It almost feels like having a personal trainer in your pocket.In addition, the app's deload recommendations tell you when to reduce the intensity for a while and enjoy some active recovery.The paid version also comes with a training plan generator.

Fitbod is an excellent app, especially for frequent travelers who often train at hotel gyms and outside.What sets Fitbod apart from most other apps is that it builds workouts from scratch based on data you provide (available equipment, preferred workout length, etc.). Share your goals, experience level, preferred training frequency, and other similar details with the app, and watch as it builds a fantastic training plan in seconds.The app is great for traveling because it allows you to hold multiple gym profiles. These will enable you to quickly switch between settings based on your needs. For example, you can have one gym profile for traveling and another for when you're at home.Going on vacation? Use your gym profile where you prefer shorter workouts with little to no equipment. Staying at home? Switch to your original profile, where you train more frequently (and for longer), and have access to all sorts of gym equipment.
