The Best Apps To Help You With Your Gym Routine

Post Type

There’s an app for everything here in 2017, and if you consider yourself a fitness freak and hit the gym regularly, there’s no reason to leave your phone in your locker.


Unless, of course, your gym is underground with little phone signal. Even then, if you’re on a good network like Asda Mobile you might be in luck. So, next time you’re in the gym, make sure you download these fantastic fitness-focused apps.

1. Pumping Weight

Pumping Weight is an app used by personal trainers around the world to help deliver great pure strength workouts. Track your workout, learn new exercises and use the impressive calendar function to help you schedule in your specific workouts throughout the week.  With a clean user interface, straightforward ease of use and even a useful suggestion tool, we’d recommend this app for anyone looking to pump iron.

2. Bodyweight Training: You Are Your Own Gym

This app allows you to get into a great shape without even stepping into a gym.  With plenty of fantastic bodyweight training exercises that you can do at home, at the office and outdoors, this is the perfect app for getting you up and exercising wherever you are. There are no excuses anymore!


Of course, while the app was designed for outside the gym, you can certainly still take advantage of its fantastic body workouts in the studio area of your gym.

3. All-in Fitness

All-in Fitness is the best all-rounder on the market. Over 7 million people use its 1,200 exercises and workouts to get fit and stay healthy at the gym. With a calorie counter and a BMI calculator included, this is a great app for those who are looking for the full fitness package, but perhaps can’t afford a costly personal trainer.

4. GymGoal Pro

This is another great all-round workout app, except that GymGoal Pro focuses on providing a thorough workout plan for each of your muscle groups. All you need to do is pick which muscle group you want to work out on the day of your routine, be it the biceps, the neck or the trap etc., and the app will present the best exercises for working them out. Follow the routine, see what works and get fit.


A final benefit: the pro version of the app is continuously being updated and in the latest update, stretching workouts were added.

  1. GymGoal Pro is a pretty good app. I haven’t heard of the others so thanks for highlighting them to me!

  2. My favourite apps have always been Netflix and Spotify! Strangely I’ve never even considered using an actual fitness app, off to download all of the apps right now! Thanks for the idea!
