9 Tips to Get the Most Out of the YouFit Gyms App
Don’t get stuck using the app for just working out at home. There’s so much more you can do with it. Here’s how to get the most out of the YouFit Gyms App.
1. Place The App on Your Phone’s Home Screen
Out of sight is out of mind, they say. When your YouFit Gyms App is in a hidden folder on your phone or on the third page of your home screen, it would hardly occur to you to use it to work out at home.
So, drag the app right now to your home screen page, where you’ll see it every time you unlock your phone. Or better still, place it just beside your social media apps. Seeing the app when you want to log in to social media will subconsciously remind you of what to do (or not to do).
2. Turn on Push Notification Reminders
No more using ‘forgetfulness’ as an excuse. YouFit Gyms App push notifications will help you remember every scheduled workout, grocery shopping plan, and more. In fact, a randomized control trial study found that push notifications are effective in weight loss programs.
Push notifications will also enable you to learn about promotional offers and upcoming group fitness classes at YouFit Gyms. Also, imagine the satisfaction of getting a push notification telling you you’ve achieved your fitness goal for the day.
3. Set Micro Health & Fitness Goals
Break your overall fitness goal into small, achievable goals. For instance, if your goal is to lose 20 pounds, one of your micro-goals may be to perform a cardio exercise for 10 minutes daily. This will motivate you to use the app every day.
Moreover, setting micro-goals helps you hold yourself accountable. It also enables you to track your progress. You can set these goals with the assistance of your personal trainer, who you can chat with via the app.
4. Design Your Own Workout On Demand
Like most other fitness apps, you can work out at home with the YouFit Gyms App. When you can’t make it to the gym, you can access hundreds of pre-made virtual workout videos on YouFit On Demand.
However, you can get even more out of the app by designing your own custom workout routine. This enables you to add exercises you want and adjust the sets, reps and rest.
5. Track Your Progress
Are you working hard enough to achieve your fitness goals? The only way to know is to track them. Tracking your goals will keep you motivated and committed to reaching and surpassing your goals. It will also help you find weaknesses, so you can adjust accordingly.
The goal tracking feature on the YouFit Gyms App summarizes your progress in one place, so you can know exactly what you’ve achieved. You can track your body measurements and nutrition intake, as well as take progress photos.
6. Log Your Nutrition Intake Immediately
While the YouFit Gyms App can automatically log your workouts and physical activities, you need to log your nutrition intake yourself. Logging your nutrition intake will enable you to track your food habits to help you adjust your daily calories consumption.
Hence, to get the most of this YouFit Gyms App feature, you should log your nutrition intake immediately after you consume anything. Log the type and amount of food and drink you consume daily. This would make you more conscious about what you’re eating and drinking.
7. Book A Group Fitness Class
Tired of working out at home or alone at the gym? Want to attend a Zumba class at a YouFit Gym near you? With the YouFit Gyms App, you can book a fitness class ahead, before all the spots are taken.
YouFit Gyms is one of few gyms that offer several group fitness classes, including Yoga, Zumba, Total Sculpt, Cardio Kickbox, Les Mills Body Pump, and Spin classes. The group fitness will enable you to work out with like-minded people and boost your self-esteem.
8. Connect Your Fitness Wearables
Connecting your fitness wearables, such as Apple Watch and Fitbit, will enable you to collect and track vital body system data as you work out and perform other physical activities. This data includes your heart rate, blood pressure, steps, calories burned, and more.
For instance, if you go on a run at the park, your wearable can track the distance, time, and calories burned and automatically share the data with your YouFit Gyms Apps. You can also quickly receive real-time notifications from your YouFit Gyms App on your wearable.
9. Interact with Professionals in Real-Time
One of the key reasons to join a gym is the availability of professional trainers to guide you. However, you can get the same benefit with the YouFit Gyms App – although not 100% replicated, as physical interaction is always better.
On the YouFit Gyms App, you can communicate with your trainer in-real time and receive guidance that will help you achieve your goals. You’ll also have real-time access to a certified nutritionist who can help with your diet plans.
