Fitness is a multi-billion dollar industry. While there is an absorbent amount of “As Seen On TV” health and exercise widgets and gadgets, one look on the app store and one would notice that the fitness industry has taken over there as well. Not all good though. Finding an iPhone exercise app such as GAIN Fitness where workouts can be customized to the individual was quite refreshing.
The app features workouts based on certified trainers’ expertise and exercise science principles without the hassles of actually having to find a personal trainer. However, it’s always good to consult one from time to time. Beyond this, the app features over 700 exercises from strength and plyometric to calisthenic and yoga. Within these categories are thousands of combinations of workouts to suit just about everyone’s needs.
Upon launching the app there is a choice to sign in via Facebook or setup a new account. I chose to use Facebook and the signup was almost instantaneous after allowing the app to access my social account. From there, the app is no nonsense and jumps straight into customizing a workout. And it’s easy to do just that.
