Bodybuilding.com, one of the world’s largest fitness resources, is bringing its BodySpace offering – the largest online fitness network – to mobile devices in order to help people achieve their goals even more easily. The free fitness app, available on both Apple and Android devices, houses one of the industry’s most in-depth workout trackers, and provides people with the tools they need to succeed in getting fit.
Last year, members of BodySpace who were aiming to lose weight lost 823,066 pounds, and more than 4,500 people moved from obesity to a healthy weight based on percentage of body fat, so the company is coming from an extremely knowledgeable standpoint, with 26 million users worldwide.
“While there are a ton of fitness apps out there, most don’t really tie together people’s overall fitness goals with the programs, structure and tracking that the BodySpace app offers,” said Preston Lewis, lead product designer at Bodybuilding.com.
The app’s programs have been built by some of the most well-known, top-rated trainers in the world, including PhD’s, celebrity and professional trainers and athletes such as Jim Stoppani, Kris Gethin, Jamie Eason, Lee Labrada, and Ashley Conrad, who creates training programs for Hollywood stars such as Bradley Cooper, Kate Hudson, P. Diddy and Penelope Cruz. Users can also choose from thousands of top-rated training programs built by the members of the BodySpace community.
For those who aren’t ready to commit to a full program, or simply want to build their own program, the BodySpace app allows people to build workouts by choosing from an extensive database of more than 700 specific exercises categorized by type, muscle group and equipment.
“We want to remove the barriers to people getting fit and healthy, and this new app helps people easily get started, and offers the information and motivation to help them succeed,” said Jared Smith, product owner at Bodybuilding.com.
