HYLETE's circuit training program designed for a lifestyle of functional fitness that strives to maximize its effectiveness through a combination of endurance, strength, and cardio circuits while minimizing the time commitment required. The energy and effort must be put into the program to achieve the results, but the goal is to make the time spent as efficient as possible.
The primary goal of functional fitness is to facilitate a healthier, happier life. So, for that reason, we have created the following axioms that are applied to the Daily Circuit
1. Create camaraderie
2. Minimize the risk of injury
3. Focus on basic movements that emulate real-life situations and/or facilitate real-life needs
The HYLETE Daily Circuit is designed to be executed at 80-90% of max output so that participation in other athletic and/or fitness endeavors can be intermixed and enjoyed and NOT be impeded due to excessive soreness or injury.
Moreover, the secondary goal is to enhance other endeavors. While the HYLETE Daily Circuit can be a great addition and/or entry into other Athletic Endeavors, it does not attempt to make someone a better Powerlifter, Olympic Lifter, Gymnast, Bodybuilder, etc. These endeavors along with other ones like Football, Baseball, Basketball, Track, Golf etc. have very specific needs and require a magnitude increase in time commitments to fully achieve even intermediate proficiency and, in many cases, do so without increase in potential injuries.
Each Daily Circuit consists of a series of Movements, where a Movement is simply an exercise that has a defined set of standards and reps.
When you complete each defined Movement (typically there will be 6 per Daily Circuit) you have completed one Loop of the Circuit. Each Circuit has an allocated time period, and the goal is to complete as many Loops as possible.
The equipment required for the HYLETE Daily Circuit includes:
1 Jump Rope
3 Wall Balls
4 Abdominal Mat
5 Pullup Bar
7 Standard Barbell with Bumper Plates
9 Running/Walking Space
Most gyms will have these pieces of equipment readily available, and when not, other items can be substituted to complete the circuits.
The Daily Circuit is also comprised of a warm-up and cool down period. The warmup routine is designed to be dynamic movements coupled with lower rep counts of the Circuit itself.
The Cool Down routine is designed to allow the body to cool down more gradually and statically stretch muscles while they are warm and pliable. Prior to the Cool Down routine there is an optional Bonus Terminal that is designed to allow you to get some other key benchmark exercises completed, but can also be skipped if you haven’t the energy or time to do so.
The typical HYLETE Daily Circuit follows this time allotment:
Warmup: 15 minutes
Circuit Time: 20 minutes
Bonus Terminal: 5 minutes
Cool Down: 5 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes

Ratings and Reviews
Great Substitute for the Box/ Travelling
I love everything Hylete touches. I travel a lot for work and find myself spending hundreds for home box membership and $50/$60 on box drop-ins. His app is an amazing substitute for The timer function, rep count option, and bonus makes the workout finally fun effective. I’ve used a lot of other apps but they all have limitations. Even my wife, and ultra runner with limited cross fit experience, loves this circuit app.
Great guide to a good workout
Simple easy to use workout app. Clean UI that allows you to get right to the workout. The workouts themselves are fun and keep you moving without tiring out one certain muscle group. I would like to see a little more variety of workouts, but my guess is that more things will be added as the app ages. I love doing a circuit every morning to get the blood going.
Love this app!
I have been using this app since it first came out and I love it!! The circuits are challenging and can be modified to more or less challenging too. I do these circuits about twice a week as a compliment to my heavy lifting and running. They are fun and the app is easy to use. Just like Hylete’s clothing, this app is of the best quality. Thanks Hylete!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
