This app is great for people with a busy schedule. It breaks workouts up into 30 seconds segments, with ten seconds of rest between each. Really the only problem is that the penalty for missing workouts doesn’t provide enough incentive not to miss them.
Seven also motivates you toward your goal with positive reinforcement:
— Unlock achievements from Novice to Athlete as you vary your routine
— Earn rewards and health-related giveaways
— Set up daily reminders, or when you’ve missed too many workouts
— Track your progress visually on color-coded graphs and calendars
— Share your success with friends by e-mail, text message, Twitter or Facebook
THE ULTIMATE 7-MINUTE WORKOUT app
Seven guides you through the 7-minute workouts with precise illustrations, visual timers, spoken instructions and even tactile feedback to switch between 30 seconds of intense exercise and 10 seconds of rest.
— No internet access needed. Work out anytime, anywhere!
— Play songs from your favorite music app in the background
— Fitness enthusiasts can do multiple circuits for longer workouts
— Armband friendly: vibration or voice mode indicates when to switch exercises
— Google drive sync to keep your progress up-to-date on all your devices
— The “Learn” tab includes pro tips on how to perform each exercise
Now all of us, busy as we are, can stay in shape!
The app provides incentives in the form of achievements that can be gained by reaching certain milestones. It also has a selection of trainer voices to encourage you during workouts. You can set reminders, and later reminders for if you miss your workout.
