Looking Forward to Vitogo 2.0

We launched Vitogo 1.0 in January to an exciting amount of coverage from Thrillist.com (and some other great sites) and got a ton of users. It was exciting to see all of you finally using Vitogo after the months that we spent building it. We’ve received some fantastic feedback and have been working hard to implement all of it. It’s exciting work turning your feedback into reality!

The only problem is we can’t do everything instantaneously. So, the past little while, we’ve had our heads down working at a furious pace to build the next great release of the Vitogo iPhone/iPod Touch app and adding some awesome improvements to vitogo.com. We can’t wait to show them to all of you. While it isn’t going to look much different (yet!), it’s going to do everything better. It’s hard to explain, but trust us when we say it’s going to blow your mind how much better Vitogo is going to be.  More… »

How Do I Know How Much Weight to Lift?

 

Everyone is different, so we can’t suggest how much weight to lift the first time you use Vitogo. However, we do tell you how many repetitions you are supposed to do, which will help you determine the appropriate amount of weight to lift. Here’s how:

1) Each exercise in your daily program will tell you how many sets and repetitions to do (For example, 3 sets x 8 reps). The number of recommended repetitions is tailored to your goal.

2) Pick a weight that you think you can safely lift for the recommended number of repetitions (In this case, 8 times).

3) Using the built-in countdown timer, rest for the recommended period between sets.

4) If you are able to easily complete all (or more) of the recommended sets and reps, then you know that you need to increase your weight for next time. If you weren’t able to complete the recommended number of sets and reps, then you should decrease your weight for next time.

5) You should feel tired by the end of your last set. Be safe, but don’t make it too easy! To see a real benefit from strength training, you need to lift weight that is heavy enough to challenge you. For some exercises, like the bench press, it can be helpful to ask a friend or trainer at the gym to “spot” you. It’s the spotters’ job to help you if you are struggling to lift the weight and to keep you safe during a challenging lift.

6) Vitogo stores the number of repetitions and amount of weight that you do for each exercise, so, the next time you complete that exercise you will remember how much weight to lift.

Now Available in the App Store!

The cartoon porn day you’ve been waiting for is finally here!  Vitogo is available in the App Store!

Vitogo is compatible with the iPhone and iPod Touch, so you can bring it to the gym to coach you through every step of your workout. Just like a personal trainer, Vitogo assesses your fitness level and goals to give you a tailored workout program that evolves with you.

We’re very excited to bring you this revolutionary product and we’re hoping that it will help a lot of people achieve their fitness goals. Check out the video below to learn how Vitogo works and head on down to the App Store to download your copy!

There is no way that we could have made this project happen without the enormous effort and support of a lot of people. We’d like to particularly thank Wells Riley. Without Wells, we never would have accomplished so much in such a short period of time. Wells’ inspired design and UI shaped Vitogo and made it better than we could have imagined.

We’d also like to thank Ian Hirschfeld, Nick Pettazzoni, Hugh Guiney, and Raffy Rabin for their countless hours of development work, Connie Chan for designing our sexy trophies, and Patrick Feger for designing our logo.

Special thanks to Laura Jud, the brains behind all the awesome tailored workout programs, and to all of the incredible models – Allie, Nikki, Mark, Adam, and Jill – who appear in the exercise videos. Thanks too to SNF Fitness for providing the venue, and to Scott Yates, our videographer.

Thanks to our advisor, Jared Stenquist, for providing us milf porn with guidance, support, (and hosting)!

You have been an awesome team to work with over the past several months. Thanks again for all your hard work!
