No Pain

This is an honest review. I am 62 years old. I downloaded the app months ago and never really did it, finally one morning I decided to try it, it wasn’t hard and it wasn’t easy, but I did shoulders, because my shoulders were hurting. Since it wasn’t as bad as I thought, I decided to try the hips exercises, it hurt, but a good hurt. This is the part that convinced me that I need these stretches, into my THIRD DAY of stretching, I noticed that if I’m sitting for awhile, upon getting up my hips would hurt and I would need to get warmed up first in order to start walking normally, BUT to my surprise, I stood up and started walking with NO PAIN at all, I didn’t notice it at first, but into my fourth step, I stopped and wondered, I sat back down for 10 minutes, got up and thought, I’m going to walk normally and see if there’s pain…there was no pain at all. Listen, I’ve been seeing a chiropractor for over two months now and the pain didn’t even subside, doing the stretches for three days, just hips and shoulders was all I did, and there’s no pain in getting up and walking. As for my shoulders it’s getting better slowly, still some pain, but it’s not stopping me from continuing.

Much more flexible

This app allows you to do the best thing ever it’s called stretching and it’s really good for you and I personally think that this is one of the best stretching apps there is because it is so good stretch after a nice day or in the morning you can also pause this app whenever you like I’ve been having a great time doing this app and it’s been the highlight to my life making me much more flexible and I rate this five stars because it also allows you to be one of the most flexible people in your school and when you do it in the morning, it gets all stretched and ready for the rest of the day and it’s also best for a lot of things has a page when you first login and it has medical conditions and perfect stretching for all those conditions and I hope you will have fun doing this app because it is very fun and it allows you to be much more flexible and it’s really fun to go to work or school every single day by stretching so please download this app because I recommend it for you

Has the potential to be great

This app, like many of the fitness/body wellness apps, has a solid foundation of having different programs that meet different needs — targeting certain body areas, time frames, etc., but there’s no guidance.

For example, when you set up the app, it asks you a variety of questions to learn about you. But it doesn’t really structure a program tailored to you, where you currently are at in your wellness journey, or your needs. You click beginner, but in all of the programs you have five seconds to transition into the next pose/stretch with no auditory or visual guidance as to how to properly do that. It’ll give you five seconds to go from a back bending pose to a lunge pose. That doesn’t make sense nor is it healthy. They have a little button you can click on to read how to properly do a pose but you’d have to stop the timer so you can read without wasting the time you’re given to do the pose. That’s not effective, and one of the reasons I wouldn’t pay for this app.

For beginners, and all levels really, it’s more efficient to be guided in a visual and auditory manner. That makes it more inclusive, mindful, effective and unique.
