Doing sports on a regular basis is beneficial for personal health and well-being. This paper introduces the concept of a mobile app which has the goal to assist people already keen on doing sports. The app enables the creation and usage of outdoor exercises at everyday locations, e.g. stairs or benches. Within this paper, we present our concept as well as results of an initially conducted user study on people’s ability to identify possible spots for exercises outdoors and whether they are able to enhance existing spots with their knowledge.
