Personal Fitness Coach app offers unique workouts that include running, cycling, walking, strength, flexibility, and more from world-renowned athletes. The app coaches to train smarter, not harder. Nevertheless, the app has several UI defects such as pointing, unclear user notifications, non-displayed covers, and the 'take photo' function that does not work. These defects do not break the main functionality of workouts, which I find excellent, but they still need to be fixed.
