Beautifully designed fitness apps for a healthy start to 2015Kaitlyn Ellison by Kaitlyn Ellison 7 years ago 5 min read Build a business Grow an agency Learn design Design inspiration Web & digital design Logos, websites, book covers & more…Get a design We have officially found ways to run almost every aspect of our lives using our phones. From communication and social interactions to managing time and money, from entertainment and gaming to education and even design, there’s no dearth of ways to improve our lives using these devices. So if we’re spending so much of our time relying on these programs, they better be good-looking. No one wants to deal with a clunky, inefficient, or just plain outdated app all day long. Luckily, there are a lot of app designers out there who understand this, and apps are progressively getting better and better looking.
Here we’ve selected ten of our favorites from one of the multitudes of app categories — fitness. As we continue into the new year, not only can you be inspired by great design, but also find the motivation to get out there and get your body moving. 1. Argus Argus Argus is the special leads master of organizing multiple different metrics in one easy-to-access and deliciously geometric interface. The program taps into your phone, using the built-in motion-tracking technology combined with additional self-measured statistics to create a collection of complementary graphs and charts outlining your overall fitness. For iOS. 2. Class Pass Class-Pass This opacity-laced design allows users to find, sign up for, and track their favorite local exercise classes. The app is a paid service, so though it is free in itself, you do have to sign up and pay for an account in order to use it.
But if you’re the type that easily gets bored in gym classes and you’re constantly looking for something new, then this sleek app is a great way to keep yourself entertained. For iOS.Fitbit enhances their simple colored fitness accessories (read: activity bands) with a similar health and fitness tracking app. Similar to Class Pass, the app itself is free but in order to take full advantage of it, you do need to own the hardware — the Fitbit Flex. If you do go with this option, your data will wirelessly upload to the whitespace-infused interface, and best of all will allow you to uniquely interact with other friends using the program — our favorite option is to “taunt” other people. For iOS, Android, and Windows.
