Making fitness a habit begins with having a solid workout routine that keeps you coming back. Maintaining that fitness habit long term requires good form and proper instruction to keep your body injury-free and performing at its best. Finally, keeping things new and exciting is a large part of staying motivated to move.
That’s why you should know about MyFitnessPal’s Self-Guided Workout Routines, available now on iOS.
BENEFITS OF SELF-GUIDED WORKOUTS
This Premium feature is like having an on-demand personal trainer at your fingertips. It gives you a complete workout built by performance specialists, complete with a warmup, workout of the day and a cooldown. These are workouts you can do at home, at the gym or outside at your favorite park.
You can choose from more than 100 workout routines that target specific areas — Think: core and full-body — and produce different results from torching calories to building strength to learning new skills.
HOW IT WORKS
Just press play, and follow the video coaching, which gives you visual form tips. There’s also a countdown timer between exercises so you can stay on track. You can also pause the workout at any time. Finally, the self-guided feature allows you to modify your workout by skipping moves that might not work for your body.
Even more, as soon as you complete your workout, it’ll save to your diary, which makes it an easy way to track and log calories burned from your strength workout.
Train like a pro wherever you go. Here, routines are grouped in the following collections:
- Core Strength
- Dumbbell Only
- Fast Fitness at Home
- Full-Body Burn
- Full-Body Kettlebell
- Healthy at Home
- HIIT Cardio Blast
- Low Impact
- Move Better For Mobility
- Run Strong
- Total Body
- “Mix It Up” (practice specific skills like handstands and a shrimp squat)
