Feel the Burn with Real Time Communications


June 07, 2017

As summer fights to show its face here in New England, it means we’re right around the corner from beach and bathing suit season, signaling an uptick in gym memberships and the revitalization of those resolutions from a few months back. Getting back into a workout routine can certainly feel like a herculean task, but with a little help from others, or a gym buddy, it doesn’t seem so difficult.  A recent release from Blacc Spot Media is leveraging the power of real time communications to take this experience next level.


Weqool is a new application that launched this week, which enables users to build friendships, compete, communicate and meet others who share an interest in working out and fitness activities. The app offers the ability to watch workouts from professional fitness trainers, and motivate each other through the interactive environment.

In developing Weqool, Blacc Spot Media turned to Temasys to enable the real-time video chat, to aid in creating a truly immersive experience for the user. The digital transformation taking place is touching all aspects of our lives, and the gym is no different. Weqool creates a complete virtual workout experience, while still fostering the camaraderie and spirit of community developed from pushing one’s limits with others as you strive to be the best you.

“We are passionate about WebRTC, as we believe smart communication empowers both businesses and people to effectively communicate in new and innovative ways,” said Blacc Spot Media Founder & CEO, Lantre Barr. “We chose Temasys' platform due to its scalability, ease of implementation and complete range of features, including WebRTC enabled video chat, which is a major differentiating feature of the Weqool app.”

Accountability, motivation and desire are just a few components it takes to craft the perfect self, and Weqool allows you to begin your wellness journey from the location of your choosing. Real time communications empower a new era of virtual you name it. Spanning countless verticals, real time is revolutionary.

Let real-time communications help you feel the burn from the comfort of your home, and be ready for bathing suit and beach season.
