Workout Creator: Top Bodyweight Circuit Workouts for Traveling

Two friends doing high planks

 Want to train your arms for 15 minutes? How about a half-hour butt and abs workout you can easily do in a hotel room when you’re traveling for business or on holiday? You choose the muscle groups and the duration, and we will create the perfect workout for you in a matter of seconds – no matter where your on-the-go lifestyle takes you! The Workout Creator in your Results app makes fitting in a workout with the time you have easy, sweaty and effective.

Where can you find the Workout Creator?

To access the Workout Creator on Android, simply click on Workout Creator in the drawer. You can access the Workout Creator on iOS by clicking the “Workouts” tab.

What’s the difference between the Workout Creator and 12-week plan? 

Unlike the 12-week Training Plan within the Results app, the Workout Creator operates on time instead of repetitions, thus creating HIIT-style or circuit training workouts. But, as with all the Results workouts, you will only be doing bodyweight exercises. You can use the Workout Creator on its own on a regular basis, use it in between workouts in your 12-week Training Plan if you want to target a muscle group that’s not already sore 🙂 or fit in a quick workout after a nice run – do as you please!

Additionally, the Workout Creator can act as a form of cross-training to support the activity you’re trying to improve. For example, if you’re a runner and want stronger abs or stronger arms to improve your running, go for an abs or upper body workout (or both!). Or if you went for a swim yesterday and your upper body is tired, you can opt for a leg workout instead. The Workout Creator can really fit into anyone’s workout routine.
And one more thing, you can now pause any workout within the Results app in case something unexpected comes up (i.e. you need to make a quick phone call, someone comes to the door or you need a quick bathroom break).

How long do the Workout Creator workouts take?

It’s totally up to you! You can decide on the exact time you want to work out (between 7-45 minutes) plus the targeted muscle groups: Upper Body, Arms, Abs & Core, Legs, Butt or Full Body. You can select more than one category (i.e. Arms, Abs & Butt) or select Full Body. When you’re finished selecting your duration and muscle groups, press “Continue” and you’re ready to rock!

Is the Workout Creator suitable for all fitness levels?

Absolutely! If you’re a beginner, start out with a workout that’s around 7-10 minutes to see how you feel. As you get fitter and stronger, you’ll be able to increase the duration of your workouts. And don’t get carried away in the beginning and do a workout every single day because you’re super-motivated. Start out with 2-3 days per week and then go from there.

How long does it take to see results with the Workout Creator?

Keep in mind that everyone is different, and diet plays a huge role in getting into shape! We highly suggest you combine your workout with mindful food tracking using the Balance app. Good news: If you start this month, you’ll have plenty of time to get in tip-top shape for summer!
