Freeletics has just made the biggest change since the bodyweight app was launched in 2013. For the first time ever, Free Athletes now have the option to train with weights, bodyweight or a combination of both, all within one app.

This is a huge deal for Freeletics, and we’re here to answer any questions you might have.

“I thought Freeletics was all about bodyweight training?”

We wanted to create a product that would help you to become the best athlete you can be, and this means offering you a choice of different training methods so that you can choose the one that suits you. Freeletics started off as a bodyweight app, but, like you, we continuously grow and develop. We decided the time has come to set you a new challenge and provide you with a new opportunity… the killer combination of bodyweight and resistance training

To all our Free Athletes with us since day one: Bodyweight will always be the heart of Freeletics. But now, you have the option to choose Training Journeys that contain weight training, bodyweight exercises or a combination of both.

“Does this mean that I have to train with weights now?”

This doesn’t mean you have to train with weights, but the option is there if you want to. We wanted to give Free Athletes more choice and more opportunities to personalize their workouts according to what suits them. If you don’t have access to the necessary equipment or simply aren’t interested, that’s totally fine, and there’s still an expansive range of workouts to choose from and you’ll still get the full 360 Freeletics experience.

“How can I find the weights workouts?”

Within our muscle and strength building Training Journeys, there are bodyweight Journeys, resistance Journeys and Journeys that offer a combination of bodyweight and weights training. Put simply, there’s something for everyone; whatever your goals or limitations, there’s now really no excuse for not becoming the strongest version of yourself.

This is a massive change for Freeletics and we can’t wait for you to embark on this next stage of the Freeletics odyssey with us. We’re always striving to improve and grow and want to help our users do the same, which is why we’ve levelled up the Freeletics experience. So, what are you waiting for? Choose you Training Journey now.
