TrainingHub: Mobile application for sports lovers

Product vision and community: to enrich the training world

The idea of the TrainingHub was made by a famous NBA Star and TrainingHub’s owner – Ben Simmons. In cooperation with product owners from the client’s side, our team of designers, user testing, and development experts realized a vision of sports amateurs and trainers’ community built both in-app and beyond.

Prologue

Our cooperation started by defining the demand and value proposition through user flow testing and core functionalities of an MVP. Eventually, we delivered a comprehensive platform for athletes on Android and iOS. Our shared goal was to bring the explosive power of the creator economy to sports. Let us guide you through the whole process of how we changed the game.

First touchdown:

TrainingHub workshops & goals

After conducting market research and defining major rivals and key differentiators, we identified clear goals and value propositions for sports lovers of all levels.

Second touchdown:

User flows, wireframes & user testing

User flows

User flow mapping enabled the project team to outline in-app mechanisms and develop high-level wireframes for different app views and functions.

Wireframes

While creating wireframes, we emphasized the most important information for users with a well-adjusted and clear UI. This groundwork ensured the TrainingHub’s app quality of experience on the user’s path.

User testing

After conducting several tests consisting of free exploration and task fulfillment sessions, our client could ultimately be sure that his digital product will stand out from the crowd in terms of UX.

Third touchdown:
Community-centric features we delivered for the app

The app main page: The Hub

The primary goal of TrainingHub is to create a place where anyone can get coaching and make money doing what they love. The Hub – app’s main page lets users see available training slots, next sessions, and upcoming events and connect with other members to make new fit friends!

Ranking in the app

The internal system is loaded with data to calculate the best average ranking rate. Based on several conditions, we managed to make it as valuable for users as possible.

Booking and session approval

In TrainingHub, booking a training session takes only a few steps. The process enables users to pick the right time for training, choose the closest location and make a payment directly in-app. After the booking, their session status is visible, and it is still possible to rearrange it anytime users need it.

Visual design

TrainingHub’s visual identity was all about highlighting the power of movement, community, and adventure.

TrainingHub development approach

TrainingHub needed us to think outside of the box and use our power and experience to make data storage choices for the software.

Training-Hub testimonial

Our team was eager to take up a new approach to communication within the architecture in backend environments. Even though we commercially submitted this pattern in NodeJS for the first time, we had enough energy to implement and test it. The results? Exceptionally improved UX and all database costs associated with accessing the data.”

Results

The growth-fostering cooperation with our client enabled us to discover, design, and develop a long-awaited solution.

Behind the TrainingHub app stands a stable, fast, and transparent server thanks to the strong isolation of reading and writing from the Data Store, which brings the system closer to Data-Driven and opens its way to Event Sourcing.

All efforts contributed to a successful and celebrated app launch, enhanced with PR and social media buzz and a dedicated Forbes interview with Ben Simmons. This is only the beginning!

Key takeaways

Make community needs the real center

Our mission was built around an inclusive place where anyone can connect to movement at any time and place. That’s why we focused the app development process on user requirements, objectives, and feedback.

Be open to new project approaches

The maturity of the development team and a well-established partnership with our client enabled stakeholders to take ownership and think freely out of the box while working on the design, UX, and app development.
