7 Minute Workout Challenge is created by Fitness Guide Inc. It costs $1.99 and is available on the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.


The idea behind the workout plan this app promotes is high intensity, quick breaks and maximum effort. Instead of going to the gym and working out and taking 2 minute breaks every three minutes, here you’re taking 10 second breaks.
According to the app, it’s efficient at getting non-athletes in shape. However this app isn’t built to boost an athlete’s performance. It’s to turn you (or your kids) into non-couch potatoes. If you’re already active then this app will not benefit you.

The Good:

There are less than 20 exercises you have to remember, so it’s not complicated to follow these steps. Before working out you can also see a video, image and written explanation of what needs to be done.

When you start the workout you have a voice guiding you through breaks and exercises. All you need is a chair and a wall, and you can follow this program. Or like in our test video, we used a tree and stepping stones.

The Bad:

Absolutely nothing. This app even has a calendar that lets you track your activity across the months.


If you’re not committed enough to go to the gym, or if you can’t afford it, then if you follow this program every day it should boost your health and active level. However don’t expect it to give you abs or anything. It’s not called Ab Challenge, it’s called 7 Minute Workout Challenge. Other than that, it’s worth it if you meet the criteria above.
