An Intense Workout In My Pocket

If you know me  you know I love my iPhone and iPad.  I’m also a fan of cool fitness apps, and I just found a new one called 5 Round Fury.  Has anyone else tried it?

It costs 99 cents in the App Store on my phone, and it offers endless workout combinations based on your fitness level.  It’s also convenient because I can use it anywhere.

The workouts are intense, and the goal is to do each move for 60 seconds with a 10 second break.  I’ve been obsessed with planks lately, and this app has already pushed me beyond my limits.  It’s incredible!

In addition to the workouts the app also offers support from the doctor who created it, and I can share my workouts online.  My Facebook and twitter friends know how much I like that too.  😉

Have you tried the app?  If so, what do you think?



This week’s Calphalon Challenge winner is Janna from View from the 512! Congrats, Janna!  Congrats on winning a Calphalon Unison 8-qt. Stock Pot! Check your e-mail later today for information on collecting your prize!

Now we’ve reached the final week of the challenge, and in addition to the standard rules our goal this week is to try a new recipe.  Good luck everyone! =)

    I’m a little wary of fitness apps like this, not for any other reason than I can’t see them working for me. I get watching and following along to a DVD, but don’t think I could do anything with a phone app as a guide.

    Having said that, I get that some people can, and it’s great that it has already pushed you to do more.

    Maybe there’s room for me to be convinced?

    I’m going to have to try this, I’m looking for ways to spice up my workouts, and this looks like it could be fun. My only concern is if it will be strenious, because I have knee issues.

    I’ll have to look for a droid app.
    @Mike-There are several good phone apps for tracking your workouts, interval training, etc. You should give them a try.
    I use Cardio Trainer, Endomondo, Run/Walk Interval and a couple of others.
