You have just been added to Gymkee, bravo 👏
From now on, you will easily perform the workouts sent by your trainer to reach your goals.
But how do you start a workout? That's what we're going to see together in this article.
Go to your app available on all the stores and log in to your account.
Once on your home page, if you have a workout scheduled, it should appear in the "Fitness" section.
Before you start your workout, you will be able to preview it to see what to expect and watch the exercise videos.
To do this, click on the workout.
You will land on the preview of your workout:
⚠️ Please note, this is not where you will be doing your workout.
This screen allows you to preview your entire workout before you start it.
You will be able to view:
The workout instructions left by your coach (if completed):
The whole structure of your workout:
The details of the exercises to anticipate the weights to put in place
The exercise videos so you can watch your exercises before starting your workout.
💡 To watch the video, you need to click on the thumbnail (the image).
Once you have looked at what is waiting for you in your workout, you will be able to start it by tapping on the "Start this workout" button.

When you arrive on your workout, you will be taken directly to the first exercise of your training.
Once again, there are many elements on this screen, and it is straightforward to understand, you will see!

The video will run in a loop so that you can always visualize the movement to perform it properly and avoid any injury.
Then, you will have the name of your exercise as well as the actual set and the number of sets to perform:
Just below, you will find the exercise instructions:
These instructions are divided into 3 :
The 1st label is used to indicate the intensity or the weight of your exercise.
The 2nd label is used to specify the number of reps, the duration or the distance of your training.
The 3rd and last label is used to indicate your rest time.
If it is a timed exercise, you will find the timer just below the exercise instructions.
To launch the timer, click on the "Start Timer" button.
To stop the timer during the exercise, you have to tap on it, and the timer will automatically pause.
With any exercise, you can move on to the next one at any time. All you have to do is click on "Go to next" or "Go to next exercise."
When you go from one exercise to the next, you will usually rest between the two exercises.
During your rest time, you will be able to preview the following exercise:
