Okay, so first maybe you are wondering about what is Freeletics?

Freeletics is a bodyweight only trend sport in the fashion of CrossFit. It was founded by Andrej Matijczak, Joshua Cornelius and Mehmet Yilmaz in 2012 in munich. Freeletics’ exercise programs are both for individuals or groups who complete daily workouts based on a mobile app-coach. There are 1.000.000 Freeletics-athletics worldwide.

So, like you can see, it’s a training app but a really good one. It’s based on the body weight only. No need for any kind of machines, so you can practice everywhere and this is my point. During my travel, sometimes I can’t find any BJJ or Judo gym. If I want to keep my body and my cardio sharp I need to continue some kind of training. Usually, I do some functional movements associate with yoga and running and it’s quite ok.

But since February I’m so focused on My Fighter Card project than I have really stop training correctly. The result is 7 kg more and my cardio gone.. I need to get back on the training process and for that I need motivation, programme & coaching and I get all that with Freeletics.

So, when you start with Freeletics you have to pass a serie of 3 exercises test based on your sports behaviors. The app asking you if you train 4 time a week or 1 time a month. And I have to confess that these three exercises kill me!

After the test, you get a training plan for every week with a first-week “adaptation” training.

All the exercises are super clear and come with super pro videos, explaining everything you need to know in details. Like you see in the screenshot, the app is super clear and super simple to use.

Now if you can’t running for example you can use the 2×2 option in every workout and transform all the exercises for a 2×2-meter area. It’s mean you can train in your living room if you wanted to.

Well, my point is that this app is the most professional I ever tried or seeing in the app store. The Freeletics team worked with scientists, doctors and athletes for creating this app and you can feel it. For me, it’s the best companion for a BJJ athlete with no time or money to spend in a fitness/CrossFit/Bodybuilding gym.

The pro:

  • Pro workouts
  • UI Design
  • Videos quality
  • No need for intruments

The con:

  • 35€ every 3 months
  • No real (human) coaching
  • The running option is to simple I still using Runtastic

And you, did you use an app for training as a complement of your BJJ regular sessions?
