My favorite fitness app to use when I workout is the Jefit app. I happened to find it in the iPhone app store, and it is also available for Android in case you want to download it too.
When I started working out not too long ago, I felt so lost in the gym. I felt like a complete loser following my boyfriend around and waiting for him to give me instructions for the next exercise that was up. This especially sucked because I really like circuit training; I burn more calories that way. The long breaks in between my workouts were frustrating me because I felt like I wasn’t burning fat and looking lost, and my boyfriend since I would be complaining the whole time.
I searched and search through websites and the app store and I really must say that this fitness app is perfect! Here are all the reason I love it, and why I think you should download it too.
Why you should download my favorite fitness app!
- You can create a profile and log your body stats, as well as your goals.
- You can keep track of your training stats with the workout log.
- You can upload progress photos.
- You can create routines for different days of the week – complete with reps, sets, time, rest timer, etc.
- If you don’t know what exercise to choose, you can look at go to the “Exercises” section of the app, and select the part of the body you’d like to work. Then it will return a list of exercises that you can add to your routine.
- You can search for exercises by equipment.
- There are over 1300 exercises in the Jefit database to choose from (with or without equipment).
- If the exercise you are looking for isn’t available, you can add a custom workout.
- Each exercise gives you a demonstration (unless it’s a custom exercise that you added)
- I also like that you can access Jefit from a desktop. I prefer building my workouts on a computer or my iPad since the screen is bigger.
- Jefit follows back on Twitter and responds to your tweets 🙂
After getting the Jefit fitness app, I feel like I have more control and appear to know what I am doing in the gym, or even at home. I simply build my routine the night before (or sometimes the day of) and just go to work when I am ready. You can also preset your rest time between exercises and how many reps and sets you will do. I just put my phone in my armband upside down so I can log my sets during my rest period.
I’ve tried plenty of fitness apps, but if you are a beginner and need some guidance I recommend this one. Check it out when you get a chance and let me know what you think!
