It won’t even load a workout 1/5
I’ve been on this app for the last 45 minutes. It takes forever just to get a list of work outs. Then when you try to play or download a workout and you can’t. This defeats the purpose of the app. I’d love to do a workout.
App doesn’t airplay since update this month 2/5
Since updating the app this week, it’s not streaming to my Apple TV. Please fix!!
Great most of the time 4/5
I’ve been using the Beachbody app for probably over a year now. It was definitely glitchy at the beginning with trouble loading it and pauses during the work out but it seems to have improved. There is also an issue syncing to my Apple Watch but that seems to have been fixed too. Overall I really like it!I especially like that I can take it anywhere and do my workouts on the go
So slow! 1/5
The app is SO slow. I feel like I could do half a workout in the time it takes to load. Annoying!
Worthless iPhone app, great workouts 1/5
Get used to seeing the “thinking” hourglass/dumbbell. The most recent update took out any usability for me. I deleted and reinstalled it to see if that helped. It did not and I lost the workouts I had saved during that process. It won’t open for me to re-download anything.
To the developers: When will you figure this out? So many of the reviews mention problems with the app.
Edit: I found that if I give it enough time the app may eventually open. I’m going to start calling it Focus T35 because of the extra 10 minutes to get the app working. But now I find that when a workout stopped mid-download I can’t restart it because it tells me I’ve already downloaded this workout. Awesome...
Great on iPad/ crashes on iPhone 3/5
This app is great except it always crashes on my iPhone. I don’t seem to have this problem on my iPad though. If this can be fixed it will easily be 5 stars.
Great workouts horrible app 1/5
The workouts are fantastic but I’m rating the app and frankly it’s pathetic. Guys get your act together! The app interface is terrible. I touch icons trying to get something to happen and nothing works. The videos are terribly slow to download if they download at all. I have to stream to workout which does not always work in a public gym. Please fix your app or I have no incentive to renew my membership and I can’t recommend this to any of my friends.
80 day 5/5
By Hank Gillette
this workout rocks
Great but, could be better if they added some more features... 4/5
I saw the 21-day fix app and that’s a great idea - why isn’t that incorporated into BBOD app? Add start photos, measurements, keep track inside the app? Also, I’m doing the PiYo and T25 hybrid workout schedule and I don’t know why there isn’t a way to select that workout and then every day I get a reminder of which workout I’m doing that day and to motivate me to get going - then after I’ve done it it’s automatically checked off on my calendar. Are those features you’ve got or could maybe incorporate?
Love it when it works 3/5
I love Beachbody and love the concept of having BOD on my phone but more times than not I can’t getting anything to load. It usually just spins and spins and spins. I wish it was a little more reliable.
Where is the support for 80 Day Obsession on the Apple Watch? It only goes up to Day 7
Not impressed 1/5
The concept of this app is awesome. I have been and continue to be a huge Beachbody fan, but this app is so inconsistent and unreliable, it is very disappointing. If you want people to workout, make sure your app works and had the capacity of individuals using it. So often I open it, and no workouts load at all. Other times, it might be working, but the quality of streaming is poor or it will skip and replay during the workout. Annoying!! I'll keep using this if bugs are fixed and it is improved!
Love the workouts, hate the App! 2/5
I’m having the same problem as everyone else; I need to delete it, then download it again to make it work. Then it works for a day or so, then it won’t open again. So then delete, re-load again, on and on. Hey Beachbody - you need a new app!!
One year later. Will they ever spend any money on this app?Still terrible. Bugs. Downloads are bad quality. Etc,etc
This app never gets updated. It's frustrating to use.
The constant rotating dumbbell on iPhone 10 is super annoying. The benefit of Beachbody is time and convince but trying to get a workout to actually play negates the benefit. Very disappointing.
Convenient but HR monitor pairing frustrating 3/5
The core streaming feature is pretty solid but the Wahoo Tickr pairing that was previously working for me seems to be having issues now which is frustrating. I get a message on my phone that Bluetooth is not available even though it’s on. Not a deal breaker as I just use the Tickr X with its own native app, but it was cool to see heart rate in the BOD app.
I’m encouraged to see they have made a bunch of updates recently and rolling out new features. Hopeful they finally get the bugs ironed out soon.
Blurry videos 2/5
BOD is nice to have for the simple fact you can choose from many workouts and do them when ever it is convenient for you. But how can you perform a good workout when 80% of the time the video I'm streaming is blurry??!! This is especially difficult when doing a workout that is fast paced (like focused T25)? I've used the app on both my iPhone and iPad and have same results. Frustrating at the minimum and infuriating at the most when it takes 10 minutes or more to get a workout video to even begin loading! And who has an extra 10-15 minutes to monkey with the app so it will just load a workout?
I also expected a little more variety and more workouts to choose from. I do a BOD workout 3-5 days a week and have since end of December 2017, but am now seeing that it is difficult to find workouts that don't include dancing, yoga or extra equipment beyond weights and a mat.
Would be willing to pay to keep app if it were to work 90% of the time-where it loaded in less and 2 minutes and wasn't blurry. Beach Body will you work on fixing this??
Great workouts, terrible app 2/5
This app is really buggy. About a third of the time, my workout just won’t load. Often even if it loads the video quality is terrible, despite a fast internet connection. And I have to hard-quit the app every time.
Needs better descriptions and filters 2/5
By Hawaii lovin
I’ve used several ‘workout apps’ and here’s what’s missing on this one:
1. Being able to FILTER by SPECIFIC WORKOUT ACTIVITIES (ie, legs, upper body, yoga, boxing, leg strengthening, etc). Instead you have to search through ALL the trainers and find something that MIGHT work. Which usually doesn’t. Which leads me to the 2nd problem ...
2. Be more SPECIFIC in the description of the work out, so you can ensure it covers what you want that day. Other apps list each activity (ie mountain climbers, 10 burpees, 1 min of down dog, etc). Here’s an example of the description this app gives: “Ignite your quickness. Burn the fat.” Uhh what? So in order to determine what the actual workout is, you have to pull up the video and fast forward through it to see what activities are included.
3. Filter by TIME. So all workouts, regardless of trainer, appear if you search say, “25 to 30 minute workouts”
It takes a good 10 minutes to find a good workout. Come one Beachbody.
Keeps crashing 2/5
I love beach body programs but the applications keeps crashing and I keep losing the downloads because I have delete the application and reinstall it. I can’t go back to the main page after I finish with my workouts, so it ruins my mood and momentum if I want to do another work out. Seriously! Fix it soon
Not working 1/5
It doesn’t even let me log on when using my app on my iPhone. Please fix
I want to love it 2/5
I really enjoy the workouts so far, but the apps functionality are lack luster. When using the phone turned sideways the video doesn’t rotate both ways, only one way. If you’re watching a video and your phone turns upright you’re stuck up right unless you exit and relaunch the video.
Better compatibility with Apple Watch is critical. I paused a workout on the watch and the phone 4 times and instead of pausing it calculated the full time, four times- so my watch thinks I worked out 4 times for 78 minutes each.
I worked out today and it shows the accurate workout on my watch but not on the phone app, so it didn’t sync up properly.
Needs another update 1/5
By King Mouse
Since the last update I am unable to access my off line saved workouts. It shows I have them saved but the access screen shows nothing saved.
I am unable to access these programs I saved at all since the latest update please repair this problem you created
Too slow 2/5
Great content when the app works and loads he videos. Waste 10-20 mins each workout trying to get video.
Love Beachbody but the App Needs Work 3/5
By Zillow Rocks!
I’ve been a huge BB fan for about 15 years. Love their workouts and they have knocked it out of the park with this 80 day obsession! I love having access to every workout on the app, but I constantly need to close it out and reopen the app for it to work. I get logged out at random times. I’ve never had it crash during a workout though, so that’s good (other workout apps have been known to do that).
Also, I can’t get my iwatch to sync with the app, even though BB says it’s supposed to.
Hopefully they can fix these little annoying glitches soon.
Worth every penny 5/5
I use this app everyday! From the workouts to the cooking show! I work out in hotels all over the USA. Just finished a quick weekend in Sedona AZ and the app performed without a glitch!
The app worked amazingly at first. Now it’s not. When I go to play a workout and I check the waver it still won’t give me the option to accept. I’ve re started my phone, restarted the app, I even deleted and reinstalled the app. Nothing has worked.
By jax NC
I love the workouts but the app itself is sometimes a pain in the butt... At times it takes forever to download videos when I really don’t have the time to wait that long. Other times it works great... I wish it would work well all the time though
Apple Watch NOT working & Storage issue! 2/5
Just tried syncing with my Apple Watch and iPad and using my iPad to workout and tracking thru my iPhone and it's still not working.
Update: watch sync is STILL an issue AND now when I try and download it tells me I’m short on storage which I am not! PLEASE FIX!
Doesn’t work at least once or twice a week 2/5
When this app works it is great. But the problem is it fails to load a lot. And this happens a least once or twice a week I sign on and only the top manner shows up. The rest of the page is blank. I have to delete the app and reinstall it. This is very annoying. I feel that Beachbody has grown into too large of an corporation to have this rookie glitch happening all the time. I love the company though. I’ve been doing Beachbody since Power 90 with Tony Horton. That’s why I give it 2 stars instead of one. Team Beachbody.. y’all are too big for this. Get it together please
Love the program, hate the app 1/5
Love beachbody, hate this app! This app never syncs with my Apple TV and very rarely works with my Apple Watch. The functionality of it needs to be consistent or you are going to lose customers due to the sheer frustration of closing and reopening apps 20 times only for it to still not work. I’ve tried all the redownloads and am overly frustrated.
Great workouts 3/5
I love the variety of workouts and the trainers. I just wish that the workouts that I download would work. The downloaded workout videos do not work at all and is very inconvenient when I cannot connect to Wi-Fi
By Sheri Moran
I have been using this app and Charlene's workouts since November. I love how thorough she is with her explanations. I also can say this is the first workout program where I haven't experienced one injury. I follow her instructions exactly and am really enjoying the benefits. I am excited to continue with my workouts.
Love it 5/5
By V watson
I use this all the time home or when we travel, I love it! It helps me make sure I don't miss a workout and stay on track.
App not working 1/5
Every time I open app. I get the weight bar loading. Please fix
Amazing... when it works 3/5
I’ve completed several of the Beachbody workout series and am so pleased with how my body has changed. With how much I travel, the on demand option seemed like a great opportunity to not miss a beat. However, half the time I try to get into the app, the dumbbell just keeps flipping and flipping and eventually goes to a blank screen. When I say half the time it doesn’t work, I mean half the time. Even when I’ve pre-downloaded workouts, that tab has the flipping dumbbell as well. I let it sit there for five-ten minutes or so, to be sure it’s not just me being impatient. I paid a lot of money for this, it would be nice to be able to use it!
Love it but it needs work on Apple Watch 3/5
I love the convenience and variety of workouts (except the gross trainer who grabs butts and makes comments). However, although they have improved functionality with the Apple Watch, it still is inconsistent and usually doesn’t track well. Please fix it!
Good app and great programs. But every morning that I tap on the BOD app, BOD wont connect and I have to restart my phone for this app to fully function. I don’t believe that the last update fix this problem because this is an ongoing situation. Please fix.
80OB love it 5/5
App states Not supported URL when login 4/5
I’m on an iphoneX. When I sign in, a red box pops up with a msg of not supported url. So I can’t login. I don’t have trouble on the web, only the app.
Thx for bringing great workouts!!! Love turbo fire and the Pro trainers being different workouts. Please keep adding more.
I spent the money for 6 months access since I knew I would be out of connectivity for the next year while doing research in the field. After trying for three weeks with great Fios internet I was able to only download one workout. The app kept crashing or having issues. I talked to customer support and they were unable to help me. Now I’m in the field, no BB workouts and down $60. Highly disappointed and not happy about wasting that much money.
80 day obsession 1/5
Only the first 7 days out of 80 are on the iwatch. We are on day 22 and can’t get the work outs on our watch. This app is never consistent.
Love the unlimited access 4/5
I love the concept of the app but have had issues with the app freezing on regular basis. It has been better in the past week but still occurs every day. Thought it might be my internet access but not having any issues with other streaming apps.
14 day trial 1/5
I downloaded this App and took advantage of the free 14 day trial to see if it was something I’d be interested in or not. Not even a week later my account gets charged $43. So much for a trial period.
Beach Body App 5/5
By KMC Puckey
I love the beach body app and use it quite often in my hotel room. The streaming works great and I end up with a powerful workout just like I'm at the gym in a group class. I would highly recommend this to anyone. Beginner, intermediate or expert this app is awesome.
Love this Platform for Exercise Nutrition and Personal Development 5/5
By Movement Mama
You will not be disappointed in this program of materials that helps you become your best most amazing self.
Plus there is a money back guarantee so what do you have to lose. Do it. Change one thing today. Your future self will thank you.
iPad version does not stream well 2/5
Every time I use the app at home, (iPad) on my WiFi, the app freezes and lags. Been getting worse and worse... I resort to the iPhone version to avoid anger and frustration.
Great content but lousy app 2/5
I’ve been a fan of BeachBody’s workout programs for years, starting with the original P90X. I was excited about the app, with its ability to access the programs online, eliminating the need to carry discs with me when I travel. But, unfortunately, the app has issues that greatly limit its usefulness, and support is abysmal. For example, I was able to download four of the five workouts in A Week of Hard Labor. But I cannot download the fifth workout (Legs). I’ve called support twice; the first time they said that they’d look into it and get back to me. After a couple of months with no response, I called again. They found my original inquiry; the tech was able to reproduce the issue, and said that this is a known problem with that particular video. No estimate as to when or if it will be fixed. A month or two later, still not fixed. It’s kind of useless to only have four of the five workouts available when I don’t have streaming access.
Watch fails 2/5
I love beach body on-demand as a program but it never synced correctly with the watch to track my workouts! Ever!
The app won’t even load, so it’s useless to me.
