If you are into keeping fit then Workout Assistant may be just the kind of app you will need on your BlackBerry Z10 or Q10. Just how I like things - the user interface is kept clean and crisp but the app still offers plenty of functionality.

I must admit I'm not very active and sports are not my thing, but for testing purposes I pretended I was into weight training! So adding activities to Workout Assistant is super easy. You just tap the 'Add New' tab at the base of the screen and off you go. You can then name the activity and a description and then add as many different exercises to it as you like.

There are a bunch of fields you can fill in such as Name, Sets, Weight, Time and Notes - so keeping track of what you have done or even what you intend to do is a piece of cake.

Priced at $0.99/£0.75 Workout Assistant is a bargain if you ask me. Ooh, I feel my muscles bulging already!

Full features include:

  • BB10 NATIVE User Interface and Technology
  • Ready for Z10 & Q10
  • Unlimited Plans/Logs
  • Single Plan Editinf/Deleting
  • Unlimited exercises for plan
  • Single Exercise Deleting
  • Lot of fields for every Exercise (reps, sets, weight, notes...)
  • Built in Timer
  • NO ADS!

Seems like a great app but I could never risk breaking my z10 in the gym that's what the ipod touch is for.

CB10- BlackBerry Z10

Pretend workouts... I be liking that! I think we should all get on with our pretend workouts. I should also develop a pretend diet LOL. Right now I am going to pretend I didn't scrape out the bowl from the cookie dough and are three cookies... tomorrow I will pretend I have 10.1!

Seriously, a good diet and work out app would be nice...

I miss a few great fitness / dietary apps from my 9810. Can't find their website to ask them to upgrade to the BB10

I wish it was a little more robust. I would be nice if it had pre-registered workouts that you could choose and add info such as reps and weight.

All I need is Mike Dolce of The Dolce Diet, awesome podcast, twitter, MMA/UFC master health and fitness guru.

Looks like a nice simple app, did I miss where he entered the weight / lbs used for the exercise? Have to go look in BlackBerry World for it. Hope dev is actively engaged, needs work / rest interval timer with audible alarms.

Will probably buy, and pretend as suggested above.

I think this is a good app, the bad thing is that it's not free... such selective app already be free.

Sucks for running if you ask me. Wish it was more like Endomondo and timed you and gave you all the info (fastest lap, lap times, distance, etc) on your run, cycling etc...even GPS data. I miss Endomondo on BB, I really hope they bring it soon. I even sent them an email but never heard back from them. I wish there was an app that had a timer, like say I wanted to do sprints. That I can set it to run 30 seconds then jog for a minute per se and set total workout time to 15 mins (for example). Then, every time it was time to jog it would do a beeping sound, horn or something to let me know it was time to jog and when I was done at 15 mins, it'll do a full continuous horn to let me know I'm done. I've been wanting an app like this forever to help me on my workouts cause I hate having to keep looking at my watch.

My BB10 app Couch 2AnyK Pro is great for people who want to start running to get in shape and follow the Couch to 5K plan. @mavicxx the functionality you are looking for is actually planned for a future release (hence the name), you will have the option to create you own basic running workout/workout plan and then use them and track your progress. For now one of the Week 1 or Week 2 workouts might work but instead of running/walking just sprint/jog instead.

Try GymTime. I just wish it had audible alarms for the split timer but the visual ones do in a pinch. Also, I wish there was a way to turn off the auto-dim feature of the z10 while these apps are running, hence the need for audible alarms.

I'm still trying to pressure Fitocracy to make a BB10 app... they're not budging :(
Other than Fito, I needed one with GPS so I just downloaded Sports Tracker. It's not too bad so far, haven't logged anything with it other than my lunch time walks though.
