What is strength? Strength is grit. Resilience. Persistence in the face of adversity. Strength is something we all need a little bit more of in our lives. But unfortunately, as women, strength is something we are often discouraged from developing.

That is why we built Spitfire Athlete.

We built Spitfire Athlete because most fitness products “for women” are all about how you look and not about what you can do.

Spitfire used to describe a woman with a fiery temper (and a fighter aircraft). Today, the word spitfire embodies the strength, intelligence, and ambition of the modern day woman. We are intelligent, dauntless, driven. We are spitfires.

We have helped women lift more than their bodyweight, learn how to do their first pull-up, train for their first triathlon, compete in their first powerlifting competition, train to overcome anorexia, and fight through cancer.

The app features finely crafted structured training plans designed to help you intelligently train towards your goals.

UPPER BODY STRENGTH: We get asked for an upper body only training plan a lot. One of the best exercises for developing upper body strength is actually the pull-up. It’s a functional, compound exercise that builds full upper body strength and a back and arms to be proud of.

- The Pull-Up: How to Do Your First Pull-Up

“Spitfire is the first plan that tells me everything I need to know and how to do it.”

“It feels so good to know what I'm doing and what is best for my workout goals.”

“Fantastic for keeping a consistent strength training schedule.”

Great but nothing new in a long time

I have been doing the free workouts for awhile and just upgraded to the pull-up plan, but I'm a little curious as to why the group behind the app haven't updated its content or any of their social media in a long, long time. It was such a joy to find this app and it would be sad to see it abandoned.

Great app, great community!

Finally a workout app for women that's about building strength, not sex appeal. Spitfire offers structured workout plans at multiple levels of skill and training frequency. There are women demonstrating each exercise within the app, and those women are real athletes, not fitness models. You can record the weight used, and easily go back and review past workouts to see if you're increasing your weights.
I've completed 3 workout plans: the Fighter, the Heroine, and the Climber. Whereas the fighter is a more traditional weights session, the Heroine is a short body weight only circuit that I used to complement running. Most advanced was the Climber, which had pull up variations for days, and where I saw my most rewarding strength gains!!! All 3 programs were high quality.
If I had a suggestion for improvement, it's to list the approximate amount of time the workouts take in the program description. Some take longer than my available time: one hour. Although sometimes I could just shrink one or two sets, other times I just switched to a shorter duration program the next gym session.

Thank you Cj4321xyz! Adding the approximate time per workouts is a great suggestion, we will get on that :)

I've never looked better! Great app!!

I love this app and use it exclusively for my workouts. My body has completely transformed and I'm way more toned and firm than I've ever been. And super strong. My husband has asked me if I could teach him what I've been doing because he wants to get the same great results. The price seems scary but all the plans are super detailed and allow you to keep track of your progress in the app. Their customer service is great and the creators of the programs are always eager to connect and answer any questions you have! I recommend this app to everyone I know.
