There is a video tutorial on the Google Play site and also a video at this link below which explains how the app works:
IRON JOE® is a cardio kickboxing workout designed to achieve top health and fitness results. Each exercise session is composed of strikes and a combination of both punches and kicks.
Q: Is IRON JOE a workout video?
A: NO. THIS PROGRAM IS NOT A VIDEO. DVD workouts can be outrageously expensive and once you purchase them they never change! After multiple sessions they become boring and it's easy to lose interest and not stay committed. Unlike those other workout programs no two IRON JOE exercise sessions are ever the same because each workout session is generated by a randomizer...each time you exercise the routine is different!
Q: How difficult is this program?
A: There are no complicated strikes in this workout program, but BE WARNED, the Expert Level is intense! A basic tutorial on strikes can be found on Youtube at this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y4ToePCOpPY
Q: Is exercise equipment needed?
A: While a punching bag is recommended for this program several people utilize this program without a bag especially when traveling on business where cardio exercise classes are not available.

There are three Skill Levels in IRON JOE: Beginner, Intermediate, and Expert. The difference between each level is the time between each strike and complexity for each of the combinations. Additionally, each punch and kick produces a “timing strike indicator” which indicates how fast you should be hitting or kicking the bag to enhance the workout session. The higher the Skill Level the more intense the workout!
