There are three steps to creating a training program in Hexfit:

The current article describes the design stage of the program, i.e. where you will have to put your exercises, choose the number of sessions, and do.


Creating your program

Program or session?

A session corresponds to a "period" of training. A program can contain one or more sessions.

Here is an example of a program containing two sessions:

Program: "Hypertrophy"

  • Session 1: "Upper body".

  • Session 2: "Lower body".

When you create a new program, there will be one session. By default, it will be named after the program.

To learn how to change its name, click here.

Add a session

To add a new one, click on "+ Add session":

You will then have two choices, either:

  1. + Create from scratch.

  2. Clone an existing session, click here to learn more.

Configuration of the session or program (basic)

Add an exercise

  • Hover over the exercise and click on the "+". (It will be placed at the end of your list)


  • You can also "drag and drop" it to the desired location in the list.

I don't see the "+" to add an exercise

To be able to add exercises to the session, you must select one first.

Link exercises between them (ex: Circuit training, Superset)
