Abs-olutely in L❤️VE 5/5
By tiu gracefully
I am in love with this app! To be honest at first I was not happy about the announcement of the app, but I took the 7 day fee trial and was hooked! I'm not a gym member and prefer working out in the comfort of my home especially since I'm short on time. You only need a few things as far as equipment goes, and even if you don't have anything they suggest alternatives. You can communicate with other TIU girls before and after your workout if you want too, or you can workout and go. They have on demand classes you can take any time or classes you schedule at the top of each hour. I have been following TIU for over 5 years and they always get better and better. I highly recommend this app!
Functionality disappears without Chrome cast 3/5
I like the concept of the app a lot, but the functionality disappears if you don’t want to buy chrome cast. I’ve tried to screen mirror my iPhone to the Apple TV so I can do the classes that way but the video turns white and disappears after a few seconds. Which means I have to do my class on the tiny phone screen or not at all-and that’s just annoying
Great app - even the free version 4/5
This app is great for keeping track of workouts, doing the daily moves, & figuring out the weekly schedule! Some improvements for 5 stars: classes on the half hour, weeks starting on Monday (instead of a Sunday reset) like EVERY OTHER tone it up calendar, having an option to set checkin to “home” when inputting where you did your workout, & a search bar to log any TIU workout. ie: “I did Love Your Booty at home.” Would also really like a place to see old texts from the app. Once I unlock my phone the message disappears.
Great app! 5/5
I absolutely love this app! I was in a workout rut and was looking for something new, but fun. I had done tiu before but never a formal rotation. I decided to try studio tiu and I LOVE it! It's fun, easy to follow, and the workouts are challenging. K&K and all the other instructors are encouraging, relatable and make the workouts even more enjoyable. This program is making me love exercise again! It's just what I needed
So Much to Love About this App 💛 5/5
I just crushed my workout for the day, all thanks to this app! Seriously this app does everything I’ve ever wanted from a fitness app. You can keep track of your workouts ever day, by logging workouts. If you complete an workout within the app, it records it for you automatically (win!). So far, there are new works uploaded weekly, plus a tool within the app to filter workouts based on time and difficulty. I love working out with all the different trainers each day, it really helps keep things fresh! Definitely worth the upgrade to a subscription. Thank you and keep up the amazing-ness, Tone It Up!
An effective workout! I don’t have to guess what I’ll do at the gym next time I go or spend tons of time researching workout. These ladies have done it for me! They tone not only my muscles but my confidence and strength, inside and out! Love you guys!! 😂💜
Post workout chat gone? 4/5
Maybe it's just a glitch with my phone or maybe studio babes left class early but lately when I hit chat after my workout nothing happens the screen doesn't change to the chat side....?
Love the app. Keeps things fresh and me motivated 😘
So glad I joined the studio! 5/5
It’s been great so far having the flexibility to work out anywhere with my phone. I love how everything is organized and easy to get to. One peeve: I would like to use my wireless headphones to listen to the studio classes but it always just defaults to my phone speaker 😫
Best Thing That’s Happened to TIU!! 4/5
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this app! Being a Tone It Up girl since 2015, I’ve definitely had my fare share with the premium workouts.. almost all of them😅. I’ve squatted, curled, and did countless deadlifts with K&K these last few years. It’s so exciting to finally get to do workout with the whole TIU Community in one place! I’m so thankful I found TIU, it’s changed my life in so many ways, and the response to this app makes it clear that thousands of other women feel the same! 💕 I would love to see the app expand to classes on the half hour! It would fit my schedule so much better for both my morning workouts & in the afternoons. A food/water/Meta-D tracker would be amazing too, especially for Nutrition Plan Members!
Love the workouts 4/5
By Duckey Lu
Love the app and the option that if you miss a studio class the same class is on demand. The one item keeping me from giving the app a 5 is the activity is often incorrect and un-editable.
So addicting! 5/5
When it comes to working out, I’m a person that needs accountability and a program to follow. When the app came out, I did the free trial and fell in love with the Tone It Up community all over again. Knowing that other people are sweating along with me (especially at 5am) makes me feel like I’m not alone in this journey. Also, the chat feature is amazing! **Note for developers, My IG handle has changed since I signed up but I’m not able to change it on the app (blue section under profile photo). Hoping it gets fixed on the next update!
Worth every penny 5/5
By Christy R. V.
I was a little bit worried about spending money on a workout app per month, but after one workout I was hooked! They have created another great product for their TIU community! I do not go to the gym because I used to pay a monthly membership, but never show up! Being able to wake up and basically do a workout as soon as you roll out of bed has made all the difference to me. Within the app, you can track how many days per week you workout plus encourage and support other women via chat before, during, and after the workout. Can it get any better?! If you don’t have time for a “live” class, you can choose from multiple workouts broken down by category, which makes working out SO much easier. Everything is all included in this app. Highly recommend!!
Good but would like more features 3/5
Revising my review after trying the app again after a few version updates. I like the concept and the workouts are good! A few suggestions:
1) it would be nice to have a “friends” section that allows you to see the people you workout with or message frequently, so that it’s easier to find them (rather than having to search each time).
2) add an an option to share your weekly schedule with friends
3) for some reason, after I do a class it doesn’t register as one of my weekly workouts like the daily moves do. It would be nice to have this feature.
4) incorporate the nutrition plan and meal planning in some way
5) add more flexibility around studio class times (ie. allow me to enter the class if less than 5 mins late or something like that)
6) add a fitness journal section that lets me rate the workout, how I felt during after, etc.
7) add a section for tracking victories (scale and non-scale) through the app; or a Set the Bar section that pops up every two weeks and walks you through the set the bar workout/tracking! I would really love this feature!!!
Thanks so much!
Great workout app 5/5
I love this app! I love the fact that we get so many different workouts to choose from and it’s just going to keep increasing!
One thing I would love to see in the future is the daily workout in the on demand section. I am not always able to workout right at the turn of the hour. Sometime it’s at the half hour or somewhere in between. I notice that if I have to wait for my workout I lose motivation.
Thank you again for a great app!
Love love love! 5/5
By Ms. Laila
This app is fantastic! Love the support of the women, all the different workouts, inspirational quotes, and that you can literally do the workouts anywhere. I’ve done 10 minute abs during my lunch break! Totally worth every penny 💗
Pay to watch? 1/5
Why the new charges? I don't think it's fair to the people that paid $120 (or more if you bundled) to be a member of TIU...
Love it!! 4/5
I love this app! I love the idea of being able to join a class with other TIU girls. I would love a feature where we could favorite videos to refer back to later, I love some of the workouts more than others and would like an easier way to access them!!
I love this amazing app the trainers are so motivating and i can take it anywhere and get my workout in and if I’m not feeling that class i can go on demand and choose any workout that I’m feeling for that day. But the best part of the class is that so many ladies are doing the class with you too. So worth the money! Great job Katrina and karena!
Great workouts! 4/5
I love the workouts available and the option to do a scheduled class or an on demand workout. Definitely recommend this to anyone looking for challenging and fun at home workouts! It would be great if there was the option to download the on demand workouts in case I’m traveling or don’t have access to WiFi. I’d also love to be able to save or bookmark my favorite on demand videos so I don’t have to scroll through everything. Those changes would make this a 5 Star app for me!
Nice Update 3/5
Love the app and the workouts! I wish there were classes every half hour instead of every hour. Waiting for my class to start - I use the app for convenience and to use when I am available.
Don’t love the monthly fee for workouts that are not led by Karena or Katrina. I really love them and their workouts and don’t have the connection with the other instructors.
TIU doesn't want me to workout 1/5
My third and final complaint.
As ready as I am to commit to the workouts and this app and even the payment. Every time that i get one step closer to working out, something in the app doesn't allow me to do so! Here i am about to start the class, and a pop-up opens saying, "payment required" ok.. according to my apple subscriptions you already have my card information so why can't i workout? I am feeling very disappointed that i finally cancelled my gym membership and was excited to embark on the TIU journey but TIU continues to give me obstacles and not allow me to use the app for what it is actually made for.
Trying to use this app and it just keeps going back to purchase , I. Want it and I agree to purchase and it doesn't allow
Love the App-Having Problems with Videos 3/5
Love the app and the workouts, but I’m having trouble with the videos playing properly 😕
Video screen is minuscule for anyone to follow a video workout 1/5
App needs improvement so videos can be magnified or played in full screen mode
Videos are so small on iPads 😩 2/5
I just downloaded the app and joined the studio...I’m excited to start working out but the videos show up so small on my iPad. Like one inch square. I can’t see a way to adjust it either. I can hear everything fine but am a very visual learner so I’d like to be able to make the videos full screen, or at least half screen and see more than the bottom of the video. Please help!
Cyber Monday sale 2/5
Seems like a great app but I signed up tonight and the app won’t let me sign up for the Black Friday deal
Love it! But needs Apt. Friendly Cardio 5/5
I have really been enjoying the different workouts and trainers and love how easy it makes it to follow a workout schedule. My biggest complaint is that many of the Cardio/HIIT workouts have too much jumping for people who live in apartments with downstairs neighbors. More kickboxing, dance, kettlebell and other quiet cardio please!
Love it 5/5
Love the daily quotes! Love the daily worker tracker it's motivating.
Disappointing, needs tweaking 2/5
So far I’ve had my free subscription for less than 24 hours and I already have a few issues with the app:
1. We should be able to view workouts on the app from DVDs we already paid for, or the ones that are free on YouTube. Why would I pay and subscribe to see videos I can already watch for free?
2. I thought the point of subscribing was for full-length new workout videos daily. I signed up for a “30 minute Total Body” class. It was 7 minutes of a new video of Katrina doing an arm workout with resistance bands I don’t even have so I had to modify most. And the rest of the 20+ minutes was a video from a DVD I already have! If I wanted to watch that DVD I do not have to wait until a certain time of day to tune in.
3. We should be able to log past workouts in case we forget to enter it one day. This is frustrating you can only log one workout/day. Is this an attempt to force us to log in every day? We don’t need to be micromanaged.. we can keep ourselves accountable and be honest about whether we actually worked or or not.
So far my experience with the app has been hugely disappointing. Definitely will not be subscribing. Not even close to a replacement for a real gym membership for me.
What’s up with the update? 5/5
It told me I needed to update, I did and it still tells me I need to update. And then crashes.
Pumped to get fit! 5/5
Love the TIU app and community. Although, I’ve followed Karena and Katrina for years I started using this about a month ago. Love the interaction in the chat rooms. Always positive and encouraging. Helps keep yourself accountable.
Yeah for studio workouts maybe more nutrition 4/5
I do love the app and being able to pre schedule my workouts so I don’t forget about them. I do wish since we are now paying monthly for the access that more of the nutritional plan was available through the app.
App won't open 1/5
So I finally starting to really like this app and was looking forward to doing the workouts but now it won't open. The app keeps telling me I need to update it but it won't update so now I'm stuck in this annoying limbo. Anyway my view of the app from when it did open...the workouts are really fun but I wish the studio classes started on the half hour as well. Also I wish the nutrition plan was more incorporated in the app or maybe there could be a separate app for nutrition.
Love the TIU app!! Has been working great. Only problem is now that I updated it does not let me into the app?? Will say needs to update in order to be used but I did update it. App will open but does not work after that. Takes me to update page and shows that it has been updated but when I click open it does not open, remains frozen on that page. Hope it can be fixed so I can get back to the studio!!
Love this app! 5/5
Great to have at home and perfect when you travel! Love it! Thanks TIU!!
Seems exciting at first but is lacking 3/5
I was excited about a TIU app. I check the website multiple times a day and look forward to the posts. I was hoping the app was going to be basically the website in app form (but better!). Disappointed in that. I was then hesitant to pay for the app. I like new workouts to keep things exciting and keep me motivated. It seems the only way to get consistent new workouts is with the app. I have BB5 and Body Love and then see that some of those workouts are on the app. Feels like I'm paying for something twice. And many workouts have a different name on the app, which makes it seem like you're getting more new videos but are actually not. Some workouts are actually 2 workout videos in one which makes it confusing. Not all TIU workouts are on the app so I am switching between the app, YouTube and the website. It takes that much more time to plan my daily workout. Incorporating more into the app for consistency and ease of use of all things TIU, especially for members, would be great! Excited for new updates and improvements to determine if I continue my membership.
LOVE IT, but... 4/5
This app is great and I love that I have access to everything all in one place and the new workouts are great...however I wish instead of the mirror option for the Apple TV, it was AirPlay...I find that with the Mirror it is constantly freezing on the TV every 15-20 seconds which makes it pretty much useless...I don’t have this issue when I use airplay with any of the Beach Babe videos or premium workouts I have purchased in the past. Please fix this issue!
Good app for variety of workouts 4/5
Search function (under “on demand” tab) no longer works. Huge bummer for me as I like to follow the weekly exercise plan but find the scheduled workouts to be glitchy. Hope it gets fixed soon. I love the TIU girls & this app - I use it daily!!
Everything is for pay 1/5
Ultimately you can see how pretty this app is but there’s no example of what it is before you pay. It looks nice...but I’ll pass
Love the app but iPad issues 4/5
By Lea tones it up 💪🏼
With the crazy price of gym memberships $12.99 a month is a steal! I absolutely love the tone it up girls and support them because they support women in the most genuine kind of way! I’ve had their nutrition plan since 2012 and still follow it!! Is anyone else having trouble with the app on the iPad? It works great on my phone but when I try and do workouts on a bigger screen on the iPad I can’t make the videos Bigger to fit the screen and it cuts off half of it any ideas how to fix this?
By Mattie tap
I can't open the app on my iPhone. It crashes every time. Sad because I really wanted to try the workouts.
110% Worth It! 5/5
I absolutely LOVE the Studio Tone It Up app! It offers so much versatility with the dozens of workouts and I love the new trainers. A lot of people are upset that they have to pay a monthly subscription fee for it but I think that it’s seriously worth every penny. The quality of the content is fantastic as always and the option for on demand classes that you can take anywhere, anytime plus the in-class option where you get to workout with TIU girls around the globe brings it to a whole other level. And they are always adding new content! You can tell Karena and Katrina put their heart and soul and a lot of hard work into the development in this app.
Love the app so far, but one question 5/5
love the accountability of the schedule, but do you have to do all the classes on the hour? What about the half and hour, Can’t seem to find the weekly studio class in the on demand section
Be cautious with the auto renew option! 1/5
I downloaded the free trial, and on the last day of the trial (not the next day) I found an email from the iTunes Store with a charge for $114.74 for a year auto renewing membership. After double and triple checking both the app and Tone It Up website, I never saw anything about the app defaulting to a yearly charge, only referencing the monthly charge of $12.99 a month. Working through this with Apple right now but wanted to give everyone a fair warning as this seems very dishonest!
Just what the TIU community needs! 5/5
By Whit Nels
Studio TIU sets you and your fitness goals up for SUCCESS w/ ease of weekly workout scheduling, constant NEW & fun routines, the ability to schedule workout times & take classes with friends. Thank you, Tone It Up!
Clunky app 2/5
My search bar disappeared from on demand workouts and this app drains my battery by 50% using it for 30 min. I want to love it so bad but it’s hard with how clunky it is for the price
Great Idea but still some issues 3/5
The app is a great idea, however I feel that I'm constantly having issues. Twice in the past week I have been unable to do my workout. The latest time, I opened the app right at 6:00 for the 6am studio class, however it was only giving me the option to join the next class at 7am. There was no way for me to join the class and I wasn't able to complete my workout that day. Another time, I accidentally closed the app halfway through and was not able to get back into the workout. I am very frustrated I'm having these issues just the first week in.
Love it but... 4/5
I love using the app to workout but only being able to use my phone is frustrating because it’s so tiny. Being able to make it full screen would be better. I downloaded it to my iPad to see if that helped but it’s actually worse. You can’t even see the video on the iPad just the description and timer on the bottom. Hopefully and iPad fix will come soon!
Love this app!! 4/5
I am loving this app!! Love being part of the tone it up community. The only issue I have is when the work outs change half way through we don’t have time to take shoes off or put them on. Or have any notification to do so. The first workout may be a full body work out requiring shoes, then the second part maybe yoga and it goes right into it with no time to take my shoes off with out missing part of it.
I like it but... 3/5
By WI TIU Girl
I love the Tone It Up videos on demand from this app. However I wish I could watch the videos on my Apple TV. The app needs improvement to make it work better on iPads.
