All aspects of working out should be fun, not just the workout itself. Personal Best makes sure the fun – and the tracking – doesn't stop when your run, walk, or other workout does.
Personal Best is the one and only workout companion you need, whether you prefer to track your exercise on your iPhone or Apple Watch. Working out is about the numbers as much as the sweat and Personal Best has a ton of them, all presented in a gorgeous way.
At its core, Personal Best is a great way to see all of the workout data your iPhone and Apple Watch collect when you work out. Distance traveled, heart rate, and more are all tracked and Personal Best presents it in a way that not only looks great but offers insights, too. You'll receive feedback on your workouts immediately and see leaderboards showing how your last workout stacks up against your best. Nothing's more motivational than beating your own high score!
Personal Best's wealth of information includes aggregated data as well, so you can see how many workouts you've done over the last week, month, quarter, and year. Metrics include how many calories you've burned, the distance you've traveled, and more. Ever wondered which days you're most active on? Personal Best can tell you!
Because all of your health data is private, it lives on your device and never, ever leaves it. Personal Best ties into the Health and Fitness apps on your iPhone and uses their data to create its graphs, leaderboards, and stickers. Your data is yours and that's the way it should be.
Personal Best includes:
- Native iPhone widgets to display information about your workouts, the last 30 days of exercise, and more.
- Sharable stickers with as much, or as little information about your workout as you like – perfect for sharing on the 'gram!
- Privacy as a feature, not an afterthought. We don't collect your data.
- An inexpensive feature unlock. Upgrade when you're ready and make the most of your workouts and the information they generate.
- Support for Peloton, Strava, and any other app that populates the Health app with workout information using Apple HealthKit.
- Extensive integration with Shortcuts and Siri.
This version fixes a bug where widgets would sometimes not appear on iOS 16, and a bug which would occasionally crash the Apple Watch app.
Ratings and Reviews
Clear, focused and private
If you’re looking for an app that gives you valuable insight into your workouts and subtly motivates you to improve your performance then Personal Best is pretty much perfect. I particularly like the Home Screen widget, where I can easily see how well I did on my last run.
It’s more detailed and customisable than the stock Fitness app, but not so low level and incomprehensible as the raw workout data in the stock Health app. It sits in between those perfectly without trying to be an annoying full blown personal trainer.
In addition to the great, clear, insightful design, its refreshing to see a developer understand where their app fits and what it is and isn’t.
It doesn’t overreach by asking for a subscription (it’s a very reasonably priced one off purchase), nor does it want me to sign up for some dumb account and put my data on a server somewhere to be sold or stolen (it just uses Apple Health data already on the device).
Thank you for respecting your appreciative customers and making such a great tool :)

That’s really nice of you to say, thanks so much!
Just a simply fantastic workout companion
I use so many different apps and websites for tracking activity data but I have to say that this is one of my favourite apps.
The design is lovely, the data and how it is presented is brilliant and I love having the large widget on mg home screen to see my latest workouts at a glance.
Every update brings about so great changes and improvements and overall the pro version is well worth it in my eyes.

Thank you for the kind feedback, that’s really nice of you to say! More cool features are on the way soon too.
Excellent 5️⃣ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ App.
Personal Best Workouts is an excellent well throughout app. It visually present the data from the Apple’s Health app in a much more user friendly manner. The UI is top notch. The developer Shaun keeps pushing updates out regularly as he tweaks the app. I would highly recommend this app to to anyone that excises regularly and wishes to share or view the data. It’s well worth the £4.99 price.

That’s honestly so nice of you to say, thank you so much! I’m always working on more updates to make it even better too 😇
