Navy SEALs are known as being some of the fittest and enduring people on the planet, and with this very cool iPad and iPhone workout app you can learn how to muster that same grit and gusto to train just how the elite do it.
I really like the idea behind this fitness app, and it definitely appeals to me far more so than the majority of options for a health app that I review in the Health & Fitness category of the App Store because of the more rugged and intense nature of the activities. This is not your traditional gym app.
There are, in my humble opinion, way too many apps that are geared towards making things as quick and easy as possible for people (I’ve lost count of the number of “7 minute workout” apps I’ve reviewed).
Navy SEAL Fitness, on the other hand is designed to get you training like some of the most truly elite individuals in the world, working on all kinds of aspects of your performance to be the very best you can be, rather than simply looking for a shortcut or an easy way out.
Learn How to Be Your Best
This app covers an almost limitless number of topics pertaining to performance and the body itself, covering everything from aerobic and anaerobic work to weightlifting techniques and even active recovery.
There is loads of information encompassing many areas of exercise physiology and the kind of bodily systems and structures that are brought into play by different forms of exercise, so you can really build an understanding of how to push yourself harder for longer.
I really like this approach because it takes a more respectful stance towards the user like, “here is why we’re doing x, y, z,” instead of just throwing out a list of commands for you to blindly follow, doing the same thing every day.
Learn all about various aspects of exercise physiology
Learn about aerobic and anaerobic exercise and how they affect the body differently
Learn weightlifting techniques, endurance techniques, plyometrics, calisthenics, and so on
Take your fitness to unprecedented levels by training like the elite
Full explanations of just about everything included so that you know exactly what you’re doing and why you’re doing it
There is nothing negative to say about this app
There is no denying that Navy SEALs are some of the fittest people in the world, so it definitely makes sense to me to try to emulate what they do so that you too can take your own health and fitness to brand new heights.
Navy SEALs Fitness is one of the best iPhone and iPad apps of its kind that I’ve come across lately, and I’ll definitely be putting myself through some of the material for sure!
