The easiest way to download the SM app is to click on the App Store and Google play icons here. Or you can go to to either store and search for “Stronger Movement” to find the app.
Look for the SM app icon. The “SM” stands for Stronger Movement. The circle around it represents the continual evolution of your health and fitness journey.
LOG IN TO SM APP
After you download the app, you are ready to get started! The first time that you open the app, you come to the Log In screen.
How to log in to the app?
You use the same email and password as you entered when you signed up for the Stronger Movement membership.
Do you log in every time you use the app?
No. You automatically stay logged in to the app after the first time you use it. It is secure to stay logged in so you do not have to log off after using it.
How do you log out of app?
If you want to log out, you click the hamburger icon on the top left side and go to “Settings” and click on Log Out. It is recommended to stay logged in so you do not have to log in for every workout.
After you log in, you can view the workouts for the week. From this screen, you select what workout that you are going to do for the day.
How many workouts are available every week?
You get 5 new workouts a week! The order the of the workouts stays consistent every week with alternating between lower and upper body days with one full body day.
Do you need to do every workout for the week?
Absolutely not! You likely will have different time restraints or other fitness goals. If you are selecting 3 workouts to do a week, it is recommended to do 1 lower body, 1 upper body, and then picking another workout that fits your interests and goals.
How to access past workouts from other weeks?
You are getting new workouts every week! However, you might have a favorite workout you want to repeat. If so, you have access to the previous 3 weeks of workouts to go back to do again.
This screen is where you spend most of your time as it has the specifics for your workout. Each workout has Block A, B, C, D.
What is the block format of the workouts?
The blocks simply group 2-3 exercises together that you will perform together. Regardless if it is a lower or upper body workout, every workout follows the same structure with Block A, B, C, D. Ideally, you have the time to do the entire workout. However, you might need to make your workout shorter so you can choose the number of blocks you do each day based on your available time and goals.
How to know how many sets and reps for each exercise?
For each exercise, you will see the number of sets and reps. The sets are how many times you go through each block (example: 3 sets is 3 times). The reps are how many times you perform the exercise (example 12 reps is 12 times).
How much weight do you use for each exercise?
The workouts use both dumbbells and resistant bands. You are not given how much weight to use as this varies for each individual. The “0” placeholder is there as an option for you to input the weight you use.
EXERCISE DEMO VIDEOS
From the workout screen, you can click on any exercise to watch the exercise video demonstration. It is helpful to watch these short videos to familiarize yourself with the basics of the exercise.
How to play the exercise demo video?
When you click on the video, it opens in another screen. This video gives you a brief overview of the exercise. You can repeatedly play it if necessary.
What is the purpose of the exercise demo videos?
The exercise videos are meant to be a short overview of how to do the exercise. Within the app at this time, it is not intended to be a complete and thorough description of how to perform the exercise. Please use your discretion if you are not familiar with the exercise or are uncertain on how to perform it.
