I would love to track our workouts! Just because i didnt use a workout on this app, doesnt mean i didnt workout. If we could input what we did without having to make a workout each time that would be great.

19 Apr
Good suggestion, even i would like such an option..
19 Apr
That's what i was thinking also.
20 Apr
Good idea, but I kinda think people will abuse it to post random stuff
21 Apr
If you're a pro+ member, you can create workouts.  I'm not sure about Pro, but I think so.  I work out every day at the gym, and I made workouts for all my common activities.  I run the workout in Skimble while I do it at the gym, and then comment on it with number of sets/reps/calories burned/distance covered - whatever is relevant.  Check my profile if you want to see examples.  Hope this helps.

You can create 3 wo as free member and unlimited ones as pro. Also you can ask your friends to create the one you need;-)

So I don't know if this is the right place to post this, but a few days ago I noticed my pro+ wasn't working so I decided to cancel it so I could subscribe again hoping that would fix it and now whenever I click to subscribe it says "loading" forever.. It just won't load. Tried with both wifi and 3G, nothing helps. I do have money on my account so that's not the problem.

Also another thing, I noticed that some topics in the forums are not accessible when you're not subscribed. Is it supposed to be this way? I find that kinda weird... Cause if you're paying for it, wouldn't it make more sense that more people could reply to your questions and topics?

21 Apr
Sorry about this problem - are you on an old version of the Android app? Google updated their payments system and if you are still on version 5.7 then you need to upgrade in order to make new purchases. Some of our forum topics are monitored by our certified personal trainers and are PRO only. They come up in the feeds though - sorry for any confusion about that. Please email support if upgrading the app doesn't fix your problem. Thanks!
21 Apr
Yes, I'm on 5.7. Shame, cause I can't update this app at the moment because I don't have enough space on my phone memory. Thanks for the answer though, at least I know what the problem is now !
21 Apr
Ah, too bad. BTW, you can also upgrade via our website and the old version of the app will continue working even if you can't upgrade for a while. Thanks for your support.
21 Apr
Oh okay! Good idea

I've been experiencing problems with the sync function.  When I'm working out and can't connect, the app saves my workout locally as expected.  However, it doesn't upload them automatically when I have coverage again.  When I remember to manually sync (sometimes a few days later), the app dumps all the workouts saved locally onto my profile, with no reflection of when they were completed.  So I end up with 20 workouts, apparently all completed at the same time, even tho they were done on several different days. 

It makes it very difficult to track progress, and/or makes it look like I'm posting falsely.  It would be far more useful if it uploaded then as soon as I was connected (or perhaps when connected to Wi-Fi, if potential data charges are a concern).  And if it accurately reflected when the workouts were actually completed. 

Thanks :)

24 Apr
Hm, interesting. We'll take a look. Thanks for bringing this to our attention!
27 Apr
Hey Dominic, does this only happen with certain workouts or is there anything notable when it happens vs when it doesn't?
27 Apr
I haven't noticed any particular pattern regarding which workouts are affected. It isn't an issue I encounter all the time, since I usually have network coverage when I exercise. As far as the most recent times it has happened, I've done a variety of workouts before syncing, and all seem to have been treated in the same way by the app: all appear on my profile marked with the time they were synced, rather than when they were actually completed.
21 May
I would like feedback on this as well - I've been experiencing the same problem for about a week. Each of the missing workouts were two different workouts that I had downloaded to my device in anticipation of shotty internet connection over the past week.
21 May
Hi guys, yes unfortunately this is the way it will appear upon sync. We're sorry for the inconvenience, as we understand it appears oddly like you just did a bunch of workouts simultaneously. We'll add this to our Feature Request list to see if this is something we can update in a future release. Thanks for your feedback!

First off all: Thank you very much for this great app.
I started using it two weeks ago and I really love it.

I've got two suggestions regarding workouts I saved offline:
1. Is there a way to delete a workout I downloaded? I downloaded some workouts that include equipment I don't own and I would like to take these off my offline-list. I've only found the option to delete all offline workouts, but thats not what I want to do.
2. Could you add a feature to sort offline workouts into categories? I have downloaded a lot of workouts (because my internet connection is to slow for streaming) and don't want to scroll through all of them to find the workout I want to do.

28 Apr
Hi Blub, glad you like it! Unfortunately we don't have a feature where you can delete just one workout -- you have to clear your cache but this deletes ALL your saved workouts. Also, we're definitely exploring the idea of sorting offline workouts so we'll keep you posted! Thanks!

Is there a way to make a playlist of workouts so I can do them in a row without having to remember how to find it before I continue my workout?

Also, I'm having trouble connecting/syncing this app's  Schedule feature with my device's calendar, are there links to any help topics on that?

Thank you.

06 Jul
This isn't a feature we support right now, but we'll be sure to add your vote to that feature request!
07 Jul
It's a great idea and fits to the one I've asked for. A list of wo for a day or week instead of only using the calendar app.

A tab that has all the programs that you have done so far (not just the active ones you are doing). It would be nice to keep track and also to see your progression on that section.

A notification tab in the app so we can see all the notifications we receive other than seeing them on our phone notification tab. I feel like i miss out on alot of notifications for some reason.

05 Jul
I support u idea
05 Jul
Agreed!
05 Jul
True. I decided to recieve hundreds of emails just so I can check a notification that has already been replaced by a new one
05 Jul
I was doing the email thing but stuff that. It did my head in :/
05 Jul
Great idea. We're all.missing so much infos, I'm pretty sure.

Integration with other sport trackers like Garmin connect, runkeeper, endomondo to pull data from them to skimble.

On skimble activity tracker indicate the real lenght of the activities, now if I do 7.57km it will say I have done 7...

05 Jul
But i love workout trainer very much :-)
05 Jul
Integration push to myfitnesspal
05 Jul
Having the history list of programs already done when you are pro+ account
05 Jul
Oh and fix the editor for posting in the forum, it is not possible to post photo in a post directly, doesn't work. Tried different brothers but no success.
06 Jul
Hi there, thanks for your feedback! We've added your suggestions to our Feature Request list for you so hopefully we can support these in the future.

If you're part of a team to be able to communicate through the actual mobile app rather than having to open a browser page.

05 Jul
Yes! At least the team board...! Other things like the update tab, progress one not so much, but at least the team messages!
05 Jul
Exactly Miha! It would would be fantastic. As it stands,I have to keep logging in even if I have a separate page open as it logs me out continuously.
06 Jul
We will see what we can do to add team features in-app. Thanks!

Still wish we could make categories for our liked workouts, it's just really hard to find the workouts I wanna do at a certain point. Which also ties into the search function.. It's honestly not very good. I can search for a specific workout that I know exists and I get completely unrelated results.. Which is also another reason why I have so many liked workouts, I'm interested in trying them but I'm afraid I won't find them again later. Hope that makes sense :)

05 Jul
I was thinking this too the other day
05 Jul
Yeah, it would be so useful ^^
06 Jul
We will see what we can do-- thanks for the suggestion and up-votes!
07 Jul
Fully agree Silje. I have asked for this before and still hope we get it

I suggest in the inbox icon to see 2 lists of (online community / online friends) so we can chat online instant messages which can be easier and great for motivational purpose! Like a short example
Miss X(online): hello
Mr X (online): hey beautiful how are you
Miss X(online): I must workout but i am feeling lazy :(((
Mr X(online): lets workout together.... gooooooooo !!! Come on. You are strong.
This way skimblers will communicate easily and motivate instantly online each others!

07 Jul
Indeed, and preferably also which programs.

We should be able to earn stars or trophies for staying dedicated the amount of work out that are completed to add with our level I think it would be another way to motivate

07 Jul
I agree with you Randy... myself when i am rewarded i work even harder. Nice idea abt trophies and stars :)
07 Jul
Thank you very much. I just really like to track my progress and accomplishment seeing where I started from are how for I've come also motivate me you just keep going

I think it has been noted already. But, we really need a way to group our created/liked wo's.  Kind of like menu > submenu.

The current views are messy, ni way to sort.

13 Jul
We hear ya-- we'll add your up-vote to that feature request. Thanks!

I know you have a lot of exercises but can we find a way to add exercises by us users? Like dancer push ups and other great ankle and foot training moves.

18 Jul
Free user can create 3 own workouts and prem members as much as they want. If you add exercises that don't exist, just describe what to do.
01 Aug
@Heiko S No, there isn't a 3-workout limit. It probably lets you only create workouts, say, once per month.

When i create a workout sometimes i just want to add a rest or a transition inbetween 2 exercises but you can't do that . Also i would love to know half way through a workout how many calories i've burned would be good if the trainer could tell you this, and would also love to know my total calorie burn at the end of the day too . Thanks :)😄

18 Jul
Total calorie burn at the end of a day is a good idea:) What do you mean adding rests/transitions? You always can add them
21 Jul
I just want to be able to add a rest without having to change anything:-)
21 Jul
I would love to know that to how many calories I burned for all day thanks heiko

The second feature is already there.

When creating workouts, I would like a drag and drop facility to reorganize the exercises. I would like possibilities to duplicate some exercises as well.

On android device, when I get skimble mail notification I would like the link to open the apps rather than Internet browser. This feature is working for my Sony Xperia z3 tablet compact but not my phone (LG g4)

I would like a tab to get all notifications in the app.

18 Jul
Agree with all you said. Especially to duplicate exercises would be perfect! Drag and drop is possible though, just click on the exercise you want to move or delete.
18 Jul
If I click on the exercice, I get 2 choices: delete or move up/down. I can only move it one step up or down at a time and so have to do lots of clicks to reorganise. It is not a real drag and drop at least on android devices
19 Jul
Thanks for the suggestion! We'll see what we can do to integrate this feature in the editing process.
21 Jul
Great. Thank youuu
21 Jul
I agree too like a copt/paste function. And drag/drop. I was thinking the same. What version of android do you have hyp? I'm pretty sure you can customize what your phones opens up with in the defaults l.

It would be great if we could see a difference between already red and unred messages.

My dashboard tells me an unred message but I can not find it....

23 Jul
In the app the unread ones appear with a darker background, if you can't see any go back a page or two

I would like to mark some workouts other do like watching topics here in forum. Often we have great talks and discussion, but they are lost with all new workouts coming up.

21 Jul
I recieve emails with comments so I can keep up more easily... It drives me crazy sometimes though and in my case I would like to be able to "un-follow" certain discussion without the need to remove the like I gave or the comment I posted.
22 Jul
That's what I do too. I also get the emails, but often it's so much that I still lose some of the infos.

How about a feature where we create a plan for all the workouts we want to do on that specific day so once you've completed one you can just move on to the next instead of having to search through numerous workouts for it?

21 Jul
Yes, agree. Some other and I have asked for that, so it's a sign more want to have it.
21 Jul
Oh a play list sounds nice. Gives me ideas about about Spotify integration lol
21 Jul
Yes, I was thinking about playing them like a playlist or something too!! That would be awesome!!!!!! Tried scheduling in my phone's calendar but it's still not that easy.
