Programs vs. planner: A guide to training with Centr

Centr Team

Let’s face it, starting a fitness program can be hard – some people find gyms to be a bit intimidating, and the nutrition side of things can be complicated if you’re going it alone. That’s why a lot of fitness resolutions fizzle out before they even begin.

The good news is when you join Centr Chris Hemsworth’s team of experts become YOUR team of experts, and the hard stuff doesn’t seem so hard anymore! It’s super easy to get started with a daily Planner personalized to work for your goals, or you can jump in and kickstart your fitness journey with a specialized Program.

How does my Planner work?

When you join Centr, you set your goal, training intensity, and eating preferences – and your daily Planner is instantly personalized to help you reach your fitness goals. Your Planner is the heart of Centr – think of it as your personal assistant, with everything you need for the day organized in one spot: your workout, meals, meditations, and tips to keep you on track. Each day, you'll be able to choose between a Coached or Self-Guided workout suggested for your goal, or swap a different workout entirely.

And once you’ve got the hang of things, you’ll love mixing it up with a variety of workout styles (who knew Pilates could be so tough?), and the ease of swapping in workouts from the Explore, or adding a bonus session to challenge yourself. By sticking with the workouts and meal plan in your daily planner, you know you’re on track to your goals.

So what’s the deal with ‘Programs’?

You may have heard of our 6-week programs Centr 6 and Centr Unleashed – but what are they, and how are they different from your ‘regular’ Centr workouts? Let’s break it down.

The Programs section is home to short-term, targeted workout programs. Build strength, tone and balance in our yoga and Pilates program Centr Align, challenge your body and calm your mind with Centr Fusion, unleash your full potential with our no-equipment program Centr Unleashed, master functional training and transform the way you move with Centr Masterclass: Da Rulk, or build your strength and cardio fitness with Centr 6 and Centr 6: Phase II.

If you’re new to training or just getting back into it, a dedicated program encourages consistency and focus: you know exactly how many workouts you’ll be doing and for how long, so you can commit and get into the habit of regular exercise – then when the program ends, you can return to your Planner workouts and push even harder to reach your goals!

And because thousands of Centr members around the globe are sweating up a storm on the same Program as you, you can share your experience and find support in our Facebook community.

Each Centr Program is designed to deliver specific results, so be sure to choose the Program that best aligns with your fitness goals.

Now you know how short-term Programs complement your personalized Centr planner, let’s dive into our current Program line-up.

Every Unleashed session is unique and the workouts evolve as you progress, so you’ll be going further every week. And HILIT modifications make the workouts suitable for everyone: “HILIT is high intensity with low impact, so you're going to be smashing it out safely,” Luke explains.

Plus, because this is training unleashed, you’ll have Dan Churchill dropping in with bonus challenges, and a weekly stretching session to aid your recovery.
