What's New in Version 4.1
Fixed the bug causing app to crash when logging workouts and adding exercises to your custom workout.
Doesn't work to track exercises
UPDATE: The custom workouts still don't work, but I've found the app useful over time. I manually track each of my exercises and use the timer. I look at the custom workouts to remind me of the routine. My recommendations to the developer are: fix custom workouts tracking. Show exercise history chronologically (not sure what sorting it's using). Add the timer to top of app so it can be watched interactively.
Pervious post: Don't waste your money! I bought this app with the sole intention of tracking my Bowflex workouts. The manual shows all of the exercises, so that wasn't part of my purchase decision. I created a manual routine (albeit difficult to create initially), but now when I select any weight to track, the app closes/crashes. Open it, tried tracking another exercise, it crashes. I will give the app credit, the videos are decent, but again this isn't why I purchased it. I wanted a custom workout because I only want to workout for about 30 minutes or less, and the included workouts appear to be much longer. Unless you want to watch video of someone training on an old Bowflex, DON'T BUY THIS APP. I will update this review if I find a better solution.
Before writing a bad review I first tried app support. No app support, instead a very broken link. Has potential but two or three major issues: 1. The workouts don't include all of the Bowflex workouts, especially using the upper pull down bar, so I could not match my workout to the given exercises. If you could define a few of your own it would be okay. 2. I don't think there is any way to output your workout data, but due to 3. The app crashes if you make your own workout and touch any of the items in your custom list, I never could get past using my own workout. Finally, this app has no links to myFitnessPal nor does it interface with Apple's Health app. Really, since this is a paid app, it should have support at least. I will consider giving it more stars if it does not crash and if I can use it with all my own exercises, outputting my data somehow. No graphs, no progress reports etc.. I'm disappointed. Has potential. Two suggestions. Sliders are great but it's a fact that the power bars on a Bowflex go in increments of 5lbs. So why are numbers ending in digits other than 0 or 5 even allowed. Also sliders are not good for everything. Text fields work faster. Hope they fix this app.
This is a fantastic app for staying with a routine, learning the Bowflex machine with the various exercises, and increasing weight and reps incrementally as one's ability increases. When I first bought the app, the video worked and now doesn't, but as another reviewer stated, the two-step pictures are just as useful. My app has never crashed and I track my reps and weight with the "log workout" button (it's a bit hard to see but it's there for every exercise). I also like the variety of routines provided. I primarily use the women's toning and/or weight loss and I haven't tried personalizing or using the "my workout" option but I haven't found the need for it. All in all, I depend on this app for all my Bowflex workouts and see results every time I stick with it.
