How to Make a Fitness App

40% of US citizens named healthcare one of their Top 3 priorities. The majority of consumers are very demanding on which health supplementing apps to use. As industry experts, we always advise to focus on the mission of your app and choose only specialized and worthwhile content that will be appreciated by users.

Offline content

Allow users to download workout videos, healthy recipes or any other useful information directly to their devices.

Plan builders

By launching a nutrition app you can provide users with meal plans, based on their goals, weight and food preferences. It is advised to build such apps around curated content or personal brand. You can supply users with ready-made solutions or create it with the help of smart algorithms for each user personally.

Body-fat percentage estimation

This information is extremely important for professional sportsmen during the preparations for the competitions. At the same time, people who are working on their weight loss require this estimation as well. The percentage can be calculated based on the sports activities tracking and the data that users fill in during onboarding.


Usually, people lack the motivation to do sports. You can change this by adding progress bars, mentorship programs, or prompt reaching new levels only upon the completion of the previous ones.

Wearables support

Google Fit SDK is used in fitness application development to connect smartphones with wearable devices. Meanwhile, HealthKit API by Apple is more focused on deep health data analysis that makes iOS fitness apps even more engaging.


By building a fitness app you get a wide range of monetization options starting from ads in a free version. On the other hand, when buying premium account users can get an access to the custom training programs or meal plans. One more win-win monetization strategy is turning off ads for premium users. Or, you can add such additional functions as real-time performance data, expert guidance, hydration measurement, logging food, etc.
