[prMac.com] Lake Oswego, Oregon - Cronogenics today is pleased to introduce myFitness! 1.1 for iOS, their Health & Fitness app that acts as a virtual trainer, providing a customized, challenging, new exercise routine for every workout. myFitness! operates on the proven principles of muscle fatigue and muscle confusion. During the workout, the user moves quickly from one exercise to the next (maximizing cardiovascular benefits) and pushes them to fully fatigue their muscles during exercise for optimal results. The core of the app is the Workout Generator, providing the user with a unique workout every time. After choosing one to three body parts to exercise (e.g. abdominals, legs, chest, etc.), myFitness! creates a challenging workout by randomizing the exercises from its built-in Exercise Bank. Each workout lasts one hour to one hour and fifteen minutes. Complete instructions and animated photos are provided.
Designed by Board Certified MD, Robert Chisholm, myFitness! specifically addresses the four most common failings of exercise programs: workout burnout, sub-optimal results, improper technique, and poor tracking of progress. Workout burnout is a common syndrome among those who go to the gym regularly. Doing the same exercises in the same order over many months leads to boredom and lack of motivation. The Workout Generator in myFitness! prevents workout burnout by randomly generating a new exercise routine for each session. The user selects one, two, or three body areas they would like to work on, and the Workout Generator creates a unique workout taken from the large number of different exercises stored in the app's Exercise Bank.
Less than ideal results are common in workout programs, and individuals often report a "plateau effect," where they reach a particular level of development, and can then improve no further. Employing muscle fatigue and muscle confusion ensures optimal results by preventing the body from habituating to the relatively consistent demands of typical exercise programs. The muscle groups are continually challenged - forced to respond in a way they have not had a chance to become accustomed to.
Correct exercise technique is vital to good results and prevention of injuries. Though somewhat costly, a personal trainer can provide the feedback and expertise necessary to prevent bad habits and poor technique. myFitness! acts as a virtual trainer, providing clear instruction on both what to do and how to do it. Each exercise includes written directions and animated photos that clearly depict each step, plus the proper technique for executing each part of the exercise.
Keeping records during workouts is an inconvenient, though necessary, part of any exercise program. myFitness! has the advantage of the ergonomic iOS touch screen to enter and save the resistance (when appropriate) and number of repetitions for each exercise. The next time that specific exercise comes up, the user is prompted with the previous weight and reps. They are immediately motivated to surpass themselves.
