Where to find fitness support in your app
The WW app is your go-to for everything you need to know about your PersonalPoints plan and that includes access to exclusive workouts and fitness content. Your WW app allows you to track your activity and provides access to a library of workouts, all included with your membership.
Another great feature of our app is the ability to add points to your weekly Budget by tracking physical activity. When you track an activity in the app, Points will be added to your weekly PersonalPoints budget, easy right? The number of points you can add is calculated by the intensity of your activity and your metabolic rate (determined by your age, height and weight, and sex).
Getting active is an important part of losing weight and reaching your wellness goals, and the WW app is here to help.
