A fitness app gives you levels of training modules, but you need to be self-motivated enough to do it. If you are a beginner, you need a trainer, because you need someone experienced with you to make sure your movements are right and hold you and rectify it if you go off track. Fitness apps are helpful if you know the movements perfectly.

I’ve been using a fitness app for over six months now and it has been working well for me. It makes me monitor my ideal weight and also helped me control my calorie intake for the day. It provides a search option which enables me to search for calories in any dish/food item. This app is especially helpful for me when I go on a keto-diet.
Fitness apps are helpful only if a person is disciplined as there is no one available physically to make you do things than perform certain exercises. People, who find it hard to gather motivation to workout and pay attention to health, often lose interest in the app. On the other hand, the disciplined ones follow the instructions on the app.

No, I don’t think fitness applications are helpful. While using an application, you have to be mentally and physically prepared but when it comes to hiring a trainer or some professional, you get enough motivation and some push to work upon your goals. Every one of us has different a physique.

I find using fitness apps really helpful. It keeps my workout and diet consistent. Initially, it helped me in figuring out the right routine. But the only drawback is after some time when you yourself memorise all the workouts and diet plans, it barely is of any use.

They are helpful in keeping track of your goals and progress. Also, some of the apps that I’ve used have particularly been very good in calculating and tracking your calorie goals. Apart from that, if you are new to this world, they help you by suggesting and demonstrating exercises as well.
