My fave fitness app

About a week ago a friend of mine mentioned having a gym membership but needing some help with what routines to do. The cost of a personal trainer was prohibitive. Immediately my favorite fitness app, Fitocracy came to mind and a post I reblogged last year. The portion of the post can be found below along with the link to the full post. The individual exercises that you can pick are mentioned. However what wasn’t mentioned in the post (possibly because this feature was added later) is that Fitocracy has routines that you can pick from based on your goals. This is what makes this app tops in my opinion.

FITOCRACY

Fitocracy is a great way to stay motivated and meet like minded people who actually want to help.

I’ve been using this website for a while now and it acts as my main source of motivation. At the base of Fitocracy is a system of tracking your workouts (through their free web application, or the iOS and Android apps), getting points for each of your exercises, and then leveling up when you reach a certain amount of points. This is actually a surprisingly great way to stay motivated as you aim to keep advancing yourself each time you exercise, you end up getting addicted to earning leveling up meaning you have another reason to get out there and keep going.

They have a large database of exercises which you can choose from making it quick, easy and satisfying to track your workouts

The motivation gained just by being able to level up just by exercising is enough of a reason for you to start using Fitocracy, but another great reason is the awesome  and helpful community. Have a question? Need to get someone to check on your technique? Someone in the Fitocracy community will be willing to help you get things right, and they’re great at motivating you too.
