lolo, developers behind popular fitness apps like Easy Abs and Easy Arms (two apps that have helped me get back into shape), have released 7-Minute Workout (High Intensity Training) for the iPhone. In case you’re not familiar, the 7 Minute Workout first appeared on NY Times and is “based on science”, where you do 12 sets of exercises in 7 minutes. It does get pretty intense during this short span – especially if you push yourself. Since reading about it a month ago, I’ve done a number of these 7 minute workouts and I find them great when you don’t have a whole lot of time to exercise. Compared to the many 7 minute workout apps that have sprung up on the App Store, lolo’s is probably the most involved of the bunch.
lolo tries to improve upon the premise of the 7 Minute workout by implementing additional features not found in other similar apps. For starters, you get to choose between Beginner, Intermediate, or Advanced levels, then you select exactly what types of equipment you have at your disposal. There are 200 unique exercises and each include video, voice and coaching pointers. In order words, this app is completely customizable based on your preferences.
7-Minute Workout (High Intensity Training) is now available for the iPhone for $1.99.
7-Minute Workout (High Intensity Training)
Get a complete full body workout in just 7 minutes! Based on the "Scientific 7 Minute Workout" originally published in ACSM's Health and Fitness Journal and seen in the NY Times, but improved upon by the expert trainers at lolo.
One size does not fit all so we took the principles of this fast and effective workout and tuned it so it could fit anyone's needs. Some people may find the original 7 Minute Workout too hard while others may find it too boring. We fine tuned this workout so anyone can get a safe, effective, and challenging workout, no matter their fitness level in just 7 minutes!
Every workout will be customized to your fitness level and to the equipment you have available. Each exercise includes a video you can view DURING YOUR WORKOUT, so that you can always double-check your form.

7 Minute Workout dynamically changes the beat of YOUR music to perfectly match your movements. Research shows that music distracts the brain during exercise and faster music causes people to accept and even prefer a greater degree of effort. This means you will work harder without trying (or without even feeling the difference), you will get better results from the increased effort, and most importantly, the time will fly by.
lolo Connect allows you to save your fitness results to the cloud, track your progress across lolo apps, and share your success with friends and family through social media.
INTERACTIVE PERSONAL TRAINER
7 Minute Workout features an interactive personal trainer whose voice guides you through each workout, giving you the tips you need to get the most out of your workout and the motivation to keep going no matter how tough it gets.
