FitStadium aims high in terms of what it expects you to be able to achieve, but in a way that makes it a refreshing workout app. It doesn’t pander to your urges to wimp out by any means.
Starting out by taking a few details and running you through a few exercises to see how good you are, FitStadium soon sets you up with a workout plan that should suit your needs. You can choose to take between 15 and 45 minutes to perform the exercises, meaning you should always have time to get stuff done. The exercises aren’t reliant on owning lots of equipment either, with most requiring a chair at the absolute most.
That doesn’t mean that FitStadium is easy by any means. I decided to opt for strength training exercises and consider myself as moderately fit. By the end of the workout, I felt far from moderately fit. My tip? Aim low in what you tell it you can do, and work your way up. FitStadium likes to punish.
FitStadium works well though. Each exercise comes with a simple video tutorial to help you know what to expect and how to maintain good posture. It’s all clearly laid out too, with buttons easily explained and there being little need for you to poke around too much.
As you progress, FitStadium adjusts according to your needs with a steady supply of stats making you feel good about yourself.
There’s a subscription fee involved if you want to use it for longer than 2 weeks and it is a little pricey ($79.99 buys you a year) but I can see it providing noticeable results, as long as you keep up with it. The price should encourage you to keep it up too, for the sake of value for money. As a kind of virtual personal trainer, FitStadium is pretty useful.
