Great idea, but... The 'Road to Rome ' is a great idea but is not realistic at all. It has rep goals for each exercise to maintain intensity but is completely non-interactive. Even if you miss all your rep goals it continues to increase your interval time every single workout. I don't know anyone who can double their cardio endurance in a week and a half. And even though the workouts start at 20 second intervals, the custom workout doesn't go below 30, so you can't even do a custom workout to try and catch up.
Great Product I have to say in the vast expanse of fitness apps, this one is a breath of fresh air. In most apps, they simply tell you what you already know and you spend more time clicking at the screen entering things than getting a workout. I like the way it is automated and simple, straightforward. Honestly almost ALL fitness apps are a joke because the apps don't get results, YOU actually getting up and doing the workouts and pushing yourself does. I don't think any Elite athlete either used one of these apps when they began, or use any of these apps now in their prime. Having said that, a real breath of fresh air and something new to try to keep fitness at peak level. Great job!!
Great app...could use a tweak First off, this app is great and gamefying the Spartacus workouts is an awesome idea. But even the best Spartacus app on the market (which this is) could use a tweak or two. My only gripes are (1) scheduling workout is not possible which means I can't get a notification of an upcoming workout (2) The intensity ramps up without feedback from the user on how he workout went.(3) a notification of the impact of the next scheduled workout on player level would be a good addition too.
Great app, easy to use! The only thing I would like us that it tells you the next exercise right after you finish the previous so you can get ready. But that's just a minor, nit picky thing that I'm sure won't matter after a few more times doing the workout.
Please fix - screen goes off and app stops This app would be perfect if when you hit the button to dim your screen the app didn't stop or pause. It messing up the workout if you hit the button while working out and it stops. Can this be fixed?
Love it. If you want to challenge yourself this is it. I've been lazy mainly working my upper body and cardio. Running for a mile and right to working out the upper body. I thought I was in good shape. Nope! I did this workout 15 pounds and almost didn't finish. I LOVE IT!
