Get proper gym training on your iPhone

Updated over a week ago

We're specifically designed for use local gyms.

We're different to other apps in that we make sure you spend less screen time and more training time.

Having something to aim at every workout is vital.

There is nothing more disheartening than watching someone aimlessly wander from machine to machine in the gym with no goals or well thought out plan. It's a recipe for failure and paves the way to giving up.

We're faster and better than a notepad.

Very few people have the time to research the best plans for working out. We take that burden away from you.

We get it.

We know that there will be exercises you don't like or simply don't want to do. That's okay. It's unrealistic for any personal trainer to expect someone to follow everything they're asked to do. The real world does not work that way. This is why we've made sure you can customize your workouts and exercises. This is something you will do more and more as you get experienced with your gym training.

Simple tracking.

The app shows you the weight you lift lifted on an exercise. This means you don't have to remember and more importantly you can try to beat it!


We have 200 preset plans covering a wide range of goals and training styles. Why we have so many is to give you the flexibility to explore different training styles and keep your motivation high. The gym isn't about short-term fixes the real magic happens when it's a lifestyle you enjoy.

You don't have to think.

You don't have to think or plan anything if you don't want to. Many of our most dedicated members simply pick a plan and get to work on completing it. They pick one that broadly matches their goals, knowing that they can make any micro changes as they go. We don't want you to waste time thinking. Just doing. As the best results come from consistency not trying to attain perfection.

We have more exercises than any app.

We have the biggest library of exercises, with 900 you can try. This might sound crazy but once you factor in all the machines and free-weights in fully kitted out commercial gyms you'll be glad you have them.

You can complete control - if you need it.

You have complete control to modify your workouts if that is something you want to do. You don't have to, what you get is all you need. However, as you become more experienced (that'll happen faster than you think) you will start to discover the exercises you connect with best. You will want to give these exercises preference over others. Everyone is different, there is no single best exercise for everyone. It's often a journey of discovery and practice.

It's proper gym training.

Above all why Gym Plan works is the fact it is proper gym training. No AI or bots creating random programs. Qualified trainers that have decades of experience and live for the gym. We've created what is in effect blueprints you can personalise over time with a simple tap or each set you'll train more frequently and better than ever.

For all fitness levels, experience and ability.

Beginners will enjoy the step by step nature of Gym Plan. Gym veterans will enjoy the challenge and the fact that they have the control to train how they want yet be pushed to achieve more.

We have Personal Trainers using our app for themselves and their clients.
