Best Lift Tracking App
There are tons of workout tracker apps these days, and most of them require a monthly subscription fee of $5+/month. To be honest, I’m pretty sure the cheapest I found during my search was $10/month. At any rate, this app is free, but if you want to unlock all the features, it’s just $5 ONE TIME. You can unlock specific features for less than that btw.
I used the free version for a few weeks and it was good. I loved that I could add an unlimited number of exercises and workouts, and that I could just use my Apple Watch during the workout. I unfortunately couldn’t get the timer alarm to work on the free version for some reason. While I worked with tech support on the issue, I decided that regardless, I like the app and wanted to support them, so I upgraded to the full version (again, just $5 one time). The notable impacts that had for me was adding some pre-made movements and (the big one for me) unlocking auto start timer. Now I’m able to log my lift after each set and once I log it, the timer auto starts. Lucky for me, this fixed my issues with the timer. Now it does everything I wanted out of the app, and i don’t have to keep spending money on it!
There are other features that come with the upgrade, but they aren’t coming to me at the moment. Their website spells it out well, so check it out. Anyways, collectively, this is by far the best value workout app for my needs I’ve found and I definitely recommend it.
Best workout logger out there.
Short version: just download it already and pay the $5. You won’t regret it. Best money I’ve spent on my workouts since I bought my Alpha Grips.
Long version: I’m a fairly experienced lifter who doesn’t need to be told or shown how to do a workout or an exercise. I have my own plans I do and most of the workouts available on the App Store don’t do what I want them to do. This one is perfect. I’ve tried all the current gym log apps out there. BodySpace, FitList, Gymatic, Gymaholic, and several others not worth mentioning. BodySpace is great, but no Apple Watch support. FitList is great except you have to uninstall and reinstall every month or so when it stops syncing to your watch and you lose all your data, even if you’ve paid for premium. And the other two are way too expensive.
I used an app called GymBuddy way back when on the first gen iPhone and it was terrific, but unfortunately it’s no longer supported or updated. GymBook is similar to that in that you can add your own exercises, make custom workouts, and it doesn’t get in your way with trying to show or tell you what to do. This app works seamlessly with the Apple Watch for logging, tracks your workouts to Apple health so you close your rings, and for $5????? Hell yeah I’ll take it! I’d give 10 stars if I could.
I love this app! I have created my entire workout on this app, all 18 weeks! Now although this app has a lot of amazing features, it is missing a few things in my opinion. I do not write reviews often, but being a proud platinum member now, I want to give good recommendations to make the app better! Firstly, I wish there was a better description about how the app is supposed to be used. When I created my workouts, I separated the days by each phase in a single workout. I thought this would be okay because the workout you select asks: “what days are these workouts?” Unfortunately that is not the case, since I have phase 1, phase 2, and phase 3 (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday) all in a single workout, I never technically “finish a workout” each day since it only counts executed workouts if the entire workout is finished. Secondly, now that I know how the app is supposed to be properly used, I’d like to create a workout for each day but I cannot do that easily. That is because I’d have to reinsert each and every workout, sets, reps, and rest times individually! What this app NEEDS is a COPY and PASTE feature for copying MULTIPLE or INDIVIDUAL workouts into other workouts. This would save people tons of time!
Developer Response ,
Thanks a lot for your very nice feedback and your support 😊 - In case you didn't notice, there is an FAQ page under https://gymbookapp.com/faq. Maybe some of your questions might be answered there.
Also, you can duplicate a single workout by swiping right on it and selecting 'Duplicate'. Maybe this helps.
