+ WHAT’S HIIT +
High-intensity interval training (HIIT) is an enhanced form of interval training, an exercise strategy alternating periods of short intense anaerobic exercise with less-intense recovery periods. HIIT is a form of cardiovascular exercise. Usual HIIT sessions may vary from 4–30 minutes. These short, intense workouts provide improved athletic capacity and condition, improved glucose metabolism, and improved fat burning.
This definition comes from wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High-intensity_interval_training) where you can find a lot more informations. It explains some very popular program, like the TABATA. HIIT is also a common practice in Crossfit trainings.

Ratings and Reviews
Some bugs and needed updates.
Like the app. Nothing amazing, but a nice way to organize a routine.
1)it doesn't always play in the background, I find I'm better off keeping in open.
2)Coming back from another app, it'll spazz out and tell you you're doing something else but is actually where it should be
3)If I pause the app, as I hit play to continue, that immediately pauses my music being played on the same device, both my library and iheart.
4)Occasionally it will freeze when a text comes in
5)The robot voice needs some work. If I have to hear her say "cycle" as Si-eye-cle" one more time...but I need the sound on for the queuing. So either fix that or allow us to use the beeps without the voice.
1)would like to be able to look at the routine while I'm doing it, right now that's not an option. Once I hit play, all I can see is where I am in the routine.
2)sharing. Would love to be able to send routines to other friends I've had buy the app too.
3)Once you've started your routine THAT'S IT. There's no skipping an exercise or going back. That would be a nice feature to have.
If these get fixed and addressed this would be one of my favorite workout apps
Great App as is, and hope it continues to improve
Really like the simplicity of this app. The text to speech is great, I can program a workout and it tells me what to do. Also like the integrated music behind the scenes.
Would like to see the app add the ability to do a series of exercises as a circuit. Right now if you want to do 10 exercises in a workout, and each exercise 3 times, you have to do that same exercise 3 times in a row before moving to the next exercise. I'd love to be able to move from 1 to 10 in order once and then repeat again without having to start the workout all the way over. I'll pay for that upgrade!
This is a good app. I've tried several apps trying to set a high intensity interval walking workout and this was by far the easiest to set. I am not a 'techie' but was able to figure it out. I think it would be a lot better if there was a settings/button icon and it took me a bit to figure out how to navigate the app, but I did end up being successful. The app support is poor. I tried contacting them 5-7 days ago when I had trouble finding settings and navigating the app and have yet to receive a response.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
