Revolutionizing Sports Coaching with “Pick your Coach”
Pick Your Coach is based on the theme that connects professional coaches to sportsmen regardless of their geophysical location offering them a personalized experience.
The Brilliant Idea
ToXSL was contacted by a client from India, Akshay Beerala. The business owner wanted us to develop an application that has professional coaches from all over the world and, the sportsman can complete their training through video and chat options.
No matter what your goal is, the professional training is you get the world-class sports and fitness coaches on a click. Users need to download the app, book their coach through calling or chatting, for calling the OpenTok platform is used, and for chatting we used Firebase.
Pick your coach offers the best sports coaches covering large physical locations, users, sports of many types to achieve the following goals.
1. Offer Mobile Coaching
What problems are the sportsmen facing during their play? With mobile coaching, the sportsmen got a platform that eases their communication with professionally certified trainers. Regardless of your location, send your video to your coach while you are playing. Your coach will analyze, rectify errors, and correct your mistakes.
2. Schedule Appointments
Once the user finds the coach, they can tap the button and request a personal appointment with the sports coach they wish to hire for their training. It makes it simpler for the user to find the best professional coach across various sports disciplines.
3. Push Notifications
Now, when anything new is updated on your app, maybe a discount or a new feature with the push notification option. The app notifies you of all the information so that you don’t have to check the app every time.

We have integrated communication tools for chatting, calling for all types of sports, and fitness coaching.
