Whether a seasoned gym-bunny or a frightened first-timer, iFitness helps you track your workouts
by on March 17, 2010
The iFitness app is one of the best keep-fit applications for the iPhone, offering a comprehensive and tailored exercise guide and log to ensure you meet your fitness goals. It basically turns your iPhone into a fantastic (and rather cheap) personal trainer.
Some new gym-goers are quite intimidated by the look of the many machines they are faced by when they first head into their local gym, but iFitness helps to overcome this fear of the unknown by giving you simple graphical instructions for over 150 exercises,
iFitness breaks down exercises into three list views: by muscle group (abdominals, arms, back); by muscle (the app lets you tap a body part, and the name of the muscle comes up; a second tap lists the exercises for that muscle); and alphabetical by exercise name (from “ab crunch on a ball,” through to “Zercher squat”).
The graphical images which describe each exercise are generally good enough to teach you what you need to do, but if you are still slightly confused, then there is a text description of the exercise that tells you in detail how to achieve your goal for a particular technique.
You can then keep alog of your workouts viewable by date or by exercise, which is essential in keeping a track of your longer-term progress.
