Error saving workouts 4/5
I use the “coach”, and like the workouts and clear instructions. But I always, almost always experience an error saving the workout after completion, which is immensely annoying. I think the problem occurs every time I am connected to WiFi. I change it to the cellular mode, and “fake” the workout (I don’t want to do the whole five sets all over again) and save it. Which is a huge waste of time because these workouts are timed. I am waiting for the bug fixes but it hasn’t happened for months I’ve been using the app.
Ok for a few months 3/5
By Med Phys
Pros. Nice workouts including strength, endurance, conditioning.
Limited workouts. Cannot customize workouts including reps or setting different weights between different sets.
Worst app ive ever used for fitness! 1/5
If i could give this app 0 stars for taking $15 from me and delivering a pile of trash i would.
Problems with the app: no back button if you tap next on an exercise you have no way of going backwards. Second problem: if you dont have a piece of equipment such as a large barbell it doesnt allow you to substitute exercises. Third issue for this whole “coaching program” you are paying for asside from the warmup its one weight exercise for the workout?! Are you kidding me? Squats with a bar repeat 3 times please give me $15. This app is such a scam!
Not up to par with bodyweight app 1/5
By joy noele
The gym app for Freeletics has a ways to go to hit the right target market IMO. From my preliminary use, it appears to be an all-or-nothing regime. Changing weights midway through a set (bc starting was too much) or not completing all reps in full lead me to either “Are you sure you want to give up?” or not record in the app what was actually completed.
Haven’t been able to make it through a complete a full workout without getting frustrated that it’s not flexible enough to accommodate a beginning regime on shared equipment. I’m not sure how many people have access to 2 barbells simultaneously for a full 15-30 minutes. To its credit, there is an option for “I only have 1 barbell”.
Same old 1/5
Same old app for years. Have not had any changes. Maybe it’s because their main focus is the bodyweight app.
Best app ever 5/5
Great app , simple very good progression of exercises. Highly recommended.
Great app that’s been abandoned 1/5
I loved this app but it has been completely abandoned and has not received any of the improvements that the Freeletics app has. Workouts that are not saved immediately are lost. You can’t manually enter or change times. You can’t manually mark a workout complete. You can’t look at details of a previous workout. If you forget to hit the next button during a workout between sets, you lose the ability to track time and get a star workout. If I could find any other app that provided an intelligent coach, I’d abandon this one completely.
Needs to be on par with body weight 3/5
I like the app but it needs the attention as
Body weight. New warm ups, new cool down. I used to recommend getting the coach for all the apps but stopped when I realized only body weight was priority. Wish the apps talked to each other too.
Cant view the videos 3/5
By Ms polish
I really like the app but The problem is I cant view some videos to see if my form is correct.
I have to go search it on youtube which defeats the purpose of the app.
Make it better 2/5
It hasnt been updated in a long time. Has a lot room to improve in user esperience.
The app is great but has one problem though 4/5
I’ve been using the coach plan for 5 weeks now and I’m really impressed with the results.
The only problem is though the app requires you to be connected to the internet to use it and I train in one of those gyms located in the underground space where you get almost no connection to the internet. Every time I finish the exercise I go upstairs to save the workout which is the reason for the 4 stars.
Don’t buy it! It doesn’t work! 1/5
Second time it happens to me! The gym app doesn’t work. I sent an email to them and it’s about 2 months and no solution! They advise me to use the bodyweight journey instead. It wasn’t my intention, since my plan was to combine gym and bodyweight. Don’t wast your money with something that won’t work.
I regret deeply buying it.
The support team is a joke! No support at all.
Many better apps out there. This one is just wanna your money at any costs. At least make the app works then I can use it!
14 day refund policy is deceptive 1/5
While the website lists a 14 day return policy online, if you buy the app through iTunes, you’re actually not eligible for the return. Completely deceptive that they make it seem that a refund is possible on the website when that is not true. I’m going to stop using this despite not getting a refund since apps like the Sweat app are way more holistic and user friendly
Gym could be better than the body weight app! 5/5
The Gym app has even greater potential than the body weight app, most especially given the combined benefits of free weight/HIIT training that’s noted in programs such as Crossfit. I’m confused as to why your developers aren’t giving this app the same attention that’s given the body weight app. I could be wrong, but If I’m reading the iTunes app page correctly, there hasn’t been an update within the past 6 months. A good starting point would be iPad compatibility and the addition of dumbbell workouts. Remember that older customers might benefit from free weight and strength training than the burpees, clapping pushups, high jumps, and sprints that are featured in your body weight app.
I suspect that the results of such an app improvement/update would certainly result in health improvements among your customers.
Please don’t neglect this app! Although your body weight app is very good, give the Gym app the constant attention that it deserves! Once the update is complete, 5-star is a certainty. Thanks for your hard work!
The best 5/5
Love how it tracks everything and adapts as you go. For a busy person it is totally worth the money
Good app but needs mute button. Please read this!!! 3/5
Good app but for some reason it still has no option to turn off all the audio. The Bodyweight version of Freeletics fixed this moths ago. Have to pause my headphones every time the app starts counting down to a new exercise. Just put in a mute button!
This has been going on for months. I hope someone reads this and makes the simple change!
Great App 5/5
Would love to see some calf and forearm workouts. Warm-ups specific to the days workout would also be great (like the Bodyweight app). Thanks and keep up the good work. Freeletics has changed my life forever 😍💪🏼🏃🏽♂️🏋🏽♂️🚣♀️⏱🇩🇴🇺🇸
Why there has been any updates 2/5
Helpful app for gym beginners 5/5
I used a combination of the Gym, Bodyweight, and Running apps from Freeletics to lose 30lbs in about 6 months last year. The apps are intuitive, help you build on your progress, and keep things interesting. I have subscribed for over 3 years and have been very happy with the updates, new workouts, and progress I’ve made. It really works and I recommend it to all my friends who are trying to get off the couch and back in shape.
NEEDED UPDATE 2/5
It is a good app. I use it because it come with the pack but it is not nearly as friendly as the Bodyweight app and can use updates.
By Dade Murphy (zerocool)
This app is awesome and the workouts are intense. I use this with the Bodyweight app. Would be cool if they were more connected.
Clearly an app made by tech geeks who know nothing about working out 2/5
This is an absolute waste of money. I have been working out consistently for years and I can say these are some of the worst plans I’ve seen. Even with “coach” subscription, there is very little content available on the app and it has a terrible user interface. Nothing is customizable and the algorithm for creating the “personalized plans” was clearly written by people who have never been to a gym.
Tough to cancel! 1/5
I’d turn back if I were you.
So much potential 4/5
The concept of having to pay one subscription for 3 apps is awesome, especially if you’re traveling and need to switch from one another. This app could be great but it’s definitely not yet. In my opinion it’s a 3 star app with a lot of potential, but I’ll still give you 4 for the idea behind it. Please, besides many other things, fix the video player and make it just like the one in the Bodyweight app. It’s SO annoying You’re probably making less money off this app but I believe it’s still worth improving. There are plenty of great running app but not that many Gym apps. Please keep improving it. I really don’t want to buy another app. Hope this review helps in some way. Good luck
Deleted - Requires Login 1/5
Deleted because it requires a login even to check out the app.
Does not connect to Apple Health 3/5
By Mars Lyrus
I love the app but since Apple offered the Health, it is important to have availability to connect sport apps to the health and the Gym app unfortunately does not offer this option.
By tall mn dad
Love it. Easy to use. I don’t have to think about what workout to do. I just need to show up and follow the workout. The workouts make me work too. Not too easy which is nice.
Great all-arounder 4/5
I have been telling people to use this app for ages. I love it and have had great progress in my personal fitness using it and the Coach function.
I would really like to see an Apple Watch version of it so I could be phone free for my workouts.
Couple things 2/5
Name is pretty stupid in that in missleads, “Free”letics? You’ve locked half the workouts, lock that name in a vault with whoever thought it up.
Second, it functions as an MVP practically. My first workout didn’t save, but my second workout saved three times, and I have no way of deleting it. Guess I gotta pay for a coach so they can fix it.
Weird login 2/5
Every time I go to login it says not fond and when I go to sign up it says already a account. I even copied and pasted it and it did the same thing. I don’t know if it is just me but not the best gym app
Not bad workout pushes me I’m new so I'm going slow but make it hurt is my motto
Stretching routine needs work 2/5
The stretching program is weak. Stretching exercises don’t really hit the muscles I worked.
Having a thorough stretching program, especially a nice program for off days would be awesome! I still use another app for that.
For some reason Coach gives me 3 upper body workouts in a week, which doesn’t make sense
There are no words for how frustrating this app is. Keeps preventing you from moving around to explore your program. Go back to repeat exercises you have skipped to check what was coming up. And the worst, you can't swap exercises so if a machine they want you to use is not available at your gym, too bad: no swaps.
Coach DOESN’T Know! 1/5
Okay, so “The Coach” clearly doesn’t sync between all of the Freeletics apps. I am trying to do 2 Days of the Gym & 2 Days of the Bodyweight each week to build muscle and become toned. “The Coach” doesn’t factor this in and put me on leg days back to back. ☠️
Also, the Gym app’s workouts are ridiculously time consuming. Who’s got time to workout in the gym for 2 hours?! Maybe if you’re under 24 years old and have no wife, no kids, no full-time job and play video games when you’re not working out...
Freeletics, please make your “Coach” smart enough for people who utilize all of your exercise apps and make the workouts shorter.
Variation ok, practicality not 2/5
Signed up for some variation, but these workouts are not practical to do at a gym, unless you enjoy looking like a jackass hogging bars and stations.
More updates needed. 1/5
This app feels forgotten but it keeps me on track with my workouts. So it doing its job. I’m stronger and in better shape. However, I feel like the app hasn’t change for > 2 years
Love it, but... 5/5
Love it and use it everyday. However, I wish I could skip warm up and stretching with one button, some nice I already memorized the exercises.
Terrible customer service 1/5
I decided to download freeletics about 4 months before I got married and the workouts were okay, Gave me some ideas but difficult to follow and keep track during the workouts. My biggest problem was I only wanted it for 6 months. I mean that’s what I chose to pay for...wrong! They were discreet with informing me that it’s an automatic renewal. Didn’t even send me an email that it was going to renew or warn me of the charge coming up, because that’s what scammers do. Their weasels that aren’t upfront or forthcoming on there conniving ways of getting people’s money. Since I wasn’t aware of the charge my card was over drafted and shut down. I requested a refund explaining what happened to my card the day I was charged and they said they were unable to give me a refund. I don’t believe it, I know they can, they just don’t want to. So now I’m stuck with this for another 6 months and I’m telling everyone don’t download freeletics. They have terrible customer service and you should take your business elsewhere.
Great app 5/5
Breaks it down, and keeps it simple.
Changed my life! 5/5
6 months, 18 lbs down, discovering every day what my body can do and mind can overcome! Thank you!
Review for Gym FREELETICS 5/5
Don’t buy 1/5
Don’t buy this app! Waste of money
This apps keeps me motivated 5/5
I use the app for tracking of weights and as a motivator
Good stuff 5/5
Awesome app. Love it
Pretty Good 5/5
Pretty good app!
Excellent workout app. Well worth the money 4/5
I love Freeletics, have been using it since it first came out and saw some amazing results with the body weight app. But weight training has always been my thing so I was super psyched when the gym app came out and now I have been using it for over a year.
I still find it challenging and I have continued to improve and get stronger and be closer to the body I always wanted.
Can't live without this app 5/5
By Warrior son
This app has became engrained in my daily routine. Great user experience and incentive
This program is quite challenging and well rounded.
