Thanks you so much for taking a look at my app. I really appreciate it.
I decided to launch Shape Up because ever since Love Island, the most common question that I am asked is ‘How do you stay in shape, Gabby?’ Well, here’s how.
I’m a qualified personal trainer, fitness instructor and professionally-trained dancer - so I have always been into health and fitness and worked in an industry where it was important to try feel and look your best!
During my years of training, I have become very fond of endurance training so I incorporated it most of my work outs. I believe it gains great results, training your muscles in a completely different way, under resistance and time under tension! This app focuses on sculpting and shaping your body rather than just weight loss.
Most exercises last just FIVE minutes – easy! By doing this three times a week, you will start to see results in no time.
I hope this programme works for you as well as it works for me!

Ratings and Reviews
Great workouts but functionality is lacking.
I’m really enjoying the workouts and Gabby’s explanations of them. After one session I could feel that I’d worked out which I don’t often get with home workouts. However no music on the videos makes them a bit dull - a tricky one to improve as whatever choice of music may put people off as you can’t please everyone. I really can’t fault the exercises or Gabby’s presentation skills.
However, the functionality of the the app leaves a lot to be desired. I had to delete and reinstall to get any of the videos to work after the first time, again not ideal. I also think that the text boxes you scroll through are far too small, it makes it cumbersome to read it. It would be helpful if the whole page including the videos scrolled up with the text so you could fit more on the screen.
Thank you for your comments and feedback. We decided against music for exactly the reason you describe, musical tastes are diverse and you cannot please everyone. The app should install and play correctly first time and the vast majority of installs work in exactly the way intended. We are sorry you experienced a problem but pleased that this was resolved and you know have the opportunity to experience the workouts. On your last point about text scroll boxes we appreciate your comments and will take this on board for future.
Love it so far!
Great app to help get me motivated! Updated my phone to latest IOS and works fine for me. Downloaded all the videos whilst on wifi so can use them whenever and where ever I want to now. Handy you can create a workout which will play thorough rather than clicking to and from individual work out videos. Gabbys voice over on all the videos is nice and calm and motivating could listen to it all day! Also the voice over is great because it helps to keep you informed and make sure you’re keeping the right position/posture etc throughout.
Less than ideal
The workouts are enjoyable, I’m already really starting to feel the benefits and the videos are really easy to follow. Perhaps it’s just me, but I struggle to stay in count with the moves without music but it does make Gabby’s instruction all the more clearer (and they’re often quite annoying!) so I can see why they’ve chosen to omit a backing track.
However, I couldn’t get the app to work on my phone, so I downloaded it onto my iPad (and perhaps this is where all of my problems have stemmed from) but I couldn’t get the workout I built to play a cool down. It finishes on the last exercise I do before the cool down.
I’m hoping these are just teething issues because I really enjoy the workouts!
