About

Sworkit provides randomized circuit training workouts to keep you motivated to exercise and stay fit anywhere.

What is it?

Sworkit builds randomized circuit training workouts that you can do anywhere. You just choose which part of your body you want to work on and how long you have to work out, and Sworkit takes care of the rest. By providing an actual workout and taking you through the motions, you don't have to do any other planning or have any extra equipment.

Why Sworkit?

We all have the desire to take care of ourselves and we know that we need fitness to stay healthy. But it's easy to come up with excuses: "I don't have the time". "I don't like gyms". "I don't want to buy new equipment". "I get bored too easily". "I travel for work". "I don't know where to start". Sworkit is here to make sure that none of these excuses apply and we can all get a simple workout in whenever we want.

What's with the randomization?

Workouts can be boring or they can be fun. The reason Sworkit employs randomization is to give the user a new experience every time they workout. This allows for more motivated sessions and provides excitement, and sometimes even pain. Pain is good.

Why circuit training?

Circuit training has been proven to provide highly efficient workouts at a fast pace. Sworkit allows you to choose the total amount of time you want to work out and provides you with the proper exercise timing, rest, and transitions.

Step One: Choose a Length

  • Choose how long you want to work out based on how it fits into your schedule.
  • Sometimes it is nice to choose a shorter time period and then start another type of workout when you have completed the first one.
  • Or go for glory with a full 60 minutes.
  • In the Sworkit Pro app, you can also choose to have a delay between exercises to transition.

Step Two: Choose a Workout

  • Upper Body, Core Strength, Lower Body, Cardio, and Stretching provide highly focused workouts.
  • Full Body is Upper Body, Core Strength, and Lower Body
  • Anything Goes is Upper Body, Core Strength, Lower Body, Full Body Stretching , Back Strength, and Cardio
  • Yoga Sequences allow you the opportunity to control the overall speed in order to provide you with a calm relaxing session, or a faster more intense session.
  • Cardio provides heart-pumping exercises that will get your body moving. And sweating. Embrace the Sweat.

Step Three: Exercise

  • Press the start button to begin.
  • The main timer will take you through 30 seconds of each exercise and the timer at the bottom of the screen will track your overall progress.
  • You can skip any exercise if you do not feel comfortable with it, or if you just really loathe it.
  • A 30 second break is provided every 2 to 2.5 minutes based on the length of your workout.
  • Enjoy safely, sweat immensely.

Why can't I download Sworkit Pro?

Due to a critical bug, we had to pull Sworkit Pro from iTunes on 19APR2014. This is very short term and will be available the instant the new update is approved. Hopefully by 21APR2014 at the latest. Please check back.

Can I have break between exercises to transition?

You can turn on a 5 second transition in Sworkit at the 'Minutes' screen by choosing 'Enable Transition'. In Sworkit Pro you can customize this transition pause from 0-20 seconds in length with 'Advanced Settings'.

I can't sync to MyFitnessPal, anything I can try?

Use your MyFitnessPal username and password instead of Facebook to login for the connection. If you are still having trouble, use the 'Reconnect to MyFitnessPal' to revoke access and then connect again.

How can I play music and Sworkit?

Sworkit is designed to work along side any music app you choose. Simply launch your music app and the music you would like to hear, and then go back into Sworkit and you will be able to listen and Swork hard.

What are the top requested features you are working on?

User added exercises, small equipment exercises, cross-device syncing, sharing custom workouts, and non-English translations. Please let me know if one of these is more important to you than any other or if you have other suggestions.

Why is it called Sworkit?

Sworkit /swerk-it/ is a combination of Circuit training and Workout. It Sworks really well. Now go Swork It.

Ryan Hanna

Sworkit was designed and created in 2012 when Ryan wanted a project to work on in order to teach himself to code. He hoped to combine his fitness knowledge from being an officer in the US Army with his technical knowledge from being a Network Administrator. Sworkit was born out of the desire to create a very simple tool that would help people at any level get fit or fitter. He has had help along the way from some great friends in San Francisco, CA and Arlington, VA. Walking the walk, he is the person you see in each exercise image and video. The beautiful British voiceovers are not his however. Those are courtesy of his wonderful and supportive wife. Ryan's personal fitness routine includes Sworkit, orienteering, and soccer. You can read more about his journey to learn coding over at Codecademy.com. If you ever want to learn more about the experience of creating an app, or for ideas on how to stay motivated to workout, please feel free to send an email at anytime. Email Ryan
