This is a free app on iTunes and so far, I think it is a great app. My hubby bought me an I Pod touch for the holiday and this is one of the apps as to why I wanted one. I think this is going to be a well used app for me.
So, far I have only done 1 routine: Get Toned: Beginner: Body Flexor. Oh boy, am I feeling it today. I did not think I worked out that hard at all. But, apparently, I must have because my muscles are screaming today.
Each routine is 30 or 45 minutes long and has different exercises lasting 1 or 2 minutes. Each exercise has written as well as video instructions. I realize now it would have been better to familiarize myself with each exercise first. I came across a couple exercises I was not familiar with and had to watch the video to see how it was done (the workout timer paused when I checked the video). After my workout, I went through the videos and realized I modified a couple exercises to an easier version. Considering the way I feel today, I do not think that is a bad thing.
I am thinking I am going to really like this app and will be using it on my cross training days. I especially like the variety of exercises and that each one was timed and the cues were helpful not annoying.
And did I say this is a FREE app! It is often said you get what you pay for, well, I think I got a great deal on this app.
