BodBot is a true digital personal trainer, creating workouts tailored to your goals, resources, physical abilities, desired difficulty and much more. Each workout is tailored down to the level of the individual exercises, and the plans adapt over time as you complete or miss sessions.
Just as a good personal trainer will personalize your workout plan, we create an individual program for you and adapt it as you progress. Limited range of motion in the shoulders? We can work to correct that. Weaker in the back than in the chest? We can address that. Hamstrings too tight? Want to develop the biceps or the glutes? Can only workout in a few windows during the week? BodBot can handle it all, and your workouts will reflect all of these needs. We're committed to providing you with the best possible training plan and the very best workouts. More than this, if you miss a workout, or if you decide to go hiking on a whim, we can integrate this new information and update your training plan accordingly. The plan lives and breathes with you and for you.
So what distinguishes a modern, science-based, intimately personalized training system? What does BodBot do - and why does this matter?
■ Personalization matters. If you broke your leg this morning, you probably shouldn’t be attempting heavy squats at night. Similarly, if your sleep has cratered for the past week, or if you suddenly come down with a fever, the previous trajectory of your fitness - along with last week’s view of this week’s best training plan - becomes obsolete. You need a recommendation that reflects your new circumstances.
■ Everyone has a different history: variations in posture, strength, cardiovascular fitness, range of motion, joint stability, joint mobility and much more. These variations matter. Rather than overloading a weak and unstable joint or hammering an already shortened and tight muscle, BodBot will work with you to improve performance and increase efficiency - through targeted fitness tests and objective assessments. This is not the hand-waving personalization of other fitness apps. This is modern, high quality physiology and kinesiology realized in intelligent training recommendations.
■ Accessibility matters - if you’re working out at home you should still be able to get a high-quality, targeted workout - not an arbitrary infinite loop of burpees, wall-squats and crunches. BodBot’s database of broad and deep exercise profiles, together with the sophisticated algorithms that run over the top of them, seamlessly handle changes in location and equipment. Similarly, schedules can run tight and can change - if your default Monday, Wednesday, Friday pattern is interrupted, or you suddenly have less time available than expected, BodBot will immediately adjust your training plan.

Ratings and Reviews
Aside from the nutrition portion of the app that I could not figure out how to use, this app is put together in a somewhat easy to use fashion.
That being said, in regards to the claim of being a pocket personal trainer, it is lacking.
The idea of having people take a fitness test and then the app adapting the workouts according to the answers is a great idea. After playing around with app for a couple weeks, it seemed to always randomly pick exercise with no regard to either the seeds of the fitness test answers or the clever biometric tracking—which would be great for avoiding overtraining muscle groups. The app had me doing the same workouts on consecutive days at times for no reason at all.
Ultimately, none of those unique features appeared to work correctly. After the app made me take my fitness tests and It said I failed on everything, it generated the same workout for me when I reported that I passed the fitness teats. I ended up doing my own research and changing workouts myself, rather than being able to trust any sort of comprehensive progression path that the app laid out due to the app’s randomness.
There are complete free apps that do the same thing as this app in the areas that seem to actually be useful. So even though I wanted to love this app and trust it would be worth paying for, sadly it isnt.

Hi schexter85, sincere apologies for any difficulty here. It sounds like something has gone wrong in settings. Can you send us an email at email@example.com with details? We'd love to get this straightened out for you.
Excellent concept, but needs refinement
After using the app for a few weeks now, I'm seeing that in my workout sessions, some exercises disappear mid-session. It wasn't until I forced closed the app and restarted it that I realized that I had 4 missed exercises for that one day. Other little glitches like the home/gym icon on the top of the workout session also disappears. When creating a custom food...even after inputting all the nutritional values, the"add" button doesn't do anything. I'm hoping these bugs will be fixed in future updates.
Some "good to have" features would be a barcode camera scanner to easily add foods not already in the food database.

Hi Gtello1013, thanks for sending! Can you send us a quick email at firstname.lastname@example.org with information on the exercise problem mid-session? Any context greatly appreciated. While gym/home button expected to disappear in certain circumstances, grateful for any information you can provide on what circumstances made it feel like a glitch. We're looking at the custom food issue right now and barcode scanner on the roadmap too :)
Promising. Very frustrating though.
My biggest frustrations with this app are in its lack of consistency and buggy watch app. I know they just put in a setting for workout consistency but it doesn’t seem to do anything. Instead, I end up doing a completely new workout with brand new exercises every time I use bodbot. This is no good for someone actually looking to improve themselves. Hell, it’s not even good for learning new exercises since you only get to do them once.
Ending workouts with the watch app works maybe half of the time? Which is super frustrating since my watch will think I’m still at the gym hours later.
I really love the idea of a personal trainer app that picks out exercises for you. It’s just that this one really feels like it’s in the “beta” phase.
