  • Pick from a number of live, on-demand and upcoming classes that range from walking to HIIT, kickboxing, yoga and stretching.
  • Users enter food preferences and allergies for a custom meal plan.
  • Meal plans are generally balanced for macronutrients.
  • Easily remove, replace and log meals or add items you eat from the Openfit nutrition database.
  • Includes an assessment upon starting to determine what you want to achieve from using the app.
  • Includes non-binary language to accommodate people from all backgrounds.
  • Option to turn on notifications and reminders for upcoming classes.
  • Includes a complete tutorial tour on using the app.
  • Includes a free seven-day trial.

Cons

  • Promises to show you exactly what to eat to get the results you want.
  • Must share a phone number to access real-time workouts with trainers.
