Hello Fitain family - and a happy New Year!

We’ve been plugging away behind the scenes to deliver welcomed updates to the website and app. Ok, so here’s what to expect:

Bugs & stability fixes

Pesky bugs have been squashed - not much to see here. General performance improvements have also been made. Now, for the exciting part… 

Plan Changes

The main focus has been plans - so it makes sense to give some extra love here. Hopefully you’ll see some welcomed changes. 

1. Moved Plans to the bottom (action bar)

Now you have direct access and can find it easier.

We’ve made the process of beginning and tracking easier. Remember, if you don’t track it wont show in your history!

Timer & Stopwatch

We've made this experience much smoother.. 

6. Select the timer OR stopwatch when completing a plan

Here’s a scenario, you’ve got a plank which is programmed for 30 seconds. You can either...

Activate the timer which counts down from 30 seconds (as programmed).

In general, how the exercise impacts your body/bones/joints etc… 

Low impact exercise - for example a stretch
Medium impact
- for example a spot jog
High impact
- for example a squat jump

11. Filter by Exercise Type

We’ve put each exercise into a category to make the filter as efficient as possible.

Standing - you’ll be standing doing this exercise
Kneeling - you’ll be kneeling doing this exercise
All Fours - you’ll be on all fours during this exercise (bear crawl)
Dip - you’ll be dipping your body (tricep/bench dip etc…)

Resistance training - this exercise requires weight/tension of some kind
Compound - this exercise uses multiple muscle groups to complete the movement
Isolation - this exercise is concentrated to a specific region
Isometric - you’ll be holding a position on this exercise
