I really liked the options this app had for pre defined workouts. It also has a pretty good selection of specific exercises organized by muscle group. You can track your workout but there doesn't seem to be a way to define your own workout ahead of time. The videos demonstrating the exercises are nice to have for an amateur. The reason for only two stars is the ads, so many ads, and they are not just a bar on the screen. The worst ones are video ads you cannot dismiss for 10s and stop my music.

Love it so far!!! I'm using the customizable workouts. It's great that all moves are categorized by body part. I'm new to weight lifting and the diagrams and videos help me know that I'm doing all of the moves correctly. Also entering in my information when the workout is over is super easy. I just paid for the subscription so we'll see how the other parts work. I thought having the option to pay $4.99 a month was really useful. I personally don't like paying for a whole year upfront.

I was perfectly content with using this app for years, then yesterday, they put up a paywall. I could no longer access my routines or stats until I subscribed. They offer a "free four day trial", during which you can cancel to avoid the monthly charge, as long as it's a day before the trial ends (or something like that). Well, I signed up last night and cancelled about 12 hours later, only to be told by Google that my subscription will be closed after the point where I will incur a fee. I don't mind the ads, I've happily used this app for years, but there is nothing that warrants a $5/month subscription. Edit: it appears I did NOT get charged post cancellation, yet at least. It is still disappointing to see greed take over such a great app. Uninstalling after 2+ years of regular use.
