We worked with Getahead on the design and development of their new app, which focuses on improving mental health alongside physical fitness.
About The Client
The Getahead app was created to promote the understanding and practice of improving mental health alongside sport and exercise. In providing a training ground for everyday users to gain access to mindset skills previously reserved for elite athletes, they’re enabling users to become as mentally fit as they are physically.
Getahead came to Arch looking to build on their digital product offering, which at the time consisted primarily of a web app with journaling functionality at its core. Their goal was to increase their brand accessibility, and as such, were looking at how a mobile app could diversify this, ensuring users could access the Getahead programme anytime, anywhere.
Core to the aims and objectives of the project set out in the discovery phase, it was key that the Getahead app gave users access to a full range of mental training techniques, as opposed to the singular offerings commonplace a number of apps within the Google Play and iOS store.
Essential to allowing this extensive range of features to be included, while maintaining ease of use, our design team worked to develop a high level of fluidity within the application’s UX. By doing this, they were able to achieve a sense of tactility within the designs, adding haptics and intuitive gestures to the user experience, increasing accessibility for those using the app on the move and in outdoor environments.
The application offers users an effective solution to being able to engage with the holistic approach to fitness fostered by Getahed. Providing them a one-stop-shop for a range of mental health improving practices such as journaling, self evaluation surveys with engaging UI and historical views that allow users to compare trends within their wellbeing states over time.
