Can You Lose Weight Using An App?*

Above: You can use the Body Vision App anywhere

I get it, there are loads of fitness apps out there but finding the right one for you can be very challenging. For many, weight loss and toning up can be increasingly difficult and giving up often seems to be the easy way out. From experience, getting a personal trainer tends to be the best way if you are wanting to get motivated, educated, and disciplined when it comes to working out. However most personal trainers charge a lot per the hour (between £20.00-£25.00) so it is no wonder why many of us give up on the dream of having that healthy and sustainable body.

Recently I have been using the Body Vision app which can easily be downloaded onto an iPhone or Android mobile device. Body Vision is the only provider of weight loss coaching who can make it simple, satisfying, and sustainable throughout your fitness journey. Every week you’ll receive lessons on the Body Vision method providing you with 1 to 2 assignments each time. You’ll have full communication with a personal trainer (Simon) who will guide you on how to apply the lessons to your own weight loss journey. Also as part of the service, you will also have the option to email Simon with any of your questions throughout your time using the app (which is perfect if you are a beginner) with an additional email every week containing videos on the latest tips and tricks.

For the last three weeks I have been using this app and it is the perfect buddy to accompany you to the gym or at home. I love how the training plan generator and trainer mode allows you to personalise your workouts so that you can really make the most out of it. Under ‘Your Fitness‘ tab in the menu drop-down, you can record your weight, height, fitness level, and you can also take a picture to track your progress. You also have the option to select the equipment that you have available to you under the ‘Your Equipment‘ tab, which in my opinion makes a workout plan just as good as having a personal trainer create one for you. These options also makes the app extremely versatile and perfect if you are finding yourself working out in different locations. As I travel a lot for work, I always find my ‘pocket personal trainer’ extremely handy to have when it comes to planning out workouts.

Using the app is easy. As you can see above, I have selected the following equipment available to me: barbell, bench, dumbbells, incline bench, step, and treadmill. Then under the ‘Your Workout‘ tab, you have different workouts set out per day (except Saturday and Sunday which are rest days) which are created accordingly against the equipment you have available to you. So in todays workout I have the following set up:

Warm up: 10 minutes
Exercise: 48 minutes
Cool Down: 10 minutes

I then have the option to review the workout before starting. I love the fact that the app also comes with a timer which makes it extremely easy to keep track of time. The educational element of the app comes with photographic and written guidance which ensures that you are carrying out the exercises safely. It is also a great way to learn new exercises and build up confidence- there are too many people out there who avoid working out because they feel ‘silly’ when it comes to doing exercises that they aren’t familiar with. I have learnt so much using this app already and I cannot wait to see the results in a few weeks time.

Would you like a trial out this app with unlimited access for free? All you have to do is download the app here and then fill out a Google Survey Form which will be sent to you. Easy peasy!
