App is pretty well made and easy to follow for beginners. Tutorials are very motivational if you need it. I suggest a way of being able to keep track of what says you've done in the workout series. Plus after finishing let's say Day 7 the screen reverts back to the start of the list at Day 1 so you're forced to page back over.
Used this app with my Monkii Bars for the first time today, and it kicked my ass. It's nice because it's geared from the beginner trying to build an exercise habit, all the way up to workout buffs looking to do so outside of the gym. The gifs demonstrating each exercise make it really easy to figure it out, and the subcategories allow you to find the workout that's right for you.
I just got my Monkii bars yesterday and I'm already loving them! I retired from competitive gymnastics this year and I've been looking for a way to keep up my fitness and motivation now that I'm not training 4 days a week. The Monkii bar app has easy to follow workouts and there is a great variety so I won't get bored! I'm doing the 21 day Monkii habit series at the moment to get the idea of the proper shaping for using the bars. So far it is awesome! It is slightly easy for me so I'm tripling the sets but for a complete beginner it would be perfect. One thing I'd like to see is the possibility to download workouts so that they can be accessed with no internet. As a constant traveller and dodgey wifi owner, this would be perfect! Be wild, Monkiis!
I like it but have a suggestion...I would like a way to either download or cache the video. The videos keep pausing on me due to low WiFi/MiFi bandwidth. Thanks!
I'm an backer of the Monkii Bars 2, and this app is geared towards the equipment. There is a bodyweight section that none Monkii Bar owners can utilize (I've started it today). The look of the app is clean, simple, pretty, and whimsical (well the names are [this is a positive]). There are two main sections. 1st is the Workout categories, which has 9 sub categories, and those each have a variety of workouts that you can follow with a gif like video of a person doing the workout. It tells you how many sets to do, you swipe, and move onto the next one. There are so many workouts to follow, but it gives you good starting places. Having the person doing the workout on a gif loop is better than seeing a set of pictures. This is a very cool visual for you to understand how to do each workout. The app has some problems. It does not track all the workouts that you have completed (they have mentioned that this feature is coming). I wish you could change the rep count to have some control and real representation/tracking of how many reps you actually complete. Last, you will lose your spot if your phone goes into screen saver mode or screen out. Overall, I think it is a great app.
Good start. Forced landscape mode, no good overview of content in different workouts, no tracking even in 21 day program and no custom works outs. Lots to improve on :)
