The Gain Fitness iPhone app is like having your own personal trainer without the expense. The app is free, however there are additional training packs that can be purchased. The free program
installed has plenty of variety and will definitely get you fit. The individual packs are $2.99-$3.99. You can get a complete program for $9.99-$29.99. The Road Warrior, Butterfly Yoga, and Basketball Pro (coming soon) packs can get a bit expensive.
The trainer sounds like a real person. None of that autotune mess. The trainer gives
encouragement during the warm-up and cool down. I love the motivation, but wish there was some incorporated during the actual workout. That's where I need to hear "Nice Job" or "You Can Do It" most. The exercise demonstrations are easy to understand overall. There were a few where I needed to see a back view.
You can design your ideal workout for home, on the go, or at the gym. Everything is there. If you want to squeeze in a quick workout, then you can do the abbreviated version. I've been doing the home workouts for the last 2 weeks. The home option allows you to enter the equipment available from dumbells to stability balls. Set the time and days you want to workout and reminder
push notifications will be sent to you. It also tracks your progress and allows you to share a workout on Facebook and Twitter.
Currently, the GAIN Fitness app is only available on iPhone. The website says that
versions for iPad and other devices are coming soon.
Overall, I give the GAIN Fitness app 4 hearts. It's easy to use, mobile, encouraging, and FREE!
