BodBot Offers Free, Personalised Exercise Plans

Web/iOS/Android: Web app BodBot may still be in alpha stage, but it’s already an excellent service that can help you build a custom daily workout plan. It comes complete with exercises catered to your personal fitness goals and desired activity level.

The Tekzilla video above walks you through the basics of the service. BodBot starts off by asking about your gender, current activity level, desired impact level and the reasons why you’re working out. From there, it will show you typical exercises that match up with the goals you have provided, and it offers up an exercise plan for the next few days.

You will then have to sign up (it’s completely free) to continue to build out your plan, use the calendar, and to add other data like your starting weight, desired weight and any equipment you have access to. All of that information is used to build better workout plans for you. You will also get emails with details of your daily workout every morning, along with a little encouragement. Install the BodBot app for Android or iPhone to use the service on your phone.

There is a social component to BodBot, but it’s definitely not its strong suit. The same is true for its tracking features, although you can log your weight and body fat percentage over time. Honestly, there are better services for both of those.

Creating your workout plans and keeping track of your workouts are all free at BodBot, you can sign up for a BodBot Plus account for $US10 per month to unlock the tracking tools and fitness tests to further personalise your workouts. Give it a shot and build your exercise plan for free, then decide if you need the additional features.
