This app is intended as a low-cost introduction to weight training. Always consult with a doctor prior to starting any exercise or training regimine.
Always start with a minimal amount of weight and work your way up safely.
Until you gain experience, beginning with no weight at all is perfectly acceptable. Working out safely is always the number one priority. If any exercise ever hurts, stop what you are doing immediately, and get help.
Again: 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.
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 170MB.
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.
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.
Writing a bad review doesn’t actually help anything. And we have no way of contacting those that write reviews to fix problems.
If you’re experiencing a problem after reading the solutions on this page, email us a bug report so we can continue to improve and update this product, and fix any issues.
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.
