Guided Workouts in App

A newly redesigned and revamped guided workout system is now available to FitSW trainers. We all know how valuable a guided workout app can be and now you can use FitSW to guide your clients through your workouts! This system will guide your users through their workouts, help them stay on track and log their results. Additionally, it will ensure that they complete the workout in the recommended time. We created this feature previously, but we have now updated it in the FitSW iOS app. We will first talk about how to make this feature available to your clients. 

Setting up Guided Workouts

As the trainer, the first thing you will need to do is make sure that the exercises in your workout are guided workout eligible. That is a fancy way of saying that each exercise has a number inputted for the “Time” and “Rest” fields. In this workout below, there is no value for those fields. Therefore, the app displays that red message stating guided workout mode is not enabled.

Once we enter in numerical values for those fields, we have turned the red message to green. We now see that we have enabled guided workout mode. The numbers inputted represent the number of seconds.

Or they can begin from the start by tapping the “Start Workout” button at the top. Clients can access this screen at any point by tapping the back button. The app has paused the workout and the client can see an overview of the workout.

Once the user begins the workout, they will enter the detail screen. This page will walk the client through the different exercises with a timer. Additionally, it will show the values of reps, sets, or other fields the trainer has set. Finally, it will show a place for the client to put in notes of the set. At the bottom (not shown) the app will show the next upcoming exercise.
