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'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 :)
Overall a solid beginning to the monkii app. There are a few things i would like to see improvements on including portrait view, favorites, workout builder and community support. I really like the clean, colorful user interface and the exercise gifs of monkii Dan are great. Great start! 4 monkii-thumbs up!
Great app, can't wait for my monkii bars to arrive. Until then I'll be doing the full body. Also loved the extreme workouts, well thought!
This is a good start for the monkii app, and includes a number of training plans and videos. I miss the ability to fav the ones I use, or to create my own from the building blocks used for the sequences. They also promised geolocation support which is still missing.
