This app is a joke 1/5
By Ms. Botwin
Are you kidding me ?! I don't need an app to tell me I can take a picture of the machines so I can keep track of my work out and, all thats going to do is take up storage space on my phone. I don't need the app to find locations either. That's what I have A smart phone for.. This app is completely useless. Horrible horrible horrible
Can't connect with my fitness pal 1/5
The Facebook login for my fitness pal connection doesn't work. :(
Needs Apple Wallet 2/5
By F~N Dave
Would be nice to have Apple Watch and Wallet support. The app is pretty useless.
Bad. Very bad 1/5
I can't even log into it as first time. Keeps saying error, information not found. (Yes I did check, double, and triple check the barcode)
Sells your email to junk mailers!! 1/5
I have to change my email address that I've used for 15 years because ever since I downloaded this app I've been flooded with junk emails. I'm so angry!
Arc Trainer 2/5
Please add the arc trainer on the app for tracking workouts!!
Too many flaws 1/5
By Capt. Hammer
The only benefit is my card number barcode. Outside that it is a worthless app. Got locked out and I can reset password online, but app wont accept new the one.
Workouts only sync with other apps one direction. Loved I could take pic of display at end of cardio machine workout and it would save, but you cant export to other apps (myfitnesspal). Only will import from it. Still relies on the website running behind the scene for features.
For such a large company, very disappointed.
Circular logins 1/5
1. New to the new app? Register.
2. Oops, that email is associated to an existing account.
3. Log in. Oops, that account or password is wrong.
4. Reset password?
5. Can't do that.
6. Repeat until frustrated.
Seriously, you can't SCAN the barcode?
App is so sloooow 1/5
I like what this app has to offer, but lately, every time I open it, it takes forever for anything to load, and then it times out and I have to start over. Twice now when using the wifi at the club, the app has said "no internet connection", when my phone clearly shows that it's connected to wifi. I've had to switch wifi off to get the app to even open to record a workout.
No Apple Health, not optimized for 7+, AND multiple logins for useless data... 1/5
Love PF, and my wife and I are brand new members... HOWEVER- this app should be tooled to help the user track weight loss/fitness goals through apple health or at least give you feed back that can be utilized elsewhere... instead it is just an isolated island. Also, there are SEVERAL machines that don't even scan!!! Have to repeatedly login, and all for almost nothing! Come on, Guys!!!!!
By Elijah Olmos
Overall: Gets the job done (needs improvements)
I want to be able to track when I visited a Planet Fitness facility. The app is fine for when I forget my barcode, though.
App struggles to do the most basic of things 1/5
I'm really disappointed in this app. Difficulties logging in and using the functions. Not worth the frustration.
Stick with MFP or some other activity logger.
Good But Needs Work 4/5
By Audrey N H
I use the app 4x a week to record the cardio portion of my workout. It's great if I'm using it for something that is built into the app...but there are some cardio machines that are not listed in the Snapshot not the Manual Recording sections (ARC Trainer is one example)...or it may be listed in the Snapshot list but not in the Manual Recording section. I am off the opinion that ALL of the cardio machines should be in both lists. Furthermore, results should be measured in the app as they are on the machine. If the machine measures miles, the app should (and does). But if the machine measures steps/floors , the app should also measure steps/floors.
Please work on these things!!! This stuff is common sense/logical. C'mon guys!!!
Needs better functionality 1/5
1. It is not allowing me to enroll into a class from the "PE to PF" tab. It keeps displaying an error.
2. It would be nice if the app was more interactive, there's nothing on the app that makes me excited to come to PF. Maybe add some personalized PF tips, if possible a counter to let others know how many people are currently at their home gym, a water counter, something that coordinates with your customized plan for your trainer, just SOMETHING! The app is very boring.
Doesn't work 1/5
By Jerrod S
Hasn't worked for 3 days now pretty crappy app that never gets fixed
Horrible app 1/5
Does not work
Snapshot not working 2/5
I've sent in multiple reports about the workout snapshot not working, no response. The screen just stays black, and I can't even tap to take the pic. I use to use it ever day
Add pass to wallet 2/5
Please add the function of adding pass to Apple Wallet.
Needs work 2/5
By Lil Nuffcedd
Treadmill needs to be added to the exercise type when entering manually.
How in the world can you have a password field into which you cannot paste text? What an incredibly stupid UX decision. Have you never heard of LastPass or the like?
The snap workout feature doesn't work. You can scan your workout machine and it's supposed to take 1 hour to post on your app but could take up to 24 hours. I've been scanning my workouts all week and none of them have posted or appeared which is very disappointing.
It's OK. Need an Apple Watch app 3/5
It's a good app. I use it almost exclusively to sign into the gym with my barcode. Needs an Apple Watch app
Does not share data with Apple Health 1/5
It would be most helpful if the "snap a workout" feature shared that data with Apple Health. The app is not very meaningful in my lifestyle management without this feature. It is siloed into itself.
Need an update 1/5
By Dr Mike
Need an update IOS 10 !!!!!
Too many logins, not enough actual use 1/5
You have to log in to about 4 or 5 different screens within this app. And once you finally do that, you don't really get any functionality. PF Store takes you to the web page. Can't manage points. Can't manage your account. You can "track" workouts, but the data is worthless.
The ONLY thing this app provides is the ability to have your membership barcode on your phone. That's it. Everything else you can get to more easily from your internet app on your phone.
By Joe Hundredaire
You can definitely tell that this is built on an iOS 7 code base; nothing beats being on an iPhone 7+ and watching it try to upscale software that was written back when iPhones were still only had four inch screens. Makes typing anything a lot harder too, because the keyboard it pops up is comically oversized and clunky. The app offers social media integration but predates modern Facebook APIs, making it unnecessarily difficult to log into. Their locations don't have uniform support for PE@PF, so parts of the app don't work at my gym. It's a cute attempt at modernizing the gym experience, but it needs a massive back end rewrite at this point.
Needs Wallet/Passbook support 1/5
This app would be so much better if I could send a membership card to apple wallet
No support for Apple Watch but supports about 4 other devices. 1/5
By Big D 1556324
And no support for apple health kit. Major fail.
Needs Improvement 2/5
Overall the app is a good idea but the implementation falls short. I belong to 2 clubs, one near my office, the other near my home. The app assumes you only have one membership so there's no way adding a second barcode. It would be nice to see real time updates to busy times so I can avoid times when the club is busy. Also, the app should allow you to keep track of work out performed on the machines and in the free weight area as well as things like sit-ups, push-ups, etc. The app assumes you only want to record cardio.
It won't create account 1/5
By Mr Vacxa
Tried many times to create an account, even changed my card and it still says that it can't create an account
Tried to set up an account. It says I have special characters in my last name, so it won't let me. Really?!
Could be better 2/5
Overall I like the idea of the app but there is room for improvement. For example, I would like to free text my workout such as adding notes for what machines I did and how many reps/lbs. Another thing that is useless is the pf@pe link. My home club is new so it doesn't do anything. One additional thing that would be nice is something that shows the busy times in the club. There was a sheet of paper in the club with this info so it could probably added easily. Hopefully, improvements can be made and it will be more helpful.
Planet Fitness App 1/5
Unable to get the App to load on my iPhone 6S plus.
App is useless. Need Apple wallet pass too. 2/5
I'm new to pf and this app is less than useless. I used cardstar for getting in the gym since they don't have Apple wallet support. I dot even see what the app does.
Apple Wallet 4/5
I think it would be beneficial to be able to add Planet Fitness to your wallet so you don't always have to have your card with you.
Good features but one flaw 3/5
I do like some of the features like check in, videos. Was excited to see there is an interface between PF and MyFitnessPal...BUT...in my opinion, the interface, which only works in one direction, goes the wrong way. I'd like to be able to take a pic of equipment panel and have the workouts load into myfitnesspal. Instead it only feeds from myfitnesspal to PF
*** The crasher*** 1/5
I am having problems with this app. Planet fitness app. It keeps crashing. I use it in the morning just fine but, by the evening it tells me I have to login again. This is about the fifth time in the last two months. Help me if you can. Thank you and have a blessed day.
VERY DISAPPOINTED 1/5
Like others have said - I want the ability to log my workouts on the machines- # of sets, reps, lbs used. This app is virtually useless. Please fix this!!!
I've tried to make an account and it's says it can't find me in the system and I just sign up today at the gym
Half Baked 2/5
This app is like so many. A rush to get on the app bandwagon without really investing in the user. Any app worth downloading needs to enable all the features available to iOS developers. If you want to enhance my PF experience, make the app proactive for one. My card is uselessness on the phone if it's not instantly available on my lock screen. This can only happen if the developers enable Wallet and geofencing. Even better, sign me in automatically when my presence is detected. (If they can do this at Starbucks, make it happen here). Also, the app needs to tie into Apple Health. Data tracked needs to be accessible through the phone. Again, to be a convenience, apps need to be proactive. I really don't need another app wasting my time. Please do some work on this or it goes in the trash pile.
By Xerxes 103
The app is absolutely terrible! Can't create an account. Since I've joined it keeps saying error when trying to create an account!
Check-in is Nice 3/5
The only thing about this app that I find even remotely useful is the ability to check-in by displaying the barcode on my phone. THAT is a Godsend, however, because it makes it so I don't have to keep the card in my pocket. I use it every day (I go to the gym 7 days/week).
Like others have stated, it would be really, really nice if PF would make this available in Apple Wallet, so I don't have to install another app just to get the simple functionality of checking in in on my phone. I do all my activity/calorie burn tracking via other apps.
Won't let me login
App lost my login 1/5
Not only did it lose my login but can't login with the temp password that was sent.
Won't let me login
Needs improvement 1/5
There needs to be a way to track all your workouts. Taking a picture of the treadmill display is not the same.
I love PF 5/5
By GET A LOAD OF THIS
POF IS AMAZING
There is no way to record your daily workouts, reps, improvement, etc.
You would thing that a popular fitness gym would have an app with the ability to record your progress per machine.
Would be real nice to scan each machine prior to using it then scan it again after your done with the set to record how many reps and how long you have were on that particular machine.
Unless its improve in the near future, i keep searching for a real workout app.
Can't reset password 1/5
I just changed phones and wanted to set up the app on my new iPhone. I tried the forgot password button but I can't type anything into the email field to get it reset!
The main purpose seems to be to sell memberships! Unless I'm missing something sets done on machines like leg presses have no way to be added for counting in a routine. I'm new to exercising and it is important to know how many reps at what weight I did today so the next time I can try to improve. I had to find a separate program for that.
We live on the road so I would like to be able to make notes about the different facilities such as do they have hydrotherapy, are they truck friendly, etc. There is no such ability.
We bought our membership online and until we actually got to a facility we couldn't access all the features. Since it was a holiday, it took three days for the computer to activate us so we could get our card.
