"Fire your coach, get Lift"

Reviewed by / Nov 21, 2013

Lift is a platform backed by a community of people who seek fulfilling resolutions

Stop coming up with future resolutions that are never ended. The best way to grow yourself is completing small real-life quests. Lift provides you with preset plants and community-proposed resolutions you can join and fulfill them in stages.

In fact, that's the added-value feature of Lift: it guides you step-by-step to goals' achievement while encouraging you to keep them on. Both automatic reminders and cheering messages from Lift community users will encourage you not to drop it.

Of course, you can do the same to others. Leave comments to their daily posts, prop them to keep it up. Follow those users and find friends that share your interests. Striving together to get goals make it much easier.

No matter what you want to learn/reach: fitness goals, better e-mail management, improve your writing skills or learn to play guitar. Whatever, in Lift you can find step-by-step plans and mates to share them with.

Developer's original description available here
Lift is like having a coach in your phone. Free guidance, motivation, and tracking for 100,000 different goals.

This is a beta release. We're testing things out and fixing bugs. If you find bugs, you can email us:

Lift breaks your goals down into simple habits and routines, then prompts and encourages you to take regular steps toward healthy life change. With the right support you can succeed at every goal.

1. Step by step coaching plans for 100k goals, habits, and skills.

1. FITNESS. Exercise is the top goal on Lift, with currently over 125k participants. We encourage consistency that builds towards long term fitness success. Your training can range from making an exercise habit via running, going to the gym, pushups, etc. If you need more guidance, we have detailed coaching plans for running, squats, planks and practically every aspect of fitness.

2. PRODUCTIVITY. Productivity is a series of habits around organization, discipline and prioritizing. The Lift community is big on setting priorities, Inbox Zero (many with daily streaks beyond 100 days), and GTD.

    This app is just a poorly implemented tacked on webview. Suffers from random log outs, UI defects and slow performance.

    I feel the app has huge potential, however the fact that it's only a webapp inlaid can prove a disaster at times. I'm unable to access the app at all in areas where I have no access to wi-fi/mobile data (i.e. the metro; where I'd often take time to update

    How does it feel to steal someone else's idea? Not cool at all.
