Guided, focused, randomized circuit training in 30" intervals instructional images/videos

There's admittedly a certain unique charm held exclusively by drill-sergeant fitness instructors, but perhaps you'd prefer to take your circuit training minus the shrieking. Ryan Hanna's Sworkit is for you.

Choose between two broad categories of movements first, either Strength Training or Yoga, Cardio, & More. From there you'll be prompted to specify - do you want to work your whole body, or focus on core strength? There's light warm up activities available as well, plus guided stretching from head to toe. Select how many minutes you'd like to workout from 5 - 60, and you're all set to sweat.

The app will guide you through activities matching your chosen category in intervals of 30 seconds each, dinging to signify a change to the next movement and prompting a rest period each two minutes. All exercises are indicated by corresponding still images, plus an additional real-life video in case it's still unclear what you need to do. Best of all, no exercise requires any extra equipment - no resistance bands, no free weights, and definitely no gym membership.

Once you're finished with your workout, the app will inform you of a few stats (time spent, calories burned) and offer you the opportunity to "challenge a friend" over social media.

A few complaints: if you're in the middle of a workout and suddenly find that you need to check out the video in order to know what to do, the video has to take a few precious panting seconds to load, which is rather inconvenient. The "ding" that signifies when each 30 seconds are up is also not nearly loud enough, particularly if you're playing any kind of music along with your exercise.

Still, Ryan Hanna's Sworkit is a solid addition to the apps that enable folks to keep in shape without submitting to the tyranny of the gym.

Developer's original description available here
NO GYM, NO EXCUSE - Workouts that fit your schedule, vs needing to adapt your schedule to work out!
- That long day at work.
- When you have to travel.
- That morning you slept in.
- Your newborn baby.

Other workout apps and workout videos are like playing records. Sworkit is like an iPod or the evolution of digital music with playlists and personalization at the core.

Sworkit routines guide you through video exercises demonstrated by professional personal trainers.

If you already have a trainer, please don't fire them! Just have them create custom workouts for you to do in between your training sessions.

Or if you're particular or have special needs (like a bad knee and want to avoid jumping exercises), create your own custom workouts from our library of over 160 different exercises!

Target any area of your body: Upper Body, Lower Body, Core, Abs, Butt, Back, Legs etc.
Workouts for everyone: Strength, Cardio, Yoga, Stretching, and Pilates.

Sworkit uses a scientifically proven technique of combining interval training with randomized exercises to maximize the effectiveness of every workout. Best of all, these randomized circuit training workouts require no weights or extra equipment. You can choose your workout length and target different areas to create the perfect workout anywhere, anytime. The randomized aspect helps your body workout harder by preventing it from getting used to a specific routine, helping you stay motivated to exercise and stay fit. The circuit training aspect provides additional cardiovascular fitness with each exercise being presented in 30 second intervals with a built in rest periods.

DON'T limit yourself to the 7 Minute Workout's same 12 BORING exercises...

DON'T feel guilty...

DO Sworkit and see results in as little as 5 minutes a day!

    only for those trying to impress others by SAYING they go to "the gym" (meaning they practise gym-type exercises) -- really useless for cardio work -- use Endomondo for that. Yoga as a series of discrete moves?? Dev must have NO IDEA of what "yoga" really is -- DO NOT practice yoga using this app -- you'll be missing out on the best parts of it, and probably hurt yourself. In fact, there's so lit

    I've tried a lot of 7-minute workout apps, and settled for this because it's the best out there! A huge collection of exercises that can be randomly shown make it hard to get bored! The app hardly has any bugs, unlike other similar apps. It also has an amazing support team that are very courteous and prompt to respond. One of the best apps on Google Play, and the best workout app!

    I wanted a Tabata app that could throw random exercises at me. This thing doesnt know what Tabata means. It gives you a new exercise every 20 sec. Its supposed to be every 8 cycles. No way to customize. Even paid version.

    I enjoyed the workouts to start as the first 2 videos played but then none after that each time. It would be a great app if I could get the videos to play.

    I'm new to the fitness scene and I just love this app! Helps me figure out what to do! And connects to my fitness pal so it atomically records what I do. Perfect!

    I love the app and how it links to other fitness programs but some updates causes the videos to freeze. The last updates caused problems with my Galaxy S4 but prior to these app worked great. Please work on solving the video freezing and program failures. This is a great workout aid just needs the bugs worked out.
