As my workout and health needs have changed, so has the Bot. It interfaces with my other apps (FitBit, Google Fit) and adapts on the fly based on how I feel or what exercises I add or skip. It even "pesters" me when I miss a workout to get back in the groove. I travel a lot, so having "gym" (i.e. travel) and "home" equipment lists lets me mix and match exercises based on where I am and what I have access to. Devs got back to me when I made suggestions and later even implemented some. Once I set it up, and tweak it as needed, I don't have to think about anything but whether to get up or stay in bed. Well done!

It's a great app in my opinion. One thing I always struggle with when I work out is getting bored. I'm in decent shape but I want to gain some more weight and the app helps me with knowing what exercises to do next and how many of each to do. Has a cool feature where you say how easy an exercise was and depending on your reply they will either lower, raise or maintain the same amount of reps in a set. If you keep raising it eventually they add a harder workout. Great app in my opinion!

After many web searches I found and tried several workout apps. I wanted an app that allowed me to set up workouts that use the equipment I have (elliptical, dumbbells, resistance bands). Bodbot is the one I keep coming back to because of its effectiveness, comprehensiveness and ease of use -- with the equipment I have. I highly recommend Bodbot.

It's pretty good, I like having a lot of options like picking what joints you don't want active during that particular training session if your knees or wrists etc are still sore from some other activity, I like how it can be tailored specifically and takes some of the guess work out of your workouts. ( Sometimes it's hard to remember how much you did of a specific exercise from a few weeks ago) There are some QoL improvements and minor adjustments I'd like to see (ie Bosu Ball anyone?)

Just starting out with getting some strength training in (usually just cardio, running and biking) and figured I'd give these guys a try. So far, very impressed. The fact that it asks after each set what you felt for a difficulty is and adjusting on the fly is awesome. Only thing I wish was in there is telling the app how much weight you had used for that set, showing how your progression is, for example "150 lbs for squats this time" and now I know to try for 160! Otherwise, amazing so far!

BodBot is your own digital personal trainer, providing AI workouts customized to your goals, equipment, physical abilities, desired difficulty and much more. BodBot provides you with step-by-step guidance for each exercise and progression, and your plan adapts over time as you complete or miss sessions.

Just as a good personal trainer will personalize your workout plan, BodBot creates 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.
■ While changes are rarely this dramatic, a missed workout, an unexpected hike, a bout of insomnia or any of life’s other curveballs should not derail you from your training plan or your goals. BodBot can and will handle these changes.
■ People naturally progress at different speeds. Rather than breaking yourself on the yoke of a program that’s either too slow or too fast - too inefficient or wildly risky - it is possible to respond to your rate of progress and adapt the training to reflect your own unique work capacity. BodBot will work with you to set the best pace and rate of progression. By contrast, most apps today either use absolutely no system of progression, or static fixed percentage increments.
■ 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.
■ Specificity matters - beating about the knees with a tire iron will certainly provoke soreness and perhaps even work up a sweat - but it will not generate favorable improvements in performance (assuming self-assault does not become the new fad) or body composition and certainly not wellness. It’s the type of stimulus, not the magnitude of pain, that dictates results - BodBot will use each and every drop of sweat to help you achieve the results you want.
