BOISE, Idaho–(BUSINESS WIRE)–
Bodybuilding.com, one of the world’s largest fitness resources, is bringing BodySpace the largest online fitness network to mobile devices to help people achieve their goals even more easily. The free fitness app, available on both Apple and Android devices, houses one of the industrys most in-depth workout trackers, and provides people with the tools they need to succeed in getting fit.
The new BodySpace app provides users with one of the largest resources for top-rated training programs and exercises and fresh, targeted content to help users start, maintain and achieve their fitness goals. Last year, members of BodySpace who were aiming to lose weight lost 823,066 pounds, and more than 4,500 people moved from obesity to a healthy weight based on percentage of body fat.
While there are a ton of fitness apps out there, most dont really tie together peoples overall fitness goals with the programs, structure and tracking that the BodySpace app offers, said Preston Lewis, lead product designer at Bodybuilding.com.
The best personal training programs for specific goalsThe BodySpace app makes it easy for seasoned fitness gurus or those just starting out to quickly sign in or sign up, and find a step-by-step fitness program specifically geared toward their goals, whether they want to lose weight, gain muscle, build strength, or improve overall fitness. People simply plug in their experience level, gender, age and target number of workouts per week, and the app suggests training programs that meet individuals personal goals.
The programs have been built by some of the most well-known, top-rated trainers in the world, including PhD’s, celebrity and professional trainers and athletes such as Jim Stoppani, Kris Gethin, Jamie Eason, Lee Labrada, and Ashley Conrad, who creates training programs for Bradley Cooper, Kate Hudson, P. Diddy and Penelope Cruz. People can also choose from thousands of top-rated training programs built by the members of the BodySpace community.
Find or create the perfect workoutFor those who arent ready to commit to a full program, or simply want to build their own program, the BodySpace app allows people to build workouts by choosing from an extensive database of more than 700 specific exercises categorized by type, muscle group and equipment.
We want to remove the barriers to people getting fit and healthy, and this new app helps people easily get started, and offers the information and motivation to help them succeed, said Jared Smith, product owner at Bodybuilding.com.
In-depth workout trackerOnce people have selected or built a program, they can add it to their BodyCalendar and set reminders for their regular workouts. The workout tracker not only provides suggested reps, sets and rest timers, but also includes tips for specific exercises, photos to provide guidance, and videos to show exactly how the exercise should be performed. People can track their personal workout stats (weight lifted and cardio times) by pounds and by hours, and can compare against their previous stats.
ShopFrom directly within the BodySpace app, users can shop from Bodybuilding.com’s massive selection of top brands of supplements, clothing and gear.
New Social Features Coming SoonAs with any fitness program, motivation, planning and social support are keys to achieving fitness goals. Future versions of the app will have additional social features so that users will be able to follow, track and manage news feeds from BodySpace friends and followers just like they manage their friends on Facebook.
Bodybuilding.com offers more than 9,900 health and fitness supplements and accessories to help over 26 million people every month achieve their health, fitness, and appearance goals. This online powerhouse gives users more than 34,000 pages of FREE information, including more than 28,000 articles and videos, expert online trainers, and new content added daily.
