    Introduction

    In your Gym Profile, you can find several options to tailor Fitbod to your unique fitness preference. For example, you’ll be able to generate workouts based on your goals, what equipment you have, and how much time you have to work out. There are additional settings to further personalize your program to better fit your workout style, likes, and dislikes. 

     

    Gym Profile Settings

    Available Equipment

    Customize your generated workouts based on the available equipment at your gym, work, or home. You can quickly select/unselect equipment based on category (i.e. Free Weights, Racks, Bars, & Benches, etc.). To do this, scroll to the desired category and SELECT ALL if you'd like to select all pieces of equipment as available or DESELECT ALL to mark as unavailable.

     

    Important Note:

    ***Exercise equipment labeled with a “checkmark” indicates that it is available to you. Exercise equipment labeled in white (with no “checkmark”) indicates that it is NOT available to you.

     

    Bodyweight Only Workout

    This Your Gym profile option is great if you don’t have any fitness equipment available or you simply don’t want to use any. Toggling this option ON will only recommend exercises that do not require any fitness equipment. Many users utilize this option while traveling (no gym available) or for a quick home/outdoor workout.

     

    Fitness Goal

    Select a fitness goal that best suits your fitness needs and interests. Fitbod’s fitness goals were created by Fitbod’s team of fitness experts and trainers. The listed Fitness Goals are as follows:

    General Fitness

    Overall great total body program.

    Strength Training

    Focus on getting stronger and building muscle mass. High amounts of compound movements while engaging large muscle groups. Focused muscle groups: chest, back, legs, shoulders.

    Muscle Tone

    Higher reps and lower rest times keep your heart rate high during a workout. Also, more time will be recommended for cardio exercises.

    Bodybuilding

    A routine a bodybuilder might follow. Similar to strength training but biceps and triceps are included in focused muscle groups. Furthermore, the focus isn't totally about getting stronger but more on the physique.

    Powerlifting

    Competitive back squat, bench press, and deadlift type routine. One of these lifts or variations will be a part of every workout. Lower reps and higher weight with less cardio. Only upper/lower split or full body option.

    Olympic Weightlifting

    Variations of the clean, jerk, and snatch. Less cardio, more sets of fewer reps (e.g., singles, doubles). Always a full-body workout.

     

    Q: “My fitness goal is to ‘lose weight' and this isn’t a fitness goal in Fitbod, which fitness goal is right for me?”

    A: When someone wants to “lose weight," they usually mean they want to lose fat. We quote “lose weight” because weight can be an uninformative number and shouldn’t be the primary focus when beginning a fat loss journey. Losing fat while gaining muscle does not necessarily mean you are going to lose weight.

    A common misconception people have is that exercise alone is going to result in a substantial amount of fat loss. For example, doing a ton of sit-ups is going to flatten your abdomen region, which is simply not true. Exercise (a combination of strength and cardio) is an important factor when wanting to lose fat, but the main driver is going to be diet and eating habits. So how can Fitbod help you lose fat? Using Fitbod in combination with following a healthy nutrition plan, you will surely be able to reach your fat loss fitness goal. It is recommended to select either General Fitness, Muscle Tone, or Strength Training (whichever best fits your secondary fitness goals) in the app if you are looking to “lose weight." You can also use a combination of these Fitness Goals by creating multiple gym profiles.

     

    Fitness Experience

    Tailor your workouts based on your fitness experience. This gym profile setting will ensure that Fitbod is not recommending exercises that are out of your comfort zone or too difficult. It is important to begin building your strength and familiarizing yourself with the basics before moving to more advanced movements. This will increase your comfort level and confidence in the gym while reducing the chance of injury.  

     

    Circuits & Supersets

    With this setting turned ON, Fitbod will organize your recommended workout into supersets & circuits. A superset is when you do two exercises back to back with little to no rest between them. A circuit is when you do three or more exercises back to back with little or no rest between them.

    For more info on how circuits & supersets work and how to create them, please visit Circuits & Supersets.

     

    Cardio Recommendations

    Tailor your workouts even further by selecting your preferred cardio exercise, whether that be steady-pace or HITT, you decide. You'll have the option to select which cardio exercise you’d rather do and remove the ones you don't from your program. You also can select if you prefer your cardio session to be before or after your strength training workout.

     

    Warm-up Sets

    Lifting heavy and want to acclimate your muscles and joints to the movement? This setting will automatically add warm-up sets to the main lifts of your workout and when your lifts are a bit on the heavy side. 

     

    Warm-up & Cool-down

    iOS

    Insert a warm-up or cool-down routine consisting of Soft Tissue exercises, Static Stretches, Dynamic Stretches, and Primer exercises to your workouts.  For more info on why you should always warm-up and cool-down and how to add them into your workout, please visit Warm-up & Cool-down for more info.

     

    Android

    We're sorry, Warm-up & Cool-down exercises are not available on Android just yet! Our team is hard at work to bring the best features to match the great iOS app experience. To see other features that are on our roadmap for Android, please visit our Plans for Android page.

     

    Workout Duration

    Customize your workouts to fit the amount of time you have available to exercise.

    Please keep in mind that Fitbod estimates the completion time of a generated workout. The time it takes to complete a workout can differ amongst individuals even though the Workout Duration setting is the same. If you find yourself completing Fitbod workouts consistently faster or slower, please change the Workout Duration setting accordingly until you have reached a duration setting that best fits your goal.

     

    Training Splits

    This option allows you to choose how you want your workouts to be constructed based on the properties of the muscle groups. Please find additional information about each training split below:

    Fresh Muscle Groups

    Build your workout based on the two most fresh primary muscle groups and core. The two selected muscle groups are based on muscle recovery state, exercise history, and fitness goal.

    Upper/Lower Split

    Target either your upper or lower body.

    Full Body

    Build a workout that targets all muscle groups.

    Push/Pull/Lower Split

    Push - Chest, Triceps, and Shoulders

    Pull - Back and Biceps

    Lower - Legs and Glutes

     

    Important Note:

    ***Core (Lower Back and Abs) will be recommended in every workout!

     

    Exclude Exercises

    This option will prevent specific exercises from being included in your generated workouts. Many users use this option when recovering from an injury and have limitations when performing certain movements. You can quickly select/unselect equipment by tapping the name of the exercise on the list.

    Exercises labeled with a “checkmark” indicate exclusion from your exercise library.

    Exercise equipment labeled in white (with no “checkmark”) indicates inclusion in your exercise library.

     

    Important Note:

    ***We're sorry, Excluded Exercises are not available on Android just yet! Our team is hard at work to bring the best features to match the great iOS app experience. To see other features that are on our roadmap for Android, please visit our Plans for Android page.

     

    Muscle Recovery Percentage

    This Your Gym profile option will allow you to manually adjust the recovery state of your muscle groups. Many users utilize this option if their muscles recover at a different pace than what the app had anticipated.

    You can also edit these percentages within your Recovery screen by selecting # Fresh Muscle Groups (top right corner) > Edit (top right corner)

    For information about how Fitbod measures muscle recovery, please visit the How Fitbod Measures Muscle Recovery article.

     

    Multiple Gym Profiles

    With Fitbod, you can have multiple Your Gym profiles! This feature is great if you exercise at more than one gym (commercial gym vs. home gym) and travel frequently so you’ll be able to get a great workout wherever you are. It is also very useful if you like to switch in between Fitness Goals depending on your routine. For example, if you plan on working out 4 days per week, you can focus on strength training for 2 days out of your routine and Olympic weightlifting on the other 2 days by simply switching to your appropriate Your Gym profile.

    To add additional Your Gym profiles:

    1. Go to the Workout screen
    2. Your Gym profile (top center)
    3. “...” Icon
    4. + Create New Gym Profile
    5. Create a name for your profile

    Fitbod Achievements Explained

    Here, you can find additional information about each Fitbod achievement and how they track your progress over time with Fitbod.

     

    Projected 1 Rep Max (1RM)

    Your projected 1RM is the theoretical maximum weight you can lift in 1 rep for a given exercise, calculated from your past exercise history. This value will always be slightly higher than your actual max weight logged.

    In Fitbod, we use this number to calculate how much you should lift in other set and rep ranges. This number is critical for monitoring and optimizing your progress.

    Fitbod won't ask you to test your 1RM. Testing your 1RM can be an intense endeavor, and requires a high degree of caution in order to avoid injury. Instead, we use a modified Bryzcki formula to compute your projected 1RM. Think of this as a normalized number that describes how strong you are in the exercise, taking into account the varying sets and reps scheme that you perform.

    Once we have your theoretical 1RM, we use a chart (a modified Prilepin's formula) to determine the percentage of your 1RM to perform for the recommended sets and reps of the workouts. Many generic programs will ask you to perform a percentage of your 1RM. Since we know your 1RM, we go ahead and make the calculation for you when recommending sets, reps, and weight.

     

    Volume Record

    Volume is the total weight logged across all sets in a given exercise performance. For example:

     

    Bench Press 

    5 x 95 lbs

    5 x 95 lbs

    5 x 95 lbs   =   Volume of 2,375 lbs 

    5 x 95 lbs

    5 x 95 lbs

     

     Volume record represents the highest volume of weight logged for that exercise.

     

    Repetition Record

    The highest total reps logged in a single set of an exercise.

     

    Weight Record

    The highest weight logged in a single rep of an exercise.

    Important Note: Performing the same weight at higher reps will not change the weight record achievement. The weight record achievement displays the set at which the achievement was first received. For example, your current weight record for Bench Press is 95 lbs in 1 rep. Performing a set of 3 reps at 95lbs will not change your weight record and 95 lbs in 1 rep.

    Muscle Recovery in Fitbod

    Regular exercise (both cardio and strength-based training) can provide short-term and long-term benefits to your health. A major component that many people miss during their fitness journey is the importance of muscle recovery. With Fitbod, you can track the recovery state of your muscle groups based on your logged workouts and the app will plan your next workout based on your muscle recovery state.

    1__1_.png      2__2_.png

    3.png

     

     

    How Fitbod Measures Muscle Recovery

    When you log an exercise, Fitbod measures the impact of the particular exercise, sets, reps, and weight on a muscle group. After completing a full workout, Fitbod provides a composite heat-map visualizing how the set of exercises performed has collectively impacted the muscular system.

    For an individual muscle group, Fitbod examines the sum of all exercises targeting that muscle group and assigns a muscle recovery percentage between 0% and 100%. Muscles fully recover over a 6-day period in Fitbod.

    If you have granted Apple Health sync permissions or inputted your Body Stats (Height, Weight, Age, Gender, etc), Fitbod will adjust your muscle recovery percentage appropriately. 

    For cardio exercises, Fitbod will also take into account how often and frequently you log a given cardio exercise when computing muscle recovery state.

    Fitbod attempts to design a full workout considering the relative freshness of all muscle groups. However, it’s not necessary to avoid a muscle until 100% recovery. You can continue to work semi-recuperated muscle groups as long as you provide ample recovery time. Fitbod will never recommend an exercise that targets a 0% recovered muscle group, unless under specific conditions.

     

    Your Muscle Recovery Percentage: Your Gym Profile

    This option in Your Gym profile will allow you to manually adjust the recovery state of your muscle groups. Many users utilize this option if their muscles recover at a different rate than what the app had anticipated.

    You can also edit these percentages within your Recovery screen by selecting Muscle Group Percentages from with Your Gym Profile and then Edit (top right corner).

    Adding a New Band to the Collection
