Train with Jillian Michaels Review
I’m obsessed with fitness apps. It amazes me how far we have come in technology. Everything you could need to help you get and stay fit can now be in the palm of your hand. Now the problem we are faced with is a overwhelming choice of fitness apps and how to find the right app for our own fitness needs. This brings me to the Train with Jillian Michaels app available on the google play and the app store. This review will go over everything you need to know about the program and how it works before you shell out the cash for it.
What is the Train with Jillian Michaels app?
Simply put: its a personal training app that helps you workout and eat right so you can get in shape and lose fat. It’s expensive to get a personal trainer and a gym membership doesn’t provide you with much direction. Wouldn’t is be nice if our days where played out for us and we didn’t need to do any planning or guess work?
Thats what this fitness app is for. This app gives you the direction you need to stay focused on your health. We all know that losing weight and getting in shape requires the right diet and the right exercise. You can’t be successful with just one of those.
Jillian Michaels creates a solution that incorporated planned workouts and daily meal plans to help get you in the best shape of your life.
How does the Train with Jillian Michaels app work?
This app offers more than any other fitness app I’ve tried. There are two parts to this app that make it successful: the meal plans and the workouts. While those make up the core of the app, there are also great bonuses and amazing tracking tools. This app is a calorie tracker on steroids. It tracks all your nutritional information and really gives you a better understanding on your diet.
When you get the app you can select your fitness level as well as indicate which workout equipment you have so she can determine which exercises to include in your plan. Next you will set up your profile by answering general questions about your age, weight, and height. With this information you will see a custom workout plans and choose the one that fits your fitness goals the best.
Next you can choose a meal plan. The options are: Omnivore, Paleo, Vegan, Vegetarian, or Pescatarian. This is as far as you can get with the free vision of the app. To continue you will have to make a purchase.
Train with Jillian Michaels App Price
If you are not sure if this app is going to be right for you, the great news is that it comes with a free 7 day trial. This will give you some time to take the fitness app for a test run. If you are ready to start your customized workout and meal plan you have three buying options:
- $9.99 per month (7 Day Free Trial) - Total Yearly Cost: $120.00
- $24.99 per Quarter (7 Day Free Trial) - Total Yearly Cost: $100.00
- $89.99 per Year (7 Day Free Trial) - Best Value, you’re saving 25% per year
Choosing a payment plan will most likely depend on you and your fitness goals. If you have a lot of weight you want to lose you should go with the $89.99 yearly. This will give you enough time to lose weight safely and help you develop the habits you need to keep the weight off.
Otherwise I would go with the $24.99 quarterly option because if you want to get in shape it’s going to take you at least 2-3 months to really noticeable results. You can’t change your body a whole lot in just a month so the $24.99 option would make the most sense.
Whats included in the Train with Jillian Michaels App?
The two main parts of this app is the customized workout plan and the daily meal plan. Here is what you can expect from each:
Jillian give you hundreds of workouts and customized workout circuits that will get you breaking a sweat! I get really bored doing the same exercise over and over again with normal fitness apps, but thats not the case with this one. You’ll get a new workout circuit each day so you’re not stuck doing the same thing over and over again.
Workouts are also very easy to follow. Each one can be viewed on video so you can follow along and adjust your form based on what you see. Another cool feature is that workouts can be previewed before you start.
Not having equipment is no longer a excuse, the videos can be customized so that they require no equipment. If you do have equipment you can specific what you have and the workouts will change to include your equipment.
Workouts can also be customized according to workout level. If you are a beginner you can start with the beginner level workouts. I wanted a challenge and tried the advance level workouts and they were great! I really felt like I was being challenged.
I really enjoy how the workouts are set up in this app. I’ve been traveling lately and it’s been really great knowing that I have get my workouts in and not have to worry about space or equipment.
The Meal Plan
Like I’ve mentioned before, a meal plan is included in this app. Once you select your diet type the app will give you breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack ideas. It goes one step further and even gives you shopping list so you will always have the ingredients you need for the meal. Meal plans are even further customizable in that if you don’t like a recipe you can easily swap it out with something you like.
You can also go through the wide recipe database and explore new meal ideas for fun. The meals in the plan are super easy to make. You won’t be spending hours on prep work or cooking.
Most require minimal and very common and basic ingredients. You will have a recommended calorie intake and the meals they recommend all have calorie values attached so you don’t have to do any crazy calorie counting.
What I like about the fitness app:
- Variety of workout circuits
- Workouts are easy to follow and in video format
- Workouts are customizable based on equipment, fitness level and body goals
- You don’t need workout equipment to do the exercises
- Customizable meal plan
- You can swap out recipesCreates a shopping list for you
- Convenient and digital, like having a personal trainer in your pocket
- Advanced calorie and nutrient tracking
What I don’t like about the app:
- Little pricy - this fitness app is a little pricier than most fitness apps. However, for the quality and amount of content it does make sense to pay a premium price for such a great fitness tool
I think that this app is worth every penny! Looking through the reviews on the app store most people would agree with me. This app currently has a 4.7/5.0 rating based on about 100 reviews. Even though this app is a little pricer than most app it is still much cheaper than getting a personal trainer or gym membership. Give this app a try with the 7 day free trial and see if this is the app that could help you get back in shape!
