Strength UP christopher tonucci

Purpose of New Fitness / Lifting App

To help keep people on track of their workout routines. When you select a pre-made workout in StrengthUP, it will pre load a workout schedule based on how many days and what days per week you wish to work out. The goal is to have an app help you focus on your workouts rather than entering routines in each time you go to the gym.

App 1: Gym Workout: Personal Trainer & Workout Tracker

Images from AppStore

Initial observations (mood, feel, etc.): The first two screenshots show a light background that is easy to navigate and suggests an easy to operate interface with large press buttons. The 4th image shows a mix of contrast backgrounds of black and white. The black portion of the background then has red press buttons. The over all appearance of this screen appears to strain my eyes.

Main Features: Effective Professional Exercises, Built in workouts, Track Performance and Progress

Navigational choices: Could not open app to see navigation, Does seem fairly easy to navigate from screenshots.

Basic steps to accomplish users goal: Choose type of workout to achieve fitness goal —> Record Weight and Reps —> Track Progress.

Principles of design: The overall unity and balance of the app is consistent from screen to screen. The emphasis on each screen is to point the user directly where they should be pressing / tapping on the screen to progress. The movement of the app seems to be vertical starting from top to bottom making the app easy to read through.

Visual hierarchy: Each screen is easy to navigate and understand what to do. I do not agree with some of the color choices on the screens tho.

Typeface selections and sizes: - Used San Serif Fonts at a medium size font with a weight of medium to think.

Dominant and subordinate colors: Dominant Colors: White / Light Gray / Black Subordinate Colors: Black and Red

Illustrations, images, videos, icons, data visualization: Images are photographs of a person performing the exercises

App 2: MyTraining: Gym Workout Planner & Weight Lifting

Images from AppStore

Initial observations (mood, feel, etc.): The app brings in a light and fun mood. The color choices of white, red, and blue have a playful outlook.

Main features: 250 + exercises with videos and interval timer, Simple way to create and track workouts, Reach goals with support & motivation (Social Features included), Log routines in a calendar.

Navigational choices: Could not open app to see navigation

Basic steps to accomplish users goal: Create or find a workout. Then record amount of weight being used and the amount of reps the user has done.

Principles of design: The overall unity and balance of the app is consistent from screen to screen. The emphasis on each screen is to point the user directly where they should be pressing / tapping on the screen to progress. I feel some of the color choices and layout features creates a distraction from a natural movement to read the app.

Visual hierarchy: I feel the second screenshot has images that distract the eye from the text on the left. The 3rd screenshot, the red is a distraction from reading what is underneath and the larger blue rectangles draw your eyes straight to them after market a set complete.

Typeface selections and sizes: Mostly used San Serif Fonts at a smaller size.

Dominant and subordinate colors: Dominant Colors: White and Grey Subordinate Colors: Red and Blue

Illustrations, images, videos, icons, data visualization: Images are photographs of a person performing the exercises.

App 3: Workout

Images from AppStore

Initial observations (mood, feel, etc.): Seems to be open and easy to use. Visually I wish they would have taken the dark promotional image background and used it as the background to the app. I personally like darker apps vs lighter apps.

Main features: Only App That Supports Super-Sets, Only App with Variable Rep Speed, Record you reps and weight for each exercise.

Navigational choices: Could not open app to see navigation.

Basic steps to accomplish users goal: Create or find a workout. Then record amount of weight being used and the amount of reps the user has done.

Principles of design: The overall unity and balance of the app is consistent from screen to screen. The emphasis on each screen is to point the user directly where they should be pressing / tapping on the screen to progress.

Visual hierarchy: Each screen is easy to navigate and understand what to do.

Typeface selections and sizes: - Mostly used San Serif Fonts at a smaller size. Workout images use a variety of fonts based on what the workout is titled. “Sexy Body” workout has a Script font which can be interpreted as a “Sexy Font.”

Dominant and subordinate colors: Dominant Colors: White and Grey Subordinate Colors: Black and Yellow

Illustrations, images, videos, icons, data visualization: Images are photographs of a person performing the exercises
