The sedentary lifestyle and growing health concerns have made people warier about their health. With more and more people becoming conscious about their well-being, the fitness industry has seen an upward growth trend in the past few decades.  
Recent Studies show that the Online/Virtual fitness market is expected to reach $59.23 billion by 2027. And the number of health & Fitness Clubs turnaround will reach USD 136.59 Billion by 2028, with an annual growth rate of 33.10 % per year.
Despite being a growing sector, the fitness industry is largely unorganized and lacks a definite structure due to the unavailability of fitness service providers and poor fitness culture worldwide. There are still challenges to be addressed. 
This case study will shed light on how FitLife, a comprehensive fitness mobile app, was built to address the challenges in the fitness industry.
Our client, a Fitness startup in Africa, realized the gap in the fitness industry in terms of consumer demand vs. the services available in the market. They wish to build a solution to address these challenges and create an organized space for fitness enthusiasts’ every need. 
The client approached Signity Solution with an Idea they wished to actualize but needed to know the way forward. It was a concept that needed to be checked for its business viability. Being from a non-technical background with no in-house IT team, the client relied entirely on their development partners to navigate the entire process to build a robust product. They needed a  reliable development company to guide them in bringing their vision to life.
Understanding the requirements, our team stepped in as a consultant for the client, assisting them throughout their fitness app development journey from ideation to the final product delivery & maintenance. 

Project Case Study with Our Solution

Our experts created a step-by-step plan for fitness app development, starting with concept validation. We interviewed multiple industry stakeholders, from gym owners, fitness trainers, and users, to understand their challenges. We listed the challenges they were facing to outline the solution's features. 
After an in-depth study of the African fitness market, the team built an extensive on-demand fitness marketplace. An app that allows users to book services like gyms, trainers, celebrity trainers, online coaching classes, fitness events, or accessories sellers on a single platform.
A one-stop solution for all fitness needs of an enthusiast, which they could avail of with simple clicks on their mobile phone from the comfort of their home. It also allowed the service providers to reach a larger audience, eliminating dead time and increasing income.
