Substitute one exercise for another in your workout or edit your workout:
We have all had the experience of being at the gym and of not being able to move to our next exercise because someone else is using the equipment we need. You may want to just move on to the next exercise in your workout or sometimes you will want to add in a substitute exercise to your workout.
You can add in a new exercise to an existing workout by:
Tap on the workout to open it
Tap on the three dots icon in the top right
From the menu that appears, tap on "Edit this workout"
From the menu on the bottom you can choose "Select" to delete an exercise
Tap "Save" - this will update your workout AND/OR
From the menu on the bottom you can choose "Insert" to add in an exercise
Tap "Save" - this will update your workout with a new exercise
Once you have completed a workout and entered all your workout stats you have the option to tap "End" in the top right or tap "Close" in the top left.
You do not need to hit "End" to save the workout stats. Stats save automatically even if you tap on "Close".
How to enter workout notes:
While you're in a workout, you can enter in notes. Tap the paper icon on the top right of the screen, and enter in your note. Tap "Save". Those notes can then be referenced later from the workout calendar, online.
Using the rest and interval timer:
If rests have been added to the workout, tapping on the rest in the workout sequence will launch the timer to the specified amount of time a Trainer has set it for.
To launch the timer not in a workout sequence tap the stopwatch icon at the bottom right. The timer will automatically start counting down.
While the timer is running you will see a gear or cog icon to the right. Tap on this to set the countdown timer timing.
To stop the timer tap the icon again. Once the timer finishes, you will hear a chime (provided your phone is not set to silence or vibrate).
How to track workout stats:
Keeping track of exercise progress is an important part of keeping clients motivated, celebrating accomplishments and identifying areas for improvement.
Workout stats can be tracked by clients themselves, or trainers can track stats for their clients as they train the clients in person.
Once you access your workout from your mobile app.
You can then start the workout, and simply follow the exercises displayed to you, and enter in the stats as you workout. Then when the workout is ended, the stats are automatically synced to the website, so you can monitor your progress.
(Clients can also print out hard copies of workouts to take to the gym as well if you prefer. You can write your stats into the table on the printed tracking sheet, and stats can be entered later on the workout calendar. *Note stats don't have to be entered, it is just an option.)
