Now available on iPhone & iPad.
No matter if you’re new to resistance bands or a pro looking to re-visit fundamentals, this app is for men and women of all ages that want to learn and perfect resistance bands.
Join Shannon Ashley as she safely walks you through the basic training for resistance bands. This app includes 27 training exercises and 8 complete workouts derived from them.
Videos download fast, all over the world.
All 36 videos in this app (about 1 hour and 5 minutes of video content) take up minimal space on your device – about 162MB!
That’s important when you need space for other apps, music and pics on your device!
This app is intended as a low-cost introduction to resistance band training. Always consult with a doctor prior to starting any training regimine.
No. This app is intended as an introduction and a reference guide. In general, the exercises are put in the specific workout order for a reason.
Shannon provides personal training and group classes in the San Diego area.
You can find out more at her website, Encinitas Trainer.
So if you own both devices, you can put it on both devices with a single purchase.
This app was build for iOS 8 or later.
The initial download is less than 20MB.
Upon retrieval by WiFi or data connection, videos are stored on your device. This increases the size of the app – up to a total size of 162MB.
However, we have purposely limited video quality to minimize the space taken up on your device. Do you really need full HD video for this anyway? 🙂
You can remove these videos in the Settings menu, or by simply uninstalling the app from your device.
What type should you buy?
Shannon likes and uses bands by Bodylastics, as they are relatively inexpensive and come with a lifetime warranty.
Bodylastics band systems are graded by the total amount of weight you can create by combining the included bands.
Shannon recommends starting with the 14 piece Max XT set, which costs only $39.95.
Solution: Turn off the mute switch (or mute icon). Disable Bluetooth.
By default, the “side switch” (located near the volume controls of your device) functions to mute most sounds on your device. If you look at it and see the color red, your switch is in the wrong position.
When you change the switch position, if you see a lock icon (not a bell icon) appear on your screen, then your side switch is set to “lock screen rotation”.
In this case, swipe up from the bottom of the screen to access the Control Center, then tap the mute icon (the bell) so that it is black (not white).
If you have a connected Bluetooth headset, the sound might be playing though that. Simply disable your Bluetooth.
Solution: Get on a strong WiFi connection and re-download all the videos.
If your WiFi connection was interrupted during video download – you might have only downloaded part of the video.
To fix this, first make sure you are on a strong WiFi connection.
Second, launch the app and tap Settings, then tap Remove All Videos, Yes, then Close.
Finally, tap Download All Videos and wait until you see they have all been downloaded. This can take up to 5 minutes.
Solution: Be fair. Email us first.
