Review: Freeletics Digital Fitness Program
Freeletics is an app in which allows you to have, at hand, an individualized training plan for working out, routines that are customized to whatever training routine and goals you have set, and a community that is global for support and inspiration.
The app allows you to track your own progress and share the results. Competing with others who share the same goals is another aspect of the app that may appeal to those looking to lose weight, stay motivated, or just have an outlet as far as dieting and exercising goes. Freeletics stands for freedom; basically you have the right to choose when and where you want to work out.
Because there are many apps similar to the Freeletics app, it is not an easy task to choose from if you are set on keeping a workout and diet routine within an app. Because of the amount of dedication and motivation that an online group or app requires, it definitely won’t be for everybody. Those looking to lose a lot of weight and keep at it for a long time, or forever, this app may not be for you—or any app for that matter. For complete motivation and longevity within your routine, being in a physical group with a physical trainer may suit those who fall into that group the very best.
When searching through the app and seeing what it has to offer overall, it seemed to have a lot of tips and tricks; things that are definitely searchable online. Because of the way they structure the workout plans, it may seem easy to get discouraged very quickly, even for the most determined. One part of the app that disappointed me is the many different workouts that don’t require any weights or equipment but just simply my own body weight. That may be a way to work out once in a while if you are in a pinch, but to make a routine and stick to it with just simply body weight will not actually help someone to lose weight or tone up, so to say that it would actually help someone to do that is misleading.
Any work out plan will require weights, cardio equipment, or running, and a great diet plan—but something that is doable and contoured to your own personal body type. The Freeletics app is banking their entire app success rate on those who want to work out whenever they want and without having to have a gym membership or any equipment whatsoever. They have a built-in psychological mechanism which is supposed to help you keep yourself on track, which needs motivation in itself to look that information up and want to keep with the routine itself.
Overall, the Freeletics app seems to be based on a whole lot of pipe dreams and not really have the tools that one needs who really is serious about changing their diet and exercise routine. Most people need a motivation, and that typically requires someone in person; especially when implementing things which are totally new into their lives, like diet and exercise. Freeletics is a great way to feel unmotivated quickly because it doesn’t give you the correct tools and information you need in order to be successful in getting the results you are looking for.
