our expertise in the palm of your hands

The AF App is only available as part of your AF Membership or AF Online Services

The AF App is

your essential training partner.

THE ATHLETE FACTORY believes that with the right support and knowledge, you truly can get the results you want, thats why we created the AF training app. The app allows us to provide our facility members with the programming knowledge of our elite coaches and monitor everything you do in our facility.

Every member at our facility will have a programme built on our AF training app which is aligned to your needs, abilities and goals.

Your programme is delivered via our interactive smart phone app, which explains all exercises and techniques through video’s and description’s. Our app tracks your progress, it links to other devices like FitBit and My Fitness Pal, so you get the monitoring and tools to guarantee a fitter, stronger and leaner individual. With this monitoring you become accountable and we can help support you 24/7 through the live messaging on the app.

The app is a crucial tool for us to give the care, knowledge and support to every member.

STEP 1 Your consultation – We will ask you a series of initial questions including:

  • a description of your fitness goals;
  • to rate your previous experience with exercise
  • what your existing dietary habits are like; 

You will be assigned your own dedicated AF Performance Coach who will utilise training methods currently being used in elite sport to maximise your development. Every exercise, routine and plan is accompanied by a comprehensive video clip demonstrating each movement, body positioning, and important coaching cues for you to optimise your training and get the most out of each session.

You’ll also be invited to upload to your account your first set of body images, which you can take yourself and which will only ever be seen by you and your dedicated Coach. These images and a series of straightforward starting measurements will help you both to track your progress week-by-week. You can also link devices such as Fitbit and My Fitness Pal to your AF Training app. Giving you all the data you need to get results.


From the start of your programme you can record your weight selection, reps and sets count and review your session for your AF Performance Coach. The instant messaging feature provides unlimited access to your personal AF Performance Coach for questions surrounding your online training, nutrition and lifestyle.

Your AF Performance Coach will review your session data and your feedback, making any necessary adjustments and providing ongoing support and motivation.


This is a programme written specifically for you. So every four to six weeks, your AF Performance Coach will make minor progressive adjustments to your prescribed programme based on how you’re doing and how you’re feeling.

A key element to optimising training adaption is the concept of ‘progressive overload’. When your body becomes accustomed to the training load you are exposing it to; i.e. the same training sessions or the same level of resistance or training volume, your body stops adapting, stops getting better and your performance is no longer being enhanced. To prevent that, your AF Performance Coach, will utilise proven, evidence-based sports science methodologies and adapt your training programme to best support your continued athletic development.

In the tenth week of every set of twelve, your AF Performance Coach will compare your results throughout the current phase in your programme and introduce bigger changes to your programme design to prepare you for the next 12-week cycle and for your next change in results.
