Talking Gym Spotter is your personal workout companion. A hands-free 'spotting partner' that talks you through your whole exercise routine via your headphones using natural and conversational language. You can leave the details to Spotter, letting it instruct you as you concentrate on exercising.
If you often workout alone, you may have lacked enthusiasm without a companion to keep you going. Taking too many breaks, or delaying between exercises? Spotter will tell you your next exercise, how much weight to lift, how many sets and repetitions you should do, and also when to begin and when to take a rest, making sure you keep to controlled time limits.
Short of actually helping you lift the weights on that last rep, Spotter will motivate you and help you to get a better workout.
• Works with music player - Spotter will talk to you over your music while you workout.
• Keeps up your motivation levels throughout your routine.
• Keeps you exercising to strictly controlled time limits that you specify, so you avoid cooling down too much between sets, or overdoing it. This means you get a more effective workout.
• Keeps your overall workout to a fixed time, so you're not late for your next appointment!
• Conveniently stores all your workout details on your mobile.
• Uses state of the art voice synthesis from Acapela - create any exercise names you wish.
• Intuitive user interface lets you set up and control your workouts quickly and easily.
• Fully customise your exercises with name, weights, sets, repetitions, and time allowances of your choosing.
• Copy and paste individual exercises or whole workouts, avoiding extra setup work.
• Easy editing features let you rearrange your exercise order or skip exercises during your workout - ideal if your gym is busy.
Talking Gym Spotter is not an 'exercise tutorial' app - it does not contain predefined exercises or instruction. It is intended as a programmable companion - you enter all of your own workout details and then refine them with each visit to the gym, e.g. changing weights or times to fit your own workout needs. It is primarily intended for weightlifting exercises, but you can add cardiovascular exercises into your routine too.
Total workout/exercise times include speech and represent the real elapsed time, so will be longer than the times you enter.
The price and large file size are necessitated by the use of Acapela voice synthesis. This enables high quality, natural sounding voices to be included in the app.
The normal screen lock on your device suspends the operation of apps. For this reason, Talking Gym Spotter features a built-in screen lock which you can use during your workout if you want to put your mobile away in a pocket etc. This allows the app to keep running throughout your whole workout, but stops you from accidentally tapping any controls.

Great app. Nothing's better to make the time to go pass quickly during the strenuous exercise in the gym. Clear instructions so just put your favourite music on, choose the voice of your gym buddy and off you go! You won't get bored.
Thanks a lot for this app. Highly recommended.
This is best app! I love it!
