Does this sound familiar? Business trips and long office hours keep you very busy. Exercise does not necessarily ﬁnd its place in your agenda regularly. It is easy to ﬁnd excuses to not work out. That’s why my favorite app is 7 Minute Fitness Challenge by Fitness Guide Inc.
Available in seven languages, the free version includes 12 exercises. Further exercises are unlocked if you complete challenges like “2 weeks in a row” or “1 month in a row,” or you can buy them. The app describes how to perform the exercises correctly, and also demonstrates them in short videos. 7 Minute Fitness Challenge is based on high-intensity circuit training and backed by peer-reviewed scientiﬁc research. Main beneﬁts: The workouts are easy to perform, are short but intense, and can be done anywhere, even in a hotel room.
The activity calendar tracks your performance and motivates you to carry on. The app acts as your coach, telling you exactly what to do and when, including when it’s time to rest. The results tracker allows you to chart your progress. By progressing with the workout, you unlock achievements that help keep you motivated and also unlock additional exercises.
There is no excuse anymore. Everyone can invest seven minutes a day for training.
