Activ5 Companion App

The Activ5 Companion App will coach users of any age and fitness level to achieve the maximum benefits from their Activ5 with more than 100 seated, standing, and low-impact workouts.

The App personalizes workouts to each user’s fitness level, tracks progress, and even allows users to exercise while playing games. Available for iOS and Android.

How does Activ5 work?


The way you interact with the Activ5 App is through a marker, which represents the amount of pressure applied to your Activ5 device.

In the Activ5 App, the marker will be a dot or a skier.

More pressure makes the dot go HIGHER, Less pressure makes the dot go LOWER.

In Activ5 Games, available for separate download in the Android and iTunes App Stores, the marker will vary.

Pressure you apply on the Activ5 device controls your marker.

More Pressure makes the skier go RIGHT, Less pressure makes the skier go LEFT.


The Activ5 App coaches you by creating curves for each exercise, based on your MAX POWER. We call this version of isometric exercise "Variobics"

By applying more or less pressure to the Activ5 device

you can keep your marker on the exercise curve.

If MAX POWER isn't set for each exercise, the exercise will not be customized to your strength level and may be too easy or too difficult.

Note: Screens may not appear the same on all mobile devices.

Does the Activ5 arrive charged?

Yes. Your Activ5 comes with a AAA battery already installed, which will last between 6 and 12 months.

Do I need a smartphone to use Activ5?

You can use the device without the app, but the real benefits and fun come from measuring your strength level, playing games, and tracking your progress.
