Are you stumped as to what workout to do today? These free apps allow you to create personalized workout plans and exercise routines based on your preferences and available equipment.
It’s easy to become bored with the same exercise routine every day. In addition, you must alternate between different muscle groups when exercising. Workout Of the Day (WOD) is a great way to keep exercise interesting, but it requires a gym membership. Instead, for a free alternative, use one of these apps to generate workouts or create your own custom mashup of exercises.
Treadapp (Web): Drag-and-Drop Exercises to Build Regular or Interval Workouts
Treadapp is one of the most user-friendly online workout creators you’ll come across. Building a workout is as simple as dragging and dropping exercises from the library into the workout plan. If an exercise isn’t in the library, you can create your own by typing in the name, a YouTube link, and the core muscle group it targets.
You can specify how many sets, reps, or seconds an exercise requires after dragging it into the exercise session. Treadapp also allows you to create a circuit out of multiple exercises in the drill and then add sets to that circuit. If you want to switch between different types of workout plans, it supports both interval training and regular training.
Completed plans are saved in your workout library, which you can share with anyone via a link. People without an account can also access the link. Trainers can use the app to create workout plans and share them with their clients. However, as a layperson, you can use it to create custom workouts for yourself or to share with friends.
Pumpd (Web): Create Custom Workouts Based on Goals, Equipment

Pumpd generates a week-long workout plan based on your input. It will exercise different parts of your body in each session, similar to a personal trainer. But now comes the fun part. If you don’t like any of the exercises, there’s a button that allows you to switch to another exercise that targets the same muscle groups. You can also watch a YouTube video demonstration of any exercise or remove it entirely from the plan by clicking on it.
The WOD Generator (Web, Android, iOS): Fastest and Diverse WOD Generator
The WOD Generator is an excellent free tool for quickly determining the best WOD or circuit for your needs. The website has over 10,000 WODs, and the mobile apps have a few more that aren’t available on the website.
To begin, select the type of WOD you want to do, such as bodyweight, partner workouts, endurance, equipment, travel, EMOM, AMRAP, and so on. You can apply a few more filters to each section, such as choosing equipment in the equipment WOD generator. Create a WOD after you’ve entered your options. If you don’t like what you see, tell the app to keep making new ones until you find something you like.
Make a Playlist with YouTube Videos
While these apps allow you to create custom workouts and exercise routines, they largely ignore YouTube, which has the largest library of free workouts. There are a plethora of ways to get and stay in shape, ranging from short 30-second videos that explain an exercise to longer routines.
Specialized apps are fantastic, but don’t let them suffocate your creativity. If you prefer a YouTube creator, you can use the video platform’s built-in playlist feature to make your own workout mix. After all, it’s free and unlimited.
