What to Try Now: Spitfire Athlete

This free iOS app provides a solid primer on strength training for women.


Every exercise is explained with a step-by-step photo guide you can reference while you’re on the gym floor. And the pictures feature real-person female athletes rather than fashion models, which is great for both body-positive motivation and technical accuracy.

The beginner’s workouts are simple, so you don’t have to be overly concerned about form details; as you gain confidence, they get more complex, intensifying to help you build all-over body strength. Some exercise plans require only your body weight, while others work with free weights and machines, so there’s something for everyone.

The app also includes timers to guide you through supersets and intervals. www.spitfireathlete.com
