GAIN believes that everyone should have a personal trainer.
The GAIN Group & Personal Training app connects you with real personal trainers for custom guided workouts and enables you to stay connected and accountable 24/7. GAIN allows you automatically share important progress measurements to your trainer if you choose to allow GAIN to access your Health data (via the Health app).
2 ways to train:
1.) PERSONAL TRAINING: If you already have a 1:1 in-person trainer, GAIN provides the mobile app extension. Your trainer sends personalized workouts in the app and holds you accountable with messaging and notifications. Great for when you travel or want work out more often than you can afford to meet with your trainer.
2.) GROUP TRAINING (Beta): If you can’t afford a personal trainer, or don’t have time to find and meet one IRL, you can now join a GAIN Training Group. These groups are led by real fitness pros and pack the same 1-2 combo of custom workout plans and 24/7 connection and support. Group messaging and notifications unlock the motivation, accountability and support you can only get from joining a community of real people like you.
BEST USER EXPERIENCE:
Our award-winning app workout experience coaches you through each exercise, rep, and rest with HD motion GIF images, voice commands, and motivational cues spoken by real personal trainers. Works well with or without headphones, in the gym or at home. The audio is comprehensive enough to guide your entire workout with audio-only. Also integrates seamlessly with any music player of your choice.
MOST CUSTOMIZED & VARIED WORKOUTS:
Trainers often build workouts and programs from scratch to their exacting specifications. No two workouts are the same. Trainers pull from our comprehensive exercise library of more than 1,700 exercises, mashing up exercises from varied training approaches, including bodybuilding, Cross Fit, yoga, functional strength training, Pilates, HIIT, bootcamp, gymnastics, calisthenics, rehab exercises, and more.
TERMS & PRICING:
The Group Training feature is currently in Beta, and we are not charging anything for it yet. The Personal Training version should be discussed and negotiated directly with your personal trainer.
Group Training (Beta) - Join a training group of like-minded individuals who are struggling through the same imperfect fitness journey as you. Groups follow the same trainer’s program and share workout progress in real time. Group messaging and notifications unlock motivation, accountability and support that comes from joining a community of real people like you.

Best bang for your buck
I can't believe how much progress I have made since starting with my GAIN trainer. We met at my local gym a few weeks ago and ever since I have been getting daily workouts from her sent to my phone through the GAIN app. I am training for my second half-marathon and knew I needed something a little more diverse to assist in my workout routine, in addition to someone there to motivate me (aside from my workout partner) and hold me accountable for my workouts. In the past I have had a personal trainer but realized how expensive that got--plus, who wants someone standing over them and counting their push ups for them! With the Hybrid Personal Training from GAIN, I can workout where I want and when I want while having the luxury of the personal trainer to prescribe me workouts to help me get a PR in my half-marathon! Great app overall, highly recommend for anyone who want to hit a goal. Seems a little pricey, but in comparison to a traditional personal trainer..not so much.
Personal Training of the Future
I have been working with my trainer for three months now. I LOVE the service. I used to work with a personal trainer that charged $120/session. GAIN Fitness charges only a little more than that, BUT I get workouts personalized for me, from my trainer, four times/ week. Essentially It costs me the same as meeting with my old trainer for an hour as it does now when I get around 20 workouts/ week from my trainer to do over the app, in addition to meeting her in-person.
Perfect for anyone that doesn't want to pay $120+ for a trainer do be with them in-person but still wants the structure and quality that a trainer provides. Also great for me because I don't have time to schedule training sessions but it is a service I appreciate and need.
Really innovative service--highly recommend.
Great concept, horrid execution
I've been using the Gain Fitness app with my personal trainer for about 9 months. When it works, it's amazing, because I get a custom built workout that I can do on my own and the workout guidance, voice-overs and exercise videos are great. The problem is that the app is horribly buggy. About 25% of the time, I can't get my workout due to some technical problem with the app. It also fails 75% of time to allow me to give post-workout feedback to my trainer. I've reported this bug repeatedly, but it hasn't been fixed in MONTHS. That's the final problem - no customer service and no responsiveness from the company. If there were another option like this, I'd switch in a heartbeat to eliminate all the frustration.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
