Saving all the monies!!


Made a home gym in my apartment with this app, along with a push up and squat pyramid app, I have seen fantastic results. Thanks for making workouts at 5:30am manly and worth getting up for! I’ve also dropped almost 4 mins on my 100 burpee challenge! Thank you!

Love the app, but I have some suggestions.

1. Please connect to the health app and track heart rate for people with iwatches
2. Can you potentially allow me to select two workouts at the beginning, I use extra core workouts often. I would love it if I could combine workouts together. Do the 12 minute workout first, then the core challenge. I often forget I want to do that or get distracted in my house after I finish and skip the core challenge.

3. Mentioned before, but theirs limited customization with the app. I would love to make my own workouts and have time customization.

4. Potential added equipment / workout areas. Wind sprints? Ab roller?

Look forward to the

Hey Andrew,

Thank you so much for the feedback! Our next version (coming very soon) will connect to the Health app, and we are working on the ability to create your own workouts. Noted on the additional equipment as well : )

Can’t get past sign up screen


Please be advised before you plunk down your money for this app! I have been trying to create a login to use this app, since I paid for it, but after putting in all of my information I get a spinning wheel for a second and then nothing else happens. No next screen, no error message. Nothing. I hate doing it but I even tried using my Facebook as a login but it wouldn’t let me do that either. It said I was using some wrong version of the app. I have tried uninstalling, reinstalling, resetting phone and no luck. After attempting to reach out to the developer via email AND twitter I haven’t heard back at all. If you still want to try downloading this app, proceed at your own risk!

We are SO sorry about this! Our server was down for a few days, it was so frustrating and I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. You should now be able to create an account and use the app - please email us at if you have any further issues with the app.

For men too?


I'm prior military and have been in sports like baseball, football, and even MMA since I was 4 years old. I'm a father of 5 kids which all have after school activities and I was looking for something that can have a quick workouts but still have the intensity I've been missing. I thought this was more for women but I can assure you, these workouts are tough for guys and yet quick, exactly what I needed. Love it!!!

So glad you like it Frank! It's definitely for men as well :)
