Who is FiTS? A team of some 20 passionate and offbeat individuals in the heart of Mannheim, Germany. We speak six different languages, but share one goal – helping people get and stay in shape, without requiring them to become fitness fanatics.

In our team, psychologists and sports scientists work every day to provide you with the best health-related content as well as exercise plans that are tailored to your needs. But it’s not just the content – the FiTS design also wins hearts and minds.

In your feedback, you’re always telling us that FiTS has a clearly structured design that helps you in the pursuit of your goals. And it’s received outside recognition as well – FiTS has won the German Design Award 2019 in the category “Excellent Communications Design.”

But rather than blow our own horn, here’s what the German Design Council, which confers the award each year, had to say:

“This very well-designed and readily understandable training app helps users realize their desire to do more sports consistently over the long haul. This is facilitated by features such as a schedule for the user’s workout, exercise videos, and much more. A superb app that is appealing and motivating from the get-go, and that eliminates obstacles and provides congenial support.”

By the way, the German Design Council is a brand and design association representing companies and individuals interested in promoting good German design. Set up as a foundation in 1953 at the initiative of the German parliament, it supports industry in adding value to its brands through design. This makes the German Design Council one of the world’s leading centers of competence for communication and brand management in the field of design.

This year’s award jury was made up of 42 international design experts from fields of business and industry as well as research and academia. The jury evaluated more than 5,000 submissions in the various categories in the fields of Excellent Product Design and Excellent Communications Design.
