• Results and iOS 10

    It’s time to say goodbye, we’re dropping iOS 10!

    Technology advances rapidly, with new devices coming out every year. Sometimes it can be hard to keep up with the pace and still provide a great app experience.

    So, in order to provide you with the best user experience, we have decided to discontinue our support for iOS 10.

    As a result, we will no longer be able to fix any issues that are reported on iOS devices running iOS 10 or lower.

    What does that mean for you?

    • In order to guarantee a smooth app experience, simply update to the newest available iOS version.
    • If your device can’t run a higher iOS version, you should still be able to use the app. However, we won’t be able to fix any reported bugs or issues within the Results app on iOS 10 devices.

    Note: Once you remove the Results app from your phone, you will not be able to download it on your iOS 10 device again.

  • New Training Plans

    You might have noticed a few more plans in your Results app in addition to your 12-Week Training Plan. 

    The main difference between your current training plan and the new training plan is the following:

    The workouts in the training plans 6-Week Shape Up, Toned Abs in 6 Weeks, and Fit and Strong in 3 Weeks include duration based exercises. 

    So like in the Workout Creator, it will say 40 seconds of Push-Ups for example, instead of 40 repetitions of Push-Ups.

    6-Week Shape Up: 

    Whether you want to feel fitter and healthier, or shape up for a special event: this 6-week plan is ideal for you!

    Fit & Strong in 3 Weeks:  

    A short plan if you’re short on time — this will help you shape up quickly and improve your fitness level in just 3 weeks.

    Toned Abs in 6 Weeks (Female): 

    The best exercises if you want to strengthen your midsection and define your core muscles.

    The 12-Week Body Transformation and Push Your Limits training plans will include repetition based workouts.

    6 Weeks to Six Pack (Male):

    The best exercises if you want to strengthen your midsection and define your core muscles.

    The 12-Week Body Transformation and Push Your Limits training plans will include repetition based workouts.

    12-Week Body Transformation: 

    Whether you want to build muscle, lose weight, or just commit to getting fit, this plan will give you the results you want. 

    Push Your Limits: 

     Already pretty fit, but you want to go further? This is the full-body plan to make it happen. 

    Have we piqued your interest? You can start one of the new training plans at any time, you just need to either finish or quit your current training plan. 

    Note: Once you quit a training plan, all your progress will be lost and can’t be restored. However, your activities will be saved in the “Progress” Tab

  • I purchased a Premium Membership, yet cannot access the Premium features. Why not?

    It is important to answer the three mandatory questions to evaluate your fitness before you are able to access your Training Plan. Only after answering the three questions are you able to start your 12-week Training Plan.

    If you have purchased the Premium Membership yet your account still appears as a basic membership, you may need to restore your purchase.

    To do so, go to the settings of the app via “More”, tap "Runtastic" and then "Restore Purchases". Be sure to use the same Apple account you used when you purchased the membership.

    If your Premium Membership is not activated after this step, please make sure that you are logged in with the correct account. You may have accidentally created a new account despite already being a Premium Member on another account. If you are already logged in with the wrong account, just go to “Settings” and log out.

  • Adding/Searching for Friends

    Would you like to add a friend but you are out and about? No problem. Just do it with your Results app.

    There are two options to enter the “Friends” screen:

    1. Tap “More” in the lower right corner. Tap your name or profile picture at the top. In the lower half of the screen, you will find “XX Friends” and your pending requests. Tap that overview to enter the “Friends” screen.
    2. Tap “News Feed” in the lower left corner and then the “+” in the top right corner.

    As soon as you are in the “Friends” screen, you are able to accept or decline friend requests, search for friends or see your current friends.

    Search for friends:

    You can either connect the app to Facebook or your contact list, or tap the magnifying glass icon in the top right corner to search for contacts. As soon as you are connected, possible contacts will be suggested in “People you may know.”

  • Progress Pics

    You can keep track of your transformation by taking Progress Pics directly in the Results app. Follow these simple steps below to start tracking your progress:

    • Open the Results app
    • Tap “Progress” on your tab bar
    • Select “See More” next to “Progress Pics”
    • Tap “Take First Pic” and you are ready to go

    It is important to line up your eyes and knees with the lines provided. You can move the picture afterwards to fit the lines or choose a different photo from your phone.

    How is my progress displayed?

    On the left, you will always see the original picture, and on the right, the current photo. You can also switch the current picture for another one by tapping “Take a New Pic” at the top. Tap the picture you would like to use from your photo gallery and then “Set” at the top. If you don’t see the “Set” button, the latest photo is set already.

    How can I share my progress?

    Progress pics are only visible to you. However, if you would like to share your transformation with your family and friends, tap “See More” next to “Progress Pics”. Tap the Share Icon in the top right corner, then choose your preferred platform.

    How do I back up my progress pics?

    To save a copy of your progress pics to your device, follow these simple steps:

    • Tap “More” on your tab bar
    • Enable “Save Progress Pics”
    • Allow the app permission to access the storage of your device

    Your progress pics will then be safely stored in your device. This will also ensure that you do not lose your progress pics if you reinstall the app for any reason.

  • Cardio Goal

    Set a Cardio Goal for yourself in the “Plan” tab of your Results app. All the activities (running, walking, biking, hiking, etc.) you track with your Runtastic app are synced automatically.

    The Cardio Goal can be set at the end of every week together with the number of training sessions for the following week. Just set the number of minutes you want to spend on cardio training in addition to your Results workouts.

  • How do I count repetitions when doing the exercises?

    When you are doing mountain climbers, walking lunges or punches, each movement counts as one repetition. For instance, mountain climber right 1, mountain climber left 2, mountain climber right 3, and so on…

    Please note the difference from an exercise like Up-Downs. Here you can count one repetition like this:

    • Start in High-Plank position
    • Lower your left arm down to a Low-Plank position
    • Lower your right arm down to a Low-Plank position
    • Bring your left arm back up to a High-Plank position
    • Bring your right arm back up to a High-Plank position
  • Is my existing Premium Membership valid for all the features in the Results App?

    Yes, if you are a Premium Member and are already enjoying all the benefits of the Runtastic Portfolio, then all the Standalone Workouts, the 12-week Training Plan and the Nutrition and Health tips within the Results app are available to you as well. There is no need for you to buy another membership.

  • What is the Training Plan and how does it work?

    Your personalized Training Plan will be created for you after you provided responses to three initial questions. The first part is about your current activity and fitness level. Then you let us know how often you exercise and how fit you evaluate yourself to be, followed by your current weight and height.

    Now you are ready to get started on your first workout in Week 1!  

    You are able to give feedback on your experience every week (and let us know, for example, if the workout was way too difficult or too easy) and your plan for the following week will be adjusted based on your performance and feedback.

    After every week, you are able to choose whether you would like to do two, three, four or five workouts the following week. If you choose to do five workouts, it is important to complete all of them. Therefore, always make sure that you have enough time for the workouts you commit to for the following week, as you cannot change the number during the week.

    Your Training Plan can start on any day you choose. This way you can easily fit your plan into your daily schedule. You are only able to do one workout per day in order to give your muscles some time to recover.

     

  • How do I get my Training Plan?

    You can access the Training Plan as soon as you are a Premium Member. If you already have a Premium Membership, just log in to the Results app with the same account and you can start right away.

    Not yet a Premium Member?

    No problem. You can purchase your Premium Membership directly in the app or on Runtastic.com. Just be sure to log in with the same account that you’re using with your Results app.

     

  • How do I skip the warm-up?

    We highly recommend that you do not skip the warm-up. This is a crucial part of your training and helps ensure that your muscles are ready to train and you do not get injured. If you want to skip it because you already did a different warm-up, you can simply disable the warm-up before you start your workout.

    To deactivate the warm-up permanently, tap “More” on your tab bar  and toggle off “Warm-up.”

  • What are Standalone Workouts?

    Standalone Workouts are workouts you can do in addition to your Training Plan or your regular fitness routine.

    Select the “Workout” tab and then “Standalone Workouts”. Start with the first workout “Alpha”. The workouts are listed in order of intensity and get harder the farther down the NATO alphabet you go. As you progress, you’ll soon be able to reach “Zulu”. You can do the same Standalone Workout multiple times to track improvements.

    Before starting your Standalone Workout, make sure to watch the exercise videos so you are adequately prepared. The videos must be downloaded first. You can tap each video to start the download or tap the icon in the top right corner to download all the videos at once. As soon as the video is downloaded, just tap it to watch it as many times as you would like.

     

  • How can I view and download the exercise videos?

    To view the exercise videos before your workout, select “Workouts” and then “Exercises.” In this section, you are able to watch HD videos of more than 150 exercises. The videos need to be downloaded first. To do so, just tap on the video and the download will start immediately. Once downloaded, tap on the exercise to start the video.

    The videos are categorized by muscle group and difficulty level: Basic, Intermediate and Tough.

    Note: To save data volume, make sure to use a wireless network when you are downloading the videos.

    What does the little house icon mean?

    The house icon lets you know that the exercise/workout is neighbor friendly (no jumping or loud exercises) and can be done indoors without disturbing anyone.

  • Do I need an internet connection for the workouts?

    No, you do not need to be connected to the internet during your workouts with the Results app, as the app is using information stored on your phone. 

    An internet connection is important though when you are downloading training videos. We recommend using a wireless network to save data volume. 

    After your training, the workouts are synchronized to Runtastic.com. A internet connection is necessary to synchronize your data.

  • Where can I see my history?

    To view your training history, follow the steps below:

    • Open the Results app
    • Tap “Progress” on your tab bar
    • Your most recent workouts will be displayed at the top of the screen. Select “See More” to view every training session completed with the Results app
  • I am not a Premium Member yet, can I still use the Results app?

    If you are not a Premium Member yet, you are still able to use the Results app. A few of the Standalone Workouts and instructional exercise videos are available for free. All the other videos (those with a star) can only be used by Premium Members.

    We encourage you to become a Premium Member and enjoy all the benefits that Results (and the entire Runtastic Portfolio) has to offer!  Your 12-week, total-body transformation Training Plan is just a few clicks away!
