Updated over a week ago

Welcome to Gym Plan.

On the Search screen you'll find our exclusive collection of workout plans.

You can choose to follow the plan exactly as written by our qualified trainers or you can modify an existing program to your needs. This saves you an enormous amount of planning time and still allows you the flexibility to choose exercises you prefer.

How to pick a plan

As you scroll down the screen you'll see the plans are grouped into categories.

Most often, members want to build some lean muscle and lose a few pounds of fat. We've got you covered, you are going to be lifting weights and burning calories with any of the plans!

The difference between the categories is the exercises and styles of training you get.

If you already know what you like pick a plan from the categories that match your style of training. If you're into weights and cardio, choose a plan from that category, don't worry you can adapt every element of the plans to your preferences.

You can also do single workouts from our huge library under the workouts tab, top left on the search screen. This is superb for days when you go off plan and just need a quick fix.
