Description

BodBot is a true digital personal trainer, creating workouts tailored to your goals, resources, physical abilities, desired difficulty and much more. Each workout is tailored down to the level of the individual exercises, and the plans adapt over time as you complete or miss sessions. Just as a good personal trainer will personalize your workout plan, we create an individual program for you and adapt it as you progress. Limited range of motion in the shoulders? We can work to correct that. Weaker in the back than in the chest? We can address that. Hamstrings too tight? Want to develop the biceps or the glutes? Can only workout in a few windows during the week? BodBot can handle it all, and your workouts will reflect all of these needs. We're committed to providing you with the best possible training plan and the very best workouts. More than this, if you miss a workout, or if you decide to go hiking on a whim, we can integrate this new information and update your training plan accordingly. The plan lives and breathes with you and for you. So what distinguishes a modern, science-based, intimately personalized training system? What does BodBot do - and why does this matter? ■ Personalization matters. If you broke your leg this morning, you probably shouldn’t be attempting heavy squats at night. Similarly, if your sleep has cratered for the past week, or if you suddenly come down with a fever, the previous trajectory of your fitness - along with last week’s view of this week’s best training plan - becomes obsolete. You need a recommendation that reflects your new circumstances. ■ Everyone has a different history: variations in posture, strength, cardiovascular fitness, range of motion, joint stability, joint mobility and much more. These variations matter. Rather than overloading a weak and unstable joint or hammering an already shortened and tight muscle, BodBot will work with you to improve performance and increase efficiency - through targeted fitness tests and objective assessments. This is not the hand-waving personalization of other fitness apps. This is modern, high quality physiology and kinesiology realized in intelligent training recommendations. ■ Accessibility matters - if you’re working out at home you should still be able to get a high-quality, targeted workout - not an arbitrary infinite loop of burpees, wall-squats and crunches. BodBot’s database of broad and deep exercise profiles, together with the sophisticated algorithms that run over the top of them, seamlessly handle changes in location and equipment. Similarly, schedules can run tight and can change - if your default Monday, Wednesday, Friday pattern is interrupted, or you suddenly have less time available than expected, BodBot will immediately adjust your training plan. - BodBot Plus - 1 month: USD $9.99 - BodBot Plus - Annual - 1 year: USD $59.99 Payment will be charged to iTunes Account at confirmation of purchase. You can manage your BodBot Plus subscription settings: you can turn off auto-renewal from your iTunes account settings after purchase, but refunds will not be provided for the unused portion of the term. Your account will be charged $9.99/$59.99 (depending on the product) for renewal within 24 hours prior to the end of the current period, unless auto-renewal is turned off at least 24 hours before the end of the current period. No cancellation of the current subscription is allowed during active subscription period. - Terms of Use: http://www.bodbot.com/Terms.html - Privacy Policy: http://www.bodbot.com/Privacy.html - Apple Health: BodBot will ask to read some of your health data - date of birth, heart rate, height, sex, steps, and weight - so that it can even more closely tailor its recommendations to you. It also saves your workout, height and weight data to the Apple Health app for use in your other apps that utilize that information.

    Great app for workouts tailored to your level, goals, and available equipment. Couple suggestions for added features on the scheduling part of the app: 1) I would like to see a more comprehensive calendar in the app. I’m new to the app but is seems that you need to check when your workouts are day-by-day-by-day. It would be nice to toggle between daily, weekly, and monthly calendar screens. 2) Also, it would be nice to be able to quickly add workouts to your google and/or apple calendar apps. All together this is a great app!!

    After using the “plan it for me” under schedule in settings for a week my workouts are over 3 hours long with about 30 stretches and 30 warmups

    Aside from the nutrition portion of the app that I could not figure out how to use, this app is put together in a somewhat easy to use fashion. That being said, in regards to the claim of being a pocket personal trainer, it is lacking. The idea of having people take a fitness test and then the app adapting the workouts according to the answers is a great idea. After playing around with app for a couple weeks, it seemed to always randomly pick exercise with no regard to either the seeds of the fitness test answers or the clever biometric tracking—which would be great for avoiding overtraining muscle groups. The app had me doing the same workouts on consecutive days at times for no reason at all. Ultimately, none of those unique features appeared to work correctly. After the app made me take my fitness tests and It said I failed on everything, it generated the same workout for me when I reported that I passed the fitness teats. I ended up doing my own research and changing workouts myself, rather than being able to trust any sort of comprehensive progression path that the app laid out due to the app’s randomness. There are complete free apps that do the same thing as this app in the areas that seem to actually be useful. So even though I wanted to love this app and trust it would be worth paying for, sadly it isnt.

    The free version is pretty good. The directions are clear and the exercises are appropriate. The motivational quotes attached to the workout reminders are a nice touch. I use the free version as a supplement to my workout days.
  • Love it!!!

    This is the only workout routine I have stuck with. Been using it consistently for about 7 months now. Just at home with some dumbbells and I started seeing results quickly. Definition in my arms. I have my butt back. 😁 My legs are getting definition and my core is slimming down and toning up! Highly, highly recommend!!

    I love this app. It personalizes your workout based on your current strength, weaknesses and goals, with plenty of variety to keep things interesting. I see some opportunities for improvement, but I have yet to find a better workout app.
  • Fantastic workout app, fantastic customer service
