App Review – Workout Trainer
Wouldn’t it be nice if you had a personal trainer to whip you into shape for the holidays? You’re probably thinking, “Who has the time or money for that?” Don’t fret! I’ve found an app that will give you the assistance of a personal trainer without the crazy cost or the hassle usually associated with these people kicking your behind.
Workout Trainer, by Skimble, is equipped with audio recordings from expert coaches to push you through all of your exercises. There are also photo and video guides to give you a better idea of what you’re supposed to be doing. The app is designed for people who are looking to get fit without the equipment, so you can try weightlifting at the gym, or do some ab workouts in front of your television at home. Now that’s my kind of workout! I don’t always have time to go to the gym, so I find Workout Trainer to be very accommodating. It has a ton of exercises to try out, and you can select workouts depending a specific area of focus, whether that be to cut back on your one-mile run time, lose weight, or whatever else means “success” to you.
- Workout Trainer will select workout programs for you depending on your specific fitness goals, which include: lose weight, strengthen core, build muscle, tone muscle, build endurance, and improve flexibility. And yes, you can select however many apply to you. Each routine has a set time-frame and number of workouts. It also tells you level of difficulty, and which of your fitness goals are targeted.
- Workout Trainer also considers how much time you have to exercise, and how intense you like your workouts.
- If you aren’t looking for a set program, you can pick individual exercises to try, which are categorized by fitness goals, type of workout, or target body part.
- The audio recordings really push you to keep going, but they also include words of encouragement, which is always appreciated.
- There are forums where you can discuss your routines, get tips, find workout buddies, and otherwise collaborate with other users.
- Workout Trainer is compatible with both iPhones and Androids.
Overall, the Workout Trainer is quite efficient, and seems to be a user favourite. However, some of it’s faults are that it doesn’t allow you to revisit workouts in your program that you may have missed, and the routines can take some time to load. As well, the price is a little deceiving. The app is free to download, but you do have to pay for your programs.
