Nothing beats having a personal trainer on-hand to guide you to your fitness goals. But if you’re strapped for cash, personal training apps can provide useful guidance during your workouts. Since the options are nearly limitless, I’ve narrowed the field to bring you 5 of the best personal training apps on the market.


Jefit App

This app contains powerful fitness routine planning and tracking tools that help you target your workouts and keep easy track of your progress. Plan a routine— you can build whole workouts around individual body parts, if you like— before you hit the gym. Once you’re inside, JEFIT takes over, telling you what’s next (including animations) and even timing rest periods between exercise. It stores your info for later reference, plus packs more than 1,300 instructions and animations to help you find new exercises to achieve your goals.

Stronglifts 5×5

Based on the popular app Stronglifts 5×5 workout— 5 sets of 5 reps of free weight compound lifts— this app is out to make you really strong, really fast on only three workouts a week. Like your own personal Tony Horton, Stronglifts tells you what exercises to do, how much weight you should lift (making on-the-fly adjustments when you plateau or fail) and congratulates you when you put in a solid effort or achieve an important goal.

Nike Training Club

Nike training club is your ultimate personal training app. They provide you with 185+ workouts from strength and endurance to mobility and yoga— featuring world-class Nike Master trainers in every drill.
