The best apps for digital training

Digital trainer apps are storming into our lives, and with good reasons. Over the years, the attention to health, psychophysical well-being and proper nutrition has been growing, leading more and more people closer to fitness. It’s also the lack of time that’s driving an increasing number of fitness enthusiasts – or aspiring ones – towards technology.

A digital guidance can easily become a powerful help to keep up in shape. Consider the early morning workout, or the late afternoon training after a long day spent working or studying (and maybe commuting). When time runs out so quickly, having a personal trainer available at your own convenience would really be a boon. That’s where the digital world steps in with apps that can guide, monitor and improve your training.

Self digital training: technology at the service of fitness

Over time, the availability of digital tools that proved innovative, affordable and easy to use drove increasing interest towards healthier lives. This is especially true in the case of fitness apps, which have lately evolved to become private trainers available 24 hours a day.

Growingly detailed in content and valued by their users, app stores offer a plethora of options to move to more active lifestyles. Ranging from counting the steps taken during the day (and reporting burnt calories) to offering a personalized training programme that meets your individual needs, we are easily left spoilt for choices. Then what are the best apps for training?

mywellness, all in one app

Your most faithful training companion, guiding you to your goal thanks to personalized training programmes and video tutorials for each exercise: this is mywellness’ identikit. The Technogym app for iOS and Android offers an innovative and engaging training experience; it allows you to achieve your goals – be it sports, fitness or health - in an easy, fast and fun way. Like most of the previous apps, it can be used to track common outdoor activities such as walking or running.

Use the mywellness app in any Technogym-equipped gym and connect it to the individual machine via QR Code or via Bluetooth. The result? You will find your session already waiting for you on the equipment, and the results will be tracked and saved in real time on your mywellness account.
