We’ve got some awesome updates to share with you Sistaz!
We’ve been working away over the last few weeks and the updated members website is finally ready to go live. Some time over the next 1-6hrs the new website will be live and you're going to have access to tons of brand new features that I just can’t wait for you to get your hands on.
The best part about all of these updates… You don’t need to do a thing!
Just click member login at the top of this site like you always do, and you’ll be greeted with a brand new members area that has everything you need to reach any fitness or weight loss goal imaginable.
Sister Squad Members Update Overview
For those of you that prefer... We've also written a post covering the biggest new features below.
The Exciting Updates
Let’s start with the feature that I’m most excited to share with you. We’ll go from most exciting to least exciting (but still pumped) feature that I want to tell you about.
The Big Picture & The Sister Squad Social Network
So since the launch of Sister Squad the goal has always been to build a buzzing community of women that are on similar journeys.
I’m a huge advocate of having people around you with similar goals. They support, they encourage, and they are a massive help when you’re trying to smash big “life changing goals”.
Sometimes women can even lack the support of people in their own homes when they are on a journey of self improvement. So having a network of motivated women around you is going to be a massive help if you’re in a situation like that.
I’ve always believed the saying “you’re the average of your 5 closest friends”... But I’ve now rephrased that statement.
I now like to think about it as “ you're the average of your 5 closest Sistaz”.
Well if you’re the average of your 5 closest Sistaz inside the network you’ll 100% be on the right path.
It’s always been a goal of mine to mobilise a movement of badass women, to help as many women in this world get exactly what they want from life…
With the launch of the Sister Squad Network… I firmly believe we can do that.
No more Facebook groups for Squad Sistaz
We’ve brought everything together and blended it into one awesome online fitness experience.
Now all Sister Squad programs and memberships, and the accountability you get from a group of badass women is going to be here on the website, and in your account.
Having this support network is going to be a complete game-changer. Many of you have asked for a better way to connect and I’m 100% positive that this is the way forward.
Points & Ranks
We’ve also done our best to make the whole experience of improving your life with Sister Squad more exciting and enjoyable.
Everything you do now when you're logged into the members area will earn you points. Your point balance will build up over time as you interact with the programs, workouts, and the other Squad Sistaz, and when you reach certain point balances you will unlock ranks and achievements.
Are you a “Ruby Sista”, a “Diamond Sista”, or an “Emerald Sista”... It’s time for you to find out.
There are more than 20 different activities across the site that will earn you points and build your point balance so you can unlock ranks.
You’ll be able to see your rank, and the rank of other members as you progress through programs and it’s just going to add a little bit of fun to the whole experience.
I don’t believe in leaderboards for losing pounds of fat, it can become an unhealthy and demotivating experience for many. But tell me who doesn’t like unlocking levels as they naturally use the website, complete workouts, and chat as one community on a mission?
There’s also a leaderboard that shows all the ranks and what you need to do to continue to move up towards that “Emerald Squad Sista” status.
It’s going to be a fun experience to start and as the platform grows we will be sure to introduce prizes for the women that are clearly crushing it and moving up the ranks for Sister Squad.
Your profile & Connections
Inside the network you are going to have your own profile. Your own profile image, your own cover photo, and all the updates you make will be stored here. It can contain information that only you can see or it can have images, posts, and GIF’s that you decide to share with the community.
This can be a private journal for yourself or you can share all your highs and lows with everyone that’s a member of Sister Squad. The choice will be entirely up to you.
We don’t want you to feel the pressure to get involved, but we’d encourage you to be as active as possible and see where you end up.
You can also make “connections” within Sister Squad and share updates with just that group if you choose.
The point is you have a lot of options when it comes to sharing updates and it will be your choice how you proceed.
Groups & Forums
We also have private groups for certain members of Sister Squad programs. This is where we have the option to keep certain updates contained within a group of people that are participating in the same program. Happy days. We also have the option for longer form conversations to take place in a neatly threaded traditional online bulletin board style of messaging.
Having the option to build up a forum of valuable content will be a massive help. If you have an issue with something, chances are there’s another woman with a similar problem. The forum will be a great place to discuss these issues and then store the information for other women to use again in the future.
Start Following & Be Followed
When you are inside the Sister Squad Network you will see that you have the option to follow each other just like you would on most popular social networks.
You can even gain followers yourself and have people support and cheer you along your journey.
But inside the platform this isn't some vanity metric that you see people shout about on Facebook. These are your true Sister Squad supporters that want to see you smash the goals you set.
When you connect with other Sistaz you’ll have the ability to private message each other. You must have a connection accepted by the other member before you message but we wanted to give you this ability to have conversations that you don’t necessarily want to have appear in the news feed for all members to see.
Just A Much Better Overall Experience
You’ll notice that we have shifted how you access certain pages on the site. The “Progress Tracker” and “Calorie Range Calculator” are now inside the panel that you’ll find on the left hand side of your screen.
They are much easier to access here and I hope you take the time to put the “Progress Tracker” to good use. It’s one of the most under-utilised tools inside the platform and now with easier access than before, we’ve made using it a no-brainer.
You will also notice that we shifted certain pages like “My Billing” and “Support” to the profile menu.
They are much easier for you to find now if you need them for any reason.
This entire update is focused on providing you with the best online fitness experience we can possibly deliver. We’re also insuring that we can provide you with everything you need long into the future. We have so many amazing updates planned for the rest of the year, and this update is the first step in the process.
We have massive plans that take time to put together, but we have things like:
And so much more on the roadmap for the entire Sister Squad community.
We want you to win and we want you to have amazing fun along the way. We’re only getting warmed up!
Avoid Overwhelm & Just Show Up
There’s lots of changes inside Sister Squad but trust me they are all for the better and to help you get what you want.
But we have kept some things very similar. Once you’re inside a program you’ll notice some similarities to the experience you had on the last Sister Squad members website.
Just take your time to go through things and most importantly, show up and get your workouts done. If you remain consistent I have no doubt you’ll be zipping around the entire site and buzzing with the community in no time.
See you on the inside Sista 🥳.
