If you needed any more reason to hate Chris Hemsworth, the actor, philanthropist, muscle-bound real-life superhero just gave you one. As states across the country make the drastic decision to close gyms under the new lockdown stipulations, effectively giving us the perfect excuse to just sit at home and eat Doritos, the God of Thunder just had to step in and ruin it. In an Instagram video posted today, Hemsworth revealed he is making his fitness app Centr free to all new users for a six-week trial, five weeks longer than the regular offer.
Gee, thanks, Chris.

Hi there all, during this period of self isolation and uncertainty, I am offering six weeks of my health and fitness program @Centrfit for FREE! Go to centr.com and sign-up. Centr was founded to make health and happiness accessible to all, and I hope that this will make that access even easier during the current global health crisis. I think now more than ever is when we need to focus on what I believe to be the 3 key pillars to living healthier and happier- movement, nutrition, and mental fitness. In recent weeks Centr has seen a groundswell of support from our customers and communities, with thousands of members around the world coming together and sharing how the program has brought them positivity and support during these difficult times. Available at centr.com only, for new users only.
For the uninitiated, Centr is Hemsworth’s latest fitness endeavour. A meal planner, personal trainer, and zen coach all rolled up into one neat package, the platform is sleek enough to fit inside your smart device. Designed to provide personalised meal and training plans to help you reach your goal, Centr has fast become one of the most talked-about fitness apps on the market. Having a superhero as an ambassador probably doesn’t hurt though.
For fitness fans, the government’s ban on non-essential services was essentially a death sentence for your summer gains, but Hemsworth believes this new offer could be the ticket. “Centr was founded to make health and happiness accessible to all, and I hope that this will make that access even easier during the current global health crisis,” he said.
The subscription-based fitness app ordinarily costs around $120 a year for a lock-in contract, so six weeks free is a pretty sweet deal. You can check out the free trial through Centr’s website until 31 March.
