How to Keep Your Workouts Consistent with a Workout Scheduler

workout scheduler

By going to the gym consistently, you can really reap the benefits of each session, both mentally and physically. In fact, consistency is one of the most important factors in your fitness journey. It will help you hit your fitness goals faster while keeping your motivation and endurance high. However, we know that it can be difficult keeping to a regular routine. Luckily, we have one easy solution to help with this – a workout scheduler.

Why You Need Consistent Workouts

Just think about any skill that you wish to develop such as learning how to play an instrument or similar. How often do you practice? How often should you practice?

You won’t get very far if you only pick up the guitar and head to your lessons irregularly. There is a common misconception that you can try to catch up on lost time. For example, if you haven’t had a lesson in 3 months and try to catch up by going 5 days in a row. The sporadic sessions won’t help you get any better and in fact, can be detrimental to your progress.

The same goes for your fitness goals. You need to work out consistently to achieve your long term results. Without putting in the effort, you will take much longer to hit your fitness goals. This is because your training, endurance and motivation will constantly fluctuate. Ultimately, this will be your downfall and you will not get the results you want, at least not in a reasonable time frame.

You will not be able to use the skills or improvements you made in your previous session because by then, you may have lost that progress you gained by your next workout. With consistent workouts, this will be an obstacle that you can avoid. You will be able to continuously improve and add to your next session to hit your fitness goals and make valuable progress. This will maximize your results.

Another reason why you need consistent workouts is that it will help you plan efficient workouts. A workout scheduler will tell you what to do each session. This eliminates the problem of just randomly heading to the gym one day and doing whatever comes to your mind.

This means that every workout actually contributes to you hitting your fitness goals. You won’t be just working out for the sake of working out. Not only will this assist you in keeping to a regular fitness schedule but you will be making real progress. Each workout will have a purpose.

Each workout will have a purpose.

How to Keep Your Workouts Consistent Using a Workout Scheduler

Consistent workouts help you to establish a routine, and a workout scheduler is what helps you to do this. You will have a higher chance of sticking to this habitual activity by having regular session penciled into your everyday life.

A workout scheduler can help you keep disciplined with your fitness. Make time to fit in your workouts as if they were an important meeting appointment in your calendar. Eventually, by making the effort to stick to your workouts regularly, it will become a habit in your lifestyle and you will have developed this discipline to make sure that you go.

Another important aspect on how to keep your workouts consistent is to also schedule in rest days. These rest days will help to give your body enough time to recover to get back to your next session completely motivated and energized.

Personalize your own exercises that suit your fitness goals and help you reach them with a workout scheduler. With a customizable gym workout planner, you can choose the exercises that best suit your needs. As it is specific to you, you can also adjust the workouts as necessary. This will factor in helping you keep to consistent workouts because it will assist in planning workouts that you can regularly stick to.

Consistency is an important factor in fitness. By keeping to regular sessions, you will be able to uphold your high endurance and motivation. It may take some time to get into that habitual routine but once you do, with the help of a workout scheduler, you will be on “auto-pilot” in which your workouts will become an integral part of your life, helping you make valuable progress every time.

Jefit is a gym workout app that helps all gym goers and athletes plan and stick to their workouts on a regular basis. With a workout scheduler and customizable gym workout planner like Jefit on your side, you will be able to keep to your workouts consistently that will take you one step closer to hitting your fitness goals.

Android Update Version 6.0321 Released!

Hello All,

We’re thrilled to announce that we’ve updated our Android Application.  This is a MAJOR update that contains a complete re-design to the UI with the new slider functionality, brand new features, changes and adjustments to current features, bug fixes, performance enhancements and much more.

With this update for the Android, we are changing up things with how the application functions and how a user navigates through each page. We feel that with these new UI and navigational changes we have made in this update, that it is a major step forward for JEFIT and future updates to come.

What’s New

1.) NEW – User Interface and Navigational Changes

blank

– In this new update we are completely changing up the navigation for JEFIT, removing the landing page and using a slider-navigational system.  As soon as you open up the application, you will be re-directed to the NEW “Training Snapshot” page where you are able to view your last few weeks worth of training, to navigate to another page, you will click on the JEFIT Icon at the top left hand corner of the screen to initiate the slider function.

From here you will easily able to navigate through each of the main pages of JEFIT from starting your workout routine, finding a workout routine, browsing the exercise database, viewing your trainings, viewing your NEW training reports and more.

On each page within the application you will notice a header for each page, by sliding the page either to the left or right, you will be able to navigate through each of the different slides/pages within each section that you select. As you can see in the image below, the header for this section is called “My-Routines”, by sliding the application the application to the left you will be able to access the “Download Routines” page.

blank

Having this new sliding features makes it easier to navigate throughout the application, also it helps reduce the amount of clicking to get to a specific page as it was in the previous iteration of the application as you had to click multiple times just to access the routine manager page or to download more routines. Now all you have to do is open up the main left panel slider, click on find routines, and then slide through either your routine manager or download more routines to access various pages.

We feel that the slider option opens up more for us to make JEFIT, the pages and functionalities of our program easily accessible for even the newest of users, especially as we continue to add in new features with future updates to come.

2.) NEW – 30 Day Training Snapshot

blank

– The NEW “Training Snapshot” page is now the new landing/home page for your JEFIT experience. When loading up the application you will be brought to this newest page where you will be able to view the last few weeks of training that you have performed using JEFIT.

On this page you will be able to view the total weight that you have lifted over the past 2 weeks time along with your “Bodypart Breakdown”, assessing how you split up your training and which muscle group has been delegated time during your workouts.

3) NEW – ELITE Members Have Access To Account and Features

blank

– As we have most recently released our Elite Membership, with this latest update, those who currently have an Elite Membership with JEFIT will have access to their Elite Accounts and features within the JEFIT Application.

By logging into your account, you will notice on the NEW Left Slider Panel, your username along with a notification to represent whether you have a Basic, Pro or Elite Membership with JEFIT.

4.) NEW – ELITE ONLY Charts/Pages/Graphs and Stat Tracking

blank

– In this update we have also tied Elite Accounts into the application so that the features that you get with your JEFIT Elite Membership will tie into new application features that Elite Members only have access to.

These features include additional stats and graph pages for the workouts that you are performing but you also gain access to lengthier Weight Lifted Over Time Graphs, Bodypart Breakdown, Lifting Intensity, Total Exercise Time, Wasted Time Graphs and much much more which are only available for Elite Subscribers.

With those who have a subscription to JEFIT Elite and log into your Elite Membership on the application, you will have access to all Pro and Elite features.

5.) NEW – Workout On The Fly

blank blank

– We understand that there are users who doesn’t follow a traditional workout routine and at times, perform a workout on the fly. With this information we have created the newest feature, aptly named “Workout on the Fly”, which allows for JEFIT Members who don’t follow a standard workout routine to be able to select the exercises within JEFIT (either Built-In or Custom) and easily start recording workout logs without the need for a routine.

By default the application will automatically set up your “Reps/Sets/Timer” based upon the default values that you have set for yourself on the preferences page.

As you record your workout logs using the “Workout on the Fly” functionality, the application will automatically start tracking your workout session so that you are able to view your current progress with the workout you are performing.

6.) NEW – Favorite / Recent / Most Popular Exercises

blank blank blank

– We have made various changes to our exercise database as well, now allowing for users to set up their “Favorite” exercises as well as view their most recent exercises either performed or view along with the most popular exercises performed by JEFIT Members.

On the exercise detail page for a specific exercise, you will be able to highlight/click on a star icon, this will set this select exercise as your “Favorite” exercise.

While on the exercise list for a specific muscle group, you will be able to slide the page either to the left or right to gain access to these new pages, by sliding the application to the right you will be able view your “Most Recent” exercises performed as well as the “Most Popular” exercises performed by JEFIT Users.

We know that having additional options and choices to split up viewing the exercise database as well as marking down your favorite exercises will greatly improve your usage of JEFIT and structuring workout routines that you will create.

Additionally setting up your “Favorite” exercises will also tie into the latest feature that we have added into the application, the NEW Custom Benchmark Tracking feature.

7.) NEW – Custom Benchmark Exercise Tracking

blank blank

– Users are now, by utilizing the “Favorite” exercises functionality, track their custom benchmark exercises based upon the exercises that they have set as their most favorite exercises to perform.

To access this page you will want to click and initiate the slider feature, after which on the left panel you will want to click on the “Reports” link. From here you will slide the page to the left and from here you will notice a header listed as “Custom Tracking”. This section will list all of the exercises you have marked down as your “Favorite” exercises and you will be able to track your custom benchmark progress for each exercise.

10.) NEW – Body Part Measurements / How To Page

– On the body stats page we have now included a section that helps users understand how and where to measure their specific body parts so that they can get the accurate results for their body measurements.

This includes images that pinpoint where on your body you will want to measure to get the most accurate results possible.

11.) NEW – Re-designed Log Page Layout with Icons

This will allow you to easily view your logs and stats, see when you have recorded specific logs on each date and more.

Also we have include a new 4th tab/swiper page specifically for Progress Photos so that you are able to view the progress pictures that you have taken on select dates.

12.) NEW – Workout Summary Total Time During Workout

blank blank

– As we have previously introduced the workout summary functionality into a previous update of JEFIT, in this latest update we have included the new feature where you are able to view your total workout time/workout summary during your workout.

Once you initiate the the workout session for your workout, you may navigate through the Routines and Exercise pages and be able to view your total workout time during the workout you are currently performing.

13.) NEW – Workout Summary View During Workout

blank blank

– Along with the ability to view your workout time during your training, you may click on the total workout time button and JEFIT will generate for you a mid-session workout summary so that you are able to view how your workout is progressing throughout the routine/training that you are performing.

This will give you a sense of how you are doing for your exercises, if you need to pick up the pace, how many records you have broken and more.

14.) NEW – SuperSet Highlighting and Identification

blank

– The super-set functionality is a major and frequently used feature for the JEFIT Application, with this update we have included the new super-set highlighting and identification option where you are able to easily view which exercises that you have grouped together within a super-set.

15.) NEW – Redesigned 1RM and Total Volume Charts w/ Additional Data and Stats

blank blank

– We have also gone forward with this update and completely re-designed our 1RM And Total Volume Charts page so that you now receive a clearer/much more organized graph along with summary data based upon the information that you have recorded for the exercise data that you are viewing.

In the summary section you will be able to view the maximum and minimum 1RM and Total Volume that you have recorded, and the first/latest time that you have recorded data for said exercise.

We feel that the changes to these graphs will make viewing your stats/1RM and Total Volume charts much more efficient and coherent.

16.) NEW – Time Period Length to Track Graphs and Data

blank

– Also with the latest changes that we have made to the 1RM and Total Volume charts, we have included the new “Time Period” option so that you are able to select the time period of which the graph will generate your data for you.

The options that you have to view your data for are the past 14 Days, 30 Days, Last 3 Months, 6 Month, Previous Year and All of the data that you have recorded.

17.) NEW – Routine Searching

blank blank

– On the download routines page/slide, we have included the new “Routine Search” functionality where you will be able to search for routines based upon the type of routine, difficulty, and its popularity among other JEFIT Members.

Right now this option is only available for JEFIT Team created workout routines but as more user-created workout routines get submitted to the routine database, we hope to include user-created workout routines to this list.

18.) NEW – Last Time Synchronized

blank

– On the main slider panel, we have included the time table for when your last synchronization was.

This is beneficial for those who have potentially forgotten when their last synchronization was for their workouts and data that they have recorded to make sure that this data is stored within your account on the database.

blank

– To tie into the workout session functionality, we have included the new workout “in session” notification text on the left panel so that users know when a workout session is being recorded.

This is beneficial for all users, especially Elite members so that their Training Reports will be adjusted accordingly based upon the workout sessions that they record.

Sharing Routines With Friends Now Available!

Hello All,

We wanted to inform you that we have introduced a new feature into the JEFIT Website where you are now able to share your workout routines with your friends.

Privately Sharing Routines with Friends

In regards to sharing routines with your friends, the standards and rules of copyright still apply when sharing such routines with others. It is important to follow these rules and make sure that if you are sharing a routine with somebody else, that you are sharing your own content and a routine that you have created on your own.

When you receive a privately shared routine, you will receive a notification in the top right hand corner in the “notification panel”, where you will be linked to the routine that has been shared to you for download.

New Public Routine Sharing Features

Recently we had to temporarily remove the user submitted routines as we have had a DMCA Complaint and a few users not following site rules and posting routines that have a copyright.

Thus we have had to take the necessary steps to remove the routine database at the moment (in regards to user-submitted routines).

We are going to bring back the routine database shortly but going to incorporate new features and routine reviews so that we don’t experience any DMCA complaints or copyright routines in the future.

One of these new features will be a review system in which a routine that you have submitted to the routine database, will have to go under review of the JEFIT Team to make sure that the routine contains no plagiarism or any copyright material within the routine that is being submitted. This review process should take around a day or two make sure that the routine is of original content and design.

We understand that this might be a hassle but this is important for us to protect copyright laws, JEFIT and following proper standards when it comes to sharing routines to the public.

One other notice, we also understand that there are many popular workout routines that have previously been submitted to the routine database, for those who have submitted those routines, you can re-submit them, we will review the content and post it the routine database after the review.

We appreciate all of your understanding and patience as we work forward to bringing back the routine database.

Again we appreciate all of your support and understanding

We hope that you all enjoy the new private routine sharing between yourself and your friends and continue to enjoy your usage of JEFIT!
