What does it do?
If you want to transform yourself from couch potato to fighting fit, Para fitness is the app for you. Designed by Major Sam McGrath of the legendary Parachute Regiment, you will be put to the test in a series of fitness exercises to train you to parachute regiment standards in the army. Think that you are unfit and need to get into the swing of things? Start at a basic level and slowly progress with the progress tracking and level of exercise meter. Change the reps and the weights of all of the exercises with simple screen taps and view all of the exercises with brilliant example images. This app was even shortlisted for the Best Adult App in recent awards.
What’s the verdict?
This definitely is not for the faint hearted, it will push you and keep pushing until you really are at the best you can be. Unlike most other fitness apps, Para Fitness was designed with you in mind. It really understands that not everybody will be able to leap in at the highest level straight away (we definitely couldn’t) and paces you so that you will not injure yourself in the process. There are hundreds of options to choose from which makes the app long lasting and guarantees you’ll be fighting fit if you stick to the strict program.
