It’s nice app 5/5
By priya 89
This is very nice app for your goal to stay fit
Terrible support 2/5
So I download the app, and select a plan, which is kind of not cool to do without even letting me check out the app, as soon as I select a plan I put it on pause to make I sure I like the app first. Launch the app, and liked it, pretty good workouts (some too hardcore and great) but there weren’t that many of them, but it’s just their first launch, I get it. So my 7 days expire and I go to select my plan and it says that my “Lifetime” discount is not there because I “canceled” my subscription. I didn’t even pay a subscription to cancel it haha. Anyways, I message the support and they’re not willing to give me my “Lifetime” discount. It’s kind of funny how they call it lifetime and it’s kind of not, they didn’t give me a warning but oh well. The support train is TERRIBLE, they even came off rude and unhelpful, is the support team based off Australia and it’s normal to be that way or something?
Too expensive 3/5
Apps now days are too expensive with the subscriptions. You need to make it more affordable so people like me that are not rich can use this kind of app too.
Great concept, good app, not great content 3/5
The concept and the app are pretty good. Chris Hemsworth’s team (Hemsworth only appearing in the promo material, apparently just the front guy and owner/investor), on the other hand, produces a little bit of good, but mostly gee-whiz content. Lots and lots of articles on stuff I don’t care about (mindfulness, gardening veggies, meditation, life perspectives, etc), with a lot of other info I could get for free online.
Food guide is bad. Recipes with pretentious names that content-wise are 90% vegetarian (what?!?) using ingredients most people can’t afford or even acquire at a traditional grocery store, and misleading prep times. Anecdotally, some people online said they spent 75 US$ on 2 days worth of food for one person. The app says you can start your own garden to save money, but who has time and space for that? The other “money saving tips” were either obvious or offensive, and straight out of the mouths of people disconnected from the reality of everyday working folks. We don’t have a movie star or LA bodybuilder’s budget to feed a family of 2, 3, 6, etc.
Workouts seem OK, but again, nothing I couldn’t get online for free elsewhere (the subscription is $10-20 per month depending on duration?!?). I want to know how Hemsworth became Thor... I would pay money (one time) for those workouts and that diet plan. But that is nowhere to be found unfortunately, at least not in one neat package, but can be found online in various men’s fitness magazines. A lot of training is just simple weight lifting by a shredded vegan guy who is apparently on the app to inspire you to give up your evil meat eating ways. Do I really need a guide to show me how to do biceps curls, squats, or skull crushes? Answer is really no. Any weight lifting website or book will tell you how to do this.
That said, there are some cool things on here like the Foundation Training by Dr. Eric Goodman for decompressing your spine, strengthening your core, and relieving back pain. This is not so obvious. Also Da Rulk’s training is legit - highly recommend. Everything else is just basic weight lifting or doing cardio boxing or MMA without the “official” training of going to a gym or dojo. Which to be honest is more productive since you have sparring partners and people who can hold pads for you while you kick and punch. And people who can give you immediate feedback on your technique. Which is really the biggest downer of this app. You only have “access” to all of Chris Hemsworth’s advisor if you consider “access” to mean videos or articles of them showing you how to do stuff. There is no interactivity, they will not come to your house to give you pointers. And chances are you can not afford to fly to them, much less pay for their time.
Overall, a great concept that falls flat in execution. I admire Hemsworth wanting to build this business, to help people, and to showcase his friends front and center rather than hogging the limelight. And I do hope he can get some passive income from this to allow him to step out of Hollyweird and into a nice settled family life is Australia. He seems like one of the good guys, and I wish him and his well.
Love the Support from the Centr team and community 5/5
I love the workouts, meal plans and snacks. I love how everything is thoroughly explained for me to understand and achieve my personal goal. I highly recommend this to anyone who is serious about getting fit, getting tone or eating healthy. Thank you Centr team for taking the time to putting together a well developed app.
The workouts are great but diet plan is trash 3/5
I’ll start out by saying the workout videos are amazing. I loved the coaches option. But what really kills this program is the diet. For one your grocery bill is going to triple. Two no one is really going to eat these types of foods unless you are already healthy type person. It’s just to drastic of a change to normal eating habits.
Great Idea to Take it Up a Notch 5/5
Hi Centr Team,
Love the app. Workouts are great and the recepies look delicious. I feel there is a missed opportunity with making these amazing recepies into a fresh pre-made meal plan for people who are always on the go like me and don't have time to cook. This would smash the market and be a real differentiator.
My fiance and I gave the trial a go and the workouts were great. As avid gym goers we are always looking for an at home option. You have done an awesome job putting together great workouts with a lifestyle. We want to take full advantage but it's hard to find time to cook these amazing recepies. YouFoodz needs a competitor. You should be it.
Happy to talk more about this idea. I see a massive opportunity in the market for this workout-fit centered lifestyle but with an option that allows working mom's and people on the go to have the meals prepared for them.
Just a thought. Keep up the good work.
Great content, Great Price 5/5
This is great content for a great price! This app has it all that a person needs for their physical, mental and dietary well-being.
Just one thing. Please add a function to mirror the videos to chrome cast!!!!!
Loving it 5/5
I never write reviews but since I’ve enjoyed this app so much this week I decided it was worth it.
I just finished my 7-day free trial and I’m definitely going to stay on with the monthly subscription. I chose the muscle building program (I’m a small woman looking to gain weight, for reference) to follow along with and so far it’s been fantastic. I love that your week is planned ahead for you and you can take things at your own pace.
I haven’t tried any of the recipes yet - they’re a little too ambitious for me at the moment - but they do look delicious and I love the way the menu is set up.
Someone in another review mentioned a log to look back on previous workouts - I think this is a fantastic suggestion! I’d love to have a monthly (eventually even yearly) overview and be able to see what days you worked out/what workouts you did/etc. I’d also love to see a “notes” feature for each day to keep track of weights and such.
Great fitness app 5/5
I’ve used Fitbod, LoseIt, and my FitnessPal. Out of all those I prefer Centr. It has the best of everything in one place. It has the best info, great meal plans, and really gives well rounded workouts. I want to complain about the price but I get it. It could use a little tweaking on how the workouts are laid out, and simplify some receipts; the ingredients can get pricy too. All-in-all it’s the best all in one fitness app I’ve found.
Love it! 5/5
This is by far the best workout/health app I’ve ever used! Love the meals and the workouts themselves have been absolutely killer. Only issue I have at the moment is the Apple Watch app for this won’t close on my watch and it’s draining the batter way too fast. Hopefully they’ll fix this in the near future!
Great value 5/5
I’ve never paid for a fitness app before because few have a pescatarian option or varied workouts to keep the body guessing, but this app has all of that. It has lived up to the hype and I’m truly grateful for the help in figuring out my nutrition and fitness as a busy law student (much cheaper than hiring a nutritionist). In response to people having trouble with grocery bills, I’m not having too much trouble with the budget. I’m not sure how many servings other people are using, but I have 1-4 servings per meal and don’t spend more than $120 per week. The key is swapping meals that have expensive ingredients with some similar, cheaper options and taking advantage of the leftovers. The only issue I’ve had is a bug (not sure what else to call it) where the serving changes on my planner don’t update to my shopping list. But, I’ve reached out to them about this and I’m confident they’ll help me out soon.
As for people upset that there’s not more Chris Hemsworth, I suppose you could always watch YouTube videos of his interviews and behind the scenes footage. I don’t mind that he’s not on every screen because the point isn’t to stalk CH, it’s to take advantage of the high quality team he has around him that helps him prep for roles and avoid injury. Your goals will probably be vastly different from his.
I would recommend having some KT Tape on hand after the boxing workouts. I chose beginner and it had me wobbling like a toddler for days. Loving it! Thanks!
Best workout/lifestyle app 5/5
I love this app so much and can’t stop recommending it to people. Workouts are intelligent and thoughtful, with variations and bonus workouts so all levels can get their best fitness.
Sundays are rest days and I found myself sad that there wasn’t a workout (although the thought process makes total sense). After just a week I found my body already looks more fit and toned and I’ve definitely lost a couple pounds. Highly highly recommend, and make sure you really use all aspects of the app, it’s worth it
Good app 3/5
The app works great and is loaded with good recipes and workouts. My only complaint is the recipes, they are extremely unreasonable for someone that’s on a budget. Someone that lives in the Midwest isn’t going to be able to find majority of theses ingredients and if they do they’ll be very expensive.
Love it! And a few suggestions 4/5
I LOVE this app! The variety of exercise styles and the daily planner have been excellent for keeping me on track! As a full time employee, mom, wife, and nursing student, this is huge for me. My extremely busy schedule has made it difficult for me to maintain consistency with my workouts, but the short ones provided in this app have made it possible, and on top of that, the daily planner has made it motivating. I even had time this past Wednesday after working and having nursing clinicals from 8:30 AM to 10:30 PM to come home and complete my workout! (Which, thankfully, was yoga)
All of the meals I’ve made so far have been great and relatively simple. I love the breakfast smoothies especially, they are simple, delicious, and my two year old enjoys them too!
A few things I wish this app did have:
-The option to add additional meals/snacks/activities that are not listed in the app. Fresh fruit is a favorite snack of mine, and I do lots of walking, but as of now those things can’t be added and tracked.
-A nutrition tracker: I’d love if the app included a total count for my calorie/fiber/protein/etc. intake for the day and charts for the days, weeks, and months. I can write all of this down from the information provided in the app and track it that way, but it’s much more inconvenient than if it would count these things automatically. I’d also like to see micronutrients included!
-Modified versions of the workouts for pregnancy: we’re hoping to have another little one on the way sometime in the near future, and I’d love to still be able to use the annual subscription I paid for
-The ability to design my own workouts! A feature that would allow me to take the short video clips provided and organize them into my own workout would be awesome!
If you want to change buy this app 5/5
If you’re looking for an app that will tell you what to eat and how you’re supposed to work out then look no further. This app tells you exactly what you’re supposed to do. Before buying Centr I was always frustrated with my body. I had tried every diet and workout routine imaginable and never had satisfying results. Centr is a game changer. I follow it exactly and it’s changed my life, and it will change yours too.
High quality 5/5
I’m surprised by the high quality of this app. The videos, UI design, and content are really well made. The workouts are great for business travelers living in hotels. I hope they can add more body weight only workouts in the future.
Ambitious- but not perfect. 4/5
By James Sonny Crockett
Very polished presentation. However,it is essentially a web portal which is somewhat disappointing.As a Keelo user I enjoyed not being tied to an Internet connection to access the workouts. A big step forward would be downloading your day and in advance. I tend to work out in my garage a lot and the Internet is pretty spotty.(yes I know just buy an extender)
My free trial is ending and I plan on staying with the app.
I highly recommend buying the ingredients for the week in advance if possible.
Other than the ability to download workouts I would like to see some suspension training included at some point. As for the one star reviews.. I don’t really think that’s fair to review an app based on the fact that you have to pay for it. Just my two cents there’s plenty of free apps out there.
Better food prep options please! 3/5
By recipe critiques
This app is amazing. The workouts are fantastic. The food is fantastic. I didn’t expect to, but I even love the mediation portions.
1) More meals that are good from making in advance or bringing to work and heating up. So many of the lunches or breakfasts assume you are making and eating immediately. For the majority of people, we don’t have the ability of cooking lunch in a kitchen on a Tuesday. I’m at work and all I have is a microwave and a fridge and same for children.
2) I eat 80% plant based but I still eat meat. Once in the app I’d like to have access to ALL of the recipes. I dislike that I have to choose and then have to flip the setting back and forth (which the app does not do well) to get the recipes I want.
Fix those two issues and I’ll be back! Thanks for the amazing work on this app. It’s astounding in quality and production! I can’t wait to see it grow!
I was so exited to see this app when it came out thinking they’ll be tips on work outs and training but when you sign up it’s just another expensive monthly cost to show a person what anyone can find for free online. I immediately deleted the app. It’s ridiculous.
Good App, Amazing Program 5/5
I’m writing this review less than one week from its launch. There were a few bugs in the first couple days, but I wrote to the team and they responded immediately. Not only that, I gave them some feedback on the program itself and they accepted that feedback too. They’re working out kinks incredibly quickly, and the app works seamlessly with the website.
On to the content itself- I have never ever seen a holistic and flexible program like this. I’m vegan (I went vegan for my health about six months ago) and I never thought I’d find a meal plan designed for someone working out regularly. The recipes are AMAZING, and are so easy to customize to your tastes and what’s available at your local market. My shopping cart has never looked so green! Not only that, but they design the portions so that you have leftovers, enabling you to reduce the amount of time you spend in the kitchen while getting the benefits of home cooked meals. You also have the option of swapping out meals that you don’t like- what meal plan makes it easy to do that?!
The workouts are great. Over the course of the last week, I switched up my chosen exercise track to get a feel for what I liked. The “Lose Weight” track was focused on burning calories and reducing calorie intake through food. The “Get Fit & Toned” track mixes cardio with weights to provide fat loss with muscle gain. Finally, there’s the “Build Muscle” track. This is focused on upping protein and calorie intake and weightlifting routines. What amazing about all of these is that they can be done at home with less than $100 of equipment. They also give you suggestions on equipment swaps in case that’s still out of your budget.
Lastly, there’s a mental wellness aspect to the program which is great. Meditations and reflections are provided to help you stay on track, stay positive, sleep better, and all of the encompassing mindsets necessary for supporting a healthy life.
Overall, this app is great and the program is amazing. I’ve never committed to a program like I’ve committed to this, and I can’t wait to share my results.
Best app ever! Change your life, change yourself 5/5
Looking to workout? Eat healthy? Transform your life for the better? Well this app has it all! Workouts! Meal plan of amazing recipes! Mediation. Transform yourself. Stay on track! The workouts are structured to keep it interesting! Some of the most challenging workouts I’ve done in a long time! Will reveal where you are in need of improvement! And of course Chris Hemsworth checking in and motivating you to keep at it!
Not worth it. 1/5
This app is a joke
Mixed bag 3/5
The app is slick and nice but there are no ways to log your workouts or nutrition. It seems odd to not be able to look back at your workouts or check your weight etc.
Essentially... the app functions like an interactive wellness magazine rather than something truly functional.
Additionally... the food and recipes while nice.. aren’t exactly ‘accessible’ for many people... be prepared to spend a lot of time trying to cook and a lot more money at the store. Many ingredients aren’t cheap.
THIS IS AMAZING 5/5
By Instagram- Luke_Gnospelius_
I’m 15, i have been searching the app store for a workout app these past months. It’s an annoying and exhausting process. You gotta find the right one that will fit what you need. Yet, this is for everyone! I am in awe of this app. I don’t know how it does it. My body has inflated in a positive way. I used to be really toned but really skinny. Now i’m muscular! Thx to the Centr team!!!
P.S. I could probably lift mjonirl (idk how to spell it).
I have tried literally every app,workout program,dvd etc... this is by far the very best! From workout variety, follow video or self guided, food, excellent trainers, set up of app thought of everything!!! ❤️🙌🏻🙏🏻
What I Need 5/5
I workout from home and I have a few fitness apps I use. By far this app is more challenging and fun! Got me excited about fitness all over again. Looking forward to the future workouts. Btw the recipes are amazing ;-)
Exactly what I’ve always wanted 5/5
By Daniell Mayer
This app is the best workout app I’ve come across in a long time I’ve used about 5 or so and they do t have a set up like this where it gives you videos articles meal plans etc it is everything in one and couldn’t be more thrilled to be almost done with my first week 100% would recommend spending your money in this.
Maybe later 3/5
I was so excited to see this app as I’m vegan and can never find a fitness/meal plan app that follows those guidelines. I tried a few days and enjoyed exploring everything but the meals were a little over the top. I was hoping for a more reasonable menu half of the items I’d never even heard of and finding them in the middle of Nebraska is going to be impossible. The price wasn’t terrible maybe later when I can afford it and I’ll try to just make my own twist to the recipes
Motivating App 5/5
Centr has been a wonderful fit for me. I’d previously done the Zoco Body Pro beginners guide, however after two repetitions of that 12 week program I found myself getting board with the repetition. Centr has a ton of variety. I especially like the guided workouts. The coaches have great advice and are positive and motivating. I also like that you’re not locked in to a specific program. You can go between beginner, intermediate, and advanced easily based on your preference for that workout. You can also change your dietary plan between regular, vegan, etc... I think that’s an awesome and special thing, most other programs make you spend more to unlock new workout levels or new diet plans. I absolutely love this app and have committed to a year long subscription. I also love that you can access it from the website. I tend to use that most of the time as I like to play the guided workouts on my large computer monitor so it’s easier for me to follow along.
Just What I Was Looking For 4/5
This app is just what I was looking for. I don’t want to make any decisions I want it all in one app for me. This is it. Shopping list for good meals that aren’t over the top or weird like some “diety” meals are. Choose your meals and add the ingredients automatically to your list. Planner for each day with a workout and your meals that you can swap for other days. Chris Hemsworth has been a fitness inspiration for me for awhile and this was a no-brainer. Say what you want about him only being the fact, but I like whatever he is involved with in it (videos etc.) Only gripe is that I can’t cast the workouts to my Chromecast or smart TV. Other than that, great app for those who want to take any and all guess work out of fitness and meal planning.
Just the right app 5/5
Great variety when it comes to workouts, meditation, and recipes. I love the articles and extra videos provided. The focus is on the whole person, not just the physical fitness.
Having read some one star reviews, I have not experienced any of the problems they are saying. I’m not tech savvy and find the app to be easy to figure out.
LOVE THIS APP!!! 5/5
I don’t write reviews, ever. People say that all the time but I truly don’t. But I feel like I need to brag on this amazing app. This has been the motivation I’ve needed. I have told my friends about it and talk about the new things I’m doing and eating every day, they are even jealous of some of my recipes as they should be! Haha. In regards to recipes, yes it’s expensive at first getting the staples but after one week I’ve realized I won’t need much of anything because I have so much left over so don’t let that scare you. Healthy is expensive and sometimes you need to invest in your goals but they have never once said “following these recipes exactly is the end all be all” so don’t feel the need to buy every little thing. Do what you feel is best. I LOVE that it gives me a new workout every day. Usually when it comes to working out at home, I try to put it off or completely avoid it because I know exactly what I’ll be doing since it’s the same exact workout video as the day before and I know the dread that is coming. I love that this app gives you new workouts everyday so you never know what to expect and it’s allowing me to try workouts I could never do before but always wanted to. Take the time, explore it, it will come natural to find things and figure it out with a little bit of time. I don’t regret for a second the money I spent on this because when I am feeling better both mentally and physically in the long run I know it will be worth it!!
THE app that keeps on giving! 5/5
I signed up just for the workouts. What I got was so much more! First off, the workouts are amazing! There are world class trainers ready to help you reach your goals, no matter what your fitness level. You want strength training? How about yoga or Pilates? Do you just want an incredibly sweaty, fat burning workout? They’ve got it all here. The trainers are super helpful and even answer questions on social media and post frequent videos to help the members out. You have the choice to do what workouts your planner gives you daily (plus, what to eat, including recipes and a really awesome shopping list) as well as some meditations to help you sleep or just de-stress. If you don’t want what Centr has chosen for you, you simply push the ‘switch it up’ button and pick something else. They even have some great info on having healthy relationships. I could go on and on about what Centr has to offer. You really just need to get it and do it. And to all those complaining about the price, I’m paying 27 cents a day to better my life in so many areas! Shhh, don’t tell Chris Hemsworth but I would pay a lot more for this incredible app! ❤️💪
App Support/Grocery List Bug 3/5
I like the app, but there is no app support. I tried to find a way to contact Centr to make them aware of a bug, but the only way to do it is to write a review. Hence, this review. The big is when you attempt to adjust serving quantity within one recipe on the Grocery List, it changes all recipe servings to the selected quantity.
All the trainers are very involved with the app and their Facebook community page! Never seen anything like it before in the first week they’ve already made updates and improvements based on USER suggestions very happy with it and hope they all stay this involved in the months to come
Kills my Apple Watch 4 3/5
Installed it in my watch but haven’t used it yet. My battery life was literally cut in half. Barely made it 1 day when I would make it 2 days with room to spare.
Please look into this.
Finally, a thoughtful and full mind and body experience 5/5
By Ben Allgood
This app hits all major elements of what you’d want from a user centric: body resistance, core, lifestyle, yoga, cardio, combat workouts, and gourmet/celebrity style meal planning that’s easy to make and customize.
Features like being able to swap workouts, events, meals is incredibly powerful and makes personalizing the plan easy.
My expectations were fully met and can’t wait to see what future iterations improve upon!
Absolutely loving this app 5/5
It’s easy to navigate, got lots of great information, and I like how the days and the weeks are broken down - it’s not too overwhelming. Nicely done!
Worth it 5/5
If you need someone to tell you exactly what to eat and what exercises to do each day then this is for you. Lots of options for meals and snacks. Workouts that kick my butt. Definitely what I’ve been missing in my own fitness journey. This feels like something that will help me form good habits not just another diet.
Not to mention all the added features like meditation and articles about things that pertain to this journey!
Good start 4/5
I think this app is great for people who don’t really know where to start with their healthy lifestyle, but for those who have already put a lot of effort in, it’s not much. I like the idea of it, but the weightlifting workouts had me bored to tears and they only have one leg focused workout. I would keep it for the other workouts, but not for the money when I can find similar exercises on YouTube. It’s nice having everything in one place, just not for me as I don’t mind searching the internet until I find what I want.
So far so good 5/5
I really enjoy the workouts and all the articles. I haven’t been brave enough to tackle the recipes yet, I’m trying to get through my current groceries first. The app is rather basic a little more simple than I expected but I’m sure that will improve in future iterations. Looking forward to growing along side this app, I hope it really takes odd and continues to get support.
Basically it’s a one stop lifestyle app and program 5/5
I’ve really been enjoying the app and accompanying site for several reasons.
1. I don’t have time to plan a nutritionally sound, calorically correct and interesting meal plan. It’s done for me - all I have to do is review, swap if I don’t like a choice and cook. The chefs are involved and the support team answers questions in a timely manner.
2. Likewise, I am not an expert trainer in any discipline. The workouts advised are on point and challenging. They are appropriate for my level. The trainers are available to encourage and answer questions.
3. Meditations and sleep visualizations are included to address that lifestyle aspect as well.
My arms are so Thor! 5/5
Loving this app. The meal planning the workouts that are differently focused every day. The pools of sweat being left on my carpeted floor... maybe I should put down a towel. Anyways, love this app. The recipes have been tasty, I feel better, look better (unless I stand next to Chris Hemsworth), and am performing throughout my day at a higher level than my previous slothiness was allowing me to do.
Worth every penny 5/5
I’m thrilled with this app - it has everything a person needs to get fit if you do the work and commit to change. The access to trainers and nutritionists is amazing. These guys know what they are doing. Ignore the noise of the whiners - the app is brand new and the admin has been actively taking critique when things can be improved. Enjoy this app for what it is - a GREAT tool for people who need guidance or encouragement or knowledge to effect change.
Amazing support and great team! 5/5
I purchased this app because I’m tired of the same routine at the gym. I needed some variety. What better way to mix it up than with some of the best trainers out there! It allows you pick your activity level and even food preferences. If you’re REALLY ready to take charge of your health with the help of leading experts, get this app!
Old but trying 5/5
I’m older than a lot on this app But I’ve been doing the exercises lay my level. Love the food love the yoga. This is awesome thanks
Great for me 5/5
I’ve tried a lot of things to get/keep healthy and fit. I don’t like the normal day in, day out bodybuilding routines. Not knocking them, if that’s your cup of tea, go for it! I like change in my workouts, not monotony. I get that through Centr. I was a bit skeptical at first, Pilates? Body weight? Shadow boxing? How’s that gonna work? Man, it works! It’ll leave you puffing and panting, sweating. It’s effective, it’s fun. The staff and coaches are friendly and supportive. The workouts are challenging and fun, the meals are good and pretty easy to prep, and the mindfulness is a refreshing change. I plan on sticking with Centr, and I’m excited to see the results that come. I’d absolutely recommend this app to anyone that gets bored in the gym, needs to shake up their routine.
I was so excited for this app 4/5
By Milos Pantelejic
I admire Chris and love everything what’s he about, i downloaded the app the first day they put it on here but once I saw the price... monthly?? Too expensive for me currently, had to delete it. I’m reading great reviews about it and I hope I can afford it one day.
