Love this app! Easy to use, it helps me keep track of workouts, helps motivate me - especially because I can’t get to my fitness/ martial arts classes due to the pandemic....and I have won gift cards for just being active!

Useful app

Overall super useful app to start your fitness journey. The best way to start is to sign up for one their challenges and/or their weekly draws. The app requires periodic refreshes (close and reopen) to sync with your other apps but it’s also dependant on the app or device you’re using. However, the app can sync with most health apps unlike other healthy/athletic apps.
