Can’t cancel trial period 1/5
I’ve tried multiple times to cancel during the trial period. Went they the Apple ID process and cancel trail is not offered. Not using app at all. Disappointed.
Simple to follow, self paced, enjoyable!
Don’t do it! Charged for the free trial on first day 1/5
Literally on the signup page it says you have until the end of the free trial before getting charged. Well now I’m $60 into this app and won’t even be using it! There’s no support to get ahold of the quickly. Worst decision I ever made was to download this app.
Love it! 5/5
Quick but intense daily workouts. Excellent, customizable meal plan with lots of food options. I’m very picky and found plenty of meals I enjoy and that are healthy.
I am already seeing results from just one week use
Totally recommend! 4/5
I love love love this app! I am lazy by nature and a chocoholic who was blessed with a speedy metabolism. Then I turned 25 and realized I cannot eat like a dump truck anymore without working out. I have tried other apps, but they just didn’t motivate me and were either too easy and I wasn’t seeing results, or I just didn’t like the overall layout of the workout plans. Come 8fit. It is my savior. The workouts are so fast that there’s never an excuse to not do them, and I’m always drenched in sweat and left with Bambi legs. I love that it’s so tailored to your own needs and body. I’ve seen great results in absolutely no time, and I feel like I’m well on my way to that toned body I’ve always wanted, but never quite found the motivation to get. The only reason I’m giving it one less star is because I would totally pay for premium, but it doesn’t let you pay monthly. It’s an annual lump sum, and to be quite honest I don’t want to pay it all up front. If you change the payment plans, I will give the last star and definitely pay monthly for this godsend of a meal and workout program.
Great for keeping you on track 4/5
The app is really great for keeping you on track with how much you’re supposed to be eating. My only problem is the step counter is WILDLY inaccurate and doesn’t sync to apple heath very well so it’s not correct
I’ve never really worked out, ever. I walked a lot, miles and miles. But I’ve never worked out and this app is amazing. It’s starts you off at ground level helping you build up muscle that you’ve never had before. The workouts can be intense if you want them to be. I love this app so much it has changed my whole view on nutrition itself. The news that you get on the app is so informative and helpful. Explaining why things are good for you or not good for you. Explaining what the food do for you and how they help your body grow and work. It’s truly amazing and this had changed my life.
Could not sign in 1/5
It said acct already exist. I tried resetting password. Nothing.
Difficult to cancel your membership and contact customer service 1/5
They make it really difficult to cancel your membership. You can use the money you spend on grocery shopping and use free websites to create different meal plans and the workouts aren’t good. There is no form of customer service. Please do yourself a favor and do not pay for this app.
Being Healthy on a Busy Schedule 5/5
Such a practical workout set and so much assistance with meal planning. I’m a full time grad student and work full time, and I’ve never come across an app that helps me meal prep, creates new workouts tailored to my goals, and helps to keep me on track throughout the day. For busy people, this app gives you the power to make a change without dedicating hours a day to workouts and meal prep, because nobody has that much spare time.
Can’t complete registration 1/5
I agree to the terms and when I go to sign up, it says it’s loading for 1 second and then disappears. I cannot get past this screen. I’ve tried restarting my phone, the app, uninstalling then reinstalling- nothing works.
Not bad if you don’t know how to work out 4/5
All in all this is a good app to put you in the right direction as far as working out.
This is great for:
- People who don’t have time to work out
- People who don’t want to waste time trying to figure out what to eat
This app is NOT for:
- People that have been working out consistently (cardio and strength training)
- Muscle gain
Biggest positive: Easy meal recipes that follow whatever your diet consists of.
Biggest negative: If you have it linked to your Apple Watch it will give you a terribly inaccurate view of how many calories you burned.
The only reason I downloaded the app was to check out the meals. Well, you have to subscribe and pay for that. Uninstalled the app after 10 min on installing. I’m not paying for something I can get for free online.
Enjoying it 5/5
Im a few days in, but enjoying it. Workouts so far are interesting, as the app/trainer keeps mixing it up. Good stuff.
By testy terone
I’m 42 years old, I have four kids under the age of eight and not much time to get to the gym or even do a full video. The short workouts give me a healthy sweat and I know I’m getting good bang for my buck with regard to the time invested.
No free trial! 1/5
Charged me for a subscription the day after I downloaded the app! Can’t find any way to contact them about a refund. BEWARE!!!
This app get me pumped for the new year
Can’t beat a free workout plan 5/5
I love this app! I don’t have time to go to the gym so this app is perfect for me. The workouts are short and effective and can be done at home with almost no equipment. I have not found a better workout app for the price.
I feel deceived. 1/5
I only downloaded the app because I saw an ad on Instagram that said Quick Easy Meal Prep recipes. But after wasting 10 minutes entering my preferences, I realized that you have to pay. That’s really annoying. I suppose the app is good if you need a workout app. But that’s not what I downloaded it for so I will be deleting it now. If you’re looking for a free meal prep app, don’t download this one.
I wish I knew you had to pay $60 to do this past the 14 days... you should put that in your info.
Don’t waste your $ 1/5
You can’t even track steps with Apple Watch & Info doesn’t transfer from iPhone health app. Meals section was not worth it. Can’t customize my meals or track them in any way. If you need recipes and have $60 to burn go for it!
Cannot pass terms and conditions 1/5
Just upgraded the app and I, too, cannot pass the new terms and conditions.
Great, if you sign up for a monthly plan 🙄 3/5
I saw the app advertised and I deceived to check it out, it’s honestly a cool app and helpful but the problem is you have to pay a monthly fee to get access to even a meal planning system that is tailored to your preferences, the same goes for a lot of other features in the app.
By lil duck 24
SO many bugs. I’m paying money for an app that crashes every time I try to mark a meal as “done” or change a meal to one I wanna eat. Makes tracking my meals super difficult
I had higher expectations for the app. I.e help with meal prep by selecting food options then app generating grocery list. I was also hoping to use the calendar to set up my workouts and meals with reminders. I’m not sure if the app can do that. Needs some improvements. Not worth membership at this stage in development of the app.
Feels good 5/5
By Daniel Seavey fan
It really helps my body feel stronger and healthier. 😁
Love it. 5/5
By Shannon Bordeaux
This app is so user friendly and I never get board.i love the workouts they are not to long but they are effective.
More sizzle than anything substantial 1/5
Just downloaded this app and tried the workout for the first time today. Several problems with the app.
First thing is that this app is designed so I am always looking at my phone during a workout, which is silly. I wear a Bluetooth headset, and expected to have audio cues including current rep, number of sets remaining and other workout data available during the workout instead of just beeps.
Second is that the warm up exercises need to automatically advance to the next exercise instead of waiting for me to tap the button.
The warm up and cool down exercises should be integrated into each workout instead of waiting for me to select them and tap though multiple screens to get going. Too much interactivity is required which is a motivation killer.
Finally the exercises are too easy and the calorie counts are way inflated. I don't think I burned 300+ calories in the 14 minute Tabata routine.
Great for meal planning! 4/5
I ACTUALLY like the meals! Which is huge for motivating me. I love that it’s an all in one app. I can log my meals, exercise, and do some reading on health.
My only suggestion to give 5 stars would be to have an option to put your calorie goal per day when you are first setting up your profile. If it would automatically choose meals to meet your calorie count goals that would be heaven! Oh and also a reminder to drink water or a water log of some sort. Honestly, this app is great. Super motivating, easy, and fun to use!
please someone tell me why it won’t let me pass the terms and conditions
This app I very expensive. And u are never warned that it isn’t free until u are have way through the process of signing up. Little disappointed. I’m sure it’s a great app though.
By NC Pearl
Given no local gyms and being burned out on the same video workouts, figured I would give this app a try. I’ve been hooked for several months and have no regrets - in fact, never felt more satisfied with my progress and ability to hit my goal! This has actually stuck with me and hasn’t been a fad. Various workouts keep it interesting and I’m excited to work out so I can see what the next level holds. Awesome app!!
This app really helps me to exercise 5/5
By kyungwon kang
I use this app for three days. Short time(6-10min) workouts are just what i needed. But i feel the lack of variety of workouts and workouts for people whose knee or elbow hurts. I have a bad knee so i don't want to do squat or lunge. I hope there is alternative workouts for the people. Thank you!
Helpful but has some room for improvement 4/5
I’ve been using this app (free version) for nearly a year and have really enjoyed it for the most part. The unpaid workout videos are helpful, especially for the fact that they show real people doing the moves and not simply animations.
The best feature about this app, I think, is that you progress through different levels. I haven’t found too many workout apps that do that, so I’d always get discouraged in the past if I, as a novice, had a tough time during the workout. Now I have something level-appropriate and that has kept me really motivated.
There are a few opportunities for improvement, of course!
-Older versions used to let you set a weekly goal (e.g., work out 4x/week) and you’d get a little congratulations message if you met it. That was a nice touch that I miss.
-I haven’t found a way to edit past workouts. So if I mis-enter something, oh well, just have to live with it.
-Since the last update, a lot of the calorie counts seem wonky. I do elliptical during the week and a half-hour is around 380 calories. 8fit used to agree with this, but since the update it says it’s around 200 calories. Also I just did a Reps workout that says it burns up to 294 calories, but it ended up being 126. That’s a really big difference and it’s not clear what the disconnect is. Realigning these counts would be really helpful.
-There used to be a lot more free videos that have since gone behind a paywall. I get that the 8fit team needs to make money, but that’s just a bummer.
Perfect for busy moms! 5/5
By Mom to Ali
Often the last thing I want to do before I put the kids to bed is get back in the car and drive to go workout. This is a great, quick way to burn some calories in a little bit of time. Love this app!
Free Version Not Bad, Gets The Job Done! 4/5
The free version of this app suits me fine. I have this loaded on my iPad Pro. I was very athletic and worked out regularly until I was hit with chronic illnesses when I turned 40. Needing to get back in shape I found the basic and intermediate workout plans a good way to start now that I’m 50. 10 years of missed workouts have taken a toll. My previous work out plan was a combination of free weight strength training, cardio by cycling, and core floor exercises. My current plan has me doing a lot of calisthenics, floor work, and other non-weight or non-gym machine workouts, which is good for me. I’ve also added planking and other floor core workouts such as the superman and others like it. I’ve regained my motivation and now I look forward to working out every day like I used to. Soon I’ll be back to the weights and using mostly dumbbells doing isolation type exercises. I also used stretch bands for toning, stretching and isolating certain muscle groups. At one point I could benchpress 225 for two sets of 15 no problem, do 50 push-ups, and 15 to 20 overhand grip pull-ups. My weight at the time was between 195 and 210. Currently I’m at 198. At some point I would like to be able to benchpress 225 again, not for bragging rights, but just to see if I can get back to where I was 10 years ago. Currently I’m not overweight but I have lost my muscle tone and some basic functional strength when it comes to lifting things and doing semi strenuous work outside or around the house. I can see this app and the workout programs getting me back on track to jump to the next level. As I progress I’ll move my difficulty level upward to continue to improve and slowly fade in parts of my old workouts.
Pros: This app puts you on a schedule if you want to be. No more missed workouts and you know what you have coming up for the next day or two if you wanna look that far ahead. Good explanation videos on how to perform the exercises. If you’re unsure, Google how to do them. Easy to track your progress and look back on the specific exercises you have done in the past.
Cons: I use this app on my iPad. However, this app will not rotate like others on my iPad to give me the wider landscape view. Not really a big deal, just looks like I have a giant iPhone now when I use the app while working out. I checked around all my settings and there was nothing I could select to get this to auto rotate. That would be something you guys could get out on your next release. The diet plan is not bad but due to my health I have a very restricted diet. When I selected the things I can and cannot eat the app kicked me out and said that I need to select more things. That should be updated and another diet called the “SCD” or “Specific Carbohydrate Diet” could be added. It’s a great diet or food plan for those with autoimmune diseases, inflammatory diseases and even autism. Other users should Google that and take a look.
Overall this is a good app, I like it and it seems to be working for me. With any workout plan or diet plan, you get out of it what you put into it. Dedication and commitment are key, if you truly commit yourself to bettering yourself, you will succeed!
Thanks for providing such a useful app! Happy health and success to all!
Be Well, E...
Changes Recipes 2/5
Every time I change a recipe for the meal plan and leave the app, it reverts back to the original recipes that I didn’t want.
Great for people with dietary restrictions! 5/5
I have IBS and I’m vegan. You can put in all the foods you can’t eat, and it will give you recipes to suit your lifestyle! Asks how often you’ll eat meals, which I do because I meal prep. It also suggests based off of your kitchen skill set. You can replace the ones they suggest and search their recipes! The last thing I’ll say about the food part is every major ingredient has an alternative. I never thought I’d find such a helpful resource for my dietary restrictions. The recipes are really creative and adjustable so now I’m not eating the same 5 meals on repeat.
I’m still exploring the workout section but the videos are super helpful. The most helpful thing is when you’re doing different kind of reps, it will let you know when to switch to the next kind of rep. Also you can choose a music genre to accompany your workout! Oh, and you can do all of this at home with limited space. I was living in a small hotel room for work for the first couple months I used the workout part of the app, and I never had to go out to do the suggested exercises, which build on each other really well.
Honestly, this is the best and most well rounded health app I’ve ever had. I’ve actually saved money by meal prepping and not eating prepackaged, definitely saved way more than what I’ve spent on the app. Well worth it.
I LOVE THIS APP 5/5
By CxsG ceccedbhdc
It gives you your own coach and you go to the next exercise at your own pace and there's just so much flexibility! You make your own schedule where you work out and it has music you can listen to and your coach on the app is so encouraging ! Would recommend
Extremely Buggy 1/5
I originally paid for the app to get the meal planning features about 6 months ago. At that time, I would have rated the app 5 stars. I just recently renewed my subscription, and I have found that the meal planning sections is now filled with bugs. The app will not update selected meals or the shopping cart for the meals. This makes the app unusable if you want to use it for meal planning. Unless these bugs are fixed, I would not recommend this app.
I love it 5/5
I love this app very much. i’ve never been too happy with the way i look and this definitely helped me feel good. i recommend!
Tried it and P90X it is not. 2/5
Trialed the Pro version and cancelled it.
I did the first 18’ workout. It had 4 exercises each having 8 sets of 20” duration with 10” rests. The exercises were:
1) prone Tricep extension (start in plank, elbows in like a military push-up but lower your elbows to the floor. It claims to work triceps and shoulders but military and diamond push-ups work same muscles with much less strain on elbows, IMHO) It also seems odd to begin with a “tri/delt” exercise instead of a push-up that works core, chest, shoulders and arms.
2) jump squats,
3) bicycles (abs)
4) Jump Knee Tucks.
Before the workout begins, the app lets you select a music genre or no music. Choices were: Pop, Throwback (90’s 00’s R&B & Pop), Feel Good House (dance music), EDM (club/dance), Hip Hop. All were uninspiring. This is an iOS app with no integration with iTunes to pick one’s own playlists.
The 20” work and 10” rest timers during the workout are helpful but the set counter only appears in the 20” work screen when one should be focused on working out. It disappears during the 10” rest screen.
The app does all 8 sets of an exercise before moving on too next exercise - no option for circuit training.
The app claims to be offering a HIIT workout but 20” intervals feel rather short for that purpose. One is confined to the 8 sets and 20” intervals, at least for this workout.
Respectfully, Tony Horton and his P90X 1-3 workout programs and Beachbody.com on-demand streaming have set a standard for state of the art HIIT for strength and aerobic conditioning, and flexibility training this app doesn’t meet.
Difficult to cancel 1/5
I signed up .didnt like it .wanted to cancel in 5 min .it won’t let me .it said they can’t cancel on my behave .tried to delete my account .they said my prescription is still active .i hope they don’t think they will get a dollar out of me .i will go to the court for it .bc they think they’re slick .! Dishonest .dont sign up !!!!!!!
Update Has Messed Up Meal Planning 1/5
This app has been great up until the January 2019 update. I only use it for meal planning and meal prep. After updating calorie portions are off when browsing meals and when a meal is selected the function to increase servings no longer works.
Just did it! 5/5
By Lange girl
I just started today and already have a 6 pack. Never going to regret this 🏆
Meal option not working 2/5
I always click on “done” or “change” under meal option, but whenever I reopen the app later, I see that the thing I did before did not register. So, in otherwords, I click on done for a meal and when I re-open the app a little later, you see that the “done” didn’t register.
