Not what it sounds or looks like...

This App is more of a “trap” instead of a freedom individual workout. You pay $2.99 for just an already set 12 minutes or a 16 minutes workout that you cannot edit nor change workouts etc. In order words, if you don’t like that 12 mins or 16 mins workout this app is pretty much useless. I think you should be able to set your own exercises from the ones available and create your own workout. So if you want to have more of a freedom, you have to spend even more money and purchase one of their “workout packs” which will unlock more workouts. But once again, they are all already set workouts so if there’s one in that workout pack you can’t do because you don’t have the equipment needed, you can’t substitute it or change it for another one. Also, you can’t view the exercise packages BEFORE buying a pack so if you don’t end up liking that workout pack, you’re once again screwed. You should be able to see what you’re buying first!!!

They also offer types of programs and a monthly and annually programs. At the end of the day, the main idea of this app is to be a business trap rather then a workout app. I would love my money back for the app and packs I bought. Not happy.

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 : )

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 :)
