Mobile App Concept

Overview

By freeing fitness from performance and bringing play back into everyday life, OV is building a community of Recreational Enthusiasts who believe #DoingThings - moving your body and having fun with friends - is the surest way to a happy and healthy life. Outdoor Voices is looking to channel its unique outlook on fitness into a mobile application that encourages the growth of their online OV community, allows users to access live and on-demand fitness classes, and expands its lifestyle brand.

What is a "lifestyle brand" anyway?

Lifestyle brands seek to inspire, guide, and motivate people, with the goal of their products contributing to the definition of the consumer’s way of life.

These brands have values that run deep and are embodied in every aspect of their company. Similar to OV, there is a focus on sustainability, community, and fitness. Patagonia, L.L. Bean, and LuLuLemon respectively do a great job with one aspect, but all three fail to effectively integrate these values in one place. This is the gap in the market OV and our team sought to fill.

Considerations

What types of "wellness" classes would interest the Outdoor Voices user?

What interactions can be implemented to create a sense of community?

How can users monitor their goals and their progress? 

 OV users need a way to be motivated TO achieve their wellness goals because they lead busy lives and find it hard to stay accountable TO A ROUTINE ON their OWN.
