Circuits with a side of sass
I’ve been using the 7 minutes in hell several times a week for a couple weeks now. Having sound cues and Carrot announcements for the exercises, break times, and rest times makes it a lot easier to do circuits— you don’t have to think, just follow the directions. It gets my heart rate up and gets a good exercise in quickly. The first few times after the intro lesson I would forget that “Kowtows to Kuthulu” means pushups and so forth and have to wait for the image of my meatbag avatar to show me what to do. I enjoy the conceit, though— its more fun running in place if you imagine evil ostriches are after you. And Carrot’s snarky remarks liven up exercise time. I’m definitely getting the expansion pack of more exercises soon.
There is a but...
This app is hilarious and definitely makes you want to come back to it (whoever heard of WANTING to workout?!). There are however a few things about it that are not so great.
The actual workout: The first time that I completed this workout, I felt great… Until the next day. I was quite sore and could barely move around without hurting myself. The workout was amazing otherwise.
The money situation: I figured out a few days after using this app that you can only do one workout every single day, meaning that the only workout that the app comes with is the 7 Minutes in Hell workout unless you want to pay for more. I found that quite disappointing, since I had to pay $3.99 for the app in the first place. Apparently all of the CARROT³ apps are this much, and I haven't downloaded in any of the other ones since I have a feeling that they will be quite disappointing as well. Great app otherwise.

Silly human, if you're a fat, lazy meatbag then *of course* you're going to feel like crap the day after your first ever strenuous workout.
Good for inspiration to continue.
These are at an intermediate level of difficulty, so if you are out of shape the pace will feel fast. But the dialog is amusing and keeps you inspired to come back for more. The exercises are ones you already know, so there is little learning curve.
The weight tracking combined with a classic routine makes this worthwhile even if you don't want to miss a rep here and there laughing at the commentary.

Did I give you permission to laugh instead of doing your exercises? Get back to work, chubby human!
