Here is a brief tutorial around each area of the SWEAT App to help you get started :)
Workouts & Activity
The SWEAT App provides you with recommendations on how to complete both resistance and cardio training.
A tally of your completed workouts can be found in your Sweat Summary and Manage my program - here you can also manually add complete/incomplete workouts
The weekly session recommendations are listed within the Activity section of your planner. You can use this function by ensuring you have your 'sync to calendar' switched 'on'.
Throughout the App our trainers suggests doing your Resistance training (circuits) on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and then doing LISS* and HIIT* workouts on the alternative days.
More information about how to complete LISS and HIIT can be found within the Education section of your App.
Now that you have arranged your timetable, you can swipe left on your dashboard through Resistance, Cardio, Recovery workout option. Select your workout, following the guidelines below.
The Resistance circuits are all 28 minutes long in total.
You need to complete the four exercises in each circuit as many times as you can in 7 minutes.
Try and exercise for the entire 7 minutes - you stop when the timer stops! Just follow the number of reps written next to each exercise.
SWEAT has multiple trainers and programs as you will see on you dashboard, there are More Workout options. Should you wish to add/alternate your Resistance workout for the day you are able to select another trainer to compete one of their workouts.
Keeping in mind to stick to your programs' recommendations as closely as possible. Completed workouts will not be added to your sweat summary or to your activity/planner
To follow another trainer's program, select your Profile icon located on the top right corner of your screen.
From here you are able to select Manage My Program. Next you can chose Select Program to see an overview of all trainers.
Suggested Meal Plans is also a feature of the SWEAT App. To take advantage of this feature, select food on you dashboard.
To provide variety, your meal plans will change daily and weekly to correspond with your new workout week.
Each new week will begin on Sunday at midnight depending on the timezone you have set.
To view previous weeks, and following weeks of meals, simply go to the 'Menu' and select 'Food'. You should then be able to scroll back and forth and view your weekly meals.
Keep a record of your progress by recording your progress photos within the Progress tab on your dashboard.
To keep a copy of your photos stored to your device outside of the SWEAT App, please ensure that you have allowed SWEAT access to your gallery.
