Getting back in shape has never been easy but this app sure helps.

After taking 5 years off from regular training and lifting. I found it difficult to jump into the swing of things until I started using the TrainHeroic app. I am becoming the best version of my gym self despite my new limitations. Thank you Morgan for helping make my transition back to working out fun and easy.

Easy and Fun!

Love how easy it is to track my workouts. EMOM timer is awesome. So encouraging to see accumulated weight and track progress! I’ve lifted over a million pounds since I started using TrainHeroic 2 years ago.

A must have

TrainHeroic is an amazing user friendly app. In addition, the whole system/platform itself is one that’s close to taking over the fitness world. I get immediate access to an huge selection of world class trainers and hard core workouts. I used to find the gym a bore (and didn’t know what or how to do anything!) until TrainHeroic stumbled into my life. Between the workouts, blogs, and leaderboard my lifestyle is the strongest and healthiest it has ever been.

Simplicity at its best

This app is simple, clean, and easy to use. It doesn’t distract me from my workout and it has everything I need. There have been a few times when I thought I had an idea for an improvement and then I looked a little closer and sure enough, the app already had that feature. I especially like the ability to switch between kilograms and freedom units on the fly.

Thanks for a great app
