Top iPhone fitness apps (screenshots)
3. GymGoal ABC
Pros: The free version offers 280 exercises with animations, and you can add your own images to any exercise; includes a variety of calculators, such as for target heart rate, BMI, BMR, and body fat percentage; an integrated body map of muscles lets you hone in on the specific area you would like to work and provides exercises designed for that muscle group.
Cons: As the name suggests, all the workouts are geared for use in a gym, with all the equipment you would find therein; there are very few workout routines and no cardio offerings; graphical interface seems dated.
Good for: Gym newbies who are looking for proper instruction on how to lift and use gym equipment without injury, or cardio fiends who want to add specified muscle toning to their routines. If you want to record and track workouts, a full version is available for $2.99.
