I agree, it doesn't print. When I printed as instructed. It printed the first Exercise 5 times. Not realizing it, I went to do the workout and much to my surprise. So it took me over an hour to re print them by copying and pasteing Too much trouble!!!!!

The far right icon in the line of icons above (where you can Facebook like) is the print command. Success! It prints each exercise on a page, so you have to bring each exercise up and print individually.

Left click on the Print icon; control left click (PC) or command left click (Mac) to open in a new window. Then go to file print on your web browser. This works for me.
