  • Great training, incredible bargain

    By CHJO
    I used the book for a couple of years - then app came out - $0.99 for great exercise programs with clear written and video guidance - what more can you ask for? Great for travelers like me.
  • Basically your own Personal Trainer

    By vinbarnes
    Have had continued success using the app for years now. I do the exercises at home, in a gym, even on the road in a hotel or airbnb - that’s part of the fun, being creative. Set a 10-week objective, get after it, reap the rewards.
  • Amazing Program Changed my Life

    By ol' Bruce
    I started on this about 18 months ago after being recommended for my son. At 62 years old, I was experiencing a number of pain issues rooted in lack of flexibility and core strength. Within 90days of YAYOG, I experienced not just a reduction, but elimination of sciatica and lower back pain. The FUNCTIONAL strength this program produces is amazing. I generally do 2 workouts per week, and one 1-2 hour mountain bike ride on weekend. I feel great, flexibility is much, much greater, and best of all, NO MORE PAIN. Highly recommended.
  • Best warmup and cool down exercises.

    By momofsome
    Bought this app a few years ago. The basic workout was too intense for me. But I have not found better warmup or cooldown exercises. I use them for biking, running and swimming warmups as well as body weight resistance. Great app.

    I love these quick workouts. I’m not a gym person so this is a great at home workout. I’ve been doing them for about 2 years and look forward to them. I’m in a size 4 and get compliments all the time on how I look. Thanks Mark
  • Take anywhere exercise

    By Otis20111
    Excellent functional workout. Although a bit redundant, the workouts are functional and work anywhere you have space.
  • Physiologically Balanced

    By Neurologixian
    I have been using this app, specifically the EFX program, for approximately 4 years now. I am a big fan of body weight exercises as I believe they train the nervous system in coordinated activation of muscle groups. The EFX program seems to balance activation of both the anterior chain as well as the posterior chain of muscle groups with some creative exercises, especially for the posterior chain group. The body weight exercises are done in sets and supersets that combine cardiovascular as well as strength training for a well rounded training routine. Mark Lauren tries to teach proper movement mechanics with brief instructions. Keeping proper posture is absolutely key to obtaining maximum benefit from body weight exercises. A working understanding of Alexander Technique can be helpful in understanding some of the brief body mechanics instructions that he gives. Implementation of proper posture can improve activation of abdominal musculature during plank and squat movements; however, this is not obvious from the program as it is. This is one area that could stand some improvement/tweaking. I would love to see more progressions of the exercises in the future. Overall, I love this program and highly recommend it.
  • Awesomely done!

    By Chuck Barry
    I’ve been doing YAYOG for quite a few years now and it never gets old. I get compliments all the time! Not only that but I’m in the best shape of my life. It’s fully customizable, it can be made easier or harder. I mean there’s literally 50 weeks of training from beginner up to expert. And It’s perfectly okay to stay at a level where you’re comfortable. For the price, you can’t beat that! With a good diet and great exercise program you’ll be in great shape in no time.
  • Love the variety and the gradual but challenging increase

    By jake_the_snake
    Almost finished with level 2 and loving it. No need to buy any extra videos, at least initially, as the pack that comes with it is great. The difficulty increases steadily but gradually, allowing for the body to grow with the challenge. Other workouts try to hammer your body for "quick and instant results". I much prefer this method. I highly recommend it. The app has its idiosyncrasies, but the more you use it, the better you learn to interpret it. Edit: I lowered my rating by a star. I think the built in workouts are too dependent on accessories. For example, I live in an old house with thick walls. The frame is too fragile to put up a pull-up bar and the walls too thick for the bar which uses physics to keep it up. This is frustrating. I really want to continue with this but a significant part of the exercise I simply can not do. It would be great if the app suggested comparable alternatives when you edit the workouts, or of you could replace a workout throughout a program, so you didn’t have to adjust every time. Update: I repeat, this exercise program needs a setting where you can turn off the need for equipment or walls.
  • You Are Your Own Gym

    By AJDestin
    Several years ago, I bought Mark Lauren’s You Are Your Own Gym book, and it helped me to get into the best shape of my life. Then life got entirely too busy and, well you know the story. Now that I’m ready to get back into shape again, I’ve found that the basic workouts in that book are a bit out of reach unless I want to be REALLY sore. I found this app and have been very impressed. Not only are there multiple programs available for your specific level of fitness (Basic through Elite), but there are also smaller workouts at those same levels and you can adjust the time from 2 to 40 minutes, making your own little program. I’ve found this very useful and also really like that it stores my history and exports to the Apple Health App. If you really want to get into shape, get this now. The warmups, workouts, and cool downs are all well designed and the app works great.
