I designed an app to make it easier for individuals to track their fitness and nutrition. The app was designed to make the process of tracking and achieving health milestones easier.
This problem was worth solving because of the growing focus on personal health and physical fitness. There are many apps available for this, however I wanted to focus on what would make the process easier for experienced individuals and beginners.

“As a member of the gym, and doing at home workouts
I want to understand of exercises and movements better
So I can adapt my workouts and make better progress”
Through research I developed a user persona that would guide the design of the app OnTrack.
Nicole's Pain Points
The fitness app will let users track, time, edit, and learn about fitness which will affect Nicole, an active and busy professional by Teaching her about fitness, and providing resources to improve her performance. We will measure performance by reviews and long term use of the app.
We explored other fitness apps and compared their strengths and weaknesses to ensure OnTrack is competitive in the market.
After executing user research via interviews I built wireframes to begin the design process for building the app.
After building wireframes I tested the initial designs with a group of users to determine usability and needs. From there I further refined the app design, and determined feature requirements.
High fidelity mock ups were created with brand colours, typography, an iconography in mind.
This project was created for the Google UX Design certification, and is currently still in progress.
