Taking his experience training for these big time rolls to launch Centr – Chris Hemworth’s workouts and meal plans. Exercise and nutrition plans tailored by Chris Hemsworth and his personal team.
We downloaded the app, researched the brand and got stuck into the workouts and will today be providing an in depth review of everything Centr by Chris Hemsworth has to offer so you can decipher whether it’s the right purchase for you.
Let’s dive in.
Centr is a holistic, personalized digital health and fitness app founded and curated by Australian movie star Chris Hemsworth and his personal team in in 2019.
Hemsworth handpicked his team of experts from around the world to offer the public daily workouts, meal plans, meditation and access to their community. Centr sported over one hundred thousand downloads in it’s opening week, with over 1.4 million downloads in the first year.
At it’s core, Centr is about training hard, eating right and living well. The three ingredients to a happy and healthy life.
My Experience with Centr App
When you sign up to the Centr app you will be asked a series of basic questions:
- Email address
- Goal (Lose weight, Build muscle. Get Fit & Toned)
- Preferred Payment Plan (After your 7-Day Free Trial)
- Current Fitness Level
- Dietary Restrictions
- Preferred Units of Measurement (Metric or Imperial)
These simple questions allow the Centr app to give you a personalized Centr experience based on your goals and lifestyle. Taking the time to understand your journey and welcoming you into the Centr community.
The planner tab acts as your homepage, where you will find all your daily workouts, meal plans and a series of informative articles to help you on your way to your goals.
The programs tab will allow you to wade through the endless number of training regimes that Centr have to offer. From beginner muscle development programs all the way through the advanced meditations and wellness ranging from just a few days to several months in duration.
In the explore tab, you can use the simple search function to wade through the four main pillars that the Centr brand is built on.
Allowing you to search for new workouts, recipes, meditation as well as blogs and educational information.
The shopping list was by far my favourite section of the Centr experience.
After all they say that good nutrition is 90% of health and fitness.
Finding and preparing one healthy meal is hard enough, let alone planning an entire diet.
Using the Centr shopping list you can use the plus button in the top right hand corner to add different groceries to your list.
Or by venturing back to the “Explore’ tab and clicking on meals or snacks you can search through Centr’s range of meal ideas and with the click of a button you can adjust the number of serving sizes and add all the ingredients to your shopping list.
This small amount of foresight shows a clear understanding of what everyday people struggle with when trying to improve their health and fitness, and goes a long way to helping them overcome these barriers and a huge bonus to the Centr experience.
The settings tab is a easy section manage space to manage your account, profile settings and even cancel your subscription.
What We Like About Centr
Incredibly Easy To Use
From the moment you log into the Centr app for the first time it feels like you are being taken on a small journey to being a healthier person. From the short questionnaire to the slick user interface, the Centr app has a certain warmth to it that you just don’t get with some fitness apps.
So many fitness applications are just a hub of information that you are made to wade through and decipher for yourself how to get the most out of the service. Centr offer a few basic questions to get a general idea of your lifestyle but offer a much more tailored fitness experience.
High Level Programming
The exercise programming used in Centr fitness app is among some of the best we have seen. The programs are clearly outlined with a purpose, and details around the program. So many different fitness apps have thousands of one off exercise videos, but Centr walks you through an in depth workout program like you are getting trained by a real personal trainer.
Centr Has Something For Everyone
The team at Centr has done an excellent job at catering to people of all different backgrounds, fitness levels and goals. Many fitness apps nail one clear goal, Pilates, flexibility, core strength. However, the team at Centr has listed different programs for people who are trying to tone up, increase their muscle mass at every level.
Shopping List Function
The shopping list function is one of my favourite app features I have seen while scouring the internet for best fitness apps on the market. Centr allows you to create and modify a specified meal plan with ease breaking down the barriers of confusion and time allowowing users to nail their diet once and for all. The Centr shopping list is a real winner.
May Be Overwhelming
Between the workout videos and pictures of beautiful people it is possible that the Centr app might be a little bit overwhelming for people who are just beginning their fitness journey.
Limited Search Function
Centr offer a wide range of workouts, meal plans and educational pieces. However, their limited search function made it difficult to find exactly what you were after.
Limited Guidance for Beginners
Centr offers an amazing level of information and education. However, many people starting their fitness journey do not know what information is relevant to them. A short course of recommended blogs or mini course with basic information about how to take the first few steps on your fitness journey would really help beginners get the most out of everything Centr has to offer.
