This tool basically notifies you for three different sets of exercises: Desk Stretching Exercises, Aerobic Exercises, and Circuit Training Exercises.
Desk Stretching Exercises come first, as it is the primary focus of this tool to notify you about certain stretching Exercises for 6 different body parts. These body parts include Back, Neck, Shoulders, Hands, Legs, and eyes, as these body parts are most affected due to prolong working on computers. A number of stretching exercises for each of these body parts range from 4 to 9. You can choose from these six body parts for which you want to get notifications and instructions, and also choose to limit exercises per part, between 2 to 9.
Then comes Aerobic exercises, here it lets you feed time for basic aerobic exercises, like Standing, Walking, Jogging, Cycling, Swimming, Skipping, Nordic Bowflex, and you can even add other exercises manually. It lets you add time for two different exercises under @Work and @Home options. You can even feed multiple timings for a single exercise by putting a comma between the times. For example, if you feed 1210, 1410,1610 for Standing, then you will get a notification to Stand at 12:10 pm, 02:10 pm, and 04:10 pm every day. By feeding time with first three letters of any day the of week, you will get notification only on mentioned days the of the week. If you feed 1500Wed, 1700Fri, 1800Sun with swimming option, then you get a notification for swimming on 3 pm, 5 pm and 6 pm on Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday respectively.
It also provides notifications for Circuit Exercises.

There is a default 20-20-20 relaxation exercise for eyes. Here, you get instruction to take a break of 20 second every 20 minutes and look at something 20 feet away from you.
