Most Downloaded Fitness and Workout Apps in 2022
To empower app marketers, AppTweak created AppDNA, a unique classification model that divides app store categories into more comprehensive classifications that better match an app or game’s intended purpose.
AppDNA is a very powerful model that allows you to get more specific benchmarking insights for your business. For example, when looking at the Health & Fitness category on the app stores, you will see a wide variety of apps ranging from meditation apps to diet apps and even sleep trackers. AppDNA further categorizes the Health & Fitness category into more precise categories, so you can compare your app performance with apps that provide the same core functionality. In this blog, we will focus on the most popular DNA within the Health & Fitness category: fitness and workout.

Health & Fitness category trends in 2021 – AppDNA.
Fitness & workout, weight loss, and outdoor activities apps are the 3 most downloaded AppDNAs in the Health & Fitness category.
The share of mental health apps increased in 2022 (5.1%) compared to 2021 (3.9%). Mental health apps are typically low-cost and easy to integrate into our daily lives and habits, contributing to their growing popularity.
On the other hand, the share of women’s health apps has decreased from 2021 (5.5%) to 2022 (3.9%). This drop could be resulting from the controversy around period tracking apps data usage. Many also believe that these apps collected data that could be leveraged in a legal setting against app users.
