Dear Skimblers: We hope you are making progress with your fitness resolutions, giant leaps or baby steps! As you may know, working out is generally better with a supportive community and the latest technology innovations to help you along the way. Here at Skimble, we are leading the mobile fitness revolution with mobile coaching tools that take the guesswork out of living an active lifestyle. Skimble’s flagship app Workout Trainer offers thousands of multimedia workouts led by coaches. Equipped with move-by-move video, photo & text instructions, Workout Trainer is accessible for people from all walks of life and athletic backgrounds. Whether you are just getting off the couch or cross training for the sports that you love, Workout Trainer is your go-to mobile exercise companion.
Now if you’ve been following some of the news in the mobile health & fitness space, you may have heard about the latest Samsung Galaxy S5 announcements at the Mobile World Congress. This year Samsung is making a big push in Fitness. Naturally, Skimble partnered with Samsung to provide users with the best workout coaching experience in the world. We are pleased to announce that Skimble’s Workout Trainer is one of the first fitness apps and only workout app currently integrated with Samsung’s S Health™ platform, seamlessly integrated with the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S5 launch (the one that’s IP67 dust and water resistant with a built-in heart rate sensor!), expected in stores April, 2014.
Skimble’s partnership with Samsung helps both current and new users achieve their fitness goals with ease. First, Skimble is completely compatible with Samsung’s S Health™ platform. Users can choose to share data from workouts they completed in Workout Trainer, such as exercise duration and calories burned. This information is automatically synced with your S Health™ profile.
Secondly, for new users who download Workout Trainer for the first time via Samsung Apps on their new Galaxy S5, we are excited to provide them with 6 months free Pro+ premium membership experience (valued at over $40 USD). This Pro+ membership unlocks additional features including HD exercise videos, premium audio coaching assistance, an all access pass to custom training programs, and Pro-only community forums led by certified personal trainers.
All this and more can be in your hands very soon! Samsung is expected to have their beautiful Galaxy S5 in stores April, 2014. For more information about their new devices and wearables, visit samsung.com. For those who are new to Samsung health tools, S Health™ turns your device into a personal-health-management powerhouse. You can track health statistics, like blood pressure, blood glucose levels, and weight. You can view and track environmental conditions, and even track your exercise regimen.
Skimble will be keeping you posted on our Samsung partnership through our blog and social media sites like Facebook & Twitter. Workout Trainer by Skimble is available at no initial cost for Android and iOS smartphones and tablets. So what are you waiting for? Get your workout gear on and let’s do this!
