PK Fitness app review: transform your workout

Reviews

Introduction

Apps have had a huge impact in our lives, and not just in a sense of offering us games and entertainment, they also provide productivity tools that can be used in a variety of aspects of life. Nowhere is this more noticeable than in the field of health and fitness. You can now use apps to help you train, track your progress, and achieve the results you’re after. The PK Fitness app is an excellent example of an app that can help you transform the way you exercise and engage in activity. This app can be used on your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone, it's even capable with the Apple Watch.

The app is explained as an activity, exercise, and workout tracker that also has a social network you can connect with. This one works to track all the effort you're making so that you can view your progress and make changes where needed. It's able to work with a heart rate monitor giving you even more information you can use.

Unlock the Mysteries

If you are currently trying to change your body, maybe build muscle, lose weight, or improve your health overall then it’s important to track your activity and your results as you go. Tracking is the only way you’ll be able to tell what’s working and where changes need to be made. There’s no need to hire an expensive personal trainer because you can download the PK Fitness app instead and start unlocking the mysteries of your personal health.

This app can be explained pretty easily. It works to track your exercise, workouts, and activity no matter what that activity may be. It provides information such as the calories you have burned, your pace, the duration you have traveled, the workout type, the distance, and even a map. Think of it as your own personal fitness journal if you will. With that said, all of this information is gathered for you without you having to do a thing. You can focus on your workout and throw all your energy into it, knowing this app is looking after the details. The fact the information is displayed in real-time can also act as a real motivator to help you get through more strenuous activities.

For added functionality you can use this app with a Bluetooth enabled heart rate monitor or, better yet, the Apple Watch. By using the heart rate monitor you will be able to uncover even more details about your workout and the progress you are making.

Obviously, this is great for anyone who has set some fitness goals and needs a way to track their progress. Even fitness groups and personal trainers are seeing value in the app as well. Everyone from beginner level athletes to those at the top of their game can use it.

Connecting You with Others

Of course the PK Fitness app isn't alone in this category there are literally hundreds of apps that can track activity. So PK Fitness goes that one step further and also provides a social network so that you can chat with others who are using the app. You can offer each other advice, tips, motivation, and help. It’s your own little community that you can reach out to whenever you need a little help.

What I really like about this social network is that you will be able to reach out to a wide range of people that are at different levels, meaning beginners to athletes who are at their peak.

Going the Extra Mile

The PK Fitness app has been developed by Bred Ventures Inc who really wanted to be sure the offering went that extra mile.

"PK Fitness is a new fitness methodology that dramatically simplifies fitness," says Bred Ventures Inc. “The PK Method provides a short-hand for athletes, trainers, and individuals to communicate, track, and manage their fitness journey.”

An interesting aspect of the app is that it provides you with a "PK Score". The score is made of up two numbers. The first number will be based on your effort and the second number is the time. This score is meant to provide you with insight so that you know if you're working too hard, not hard enough, or just the perfect amount. The score makes the app very unique as it is more personal than the typical fitness tracker. The fact that the app is using actual biometric and biographic information helps to take it to that next level.

Now here is another layer of the app that just makes it even more exciting. The app has been founded by Bryan Clay who is an Olympic champion, as well as Ed Leonard, who is a technology executive. This marriage of minds has created a simply stunning and highly versatile offering that athletes are taking full advantage of.

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • The app is personal, tracking each person’s information
  • You are given a PK Score after each workout that sheds extra light on your effort
  • The app works in the background tracking all the activity information
  • This app can be used with a heart rate monitor for added details
  • There is a social network that you can share and get information from

Cons

  • There had been some minor bumps and issues, which seem to have been addressed now
  • There were some problems with the formulas being used and how accurate they were

Final Verdict

It’s hard to find that one-size fits all solution for those looking to track their activity, workouts, and training but the PK Fitness app for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone attempts to do just that. All-in-all, this one is a solid offering that is user-friendly, works seamlessly in the background, provides personalized information, and can be used by all levels of athletes. Of course, if you want to take full advantage of all this app has to offer, you’ll need to pair it with a compatible heart rate monitor.
