    Hey everyone,
    I tried searching, but didn't find anything really useful. Does anyone know of or can recommend a good workout app? Maybe something that easily builds workouts and routines to achieve goals?? Thanks in advance.

    Back on Android I was looking for a workout app too, to track routines. Unfortunately I didn't find anything that was a "fitness log" type app, at least not one that was easy to use. Wonder if there's one for WP7.

    The problem was while a lot of the apps could create routines, they were rigid. As in, this routine is ALWAYS x number of sets and y number of reps at z weight. Well, my workouts varied more than that, or sometimes were a set number of reps/sets but the measuring aspect was speed and not completeness.

    A real workout log app, complete with comparisons of exercises over time, would be neat.

    Deekfit for routines, or Fitlife 620, I prefer Deekfit but own both. Deekfit just works better and is more flexible.

    Ok, I have Deekfit installed, but for the life of me, I can't figure it out. I'm not a dumb guy, but for Christ's sake, I just can't figure this app out. You have NO idea how DUMB and STUPID I feel. Most apps, I don't even need a manual, but for some reason, this thing has me stumped. I think there are too many options.
    I JUST want to start the Starting Strength routine and modify it for MY schedule. How hard is that? Obviously too hard for me to figure out.

    Yes, laugh all you want. Call me a n00b. Call me a dumba$$. I deserve it. I really cant figure out this one app. Anyone got any tips on how to get started with it? Like I said, I just want to do the Starting Strength routines.

    How do others use this???

    From Start Screen:
    Tap Deekfit Gym Pro Tile
    Tap Routines
    Swipe right to Default Routines
    Tap Starting Strength
    Look at tray, tap the pencil button (Edit)
    You are now at Edit Routine Page

    From this page, rename the routine if you want, redescribe the routine, and change how often your routine repeats (looks like default is every two weeks).

    Tap arrow to go to next page
    You can now add / delete exercises
    When done, hit the save button

    Your new routine will now be saved on "my routines." You shouldn't have to Swipe right to Default Routines anymore. Any time you want to edit the routine, hit the edit button while you have the routine open.

    Hope that helps

    If its not free save your self some money and put Office and Excel. Personally I create workout plans every week on Excel on my computer --> upload to Skydrive --> use WP to modify my workouts at the gym.

    I do this for expenses to a great way of utilizing Excel and Office suite on your phone and PC

    If you are looking for a good, general health app- take a look at livescape- it's pretty fantastic.

    Thanks Red! I'll give that a try.

    Based, I used to do that with my BB, but inputting data on a spreadsheet isn't the greatest so I kind of got away from that. I'll take a look at that if DeekFit doesn't work out for me.
