Sworkit builds randomized circuit training 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, you don't have to do any other planning or have any extra equipment.
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 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.
Workouts can be boring or they can be fun. The reason Sworkit employs randomization is to give the user a new experience every time they workout. This allows for more motivated sessions and provides excitement, and sometimes even pain. Pain is good.
Circuit training has been proven to provide highly efficient workouts at a fast pace. Sworkit allows you to choose the total amount of time you want to work out and provides you with the proper exercise timing, rest, and transitions.

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. He has had help along the way from some great friends in San Francisco, CA and Arlington, VA. Walking the walk, he is the person you see in each exercise image and video. The beautiful British voiceovers are not his however. Those are courtesy of his wonderful and supportive wife. Ryan's personal fitness routine includes Sworkit, orienteering, and soccer. You can read more about his journey to learn coding over at Codecademy.com. If you ever want to learn more about the experience of creating an app, or for ideas on how to stay motivated to workout, please feel free to send an email at anytime. Email Ryan
