GymCube is a fitness and nutrition service centred around helping people lose unwanted weight, increase fitness and improve strength.

Registered users can access the community of other members, online home exercise classes, over 600 exercise videos, diet guides and stat tracking in the private profile section of the site called myGymCube.

Answer

We want to help as many people as possible improve their health and fitness, so everyone is welcome to browse the video library, recipes and blog.

Then if you register on the site for a free account, you’ll gain access to myGymCube, which includes:

  • Lifestyle Guide

This comprehensive guide is jam packed with over 100 pages of in-depth advice on how to live a lifestyle of lifelong healthy habits.

  • Tracking Your Stats

You’ll be able to store your stats such as weight and measurements and track your progress.

  • Favourite Videos

You can mark your favourite videos so that you quickly access them as soon as you login, without needing to scroll through the entire library to find them each time you visit the site.

  • Track Your Workouts

See which workouts you’ve completed and how frequently you’ve worked out...a great way to keep you motivated

You can also become a member for just £7 per month or £70 per year, which includes all of the above, PLUS:

You’ll have exclusive access to our specific plans and programmes as part of your membership. These retail to non members at a starting price of £10.00 per plan, but you’ll have access to them all as part of your membership, and we add new plans every single month.

Our monthly challenges are a fantastic way to stay motivated. You’ll follow a specific plan created by one of our GymCube Master Trainers and have access to them via the site for the duration of the challenge.

  • Member-Only Groups

  • Store Discounts

You’ll get exclusive discounts on products in the GymCube shop, such as workout music and clothing.

Answer

In order to access all of the features of myGymCube, you will always need to log in.

You will need a reasonably good internet connection in order to access videos in high definition. If you are ever in an area where internet signal is weaker, the quality of the video may be reduced.

You do not need anything specific to start exercising with us, as there are many workout videos that require no equipment - just your bodyweight will allow you to do 80% of the exercise videos. Though not essential, we do recommend that at some point you purchase a pair of dumbells (inexpensive spin lock dumbbells will do the job!)

You should also ensure that you are in a safe environment to exercise, with the area around you clear of trip hazards and we also recommend that you wear appropriate active wear.

Answer

If your login has failed there could be a few simple explanations as to why.

1. You may have entered your email incorrectly on sign up

We encourage you to check that you have spelt your email address correctly when signing up.

New members are sent a welcome email on sign up, so if you haven't received yours then there is a chance you entered your email incorrectly. (When looking for the Welcome Email be sure to check your Junk/Spam folder) We often see mistakes such as .co instead of .com etc. This is a common mistake and can be easily fixed by emailing us at support@gymcube.com (providing us with the correct email address) and we will be able to check this for you.

If it appears that you have spelt the email address wrong we will be able to enter your correct email address for you.

2. Are you entering your password incorrectly?

There is a box below the password field where you can click 'show Password' so that you can be sure you are entering your details correctly.

3. Is Caps Lock on when it shouldn't be?

The password field is case sensitive, so it's worth checking your caps lock is not on when it shouldn't be. If all else fails! Email us and we will help you! This is the best email for the GymCube team > support@gymcube.com

Answer

If you have forgotten your password or simply want to change it, then go to login and underneath the password field you will see ' Enter the password that accompanies your email.’

Answer

This is something we recommend you do asap, as you will be generated a username at random by the system, it can be a bit of a pain for your friends to search for you.

Think of it like social media, if your friends join GymCube and want to connect with you but your name is ' jenny_1267 ', then there is little chance of them finding you!

So go to your 'myGymCube' in the top right of the screen, and select 'Settings'.

The first field you are greeted with is 'Display name'.

We recommend putting your full name, just like you would on Facebook or Twitter (remember that if you just put Jenny, there are likely lots of other Jenny's too), so, for example, Jenny Smith.

You can also upload a profile picture here too.

Answer

We recommend that you wear the normal clothes you would wear to visit a gym, but anything that you feel comfortable in, can move around freely in and won't cause safety issues (such as anything that could get caught somewhere or cause you to trip up).

We recommend a good pair of trainers to help support your feet.

Many people tell us that this is what they love about GymCube, that in your own home, you can wear whatever you like!

Answer

Every single person is different and there is no way of knowing the exact amount of fat which will be lost and in turn a specific number. If your goal is weight/fat loss, and you exercise correctly/regularly and eat sensibly, your body will give up fat faster than before whilst maintaining and increasing in muscle mass and as a result of this you will look amazing and feel great.

To help you set accurate, personalised goals we recommend booking a live one to one session with one of our awesome GymCube Coaches via our app.

Answer

Each class has a promo video so you can get a quick idea if the workout suits you, and there is also written descriptions which will tell you more about the workout in general and the types of things you will be doing.

As well as this, we have filters on the side of the workout library so that you can tick each box that applies to you so that it eliminates any workouts that don't suit your situation.

These filters include;

  • Calorie Burn
  • Duration
  • Workout Type
  • Body Zone
  • Difficulty
  • Equipment
  • Trainer

Answer

In order to play GymCube videos on Ubuntu (and some other Linux operating systems), you will need the following packages:

Chromium:
chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra

Firefox:
gstreamer0.10-plugins-good
streamer0.10-ffmpeg

If you’re using a Linux OS other than Ubuntu and this doesn’t do the trick, we recommend reaching out to the OS community for assistance. 

Answer

If you’re experiencing excessive buffering during playback, it’s probably because your Internet connection cannot support continuous playback of the selected video quality. Click HD in the player to select the best quality video file to stream - switching to one of the lower quality options.

You may also want to try one of the following:

  • Close extra browser tabs or other applications that may be using up your bandwidth.
  • Make sure you’re using the latest version of your browser.
  • If you’re still having trouble with playback, you can always reach out to GymCube's support team by emailing us at support@gymcube.com. Please provide with as much information as possible, including the specific video(s) you’re attempting to view, a detailed description of the problem you’re experiencing, and your browser and operating system specs.
