FitBod: A Highly Satisfying Fitness App with Customizable Workouts

30 reviews between Aug 24, 2023 and Sep 12, 2023.

FitBod is a highly satisfying app that offers customizable workouts tailored to individual needs and fitness levels. It provides a great exercise library, circuit grouping, and suggests workouts based on recovered muscles. However, there are some frustrating limitations such as the inability to search customized workouts and lack of information on previous weights used. The app helps users avoid burning out and offers a variety of exercises including weights, calisthenics, cardio, and functional movements.

  • Great help

    I’ve always had issues staying consistent and on an actual plan instead of just doing random workouts. This app solved all this making it super easy doing all the planning for me, it helps me stay consistent and even allows me to substitute other exercises if a machine is broken or I can’t do one for one reason or another. The best part is it recommends other exercises that target the same muscles so you don’t have to search for one. Great app so far!

  • When? -

    When will you add a few of these features for Apple Watch?

    1. The ability to view Heart rate on the app!!!

    2. The app in general, needs to be able to read and sync ALL Apple health workouts, not just cardio. You can see true workout history if only one type of exercise is recorded outside of the app.

    3. The syncing needs to be more reliable. I did a whole workout on Fitbod, it didn’t count towards my Apple stats or rings at all. I had to resume workout then end it for the workout to be synced, but the move ring didn’t move nor the caloric expenditure didn’t move.

    4. More exercises and equipment can be added!

    5. Need more variety of exercises instead of 7 rounds of about 5 exercises to make an hour+ workout.

    Best fitness app… the Elite level is worth it for anyone trying to lose weight, gain strength or has any other various goals. The more you use it the better it’s streamlined for your needs. Excellent. I love the how to videos and the alternate option button.

    • Deceptive Discription

      This is my favorite workout app I have used. It uses good exercises and the user interface is great. I get really annoyed though when they describe it as being a free app with elite features given to paying subscribers. In reality you get 3 free workouts and then you have to pay to keep using any of the features of the app. To me it is no where near worth the hefty fee and I do not like to support shady companies if I can avoid it.

    • Good but frustrating

      The Good: can customize workouts, has a great exercise library with video demonstration. Can create your own workouts, can group exercises into a circuit, also suggests workouts based on recovered muscles, provides good data to see how you have been tracking over a period of time. The frustrating: your customized workouts are not searchable, when performing an exercise the app does not tell you what you did last time or provide any wick info on recent weights used, cannot group saved workouts into a folder which would be so nice if you do different programs, it would also be nice for it to suggest exercises based on frequency of movements that you usually do for a particular body part, also since now I have many saved workouts, when I go into the list, when I go to look at a workout to see if I want to do it, if I want to look at another saved workout, there is no back button to take you back to the list…you have to exit out completely and go back into the whole list again…super frustrating! Hopefully these are easy fixes that some I have requested 4 years ago when I first purchased. Hopefully a public review will motivate them to actually follow through with these frustrating features.

    • A coach without an annoying personality

      I have very little experience working with weights, but having just turned 60, I’ve become aware that keeping and possibly building muscle should be my #1 mission when it comes to exercise.

      I confess, I struggle to take direction from holier-than-thou coaches and I’m not fond of the pushing and coaxing during workouts. I’m actually very good at motivating myself and pacing myself to ensure a good workout, but to also avoid injury.

      I don’t have the knowledge to build weight workouts to cover various muscle groups, much less track how well recovered muscle groups are after a workout.

      FitBod is superb at this. Granted, it took me a couple weeks and some delving through the app to figure stuff out, but once I did, I started to literally fall in love with weight training.

      Additionally, I’m an avid road cyclist. FitBod connects to Strava and accounts for my rides, tracking the muscle groups users and their recovery level. FitBod complements my cycling so well. I’m finding that my overall endurance and comfort on long rides has increased.

      Kudos to FitBod as a coach. Annoying personality not included. Thankfully.

    • Too many glitches

      This app has too many glitches. For starters, it doesn’t allow me to add exercises to a superset after the workout has already been logged. The option is there however, it does nothing.
      Also changes my logged workouts randomly and when I try to correct, it reverts back to the incorrect logs. And it removed supersets that I now cannot re-add.

      App has had a lot of glitches lately. Workout streak counter fluctuates from being correct and incorrect frequently. I track on 3 apps, and Fitbod clearly has a bug.

    • A great value!!

      For the price of 2 average training sessions, you get a whole year of workouts. I’ve had great results with this and the videos are a great assist to help with form. I’ve had this app now for easily 3 years now. And the improvements have been good too

    • Good

      I really like this app. It’s easy to use and I love that it will work with whatever equipment you have access to. There are some bugs, like bow and then it won’t let me input a double digit of reps. The only major flaw, in my view, is that it doesn’t let you log most recreational exercise through the “log past workout” feature. For example, I rollerbladed for two hours yesterday at a party and there is no way to log that. If I do a sporadic Zumba class or go dancing, there’s no option for that either. I am hoping to see more options added.

    • Friction, but not the kind you want from a workout

      - hidden buttons on workout rows (row looks like two buttons but is actually three)
      - this makes it hard to find how to log exercises if you accidentally tap the exercise picture, which does a completely different thing than the exercise name (why?)
      - exercise detail view (the one you will accidentally go to if you don’t get lucky and click the name of the exercise) has no link across to the logging screen, so you may never be able to locate that except by chance since there’s no indication a row is actually two buttons
      - you might discover “log workout” in the menu by clicking the right side button on the exercise row and think this can get you to the logging view… but this logs that you completed all sets for that exercise instead, even if it’s part of a circuit (which doesn’t make any sense)
      - timer for timed exercises doesn’t come up automatically when you come into one and is behind a non-standard icon (clock hands with a circular arrow around them? What does it mean?)
      - No watch support
      - which is especially bad since you have to tap dozens of times just to get through a single workout. Tap to log. Tap for timer. Tap to start timer. Tap to start timer again for next set. We’re exerting ourselves, so streamline the UI as much as possible!

      I try these apps in hopes of reducing the friction I have to endure when I work out of finding what to do, searching for a good YouTube video, finding another one the next night and the next night. These are the frictions that can kill a habit in no time. This app plans the workout for you… but then forces you to pull teeth in the UI to get through it. Just not a solution for me.

    • Consistently Great

      I’ve been using this app for years and it is consistently keeping things fresh, new and high quality. Customization options are great, so the workouts they build you are still within the guidelines you set. The new ability to track your strength over time and the Max Effort feature keep pushing you to get better and push yourself. Love this app so much and it’s great to see new exercises consistently added.

    • Why would you not use this

      There are people who know more than me, there are people who know less than me. Fitness has been a part of my life as a Marine, a high school athlete, and as a lifestyle. This app IS THE EDGE for me. I don’t “need” an app to tell me what to do or how to do it, or track my workouts and make scientific recommendations on what to increase, I don’t “need” an app to tell me what muscles are tired and what ones should be worked next, I don’t “need” a library of alternative exercises I can seamlessly swap in or out of a routine anytime… but I love it. Some days you feel like clanging and some days you don’t, I love opening the app and seeing what my routine for the day will look like and knowing this is a great routine to help me hit my goals, based off of the goals I have entered. I have tried new things and done new combos that I now routinely do, I have seen this app go from good to great. I can’t say enough, this app has made my life better, period.

      There’s a ton of stuff missing.
      Boxing
      Functional movement/calisthenics
      Other very common stuff.

      All of these apps are def designed by people that never stepped foot in a gym but have about them online. 🤷🏻‍♂️ It feels like I spend as much time training it as I do training in the gym.
