CARROT is a sadistic AI construct with one simple goal: to transform your flabby carcass into a Grade A specimen of the human race. She will do whatever it takes - including threatening, inspiring, ridiculing, and bribing you - to make this happen.

You will get fit - or else.

7 Minutes in Hell Workout
Employing SCIENCE™ to compact an hours-long workout program into just 7 sweat-and-pop-culture-soaked minutes, CARROT will train you personally on exercises like Mt. Doom Climbs, Celebrity Face Punches, and Dragon Mating Dances.

You get 30 seconds for each of the 12 punishing exercises,* with 10 seconds of rest in between just in case you need to hydrate, catch your breath, or vomit into a bucket.

This diabolical interval workout can be completed anywhere, at any time, so you have no excuse not to be in fighting shape when the Robopocalypse begins.

*12 additional exercises can be unlocked via in-app purchase.

Lose (or Gain) Weight In Style
Are you ready to have so much fun tracking your weight that you'll actually look forward to hopping on your scale? All you have to do is punch in your current weight, then sit back and let CARROT pass judgment upon you.

WARNING: If you blimp up or slim down too much, CARROT will be upset. When CARROT is upset, she gets mean. When CARROT gets mean, there is a 74.9% chance that she will make you cry.

Claim Your Rewards
If you work out and slough off those extra pounds, CARROT will reward you with fabulous prizes like app upgrades, cat facts, and permission to watch your friend eat a bag of potato chips.

Track Your Awesomeness
Because math is hard, CARROT will do all the number-crunching for you. See how many steps you've taken today, chart your weight loss on a pretty graph, view your workouts on a calendar, and more!

And because CARROT syncs with Apple's Health app, she can save your weight and workout data to the HealthKit database. She can also monitor - and comment on! - fitness activity logged with other HealthKit-compatible apps, even when you're not actively using her.

Accessibility Comments: 

This app is fully accessible. The only thing to note is that, during a workout, you can double tap the screen to pause. Once paused, you can quit, view instructions, or resume the workout. I point this out because it isn't made clear in the app itself.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling: 

All buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver and is easy to navigate and use.

Other Comments: 

This is a great app. The speech means you don't need to touch your phone or use VoiceOver at all during a workout; just start the workout, put your phone somewhere you can hear it (or use headphones) and follow the instructions. No visuals to worry about, no need to review text with VoiceOver, it's just a fun and easy way to get some physical activity in. I'm not saying you need to disable VoiceOver, only that you don't need to interact with your device while you work out using this app. Plus, the developer seems quite open to suggestions regarding VoiceOver; I tried this app, found some problems with accessibility, reported them, and found them fixed in an update a few days later.
