Remix Workouts App Changes Up Your Routine
March 12, 2012 | Tyler Lacoma
Remix Workouts, which has specialized in "boot camp" fitness sessions for most of its business life, has just released an app that's ideal for athletes looking for a tough bodyweight workout that never gets boring.
How It Works
The free app creates a random fitness circuit every time it's started. The combinations focus on full-body endurance and strength with an emphasis on conditioning. Each exercise includes video and audio with coaching points and motivation to help athletes learn the moves and perform them correctly every time. Optional warm-ups and cool-downs are also provided.
What Sets It Apart
By now, thousands of companies have released workout programs in the iTunes App Store. So what sets Remix apart? One of its coolest features is a video game-style level-up system. Tell the app your fitness level, and it'll throw you exercises with an appropriate level of difficulty. Spend enough time with it and you'll unlock new moves, giving you a sense of achievement. Remix's clean interface and P90X-style timers and progression bars make it extremely easy to use.
The Remix app will definitely change up your workout routines, so you won't get bored. Bonus: your muscles continue to get stretched in new, productive ways. Of course, it eliminates most excuses for not working out, since you can perform its routines virtually anywhere. See the app for yourself in the iTunes App Store.
Basketball players: after you download the Remix Workout app, check out STACK's own ATTACK app. It will take you through a grueling 12-week workout plan from Tim Grover, owner of ATTACK athletics and trainer to elite pros like Michael Jordan, Dwyane Wade and Kobe Bryant.
