Not free, 14 day trial is a joke 1/5
So I work out at a gym and saw this app and wanted to try it out, 1) no where dose it say anything about 14.00 or anything when your reading about the app before downloading it, 2) after you download it before you can do anything it wants you to start paying! If I’m going to pay to work out I’ll just keep going to the gym.
Great. Would be excellent with a few tweaks. 4/5
While I enjoy the app, I wish that there was a way to sort workouts that have been saved or favorited. As it is now, you have to scroll through all of the workouts that you have saved, but not yet tried.
Double Charged - Refused to Refund 1/5
Not only do I think the app isn’t that great, most complaints relate to cheesy music and poor instruction. They refused to refund a double charge of an annual fee and simply pointed to Apple as the reason why they couldn’t refund my money.
So the app isn’t very good and they don’t care about their customers. If they wanted to make it right, they could have.
Surprise 100 charge!!! 1/5
By low key coyote
If you try this app BEWARE. They will renew you after your free month immediately without warning and steal $99.99 from your bank account. They did not even email me a receipt showing they had charged me. This company is dishonest so watch your bank account!!!
Why did “try” lead me to a $15 purchase? 2/5
Not sure if I’m just completely oblivious, but while signing up under the guise of “trying” the app I was led to agree to a purchase, NOT a trial. I’d really like to give this app a go but don’t want to commit to a subscription if I’m not going to use it - would really appreciate getting my money back.
Animation would be cool 1/5
The idea of the App is good but I have complaints,
1. It feels like you have to rely of imagination more often than not. Is it too hard to just give you an animation of the exercise trainer is explaining, I don’t know.
2. Not worth the money, the app lacks in some good complete workout programs. Or the idea of customizing your own program based on your goal would have been good.
I wold say great first start but, app needs a lot of improvement. I would wait before I commit to spend monthly amount of mediocre content.
This app was suggested by Apple. I blindly downloaded it. The fees were not displayed. It appeared free. I downloaded it 7 days later I was charged $107.99. I have never even open the app. I requested a refund and was told it can take up 30 days to receive.
Where are all your new strength classes? 4/5
I love Aaptiv, especially for the loads of new content shared so frequently. I swear you guys used to add to your strength library more often than you do now (either that or your “newest” sort option isn’t working). Hopefully you will continue to expand that!
Not a gym person....this is perfect 5/5
Aaptiv is just what I need to try to keep some momentum in my quest for health. Working out has never been a strong suit for me. Aaptiv’s coaches are the perfect motivator and there is such a wide variety of exercise options - kinds of workouts, amount of time, and level.
By Talia Thiesfield
This is such a scam. If you use the 30 day trial they will charge you for the YEARLY subscription after the trial which is $100. Then they will claim you had to cancel your 30 trial TWO DAYS before it’s over in order to not be charged. There’s no way to delete your payment info, so not only have I not been able to get in contact with anyone to cancel my account, but they also just have my credit card info and can keep my account open and keep charging me.
Customer Service is Great! 5/5
To make this short - I was having an issue with my account and I noticed at about 9:45pm.. sent an email to the help desk and it’s now 10:08pm and my problem is solved. Zamir helped me and was so very polite and quick to reply. I’m not sure I’ve had such timely assistance with any app issues for other apps. Thank you so much Zamir and Aaptiv! Definitely will be getting a thumbs up and recommendation from me. 🙂
No time is no longer a concern! 5/5
Work weeks have been tough on getting workouts in. And, being a weekend warrior was not helping me to maintain my fitness or, prepare for races. I am ever grateful for finding this app that has quick and very efficient workouts available when time is not.
Great app! 5/5
When can we get video support for workouts? The audio workout sessions are great but sometimes seeing the workout helps too. Any plans to put that into the app?
Trying to cancel 1/5
Trying in vain to cancel my free trial and not be charged, haven’t even used, very user unfriendly, it like they trick you into trying and make it impossible to cancel so you become a member. I have emailed support twice and heard nothing, can’t get a person... no number listed etc...
Needs video tutorials but... 4/5
I love this app, it’s great for running! I wish that it included video for the yoga and some of the stretching tutorials.
Waste time of time 1/5
By Stephen Caperton
For $15 dollars a month you get access to a mediocre workout soundtrack that would be free on pandora or Spotify and audio coaching during a workout. Audio coaching is useless. How are you supposed to know if you are doing the workout correctly without being able to see the instructor. I tried the yoga class for five minutes and had to laugh. Save yourself the money.
Let me use the actual app 1/5
By Erick Mauro
How awful when you actually work out quite often and want to use this app as a supplemental option but can not until you workout with the starter programs only...so I can’t row on my home rower with your paid app until after I have done an 8 min tread run, tried to just let app work so I could get to rower programs, no go!...what a waste of money and time don’t waste your time on app until they let you use all the programs to start....a simple what level of fitness questionnaire where you can explain you already workout daily and don’t need the starter boring workouts would suffice!
Great encouragement! 5/5
I love working out with the trainers. They are very encouraging and you feel like they are right there. Great community.
Not an app without subscription 1/5
By Not supported
This isnt an app. Its a login screen and you cant access anything without signing up
Great app, but... 4/5
By Dayvie Bone
I would give Aaptiv 5 stars, however I feel they can do a better job with the workout descriptions and maybe include pictures or demos of the movements. The workouts are great, but at the gym I’d like to know exactly what equipment/space I need and what I will be doing so I don’t look like an idiot running around looking for weights or kettlebells in the middle of the workout. Also, I find myself having to Google some exercises during workouts because I don’t know what they are or how to perform them. Otherwise, it’s a great app!
Just cause it’s not free. Stop charging people for every app
False advertisement 1/5
Don’t make me download an app and waste my time if you can’t even do a workout without paying first. Just charge the person up front to download. I’ll be using a different workout app thanks.
This app with charge you $99 and not allow you to actually access any of the content.
Love it, but can use some updates 4/5
Love the fact that I have someone in my motivating me to push myself harder. I’m a newbie at the gym and some of the workouts are hard for me without googling what they are. The only thing I wish this app had was pictures or examples of the type of workouts you’ll be doing. Other than that this app is really good
“Free” 7 day trial is pointless 1/5
It says you can try it free for 7 days, but you cannot. All you can do is download the app and look at it. However, if you actually try to do any of the workout it asks you to pay. What’s the point of that? I have been looking for an app like this and was excited to try it out before purchasing it. But I guess that’s not happening....
By hshskak s
I like the music and the trainers but I need to be able to see them doing the workout. Once I mess up and don’t understand a move I quit and go to the gym. I probably won’t pay again or recommend the app to any beginners.
Used to like this app 1/5
The app has been a favorite for over two years, until recently. Now, the app only works when it is opened. Each time my phone goes to “sleep” or I receive a message while using the app, recording stops. This is a new problem and I hope it’s fixed soon.
Great trainer, needs better music options 4/5
I hope we can play our own music. Music is a big part of an energetic workout and it’s personal. The app would be much better if we can play our own music.
They tell you $14.99 a month and then Charge you the entire year! No where does it say in their terms and conditions it will do that, It just vaguely talks about your subscription Fees not annual fee! They didn’t even send a notification to let you know what will be taken out of your account which I am pretty sure is illegal given there is nothing in their upfront terms. Hope they respond to my email in a promptly.
No price available until after you sign up! 1/5
Unethical the way they have set this up!
So disappointed 2/5
I wish I could get my money back. I thought I was going to see videos so I could understand the moves. Nope. Just a timer. Such a waste of money for me! I have no idea if I’m doing the move correctly or not. I will not be resubscribing.
Adaptive helped me become comfortable at the gym! 5/5
I was skeptical at first with no visuals but it has been amazing!! The trainers really do explain the moves so well. I could count on one hand how many times I was confused about a move (and I’m not an expert in working out).
I now feel comfortable on the machines and using them to their full potential and even doing strength workouts with weights. I highly recommend to any beginners and experts!
Charged after trial 1/5
I cancelled before the free trial was over. I was charged 107.49 a year later. Aaptiv support told me to talk to Apple. Very deceitful
DONT PAY 1/5
By Worsttt gamee
Useless Application ripping you off for nothing
Decreased quality 1/5
Used to be great but now they aren’t making as many new workouts and the music has gone downhill. Old bad pop music.
Fitbit sync 3/5
Would love it if my Fitbit would sync. I just walked 3.5 miles but didn’t get on the app first to get credit for the work. Ugh!!
Not great for beginners 2/5
The classes and instructors seem good and the music is great, but I can’t get over the fact that there are literally no instructions anywhere for any of the exercises. If you aren’t a strength training guru, look elsewhere. I downloaded this app so I could start doing more strength training exercises at my gym. I’ve tried a few classes but since there aren’t videos, I don’t always know if I’m doing an exercise correctly. If they provided you with a list of exercises that would be done during a class, i would look them up before to prepare. But I’m not going to waste my time listening to a class, then going back and looking up anything I don’t know how to do, then actually completing the class. I’m moving on to an app with videos or at least an app with a better overview of the classes you’re taking.
It’s ok 3/5
There are no visuals to ensure you are doing correct movements. I can’t see what my workout is going to be to better prepare for the session. It is all auditory. The music is motivating and the exercises are good. But, overall, not too excited for the app. Also, I thought I was getting a 1 week free trial and I was not. I was immediately charged.
Don’t waste your time 1/5
This app is for people who have never set foot in a gym. Even if you are a beginner the advanced workouts are extremely basic.
If you have any desire to be slightly challenged, don’t waste your time with this app.
$99.99 are you out of your mind!!! 2/5
Please make sure to read the fine print before using a guest pass. I was charged $99.99 yesterday and I had to go fight tooth and nail for the refund this morning. I was promised within 5 business days. Hopefully i do not to call back.
The app was just not for me but I know other people love it.
Was my favorite app. 2/5
I loved this app. I used to believe I wasn’t “built for running and so when I ran, I ran begrudgingly and often found myself in a lot of physical pain. I downloaded this app as a way to save money, as I was previously a boutique fitness only kinda person. Not only did this app work to replace the need for expensive boutique classes, it taught me how to run properly.
Unfortunately the main “it” factor was the face of Aaptiv, coach Meg Tackas. The other coaches were great for different types of workouts, but for running, Meg was the only coach I trusted to give me a good, clear cut, technical focused running workout, which is what I wanted and utilized the most.
They recently dropped Meg from their team, which seems insane as a business move. As a consumer I no longer was getting the product I signed up for. And as a person who works in another industry that can unfortunately treat its workers as a dime a dozen, I now view Aaptiv as a company that doesn’t value its workers. Meg was not just a founder but the best coach on there and loved by many in the Aaptiv community, and they let her go.
Now I’ll patiently wait until Meg finds or creates a new venue to release her work. Bye, Aaptiv!
Was a 5, Now a 3 without Meg Takacs 3/5
Should have never let her go
So disappointed... 1/5
Loved this app and used it weekly until.... YOU LET MEG TAKACS GO?!?!?! I’m out. Hope she takes Sultan with her. ✌️
I never write reviews but felt just so disappointed from this app. Before this app, I already worked-out 5-6 days a week. Mostly functional fitness mixed with outdoor runs and cycling. But I was craving something different, so I decided to try 1 month of this app to give me some new workout inspiration.
First of all, I paid $14.99/mo for this app when I feel it should be one of those apps you pay $5 once for.
I have used the app for weightlifting, outdoor runs, and cycling and I’m done with it and cancelled my membership.
I don’t like:
-first turn off was that I had to complete a “starter” workout before it would unlock the rest. This irked me the most. I paid $15, just to have more roadblocks in front of me. Unfortunately this did not give me a good first impression at all
-the price (I would maybe pay $15 ONCE for it, definitely not monthly)
-the music (almost all “pop”). I don’t recognize most of the songs.
-the instructors are either not helpful, not motivating to me, or talk too much
-the music DOES NOT match up with what you are doing. Ex: a slow song in the middle of your sprint, songs that end while you are climbing that hill on the bike. If you have taken a fitness class, you know the instructors usually tailor the class/workout to the songs.
-poor instruction on certain movements, particularly weightlifting. I feel like I am competent in many lifts/moves, but they made up or described moves that left me so confused.
-the app is clunky and I struggle to find what I am looking for, which kills my motivation.
-can’t see a breakdown of what the class is going to entail. I want to know what kind of equipment is involved, how many sets, how long they are, and the moves within them. The app just gives a generic description instead. Not helpful at all. This is probably one of my bigger gripes as I want to know exactly what is going to take place and what equipment I need.
-when running, they don’t give targeted paces but rather say: jog/sprint/walk.
I will say, if you do not workout much, this app may be perfect for you. It could motivate you and give you some ideas for workouts. But, sadly I will be sticking to what I know and saving my money.
Free Download, Free 7 day trial, very expensive 3/5
Probably a great app but it was something like $70 a year and that’s a sale. Yikes. Not willing to pay that much
Not what I expected 1/5
First of all, be aware this is audio only. There are no visual cues to guide you as to how to do the exercises. Also, even after paying I had to do a “starter” workout to “unlock” all the ones I paid for. This consisted of me letting the shortest I could find just run while I was doing other things. The workouts actually sound good so it’s disappointing there’s nothing to watch. This probably isn’t an issue for the treadmill ones but for workouts that require exact for I think it’s an issue. For the cost I expect some visual guidance.
DO NOT DOWNLOAD THE APP 1/5
I had downloaded the app and did the 7 day free trial and canceled it before the 7 days and still got charged 108.00 please don’t download this app
Overall, this is a great app. It would be even better if there was a list of moves and exercises listed in the description of the workouts so you know what to prepare for ahead of time. It would be even better to get photos or links to videos on how to complete a particular move. I’ve had to stop the workout on multiple occasions to research a move. I really want Aaptiv to get better because I love this app overall.
Don’t get it ! 1/5
Worst work out app I have ever tried . It was advertised with list of visuals , but after you purchase all you get is trainers talking to you . Not worth the money .
