The Story

Les Mills approached AgilityIO to engage in our full end-to-end software development process. When compared to industry-leading fitness apps, Les Mills lacked common features such: as goal-setting, goal-tracking, and an outdated UI.

While ideating the design process, we focused on keeping a consistent experience for existing users. The biggest challenge we faced was introducing live video streaming and integrating large libraries hosted on Vimeo.

User Experience

Beginning with our Product Discovery Workshop, we collaborated with Les Mills to identify new core features and explored different onboarding journeys, allowing users to customize their fitness goals.

We created a series of wireframes, designed all new iconography, then developed the frontend and backend for Les Mills On Demand.
