> Hi Clive, I find myself using a skill called My workouts quite a lot, purely because it is fully audio based and it means that I can have custom made workouts in the comfort of my home and still keep fit, it asks for some details about your fitness level, then based on the details you give it creates a 20 minute workout, then at the end of each workouts she asks whether you found the workout too hard, too easy, or just right. If you need a description of an exercise you say help and she gives a very detailed description of how you do the exercise.   Would you be interested in that at all?
