Definitely not free 3/5
By french toast yummy
Checked my bank account I guess I paid for this even though it said it was free 😪
Well worth the money, no matter which plan you pick 5/5
I am prior military, a current cop, and a former certified Crossfit trainer with three years experience training clients at a Crossfit box. Frequent work travel, coupled with an inability to access key pieces of workout equipment have derailed many programs I have tried over the last several years. Couple this with two new kids, some nagging overuse injuries, and the usual stresses of life and the me I see in the mirror in my mid thirties is markedly different from the me I saw staring back just five years ago, not to mention much slower and weaker. I decided to try a simpler, more minimalist approach to fitness that I could take with me literally anywhere, and started looking at fitness apps for my phone. I was looking for a Bodyweight or KB program when I ran across a review of the Freeletics app. Freeletics is relatively popular in Europe, but hasn’t made a huge splash here in the US yet. I decided to give this app a shot, and so far I am very impressed. The workouts and programming are tailored to your schedule, what little space or equipment you have access to (I.e. a pull-up bar, and floor space), and your own abilities. The program also adapts itself to how you are progressing as you proceed through it. For instance, my first week was relatively easy, and I breezed through even the metcon drills... so I made sure to say as much in the little questionnaires which you are asked at the end of each session. The second week: way more challenging! Much more volume, more intense circuits, and harder skills to master with the “drills” sessions at the beginning of your workout. The app itself is relatively easy to learn to utilize, and has lots of helpful videos to demonstrate any movements or skill sets you aren’t familiar with. You can also access soundtracks, nutrition content, and blog articles. All in all, for a couple bucks a week, I give this app a solid 5 Star rating after my first couple weeks.
Great app but I guess can do better? 4/5
I love this app, really. But minor suggestion, can the devs enable a landscape mode for ipad users? Or am I just missing something? Either way, keep up the good work!
In May 2018, I will have had this app for a subscribed year. In that year I have done the same exercises over and over and over again. I even reset the app twice and still all I've done are squats, lunges, sprawls, push ups and crunches. There are so many other exercises I see in the app that I want to do but the “Coach” rarely brings in anything new. If I do get a new exercise like “superman” i get to do it once every few months.
I complained to Freeletics over a month ago and they said they would help but nothing happened.
I like the interface of this app but everything else is just repetitive and it’s not worth another year long subscription.
The company has responded saying they help and have another look into my training plan. As noted above you had that chance a month ago and no one helped me and NOTHING changed.

I really love this app. It's convenient and you can take it anywhere.
In app subscription prices are a lie 1/5
So I downloaded the app after seeing an ad to help me with my fitness and overall physical health and when I got to the part for the subscription the prices were not as they were meant to be. I clicked the 12 month one because it said it was about $2 and some change but then I got an email saying I’ve been charged $114.99. I’m looking up ways to get a refund from them but I’m very upset that they would just lie about the prices instead of just putting the full amount. Im sure this app is great but I’m never going to use this again :/
Love this app! 5/5
Loving it! Great value for the price in my opinion
Needs improvement 4/5
I like the app right now & how the coach is there with exercises & workouts. There’s a bug that won’t allow me to finish an exercise. I’m not sure why. Also it would be nice if there was an image of what muscles you are working out with each exercise. Keep improving!
Was the best app at first 1/5
Now it is getting worse and worse
Return Freeletics MAX back
Return website workout log ability
add ability to add workouts made without your timer QUICKLY as it was on your website.
Add customizable workouts! We want to perform old Freeletics Pro ARES with Jackknives, Pro ver of HYPERION with OH Pushups, Pro ver of ZEUS with 5 Strict HS Pushups and so on.
App periodically crashes during workout, on 3rd round of 5 for eg, and we have to start over with incorrect time.
Freeletics Pro app was a lot better.
Now it is NOT THE BEST VERSION OF YOU
The workout app 5/5
This app is so great and tell your friends about it
Should be called pay letics 2/5
I want to start off by saying it’s a great app and if you get a coach and follow the plans you will get in shape no
Doubt but it’s not free and the name is FREE LETICS. I think it’s wrong that y’all named it that but y’all do have a good setup but totally deceived me with the name
Request / Suggestion 4/5
Love the app. Would it be possible to make the app compatible with the Apple Watch? Maybe make it possible to keep track of stuff
Live Free(letics) or Die 5/5
BEST fitness app. It truly is #1. I can’t speak enough of how great this app is and how positively life altering it is. Yes, life altering. This app rids you of excuses to not do exercise and puts you in the driver’s seat on your way to a better you.
Fantastic app... 5/5
Please don’t turn evil and ruin it guys..
Bait and switch 1/5
One workout then then you can’t continue without a WEEKLY fee.
Where’s the companion watch app? 2/5
That’s what missing with this app. It’s seems to be a great app, I tried it and the concept is fantastic. I just can’t understand why there’s no companion watch app for it; I can’t picture myself purchasing/paying for the subscription service without the watch app! I am currently using another fantastic gym app with a great companion watch app that I considered dropping if this one could’ve been used with the Apple Watch. I recommended to wait and see if they develop a good companion app. It’s not a bad app but there’s a lot of room for improvement. Someone said watch app? Where is it?
Helping me lose weight 5/5
By Blood and carnage
I’ve only been using this app for a week. And barely been using the coach suggested workouts, only single exercises for about 10 mins every morning. And I’ve been seeing fat disappear from my mid section really fast! It makes me want to do the longer exercises at night to see more progress.
By not relatable at all
Maybe don’t call your app “freeletics” if there are no free options to try before signing up for the paid version. There are a million similar apps out there to this that offer at least a 30 day trial.
Pass. I wanted a schedule this isn't it 1/5
By Big D Guitars
I am so confused by this. I started a workout on Monday. Tell me what to do on Tuesday... this isn't it.
Too many screens on what to purchase and when. I saw this somewhere saying it would do what I wanted for free but this isn't it.
Disappointed with this.
VOLUME SETTINGS 1/5
By Evan customer
I would like to give five stars to the app, but I find it incredibly annoying that there are no volume settings for all the in-app cues. They cues are VERY LOUD, and disruptive of any other audio one is listening to while working out. I would like to be able to turn off the audio cues, countdowns etc, or at least make them quieter so they don't disrupt the other audio I'm listening too.
They will bill a renewal no matter what!!! 1/5
I cancelled my subscription mid year last year, but they just charged me $135 in February for another year, even after reaching out to customer support!! Do not use, as you will be charged for a renewal, even if you cancel. Very unprofessional! The company is actively stealing money!! Scandalous!!!
Coach rules! 5/5
This is the only exercise program I’ve been able to adhere to for 60 (!) weeks straight. It changed my perception of my own strength. Can't recommend Freeletics enough!
Great start 4/5
By PANIC ITS TYLOR
I just started with the coaching version of this app. I love that it takes all the guess work out of what you need to do I order to get results. All you need to do is bring your best effort to the sessions.
You get what you put in 5/5
High intensity interval training that focuses on the entire body but also develops the core; the base for all workout.
Good but... 3/5
WAY Too many screens in between each exercise I don’t want to record notes about every single thing I do about my workout I just want to quickly move to the next exercise they could probably cut half of the screens and clicks that are currently in between each exercise and make it a much more seamless experience. Otherwise I do feel like I get a pretty good workout from the routines.
Great Toning App 4/5
I am really enjoying the quick results I get from this app. The exercises are targeted and the coach organized workouts are effective. I just wish it had a screen to graphically track your goals and progress toward meeting them.
Committed? This app is a great partner. 5/5
Freeletics is a great tool for anyone going towards health. It has helped me a lot in my journey towards health. If you are committed, it’s the best app out there.
The do their work with excellence; from the videos to the workouts to always improving, Freeletics is a solid company.
One of the coolest things is meeting people who are in it and do Freeletics too!
Get this app!

Worst customer service; and exercise app 1/5
By Cloudy views
Cancelled subscription as I tried several of these apps, and this one wasn’t great.
The Nike app is free, and tons better - with the ability to sort by type of workout and time you have.
Despite cancelling they continued to charge my account, and refused to refund my money.
It is a complete scam; don’t sign up for this.
Nike train club app is way better not even close 1/5
This app was half thought out and disorganized. Much better info out there I’m an advanced lifter I bench 315+ squat over 400 so I do know what I’m talking about.
Good not great 3/5
Mixed feelings about this app. On the plus side it seems the exercises are well thought out and will yield results in time. Intense but gratifying.
If in the description you say no equipment necessary, then why do you suddenly introduce a pull up bar? This is basic no? You say no equipment it should mean no equipment.
It’s annoying there is no Apple Watch companion app. These are always very useful.
Good technique is emphasized which is great, but every time you play an exercise demonstration video an annoying background music plays. This drives me crazy - specially if you are listening to your own music. The default setting should be muted!!!
Some exercises are demoed without having to play a video while others are not. All should be demoed in the background.
Sometimes the app requests feedback after a single exercise which is great but sometimes a whole sequence of different exercises go bye before feedback is required. How are you supposed to say exercise A was great but exercise B I couldn’t do?
So too many issues in my opinion. I got the 3 month subscription and I very much doubt I will renew.
So far, it’s great 4/5
Really good workouts, and the difficulty increases/decreases based on previous exercises. It has a nice variety of moves, and a simple, intuitive interface.
The only thing missing is a Watch app so I don’t have to keep looking at my phone constantly when I’m at the gym.
Awsome so far 5/5
Great app workouts are explained, the coach is highly recommended but is free without it, I’ll try the coach when there’s a special hahaha recommended already feeling the burn
Beware cancellation and customer service issues 1/5
Beware - Coach subscription ($90) renews without a reminder, and there is no option to receive a refund. Customer service is unhelpful / very poor. Company is just trying to trap cancelling customers for another year.
NOT FREE AT ALL 1/5
By non hypocrite
FREE-letics???? Are you kidding me?? More like 89.99-letics...It gives you one poot of a workout then asks for your credit card! Hippocrites!! DONT GET THIS APP
Always promot to subscribe to coach. I am already a subscriber. 2/5
I had a subscription for 12 momths. Meanwhile, I always get prompt to subscribe to coach again and again.
Love this program! 4/5
By Av8r Dave
I’ve been using Freeletics for just over a year. I love the variety and the challenge. No two days are the same. Two things I’d like to see 1) being to “deload” a week if I miss a week or two to acclimate back into it. I’m 44 and I can’t just rebound like I used to. 2) be able to access the warm up and cool down portions separately from a workout. On my rest days, I’d still like to perform these movements to stay limber.
Simply put, if you do t use it why charge you 1/5
By The Alfy
I haven't used the app for over five months. I requested a cancellation and refund and they said they can't refund me. Honestly this is basic customer service. If your customer has NOT used your service WHY THE HELL would you charge them!? Anyway, that's my rant....
Bad design 1/5
I downloaded the set of apps and opened Bodyweight first. I used Google to sign up, when I went to the other apps though it had no google sign in option, so I effectively have to make two accounts to use them, if only I had used Facebook instead.
Why offer google as a signup on one if you can’t use it anywhere else.
Free - not free! 1/5
Free, but have to pay for a subscription so it’s not free - I could call Netflix free with that description. Tons of apps are free to download but require a subscription - nobody advertises them as “free” and calls them “free”letics. Dumb!!
Very little content. Exercise plans aren’t fun. Tries to lock you into a long-term subscription, but you can’t view or sample the subscription content before hand. Tries to convince you to link your Facebook (probably to extract your personal data and friends). Tries to get you to enable location services (why not just allow zip code? Why do they need my precise location? Hmmm.) Oh, and there’s no apparent way to delete your account.
By abodi basha
Totally new system yet effective.
Great app. Great program. Great value 5/5
Only been using this app for a few days but it has been great so far. I feel like the app really helps me to push towards an obtainable goal every day, even if it seems out of my comfort zone. The personalized coach asks questions to lay out a personalized set of exercises. It works around your schedule. Combined with the nutrition app this is the best planned exercise program I have seen.
Too expensive 1/5
Love the app, but the paid version is way too expensive.
Great app to keep a routine but... 3/5
By ( aog )
The app gives a great set of workouts and keeps you moving and sweating. There are different types of exercise for the same area of the body so no boring session at all.
A few suggestions though:
1. Include a button where the session could be paused in case of something happening (door rang, phone call, bathroom break) especially for those workouts that are timed.
2. Add more areas in the limitations section, for instance there is nothing for shoulders or wrists.
3. Is there a plan to have a more interactive couching? Chat for instance?
I don’t if the feedback at the end of each session is read. It would be good to know and get a response on it too.
App crashed and lost all my history 1/5
By El Raton Juan Carlos
App suddenly crashed and lost all my history of workouts. Now is not getting back up, I even deleted it and downloaded back again. I’m afraid I will have to set up my profile all over again after more than 50 weeks working out.
Awesome workout plans that can be done in less than 20 minutes or 7 minutes to get the exact benefits needed with a gym membership!
Not user friendly 3/5
It has been a year now. The app is very effective for fat cutting. I use it for my cutting phase. If you want to build muscle, do weight training instead.
I have been training with this app for almost a year now. The training program is undoubtedly tough but very effective. And the result is real. However, the app itself is not very intuitive, so you have to learn all the moves and techniques before doing a workout. Otherwise, you have to interupt the session and go back to view the videos. Another downside is that the Couch 4.0 is a little easier. It does not push you to the limit as it used to do. It is getting boring after the changes. I love the God workouts better.
Good app for busy people 5/5
Get the coach, it is a bit pricey but very good if you don’t have the time to drive to the gym. Any place great for doing the workouts, I do most on my garage or outside porch. The results are noticeable in short period of time you will see your body changing, but the most important thing about doing all the workouts as they recommend is one gets in a very good shape really fast. Keep up the good work and please develop the app for Apple Watch.
