Hi!

I love the community here. People are so nice and you get great advise of how to improve your workouts and results.

I usually run every morning but it was raining today so I decided to try out a skimble workout called "The A-team" even if the workout was good itself I couldn't quite figure out what to do when since it's just rolling between different pictures. What bugged me more was the annoying robot voice...

What's your opinion in skimbles workouts? I look through the workouts and they're good but when you press the start button it doesn't work for me anymore

Upgrade to pro if you want to get rid of the robot voice. Other than that, I don't like all workouts either, but the awesome thing about this app is that it gives you the option to create your own workouts, so maybe you should customize your workout to your liking. Also, it helps to read through the exercises before you start doing them. No use in starting '2 minute full plank' if you don't know how to do a plank. Hope this helps!

Don't worry! At first it might be weird, but then you get used to it! I find the workouts are simply great! 
Ps: try looking at the explanations and images BEFORE starting a new workout, so you already know to do when you're at it! ;)

I have found some great workouts on here but I use the Nike Training app more often...app-wise at least. I do alot of other stuff also...

I created the Bodyweight Intensity because of the lack of decent workouts on the free program. If any circuit seems easy to you, or any workout in a circuit, just double the time.
