How we make an excellent UI/UX
for a fitness app


The app’s interface should tailor the content to the needs of different user groups (level of preparedness or possible disabilities) and adjust it to their preferences and specific goals.

Clear navigation

A user needs to take action fast, be able to work with the app straightforward. A good design provides workout or menu information in one tap, so a user immediately feels at home.

Convenient tracking

Recent routine stats should be made available in an instant. Data from wearables should be displayed to give an immediate understanding of the progress and new achievements.

Hardware integration

The best UX is achieved when the app can be integrated with wearables and fitness bands. Easy data logging and enabled fitness progression add to the app’s key fitness features.
