An app to help knowledgeable fitness enthusiasts create personalized exercise routines, complete with an interval timer and performance tracking.
The target users are fitness enthusiasts - people who actively and regularly engage in fitness activities. They are well-practiced in all basic exercises and usually put together own routines based on their goals and body focus.
While working out, they are fully focused on performing the exercise with proper form, giving all they have to push themselves. Therefore, a common problem is recalling next exercise or which set they are in.

Exploring product idea
Ideation & Brainstorming
I began the project with market research to identify an area of opportunity. I analyzed current big players in the market Alpha Progression - Gym Logger [100k+ downloads], Fitify: Fitness Home Workouts [10M downloads], Cult.fit [10M+ downloads] and Freelectics [10M+ downloads]. I looked at their features offered and gaps in their current offerings. I used this information for ideation and brainstorming core product features.
Defining app structure
The next step was to map out the structure of the whole app with the core features
Fleshing out the features
Based on the core features offer by this app, I identified the three primary task flows:
1. Create a custom exercise routine.
2. Using the exercise routine to do a workout.
3. Inviting friends to join in a workout.
Setting a visual language
I built the design system and component library so ensure a consistent and coherent design across all screens. Adhering to the Google Material Design guidelines, this design system can be extended as new features are developed.
Select exercise routine
& invite friends
Users can select a custom routine they created, view the exercise and set details. They can either workout alone or invite friends to join them.
Working out with the selected routine & performance tracking
The interval timer takes the user through all the exercise and rest intervals tracking their performance in each set. The workout summary screen also shows how their performance compares with previous, personal best as well as their friend's performance.
