As featured in the New York Times and on Good Morning America, this iPhone and iPad health app has been scientifically designed to help you get into shape in a safe, fun, and extremely effective way, with more than 1,000 workouts to choose from and featuring the creator of the 7 Minute Workout, Chris Jordan.
To be completely honest, the Health & Fitness app category of the App Store is completely inundated with “7 Minute Workout” apps that all claim to be “proven by science” and “a cut above the rest,” so although this one is heavily endorsed, is this workout app really all that different to the rest of the competition?
At first glance, this gym app definitely does appear to offer a lot more content than its counterparts; however, let’s take a slightly closer look to see if it really stands apart from the crowd.
As soon as I started up The Johnson & Johnson Official 7 Minute Workout App for the first time, I could tell that the developer has quite clearly put in a great deal of effort to make this app stand out from the dozens of similar apps within its genre.
When you first start out, the app will ask you to provide a rating of your perceived fitness level, offering a summary of what each rating means and how it may apply to you.
I like this because many other apps of this kind simply throw users in at the deep end without making the distinction between beginners, intermediates, and so on.
Get Fit In Your Own Way
From here, you’ll be able to access the Workout Library which contains a ridiculously large quantity of workouts that you can choose from depending on your goals and preferences. Furthermore, the workouts are sorted in order of difficulty, so you can make sure you start at a level that is appropriate to you.
If you’d rather take the initiative and create your own sessions, you can do this within the Custom Workouts section, but be sure not to shy away from exercises that you don’t enjoy because they might be just what your body needs to rev things up a little!
You’ll also be pleased to know that if you successfully complete a particularly challenging workout and you’d like to let the world know, you can share all of your workouts with your friends and family online via Facebook, Twitter, email, and text message.
