Popular 7 Minute Workout App Breaks Servers

Fat Cigar Productions Ltd today announced a massive video server shutdown for their popular Wonder 7 Minute Workout App. On 30th December 2017 Wonder had many thousands of installs in just a few hours that the servers (providing the workout videos to download) were unable to cope.


An investigation found a key piece of software (by a 3rd party major developer) broke preventing the majority of users from being able to download the workout videos within the app. The issue was resolved within 48 hours but left a string of support queries and thousands waiting to be able to use Wonder. The software was fixed in time for their new years fitness resolutions on 1st January. Wonder’s provisional estimates are that over 20,000 Downloads were received.


“Our small team worked around the clock over New Year to get issue fixed and respond to all the support queries we were receiving,” explained Ross Jones, Co-Founder. “The issue is now solved and everyone who wanted the app for free is now able to use it but we’re extremely sorry that people couldn’t get full use of Wonder immediately. The sheer volume of installs was unexpected. We really care about our customer and try to go above and beyond to help them, so when something like this goes wrong it gives us an opportunity to show that.”


The Wonder 7 Minute Workout App allows you to progress from unfit-to-fit starting at just 7 Minutes a day, with a workout that is scientifically proven to deliver workout results. It is available for iPhone only. The app features personal trainer Abby Knight (Hampshire, UK) showcasing workouts. Wonder specifically provides workout routines designed to accelerate fitness results on the back of the original science behind the 7 Minute Workout published in the American College of Sports Medicine.


How It Works:
Wonder allows short high intensity workouts that can be done from home or the gym and relies on Compounding and Isolation routines to generate superior fitness results. The routines consist of 12 exercises lasting 30 seconds with 10 seconds rest in between. They should be performed to 80-100% of maximum effort in order to yield best results and are ideal for those with limited time or who want to accelerate their results. Wonder 7 Minute Workout provides challenges and goals to push you at each stage of fitness, and offers workouts that can be unlocked as you progress, adding variety to the routines, and improving your fitness results.


Device Requirements:
* Available for iPhone only
* Requires iOS 9.0 or later
* 85.9 MB
Wonder 7 Minute Workout App 1.0.5 is $4.99 and available in the App Store.
