What Makes JustFit Better Than Fitness Apps?

Justine an online vegan personal trainer

In our smartphone-dominated world, there’s an app for everything. This of course also includes fitness and personal trainer apps.

I get why they’re super popular with the get fit crowd. They’re convenient! They have a huge variety of workouts on demand. They monitor your heart. Count your calories. Tell you how many miles you ran. How many reps you nailed. 

All from your phone!

If you’re looking for a fitness app, you have many to choose from: My Fitness Pal, Centr, FitOn, Hot5, 8fit, FitStar, Shred, Keelo, Nike Training Club. The list is endless!

But can a fitness app really replace a real life fitness trainer? 

No. Not.at.all.

I’m a certified vegan personal trainer and I started JustFit for people who want to get fit and healthy through the power of plants.

To do this, you don’t need a fancy high-priced fitness app.

Here’s what a real-life vegan personal trainer can offer you that a digital app just can’t:

A friendly face instead of a digital interface.

Join me at JustFit and instead of a fitness app’s digital interface, you’ll have my friendly face cheering you on, as your very own vegan personal fitness trainer. I’ll be there to listen to you, give you personalized tips, and customized feedback. Just for you.

I’ll be coming at you live – and not pre-recorded!

You’ll be interacting with a living and breathing person. I’ll talk to you, but also listen carefully to your needs, your goals, your strengths, your weaknesses, your dreams.

A fitness app like My Fitness Pal or FitOn can’t give you the full 3D experience that a personal trainer can. Nothing beats face-to-face interaction.

A personalized fitness program based on your individual needs. 

Together we can discuss your fitness goals and work out an ideal fitness program expertly tailored to your needs. We’ll tweak workouts to make sure they’re suitable for you, based on your own strengths and weaknesses. I’ll suggest personalized adaptations that Hot5 or FitStar simply can’t provide.

Ever try to keep an eye on pre-recorded workout on a small screen? That in itself could be a bigger challenge than the actual workout! Especially when the audio tells you to lie face-down on the floor…

Then what??

Can Shred or Keelo keep a check on your form? Adjust a workout for your shoulder problem? Will it notice that one of your arms has a more limited range of motion than the other?

The answer is No.

Also, there’s the risk that a pre-recorded workout may take you way out of your comfort zone and expose you to the risk of injury.

Do you have a bad back or sensitive knees? I’ll demonstrate how you can stretch pre- and post-workout, and safely adapt exercises to avoid getting hurt. 

With your certified real-life vegan fitness coach guiding you through each step, you’ll be in safe hands. When I give you personalized feedback, I’ll use your name. I’ll keep an eye on your form. Show you how to make adjustments for your shoulder problem or bad back. 

I’ll ultimately help you give your best while avoiding injury. 

The motivation to keep going.

If you’re looking to use an app to achieve your fitness goals, you need self-motivation. 

Lots of it!

We know what eventually happens with apps. Nike Training Club is fun on the first day. Hey, you may even last a week. But you get tired of working out alone. Or the novelty of tapping and swiping just wears off.

If you’re having an off day, or if you’re just not in the mood, you can take the easy way out.

Just turn off the app!

But I won’t let you off the hook so easily. You can’t turn off your personal trainer. I’ll give you that extra little push to keep going. Once you wind up your workout and are glowing with that happy post-workout buzz, you’ll thank me. 

Because Nike Training Club won’t do that!

A push to the next level.

Fitness apps give you a variety of workouts to choose from. Everyone loves variety. Variety gives you a sense of added-value. You are paying a pretty penny for Centr or 8fit every month after all. 

But guess what? You’ll inevitably keep choosing the workouts you like, or the ones you find easy to do. You may try something different every once in a while to mix it up, but ultimately you’ll go back to the same workouts again and again. There’s comfort in familiarity.

But that won’t make you fit or help you reach your goals. You need to be challenged. You need to move outside your comfort zone if you want to see results. 

A real-life personal trainer will help you get to the next level.

Customization, just for you.

Maybe this has happened to you… You’re feeling energetic, confident, in full-form. So you pick up your phone, open up Workout Trainer, and tap “HIIT workouts” and off you go…

But minutes into the “Ultimate Fat-Frying Tabata Workout”, you think: “Sh*t! Hell no!” 

But it’s too late! You can’t tell the app you want to take things down a notch or two. Or three. 

Or maybe you’ve experienced the opposite scenario. The workout you chose seems lame and you want to ramp things up a level and increase the intensity. But you’ll have to stop, choose another option, start again…

Unlike an app, your personal trainer can adapt your workout on the spot. No pausing, fumbling, or swiping required.

Support for your vegan lifestyle.

Many fitness apps also include sample meal plans, and a few like Centr even offer vegan options. But it’s very hard to find one that’s tweaked specifically for plant-based fitness folks like us. This means vegans feel like their specific needs are not being met. 

Like you, I’m vegan. I’m on the same page as you and I know what plant-powered fitness is all about. I can help you come up with a customized meal plan that will cover your protein and nutrient needs based on your health and fitness goals. 

Rather than choosing from Centr’s limited library of plant-based recipes, we’ll come up with the perfect vegan meal plan to optimally fuel your body and turbo charge your fitness levels.

Or if veganism is new for you and you’d like to transition to a plant-based diet, I’ll guide you each step of the way.
