A guilty pleasure here at Heel-Side is taking a time out to watch Shark Tank. During the latest episode a company called Sworkit (Simply Work It) dove into the tank – and the Sharks took the bait.
Sworkit’s premise is to remove the excuse by offering anywhere, anytime workouts. The app allows you to customize video workouts including strength, cardio, yoga, or stretching. Length of workouts range from 5 to 60 minutes. Best part about this app is that if a move is too hard or you’re just not feeling it, skip it and the app selects the next move to keep you moving.
Workouts are curated similar to music playlists – have a favorite move? Add it to a playlist, or choose from standard workout (favorite album).
If you want to pay the $2.99 monthly subscription or $19.99 yearly subscription you can get some great goodies:
- Ad-Free Workouts (this alone had Heel-Side sold)
- Exclusive Low Impact Exercises for Beginners and Older Adults
- Customizable exercise intervals
- Save unlimited custom workouts (plus additional editing capabilities)
- Exclusive pre-built workouts
- “Ask a Trainer” feature
It’s a perfect remedy for every exercise excuse, not to mention an excellently executed platform for usability, functionality, and most importantly, results.
