Gym directory for travelers

The world's largest database with more than 130.000 gyms worldwide. No matter where you are traveling, you will always be able to find a nearby gym.


The issue of finding a gym during travelingturned into a project idea

Project idea

TrainAway is a global network of gyms for travelers, which makes workouts during trips convenient and painless.

Target audience

The products are meant to have a global distribution. Still, Europe is first targeted for distribution. The site and apps will have 50,000 users in first six months with 1000 concurrent users initially.

Project challenges
  • Global presence and fast scalability
  • Interactive and intuitive design
  • Fast search of gyms and payment for workouts
  • Effective user acquisition and engagement

Clients received a scalable solution with an efficient monetization model providing people access to gyms all over the world.

Planning stage


Clients had vision on:

  • Business model basics
  • Initial design concept
  • Desired list of features
  • Project release deadline

Information received from clients goes through analysis:

  • Dedicated Business Analyst
  • 2 weeks of research and planning
  • Around 20 meetings to clarify the requirements

As a result, we provide clients with:

  • Specification document
  • Putting a project team together
  • Wireframes
  • Clickable prototype
  • Project estimate

Main features of the project

After the planning stage, our developers started working on the platform.

Dealing with financial operations in apps

To ensure secure payment processing and protect a sensitive financial information of customers, it was decided to integrate Stripe payment processor. The app saves the payment history, as well as apply discounts and use bonuses.


Solving the issue of finding and choosing a gym

There is also a really flexible search feature in the app where multiple filters can be applied. Users can search by the name of a gym, by city or apply category filtration where they choose what type of exercises they prefer and the app will show them just those places which offer needed services

User acquisition and engagement functionality

Taken that scalability plan is bold, the features aimed at user acquiring and engagement were implemented at once. They were: the ability to invite friends in return for discounts, give a pass as present to anyone and receive membership-based bonuses. Follow-up features facilitate efficient user retention

We’re very happy with Androswift. They seem to work in the way that we do, and we have a close collaboration with them. Every day we talk to the developers and outline what needs to be done.

We found Androswift had played the main role in helping with our customized web development, web applications and plugin customization. Having Androswift on onboard gave us the confidence to say yes to all jobs! Requested project edits were returned quickly.

I was at first worried about doing business with developers in another country as I am based in the UK, but I had spoken to a guy from Androswift called Kalpesh, who assured me that using Androswift for all my development work would not be a risk at all and they have proven me right.
