Keeping it varied, FIT FIX might not be a great starting point for the complete fitness novice but it still offers plenty of great content for those looking for more inspiration.

Much like cookery apps, I’m not convinced it’s possible to have too many fitness apps. It’s great to have so many different options, generally ensuring that no matter what mood I’m in there’s something to tempt me. In the case of FIT FIX, it offers plenty of different workouts focused on everything from strength training and cardio, to running and yoga exercises. While some workout plans take 30-45 minutes to complete, others only take around 10 minutes, so there should be something available to do no matter how busy the rest of the day is.

fitfix4fitfix2FIT FIX uses a mixture of text and video guides. The former frequently consists of an introduction followed by a table guide to what should be done. For instance, there are great instructions for those delving into interval training either through running or cycling. In other cases, images are provided demonstrating how to lift kettle bells or dumbbells correctly.

Video guides tend to be a little more informative, providing clear visual instructions as to how to complete certain exercises. In the case of yoga it’s particularly useful, ensuring no risk of completing a move incorrectly or awkwardly.

Throughout, there are options for users to add specific guides to their workout routine, making it easy to look back on. It’s even possible to schedule workouts into one’s calendar, allowing no excuse for forgetting! Even better, for those users who might not always have a steady internet connection, it’s possible to download the videos and guides for later reference offline.

The only potential issue I could spot with FIT FIX is its lack of newbie-friendly workouts. While it suggests that some training might be great for the beginner, I’m not convinced. Instead, the app seems more appropriate for those who already have a reasonable level of fitness which will be worth bearing in mind for some users. Other than that, FIT FIX offers plenty of great content and will be ideal for those seeking variety.
