Description of App

* No workout equipment & just minutes a day
* Fun achievements and rewards to keep you motivated
* Based on the 7-minute workout featured in NY Times Magazine

YOUR CHALLENGE: 7 minutes for 7 months
Using nothing more than a chair, a wall, and your own body weight, the 7-minute workout is based on scientific studies to provide the maximum benefit of working out regularly in the shortest time possible.

Just like your favorite video game, Seven starts you off with three lives. Skip a day and lose a heart, but miss 3 workouts in a month and your progress resets to zero and it's game over! Work out every day for 7 months to achieve 100% and become a 7/7 champion.

Seven also motivates you toward your goal with positive reinforcement:

— Unlock achievements from Novice to Athlete as you vary your routine
— Earn rewards and health-related giveaways (US only)
— Set up daily reminders, or when you've missed too many workouts
— Track your progress visually on color-coded graphs and calendars
— Share your success with friends by e-mail, text message, Twitter or Facebook

Seven guides you through the 7-minute workout with precise illustrations, visual timers, spoken instructions and even tactile feedback to switch between 30 seconds of intense exercise and 10 seconds of rest.

— No internet access needed. Work out anytime, anywhere!
— Play songs from your favorite music app in the background
— Fitness enthusiasts can do multiple circuits for longer workouts
— Armband friendly: vibration or voice mode indicates when to switch exercises
— Beautifully designed for both iPad and iPhone in a single app
— iCloud sync to keep your progress up-to-date on all your devices
— The "Learn" tab includes pro tips on how to perform each of the 12 exercises

Now all of us, busy as we are, can stay in shape!

The app is normally a paid app from my understanding. But the day I posted this it is free.

For those who may have seen my previous comments on this app by the developer perigee I made a mistake and didn't pay attention and got another app with the same name but by bitesize. lelia

Thank you. Maybe we posted around the same time. Either way whatever happened at least your review has the proper app description in it. And the rest my review covers. I wonder if the apple vis editors can combine our posts into one somehow. Ah well. I in any case appreciate your post because you at least have the proper app description in there.

Hey - I haven't been able to read the descriptions of anything beyond "Jumping Jacks" under the Full Body workout in the "Learn" tab - I do flick right to cycle through the different buttons, though double tapping on them just awlays opens to the first exercise.

Is there some sort of trick I'm missing to open the proper exercise? I want to try this, but I wanted to read the descriptions of some of the unfamiliar exercises before I started.

It doesn’t show you how to do certain exercises, it will tell you what to do but it doesn’t tell you how to do it. Is there a way to fix that? I really hope we can fix it as quick as possible
