Miss Ray Wallace!!! 4/5
He was the reason I signed up for aaptiv and I listened to him 99% if the time! So sad he is not in here and not sure if I will renew. He is one of a kind!
Workouts Missing 4/5
I noticed that my favorite elliptical workouts are missing and the trainer is no longer listed. Why aren’t the workouts still available? Those were my all time favorite. 🤷🏾♀️
THE WORST! Rip off! 1/5
The worst app ever bought!
They give you a tryout period, like always, you like a trainer more than others, you purchase the app and then suddenly they remove trainers. After several emails to customer service, no response.
But before paying the app, I did get responses for all my question!
Biggest rip off! DONT RECOMMEND!
Great motivator! 5/5
By Mom w/strings
I usually run alone and therefore miss the comradery and gentle competition of a group. This app helps keep me focused and keeps me pushing! The coaches are energetic and the tunes are great!
I ran a marathon last year, I used to really like running. I wasn’t a daily runner or anything, like maybe a few times a week I’d do some short runs after I lifted. Well..then I gained 15ish pounds this year and I haven’t ran in months. I ran last week and just one mile had me dying. So I finally decided to use the app and I did a beginner steady pace outdoor run for 23min with “John” and IT WAS DOPE. Like the music was PERFECT for this run and I did THE ENTIRE THING. It was 2.2 miles for me but I wasn’t dying like I was with one mile with just my music. I’m definitely going to keep using this to get back into running.
Got charged $100 without warning. Beware! 1/5
Free subscription ended without any warning and they just billed me using my Apple account. Definitely not worth $100. Buyer beware!
Perfect if it wasn’t as expensive. 4/5
By Shawn Robins
May not be able to continue because of the cost but very effective.
Great app, charge full price before trial ends, bad cancellation policy 1/5
I tried this app (and liked it). Imagine my surprise when they tried to charge me 8 days before my trial ended (my account blocked it) and have tried to charge multiple times since. Since I signed up under a promotion, my only option to cancel is to send an email which I have done twice without response.... or actual cancellation as they keep trying to change my account. They do NOT offer refunds! Buyer beware!!! They will take your money whether your trial period is over or not!
I’m in love 5/5
So first off, I’m the person that balks at dropping $1.99 on an app, so I put a LOT of thought into spending the money for this. I took advantage of the free month trial and decided that I wanted to continue. I really love using this. I am not huge in classes, and most definitely can not afford a trainer. I love going to the gym as opposed to working out at home, so being able to just put on headphones and listen to someone talk you through everything is so great. I love the variety of exercises, levels (beginner, intermediate, and advanced) and the different amounts of time for each one. It’s highly customizable to fit your schedule and life. It pushes me much better than I can push myself. And it keeps you going. When I would do things on my own, I’d take longer pauses, take time to determine what to do next, or have to look up a plan. Here, it’s all audio, so you just do what they tell you. There’s even a fairly broad range of music. I’ve only been using it for about a month following the trial period, but I’m very glad I made the investment.
I love this app it is a good combination of different workouts.Though sometimes I feel like I’m still getting it wrong so it would be nice if there was a picture showing
So impressed! 5/5
By superrr K
Wow.. I never write app reviews but I feel compelled to write a review here. This app is such a game changer for my workout routine. I am a boutique fitness class lover, but got tired of paying $30+ per class or $200+ a month for unlimited memberships.
I was skeptical of this app in its ability to create a similar high end feel, while providing a solid workout. I couldn’t have been more wrong. Not only are the teachers engaging and they actually use real music that I like instead of horrible nondescript edm like many fitness videos, but I actually get a tough workout in. You won’t have to worry about getting bored either.. there are so many videos to try. Can’t wait to keep us by Aaptiv, and I’m looking forward to my next class!
Recent MAJOR Glitch 3/5
Noticed a few things recently...one big issue as previous reviewer stated, stops playing maybe 20% into the workout and starts back at the beginning of the audio track. Need to manually pull the slider to what may have been where it stopped. Obviously distracting and NOT SAFE to do while on gym equipment.
Reached out to them regarding LACK of Apple Watch app functioning. Support responded stating it’s a known problem and they’re working on it. As of now...they’re still working on it...
Mr. Ray - trainer - no longer with Aaptiv. Understandable people move on, however, what about keeping his workouts available?
This app is bitter sweet. I really love it when it works, but the recent issues makes me question keeping this app.
Mr. Ray 1/5
Bring back Mr. Ray!! His workouts are by far the best!
The workouts that work are great. Unfortunately, so many of them glitch and don’t finish the recording halfway through and instead circle back to he beginning of the recording
SCAM!!! Run for the hills 1/5
Watch out for these crooks!!
Super expensive app that you can't cancel through the App Store. Bought this in January deleted all data in February. Kept getting charged through May. Had to email them to cancel and got an automated response saying you can't cancel this way. And then they wouldn't backdate the cancellation to February. I hate this app!!!
GET THIS!! 5/5
The trainers are absolutely amazing and motivating
When I signed up I thought I was signing up for $14.99/mo so I could cancel when I didn’t want it anymore. I was charged $99.99 and now I have no recourse. Be careful when downloading an app such as this. I’ve deleted the app off my phone so I don’t even see it anymore, it would make me angry every time I saw it...
The best 5/5
By Meela D
Changing the workout game!
Never the same trainers 1/5
My favorite trainer isn’t on the app anymore? It would be nice if his stuff at least got archived. Also my favorite classes disappear! I’ll go to search for a class I did a few days ago and I can’t find it. 👎👎
Loving It! 5/5
I absolutely love this app! So easy & great to use on the road! Awesome instructors & music!
Download this app you’ll thank me! 5/5
I run a lot and sometimes it gets boring this app will spice up your runs, keep you entertained, and push you harder. I also had a little bit of trouble with the app (user error) when I reached out to the company they were so sweet and easy to get ahold of. Great company, great app!
Love app....just one issue 4/5
I love app but wish it showed videos of the positions or pictures. Something to make sure doing right
Crashes & downloaded workouts not available 2/5
My gym has zero reception so when I download workouts, it’s because I really will have no access to cellular data. It turns out if you choose to download a workout, you have to keep that workout’s screen open to confirm its been downloaded. I’ve selected several to download, and the. assumed they would be there when I went to workout and weren’t. The download slider was in the off position for those that I had selected to have downloaded. Please fix this. Also the app crashes frequently when you start or stop a workout and you have to hard exit and re-open.
Video needed! 1/5
Aaptiv assumes that everyone is a auditory learner. Some of us are visual learners. I learn by seeing then doing. I enjoy the audio instruction once I know what I’m doing!
This app is seriously a mom’s life saver or just for anyone who needs short awesome workouts you can pair for longer, all while being able to do them anywhere! I’ve been using the app for about 6 weeks now and I already see differences in my body and endurance. Having a little one can make it difficult to find the time to go to a gym, but aaptiv gives the opportunity to work with many different trainers for a better price. Love it!
Great workouts with lots of selection. Keeps me going with an actual voice in my head
DO NOT DOWNLOAD 1/5
They force you to enter your card info before you can even explore the content. The same day I downloaded it, I removed it from my phone. I went to their site and followed the prompts on how to officially cancel my subscription and did as such. Two weeks later they took one hundred dollars out of my bank account. I’ve messaged their “support” online because they have zero numbers listed for you to call. 0/5 stars, I would NEVER encourage anyone to sign up for this awful thing. I didn’t even want to give one star but the store made me rate it. ZERO, APPLE. NO STARS NEEDED.
The app is deceiving BEWARE 1/5
I downloaded the app. Automatically on the 30th day I was charged a fee of $100. I didn’t choose this option they chose it for me of course. Now I’m fighting to get my money back for something I didn’t order.
I was hoping to like it more than I do 3/5
I'm not as impressed with this app as I was hoping I would be. Me biggest complaint is the music. It's okay for the most part but I don't love it. Also, it's often really hard to hear the trainer very well over the music. I wish there was a way to turn off the music off I want to and to control the volume on the music and trainer so I can hear better.
Super! Akeem has the best music! 5/5
Definitely follow Akeem, number one in music selection.
Great variety 5/5
There is something for everyone!
Not accessible with VoiceOver 2/5
Let’s start by saying this app was amazing, accessible and fun. I use my iPhone with the VoiceOver screen reader accessibility and the app is no longer accessible. Please fix, I’m paying for this app and the update broke accessibility.
Music great and upbeat
Never enjoyed working out until Aaptiv 5/5
In the past, when I would go the gym and spend time on treadmills, ellipticals, bikes and stairclimbers I would be bored out of my skull. Ugh so boring. Aaptiv has helped alleviate that boredom tenfold. Thank the lord because I have never enjoyed working out and now I kind of do. I always pick a different workout so I don’t know what to expect — it’s great. I also discovered that I really enjoy yoga, especially Ceasar and his yoga classes. Love love those. Thank you, Aaptiv and Ceasar!
Great for all levels! 5/5
I’m a working mom of 2 young children in my early 40’s. For all of my 20s and 30s and before I became a mom, I was a fitness fanatic - my go to classes were a jump rope circuit, boxing conditioning, capoeira, HIIT classes, and ashtanga yoga. It’s been about 5 years since that time, and now that my youngest has turned one, I want to get back in shape. This app allows me to get my workout done in my living room after the kids go to sleep, and adjust the time and intensity of the workout, and still feel part of a fitness community. The trainers are great too. Just wish I could save my search filters when searching for a class. Thanks!!
Coaching in my ear! 5/5
Love that I get great coaching as I work on running and endurance. I didn’t know where to start and was afraid of injuries... now I am confident!
Very fun and motivating, that said, some of the instructions given by a inatructor 4/5
Is hard to understand and frustrating. Otherwise five stars! If you can come up with the clear guidance of form or example, it would be awesome!
Awesome training app 5/5
Used it for the first time today. Totally loved it. Great music, great trainers and at my own pace!
One star for a Reason 1/5
By M C kala
I was so excited to get this app I had been seeing it in adds and when I finally got it it asked me about a membership. And I thought like any other workout apps that I have had in the past it would still let me do some workouts. Turns out I was wrong all the workouts in there requires a membership and unless your will to pay $100 per year this app then I would not suggest getting this app
Worth every penny.
Love this app 5/5
I have been trying to work out regularly for many years and finally found the motivation to do so with Aaptiv. Highly recommend.
Great concept, needs improvement 3/5
This is a great idea and the coaches I’ve had so far have been awesome. But there are major flaws. Mainly, there is no way to know what’s coming in a workout before hand, e.g. what moves you need to know how to do and what equipment you need to have at the ready.
I have a lot of experience with yoga, so following audio instruction is easy for me when they say to move from up dog to down dog. NOT SO for some of the other workouts. What is a side shuffle? A tricep dip? Halfway into a workout I find I’m suddenly supposed to have different weights and equipment that I either don’t own or don’t have on hand. I find myself pausing the workout and sitting down to watch a YouTube clip of what a proper Russian twist looks like. If you are an experienced fitness enthusiast with access to a suite of equipment, this will be awesome for you. For the rest of us, this app needs a lot of updates to make things easier to follow.
To the developers: how about listing all the equipment you need in the class description? Or little photos that pop up when a new move is mentioned to show what it looks like? Also, it would be great to filter classes by part of the body being worked out, in addition to music and duration.
Random charge 1/5
So I wanted to try this app out and after 7 days it automatically charged me over $100 without any warning which is total BS! Currently trying to get my money back
Latest app update no longer is compatible with voiceover! Please fix! 1/5
I love using this app and found it very easy to navigate until the latest update! Since the latest update the app no longer works with voiceover and I am unable to navigate the different programs or even search through the filter. This app has become in accessible for users that use voiceover. Please fix this!
Fitting In Extra Workouts 5/5
I’ve been using Aaptiv to squeeze quick workouts in where I otherwise wouldn’t get them, and for the treadmill workouts. I am staying on the treadmill 20 minutes longer than I ever have before thanks to this app. I’m definitely doing more workouts and working out harder than I would on my own. Loving it!
GET. THIS. APP. 5/5
Shamefully I never take the time to rate an app but wow!! This app is amazing! I feel like i’m in a soul cycle class. I also love the running workouts as well as the rowing (which I had never tried before). This is seriously the best motivation for anyone looking to get their fitness up and it lets you start slow and the class options get harder as you get better. Seriously so much cheaper and just as good as overly priced workout classes.
Took 99.99 for what exactly 1/5
Poor customer service
Great app for at home workouts. 5/5
I don’t have the time to make it to the gym or class everyday. Aaptiv has really helped me get back into shape - especially as I had gotten quite out of shape. Great app.
Helps motivate 5/5
I never wrote reviews but I will say that the app has really helped me focus my exercise. I am a 52 year old female who had major abdominal and pelvic surgery last summer along w instant menopause so it’s been a struggle to maintain fitness and I found myself with excess abdominal fat and overall feeling “ blah”.
With the app I have been able to get outside and start running again with the focused run- walk programs ( started w walk only now up to the intervals of walk- jog- run) also I really enjoy the meditations. My plan is to do some workouts at the gym with treadmill- elliptical-stairs and strength but have been focused more outdoors due to great weather! I have used personal trainers in the past and this is equally motivating if not more so because of the variety. I now have more energy and stamina and am much less bloated. I recommend this app to anyone needed a little push !
Great workouts, but app can benefit from usability improvements 4/5
Fantastic concept and great value for the price! Would like to see these features added:
1. Follow / subscribe to specific trainers
2. Favorite trainers show up on the top of the list to reduce scrolling needed for trainers located further down or right
3. Key highlights summarizing the workout (min/max speeds, interval durations, number of intervals, interval rotation)
4. Ability for users to log their own notes about each workout
