Best Gym App

I go to the gym 5-6 times a week and I like to track my workouts, I don't mainly stick to the same workout each week, so I just use my Notes App to track what I'm doing.

I enjoyed Full Fitness, iFitness which are the same app just got banned from the AppStore. One of those is still there and I have it, just don't use it.

I'm looking for a gym app that lets me just write out work outs, reps and sets and logs it some way or even easier, a gym app that is also out in the Mac AppStore which is ideally what I'd like.

Out of all the gym/fitness apps Ive used I definitely like JeFit the best. the UI is pretty basic but the customization is great for all levels.

I loved DailyBurn mostly for its great food nutrition tracker and calories burned tracker from exercises. I was not trying to lose weight, but it was great to see the amount of protien and other nutrients I was getting each day and the amount of calories taken in and burned. But the software was buggy, I would lose weeks of data for no reason, or have different data from the web or my iPhone. So I gave up.

I am using JeFit now. It is great from tracking exercies, rep and weight tracking and seeing on a graph your progress. It syncs cross platform and on the web, which is nice. Its a bit of a learning curve as it is not very intuative at first, but once you get the hang of it, you can input and track pretty quickly.

I created all my routines, with target sets and reps by day and then easily update my daily logs of my workouts and even keep notes on a day or exercise if I found on that day the weight was too light or too heavy, etc. BTW,I purchased the Pro version.

I use StrongLifts. They preach the low-rep heavy weight mentality so you may or may not subscribe to that.

Thank you everyone, I'll try them out.

Stronglifts can you only track the workouts shown?

Fitocracy

I can't recommend Fitocracy enough. I dropped DailyBurn for it and haven't looked back.

So far I'm enjoying JeFit. I waste time in the gym because I over due 30 seconds of resting, it helps me stay on it.

A few things I don't like though:
1. I like to change music, or text while my rest periods, and I noticed if I hit the power button during the count down (5 seconds), it'll stop.
2. I sometimes enter the wrong amount of double tap adding an extra set. I can't seem to find a way to edit them.

What I do like besides the timer is, I go off bodybuilding.com plans and they have majority of the exercises in the app that are needed for these plans. I also wish the iPad version was better improved, I hate looking at apps at 2x mode.
