  • Okay

    by Ronin555777

    It's okay

  • Good but simplistic

    by Livestrongcad

    In weight-lifting, form is "everything!" This app Needs more detailed instructions; for instance the Overhead Cable Pulldown says nothing about "setting" the posterior deltoids and traps so that the exercise works the muscles it is intended to work--without proper form (1) one risks injury and (2) one doesn't work the muscles as intended or properly. This app is good if you know the correct form And just want a reminder of how to create some new "mixes" of exercises, but if you are a newbie to weights, get a few private sessions with a good trainer and learn technique. I am not a trainer, so not looking for clients, just a long term (35 yrs) female lifter, and have been fortunate to have had some great trainers who have instilled in my practice the need to focus on form, not on the amt of weight.

  • A very solid workout tool.

    by Humble Sacrifice

    This app has helped me create a well rounded routine. The examples are sound and I have been happy with the results. No gimmicks, solid sample workouts everyone can incorporate into their time at the gym.

    by Early pearl

    this app is amazing!!!

  • Pretty great!!

    by ErnieV21

    Only issue I had was figuring out whether you can add an exercise that's not already listed in the app. I figured it's something you can probably do with the paid version.

  • Great app for a workout schedule

    by MBAdawg

    Worth especially for do not have a gym buddy

  • Stop pausing my music!

    by Smiz2989

    This app is great, but every time the rest timer goes off, or I unlock my phone, the app stops my music. Quite annoying, especially mid-lift. Otherwise great!

    by wtrdge

  • Cool

    by Fusckle


  • Love it

    by gisellmybell

    Love working by muscle group.

  • Good idea but...

    by God's_chosen1

    This app is awesome in that it can help you on your way to working out by providing you with workout regimes if your having trouble with motivation or knowing where to start. HOWEVER, the thing that initially turned me off is that most of the features such as the weight tracker and whatnot, they require you to upgrade in order to even access them. Kinda seems like somewhat of a ripoff to me. Other than that, it seems like a great app.

  • Nice app

    by Therhynobird

  • Bad techniques.

    by Ck20fb

    This app teaches improper techniques on many exercises. They should learn their stuff before they make an app.

  • Fantastic

  • Good one!

    by kkr27

    Lots of workouts to try, with or without equipment. Youll never get bored

  • Awesome

    by Alphamalekiller

    If u only have one exercise App this is it. Enough said.

  • Great app but one annoying bug

    by Nick Punto

    All of a sudden for some reason, the primary and secondary targeted muscle section at the top when viewing an exercise has bugged out and it no longer says it and gets all jumbled up together. It was working fine before but it just started happening a few days ago. It's not really THAT big of a deal to me because I already made my workouts and know what muscle each exercise targeted but when I want to look for new exercises, it can be a bit frustrating. Fix this minor bug and 5 stars will be all yours!
