Behavior Changing Exercise App to Adopt a Healthier Lifestyle: 7 Daily Moves

In today's fast-paced world, prioritizing fitness and well-being often takes a backseat amidst the hustle and bustle of daily life. However, maintaining a healthy lifestyle is crucial for both physical and mental well-being. Recognizing this need, Ms. Sonam Mehra, co-founder of 7Daily Moves and an experienced fitness coach, noticed a gap in existing exercise apps - people often struggle to derive real benefits from their gym sessions, often due to a lack of motivation or repetitive routines.

Seeking to revolutionize the fitness landscape, Ms. Sonam Mehra partnered with SoluteLabs to build the product. Her goal was to create a comprehensive and engaging platform for diverse fitness needs, making workouts enjoyable and accessible, especially for reluctant exercisers.

Understanding the Problem Statement

The 7Daily Moves app is a specially designed native mobile application serving as a personalized trainer for daily workouts centered around fundamental human movements. Understanding the dissatisfaction with standard gym routines, the main motive of Sonam Mehra was to make fitness accessible and manageable for everyone, regardless of their lifestyle or fitness level.

The concept behind 7Daily Moves was to offer a series of simple, effective exercises that could be done in short intervals, requiring no special equipment, thereby breaking down barriers to regular physical activity. The app should be designed to guide users through various workouts that could be performed anywhere, fitting exercise into daily life without overwhelming time commitments.

She came to SoluteLabs for developing the product from scratch - crafting an eye-catching logo for the application and engaging gifs through gamification, which can help 7Daily Moves distinguish itself from its competitors. Additionally, she desired an interactive UI design for an application to captivate users. Also, their application should be able to efficiently manage server loads with the help of top notch tech stack offered by us.

The Journey from Concept to Creation

As we know, the market is flooded with exercise apps. Our challenge was clear: stand out or fade away. Exceptional animations became our battleground, distinguishing us from the rest. Yet, it wasn't just about visuals; our app's success hinged on two critical factors: an extensive number of exercises and a captivating animated character.

So, our team concentrated on implementing gamification to maintain user engagement and generate positive word-of-mouth. This helped in creating an attractive, playful animated character to instill a sense of empowerment in users, encouraging them to participate in workouts. This helped our client stand out in a competitive market.

In terms of the development of landing pages and blogs, our backend's Ruby on Rails architecture and AWS deployment ensured strong performance and scalability, which are essential for managing the app's expanding user base. This was especially noticeable when we encountered a sudden increase in app downloads, which placed considerable stress on our server. However, our team's strong understanding of the tech stack allowed us to manage the situation effortlessly.

In the meantime, the iOS and Android native apps provided users with a seamless experience, leveraging the distinct features of each platform to their maximum potential, facilitated by Swift and Java development languages.

In order to visualize the design and functionality of the app, landing page, and blog, our team utilized Sketch. This tool enabled designers to generate interactive prototypes that replicated user interactions and assessed usability. Moreover, we focused on enhancing our brainstorming process for developing the logo of 7Daily Moves, starting from scratch and culminating in the final design.

Also, our team's involvement in marketing activities such as SEO and SMO amplified their app's visibility, attracting a wider audience and boosting downloads. Furthermore, our continuous focus on innovation, with the introduction of new features, bug fixes, and enhancements, kept users engaged and satisfied, fostering loyalty and satisfied results.
