Holistic 5 page
Run Free Training is a virtual coaching service for runners. Founded by Ryan Hall, an Olympic marathon runner, the program not only offers training advice but there is also a nutritionist and mobility coach on staff. The program is built on the holistic five methods: training, nutrition, rest, the 1%, and your internal game.
Run Free Technologies had a 60 % bounce rate in addition users had navigation and certain pages, such as about page", were never visited. Ideally, they were are seeking an overall UX audit of the existing site, with a focus on usability and accessibility. The top priorities:
Priority 1: Improve CTA’s for free consultation form and sign up/payment process.
Priority 2: Implement impactful storytelling to show the ‘Holistic Five’ Principles through visual icons and our virtual coaching process.
Priority 3: effectively communicate client success stories for both the home page and Testimonials page.
What would be a successful outcome of this project?
We are looking to increase our "Free Consultation" submissions, Paid Memberships, and improve the bounce rate.
We interviewed 12 different runners to discuss their wants, needs, and habits as a runner
What did we discover?
To gain a better understanding of the Run Free we chose to conduct contextual inquiries on the 12 different runners
What's the problem?
Old site map
What journey do they go on?
What are the steps to develop?
We proposed a global navigation/ site map using a card sorting analysis, which had a positive response throughout all iterations of the design

What was observed?
In each design phase, the users wanted and need to see specific information pertaining to each page.
