3 Day Design Sprint
This was an intensive 3-day Design Sprint, participated by fellow classmates in my UX Program.
The prompt: Design a Workout App using some of the latest design tools and practices! Deliver a working prototype and a case study with user research, a minimum of one persona, user flows, and wireframes/mockups.
Provided with an open-ended prompt, and some secondary research, we identified a lack of motivation, and sticking to a diet and exercise regimen as our design problem: We all know that exercise is a good thing. Among the broad spectrum of factors that influence someone's daily exercise habits, what are the sources of motivation?
As a result, we came up with A-List Fitness: A mobile-based fitness app that influences and motivates users to incorporate healthy eating and daily exercise by enabling competition among users, and celebrity/influencer workout regimens, as workout inspiration. We do after all live in a time where some social media influencers get paid more than the US President.
Our teamwork won us each paid internships with start-ups at the end of our coursework. (I interned at Open Stage Project)

Running on the assumption that those interested in working out are doing so to get fit. I wanted to know more of what motivated them?
15 participants were surveyed.
From that research we discovered:
40% answered friends, family and colleagues as fitness and wellness role models
27% listed celebrities and influencers as workout role models or their body goals
