Creating your own Exercises

We have over 2000 exercises in the ALTINA exercise catalogue, but if you still can´t find the exercise you are looking for, you can always create your own.

How much detail you want to give the exercise is up to you. All we need in the system is a name, what type of exercise it is, and which group you want the exercise to be added to.

Adding your own descriptions and pictures to the exercises is optional - but a great way to distinguish your exercises and make them more descriptive.

Steps to creating your own exercise

You might be in the middle of creating a workout or module when find out we don´t have the exercise you want use in the exercise database.

When creating a workout and you search for an exercise, and it isn´t there, simply click create new exercise. (As seen in the image below)

Here, I searched for an exercise called Single Leg Romanian Deadlift, and it wasn´t in the database.

I then clicked Create new exercise, and the following screen appears.

I then filled out all the information I needed in order to best identify the exercise, along with a picture I found to better visualize the exercise.

When you are done describing the exercise, click SAVE, and the exercise will be added to your workout as well as your exercise database. This way you can find and use the exercise in later workouts.

Creating a new exercise in the app

Creating new exercises is just as simple in the app - the only difference is that you can´t add pictures. So if you want to add pictures to your exercises, create or edit them in the web-client.

  1. Click on create new exercise

  2. Fill in the details

  3. click Create exercise.

The exercise is then added to the workout as well as your exercise database for the training group you selected.
