That’s exactly what the Q team was doing in the discovery phase. By aligning business goals, trainers and users’ needs, idea for a digital lifestyle and training platform was built.

Logic Behind The Digital Flow


By establishing user groups Q team started to create the logic behind it. Training seekers would need to register and login, explore the application through available video training, and choose their plan of workout by difficulty and workout type.


Trainers however are limited to two options. Full availability of uploading training videos or a limited engagement for broadening the community.

Nowadays, especially after COVID 19, social distancing is kind of a complying guideline to live by. It’s definitely a strange chapter in our modern-day life since we are social beings and have a sense of universality. Building a much-needed training app for Airex users showed us how important community really is for our physical and mental wellbeing.


Providing the users with training video content and recommendations on a healthy lifestyle helped Airex boost the value of their products and engage the training community even more.
