My Experience with Centr
When you sign up to Centr you will be taken through a basic questionnaire about your lifestyle, goals and exercise history.
Centr then uses your responses to personalise your experience and demonstrating a clear and unmistakable level of care for their users and their experience that can be hard to find in a fitness app.
First up, the planner tab.
The planner tab acts as your head quarters when using the Centr.
Here you will be able to access your daily workouts, meal plans and a series of informative articles to help you on your way to your goals.
Next up, the programs tab.
Here you will be able to wade through the seemingly endless number of training programs that Centr have to offer.
From beginner muscle development programs, all the way through the advanced meditations. Ranging from a couple of days to a few months in duration.
We were extremely impressed by the level of detail that goes into the each Centr workout and program.
Each workout comes with a short blurb detailing what to expect (difficulty, duration, equipment and target muscle groups).
Once you get stuck into a workout you will be met by in depth instructions and video demonstrations combined with a number of reps, rest period and prescribed intensity.
We have not come across many other fitness apps that have gone into this much detail when creating a workouts and exercise programs.
The explore tab was designed to give you access to all the information and educational tools that Centr has to offer.
Helping you answer questions and improve your training, eating, lifestyle and more.
Allowing you to search for new workouts, recipes, meditation as well as blogs and educational information.
The content is simple, the recipes are easy to follow and the basic search function enables users to find the answers they are looking for.
Lastly, the shopping list tab.
The shopping list tab allows you to plan your entire diet, outlining exactly what you need for each meal and allowing you to add it to your shopping list with ease.
And if you have the need to spice up your meal plan you can venture back to the ‘Explore’ tab and search through the meal ideas and add then to your meal plan.
Not only are the recipes incredibly easy to follow, there are enough options to ensure you will never get bored.
This was one of our favourite tools we found on Centr.
Finding and preparing one healthy meal can be hard enough, let alone planning an entire diet.
Demonstrating a clear understanding of what barriers users struggle with on a daily basis and giving them a simple solution to help them overcome these obstacles.
What We Like About Centr
Incredibly Easy To Use
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.
The short questionnaire, the slick user interface and everything in between. Centr 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.
