The app uses that information to create routines that challenge you in the right ways so you can see gains and improvements without injury.

Pact

Free; wagering money is optional

Pact (formerly known as Gympact), isn’t going to tell you how to work out or when to work out, but it will get you motivated to get to the gym and get your workouts done. The app allows you to wager money on whether or not you’ll complete your workouts—so if you reach your goals, you’ll earn cold hard cash. The money comes from a communal pot of users, so the money you earn is collected from slackers who don’t get to the gym. But it works both ways—if you don’t meet your goals it’s you who pays up.

There are plenty of great apps to keep track of your running mileage, and a clear winner when it comes to cycling (Strava, duh). But it’s a bit harder to pick a winner when you’re lifting in the gym. Until recently, all the apps were clunky and hard to use. Now…well, only some of them are.

Contents

Our Favorite: Strong

Strong (free on iOS and Android) is the clear winner. It’s easy to use, even when you’re exhausted mid-workout. With the free app, you can create three workouts, and check off your sets as you complete them.

Advertisement

The app fills in your previous weights and reps so you don’t have to fiddle with numbers every time. It syncs with Apple Health and Google Fit, meaning that if you spend 45 minutes logging exercises on the app, you’ll automatically get credit for a 45-minute strength workout. Strong also keeps track of your personal bests, and it calculates your theoretical one-rep max of each exercise based on the reps you do. (For example, if you bench 90 pounds five times, it lets you know that you could probably do a single rep at 100 pounds.)

The pro version is worthwhile if you’re in the gym a lot. For $4.99/month or $29.99/year, you can save as many workouts as you like. (I upgraded when I switched from a two-day routine to one with four different workouts.) You also get a plate calculator, which tells you how many plates, and what size, to add to each end of the bar to reach your desired weight. (For that 90 pound bench, you’ll add two 10-pound plates and a 2.5 pound plate to each end of a 45-pound bar.) The subscription also unlocks a calculator for warm-up sets, a body measurement tracker, and a bunch of analytics to monitor your progress.

Best on Apple Watch: JeFit

While Strong can store a workout on the watch, it doesn’t have a mode where you can swap back and forth between the watch and the phone on the same workout. If you know that you will do exactly your planned workout, with no deviations, the Watch version of Strong might fit your needs.

But JeFit does the job much more smoothly. If the app is running on your phone, you get a little screen on your watch to log the current exercise and start a rest timer to let you know when to do the next set. If you want to do your exercises in a different order, or add something new, you can make those tweaks on the phone and your watch will follow along.

JeFit is free on iOS and Android, and like Strong, it hides some of its features behind a subscription.

Everything Else

Fitnotes (Android only) is a bit clunkier than Strong and doesn’t have as many features, but it does the job and won’t bug you to buy a subscription (although there is a $2.99 version of the app that includes some graphs to track your progress.)

Advertisement

Progression (Android only) syncs everything to Google Drive. The pro version, $5.49 as a one-time purchase, unlocks some analytics.

Intensity (Android and iOS) focuses on your total poundage for the day (adding up all your lifts) and on progress graphs, and it has popular lifting programs like 5/3/1 and Stronglifts built in. The basics are free but you’ll need a $3.99/month subscription to unlock some of the features.

Subscriptions renew at the original price. You can turn off auto-renew at any time and still receive full functionality until the end of your current period, but no refund can be provided for unused portions of the subscription. Any unused portion of a free trial period, if offered, will be forfeited when the user purchases a subscription to that publication, where applicable.
If you’ve previously purchased “Unlock Strong” or “Strong Combo Pack”, you’ll be able to use the Restore Purchases option in the app for access to all Strong PRO features.
These prices are for customers in the United States and may vary depending on your iTunes Account settings. In-app purchases and subscriptions cannot be shared using Family Sharing.

I’m too busy. I’m not a morning person. I’m travelling.

When it comes to excuses to skip the gym, we’re full of them.

But whether it’s not having time, not knowing what exercise to do or simply not being able to find the motivation to exercise: there’s an app for that.

Since we so often rely on our phones to entertain us, teach us and distract us from the real world, why not look to them for a little help when it comes to getting your fitness back on track? When you need that extra push to get off the couch, consider downloading one of these apps designed to combat the workout excuses that plague us.

Download one or download them all, either way, a killer workout is just a click away.

Excuse #1: I’m constantly on the go; I can’t commit to a gym

App: Aaptiv

Price: One-month free trial; $8.33/month

It can be hard to keep up with a fitness routine when you’re constantly away from home. Instead of letting every work trip or vacation put a dent in your stride — and struggling to get back on the bandwagon when you get home — give Aaptiv a spot on your home screen. The app will allow you to keep up with your workouts wherever you are: whether you have a hotel gym at your disposal or need to squeeze in a workout in your room. The app boasts over 2,500 workouts audio classes led by an expert trainer with an accompanying soundtrack, with new classes added every week. You can filter workouts based on fitness level, workout duration and type — so no, only having ten minutes and no equipment isn’t an excuse.

Excuse #2: I don’t have time to workout

App: 7-Minute Workout

Price: $2.99

7-Minute Workout

Finding time may be the biggest obstacle to committing to a workout routine. As much as we would all love to take an hour to de-stress in a yoga class or take a long walk in the park, sometimes (okay, most of the time) busy schedules just won’t allow it. For those jam-packed days, the 7-Minute Workout app is there to help you squeeze in some exercise. The app leads you through 12 high-intensity exercises that can be performed in just seven minutes, creating a workout that gets your heart rate up enough to make a real impact on your waistline (but not your schedule). The only catch? “I don’t have time” is no longer a viable excuse.

Excuse #3: I’m completely lost in the weight room

App: FitBod

Price: Free; upgrade to elite member for $7.99/month

We know that strength training is a critical component of any effective fitness routine, but not everyone feels at home in the weight room. By going into her workouts with a plan, Wilhelmina model, personal trainer, and NYSC Lab Master Instructor, Bianca Paige tells NBC News BETTER that she avoids the chance of getting distracted or losing time trying to figure out a workout on the spot. (And one look at her killer body says it’s safe to say that her method works.) “I write everything down; especially when it comes to lifting,” says Paige. “It’s the easiest way to see your progress and how far you’ve come.” We’re not all professional trainers, but we do all have access to FitBod, a workout app that creates custom strength-training workouts based on your ability and goals. Gone are the days where you avoid certain machines or stand clueless in front of a weight rack: The app takes the guesswork out of sets, reps and which weight to use, and even provides animated GIFs demonstrating each exercise.

Excuse #4: I need a personal trainer, but I can’t afford it

App: Fitplan

Price: 7-day free trial; $9.99/month

Fitplan

Whether you’re brand new to working out or you want to work towards a specific goal, having a pro by your side can be a huge help. Not only are professionals able to guide your form and enhance effectiveness of a workout, but they’re able to provide some much needed motivation, too. If you find yourself at a loss for where to start and don’t have access to a pro IRL, look to Fitplan, an app that provides users with thorough workout plans with world-class fitness trainers. The app offers 3-12 week workout plans organized by goal – like fat burn, building muscle, bikini body or postpartum for new moms. A trainer guides you through each plan, providing videos, routines and a place to record your weights, reps and personal bests. And for the same price as two lattes, it’s a whole lot more affordable than hiring an in-person trainer.

Excuse #5: I can’t stay motivated to stick to a routine

App: 30 Day Fitness App

Price: free

Wakeout

If you’re someone who jumps in with both feet and then falls off the bandwagon a week later, setting a concrete fitness goal you can work towards can help keep you motivated. The 30-Day Fitness App allows you to set a 30-day goal, whether it be a full-body tone up, or a specific target like your abs or glutes. You will ease into it the first couple of days and then the app will gradually increase your reps per set as you progress through the 30 days. Even the most unmotivated among us will find satisfaction in the check mark that appears on the calendar each day you complete your workout. With bathing suit season in full affect, a 30-day commitment may be just the push you need to get off the lounge chair and back in the gym.

Excuse #6: I press snooze so many times that I sleep through my workout

App: Wakeout

Price: free; $7.49/month for Wakeout Pro

Those who have mastered the morning workout make a pretty convincing case to give it a try. Not only does it ensure that a hectic schedule doesn’t get in the way of fitting in fitness, but it will get you up and moving before work, which can increase your productivity. But when that alarm sounds — and your bed is just oh-so-cozy — it becomes easier said than done. The Wakeout fitness app can help get the ball rolling and lessen the chance that you skip your workout. Featuring over 250 simple workouts — incorporating everything from pillows and your bed, to your desk chair and a coffee cup — the app allows you to make a small, 3-minute step towards becoming a morning person. (Bonus: It also provides exercises to perform at other sleepy times of the day, like at your desk during that midday slump at work.) Chances are, once you’re up and moving for a few minutes (even if it’s just tossing your pillow around in bed), you’ll be awake enough to get up for a longer workout.

Excuse #7: My mind isn’t in the right place to make exercise a priority

App: EveryBODY with Iskra

Price: 7-day free trial; $24.99/month

Physical fitness is just one cornerstone of a healthy lifestyle; it’ll only get you so far if you aren’t dedicating time to your mental health as well. And when you’ve gotten out of shape, the battle to get back in the gym can be as much mental as it is physical. If you’re stuck in a place where you’re constantly comparing yourself to others or worrying about being judged in the gym, EveryBODY with Iskra can help you work on rebuilding your confidence and focusing on self-care, instead of fixating on the extra pounds you’re trying to lose. Designed by self-care advocate, Iskra Lawrence, the app offers a combo of HIIT, boxing and yoga workouts, plus it’s chock-full of recipes, guided meditations, lifestyle tips and a constant support system to help you tackle each one of your wellness and self-care goals.

Excuse #8: My playlist doesn’t motivate me

App: FIT Radio

Price: Free; $3.99/month for Premium Subscription

FIT Radio

Let’s be real: sometimes the only thing pushing you through that run is the tunes blasting in your ears. Especially on those days when you feel less than motivated, the right playlist can make all the difference. Enter: FIT Radio. The app provides users with playlists curated by real-life DJs, with 40 different music genres, designed to fuel all your favorite workouts. Whether you’re climbing stairs, doing yoga, kickboxing or walking, FIT Radio will provide the tunes that will motivate you to push yourself to your limits. The app also has a running tab that syncs the playlist with your pace, helping you to stabilize or increase your speed if you’re training for a race.

Excuse #9: I want to run a race, but I’m too out of shape

App: C25K

Price: Free; upgrade to pro $4.99/month

It’s summer which means your social media feeds are peppered with friends posting their training runs for fall marathons and pictures of them holding 5k medals on the beach. Having some major FOMO? That’s where C25K comes into play. After just ten months, the founder of C25K went from a couch-ridden smoker to an inspirational athlete running his first marathon. The secret to the program is all in the gentle introduction to running that starts with alternating between walking and running small distances to help build strength before gradually transitioning into distance runs. Designed for people who are brand new to running, the app can get anyone up off the couch and running a 5k in just nine weeks — you’ll have your own Instagram-worthy moment to post in just a few short months!

Finally, there’s an app that builds a personalized workout program for you and gives you a place to log your progress.

Fitbod uses AI-learning to develop a workout plan for you that includes exercises, sets, and repetitions based on your abilities, goals, and available gym equipment.

Your workout program gets harder over time, as Fitbod’s algorithm learns from your past workouts that you log.

Plus, the app is ready to answer your questions about how to do certain exercises and what muscle groups are fresh with its’ built-in demonstrations and recovery sections.

We’ll go more in-depth about all that.

Here we go.

Getting Started

First, you can download Fitbod through the IOS app store. Sign up by filling out some basic information about yourself.

Now you’re going to start creating a workout program.

There’s a lot to select from, starting with how you want to create your workout. You can select individual muscle groups that you want to target, pick a few exercises you know you want to do and let the app fill in the rest, or you can create a workout from scratch.

There’s also a number of different workout styles, or splits, to choose from: push workouts, pull workouts, upper body only, or lower body only.

Next, you’re going to select what gym equipment you have available and almost everything you can think of is listed, from free weights to machines and everything in between.

If you’re traveling or don’t have access to a gym, Fitbod gives you the option to select bodyweight-only workouts that do not require any equipment.

Select your fitness goal: strength-training, bodybuilding, muscle tone, general fitness, powerlifting, or Olympic weightlifting (not available for beginners).

Then you’ll choose your level of strength-training experience: beginner, intermediate, or advanced.

You can select how much cardio you want included in your workouts, if you want a warm-up and cool down routine, how long you want the workouts to last, and a few other options.

Workouts

One of the things that stands out about Fitbod is the quality of the workouts. They’re carefully crafted for your goals and they cover a wide range of training styles to keep almost any gym rat happy.

Fitbod workout app: personalized approach to getting fit in 2020

The chart-topping fitness app Fitbod, using sophisticated machine learning and data analytics to automatically build personalized daily workout routines, has found its way onto the iPhones and Apple Watches of thousands of fans and the number is growing steadily. Fitbod is a new-generation fitness app that’s smart and easy to use, serving up daily workout routines designed specifically for each individual.

The app takes the guesswork out of exercising by recommending workouts geared to each person’s fitness goals, level of fitness and physical condition. Guided by best practices in strength training and fitness science, Fitbod is a fitness lover’s dream, making workouts efficient, fun and optimizing results for everyone from exercise novices to advanced athletes.

The good news is that for all its sophistication, Fitbod is an affordable tool for nearly everyone. After three complimentary trial workouts, users can subscribe to the app for only $9.99 per month or get an annual subscription for $59.99. As an incentive to make your New Year’s resolution come true, annual Fitbod memberships are 25% off, just 44.99 per year, through January 31, 2020.

Fitbod generates a new personalized workout routine every day, taking into account what equipment and time is available, the user’s workout preferences and limitations, and information logged in from previous workouts.

The app was launched for iOS on the App Store in 2015. It is a 2019 Apple Store Editor’s Choice pick and has a 4.8 rating based on nearly 64,000 reviews. A version for Android devices will be launched soon. The app currently works with Apple Health and other apps such as Activity, Fitbit and Strava, and more inter-app functionalities are anticipated. A free trial of the Fitbod app for iOS can be downloaded at https://fitbod.me.

Fitbod was created by co-founders Allen Chen and Jesse Venticinque to take advantage of breakthroughs in data analytics that make it possible to create fitness routines that are personalized while being based on best practices in strength training and fitness science.

Prior to co-founding Fitbod, Venticinque, with a background in human-computer interaction and cognitive sciences (Carnegie Mellon University and UCLA), led mobile product design efforts at LinkedIn and is a startup veteran of companies such as Slideshare, Altschool and Predictify.

“Consumer fitness tech today is like Google Maps without the directions feature. We have data-rich maps of people’s physical activity, but fail to help them navigate towards real results,” said Venticinque. “Fitbod bridges the gap, enabled by cutting edge personalization technology such as machine learning and predictive analytics. Resistance-training is the perfect type of exercise for this application. The activity naturally produces highly structured data (sets, reps, weight, equipment, etc.) and people vary widely in physical capability, making personalization critical to providing value.”

Allen Chen had a computer engineering background and worked in the financial industry as a high-frequency trading strategist. He used machine learning and data analytics to develop optimized trading and portfolio strategies for clients. “Through my lifelong passion for strength and sports training, I realized that the data analytics approach used to design and engineer investment strategies could be leveraged to create optimal fitness plans as well,” he said. “It may seem counter-intuitive that algorithms could guide such a human activity as strength training but actually the data helps to personalize and humanize the workout experience.”

Chen explained that according to fitness experts, daily routines need to vary from day to day in order to achieve best results. People’s lifestyles also dictate that exercise routines should be flexible. Depending on the day and circumstances, people may have a long or a short amount of time to work out. They may choose to go to the gym, work out at home, or may be on the road without access to their usual facilities and equipment. Fitbod takes all these factors into account and automatically designs an optimal workout routine for that day, based on what equipment and time period is available.”

All Fitbod’s suggested exercises are based upon best practices in strength training and fitness science. Fitbod has teamed with highly regarded fitness pros Chris Matsui, Nick Cerone, and Irene Gardner, who help architect the routines Fitbod recommends to achieve each users fitness goals, from muscle tone and bodybuilding to Olympic and Powerlifting. Routines can include such contemporary fitness approaches as supersets and circuit training. Fitbod users can master their daily routine by using available videos and text to learn about each exercise and view the proper way to perform it.

One of Fitbod’s strongest features is its ability to design workout routines that minimize the risk of injury. Fitbod tracks the user’s workout history and determines the muscle recovery state—which muscle groups need complete rest, or less intense exercise, so they won’t be overstrained. Over time, the daily workout routines become more individualized and challenging, pushing users to stretch their limits and reach their goals.

Personal trainers have found value in using Fitbod to assist them in their work with clients. “Fitbod is like having a technical assistant to assist me as I work with my clients,” said personal fitness trainer Nick Cerone. “Fitbod does the heavy lifting when it comes to designing the daily routine, calculating calories burned, determining muscle recovery states and tracking progress. This frees me up to concentrate on motivating and encouraging my clients while I use my training expertise to make sure they use proper form. Fitbod is a win-win for everyone.”

Currently, Fitbod integrates with other fitness or health apps including Apple Health, Fitbit and Strava. Going forward, the company plans to offer routines or add-ons that are targeted to special needs groups or are designed to optimize performance in specific sports or physical activities.

Personalizing workout routines

The personalization process starts when new users create a profile by entering individual fitness information, including their height, weight, gender and age, their fitness experience, physical limitations, available equipment and their fitness goals. Fitness activities can be targeted toward general fitness, strength training, muscle tone, bodybuilding, powerlifting and even Olympic weightlifting. Height, weight, age, available equipment and available workout time can be modified as often as needed so that the recommended workout fits into the user’s day. Fitbod can also pull in physical data from Apple Health—another iOS app—to keep the user’s workout history up to date. Finally, the app analyzes data from previous workouts to determine the muscle recovery state—which muscle groups need to recuperate and shouldn’t be exercised until another day.

Having considered these factors, Fitbod automatically creates a list of recommended exercises for the day, including the weights to be used and the number of required reps and sets. Users who are unfamiliar with an exercise can access instructional videos and text through the app. Each exercise is described, instructions are offered, and Fitbod tells them which muscle groups are involved. Exercise modifications are suggested for people with physical limitations.

The workout routines can incorporate more than sixty types of equipment including free weights, bars and benches, cable machines, weight machines and other equipment including resistance bands. The app will also recommend warm-up and cool-down exercises and cardio routines to augment the strength-focused exercises.

To help keep subscribers motivated, Fitbod subscribers get a Weekly Workout Report which includes such stats as Total Weight Lifted, Number of Logged Workouts, Total Workout Duration, Total Calories Burned and Exercises Performed. Personal Bests and workout streaks are also recorded as Fitbod Achievements.

Integrations with other health and fitness apps

Complementarity is at the core of Fitbod’s business model and integration with other fitness apps is a key functionality. Currently, to build users’ profiles, Fitbod can read and write data to Apple Health (weight, height, gender and age). Many of the Apple Health and Apple Watch workout routines—such as Indoor Run, Elliptical, Rower and Indoor Cycle—can be imported into Fitbod. The Activity app can pull in this data from the Apple Health app and use it to calculate calories burned during the workout.

Integration with Fitbit is also available, so Fitbit users can connect to their Fitbit account. Workout data from Fitbod can be posted to Fitbit.

For extra motivation, Fitbod users can connect their Fitbod account to Strava, a social network for athletes. Strava users can also post their Strava cardio fitness routines—Runs, Bike Rides and E-Bike Rides—since these affect the muscle recovery state and can be considered when Fitbod designs their daily routine.

Partnerships with other businesses

Fitbod has developed partnerships with several companies who see the value in encouraging people to stay fit by using the Fitbod app. Fitness clubs such as Raise the Bar Fitness in San Francisco and hotel organizations such as the Godfrey Hotel in Chicago have partnered with Fitbod to cross-promote the app. At Raise the Bar Fitness, in-house personal trainers are using the app to enhance their work with clients. The Godfrey Hotel offers complimentary Fitbod sessions as a special amenity. The workout routines are geared to the equipment in the hotel’s fitness center.

Fitbod, Inc. is the developer of the Fitbod app, a technology platform that designs deeply personalized workout plans, allowing users to get maximum benefit from their fitness program. Using machine learning, data analytics, user data and exercise science best practices, the app creates optimized and personalized workout routines.

Top 5 Mobile Video Apps for Strength and Conditioning Coaches

Video apps have come a long way in the past few years for strength coaches and are popular for teaching high level movement such as Olympic lifting.

Video apps are so advanced these days that strength coaches use them to train individual athletes remotely or in a team setting. Imagine recording each athlete and quickly running it back for a side-by-side comparison in the weight room. Better yet, think about athletes filming themselves in the offseason and sending the strength coach the video for interaction and feedback – especially incoming freshmen.

With today’s technology, this is not only possible, it’s pretty easy. Here are the best five video apps for strength coaches:

5. Keelo Lift

This new app is sharp, fast and extremely simple to use. In fact, they are a potential threat to the other barbell technique apps we list in this article if they grow in popularity. Keelo Lift automatically tracks the barbell path and uses a heat-map type graphing to indicate barbell speed which is super sharp. Video is recorded in 60 FPS and stored for easy playback within the app and can also be shared.

Keelo’s free version offers 20 free lift recordings and gives the option to purchase unlimited recordings for a monthly or annual fee. Unfortunately, Keelo Lift is only available in iOS at the moment but will be making an Android app.

4. TeamBuildr

It’s true – the programming software has delved into the video game (we couldn’t help ourselves). In a different twist, TeamBuildr created a video feature that lets athletes record themselves on their own phones, upload to TeamBuildr and coaches can comment/give coaching feedback on the technique from the coach account.

The idea is to have coaching take place in the same software where programming is done, essentially consolidating more strength coaching functions into one platform.

3. Dartfish

Our third-ranked app is Dartfish which offers itself as a very efficient tool for strength coaches. Dartfish offers a robust editing interface that allows for a lot of markup in addition to playing back video in slow motion. Priced at $6.99, coaches will be going for free apps before trying Dartfish but this company is reputable among the sports community and makes a strong effort to be valuable to strength and conditioning coaches. Available for iOS and Android, give a Dartfish a try when looking to upgrade to a more sophisticated video app.

2. Hudl Technique (Ubersense)

Ubersense is now Hudl Technique (acquired by Hudl). This app is tremendously popular and used by many Olympic coaches. It films in HD, plays back ultra-slow motion, and lets you diagram/markup directly on the video with the easy-of-use that Hudl is known for.

Perhaps the coolest feature is how you can compare athlete videos side-by-side with professional athletes in the same sport. For a strength coach, this app is just a smooth tool that is backed by one of the most trusted companies in sports technology. Available on iOS and Android.

1. Coach’s Eye

At $4.99, Coach’s Eye is available on any iOS, Android, and Windows device and is our first pick for best mobile video app for strength coaches. This app is able to charge a premium because of the sheer functionality it offers: A coach can actually record their voice as they breakdown and markup an HD, ultra slow motion playback for an athlete.

In addition to frame-by-frame playback, voice-over video and markup, this app even lets strength coaches compare side-by-side videos of two different athletes (or the same athlete).

Do you find that most fitness apps are a little too casual for your workout goals? Check out these serious downloads with a focus on realizing gains and putting on more muscle the right way. Here are the best weightlifting apps around for iOS and Android devices.

Note: Most of these apps are updated to work with smartwatches too, but their capacity is limited and unless you are primarily interested in logging results, you tend to get better content on your phone.

Strong (free)

Simple and straightforward, Strong is a great choice if you have set routines you’re working through. Strong has a vast database of exercises to choose from, including the best arm workouts, and you can add each of those exercises into a number of workouts. Plan your workouts, then get one going and knock down your goals. Its strength is a weakness in some ways, and anyone who doesn’t have a set workout planned will find the app unable to keep up with their spontaneous needs. However, with a powerful suite of tools, if Strong works for you then it’s the app you need. Paying $5 per month or $30 per year will unlock an unlimited number of custom routines and other Pro features.

iOS Android

Fitness Point (free)

When it comes to a hardcore, down-to-details workout apps, few are as complete as Fitness Point. It’s primarily a collection of workout instructions that go exercise by exercise, breaking each down into images, descriptions, and the muscle group affected. You can build your own workout based on the muscle groups you want to target, and log each exercise that you do with notes for weight changes, calories burned, and so on. Common workouts include animations to help you keep your form, although full video training is a little lacking — this app is primarily for experienced gym rats who want a good app to build their own regimens. The biggest downside is that the selection of workouts is limited to basic options and some of them require resistance bands. There are still quite a few, but for very specific exercises or for rarer moves, you may need to purchase more workouts, so some cost may be involved. There’s also a Pro version with no ads for $5.

iOS Android

Fitted Lifts ($3)

Fitted Lifts is an iOS fitness app designed to track your performance over time by making it easy to log your sets and reps while you do them. The layout is based on simple sliders that let you update your record while you work out. You can customize workouts and see what specific exercises you are doing (and how long it’s been since you did that move). You can also view charts to track your weight and performance over time. It’s a great app for dedicated muscle builders who know exactly what they want to track and don’t mind using an app for a bit during their workouts.

iOS

Simple Workout Log (free)

More time doing lifty-weighty and less time poking your phone is always great, and that’s where Simple Workout Log comes in. It works exactly as you’d expect: Enter your exercise, weight, and number of reps, and the app will keep track of that information, allowing you to see how you’ve progressed over time. You can rename and export your routines, and there’s a website version of the app available, so you can keep track even if you forget your phone. There’s no iOS version yet, but it’s in the works.

Android

Jefit (free)

Jefit is similar to Fitness Points, but with a greater focus on photos and real images, which is excellent if you aren’t sure how to do some of the exercises and would like a more in-depth look at the moves. In addition to the exercise library, there’s also a full workout tracker, timer, and shortcut workout routines for those who don’t want to customize. Jefit also dives heavily into analytics and social media, with a workout profile that allows you to look at your progress, share workouts with others, view your progress picture, and more. It can get a little data intensive, but maybe you’re into that — in which case, you should also check out these fitness trackers.

iOS Android

Stronglifts 5×5 (free)

If the complexity of apps like Jefit does nothing for you, this Stronglifts app, called 5×5, should be much more your style. It’s a personal trainer and logger, but one that’s pared down, with a minimalist interface focused on 5×5 workouts. Plug in your starting weights and sets, and the app will tell you how long to rest between sets, and what weights and sets you should use next time. There’s a lot less thinking and profile management, and a lot more weightlifting, so what’s not to like? There’s a Pro option with more features, and it costs $20 a year.

iOS Android

Beginner Workout — Your First Month at the Gym (free)

Looking to get into lifting weights for the first time? Maybe you’re returning to the world of pumping iron after an extended break? Either way, Beginner Workout might be your pathway into lifting. The app challenges you to follow a four-week training course that has been specially designed to be demanding, but not so demanding as to cause burnout or injury. It’s completely free, and it promises to give you a great start to lifting weights (and a good buildup of muscle too). Unfortunately, it’s only available on Android.

Android

Workout Trainer: fitness coach (free)

Skimble’s app is more suited toward fitness newcomers who want to build muscle and get into shape, but need some guidance on how. You can choose categories like weightlifting or bodyweight, explore different workout routines that are premade for you, and pick the one that you want to try (they are rated by time, intensity, body part, and so on). The workouts are created by verified trainers, and there’s an option to link up with an online trainer and explore your fitness progress together — if you’re willing to pay a subscription fee.
