About

Sworkit provides video guided workouts to keep you motivated to exercise and stay fit anywhere.

What is it?

Sworkit builds strength, yoga, cardio and stretching workouts that you can do anywhere. You just choose which part of your body you want to work on and how long you have to work out, and Sworkit takes care of the rest. By providing an actual workout and taking you through the motions with guided videos, you don't have to do any other planning or have any extra equipment.

Why Sworkit?

We all have the desire to take care of ourselves and we know that we need fitness to stay healthy. But it's easy to come up with excuses: "I don't have the time". "I have to watch the kids". "I don't like gyms". "I don't want to buy new equipment". "I get bored too easily". "I travel for work". "I don't know where to start". Sworkit is here to make sure that none of these excuses apply and we can all get a simple workout in whenever we want.

Ryan Hanna - Lead Developer

Sworkit was designed and created in 2012 when Ryan wanted a project to work on in order to teach himself to code. He hoped to combine his fitness knowledge from being an officer in the US Army with his technical knowledge from being a Network Administrator. Sworkit was born out of the desire to create a very simple tool that would help people at any level get fit or fitter. You can read more about his journey to learn coding over at Codecademy.com.
