What happened to free?! 3/5
By personof the light
I have been using 8 fit’s workouts for a few years and love them! I don’t need any of their other features. Why suddenly do I have to pay to access new workouts? 😭🤬 And not just pay, but pay $25/mo or $80/yr. Forget it. I love these workouts but that is WAY too much.
Too expensive but very helpful 4/5
I have trouble motivating myself to workout and to stretch, this app helps me do both. Simple but effective workouts for whatever skill level you are. My only complaint is that it is unnecessarily expensive.
Have to pay to get any usage out of it 1/5
By hearts 69
Any of these work outs you can get on YouTube, and the free ones they offer to you are only 2-8 min long, while the Pro ones are 20-30+ min long, ACTUAL workout length. And the rest of the app is under lockdown, such as meal planning, logging of meals or different activities, recipes, etc. Waste of time. Nobody will read this review bc Apple only pushes the most positive reviews to the top so, I'm preaching to the choir, but if you're reading this, it's bunk, unless you want to pay $25 a MONTH for a plain chicken salad recipe.
So I will update this review to 5 stars if they address one glaring flaw. I am really into working out in THEORY but never seem able to commit to it in my day. I am ADHD and get scatterbrained easily, so I thought if I set reminders according to the routine I want to commit to, it would be a huge assist. Because I’m terribly forgetful and my mind is disorganized! No matter how much I organize lists and calendars, if I forget to look at them, that work was for nothing. So with an app like 8fit that does SO MUCH for you, it only makes sense that you would be able to set long term reminders. Bc right now, if I miss one workout, I also miss my reminder to do the following one. Then I’m going to feel guilt and disappointment for screwing up as opposed to a more healthy “oh well I’ll catch the next one and do my best!” Also, it causes me to make decisions CHRONICALLY rather than in one moment. That is THE WORST thing you can do to an ADHD person! Let me make decisions on a day when my mind is clear, not every time I turn around. Please let us access the calendar feature you already have and allow us to put in multiple reminders for workouts so we can feel encouraged and motivated, and like this little app is our sidekick so we don’t have to go it alone!!! 😄😄😄
Terrible customer service 1/5
My email was compromised. Pressed reset button to have password reset. Received notice that a link would be sent to my email. Days later after attempting several times no link has been received. Therefore still unable to access app. Guess someone is enjoying the app at my expense
By no i wont give a nickname
I loved 8fit up until the point when now you have to buy the prescription to do anything. It used to be that I could do all of my workouts for free but one day I went to workout and realized I had to pay to work out.
Great App! 3/5
I like this app! Please give your UX team a raise! It is beautiful and very easy to use. I love that it includes mental and physical health!!! The recipes look yummy but I selected vegetarian options and they kept giving me recipes with meat lol. Overall I think this is excellent for people new to exercising and/or meal planning. It provides a balance of structure and flexibility.
AWSOME APP 5/5
It is my first day but the app is awsome
The app I’ve been looking for 5/5
8fit is truly amazingI have been looking for a a long time for a health and fitness app that kept a balanced, holistic view of health, and this is it! I love that the meal plan is full of DELICIOUS recipes that keep me full all day. The recipes alone are worth the price of a subscription, they are so yummy and easy! And I really appreciate that the workout program starts at a truly beginning level! This is a tool that will equip you to reach your health goals, whatever those may be! Completely recommend :)
Usefulness replaced by greed 2/5
Like most other recent reviewers, I have been a long time user - up until now. Common app model with the basic workouts free and enhanced nutrition and planning mechanics in the upgrade plan for those that need them. Usual pop-ups and weekly invitations to join the Pro program, which while slightly annoying were par for the course with this type of model. Unlike most other workout apps, there is a coherent weekly/unit plan stressing different energy systems and this is a clear two steps up on most of the random collections of workouts that pass for a fitness app. Not perfect and some mistakes remained even after reporting (90 sec max sprints for raw beginners) but still better than most other apps.
Now in the middle of the 2020 health crisis they decide to replace the existing system with a full subscriber model to the $25/mo plan or blindly cough up $80 for a year. My gym membership is $25 a month and offers far more than this app ever can. Of course, it was just forced to close again and I do not think the timing is coincidental with the change in financial model. You can call that view cynical, but it is not possible this was not thoroughly discussed. The normal model would be to invite users to try for free as the New Year rolls in and resolve is high, then shift to a pay model once committed. The $25 per month is ludicrous. No one is going to pay it and begrudgingly opt for the full year instead. Surely that was always the intent. Mine is to delete the app after I submit this.
Shopping list feature gone with update? 4/5
By Strange Biller
I was recently forced to update my 8fit Pro app and the shopping list feature is gone. Am I just missing it or does anyone know how to access it with the update? I can’t find any support email or number for the app.
Nice App 5/5
I love how this app has workouts you are able to follow. The challenges are fun series of different exercises and they have a nice variety. I wish it was cheaper to use this app. I have a free three month trial and I am loving the app, but have a hard time justifying paying for it when my trial ends. We shall see. I wish it was easier to add meals in the sense you could search from a database to find certain foods/meals. I also wish the walking/steps from my Apple Watch transferred over. It would be nice to add a feature where you can see how much weight lost over a period of time (like a graph). Other than this, nice app!
I used to subscribe and enjoy this app, but now they've changed it so much, and the new “models” make it so i have to look at gross unhealthy people while trying to get healthy. Ugh
NO LONGER FREE 1/5
i used to love this app & recommend it to EVERYONE in my life, but now they locked the workouts they had for free that i used daily. unfortunately i can’t afford to pay for the premium, and because of the COVID-19 pandemic, it seems like my only option to get a workout is now gone. we are all struggling right now with our mental health, and this was really helping during these difficult times, and you have taken it away from us. please consider unlocking your workouts again for those of us who can’t afford to pay the premium.
I love this app!! 4/5
I really do enjoy using the 8fit app. If I could change anything, I would add a daily tracker for macros so I could keep track based on the recipes I select for my meal plan. Other than that! Love it!!
Billing Issues 1/5
Beware of this app, the company tends to charge you even if you canceled your membership & im yet to see a refund. They don’t have a number to call & everything is via email. Last year when upon my first attempt to download and pay for the app, even though I got an error, I was charged. I assumed the charge did not go through and tried a different card, but turns out I was charged twice on two cards for one membership. I never got my refund back upon multiple requests. This year I stopped my renewal ahead of the renewal deadline and I got charged anyway and 8fit ‘doesn’t see it’.
I wanted this app for meal planning as a vegetarian, was extremely disappointed to see that they don’t post new meals or recipes and their collection is below par. Not impressed and left with a terrible experience.
Don’t run into the same issues as me.
Please bring back the more free program options :( 2/5
I have been using your app for years now. I have really liked all the free program options that you had and have helped me stay in decent shape and I loved it. But now A LOT of the free programs are gone and I don’t have as much options now. Can you please bring them back
BEYOND FRUSTRATED! 1/5
By W of C
Sooooo disappointed!!! 😢
I’ve been using 8Fit for MANY years and have responded to their requests for feedback to improve the app on numerous occasions.
Today, all of a sudden, after completing the Champion Level V workout program (just as I’ve done NUMEROUS times before) I now have to subscribe and pay $25 every month in order to do ANY of the Champion Workouts OR anything other than the basic level of the other workout program!
I’m very saddened to say this but I can no longer recommend this app to friends and family. The developers no longer give the impression that they truly want to help people improve their health and fitness but it now appears they are more interested in getting money. Very sad that an app that I beyond LOVED and used on a daily basis has changed so drastically and suddenly!
The worst app possible 1/5
I used to follow their workout plan in different levels, and now after the new update, they made them a part of the premium! They took away literally the only part of the app that was useful!
Would be great if iPad supported Landscape Mode 3/5
This is a good app, but it lacks the ability to be used in Landscape mode on the iPad. I’ve reached out to support and not getting very promising feedback from them.
I love it. 5/5
I have a competitor app also and tested them together.
I find 8 fit easier to use, it includes trainers of all shapes sizes and skin colour which motivates me even more. As i feel like its just a regular workout partner.
Goals are more realistic to edit and stick to.
For people with disorders this is a good app.
There are not many dieting culture triggers and no starving on 1200cal diets.
Love that it has all fitness types from very advanced to us even with mobility issues :)
Thank you 8 fit, the new update is fantastic and looking forward to keep using 8 fit
I love this app 5/5
I started using the 8fit app by accident over 2 years ago. I just came across it when I was searching for ways to lose weight. I started using the app in August, and by November I had lost the weight I had set out to lose! What surprised me was how much food you got to eat! Now, fast forward and I am keeping the weight off and am really focusing on the workouts..love them! I would highly recommend this app; it might take a little bit of work, but it’ll be worth it!
Great App but no support to help change CC billing. 2/5
Beware! —-I really like this APP for my workouts. It helps with planning meals and getting in a great workout in a short amount of time. But I do want to throw caution out because I’ve been struggling for 2 years trying to get the annual billing straightened out so I can apply payment to a different credit card. I’ve had to continue paying annual fees on my credit card, just because of this one APP. iTunes doesn’t have record of my purchase, so I’m thinking maybe I went through Google for some reason. I’ve tried to figure out how to change my password and the instructions they give in the Q & A aren’t of any help and if you reach out they just send you to the Q & A area again. When I reach out to customer service they cannot tell me anything except for that they do not have anything to do with billing. I have NOT been able to locate where to change my billing credit card info. Last week I closed my credit card account, so we shall see what happens when they go to bill me. I caution anyone about using this App if it is so hard to manage your account. They need to upgrade their system. It’s really a shame.
Love this ap! 5/5
I’ve been using this app for a couple of years. I’m nearly done with my second round through the program. I love that they’ve added classes nearly every day and different challenges. There’s also so many different circuits to choose from - a variety of hiit, Pilates, yoga, light weights, boxing, etc. If I don’t feel like doing my program, I change it up and pick a class or another circuit to try. I don’t use the meals regularly. I have tried some of the meals and have liked the ones I’ve tried. I like that they tailor the recipes to the calories you should be eating. It does make you think more about calories if you’re trying to lose weight. Overall I’ve been very happy using this app.
Hooked for life 5/5
By Sandman's a comin'
I have had the 8fit app for about 5 years. I started with the free app and used that for a couple of years and then finally paid for it. I’ve never regretted my subscription. It’s totally worth the money. I am a mom of six kids and this app works so well with my busy lifestyle. I can grab a quick workout when I need or spend longer. Through the years, 8fit has added and improved their program. I love the live videos. The coaches are professional and awesome and I feel like I’m in the room with them and really part of a
So gorgeous 5/5
It so great exercise keep you in shape and gives you a strength 👌🏻
Used to love this app until today 3/5
I have a pro account and the main reason I pay for it it’s because the sleep meditation was the best thing I got from it. I struggle to fall asleep sometimes and this app worked its wonders but today can’t find the feature anywhere. Looks like I will be cancelling my subscription. What a shame
Update: I truly appreciate the response from the developer and the fact that the meditation I use everyday returned. However this was short lived since the ned update got rid of then again and incorporated a new list of new meditations for different things. I think it’s great to add variety but unfortunately the one I was using is gone. It’s a great app so I hope it works for others
motivating and life changing, helping me find balance and inner peace 5/5
8fit is a truly wonderful app! I have the premium version and I use this app SO much, 100% worth the money for me. Finding 8fit has given my physical and mental health journey so much purpose. I find myself consistently motivated to workout with less guilt and more bliss. I can’t quite put into words how grateful I am to have found this app that is helping me find my inner and outer strength.
Wish it had more but what it has is good! 4/5
I am really enjoying the full body workouts! Even the ones that have exercised that are hard for me. I feel like I’m starting to get into shape. It’s only week two but I’m feeling better.
That all being said, I wish I had access to a couple more features (maybe even just meal log) with my free account. I understand the need to have more personalized features assigned to a paid account but I feel like at least the meal journal part would be really helpful for me. I just cannot afford another annual charge.
Thank you, 8fit!
It’s okay. 2/5
I wish I can add my own recipes on the app. And ask that it syncs with my Apple Watch
Great app 4/5
Had this on my Android phone. Now that I have an iPhone, I had to download it again. Wish it came on my Apple Watch.
Possible breach of sensitive data 1/5
Have got an alert from a financial institution that your website “8fit.com” has breached my email to dark web. How can you explain that?
UNAUTHORIZED CHARGES 1/5
I was charged $30 even though I have a FREE plan. I have contacted the company via email and called their office. I have yet to hear anything back.
Great for beginners too! 5/5
I had a significant life event and ballooned up over 100 pounds, and had severe mobility issues. I started using 8fit, because the idea of an 8 minute workout sounded like a good place to start. I wasn’t wrong. Given that I was terribly out of shape, they start you off with some really easy exercises you can do when your strength and ability is limited. There seems to be a range of workouts that will take you to much more advanced workouts too. I like that there is a progression, every workout has been more challenging than the last in a very dynamic way. I recently subscribed to pro, as well, so that I can get access to more varied and longer workouts. I don’t know if the meal planning is for me (some of these recipes are really weird), but it’s worth every penny on workouts alone. I definitely recommend this app for those trying to get back to some level of fitness!
This app is virtually useless unless you purchase the “pro” part of the app which is outrageously expensive in my opinion. I can have a traditional gym membership cheaper. I’m all for paying something every month, but dropping $25 a month , $60 for 6 months or $80 for a year is a bit steep for those of us on a strict budget. What you get for the basic is just a basic workout. You can not access any of the food plans or pick a workout. I so wanted to love it.... but ended up disappointed instead. No sense in keeping the app when I can do a basic workout online or through prime, which is free when you are a prime member.
Great workouts and meal plans 5/5
I’ve been using this app for 2 years now to keep me on a healthy regimen, and it’s been so helpful to keep me motivated! My initial goal was to lose a few lbs, and when I follow the workouts and meals on this app, I get results.
I like that the workouts don’t take too much time out of my day, but still make me sweat. And the meals are all delicious, and there are hundreds of quick, simple recipes to choose from.
Free Trial 1/5
I was just charged 79.99 for this and I cancelled the account. Please refund me immediately.
Good stuff but could use a few tweaks 4/5
Love most of the app. It has a huge variety of workouts, which is great. Would be nice to be able to filter those more - fitness level, time required, area of the body, etc.
Also, i love how it suggests a specific exercise of you're trying to edit one of the workouts. It'd be nice if the app did that for meals too. That way if I want to change something out, I can still try to stick to my diet.
Reason for 5 stars 5/5
My Review 5/5
It’s a great app
Shady App! Subscriber Beware! Look at 1 star Ratings first 1/5
Signed up for a pro- subscription at 39.99p/y
This year renewal charge 59.99
8fit did not give an email notice of charge to be made and most especially that they were increasing the amount than what I initially signed up for.
I reached out to them and they said they would ABSOLUTELY not reimburse any charge after renewal date. That’s fine but to charge me 20.00 more and not at least reimburse that not right.
My advice: Go with a company that is honest with their subscribers!
I know this App shows a lot of high ratings but I wonder if all the low ratings are showing. Please give the one stars a look before deciding to invest in this app
By Bob Piccione Sr.
Just started but looking forward feeling better
Super disappointed. Workouts are now without music and yet subscription fees remain the same. Please fix it!
Aplicación demasiado de buena
Not Much To Free Version 2/5
App description makes it sound like it has so much to offer, but certainly not in the free version. A lot of other apps would be more worth your time as well as web-based groups. We all know how frustrating it is to click on an apps feature just to be accosted to payout to use it.
8fit Review 5/5
By Ray kurzweil
8fit is amazing. I feel so good after these workouts
What happened to the workout music?
Fraud app 1/5
Great app 4/5
Very easy to use and I love the recipes.
I wish that there was a way to assign a certain meal for certain days of the week more easily than having to go to each day one-by-one & changing the meal. For example: “Assign meal to MON, WED, & FRI for breakfast” For this reason, I gave it 4 stars instead of 5.
