When it comes to fitness regimens, what works for one athlete won’t necessarily work for another—which is why the exercise and nutrition app 8fit devises a bespoke program for everyone who uses it.
Enter your vital stats—age, height, weight, current and desired body fat estimate, plus your current levels of activity—and then set a goal. Whether you want to lose fat or gain muscle mass, the cogs will whir and produce a plan.
The exercise routines are rooted in HIIT (high-intensity interval training), and you won’t need any special equipment.
Choose your level of difficulty and select workouts that target specific muscle groups, like core, arms, or glutes. Each one gives you an estimated calorie count and detailed instructions on proper form. Turn on notifications so you’re reminded when there’s work to do.
The recipes in your meal plan are devised by trained nutritionists and cover your individual protein, fat, and carb needs. Select your preferred diet: vegetarian, paleo, or omnivore, for example. Or create a custom diet by selecting individual ingredients you’d like to leave out. When you find a dish you like, simply add your ingredients to the in-app shopping list—then fuel up for your next workout.
