While not everyone has time to hit the gym for an hour each day, who doesn't have seven minutes to spare in a day? The 7 Minute Workout app for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone has been created for those with busy lives but still want to look after their health. The app features a variety of high-intensity bodyweight exercises that are very quick to do and easy to understand. The app doesn't confuse you with timers and a long list of exercises; instead, things are kept very basic but effective.
The 7 Minute Workout app really gives users the ability to stay fit without all the fuss of joining classes, a gym, or investing in expensive equipment for your home. Just because you don’t have tons of spare time to dedicate to working out doesn’t mean you can’t still be in shape and be healthy. The app features 12 different high intensity bodyweight exercises. Each of these exercises takes 30 seconds to complete and then you are given 10 seconds of rest between them. As mentioned you won't have to worry about a timer or counting because the app is all voice-prompted, allowing you to just focus on the exercise.
In its most recent update the developer made the fitness app now compatible with iOS 8 and the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The app features a number of in-app purchases that range in price from $0.99 to $4.99 to unlock everything. The app scores very high with users, getting 4.5 out of five stars. Users love the simplicity of the user interface and the workout itself. It’s hard to find an excuse as to why you can’t do a seven-minute routine.

What to Expect
Besides the 7 Minute Workout being a quick and simple option what else can users expect? Each of the exercises is well-described so you aren't left feeling confused.
