[prMac.com] Toronto, Canada - Core Concepts today is pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of Gym Tuck 1.0, a brand new fitness app from celebrity trainer and former professional athlete Joshua Lipsey. Using a method called "BOYTAM" (Bet On Yourself To Achieve More), users are able to bet on how many tucks, or exercises, they can complete or how long they can hold a tuck. BOYTAM fosters competition to help motivate and inspire users to achieve their fitness goals.
One of the greatest and most compelling strengths of this app is the variety of exercises that include many primary and secondary fitness components such as muscular strength, stabilization, dynamic conditioning, balance, coordination, and core strength. The tucks are based on Lipsey's popular "Trans-core-mation" series, which has been featured in Self Magazine, Toronto Sun, Entertainment Tonight, and Access Hollywood. There are over 500 beginner and advanced tucks to choose from, targeting the following areas:
* Abs (153 exercises)
* Sides (48 exercises)
* Glutes (50 exercises)
* Back (37 exercises)
* Legs (62 exercises)
* Arms (22 exercises)
* Balance (41 exercises)
* Cardio (90 exercises)
* Chest (27 exercises)
Beginner and advanced video demonstrations of each exercise are clearly illustrated by Lipsey and can be viewed multiple times. Gym Tuck allows users to track their stats including exercise history, tucks, and points balance. Users can easily share their progress with friends via Facebook, Twitter, Email, or SMS.
* Simple, easy-to-use interface
* 9 different procedures that target specific areas like abs, glutes, legs, and arms
* Beginner and Advanced levels
* Video demonstrations for each tuck
* Ability to send and receive challenges from friends to beat their scores or earn achievements

"It's a great app for people who do not have the time to commit to a workout and those who travel a lot for business. The variety of tucks also prevents the user from getting bored and hitting the dreaded plateau."
