Best App for Personal Training
Abs, Arms, Or All Over: What are you focusing on today? iFitness organizes its exercise categories by body region, plus stretching and cardio for aerobic exercises like running, cycling, step machine, and others. Tap a category to pull up a list of targeted exercises.
A Muscular Menu: Each category includes a big list of exercises. Browse the collection to add variety to a stale workout routine or to target muscle groups you've treated with benign neglect. Scan the list for inspiration, or tap an exercise for photos and complete instructions.
Do It Right: Be careful with those weights; doing exercises properly will get you the best results and avoid injury. iFitness helps you do just that by illustrating every exercise with one or two simple, uncluttered photos. Double-tap the screen to flip to clearly worded instructions of how (and why) to do each exercise. You can add your own exercises—complete with photos—to the collection from the main Exercises screen.
Routines: With more than 200 exercises, iFitness gives you a tasty smorgasbord of options, but possibly more than you can swallow at first. If you're not sure where to start, the Routines screen offers ten workout recipes targeting different goals or profiles. The beginner session, for example, eases you into the basics with fundamental exercises for machines and dumbbells. Assemble your own custom routines in the My Workouts screen.
Muscle Groups: If you want to tone a specific muscle group, the app lets you zero in on a more focused collection of exercises. Tap the app's diagram of a flayed and pinned man (ouch!) to identify the muscles to work, and then continue to the list of matching exercises.
