Written iPhone Health App Review
Fit Phone is a digital workout journal for the iPhone from developer Blaine DaRonco. Fit Phone keeps track of your workouts and aims to replace the old pen and paper method of recording your progress in the gym.
This is not an app for people who are looking for exercise descriptions, pictures or instructions. Fit Phone is purely a workout journal for recording exercises, weights, reps, date etc. Having said that though, these are very valuable functions for anyone who is serious about their personal fitness. Fit Phone also has a useful function for calculating your one-rep max for any lift, which is a handy stat to have.
Workout information (name, date & exercises) are entered into the app, along with weight and reps for each. Fit Phone comes with a list of exercises, categorized by muscle group, which you can scroll through and add to your workout. The list is by no means exhaustive, but covers the basics. You can also add your own exercises as you please.
Fit Phone stores all your workouts, and allows you to list your results for particular a particular exercise or even generate graphs of your progress. One major down-side of Fit Phone is that the reporting features, which include the graphs and charts features, are only available if you have an internet connection. Your workout data is sent online in order to generate the graphs,
Fit Phone sells in the App Store for $4.99. A little overpriced for what it is, but worth it if you spend a lot of time in the gym.
