Starfish Tri-Athletic is a Brisbane based fitness club that specialises in outdoor training, with a keen focus on participation, fun and wellbeing for kids aged between 7-16. Since collaborating with iNSPIRE in April 2019, coach Ben and Ted have experienced, first hand, the incredible upshift in the way they engage with their 40+ young athletes. Starfish have used the Wellness Reports to tailor the way they deliver their training sessions and cater to all their athletes – from the casual, holiday attendees to the more serious competitors.
However, it’s not all about the app. The iNSPIRE team regularly holds Workshops and holiday sessions at the Starfish Swimming camps. While the kids have a break from the water, they learn about how their mood, sleep, food and exercise all integrate and affect their performance. Through Wellness Reporting, the iNSPIRE team has been able to identify trends and design Workshops around the topics that are either raising red flags (such as high reporting of unhealthy snacking) or develop areas that are tracking well. This ensures that our sessions remain engaging and relevant to the athletes, and we encourage them to continue their learning on and off the track.
At the end of year awards nights, iNSPIRE provides a trophy to the athlete who has made the most progress or commitment to their wellbeing through the app. This gives athletes and parents more opportunities to continue their discussions on how to manage wellbeing and mental health.
Starfish Tri-Athletic is a great example of a client maximising the Bronze Package. As a local club, they can access wellness reports, as their users (or, more realistically, their parents) pay the $4 per month fee to access the app. This means that all their athletes have access to Wellness Tracking and educational content in one easy location.
As one of our first clubs, Ben and Ted, and all the Starfish members, have become family to the iNSPIRE Sport team.
