Netpulse is a SaaS platform for fitness and wellness companies, such as gyms, studios, etc, that integrates gym technology, media and activities into one experience and helps gym goers stay fit for life. They are the largest provider of branded, mobile health-club apps.

  • Developed an interactive platform that connects equipment, third-party apps and fitness trackers
  • Created an interactive, club-branded experience for app users
  • Multi-year partnership where Star has provided architecture, engineering and white-label design services

The idea

Netpulse wanted to develop the Netpulse One platform, a digital fitness application that would enable gyms to create a branded, engaging social fitness community. This interactive platform would connect exercise equipment, third-party apps and fitness trackers. It would enable clubs, trainers and customers to efficiently access, collect and analyze fitness data. The app would provide a new revenue stream for fitness club owners, and enable customers to enhance their training and workout sessions using personalized goal setting and fitness challenges.


Working together with the Netpulse team, we developed the NetPulse One platform. Star executed the engineering phase of the project, developed an analytics dashboard and integrated third-party fitness devices and apps (e.g. Fitbit). The customizable platform also captures data from the gyms’ fitness machines and incorporates it into the club’s ecosystem.


“We chose to work with Star because of their stellar reputation, and their talents across all the technologies that we required to realize the Netpulse One platform. Their dedication and passion for the project was beyond what I expected, and our work together can only be defined as a partnership”
