Karen O’Connell is a Certified Personal Fitness Trainer, Corrective Exercise Specialist & Level 1 Nutritionist based in Sherwood Park, Alberta, who is passionate about helping women “lose weight without restrictions!” After helping more than 100 women achieve their health and fitness goals, Karen developed a mobile application designed for those who are unable to access in-person fitness training but still want to feel and look their best.


Kind Fitness approached Vertical Motion for support in fixing its broken mobile app after its previous developer neglected to provide proper communication, project management, ongoing maintenance, and software fixes. With the application down, Kind Fitness Owner Karen O’Connell required a rapid response to restore her mobile app so she could continue to help her clients achieve their health and fitness goals.



After a thorough investigation into the mobile application crash, Vertical Motion sprang into action working to restore application functionality. The recovery and refactoring process included the successful repair of front-end software bugs, payment gateway errors, application infrastructure changes, video upload failures, and data processing difficulties. Following these fixes and several layers of quality assurance testing, Vertical Motion was able to relaunch the Kind Fitness app allowing Karen to once again do what she does best, helping women reach their goals.


  • Restored mobile app functionality for re-release to app stores
  • Improved customer experience, usability, and payment processing
  • Enhanced admin controls for easier content uploading
"Working with Vertical Motion has been a very positive experience! I felt informed throughout the mobile app development process and educated on what, why, and how they were working to improve my application. Today, I am thrilled to be able to offer my clients an even better app than before."
