I believe we all have untapped potential. And we all need support to achieve our goals. Centr puts the world’s best in the palm of your hand, to help you develop a healthier body, stronger mind, and a happier life - CHRIS HEMSWORTH

If anyone knows a thing or two about getting fit, it’s the guy who plays Thor.

Chris Hemsworth has transformed his body to play the Norse god of thunder in the Marvel films numerous times, reportedly gaining over 20lbs of muscle to play the role.

Audiences around the world have been so impressed with Thor’s ripped body that Hemsworth’s various workouts have become some of the most popular searches on Google.

Inspired by this overwhelming interest, the 35-year-old Australian actor is now capitalising on his reputation as a god in the gym with a new health and fitness app called Centr.

The app is a personalised digital health and fitness programme curated by Hemsworth, which offers content designed by and featuring members of his team of world-class fitness, nutrition and wellness experts.

“I believe we all have untapped potential,” Hemsworth has said. “And we all need support to achieve our goals. Centr puts the world’s best experts in the palm of your hand, to help you develop a healthier body, stronger mind, and a happier life.”

Customised workouts
The Centr programme can be customised to suit any fitness level and a range of dietary or lifestyle needs. Accessible via iOS app, Apple Watch and online, it offers daily workouts, meal plans and meditation, as well as a 24/7 community where users can find support, extra tips and behind-the-scenes extras to improve their quality of life.

The training programme allows users to choose their trainer and set their goals and workout intensity. Workouts can be self-guided or coached, and users can train at the gym or at home in as little as 20 minutes. Workouts include boxing, HIIT, HIRT, functional training, strength training, MMA, boxing and yoga.
