Workout Trainer: Discover New Program Features

Workout Trainer by Skimble: Advanced Program Creation and Discovery Features

Whatever your health and fitness goals may be, making a solid plan to reach those goals is the first important step in achieving them. With an increasing number of Trainers and community members using multi-week training programs to schedule their at-home workout routine, we wanted to highlight some exciting new program features in our latest Workout Trainer app update.

Community Created Programs

All Skimble members can now discover more programs to do in the new Community Created programs section. Simply head over to the ‘Programs’ tab at the bottom of your screen, then select ‘Community Created’ from the menu options and browse hundreds of community-created programs shared by Trainers and fellow Skimblers.

Multiple Workouts in One Day

When creating your own custom training programs, PRO+ members can now add more than one workout on a single day in any program. Select a day in your calendar to add a new workout; it doesn’t matter if you already have a workout scheduled on that same day. Simply tap ‘Add a Workout’ to add multiple workouts to any given day in your program. You can move, copy, and delete training days from here – including days with multiple scheduled workouts. By tapping the ‘…’ icon next to each workout, you can also move the individual workout to another day or remove it entirely. If you need a quick refresher on how to create training programs in Workout Trainer, please refer to our short video tutorial on YouTube.

Upload Program Cover Images

Last but not least, PRO+ members can now upload their own cover images to programs they’ve created in the past or are planning to create in the future. Select the program you want to tweak and tap the ‘…’ icon in the top right corner to edit the program. Next, tap the image icon at the top of the screen to choose a cover image from the library on your device. Pro Tip: Select an appealing image that reflects the goal/target of your program so that community members or potential clients are drawn in when they are searching for new programs. Add your program title directly onto your image before uploading with built-in editing tools on your phone or some of these great, free apps.

Workout Trainer by Skimble: Advanced Program Creation and Discovery Features

Many of these advanced features are available on our website too, so feel free to check out our program creation tools on the web if you prefer to work from your desktop or laptop.

With these new program features, the creation and discovery of multi-week training options have never been easier. Having access to a well-thought-out training schedule at your fingertips is the first step in achieving your goals, so what’s holding you back? Workout Trainer enables you to adapt any program to fit your schedule and keeps you motivated to stay on track with workout reminders and community inspiration. Download the latest Android and iOS app update today to start your first training program!

Workout Trainer: How to Prepare for Coronavirus

Workout Trainer: How to Prepare for Coronavirus

As the coronavirus becomes the #1 topic around the globe, we’d like to help our members understand some basic guidelines and tips that can aid in actively reducing our risk of exposure. We all have information coming at us from thousands of sources, but it’s important that we cut through the noise and understand what’s accurate to help protect ourselves and the people around us.

Wash Your Hands

The New York Times recommends that one of the key steps we can all take to reduce the spread of this virus is to simply wash our hands vigilantly. Scrub your hands with soap whenever possible or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol as an alternative. Avoid using your hands when possible and instead try to use your knuckles on knobs/buttons and your shoulders to open doors, etc.

Social Distancing

Stay at home if you can, even if you’re feeling fighting fit! By reducing your interaction with others and avoiding social gathering places in general, you’ll be doing your part to help protect yourself as well as preventing the spread of this virus. If it’s absolutely necessary to go out, avoid using public transportation when possible. If you need to get some fresh air, go for walks alone or with your housemates but remember to keep a distance of six feet apart from others.

Sharing = Caring (Not in this Situation!)

The International Health, Racquet and Sportsclub Association (IHRSA) recommends that gym/studio owners and their members can actively play a part in ensuring the cleanliness of their facilities. If you have equipment at home, make a point of bringing your own props like mats and blocks for your next class. Clean public surfaces and gym equipment with a disinfectant in between classes or sessions.

We’re all doing our part to prevent the spread of the coronavirus as best we can, but most importantly, let’s all try to stay sane and healthy in the midst of this chaos. Join the at-home training movement and use your trusted Workout Trainer app to stay active during lockdown periods or self-isolation. Invite your friends and loved ones to train with you online and send them daily workout challenges to keep them moving while they are stuck inside. Download the free Workout Trainer app on your Android or iOS devices and let’s stay active together!

Be aware of the signs and symptoms of COVID-19 and what to do if symptomatic. Finally, a few myth-busters and supplementation truths to be mindful of.

We are in a difficult time but one thing remains clear — our commitment to raising our health within our community at large. Our collective efforts to stay healthy during this time will carry us through this.
