We’ve just released a brand new 100% FREE iPad App, designed for student use. It also works especially well in scenarios where you might have students working from home.

The app ‘Workout Producer‘ puts your students in the director’s chair of their very own workout video, where they are the stars 🙂

Here’s how it works

1. Start by piecing together your desired workout routine using the list of inbuilt activities or use your own.

2. Once complete the app guides your students through the recording of a max 20-second demonstration of each activity.

3. After completing all the workout demonstrations, the app pieces these together into a fully-featured workout video with music that can be shared.

How can you use it?

To help you get started with the introducing Workout Producer in your PE Classrooms, we’ve prepared a task you can do with your students below;

Workout Producer Task

Your task is to use the Workout Producer iPad App to create your very own workout video that your parents, siblings or classmates can complete from home.

Step 1: Download the iPad App for FREE from the Apple Store (use the following link www.cpe.to/workout 

Step 2: Launch the App from your iPad and select ‘Create New’

Step 3: At this stage, you can get started creating your workout by dragging the exercises from the various categories in the activity list section. 

Please use the table below to record the category, exercises and any thinking or notes behind why you’ve included the specific activity.  Please consider the most logical flow of exercises for your routine

Step 4: With your workout now planned, please complete the following questions. 

What is the focus of your workout? (eg is this cardio-based or centred on muscular endurance?)

Explain how the specific exercises support your workouts overall focus.

Step 5: You can now press ‘Start Recording’ to be taken through your list of planned exercises. At each exercise, you will be prompted with the steps to perform that exercise correctly. We recommend practising each exercise 1-2 times before pressing the ‘Record’ button.
