Simplest Workout Tracker

The humane exercise log

Most workout trackers are demanding. They require you to enter a lot of information just to track your progress and many shame you if you do not work out regularly. Simplest Workout Tracker has another philosophy: If you've exercised, that's great! If not, there's always another day.

Simplest Workout Tracker tracks only that you've been working out, not the tiny minutiae of each exercise. With workout artificial intelligence (AI) the app will even suggest the workout based on your routine, no typing necessary.

Set a yearly goal and reach it by logging each workout in its simplest form: what did you do? Football, 5K run, yoga or a strength routine? Awesome! Fill each day with an activity and get in shape without the pressures of perfection.
