There are more than 97,000 health and fitness apps on the market today, but not all of these apps are successful. Some of these fitness app designs are clunky, ugly, and busy, which ultimately makes it hard for people to enjoy using them.

That’s why it’s a good idea to create a simple, aesthetic design when you want to develop a fitness app. User experience and user interface are aspects of a fitness app design that some health and fitness apps may overlook, but they can definitely decide whether a user stays with your app or not.

With that said, remember that looks aren’t everything in health and fitness apps. Whatever type of fitness app you make has to be functional and solve a problem, as well as being easy to use and nice to look at.

So, here are 4 health and fitness apps with neat and functional UI’s (User Interfaces) to inspire you when you want to develop a fitness app.

1- Argus
2- Freeletics
3- Daily Yoga
4- Map My Fitness

1. Argus

Argus is one of those health and fitness apps that blend multiple types to create a fun and functional design. It’s a fitness tracker app that comes with many features, making it detailed, layered, and functional. Basically, it has everything the user needs in one app.

Firstly, there’s a section for easy goal-setting, where you can see all your daily activities in one neat glance- steps taken, calories burned, amount of water drunk, and the list continues. The app also reminds you to keep on working for the goals you have set for the day. There’s a whole list of activities you can choose from and add to your daily goals, like how much coffee you drink.

Secondly, you can use the filters and charts the app provides you to compare data, and really see your progress. The colorful hexagons set Argus apart from some other boring health and fitness apps, too.

Apart from looks, the app gives you the opportunity to have a real-life fitness coach, which builds trust by showing how much Argus cares about a rich and detailed user experience.


2. Freeletics

When it comes to all-in-one health and fitness apps, Freeletics really shines. It’s a fitness app design for everybody, and it knows how to “be” for everybody. Let me explain.

So, you download and install the app. The next thing to do is answering a small questionnaire about yourself ( how fit you are, what your fitness goals are, and what your favorite training style is), so that it can analyze your data and provide a good user plan. The minimalist style of mostly black and white keeps everything simple and stress-free as well.

After this step is done, the app gives you a wide array of journeys to choose from and complete. Each journey focuses on a different goal. Most importantly, you can know more about a journey before you begin it- the “What to expect” section tells you about the intensity of the workouts, and you also get to see what results you can expect from it. All these nuances help make a fitness app that puts the user first.


3. Daily Yoga

In designing the user interfaces of health and fitness apps, the color palette matters a lot, because users tend to prefer different colors according to their age, gender, or other factors. Daily Yoga is an app that’s geared toward yogis all around the world, and it has understood this concept quite well.

One of the first things you notice about Daily Yoga is its availability. It has an inviting UI so that nothing will seem intimidating for beginners. We could say it’s one of those health and fitness apps that remember to include everyone. There are different features and courses for advancing flexibility, staying healthy, maternal health, building strength for women, and so on.

Daily Yoga offers over 100 yoga classes for people of all levels. On top of that, it has the largest yoga community, which brings people closer to both the app and each other.

In addition, the color palette and user interface are also pretty cozy and convenient- with its wonderful organization of data, the user is able to see all the information of their activities in a cohesive, accessible way.


4. Map My Fitness

A great UI design has high readability, and a color palette that matches the company logo (for better brand recognition), and what the target audience wants. It inspires user satisfaction with custom icons and photos that make it an original and clean design, too. MapMyFitness has all of these.

MapMyFitness is one of those health and fitness apps that have chosen a minimalistic style for their UI design. From the get-go, you’re faced with a comprehensive home page that includes all the important features. You can start running right away, or choose a plan to follow- it’s as simple as that.

Unlike many health and fitness apps, MapMyFitness shows time and time again that its priority is the users:
The challenges keep everything more interesting and refreshing, and there’s even an option for adding friends- so you can “Get better together”.
