Good nutrition is the cornerstone of any decent fitness routine. That’s why most personal trainers will tell you that you can’t outtrain a bad diet. To help you on your fitness journey, we have reviewed four workout apps that contain meal plans and other nutrition planning features. Bon appétit! 🙂
Centr is a fitness app developed by famous actor Chris Hemsworth, providing access to hundreds of workout routines, tutorial videos, and nutrition plans, all designed by a team of world-class experts. Upon initial login, users take a quiz to assess their fitness levels and goals, and Centr recommends specific workouts accordingly. The app is an excellent choice for beginners, as it generates comprehensive training plans.
One of the standout features of Centr is its nutrition section, which offers hundreds of recipes and a daily meal plan consisting of breakfast, lunch, snack, and dinner. The app’s nutrition plans come with a detailed nutritional breakdown, allowing users to track their macros. Additionally, users can save their favorite recipes and search for recipes by chef or dietary requirements, such as gluten-free or dairy-free.
Centr even gives you a shopping list where all the ingredients from daily recipes are collected together, making meal planning even more convenient.
Despite offering an impressive range of content, Centr comes with a steep price tag of $29.99 per month. However, the app does offer a 7-day free trial to let users try out the content and features before committing to a subscription.

Sweat is an all-round fitness app created by renowned fitness influencer Kayla Itsines. The app is specifically designed for women and offers a range of workout styles, including Barre, Pilates, pregnancy workouts, HIIT, cardio and strength sessions.
In addition to the workouts, Sweat has a range of supporting features, such as a community forum, training programs, healthy recipes, and progress tracking and achievement features.
Just like Centr, Sweat has a database of healthy eating recipes available and provides a meal plan based on your dietary requirements. Each day, users can view their breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack meals, complete with an ingredients list and recipe.
Unfortunately there is little flexibility in switching around meals, and no nutrition information provided with the recipes such as macro and calorie data.
Sweat does require a monthly subscription fee of $19.99 required to access its features. However, the app does offer a 7-day free trial for users to test out the content before committing to the subscription.

FitOn is a fantastic fitness app with an unbelievable amount of workouts and features.
Hundreds of high-quality workout videos are featured in the app, covering various categories such as HIIT, cardio, strength training, yoga, and even more unconventional options like self-defense and pre- and post-natal workouts.
In terms of features, this app has everything. You can expect to find progress tracking and reward badges, but the most impressive aspect is the community section. Here, you can chat with other users on community boards or comment on their workouts. Working out with FitOn is a fully social experience.
Of course, FitOn also includes meal plans in the app. There is a vast library of healthy recipes catering to all types of dietary requirements, including high-protein, vegan, and even gluten-free options. Every day, you are given a meal plan that includes breakfast, lunch, snacks, and dinner. Unfortunately, there isn’t a great deal of customization available in these meal plans, and you can’t swap out meals for alternatives.
You can actually use all the workouts in FitOn for free, which is a massive advantage considering the quality of the routines. To unlock premium features, including the meal plans and nutrition section, you can expect to pay $24.99 for a six-month subscription.

Nike Training Club
The Nike Training Club app is exactly what you would expect from Nike. The app is stylishly designed, and there is heaps of high quality workouts available. Beginners and those looking for more challenging workouts will be happy with what is on offer here.
In addition to the workouts, there is a whole range of supporting features, including reward badges for completing workouts and streaks, and even community features so you can follow friends and comment on their workouts.
The nutrition section in Nike Training Club is a little on the basic side. It is really more of a collection of healthy eating recipes and articles on taking care of your nutrition. You don’t get personalized meal plans generated for you like in Centr and Sweat.
The NTC app is completely free to use, which is unbelievable considering the amount of quality workouts in the app.

Asana Rebel positions itself as a premium fitness lifestyle app, combining yoga workouts with healthy recipes and meditation soundtracks. The app’s design is sleek and modern, with workout videos shot in beautiful locations. However, the fast-paced workouts may be difficult for beginners to follow along with.
Just like NTC, the nutrition section is only a collection of healthy eating recipes that you can filter by categories. To be honest there is nothing here that you wouldn’t be able to find for free online.
You can use Asana Rebel for free but the content is very limited. To upgrade to the unlocked version requires a very pricey 3 month subscription at $37.99.
