Using the 'Start Workout' trigger in Shortcuts

Asked this on the Automators forum but nobody answered do I thought I’d try my luck here…

Does the Personal Automation for Start Any Workout or End Any Workout only work on the workout types listed? One of the workouts I do uses parallettes which I classify as a ‘Gymnastics’ workout. When I start or end that workout the automation won’t fire.

Any thoughts?

Looking at Apple’s documentation any workout should do.
They even say there’s an “any workout” option

Looking at this the limit might be to choose “any workout” as the trigger instead of a specific one?

Well…there’s the thing. I am choosing “Any Workout” and it still doesn’t work. I’m wondering if Any means “any from…”

  • Alpine Skiing
  • Cooldown
  • Core Workout
  • Cycling
  • Dance
  • Elliptical
  • Functional Strength Training
  • High Intensity Interval Training
  • Hiking
  • Other
  • Rowing
  • Running
  • Snowboarding
  • Stepper
  • Swimming
  • Walking
  • Wheelchair Run Pace
  • Wheelchair Walk Pace
  • Yoga

or if it means Any from the entire list of available workouts (notice that “Gymnastics” isn’t on the above list)?

I’ve tried it as well, and I actually think this is broken
None of the items work for me as a start/stop trigger
