What Training Program Should I Do? | Best Weightlifting App to Track Workouts for Beginners

“How do I lift weights?”

It sounds like a silly question. You just pick up a heavy object, hoist it, and repeat, right?

But it’s not a silly question at all. There are so many options that it gets overwhelming for people looking to break into weightlifting. What machine do you use? Do you need a machine? Are free weights better?

Your buddies have all got their own opinions. “My setup is better than the other one because blah blah blah.” They might ask what you want to achieve, and when you say you want to get stronger, they’ll give you some exercise to start. But why? Is that the best one for you?

So you look for more educated help. Google, YouTube, and gyms all offer ideas for what fitness program you should do. But where do you jump in? How do you know they’re giving you what you need?

This is my job. I help clients who have never lifted a weight before in their life. I also help pros who’ve been at this for a decade or more. But if you’re just beginning, you need someone who guides you through every fact you need to know. And you need to understand what’s going to help you get your goals met as quickly and safely as possible.

That’s why my personal coaching always starts with a detailed interview. We discuss your nutrition, exercise, and health goals. We take a non-judgmental look at where your body is now so we know what you need to do to get stronger for your whole life. It’s a fully customized program built around your needs and goals.

One useful tool for this process is my custom fitness app. I’ve included five new fitness programs on my app that help beginners get used to lifting, start building muscle, and establish a sustainable routine that won’t burn you out and make you want to quit after a week. 

Once you’re ready to step up your workouts, my app will progress with you. I’ve loaded about forty programs inside my app subscription, which is also self-serve. You can get that app even if you aren’t ready to start personal training with me. Wherever you are in your fitness journey, I’m ready to meet you there. It’s all about you.

The app is easy to use and cuts through all the beginner confusion. I’ve worked hard to make sure anyone can pick up this system at any level and figure out exactly what they need.

But let’s say you’re still struggling. You see the range of programs and aren’t sure what’s going to get the job done. Which one should you pick?

Just ask me.

No, seriously. Even if we aren’t working together on training, you can just ask. If you reach out to me and don’t know what to do, ask me.

I’ll probably ask if you’ve ever trained before. I need to know where you’re at in your learning. If not, then I’ll encourage you to try twelve weeks of online training with me so you can understand your nutrition and exercise and figure out your personal biology. Three months to set you up for the rest of your life.

If weight loss is your goal, I’ll build you a routine that will help accomplish that. Nothing worse than pouring time, money, and sweat into an exercise program that loses muscle, puts on weight, and leaves you hurt. A lot of workouts can do that to you. Get with me for twelve weeks and learn everything you need to know.

After those twelve weeks, you can jump back into the app on your own. I won’t hold your hand if you’re looking to push yourself solo. And the app has all the tools you need to make your journey work for you. You’ve got twelve weeks of training that gives you the fundamentals you’ll need to achieve success even if you never speak to me again. Your life will be permanently better with that knowledge.

So a year goes by, you’ve learned the basics, and you’re working your own routine. You’re feeling much stronger and leaner. But you hit a plateau. Which program should you do next? Get back with me and let’s talk about what you need. We can look at the data you’ve tracked in the app and see your entire progress from the beginning. We find your next step together. Then you’re off and running again.

I’m here when you need me, but I’m not harassing you at home to get back into training. And I’m not milking you for endless trainer fees you don’t need.

That’s one major problem I’ve seen with other trainers. They don’t leave you alone because their goal is to make money, not to help you achieve your goals. If you get too healthy you won’t need them. So they don’t go all out and give you the tools you need to make it work on your own. And if you ask them to step back and give you some time to do your own thing, they can be real jerks. “Good luck meeting your goals without me.” It’s horrible.

Online coaches or whatever other program out there can leave you discouraged, furthering shame and self-disappointment. You’ll feel like a failure. A fat failure. And you don’t need that.

I will never do that to you. I’m here for what you need. I step back when you’ve got it. My app can help you achieve a lifetime of fitness without needing someone to hold your hand. And there’s no guilt at any time. It’s 100 percent about what you need.

Ready to take the first step to a lifetime of fitness? Download my app and get started. The rest of your life will be so much better.
