Following the success of circuit training programs like CrossFit, a lot of individuals are taking to high intensity interval training (HIIT). HIIT workouts require the athlete to perform at high intensity for certain periods of time with a rest in between, with a typical workout looking like 10 rounds of an exercise, with a 45 second rest in between.

Design the workflow required for someone to create a timer specifically for HIIT workouts, paying particular attention to the visual feedback given to the user mid-workout. Keep in mind the context of the person using the application, they might be in a noisy gym some distance away from the device, so you may need to ensure the screen is readable and the required information is conveyed.

Design a maximum of 2-4 screens for either web or mobile, providing as much background thinking as you can.

Features

The application could include:

  • Different timers displays.
  • Complex time inputs.
  • Rounds with different times.
  • Warm-up and warm-down.
  • Aural feedback.

Keep in mind that these are not the only features that might be required, and you should use your initiative to ensure a usable and interesting experience.

Please Prioritize

  • Good usability.
  • Appropriate aesthetics for the demographic, tone, mobile/touch paradigms, etc.
  • Insight into your process, including any sketches, brainstorms, notes, wireframes, and assumptions on the product.
