STAmina Apnea Trainer Positive Reviews
Post Covid19I’m extremely grateful for this tool at this moment in time. After getting COVID19 6 weeks ago and suffering from major fatigue for 14 days while being an athlete and coaching NBA athletes to be their best in mind and body I was struggling with my lack of stamina as I’m known to be the guy in the room that never gets tired. After a few friends of mine getting Covid19 and developing pneumonia because they pushed it during their training after being symptom free, I knew I had to slow down and modify what’s possible right now.
Your app has given me great hope that I can still challenge myself right now to build my energy and stamina but not do any potential damage. Not only that, but as a scuba diver and lover of the ocean now I’m thinking and visualizing my first free dive and even first spear fishing trip with my friend that recommended this app to me. Grateful for the gift you’ve given me through your app, the gift of energy, stamina, and vision. Cheers with water, Coach Adam Cobb.Version: 3.0.11
Great app!UPDATE: The developer contacted me in a very timely manner and helped me resolve the issue. Which was that the ringer on the left side of the phone was in the silent position. Now I have the voice and will update the rating to 5 stars as I find the app very useful. I would love to see an upgrade at some point that will allow to hear the app’s voice even with the ringer in silent position though, as I don’t want to be interrupted by any phone calls during my training! Thanks for taking this request into account.
Original review: 3 stars - the app appears to be completely silent, although I set a voice and beeping in Settings. It is difficult to watch the time during all the training and I want to make sure I have the voice activated. I already rebooted my phone and did everything I could to ensure it’s working, but no success. And I can’t find how to contact developer with this questions. Thanks for looking into it..Version: 1.9.6
Solid for what it does2020 update
Use this app consistently. Developer is really responsive which I appreciate. Got me to 4 minute hoods, thanks!!
Takes out the guesswork from creating tables, and lets you focus on technique instead of watching a timer. There are, however, a few features that I think would be pretty obvious inclusions in a paid (premium) app.
Would be nice if it helped you decide when to generate new tables, and allowed you to rate and makes notes about each session (how difficult did you find it, did you master a technique, etc). A history graph would be nice too, along with an export functionality.
Also it’s weird that it doesn’t work with the silent switch on and the display off. For instance, my metronome app plays sound regardless of the state of the silent switch or display. Seems like this would be the obvious thing to do, as when you start a session, you are indicating that you want that activity happening for the next ~20 minutes—the app could infer that it’s okay if it makes noise.
Finally I dive to get away from the noise of society and go to a place of focus and mindfulness—being nagged every time to “SHOW THE WOLE WORLD” my dive practice is antithetical to the way I experiencing diving. Please let me switch this feature off!.Version: 3.0.1
Help!! Update broke my appAwesome app, and awesome response from the developer after a patch had unexpected bugs. Following this post, the developer corrected the issue within 48 hours. Highly recommended app for anyone working on breath hold training.
I am running iOS 10.3.1, upgraded to the new Apnea app today and now my app won't work. I go to start a table training and the familiar circle appears, but there is no data in the boxes and the timer doesn't work. I have restarted my phone, closed the app multiple time and still nothing..Version: 1.9.2
Works fine once learned. Needs some improvement.It took me a while to figure out some of the arcane intricacies, but once I figured it out it wasn’t that big a deal— an introductory howto walk-through, or even just a video, would be nice for those who are newcomers to the whole scene here. Now that I know how things work, I find one feature sorely missing: iCloud synchronization. I have multiple devices, and sometimes I want to use one instead of the other, but all of my data seems stuck on each isolated device completely oblivious to the others. Also, it would be nice to have some volume control over each individual alert: e.g. I would like to have a LOUD final alert, that I can hear while floating head down under water, but I would like the “every 15 seconds beeps“ to be relatively soft, yet not completely turned off..Version: 1.9.8
Great app, for those with experienceFull disclosure, I’m not a free diver and have other reasons to use the app. For someone without any experience I think the app could use a bit more guidance as to how to set it up. It offers a variety of tables, but only two out of the 8 or so options will auto generate, the other ones are for manual entry of times.
As someone without the experience to know when or why to train some of the other styles I have no concept of what I should put into those tables.
This app does what it’s supposed to do very well, but lends itself to those that already know how to set up breath training for their goals..Version: 3.1.5
Great for both beginners and advancedThis app is amazing wether you are just starting to work on your breath holds, or are a veteran. The computer tables work great for beginners and for anyone trying to expand their training. The ability to build your own tables and keep record your times, making it very easy to track your progress. Definitely recommend this app as a tool to continue training, and even more important, if you plan on learning to freedive, take a course because there is not substitute!.Version: 3.0.12
2:08 to 5.03 in 10 daysI’m 58 years old and I’m decent shape but I’m no athletic specimen. Just your normal guy. I live on a sailboat for 7-8 months a year and I’m in the water a lot so I wanted to improve my breath hold for spear fishing. When I started I held my breath for 2:08 and was hoping to achieve 3- 3.5 minutes by the end of the summer. One week in I held for 3:40 and two days later my new PR is 5:03!!! I’m stoked! I don’t expect to expand a lot past this level but we will see. Really happy with this app!.Version: 3.0.12
Love it so far but...Nothing wrong with the training. So far has been a wonderful app. I just wish there was more help. I don’t know how often I should be running through the tables, which tables to run through or create for the best results, how often I should be trying to beat my personal best etc. would be nice to get a help section to learn how to train, how often and what I should be training for, or help in customizing the training sessions. But wonderful app.Version: 2.0.4
Amazing app. Saves so much frustration!Great user friendly app. Allows you to do everything you would need to do on this app and much more. I emailed support asking if there was anyway on how to progress using the app as far as when to use certain tables. When to switch from easy/moderate/hard settings for each table. But, the app is beautifully designed and easy to get through. No bugs found at all.Version: 2.0.9
I’m actually using this for anxietyThis feels like a useful tool in helping me reduce anxiety and reactivity. Some thinking suggests that having a higher CO2 tolerance can be beneficial for sufferers of anxiety. Also, my whole life I have struggled with sustained cardio, loved weights but anything involving a moderate to high intensity sustained over time felt like too much burning and discomfort. Working on CO2 tolerance is aiding me in my couch to 5K program. App is helpful and easy to use..Version: 3.3.0
Great for building confidence in the waterI went from 1:30 on day one to 3:30 in just two weeks! However, one change I would like to see is pre-programmed workouts in the app. (As a beginner to apnea training, I feel like I’m just guessing when I create my workouts.) It would be great to be able to simply select from various road-tested workouts at increasing difficulties. Also it would be awesome to have a progress graph so you can easily track your results over time..Version: 3.1.6
Amazing AppIf you’re having trouble with your Stamina. Or if you just want to increase your free dive abilities this is the App for you. It’s highly customizable to fit your needs, if something is too hard or too easy you can change it to fit your needs. I was able to increase my PB (how long I was able to hold my breath) by 10 seconds in just a week!.Version: 3.4.0
Helpful Feedive training appExcellent for monitoring breathhold progress and increasing CO2 tolerance. I'm not too the point where I could benefit from O2 tables, but it's clear the app works as hoped. One addition I would like to see is a complete 30, 60, or 90 day training plan based on starting static hold, number of times a week you'd like to dedicate to training, and degree of difficulty.
Thanks for a solid app..Version: 1.9.8
Really really good but only one requestA GREAT app, a 5 out of 5 stars app and is really crazy how well it works but I wish I could hear the beeps when not having the app open so I could use other apps besides music while training. Thank you for creating this and it is definitely worth the money for anyone reading through these to see if you should buy this. Would be amazing if you could fix this issue..Version: 1.9.8
AmazingThe user interface is intuitive and the timer visualizations are perfect. Quickly test and generate tables based on results, or customize your own tables with templates or your own specs. Looking forward to HR monitor support and additional sound options. Thanks for making the best part of my morning routine even better!.Version: 3.4.0
Stamina ReviewI think stamina is great, but it would be better if it had more guided workouts. If there was an actual coach to guide the workouts and even give out technique pointers, it would be better. All it is now is the computer voice which doesn’t coach people. The coach could be prerecorded so you don’t have to film a new session every day. Just a thought. I think it helps out.Version: 3.0.9
Contraction times!I’ve been using this for a week now ever since I got certified last weekend. I have been doing the tables once a day and I already see results. My contractions used to kick in around 1:35 / 1:40 and now I can go well into 2 minutes before having one and I haha e already beat my PB static by almost a minute exactly.Version: 3.0.12
New to dive tablesI paid $6 expecting this app to teach me. This app offers no guidance. I do not understand why it is $6, it is basically a glorified stop watch.
No reason to buy this app when you have to do all your research on your app own and have to make your own tables in the app.
After figuring out the app I do really enjoy it, bummer there is no learning materials. The cost is too high..Version: 3.1.6
UX friendlySo easy to use. I would like to be able to get the alerts even if my phone is on night mode. Also, would like an option to reflect on the session at the end. I’m not using this for free diving, but rather as a personal experiment/ biohack. Love the customizable tables. Attractive too!.Version: 1.9.2
Second Apnea TrainerThe other apnea trainer I had was okay, but I didn't get me excited to complete the training. I only focused on breathing patterns and not co2 or o2 tables like STamina. This app actually gets me excited to train and I'm looking forward to seeing how I improve throughout the next few weeks. Thumps up so far.Version: 1.9.2
New to apnea trainingThis is my first apnea training app, and at first look, it is not markedly user friendly. After setting my first “ personal records” I wasn’t sure if the o2 and co2 tables automatically progressed to improve my performance. After day three of training, it appears that the “generated” tables have not changed from the initial day of training, meaning the apnea time and the breath time in the o2 and co2 times have not changed..Version: 2.0.6
Practicing for combat divePracticing for combat dive training and I figured any extra time I could hold my breath underwater wouldnt hurt and this has significantly improved my breath holding abilities. On my way to 5 minutes and have gone from 1:25 to 3 and a half minutes in about a month.Version: 2.0.9
Seems great but I need helpSeems like an awesome app and very beneficial but the only problem is I think there should be a tutorial to how to work it. I’m still trying to figure this app out as well. Any advice or help with this would be really appreciated..Version: 2.0.9
Good app, wish there was more informationThere are some unique tables like paranayama and Wonka tables but no info about them except a really basic blurb. Like I have no idea how to set them up. I also wish the voice was more customizable because I do audio books while practicing and it can be annoying.
Other than that I love everything!.Version: 3.1.4
Great product. Very customizableLove the product. Starts with simple options but has an unlimited number of customizable options. Wish there were more options for verbal counts. Ex. Every fifteen seconds after 3 minutes.Version: 1.9.7
Simple and easy to useSTAmina creates apnea tables and takes toy through your workouts. It has the essential types of tables, each to use, tracks your training and keeps you moving forward with your breath training..Version: 1.9.8
Great app, but I wish I could use it with headphonesThis app is great for my apnea training, but I wish the audio was connected to the volume on my iPhone instead of the ringer. I want to use my headphones to cancel out any outside noise and really focus on my training. I hope there is an update soon with this fix!.Version: 1.9.7
Best apnea trainer!I've tried many apnea training apps, and this one is absolutely the best. It has lots of ways to customize it, spend some time fiddling with the settings and get it set up the way you want and you're off!.Version: 1.9.8
Best tool everI got this app because I am interested in free diving and it is worth every penny!
It is a great app and using CO2 tables I can hold my breath for 2:20 after using it for two days, before I could only hold my breath for 0:55. This app works and is a great tool!.Version: 2.0.3
APP HAS PERFORMER WELL / NEEDS TO BE MORE INTUITIVETrainings have been fun, just finished a 15min O2 workout and what uses to be hard is more attainable now, my complain is that the APP is not intuitive to set up...does not have a user intro, I just aimed for my personal best and the app generated the training method...I hope im running it the way it should..Version: 3.1.6
Hurts, but works.I wish they gave more than two of their own pre-made training sessions, but the option to create your own is awesome. Made some pretty tough ones to get through. Great app overall..Version: 2.0.0
Very satisfiedThis app has helped me improve my underwater crossovers and bottom samples for military training, and helped quite extravagantly. Definitely worth the buy if you plan on improving your breath holds for any reason..Version: 1.9.2
GoodI have been using this for awhile and I think it really helps, it’s nice than the free ones and definitely worth the money! Get the app if you want to increase bottom time..Version: 3.0.2
Dry Static ApneaGreat app for dry static apnea. I use the custom tables. Easy to program and execute. Please add a notes function for the history of each apnea table training session. I’d like to record the round number when my first contraction came..Version: 2.0.3
Totally helped my divingMy time increased from 1 min 30 seconds to 2 min 45 seconds in three weeks while only doing this every other day..Version: 3.0.12
Great for beginnersAfter figuring out how to generate tables and being consistent with training on a daily level I saw a ton of improvement in my holds. Really helpful to have audible and vibration alerts..Version: 2.0.9
Great training appThis is the only freediving/apnea training app worth money. The website is professional, and the app has customizable training tools to practice. Do not pay for any other app!!.Version: 1.9.8
Good easy to use app!I enjoy using this app! It has definitely helped me with my breath holds. Went from 45 seconds to over 2 minutes in a month.Version: 2.0.1
StaminaThe best app for being able to hold your breath longer it is definitely worth the very little amount of money.Version: 3.0.12
Liking it more all the timeI’m just getting started, but I’m really enjoying the app. I don’t know enough to justify any corrections or opinions yet. Seems to be a really good purchase..Version: 3.0.12
Great for training at your own paceThe 30 sec down and 10 secs left beeps are kind of harsh so I‘d rather it had gentle voice reminders instead. Otherwise, love the layout and interface of the app..Version: 3.4.0
Excellent way to workout while on landI use this as an apnea diver but I think it is important for all sports activities. It would be nice to integrate into an overall sports program app. Nonetheless I am a fan!!!.Version: 1.9.2
Love this app!!I am training to hold my breath for 7 min and this is an amazing app for this or anyone looking to improve breath hold time. I have tried several apps, this one is by far the best!.Version: 3.0.10
Great App!This app helps you hold your breath longer! I’m up from one minute to almost three in just about a month! Would love more features!.Version: 2.0.9
Great app. One suggestionGreat app. Does what it’s supposed to do. One suggestion is more detail on the breath hold test and procedures of practice. Specifics and clarity of inhale hold or exhale hold and simple details like that would be appreciated..Version: 2.0.9
Great for trainingI do these in twice a week and it’s makes a difference great way to practice getting into the zone for those longer breathe holds.Version: 1.9.8
Great app 😀Great app! My breatholds have gotten better and I have only been using the app for a few days. 10/10 would recommend!.Version: 2.0.9
Easily RecommendSimple understandable interface for beginners with easy tracking and appropriate table generation. A wonderful app, absolutely worth the price..Version: 1.9.8
1:51 to 3:07 in two weeks.Hands down the best apnea trainer I’ve used. Incredible results. I would highly recommend to those looking to increase their breath hold..Version: 1.9.8
Love this nifty programFabulous training tool.
What should a training schedule look like
(How often should we practice per day?).Version: 2.0.9
Very usefulI have used a variety of different apps, but this one is by far the most pleasurable to use. Simple and has all you need to push yourself to longer and longer breath holds. Well done!.Version: 3.4.0
Great app, needs more compatibilityAwesome app but doesn’t work with smart watches for some of the workout associated monitoring..Version: 4.1.9
Excellent programExcellent progressive training system due to its flexibility in creating customized programs
So simple to use; excellent program and value.Version: 3.3.3
WowI’m just getting started, so satisfying to do this routine before bed. I have a hard time “meditating” but this feels like the same thing. Really amazing feeling and would recommend to anyone. Who new holding your breath is good for you. So easy..Version: 3.3.1
Simple and efficientThe layout of the app is very simplistic and easy to grasp, but still allows me to do exactly what I need. I would highly recommend this app if you do swimming, because of this app I can hold my breath for 3 minutes like it’s nothing.Version: 3.1.6
Good app, does what it should but lack instructionsIt would be nice if there was more coaching and instructions..Version: 3.3.0
Needs a - how to directions -Needs directions to use generated tables. The progression is confusing.Version: 3.0.10
Few Problems, Otherwise really goodVery nice and helpful app. Just a little confusing to figure out at the start but it’s not too difficult. Also it would be nice to have the voice play in the background while I’m on other apps. I’m not sure if that’s a feature already but if it’s not it would be nice!.Version: 3.0.12
Walk through upgrade?Love the app and I would rate it five stars I just wish there was a walk through of how to correctly use the app for what you are looking for that’s the only reason for the lower rate!.Version: 3.0.12
Good practice for wim hof or breathology trainingSee. Didn’t!:
S has d🗣.Version: 2.0.9
A fantastic appThis app is fantastic and actually helps improve your breathing and breath control dramatically which is good. One thing I will say is possibly have a notification when your session ends because sometimes I lay there for quite a while and I don’t notice I’m finished. Just a thought though and not to important.Version: 2.0.6
Amazing App!I’m 13 and I love to swim a lot. I got this app a day ago and I already increased my ability to hold my breath by around 20 seconds! Not underwater which is good because I heard underwater you can hold it for longer..Version: 1.9.8
Worth the purchase:)I love this app I use it a lot however the only con is that I don’t know how to delete my table.Version: 1.9.8
Would recommend 💯%Beyond amazing app, has everything you’ll need and more. I have been using this app daily for a year and a half now and it has drastically increased my lung capacity as well as my overall apnea time (6 minute increase). My only suggestion would be to add a customization feature for the colours of the interface as well as the timer in action as well. Overall, 10/10.Version: 1.9.2
A+Great app for your dry training sessions!.Version: 1.7.2
