In case you haven’t heard the news, the PIIT28 program now has its own app! However, even if you have purchased the PIIT28 program online in the past, you will have to purchase the subscription to the PIIT Pocket app because they are two separate products. This is something that was an issue for many people, but that didn’t stop PIIT Pocket from becoming one of the top downloaded fitness apps in the market. So let’s get down to the PIIT Pocket Review. Is it worth downloading?
You can download the PIIT Pocket app for free and gain limited access to the app. To gain full access to PIIT Pocket, you can subscribe to the app for $9.99/month or $99/year. Purchasing the yearly plan will save you $20.88 versus paying $9.99 a month. This PIIT Pocket review will focus on the full, paid version of the app.
The PIIT Pocket app is divided into five sections: workout plans, meal plans, your calendar, videos, and your favorite items. The layout is very straightforward and easy to navigate. Everything is right where you would expect it to be based on the icons. The color scheme focuses on colors like pink, blue, and purple against a dark background.
Customized Workouts and Meal Plans
The customized workouts and meal plans are the main selling point of the app. The original PIIT28 program and 28 Day Reset was not very flexible when it came to customization. Both programs gave you calendars to follow, which is great when you are just starting the programs. However, after a while, you might find that things are getting a little repetitive, and you want to change things up a bit. If that’s the case, you would have to do that on your own. You would need to get your own calendar, plan workouts and meals yourself, etc. It’d definitely not impossible, but it does take work.
With the PIIT Pocket app, you can create and customize your own workouts and meal plans using the moves and recipes from PIIT28 and the 28 Day Reset. The app makes it easier to search for recipes and exercises to customize to your own preferences and goals. Everything is done right in the app so that you don’t have to go hunting for notebooks or trying to remember which app you wrote your plans in.
Creating Your Own Workout
Creating your own PIIT workout is easy. Simply select the seven moves you want in your workout and organize them in whatever order you’d like. When you reach this section, you’ll see the moves are in alphabetical order, or you can search by the move’s name if you know it. You can also filter by target muscles. I do wish that you can see the instructions and modifications in this view as you can the PIIT28 program view. I feel like it might be easy to completely ignore a move from a custom workout thinking it’s not for you when there might be a modification that can help build your strength up to the full expression of the move.
Creating Your Own Meal Plans
The 28 Day Reset was not a part of the original PIIT28 program. You had to buy it separately. That is not the case for the PIIT Pocket app. You get access to all of the programs including the 28 Day Reset. There is also a vegan version of the plan.
As you can see in the screenshot above, the recipes are sorted by breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks. This makes meal planning a lot easier. Creating your custom meal plan is simple. Just choose the recipes you want for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks!
One feature I would like to see in the future is some sort of grocery list generated based on your meal plan. I like to do my shopping once a week. My current routine is to write down a list of ingredients for the week after meal planning. It becomes a bit of a pain if you misplace the grocery list or forget to do it completely.
Features Missing from the Web Version of PIIT28 & 28 Day Reset
There are a few notable things missing from the PIIT Pocket app that is only available with the original version of PIIT28 and the 28 Day Reset online. The PIITstagram challenge, which is what you need to complete to earn the PIIT28 top, is only available online. Additionally, you do not get any downloadable content to view offline. Both the original PIIT28 and 28 Day Reset programs came with ebooks that you can save on your device and even print out if you wanted. The 28 Day Reset also came with grocery lists for each week as well as guides and information that is not currently present in the app.
PIIT Pocket Review: Final Thoughts
The PIIT Pocket app makes customization a lot easier, but there are still a few things that could make it more streamlined. However, it is a great tool for people who will use it often. The app is still new, so there is a lot of room for improvements and updates in the future. Also, PIIT Pocket is the only place where you will get access to PIIT28 4.0. Unfortunately, due to plagiarism, Cassey has decided to only release PIIT28 4.0 on the PIIT Pocket app. This leads me to believe that there will be more focus on developing the app rather than creating more programs like the original PIIT28, but only time will tell!
