The Company

SARIE is a Media24 magazine, that provides inspiration to live your best life, catering to the Afrikaans speaking market.  They approached LightSpeed to build payment a gateway website for readers to sign up to a 12 week weight loss and exercise programme called Slanker met SARIE.

The Challenge

We needed to build a plugin that displayed the meal and exercise plans in a chronological order that the reader could work through logically, and mark days complete as they progress.  All the content needed to be restricted by a login, after the reader has purchased the plan membership.

The workouts and meal plans are also available for download in the members area.

The main challenge for this project was the site needed to be translated entirely in Afrikaans for the magazine’s key demographic.  The content was provided by the client in Afrikaans and LightSpeed was responsible for translating WooCommerce strings.

The Solution

The Media24 Weekly Planner plugin, was developed specifically for this client, and allows the meal plans and workouts to be displayed in a logical order for the reader to follow.  We created two post types (recipes and workouts) that can be added to the Weekly Planner.

Instructional videos / gifs are used to provide details on how to execute the exercises.  We used LSX Videos to add this functionality.

The plan is sold on the website using WooCommerce and the WooCommerce Memberships plugin.

The My Accounts section allows the user to edit their profile, and also take the fitness test to help inform where to start on the plan.

The following plugins were used to build this website – LSX Banners, LSX Customiser, LSX Testimonials, LSX Sharing
