Note: This app does not sell nor provide any music files. All music must be purchased and supplied by the user. Les Mills music can only be obtained by registered instructors either directly from that company or authorised distributors.
Press Play and Go is a music manager for group fitness instructors. It allows playlists to be created from your existing music as well as seventeen Les Mills programmes. It recognises both the original and cover versions so you can create classes most suitable for the music licences where you teach.
You can add breaks or timed pauses between songs and have a visible (and optional audible) countdown before the music starts - handy for changing weights or a drinks break. You always know when the class will finish which means never running over time again.
The Les Mills quarterly releases are automatically created from your supplied music - including bonus tracks. Simply rip your instructor CD to iTunes or download the digital files and sync them with your device; the app will display the titles and artists and put the songs in the correct order. Creating your own mixes is simple as only the songs you have available for each track in that programme are suggested. Changing the songs in mixes is even easier.
The multi-song groups of BODYJAM and BODYBALANCE are handled in the same easy manner. You can easily create playlists for the express class formats. It supports the new and previous formats for BODYATTACK and both the 70/30 and Athletic class types for BODYSTEP.
X3 Pty Ltd has no connection at all to Les Mills other than participating in a lot of their classes.
All your music remains available in the iPod music library so no additional space is used.
Bug fix for situation where Power Training 2 and Combat 3 tracks were being interchanged.
Ratings and Reviews
Great app for mixing playlist for classes. It's a little frustrating that you have to put it in airplane mode rather than just do not disturb. Would also be good if you could skip a track without being asked do you wish to skip. Really useful that it has all the program info for each release and tells you how many minutes the playlist will go for! Great start for this app! Look forward to updates :-)
Extremely handy, love it
I think this is a very cool app. I'm starting out in group classes and this is a really easy way to compile lists and now I found how to make my own :)
If you PPCA music doesn't show it's because of the long silence at the end of track 10, and get rid if the track 11.
This is a great idea however the playlists don't show my latest releases. It's 2 releases behind. The whole concept is great and once the bugs are sorted I will certainly use it. For now I have to stay with the standard iPhone music player.
