No problem, swap it out for another more appropriate workout whenever you want. You can also re-add the same workout on different days, saving you time by not having to search through our database with thousands of workouts. Simply tap on the workout you want to reuse in the calendar and select a day to re-add that same workout. You can easily adjust the schedule of any workout by tapping the green bar at the bottom of the screen ‘Scheduled for Day X’. Once you’ve selected the day you want, save your changes by tapping the ‘+’ symbol to the bottom right.

Advanced Enrollment Customization

Once custom training programs have been shared with clients, they can select their preferred start date on the calendar. At the same time, they can uncheck any of the days of the week when they cannot work out. The program will automatically take this into account and customize the schedule to fit their needs.Workout Trainer by Skimble: Advanced Program CreationDon’t forget to set your preferred workout time! You can always adjust this later on by going to the ‘Enrolled Program’ screen and tapping the ‘Settings’ icon at the top right.

Workout Trainer by Skimble: Trainer Spotlight: Melissa MoranMeet Melissa, Skimble‘s featured Trainer! This fit mama’s journey started with a love for sports and exercise. Her contagious drive to live a healthy, active lifestyle has motivated everyone who crosses her path.

Tell us a bit about your background and where you’re from?

Melissa: Hey, I’m Melissa from St. Louis! I’m a wife, mother to 4 hilarious kids and have been an online personal trainer since 2012. 

What inspired you to become a personal trainer?

Melissa: Fitness has been a lifelong journey for me. It started with my love for sports and exercise. Yes, I’ll admit it, I do love to exercise. Particularly running, which led to a passion for making a difference and helping others with their own health.Workout Trainer by Skimble: Trainer Spotlight: Melissa MoranWhat made you decide to certify with NASM?

Melissa: I like their training model and their reputation was the best! Not only am I a Certified Personal Trainer, but I also hold Weight Loss and Fitness Nutrition specializations through NASM.

Melissa: For me, I love to try other trainer’s programs to mix up my own daily fitness routine. With my business, most of my clients are busy moms so if we can’t connect online, then they know they can get on my profile to find a quick, effective workout.

What’s your favorite feature in the app?

Melissa: My favorite feature is the community. It’s very motivating! I love seeing all of the activity from workout updates. You don’t feel alone in your fitness journey with this app 🙂

What keeps you motivated to stay fit yourself? As a mom of 4, it must be quite the challenge!

Melissa: My family is my WHY! I feel good when I exercise and I need all the energy I can get to keep up with 4 kids. I also want to be a great role model and lead by example. I truly believe that taking care of yourself is part of taking care of your family.Workout Trainer by Skimble: Trainer Spotlight: Melissa MoranFinally, can you share a secret health/fitness tip with the Skimble community…

Melissa: I say this over and over, be patient! You’ll want to give up at some point. Please don’t, just be patient and stick with it. Take it one meal at a time and one workout at a time.

Thanks for sharing with us, Melissa, we’re excited to see what the future will bring for you and your fit fam!
