This has majorly thwarted several trades, enterprises and Business. As a result, almost every industry is bracing itself for a rough few months. However, the on-demand fitness industry seems immune to the effects of coronavirus. Many On-demand Fitness App like  Fitbit coach, Blogilates and  8fit are encountering a sudden uprise in popularity compared to February 2020.

Must-have features of Health and Fitness App

Let’s look at the best features to be included in the Fitness App.

  1. Registration Process:

Initially, a user needs to create an account through which he can register with the app. The user has to mention the name, email id and mobile number. A verification code or OTP will be sent to the registered mobile number to verify its credentials.

  1. User Profile:

The next step is to enable the user to enter his personal information such as height, weight, age, body type, gender etc. He may further add to his physical condition or illness such as diabetes etc.

  1. Social Media Integration:

Sometimes it is too bustling for a user to login via his email, and he may not want to disclose it. So, other options should be available such as login through social media platforms like Facebook, Google+ and Twitter etc.

  1. Wearable Devices Integration:

The mobile app developer has to keep in mind that the development of only health and fitness apps for the user is not going to solve the objective.

The application should be suitably connected to various external devices, especially wearable devices such as the user can track their movements quickly to perform exercise routines efficiently.

  1. Take care of a workout or diet plan:

The primary function of the application is to help the user track his daily physical activities. The app maintains data such as distance travelled by running, walking, cycling and more.

Apart from this, the app also counts the calorie intake of the user. The user can also schedule his or her exercise program as per their convenience.

  1. Geolocation:

Geolocation has ensured one of the basic features of almost all mobile apps, and therefore, health and fitness apps cannot be excluded.

Geolocation monitors directions and routes as you go for a walk or cycling.

  1. Push Notifications:

The push notification option does not let the user miss any required exercise program or skip meals. In addition, it keeps the user updated about features and additions to upcoming events.

  1. Payment Options:

In fact, most of the services provided in health and fitness apps are free. Nevertheless, there are some chargeable services. If you are selling appropriate equipment or health drinks, then it becomes important to add payment options.
