I'm new here and have spent the past hour searching the site for potential answers to my question, to no avail. I did find this list of fitness apps: Creating a compendium of fitness and nutrition apps?

However, it doesn't quite get at what I'm asking, so I'll try to explain the situation.

I'm a fit individual, who works out 5-6 times a week with kettlebells, barbell weightlifting and bodyweight exercises.

What I find difficult is putting together my programming instead of just showing up and working out. For example, this morning I decided I would do kettlebell exercises, but I threw together a workout on the fly. In contrast, Monday, Thursdays and Saturdays I do Stronglifts with my girlfriend, which leaves my no wiggle room for throwing something together on the fly, but achieves definable results.

I'm looking for an app that can put together the disparate pieces of my workout puzzle and prescribe me a program that will help to achieve my goals.

After looking at most of the apps that exist, it seems that there are a) encyclopedic apps with a ton of exercises but terrible UX, or b) really gimmicky 7-minute booty burner workouts that I wouldn't touch with a ten foot pole.

Does anyone here have recommendations for something similar to what I'm talking about? If you use fitness apps, and even have a bad experience, let me know -- it might be helpful in getting closer to what I'm looking for.

I use FitNotes in order to keep all of my exercises in one place. You can write down the exercises and divide them to different muscle groups in order to understand on which days you worked on which muscles.

    This doesn't answer the question. He's not looking for a note taking/tracking app, he is looking for an app that says "On this day do this", and makes the program for him.

I use MyFitnessPal to track nutrition, & Runkeeper to track my runs. Both can by synced together as well! For weight training I use Evernote its pretty BA, you can asctually log workouts on pen and paper and just snap a photo of it on the app!
