Want to drop fat and gain muscle? BodBot is your personal trainer on Windows Phone 8

No, it’s not Fitness Month at Mobile Nations. But BodBot is a too cool of a fitness app to pass up. It’s one of those apps that doesn’t come around too often. It’s where a unique idea meets both good app design and performance. It’s also cross-platform, with apps for Android and iOS available in addition to a web presence. BodBot is part personal trainer and part nutritionist all rolled into one app. Let’s check it out.

Thinking of getting in shape? Not sure where to start? BodBot is a great app for that. If you’re already comfortable with creating a clean diet and tough workout, you might skip over BodBot. But if you’re just getting started or find yourself in a rut this app might work great.

When you download BodBot, you’ll be prompted to create an account and enter your goals. You start by entering your gender. Then you select what you want to do and what your goals are. For example, do you want to lose fat, gain muscle, lose fat & gain muscle, get strong, etc. Then you tell BodBot if you want to work out at home or in the gym. And you’ll select how hard you want to work out and how much you’ve exercised in the past. Do you want BodBot to plan everything out for you? Or do you want to pick your days and time.

After giving BodBot all this info, it will create workout plans that fit get your goals based off of all the variables you gave it. Depending on your goals, you’ll get different workouts every day. You’ll view the workouts, which consists of a variety of exercises. Those exercises all have specific reps and sets to aim for. You can adjust them if you think it’s too much or too little and enter the weights you did. BodBot will track this all for you. And if you’re not sure how to do it, BodBot offers detailed instructions for each movement.

You can also follow your progress online at www.bodbot.com. There you can also upgrade for $10 per month for access to advanced analytics and fitness tests. Although the basic tier will serve most of you just fine. It would be nice if this data could share to other fitness social networks like FitBit or MyFitnessPal, but I didn’t see a way to do that. If you find a way, let us know below.

BodBot is free for Windows Phone 8 handsets. You get basic features for free, but you can go to their website and get a little more. But you’ll probably be set with the free tier. Grab it in the Windows Phone Store, use the QR codes below, or swipe to the right in our app.
