Note: This app does not sell nor provide any music files. All music must be purchased and supplied by the user. Les Mills music can only be obtained by registered instructors either directly from that company or authorised distributors.
Press Play and Go is a music manager for group fitness instructors. It allows playlists to be created from your existing music as well as seventeen Les Mills programmes. It recognises both the original and cover versions so you can create classes most suitable for the music licences where you teach.
You can add breaks or timed pauses between songs and have a visible (and optional audible) countdown before the music starts - handy for changing weights or a drinks break. You always know when the class will finish which means never running over time again.
The Les Mills quarterly releases are automatically created from your supplied music - including bonus tracks. Simply rip your instructor CD to iTunes or download the digital files and sync them with your device; the app will display the titles and artists and put the songs in the correct order. Creating your own mixes is simple as only the songs you have available for each track in that programme are suggested. Changing the songs in mixes is even easier.
The multi-song groups of BODYJAM and BODYBALANCE are handled in the same easy manner. You can easily create playlists for the express class formats. It supports the new and previous formats for BODYATTACK and both the 70/30 and Athletic class types for BODYSTEP.

Playlist at end of class won’t play?
I have an iTunes playlist selected to automatically play at the end of every class, but it only actually plays about one out of every five times. No rhyme or reason why. Any ideas?
I love my PPG app! It makes prepping, practicing and teaching my Bodypump class so much better! I can easily pick my track list when mixing between new releases. I can set time in between tracks so that I can "press play and go" at the start of class and not have to mess with my iPod! The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because I would like to be able to access certain single tracks I have from past releases. If you do not have the full release loaded on your device, you cannot do this. I have some releases that I only like a few tracks but I don't like the entire release, but I can't include them in my PPG playlist. I have to do a manual playlist with just my regular iPod music to use those tracks and then I don't have the benefit of the pauses, etc.
Otherwise I love this app. It keeps me on time and keeps the class moving and means I don't have to attend to my iPod the whole class time unless I want to!
The price has gone up since I first got it, but I would still say its worth it!!
Love this app, but . . .
Ever since I downloaded it my music starts at the last place that I stopped listening to a track instead of the beginning. This is particularly an issue when I use the pre-class music snippet feature then this then has the music start in the middle of the track (wherever the snippet ended) instead of the beginning. Also, the new bodystep 91 with the new format didn't come in to the app after addition to my iPhone. Finally, some releases have alternative tracks (BodyPump 84 for example) which aren't provided as option when setting up your playlist, so you have to set up a freestyle class to use the alternative tracks.
