Starts at the head and goes through each part of body. Totally works. Soothing, relaxing.
Fell in love 5/5
I have tried so many fitness apps and this is by far my favorite. It really helps me stay motivated throughout the workout, and makes me look forward to working out!
One suggestion that I was hoping for was possibly tailoring programs by the machine one possibly uses. For example, for someone that may use a treadmill or elliptical to mainly workout for weight loss, can a program be made that delicates what treadmill/elliptical workout they should do for that day. Something that would be kind of similar to the walk to 5k but with the machines.
I am glad I found This App 4/5
I love the app, like everyone else is saying is a great app for workouts. The only reason I am not giving 5 stars is because I am a gym, exercise, workout beginner and most of the things mentions I don't know how to do. I recommend pictures or videos of the workouts to make sure we are doing it correctly and don't get hurt. I have to stop the work out google what i suppose to be doing and then continue. PICTURES or VIDEOS will hell a great deal for some of us beginners. Other than that this app is awesome !! THANK YOU FOR THE MOTIVATION AND SUPPORT!!
Just voice, no videos. 1/5
By Shelena yarukhina
Not helpful, I can’t follow the voice, I need to see the exercise. How else I would know if i do it correctly. So promising app and such a disappointment
Paying for something I can’t use 1/5
I have not been able to use the app. Every time I go to the gym, the app just loads and loads.
By yet another unhappy costumer
Signed up thinking I was receiving a trial, come to find out you pay for the entire year. Trying to get a refund. Sounds like a lot of people are having the same issue, but what I find to be interesting is they don’t show those reviews before buying the app!
Good audio programs but with no visual support 3/5
Pros: Very good motivational AUDIO programs only which includes music without the extra cost of a music subscription.
Cons: No video/visual. The app assumes that you know how to execute the movements and provides no visual support like a video of a trainer executing the movements which is a huge miss. Who wants to have to google a bunch of exercises when you’re in the middle of a workout. I think I got wrong about half of the movements in the strength training programs making a lot of guesses. People can hurt themselves if they don’t have proper forms.
No calories counting functionality which could make the app a one stop shop.
Artist and song title add? 5/5
App is great. Only thing I would add would be for the app to display artists and song title playing during the workout.
I downloaded this and of course 7 days free and then 14.99 a month or 99$ for a year. Probs not
I really like all the instructors I have “met” so far. They are engaging and motivating. I also appreciate the meditation as I just went through some difficult changes.
Usually a casual runner, but I really find this app motivating 5/5
So if you’re on the fence about buying the year subscription, DO IT. I wish I could insert the Shia LaBeouf DO IT gif until you get it. I’m usually struggling to get out of the house and regretting my life because I have time to run, I just never have the motivation. The coaches on aaptiv are amazing. They give me just the right amount to push myself and now I feel better than ever training for my half in the next month and my farther runs. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who feels like they need that push and I really always want to come back for more because the music is always different...I was getting real tired of my own running music and this app is great. DO ITTTTT
“Strength” training is weak 3/5
I got this app hoping learn more about strength training and lifting. I had done a lot of body weight HIIT training prior to downloading the app. I was interested due to it advertising “strength training” as one of the categories of workouts. But, it turns out Aaptiv version of “strength training” is still HIIT with body weight or occasional dumbbells. What I was looking for is something telling me to do more weight lifting, for example barbell squats, deadlifts, lat pull downs, etc.
Good app, but for me didn’t bring anything new to the table. Some coaches are really awesome- I do love Ackeem’s energy and approach!
No visuals!! 1/5
Be careful! They will charge your account a $99 yearly fee. The trial period says 7 days but if you read carefully they say they require 48 hours before the 7 days to cancel.The app is only audio. What a bummer. Go with the Peleton App great visuals and audio as well!
Great idea but they need to add videos! 2/5
Love the energy of the trainers but the app would be better if they offers the option to watch a video of the workouts. This app is only for audio, and in some workouts they go so fast that is hard to keep up and understand what is the next movement. I wish someone said that this app was audio only. And for being audio only is too pricey.
This is a scam 1/5
As soon as I realized this was a paid app, I emailed the company to cancel my subscription. Not only did they not respond to my email but they charged me 100$. I emailed them again for a refund and they have not emailed me back. DO NOT BUY THIS APP
Very good workouts, not enough filters 3/5
By JP in NYC
The running, stretching, and strength training workouts I’ve done have been very good. However, the app needs more filters. You can’t focus your search on particular types of workouts. I’d like to be able to find a workout for, say, a 30-40 minute lower body strength training with weights without having to scroll through 60+ search results, most of which don’t meet my criteria.
It’s only free for 7 days and then you have to pay for the app. You can’t even look at the app until you sign up.
Free trial scam 1/5
By stl stager
This app requires you to agree to their terms and is linked to your credit card through the App Store. The trial states “free 7 day trial” however, you must cancel 48 hours before the trial ends. This company charged me $99 and won’t refund my scam purchase. I do NOT RECOMMEND THIS SCAM.
Great for strength training 5/5
By Sophie T. A.
This app really challenges me and gets me to push myself during strength training sessions!
Good ideas 3/5
App has good ideas and would really work great except it doesn’t show you how to do the exercise, it only talks to you. For a beginner trying to do yoga or some of the other workouts, this is pointless.
Maternity workouts?! 3/5
I signed up for this because it said maternity workouts. Where is the section for this?!
Charged me $99.99 1/5
I inquired about the 1 month trial since I that was what they were promoting. The app signed me up for the 7-day one even though that’s not what I wanted. I never received a response. I quit and deleted the app. Wasn’t a fan of the “audio-only” content anyways, but though I’d give it a try. Received a charge for $99.99.
Motivating & easier than videos 5/5
I was optimistic to hear about and try Aaptiv, as I find it so challenging to try and watch videos while I work out. Since I’m not totally new to exercise, I’m already familiar with the moves. I just need someone to push me harder. :) The music is fun and each of the trainers has so much enthusiasm and encouragement. It’s really been an asset in that regard. Plus, there are a zillion workouts with filters, so it’s easy to find exactly what you’re looking for. And believe me, even the beginner workouts will get your heart pumping! I signed up for a full year and am loving it.
Free isn’t free 1/5
It’s “free” until you want to start a workout then they try and charge you. This is stupid
It has potential 3/5
Great workout however, there is no video showing the workouts. I know this is an audio only workout but Nothing kills a workout more than having to stop to look up proper form. The black countdown window is a huge waste of real estate. You could of easily uses this space to show video or looping gif of someone doing the exercise. Or at least show a review of the exercises at the main menu. Maybe it takes you to a YouTube link. Something...
THIS IS NOT A RISK FREE TRIAL 1/5
This is not a risk free trial. I tried the app and did not like it so I went on the app to my profile to cancel it and it said that I did not have a profile so I assumed it was cancelled.
But then I was charged $100! Their website says they will not do any refunds! So make sure that you 100% are cancelled.
I called and have emailed them twice. I will update this review if I have a positive customer service experience.
Top of the line! 5/5
BEST workout app ever! I travel a lot for work, always on the go and I can take Aaptiv with me everywhere. I always workout now b/c I can no longer use the excuse “uh, I don’t know which routine to do”. This app has EVERYTHING from stairs, eliptical, stretches, outdoor running, strength training, meditation... you guys, MEDITATION!!! This app is totally worth it!
Don’t join 1/5
This is not free. You have to pay for every video.
Great elliptical sessions 5/5
I use the app mainly for the elliptical programs. The trainers are energetic and motivational. The music is great. I love the variety and it pushes me to work harder than I would just watching TV while working out.
Would be great if it worked 1/5
But it hasn’t. I signed up for Aaptiv recently and loved my first workout. Two days later, I logged in again to play another workout, but couldn’t play anything. Every time I tried, I’d be prompted to sign up.
Deleted the app, no dice. Logged in and out, no dice. Wrote a ticket 5 days ago with no response. Can’t use the subscription I’m paying for...
Lack of visual aids 3/5
No videos....seems like a big miss.
The best fitness app by far! 5/5
This app is amazing. It pushes me hard every workout and keeps me motivated. The music is awesome and the trainers are inspiring. You’ll get addicted to working out with these trainers and before you know it, you’ll crave the gym.
I also love the flexibility of this app. I used it train for a half marathon. I’ve used it to push my strength training workout in the gym and at home. I’ve even used it to mediate and get my mind in the right place before my day starts. This app really does it all and keeps me coming back for more.
Super shady 1/5
Signed up for the 7 day free trial but to cancel your membership you must email a support address and do so 48 hours prior to the subscription being over. Be warned.
Feel more comfortable in the gym 4/5
By Lady Swag
I love this app, I feel A LOT more comfortable in the gym. Not lost anymore on what I need to do, just listen to one of the trainers and I know what to do. The only complaint I have is PLEASE make the app for the Apple Watch work without having to download the workout! I have a watch with cellular data, I should be able to stream the workout, not wait for quite some time for it to download... and take memory up on my watch!!
I was charged after I unsubscribed for $110 . Their support system phone is off and you can not reach them. They do not email back like they say they will the workouts aren’t that great and there are free apps in the App Store that are better .DO NOT buy this app or subscribe. 0stars I have to put one or it won’t let me comment.
Charged me even though cancelled during trial 1/5
This app might be good if you’re an audial learner. I’m a visual learner and need to see the exercises to fully understand. If you’re new to working out you aren’t going to know what all exercises are called. Seeing them demonstrated is key.
Plus even after I cancelled the free trial a few days in I was still charged a week later. Not happy about this receptiveness. I tried the app during the trial and didn’t like it. Now they’ve charged me $15 and I have to dispute with my bank.
Love this app! 4/5
I wake up every morning and do a quick yoga routine to start my day. The trainers keep me very motivated. Two things would make this app 5 star for me. One, it would be nice if I could put workouts into a queue and have it run through. I do a few yoga sequences in the morning and it would be great if they could just play through. Second, like other reviewers said, sometimes I have no idea what I’m doing because the trainer goes through the motions so quick. This is especially true for some of the “beginner” workouts. I’m worried that I will get hurt. A picture of the movement would be good.
Otherwise, I LOVE this app! Totally worth the money.
Not video 1/5
By Jay ring 123
I would like to cancel my subscription. I do not like that there are no videos.
Completely changed my attitude towards cardio 5/5
I’m in relatively good shape and do cardio only because I have to. With this app, I have looked forward to running on the treadmill or on the pavement. Highly recommend for anyone on any level of fitness. They have so many workouts that are tailored for beginners, intermediate, and advanced levels. These workouts also include very good music; so no stressing over your workout playlists. Totally worth the monthly subscription.
Avid runner and gym user and was getting bored. I didn’t like being tied to specific class times if I wanted to do yoga or a boot camp class since I work from home and have meetings throughout the day. This app is perfect to squeeze in a workout whenever I need to. I got the 50% off new year deal too so it only comes to $4 a month! Even at full price, highly recommend.
By stickin with it
This application has been really helpful and structuring and effective workout each morning. I feel like I can work for 20 to 30 minutes and leave with a really good sweat and feeling like I worked out my entire body. I really appreciate how there are a number of different levels as I am a beginner and it doesn’t make it feel daunting at all. I also really appreciate how you can save workouts that you enjoy.
Please give me my money back!!!! 1/5
I thought it said $9.99 not $99.99 please! I’m on furlough and wanted to use my time to get in shape but I can’t afford $100. I made a mistake. Help me please! Please I can’t reverse it in ApplePay. I’ll pay for 1month at $10
Idk if the app is good or not, bc you literally can’t try anything unless you spend at least $20.
A good training app for both beginners and experts. 5/5
Hands down THE. BEST. 5/5
I have tried so many training apps and this is by far the most versatile and the best quality workout app you can find. Workouts are well thought out and challenging. Well worth the money.
Needs to be much better 1/5
It’s basically personal trainers telling you what you should do. It’s just audio and no visuals. I suggest spending your money somewhere else.
Steals your money 1/5
while the app says there is a free trial, they bill you immediately and won’t refund
Not Free 1/5
False advertising this is not free.
APP OF THE DAY OR SCAM OF THE DAY 1/5
Don’t trust them when they say money back.
