Available across almost all Apple devices, the popular exercise app SmartGym is out today with a big update. Changes and improvements include tracking for muscle fatigue and recovery, tags for routines, Family Sharing, personal records, and much more.

SmartGym 6 is arriving today and it comes with an impressive list of new features for an even more comprehensive experience for tracking your workouts.

As we always say, we never settle at SmartGym. We are constantly making it better. And this is a huge update! It brings amazing new features, carefully created to help everyone become more active, but always maintaining SmartGym’s famous ease of use and simplicity.

Muscle targeting and recovery

First up, every routine now shows “how much each muscle will be targeted.” As shown above, the brighter the green in the diagram, the more that muscle will be targeted. The workout summary screen will identify which muscles were used.

Beyond that, SmartGym helps you visualize your current muscle state based on your workout history and shows a muscle recovery time.

Routine tags and types of sets

For better organization, SmartGym 6 offers tags to quickly and easily label and find routines. For more customization, the update also brings the ability to precisely log what type of sets you’re performing like warm-up set, drop set, regular set, etc.

Personal Records, Screen sync, Family Sharing, and more

Further great additions include a Personal Records screen as well as an opt-in screen sync feature that makes the independent Apple Watch app sync with your iPhone screen in case you want to use them simultaneously.

There’s also now a Family Sharing option for SmartGym Premium, a new monthly history view, and a Mission Control widget to easily keep an on your workout trends and progress.
