Don't take our word for it


Love this app. I am working on the pull up program. Love that it includes mobility. Love that there is an assessment before you start. This make it more tailored to what my ability is. There is a video with written instructions for every movement. Even the simplest of movements. This is key to making this helpful to people at all levels.


I'm following the "Get your first pull-up" program and I absolutely love it. I started because with the COVID-19 situatio the gym was not an option and i have some basic equipment at home including a pull-up bar. The program is the perfect balance between mobility, strength, core and crushing your goals! I placed at level two after the initial test and within a few weeks i was able to string two pull-ups from dead hang! Just started level 3 and can't wait to see what happens.
