What was the last time when you had visited a gym for workout? One more question: what was the last time when you worked under a trainer? The answer to both the questions is same: you don’t remember, right? But when you’re working in shifts day and night and your schedule is as messed up as the paint book of a child, how can you expect yourself to be enrolled in for such an elite course of health supervision! A bigger crime would be to get enrolled and then making up excuses everyday to your trainer for not attending the class. After all you can’t offend your boss for that petty health issue, can you? I might be sounding like boss right now but it’s a fact that most gym enthusiasts of the working class fail to comply with their fitness schedules and most of the time, quit it!


No more quitting because now we have truTrainer, the latest iOS app that has been developed by “My Gym Team”. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and requires iOS 7.0 or any later version of the OS. This app has also been optimized for iPhone 5, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.


truTrainer sets you up with a personal trainer on your iPhone. So you don’t actually meet your trainer but you can chat with him anytime and keep in touch. You can pick a trainer of your own choice after going through their profile where the complete bio-data of their professional career is given. Then you can share your personal stats with him/her and let him/her know about your body and working regime. Then he/she will create a training schedule for you accordingly and keep monitoring on your daily progresses which you’ll submit in the app. The training schedule consists of the various exercises that you have to perform along with proper demonstrated pictures and weight specifications and you can work out in gym or at your home. This way you’ll always be working under the direct, or you can say indirect, supervision of a certified trainer without having to abide by all the rules of the game.


After some vigorous days of working out, a quitting option always comes in mind. Your trainer will not only be guiding you in your physical training but will also help you mentally inspiring and supporting you at different stages. You can ask him/her any questions anytime. Moreover, if you think that a particular trainer doesn’t fit your requirements or if you two are not on the same level of comfort, you can cancel him/her anytime you want and shift to a new one.

Though the app is available for free in the App Store, hiring a trainer will certainly cost you money in any world whether ‘real’ or ‘virtual’. Before hiring a trainer, you can read their price and if it suits you, move on!

So overall, truTrainer is a brilliant platform for trainees to get trained under certified professionals and grow some muscles!

Pros: choose your own personal trainer; custom designed training schedules for you; mental support; free (with in-app purchases).

Cons: none.

I will give this app 4.5 out of 5 stars.
