day. Synchronization can be done via a computer (Windows or Apple) or with one push or a button via the smartphone (Android or iPhone). In Android users do not even have to push any button as measurements are fully automatically synchronized to the cloud. When users are not able to synchronize themselves, you can also do it for them when you see your client, once every 1, 2, 3 or 4 weeks.
Every coaching organization or coaching intervention is different, together with the Activ8 team we can customize existing functionality or add new functions or applications. Contact Activ8 how this works. We prefer to be involved as early as possible to jointly think about the easiest and most cost-effective solution and when possible finding funding to cover the investments needed.
