Those twitchy about grammar might quibble over the lack of capital letters to mycloudtag, but other than that there’s not a huge amount to complain about when it comes to this fitness app.

The app offers up a series of workout programs covering various different needs. Even better, it does so mostly for free. While it’s possible to spend money on unlocking extra content, it’s just as possible to earn them through regular workouts, proving to be quite the motivation.

Starting out, one workout from each type opens up for free. There’s a fat burning weight loss one, one for total body sculpting, better back and core, as well as a high intensity HIIT program. In each case, choosing a workout ties users into the program for a number of weeks ahead, with mycloudtag figuring out the ideal breaks between sessions. It’s not possible to run workout programs concurrently, so pick wisely.

At times those breaks feel a little over the top, slowing things down hugely, but this might simply be down to my impatience when working out. Videos and descriptions help ensure that it’s unlikely that anyone is going to get confused in regards of what to do. In many cases no equipment is needed either, making it ideal to do at home.

As a unique twist to the format, it’s possible to import photos as well as your friends’ social media updates so there’s always something to look at while performing your reps. It’s a nice touch helping keep one motivated as well as distracted from focusing too much on any trouble being caused performing the exercise.

The real gem to mycloudtag is being able to unlock new workouts through working hard. There’s still that temptation to unlock packs with money as they don’t exactly cost much, but it’s good to have something to work towards and to feel rewarded.

As an all-in-one fitness package, mycloudtag is a pretty good way to work out at home.
