Customized Programs:  Our programs are customized to your level of fitness.  When you download a program, the first step is to complete a fitness assessment.  We use the basic functionality of your smarthphone, such as GPS, to run the assessment.  Based on your results, we develop a program with specific exercises and targets just for you.   As you progress through the program, you will complete periodic assessments to track your progress.  As your level of fitness improves, the workouts get more challenging.

Performance Monitoring:  Whenever you complete an assessment, whether at the start, middle, or end of a program, we allow you to compare your results with your peers according to your age and gender.  Over time, you can chart your progress across the various components of fitness, and select programs to target the components you want to improve.

A Practical Workout Schedule:  All of our programs are made up of two workouts per week, and each workout is designed to take approximately 30 minutes to complete.  Our programs can easily fit into even the most hectic schedules.
