App Review: Fitness Appz

You're sitting on the couch, reading catching up with the latest on your favorite webOS community site (hint, you're probably reading it this very moment). You notice that it's Fitness Month at Mobile Nations, and while we're approaching the end of February, you do kind of feel the motivation to get into better shape. The problem is, you haven't a clue of where to start. You can go ahead and check out apps like Couch to 5K to get you out and running, and that helps with some of that extra weight around the middle and your endurance, but what about getting to the point of being 'strong'? That's another matter all together, and that's where Infinite Appz's conglomerate guide Fitness Appz comes into play.

Built on the same principles as Couch to 5K, Fitness Appz relies on interval training to ramp you up from barely being able to do one push up to knocking out fifty without stopping. Six-week courses are also provided for sit-ups, chin-ups, and squats, getting you from flabby to fantastic (or at least in better shape) with just three-days-a-week for six weeks.

In reality, Fitness Appz combines four of Infinite Appz's interval training apps into one super-app. Individually, 100 Pushups, 200 Situps, 200 Squats, and 20 Chinups each retail for $1.99, while Fitness Appz wraps them all together for… $4.99 (there's also a $4.99 Fitness Appz HD for TouchPad - it's the same app but bigger and harder to tote around the gym).
