What are circuit workouts?


The purpose of this help article is to introduce circuit workouts and provide details on how you can best navigate this new, hands-free experience. In this article we will discuss what circuit workouts are, how to access them, and how you can navigate the experience.

What is a circuit workout:

A circuit workout is a continuous circuit based training experience that requires little to no interaction with your phone while in a workout. Simply start your workout and Volt will automatically guide you through the rest, letting you know what movement to complete, how long to rest, when to switch sides, and what is coming up next, all with audible guidance. Circuit workouts are currently available on all of our At-Home programs under our General Fitness offerings. Grab some space, crank up your favorite tunes and get after it!

How to access circuit workouts:

You can access circuit workouts by selecting one of the At-Home program options available under General Fitness. You can follow the steps below. Currently, circuit workouts are only associated with the At-Home program options.

  1.  Navigate to the menu icon in the upper left
  2. Tap on Edit Training Program
  3. Tap on General Fitness
  4. Tap on any program with the blue "at-home" tag
  5. Select the program you wish to train on (all at-home workouts are circuit based workouts)
  6. Apply changes*

*Note: Any changes applied to your current training week, will override your current weeks progress and delete any completed workouts you have for that week.

Navigating circuit workouts:

  1. Tap on Start Workout
  2. Complete the readiness questionnaire and a warm-up if you wish
  3. After the warm-up is marked completed, Tap Start on the first prescribed movement
  4. Let Volt automatically guide you through the work

Audio Cues

During a circuit workout you will be given audio cues to help guide you through the workout. The cues will be in the form of audible chimes and voice guided notifications of the movement you are on and what is coming up. If you would like to disable audio cues you can do so by following the steps below.

From the Volt App:

  1. Navigate to the menu icon in the upper left
  2. Tap on Settings
  3. Tap on Audio
  4. Tap on the toggle to disable and enable audio cues

Pause or Skip

While in a workout you can pause or skip movements if needed. When resuming after pausing, your workout will pick up where you left off. You will have a 5-second countdown as you prepare to get back into your groove.



Once you start a workout, Volt will automatically progress you forward until the end of the workout. However, if you need to cut your workout short for any reason, you can tap Finish in the upper right anytime. Your workout summary will reflect what was completed prior to taping Finished.
