An idea is born: William Artemon loved working out, but he rarely had a plan once he got to the gym, saying that he prefers to "freestyle it" by combining exercises he already knows with ones he sees other people doing, plus a move or two pulled from the Internet. To keep track of his routine, he jotted down exercises on a piece of paper, adding stick-figure drawings. "This is obviously not very efficient," he says, but it lead him to dream up WorkoutLabs, a website that lets users build free workouts and print them out, complete with how-to illustrations.
Why it’s great: The WorkoutLabs Custom Workout Builder not only lets you create and print personalized routines, it also allows you to customize moves based on gender. Don't feel like designing your own workout? Choose from their library of pre-made routines and programs.
What’s next: The company recently released Exercise Cards—plastic decks of cards with printed bodyweight exercises, stretches, and five workouts that you can take anywhere.
