Love it!! 5/5
I love this app! A 30 minute workout makes you feel like you are on top of the world!! The trainers are motivating, sincere, and all around make you feel like you’re the next world champion. I’m definitely on track to reaching my fitness goals!!
So motivating! 5/5
Aaptive is amazing! I would have never been able to complete a half marathon without it. The music is great, the trainers are motivating and have very clear instructions for strength training, and there’s a ton of variety. Well worth the subscription!
OH MY GOSH 5/5
By Bretta Jade
This app is EVERYTHING!
One star because.... 1/5
I was interested in trying out the app to see how I’d like it and it wasn’t bad. But I cancel it a few days cause I wasn’t ready to pay for it (and I only had app for two days) now why let the customer know it’s a month free trail, but still charge my card after just two days of use. Pretty much misleading....buyers BEWARE!!!!
Great app with room for improvement 4/5
This is perfect motivation for those frequently bored with workouts. The ads are right: this is perfect for someone who needs a trainer to get them going at a fraction of the cost. As the app grows, having more categories would be useful. For example, some elliptical tracks are designed for machines with arms, some for more stair-stepper like ellipticals. Knowing which one beforehand could be useful.
Bad downloading with app on watch 1/5
Won’t download onto my Apple Watch. Constantly stops downloading. I got this product so I could use my watch and not run with my phone. But it seems that this product is not good for that....
Great workout app 4/5
My only request would be video of the exercises as well. This is audio instructions only.
Worth It! 5/5
At first I deleted this app because you have to pay to keep the services (30 days feee trial, then $100 a year). A few months later, I was looking into having a personal trainer. Decided to give the trial a shot. I’m so glad I did! Though I’m still in my trial, I plan to purchase the year-long subscription. I believe it’s totally worth it! This app coupled with the LoseIt app has changed my life.
Love this app! The coaches are amazing and I love that the workouts range from beginner to advanced! Definitely worth every penny!
Good but be mindful 3/5
It’s a good app but they really should send you a reminder before your free trial ends... a lot of people are going to forget about it for 30 days and seeing a $105 charge pop up on your bank account is very alarming. I guess I’m stuck with it for a year tho 🤷🏾♀️
By Sarah Althea
Fresh workouts, motivating trainers and music! I never thought I could get such a good workout on the elliptical. I'm usually just trying to muddle through the minutes. And it gives me direction in my strength training routines.
Love this app, especially the yoga workouts with Ceasar. I hated both yoga and running before I tried this app, and now I do both. Workouts are also added frequently enough that I don’t get bored with it.
Awesome workouts! 5/5
By Ms Sweden
Used to be super fit and fell out and gained 30 lbs in about 2 years. Been wanting to get my body back and bought a treadmill so I can work out from home because I have a little one. But doing it in my own didn’t quite work and I lacked motivation.
So when I saw the Facebook ad I knew I had to try it. Since my first workout I’ve worked out consistently and I love the different trainers and workout options! And I know that once I get a little stronger new challenges are available!
Love the Concept but the Music??? 4/5
Firstly, I love this app. It's so functional and very well-designed. I try to use it as often as I work out. I saw great results with a trainer and this is the best supplement to that structure as I can find. I have only ONE grievance. Please allow for more variety in the music!!
Is there any way this app can run in tandem with my playlist on my other apps (SoundCloud/Spotify)? I'd love to listen to the trainer's voice over my own choice of music. The music choices are so awful. It's the only thing keeping me from giving this a perfect rating.
Regardless, thank you for developing such a functional app. I would pay twice as much just to synchronize it w/my own music streaming playlists, tho.
Never going back 5/5
By Meela D
This has changed the way I work out!!!
Good but needs improvement 3/5
I tried this app and the workouts were great. I was debating between this and another audio workout app. What made me eventually not pay to subscribe to this app was one, the playlist. I just can’t workout to the music of one band, especially if I can’t stand the band in the first place. Hearing back to back songs of Linkn Park or Eurithmics was too much. Also, I wanted to do the beginner running for a race program. The program involves using a treadmill in addition to outdoors. Unfortunately, I don’t have access to a treadmill.
I might try to find a better app 3/5
I’ve been a long time user of this app and had the idea before it even came on the market? It serves my purposes to continue my subscription, but it’s disappointing that they do not invest in their customer or innovation. They constantly rebrand instead of improving the choices and experiences within the app. There are tremendous advances, improvements, and partnerships to be made....
Hmm...Was good until... 5/5
I love the setup of this app but once I saw the image for the yoga workout, it made me cringe at how the woman’s body looked. Very unrealistic.
Awesome Interface 5/5
I have truly enjoyed having this app and trying out several different exercise types, music genres, and trainers. It has kept me moving and motivated. It pushes me when otherwise I might start to ease up on my own. I appreciate that the music that accompanies the workouts is specially selected and aids in helping to keep me grinding away. I would definitely recommend this app to friends and family.
So motivating! 5/5
I always feel like giving up but I they have this sense of knowing when I start getting sloppy with my form or when I want to give up and they are very kind and motivating! Love all the trainers so far but ackeem and Caesar was my favorites! LOVE BEING PART OF THE AAPTIV TEAM!
Fortunately I have No intentions of canceling my membership. 4/5
Fortunately, I have no intentions of canceling My membership. if I did, I would be in big trouble. There is absolutely no human contact customer service. But the workouts Make up for that. They are amazing!
My favorite fitness app ever 5/5
For so long my issue wasn’t getting to the gym, it was how to actually find workouts that didn’t make me feel bored, miserable, or like I wasn’t doing something the proper way. This feeling is ultimately deterred me from working out. But, aaptiv challenges me, helps me understand / keep my form, and most importantly is always an entertaining surprise because I never have to do the same workout twice. I reached my fitness goals that I had been trying to reach for months in about a month with aaptiv. If you work hard and really listen to the trainers, you will see a difference!
Love this app! 5/5
I cannot recommend Aaptiv enough! There are workouts for everyone; from gym workouts, to outdoor walk and runs, to programs for 5k’s, 10k’s, and even half and full marathons. There’s yoga, meditation, core workouts, stretches, cool downs, treadmill, etc. There’s also walk to run programs for people new to running, and a maternity program (from 1st trimester to post partum). The coaches are amazing and so motivating during workouts, they make it fun and I look forward to working out now! There’s also a FB page for members in which everyone is so nice and supportive, and the trainers love to hear from members and answer questions. It also syncs with my Apple Watch/ Health app so it keeps tracks of my workouts and progress. Would definitely recommend!!
Great motivation; filtering needs more options 4/5
Flat out 5-stars for the content and the app itself. Despite all the changes with the rebrand... My only qualm is the filtering and search capabilities is too limited. Let me search for tempo runs, or intervals without anything off the treadmill. (No burpees or something) ugggggh
Great way to get into running or other cardio activity. Or seasoned experts to do the same.
Need some focus on customer experience 2/5
Like most software companies, they need to work on communication when it comes to changes and updates. It’s a strong program with great features. It has nearly everything I could want for the price. But my whole experience has been flipped upside down a few times since I started using the app, both times without warning in the product or even a courtesy email blast. If you are looking for a predictable, consistent experience that you can rely on, this isn’t the app for you. If you don’t mind that workouts and trainers can disappear, layout can change, etc., than this app is for you. I wish I’d anticipated that a bit more going in. Don’t get too attached to a routine!
Great App...Limited Choices 4/5
This is a great app, like having a personal trainer right beside you. But they don’t include one of the most popular exercises for beginners- outdoor walking, which is weird because they have “treadmill”. Well I don’t belong to a gym and don’t have a treadmill at home, so I feel as if I have limited choices here. Sorry I modify the outdoor walking and treadmill routines. Love it but a real hassle.
Only audio 1/5
By Blue butterballs
There’s no video to show you how to do the workouts... it’s just music and it’s kind of weird... to me.
Deceptively renews subscriptions 1/5
I have taken the free trial and the subscription auto renews after 1 month. I didn’t like it and stopped using after a week. The app provide No option to cancel auto renewal.
Most annoying and killing is they charge $ 110 for yearly subscription(not monthly or quarterly), meaning once a user had fell in their deception empty his bank account immediately.
Yes, it is worth it 4/5
By Rosemary Z.
Update: still love the app and still worth it, but knocking off a star for the total bugginess of the Apple watch app. Srsly, the watch app is so buggy that I think they would be better off not having one at all. Do not think you can easily download workouts to your watch. You cannot. The download will quit and delete your process every few minutes. BEWARE! The phone app is as great as ever.
I am a runner (13.1 FTW!) and have probably tried 4537390283 fitness apps (rough estimate, work with me here) in an effort to keep training fresh. I mean, I like running (obviously) but eventually running an hour most days of the week gets.....oof.
I'm pretty motivated by people telling me YOU ARE DOING SO GREAT KEEP IT UP but I have a super low tolerance for cheesiness so when I saw this app, I was like 'this could be so great....or SO BAD.'
You can prolly tell from my five stars that this fell into 'SO GREAT' territory.
Things I like:
-A recorded voice telling me that I am doing SUCH A GOOD JOB. Yeah, I tell myself that, and I know it's just a recording, but I DON'T CARE I LOVE IT.
-Each workout has different music, the music is well-paired with the pace at the moment, and the cadence is just right for me. I do use Spotify playlists for that, but this is better. For instance, in a run with lots of pickups and intervals, the trainers are great at matching the moment you have to break into a sprint with the moment that the music surges, the chord progresses, etc.
-Lots of choices and plays well with other apps. I'm on a training schedule and I pick a Skyfit class that corresponds to how long my daily mileage is going to take me. It plays in the background perfectly while my running app speaks my mileage and pace cues over it no problem.
Mild beefs not enough to knock off a star:
-Not all of the trainers mention it when it's the turnaround point. This isn't a problem for me on training days because my running app tells me, but if I just want to jaunter out for some fun active recovery on an off day, it's sometimes really hard to know when to turn around.
-Not enough longer sessions. I have had the app a week and very soon I am going to have to start repeating classes because there are not very many in the 40-60 minutes and over range. Most classes are half an hour. My shortest training run is usually 4 miles (not counting runs just for fun) and I'm a slow runner so that's 40 minutes right there. Hmmph.
-no way to preview a class without having to listen, "end" the session, be forced to rate it, have it populate to my "taken classes" list.....annoying.
-can't download classes for offline listening. I am a country girl and I sometimes (often) lose cell service while out running.
-Yeah, it is a little cheesy. It's OK, not nearly as bad as I had thought it might be, and I have a particularly low tolerance for that sort of thing (~being your best self today~ and ~setting your intention~ -- that sort of thing) so you will probably not mind it. Given how much I like the app otherwise, I'll take it for what it is and roll my eyes if I have to. I mean, that's kind of the nature of fitness coaching.
I hope my epic novel was helpful to someone considering the app. Yes, it IS worth the $10/month, at least for me.
22 years old and can afford 10 personal trainers! 5/5
This is the best app for fitness motivation I have ever used. I was an athlete all through school, but it was my coaches that kept me in shape. I needed that same type of push; that’s what this app gives me. When I’m mid workout and about to crash these coaches have timed it perfectly to expect that drain and give words of encouragement that energize me back up! It’s amazing. I used to just listen to music and run and would be dead by .75 miles, now I’m able to go 3 miles without exhausting myself halfway through! Get this app - people WILL ask you who your trainer is. All you gotta say is, which one?
I didn’t buy this app I think my nephew did because it doesn’t have n email or anything so it was brought buy my iCloud and I’m already sign in like that with my iCloud he probably thought it was a game so please refund me
This app made treadmill running enjoyable. 5/5
By 5000 Watts
Makes me excited to workout 5/5
I was in a major workout slump and aaptiv has saved me. Great always changing workouts with motivational coaches!
By Alisha in the PNW
I wanted to do a 30 day trial. While trying to set it up, the app made me agree to sign up for monthly subscription renewal. I was assuming this meant that after the 30 day trial THEN it would start charging me, but instead it immediately began charging for a monthly rate. I reported this and did not get a refund. Disappointed and that’s enough for me to not want to support the app.
Awesome Workouts 5/5
By Appme Fan
I have been looking for a good app to use with the treadmill and other gym equipment. Afternoon trying the rest I found Aaptiv. While it’s not cheap it does prove that sometimes you get what you pay for. The treadmill workouts keep you motivated throughout your workout. Not only that, the variety of other training routines mean that I can also try out the bikes and other machines, even weights. Lots to learn.
Signed up for a free trial, was immediately charged 14.99. I didn’t even have it for a week. What a scam, do not download this app.
Does not download to Apple Watch 1/5
The app doesn’t work on the Apple Watch. I tried all the workarounds recommended on every review and message board (newest version, delete and reinstall, WiFi connection, etc.), but it still won’t download more than 20% of any workout without crashing. I only got it for my Apple Watch, so I’m obviously pretty disappointed by the crazy price tag attached to this app. Nearly $100 down the drain.
Still needs a few things 4/5
The main thing this app is lacking is the ability to search for keywords when trying to select a workout. You can limit your search in all other relevant ways, but I’d like to be able to search by keywords like “shoulders,” “sprints,” etc.
ALL A SCAM DO NOT USE THIS APP 1/5
By overl annoyed customer
If I could give negative stars I would. This app is horrible. Not only do they make it insanely difficult to cancel, but once you do cancel they will charge you anyway! I used it for about 10 minutes for realizing this app was not for me, canceled my subscription, emailed their support team to confirm my cancellation only to be charged 100$ a month later, and see my subscription was mysteriously re activated.
Great app except one flaw 4/5
The app is great and I love that it has such variety . Love the pace the trainers use . Music is great too. I really wish that they had a short video clip before each strength training workout to demo each move. For a lot of people who are just getting into exercise this can make all the difference. Right now, lack of this feature makes people like me more vulnerable to injury which defeats the purpose of paying for the app . Also, it will be good if they added a short description of the workout like what it includes before starting. It’s a great app and adding these features will make it unparalleled. Developers please consider this request as it’s very important to prevent injury by understanding the correct move. Thanks and keep up the good work!
Second time using this app 4/5
By Back to Healthy & Strong
What a great app! It has helped me reconnect with my excitement of working out every day and feeling stronger. Not a fan of the music set with the program and I’m guessing it has to do with cadence and time in the work out, but if there’s a way to incorporated my own playlist would be great? Also, on the The weightlifting and other types of calisthenics,yoga, etc..do you have a list of the workouts Picture demonstrations that I can look at and review to be prepared when I start this type of workout?
Back to healthy & strong
Want descriptions 4/5
I would love it if the workouts descriptions contained a short list of what the workout is. Otherwise, the app is great.
By Addix Jo
Unable to use the app unless you pay hundreds of dollars
Very angry with this company 1/5
I did the trial and when the end came I was unable to change my membership and was charged $100. Terrible service!!!
No video or picture instruction 1/5
All music and someone telling you what to do. That’s great if you understand the fitness jargon but if not then you may be doing the exercises or positions incorrectly which can cause injury or no benefits. Not for me. Tried to get a prorated refund and was told that’s not an option but will cancel for next year so I don’t get charged again. Real nice! Used it 3 days and found out that without visual instruction that it’s useless to me. Charge me a month and refund the remainder. Unsatisfactory Custer service! I would not recommend!
The perfect fitness app 5/5
This is the only subscription I’m genuinely happy I forgot to cancel. I never used it during the one month trial, but since I was automatically signed up for a year, I decided to give it a try. I’m hooked now! This app has so many programs and workouts to offer. You’ll never get bored with workouts again. Shoutout to Ceasar 🙌🏻, he’s my favorite trainer. Give it a try, you won’t regret it.
Great product, terrible customer service 3/5
I love this app, but it’s payment set up is super sketchy. Nowhere on the app can you see your payment plan, and you can’t cancel your plan from the app. Every time I’ve cancelled (twice over a 2-3 year time period) it requires multiple emails - no phone option - back and forth with their customer service people. It’s like they’re intentionally making it difficult to cancel.
Awesome but.... 4/5
I love the treadmill workouts. I haven’t really used the other workouts just the treadmill ones. They are amazing but I wish I could chose the music. Some of the music is not something I would listen too which hinders my running but overall it’s a great app. A little expensive though. Wish they would lowers the price too!
I don’t like this app at all. No videos? Just talking? And waaaayyyyy too much talking at that. I’m so disappointed in this app. Like the other one I’ve been using much better because it actually has video to go along with the coaching.
Outstanding Coaching and Support! 5/5
Ever walk in the gym unprepared? Training for a race and get to Mile 7 and run out of gas? Want to train for a bucket list fitness event? With this app, you will never be unprepared or without a partner.
The coaching and support are incredible and new workouts are added weekly and always motivating! Outdoor/Indoor running, Indoor cycling, elliptical, strength training, meditation and yoga! Add in training programs for almost every type of activity and you can’t go wrong for the price! Don’t have a gym? No problem...there are tons of classes that ton need a gym. You’ll also find a supportive and motivating Facebook page with members throwing their confetti all over so everyone can cheer them on!
Take the plunge...you won’t be sorry!
