Best Practices to Follow While Designing a Fitness App in Florida

Are you thinking about developing a fitness app but don’t know where to start? Well, if your answer is yes, then you have come to the right place. Below we discuss some of the best practices you can follow to design a successful fitness app. 

Detailed Onboarding Process

The onboarding process is an essential part of every mobile app, but it is a little more complex when it comes to fitness apps. While most apps only require basic information during onboarding, fitness apps require more details such as weight and eating habits.

In addition to this, the fitness app should allow user to set their health goals during the onboarding process. Furthermore, the onboarding process should explain how they can better utilize your fitness to reach their health goals. 

Running a demo or digital guide takes the user through the various features in the app is an effective way to familiarize them with the app features. 

User Profile

The user profile is an important consideration when designing an app for health and fitness. You should enable the user to create a full profile in the fitness app containing all their necessary details. 

Apart from the standard details such as their name, payment details, social media links, etc., the user should also provide other data. Some of the additional data required for completing the user profile include the following:

  • Age 
  • Weight
  • Height
  • Gender
Any data that concerns the user’s health can be a part of the user profile. This data will enable your app to provide accurate health advice to your customers.

Homepage

The Homepage of your fitness app is the primary point the customer interacts with. Hence, you must equip the home page with all the essential features the customer needs for starting their healthcare routine. 

Conducting user persona research can go a long way in understanding the user requirements. Hence, you can also understand the user’s journey inside the app and equip it with all the necessary features. 

Consider including the most used features of your fitness app and include them on the Homepage. It makes it convenient for the user to use your app without going through multiple steps. 

Enable The Users To Track Their Progress According to the users, one of the most desirable and essential features of a fitness app is tracking their health progress. Additionally, your app should also display statistics with easily understandable data visualization. 

It enables users to understand their progress better and easily track their improvements. Stick with a minimalistic visualization of charts focusing only on the data relevant to their diet or workout.

Resource Organization/Management

One of the things that people tend to forget when designing an app in Florida is resource organization/management. Fitness apps may contain resources regarding workouts, recipes, and so on. It may be in different formats, such as PDF files or even videos.

You must organize and manage all your resources in a systematic manner. You don’t want your user to search for yoga postures and get the resources for weight lifting. So ensure that you make resource organization/management a priority when designing a fitness app in Florida.

For example, allow the users to sort their workout or diets by focusing on the difficulty of the routine. Use advanced UI/UX designs to complement your resources and make them easily accessible for the user.

Build A Community

One of the best practices you can adopt for your fitness app is to allow users to form an online community where they can find like-minded people. It will help your users find inspiration, motivate themselves, and effectively market your app.  

You can encourage community engagements in different forms such as:

  • A media feed for sharing the user’s fitness goals.
  • Enabling the user to contribute to your app by sharing recipes or running routes.
  • A simple chat room to interact with other users.

Conclusion

Developing a successful fitness app is hard work and needs innovative thinking. You need to provide features that make it easy for them to set, track and accomplish their fitness goals. Such features can only be unearthed with innovative new ideas and skilled app developers like NewAgeSmb to execute those ideas.
