I wanted to make a skill which would really help people. It seems 59% of Americans are obese now and exercising would help. But, why don't people exercise? The primary reasons are: (a) they don't have someone to do it with and (b) they are not motivated to do so. This skill solves both these issues!
Olympic Trainer will be your cheerleader, friend, or drill sargent. I mean this quite literally! Alexa's entire personality changes throughout the entire skill, depending on which trainer you select. Your trainer will motivate you to exercise, with personality-appropriate phrases!
You start at level 1, which is really easy. Then, as you progress, Olympic Trainer will increase your levels. You can also jump to a new level by saying Go to Level, then a level number from 1 to 10.
Olympic Trainer will remember which trainer you selected and automatically "become" that trainer next time you open the skill. She will also remember where you left off in a workout, so you can easily resume.
You can even pause a workout, if you get an important text or want a water break. Or, you can easily repeat the last exercise if you want to do it again.
** ECHO BUTTONS** I originally made this entire skill work with echo buttons, whereas you would put one button on one side of your room and another button on the other. Then as you progressed with your work out, you would move across the room and press the button when you got there.
However, I learned that many people will want to use this skill even if they don't have echo buttons. So I made it work with them, if you have them, and work by itself, if your don't. Also, many exercises, such as stretching and push-ups, don't require moving across the room.
So, the skill will prompt you every time to press your echo buttons any time to use them. This is also likely a nice gentle awareness reminder for everyone that Amazon now offers these incredible little gadgets!
As an in-skill purchase, I even wrote a module for customizing your routines! You can add unlimited steps in up to 10 custom routines, with a full-set of Add, Edit, Remove, Re-order, List, Select, and basic-routine mode features for both the routines and the steps in them.
In the future, I may add the ability to customize your own routine or select specialty routines (Yoga, Tae Kwon Do, Cardio Kick Boxing, etc).
I hope you enjoy my skill! And, I hope it brings a lot of good to a lot of people!
