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 complete in Workout Trainer, such as exercise duration and calories burned. This information is automatically synced with one’s 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 their official press release. 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!
Tried the ap, like hte workouts, but did not get the 6 motn pro on my s5 nor did it sync to s health. It said it was sending data to s health after hte workout but it does not show in s health.
Sorry to hear that! Please email us at email@example.com and we can get this fixed for you.
I contacted support and got a reply saying to update and then log in with my samsung account from the phone. I tried but it said my gmail address was already in use. The lack of sync with s health was not addressed. The icon shows in s health but workout data, calories burned etc does not sync up.
Same happens to me. I seem to be well logged in with the Samsung account but skimble doesn’t sync the exercises to s health although it says it is syncing.
Is this a known issue?
Hi Jazzy, yes we are aware of this issue and we’re working on a fix for it. We’re so sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience!

Great post – I appreciate the info.
Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this website.
It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s challenging to get that
“perfect balance” between usability and visual appeal.
I must say that you’ve done a awesome job with this.
Also, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Chrome.
Good afternoon. I am running S Health Version 2.5.5.051 on my Galaxy S3. Is Workout Trainer compatible with my S3?
Hi Jeff, yep! You should be good to go. Have fun!
my workout trainer does not count my calories burned nor does it link my calories burned to S Health. What can I do to get these two to work together? They are sync together just the calories burned are my problem. Please help.
Hi there, do you have the calorie counter turned on from your settings? Be sure to update your age, weight, and gender so your count is as accurate as possible. Email us at email@example.com if you need more assistance. Thanks!
Yes the count calories are on, but it’s just not uploading to my S Health.
Has the issue of Skimble exercises not syncing to S health been addressed yet? I have auto sync turned on, and the skimble icon is listed on my s health homepage, but none of the info is syncing at all. I’ve tried backing up and restoring s health twice with no change.
Hi D, we are still awaiting Samsung’s update so unfortunately we’re still in a holding pattern. We’ll let y’all know when it gets released!
I’m not getting 6 moths free and I have a Samsung tab s 10.5 and a galaxy s5
Hi Mikey, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can assist you further.
