You've gone through your whole workout repertoire and are looking for something new. Samsung Health has a variety of fitness programs to mix up your routine. There's stretching, weight loss, running, endurance training, and more. Unlike exercise trackers, workout programs give you a set schedule that you can follow. When you add or use programs, you'll feel challenged again.

Note: Available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider, software version, or phone model.

Add a program
