When it comes to getting your body in tip-top shape it's all about proper training; however, just because we know training is important doesn't mean we know how to pick those perfect routines and exercises. The Pocket WOD app for your iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch has been designed to take the guesswork and confusion out of cross fit training by providing you with exercises. This app can be used at home or in the gym and is meant to be a pocket trainer that you can refer to and train with.
There is no need to be a professional when it comes to CrossFit training in order to use this app. Even beginners will be able to use it with success. The app provides you with workouts and exercises all of which will push and challenge you to be the best you can be. The app is based upon the CrossFit.com website and each day you are given a Workout of the Day (WOD) update. This means you're constantly getting new ideas to add to your routine.
The free version includes plenty of features but to access all the features you’ll need to upgrade to the full version as an in-app purchase for $2.99. The app scores an almost perfect five star rating with users loving just about everything this app offers. Users love the versatility of the app and the exercises they can find within it.
Training with the App
Of course the most important part of the app is what it offers. You'll find a massive library of WOD videos to work through so there is no shortage to choose from. The app offers such handy features as a countdown timer, an interval timer, a stopwatch, and a tabata timer. Many of these items you would usually need a separate app which means you are going back and forth. Whenever you complete a workout be sure to log it in your calendar so you can track your progress. What's great is that your data is then saved to the Cloud so you know it's always kept safe. The app also features an RSS Reader so you can add all your most favorite workout feeds to it.
I like that this app feels more complete than just a library of workouts. There is so much information here that really helps you on your way to attaining your personal goal, whatever it may be.
