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

On a phone

Open the Samsung Health app. Tap the Discover tab, and then tap Programs. Select a specific program that interests you to view its details. If you like the program, tap Add program, and then tap Done. Once a program has been added, it will appear on your Samsung Health Home tab.

Note: If it's your first time looking at programs, you may need to review a disclaimer before you're able to view the full list of available programs.

On a smart watch

Before you can add a program to your watch, you have to add it on your phone. Any programs added to your phone will automatically be available on your watch and can be added using the Multi-workout widget. If you don't have this widget, you can add it from the watch or the Galaxy Wearable app. Once you have it, scroll to Multi-workout, tap Add, and then tap the name of the program you want to add. Now tap Done, and that's it!
