Good

Ive only used the arms and the butt workouts, butt it sees awesome. I like that you can make custom workouts or use the preset ones. I have nook color and didnt have any problems with it installing.

Nice, for what it does, but dissapointing for what it doesn't.

I'm honestly a bit upset I spent nearly $5 for what I can get on YouTube for free.

Pros:
1) Video of each exercize being preformed to work along with.
2) 5 Second pause before the timer starts for each exercize, allowing user to examine the exercize before doing it.
3) Voice Says each exercize before it starts, so you don't HAVE to look at the screen.
4) Select between 5, 15, and 30 minute exercize routines.
5) Can build your own routines.
6) Coundown timer shows seconds of exercize left, and number of exercizes left in routine.
7) Allows users to pause exercizes at any time.

Cons:
1) DOES NOT COUNT CALORIES BURNED, so of NO HELP with diet and exercize weightloss routines that count calories.
2) Expensive for what you can get on TV, the library, or YouTube for free. I honestly expected more.
3) No allowences made for out of shape / beginners:
3a) Cannot Build a routine of less, or more, than 10 exercizes.
3b) Each exercize seems limited to 25 seconds only.
3c) Cannot create routines less than 5m, or greater than 30m.
4) No chime to indicate when the exercize timer starts or ends.
5) Did I say that calories are not even mentioned in this app?
6) The number of exercizes to choose from are limited, depending on what you are focusing on. Cardio had maybe 30, and Legs had about 10.
7) There is no ability to add custom exercizes or alter the time spent on each exercize.
8) Cannot include one exercize in a custom routine more than once.
9) Does not generate any calories burned data, so of no help with weightloss Apps.

Suggestions:
1) Include an estimate of calories burned. (Shocker, right?)
2) Show that calorie count increasing next to the video and countdown timer.
3) Allow user specified modification of both exercize and routine times, not just a selection of times to choose from.
4) Allow the addition of user specified exercizes (w/optional user supplied photo or video).
5) Allow users to create routines that MIX exercizes from different catagories, so like leg lifts + jumping jacks + sit-ups + etc.
6) How about random routines that pick exercizes randomly, allowing the routines to keep fresh.

Gave it 3 stars because it only does HALF of what I want it to do.

    Pretty good

    Overall a great workout program. There maybe needs to be a little more time between the exercises though to reposition yourself for the next exercise

    Great workout app

    The company who makes this app also makes other apps that are individual body workouts - I had already bought two of them before I saw this one. It includes arm, leg, core, butt, and cardio workouts. I absolutely love this app! It lets me choose the length of my workout and what workouts I want to do. You can do individual workouts or do a full-body workout. The video instructions are easy to see and hear. I recommend this app to anybody - even if you don't need to lose weight, it's a fun (and easy) way to stay fit and active. Best part - I can do everything in this app in my own bedroom!

    Love it

    I don't know why others have problems but have the original version of nook, and it loads and works perfectly. Great workouts, very impressed with the difficulty. It is definitely better to see the exercises done correctly than to try to do them on your own and end up injured from improper form.

    Good and simple workout

    This app gives you a hard workout, but it's also pretty simple. there's no required equipment, although it may be suggested, and i go to a camp in the summer, so it's great to do in the dorm room.
