Won’t let me back on track 2/5
I accidentally forgot to close out a workout on the app my cool down. It moved the unfinished workout to today. Now I can’t get a reset to finish the intended workout today.
Terrible updates and horrible customer support 1/5
I’ve been using the paid version of the app literally every single day for the past 18 months and was a strong promoter/advocate of the app.
Unfortunately their product decisions have been terrible. The new training view is not at all user friendly and extremely restrictive.
To avoid such UX disaster I was using the old, simpler, better version.
It results that the app changes my configuration/settings and, to my surprise, they tell me that to change it back, I have to change to the new training view.
Already in the lookout for a new workout app that takes better product decisions and better care of their customers.
Great app! 5/5
By Andres Bohorquez
I’ve tried different work-out at home apps and by far I find this one the most useful, fairly price for the yearly membership, set it and go. Being able to give honest feedback after work outs so that the next work out can be challenging/easier I think is the best feature.
I wish that for the daily recaps, you could choose and customize what you could share via social media. There are days I do 150 push-ups or 50 burpees after 25 jumping burpees and that’s a big achievement, yet the daily recap that I can share shows I made 50 jumping jacks lol; yes I did those but they aren’t that big of a deal as doing 150 push-ups or so many burpees 😂
I’d love a feature to customize that! That would be the cherry on top!🍒
Freeletics stays Freeletics 3/5
For sure still one of the best home fitness apps! Amazing training, amazing community – just since I’m in horrible support. Requests won’t be answered or change nothing. Freeletics prefers to polish the logo, instead of improve the training algorithm like others do, or at least add some new exercises (I realized 5 new in 2 years) which would be much more important. It’s still a training app and not a design competition.
They steal your money 1/5
Be careful with this app. I cancelled my account last year after determining the app wasn’t for me. The app didn’t actually take the cancellation & I was charged for a renewal that I didn’t want. They refuse to refund because you have to cancel before renewal yet they never actually send you a renewal notice. It’s a huge scam to steal your money. The app itself is fine but buyer beware they don’t care anything about their customers & if you don’t like their product make sure to double/triple cancel so they don’t steal your money like they stole mine!!!
Edit: 7/7/20 - I stand by my review. They have dubious business practices where they do not inform you before processing your renewal. Beware if you try this app & I would recommend setting a calendar alert so you can cancel without penalty because they don’t care about their customers.
This is not free. 1/5
This is not free.
Freeletics rocks! 5/5
Freeletics has changed my approach to training. Love the coach. Love the advanced exercises even if I struggled mightily to complete them sometimes. But just love the fact that the app pushes me to do better every day. Well done Freeletics!!
Gute Ergebnisse sind vorprogrammiert 5/5
Was mir ein wenig fehlt:
Anfänger so wie ich brauchen eine bessere Anleitung um diese Workouts perfekt hinzubekommen. Man macht sie oftmals falsch, weil die Mobilität nicht vorhanden ist.
Es wäre mega cool wenn ihr zum Beispiel bei YouTube einen Chanel habt bei dem ihr erklärt, welche Mobilitätsübungen man machen muss um eure Workouts schneller mit der perfekten sauberen Bewegungsablauf auszuführen.
Manchmal habe ich mich gewundert, wenn ich eine härteres Workout Eingebe und es auf einmal leichter wird.
Ansonsten eine Super App, werde definitiv weitermachen und wer es nicht kennst sollte es versuchen um auch sein Maximum aus seinem Körper zu holen und diese Erfahrung zu erleben, dass das Leben leichter fällt.
Danke Freeletics 🦾
Refused a refund 1/5
I tried this for 12 weeks and decided to move on to something else. I made sure my subscription was cancelled in Apple’s subscriptions section. Unfortunately, they apparently don’t administer through Apple and I was charged anyway and then refused a refund (on the same day) because it’s against their “policy” to do so. It’s against my policy to work with companies with gotcha policies.
Over a year and many burpees later... 5/5
I’ve been using Freeletics steadily for a year. The scale says I’ve lost 23 pounds, but it’s more about inches than weight—I now need a completely new set of clothes, and have a new perspective on health.
Also, several reviews say you won’t “gain” muscle. Let’s be frank, you’ll get muscles you didn’t know you had, but you won’t get bulky, which is not the goal of this type of program. You will gain muscle as long as you are eating correctly and following an appropriate program.
My suggestion is similar to what others have stated: save progress in case of app crashes. Also, would it be possible to include the option for resistance bands with wall mounts and handles instead of free weights?
Careful with your Freeletics subscription 1/5
I found a deal online for a freeletics fitness program and decided to sign up. The exercises and kind of ok (they’re the same exercises all fitness programs offer - even the free ones). I checked the app to see if I had signed up for a subscription, so that I could cancel right away. There wasn’t a “cancel subscription” option, so I figured the fitness program I had signed up for was a 1 time deal - I thought I was all set then. But, just to be safe, I checked my subscriptions on my Iphone (under “manage subscription”) and freeletics was not there. Even small companies will show up under your subscription options - not freeletics. To my surprise I was charged $40 a few months later, even though they make it impossible to cancel and get a refund on recurring payments. You would think that a company trying to hide the “cancel subscription” button would make it easy to get a refund. NOPE! Never even got an email back from them. Let me make your life easier: don’t sign up. The exercises are the same you’ll see on youtube/instagram fitness accounts. I bet most of the revenue from this shady company comes from unwanted/unaware payments that are not refundable.
Takes your money (no refunds) 1/5
I signed up for it. Didn't use it much. Cool. When I looked on my iPhone to make sure I cancelled the auto renewal, it showed that I didn't have it turned on. Magically I was charged because I didn't go into the desktop account and cancel from there. Same day I asked to cancel and a refund for the auto renewal. Immediately they said they couldn't refund because of their "policies". Such BS. Such a horrible customer experience. Did you not think that maybe now wasn't the right time for me to try? Maybe I would come back later? I won't be coming back now. And will never recommend this to anyone.
NOT FREE AT ALL. CHANGE THE NAME! 1/5
This app tricks you into entering your personal info then pulls the bait n switch asking to subscribe first. Change the name it’s misleading!
Tried Everything Else 5/5
I’ve tried everything else to get into “working out” and nothing seemed to stick. I just finished my first journey and I’m seriously in love! I tell everyone about this app and wish I would have found it sooner!
Paying member app constantly freezes 1/5
I’ve reported this ha,f a dozen times but no fix and no outreach to try to diagnose. App freezes in the middle of multi round exercises so you have to start over and if it’s timed it messes up your times. Super frustrating.
Compatibilidad completa con Apple Watch. 5/5
By MSG TENOR
El app es muy bueno para todo tipo de ejercicio, incluso es compatible con el Apple Watch, pero he notado que cuando reproduzco música y termino una rutina, se regresa a la app de música. Sería bueno que se mantuviera dentro de la app de Freeletics aunque termine una rutina para iniciar otra. También podrían incluir un control para reproducir la música dentro de la app.
Sounded like amazing app but not 1/5
I had high hopes for this app but after I put in all my info and go to start a workout it says it loading but only thing that pops up is a ad to get the subscription and it never shows me my workout.
Has potential 3/5
App has great design, clean interface and really well done video tutorials but without some kind of free trial to see what I would be paying for there’s no way I would just drop $35 for three months of subscription. Also found it annoying that immediately when you open the app for the first time it asks you to buy the subscription, who would do that without even trying the app.
Buggy app, crashes - freezes. 1/5
App crashes on IPad, losing all you progress. No way to report bugs on app or website. Reporting function splits all your exercises into separate workouts so Strava and other platforms get spammed with 19 workouts when I do one and it syncs. No way to contact technical support. No way to get a refund.
Terrible coach, NO NUTRITION ADVICE 1/5
First of all if you buy the nutrition plan along with the workout coach, THERE IS NO NUTRITION ADVICE WHATSOEVER. Next, the coach is not smart AT ALL! It had me do leg day every day of the week with exercises that made me lose weight when I said I did not want to. Terrible app, does not suit your needs, I’m telling you DO NOT BUY!
Good Variety and Coaching 4/5
I have enjoyed this app for exercising without a gym with HIIT workouts (although weight training is available too). It gives you all kinds of options for how you want to get fit and to adjust the workout that day if you are feeling sore. Listen to their recommendations on rest and mark when you are feeling sore because the exercises are intense and you can get hurt if you push too hard or don’t have proper form.
Close to perfect 4/5
Been using the app since it came out years ago. It’s great and has evolved tremendously. Bugs right now: Apple ID sign in still not working, you get logged out if you open the app from a notification.
Best Bodyweight Training 5/5
This isn’t for wussy’s. Definitely need a lot of time, dedication, and commitment. Great results in 3 months.
Buen inicio 3/5
Buenas rutinas pero seria bueno poder verlo en otras pantallas y tener música
App is amazing, but missing Resistance Bands 4/5
The app has been really helpful and the programs are pretty solid. I definitely want to continue using it, but I also want to incorporate Resistance Bands into the training that they provide. You currently can choose Resistance Bands as part of the equipment you have available, but the database doesn’t really have anything outside of Assisted Pull-Ups.
If you guys could add this, it would add more versatility to your app.
Date issue 2/5
I can’t pass the final stage in other to start up a program because the date is not working. After selecting my date of birth, it still don’t get pass it. The date will not appear. What can I do about that.
Solid workouts, few improvements 4/5
Just did my first workout in years and it started me in a good place and got me panting and sweating. I look forward to it helping me reach my goals. Only thing I’d ask for is push notifications. I have not been working out for years because I am easily distracted and simply forget to workout. I’d love push notifications to remind me to work out so I don’t have to put those reminders in my calendar app or reminders app.
The Best! 5/5
I did Freeletics for a month last fall because I was getting bored and tired of the same boring runs and ab workouts. I was relatively active when I started Freeletics and wasn’t worried about losing weight or anything; I just wanted a new challenge!
At the end of that month, I had dropped a whole 10lbs and needed a whole new wardrobe because my clothes were too big. It was such a sweet surprise. Highly effective app with challenging workouts that keep things interesting!
Super awesome 4/5
Lots of options for training. Really useful
It’s like torture, but you get abs at the end. 5/5
Do you like submit your body to tortures not allowed by geneva convention? Do you like to torture your body? This is for you and it works.
This isn’t a review but a question. When I first downloaded this app 3+ years ago it was strictly body weight. Now I see it’s got weights mixed with running and body weight. This makes me curious if this is now more along the lines of CrossFit now.
Good but one flaw 5/5
By I don't care whatever996
I lost weight on this app, I’ve gotten stronger and I love it! But my biggest flaw is sometimes I forget my cool down which finished the workout. I get busy so the next day I see my workout is transferred to the next day and it’s only my cooldown. So it didn’t mark down the day I did the whole workout and if you dont finish it that day it ruins the cycle and head onto the next day which means you miss a workout. I hate this and I think if you already started a workout but by 12am you didn’t finish it should log in what you did that day because I like a cycle and logging in but now if I forget it says I didn’t do anythin and sets me back a day now.
Not really free 1/5
By Pin Headd
I wanted to get fit and have motivation over the Coronavirus break but it requires you to pay for a membership. Maybe I didn’t read. But why call it Freeletics when it isn’t free.
Vertí g fit 5/5
Love this App, easy to follow, Exercises are just right. I am a 59 almost 60 year women, and is hard to keep up with an exercise plan but this one is great
No permite probar la aplicación.. de entrada lo único que hace es recabar datos y después te quiere cobrar una suscripción.. desastrosa para eso cobren de una vez la aplicación y no una descarga gratis
Do you want to get fit? Do you want to be athletic ? Do you think you can handle torture not approved by the Geneva convention? This is for you!
DO NOT DOWNLOAD 1/5
This app made me loose muscle mass INCREDIBLY. Their exercises are neither good nor helpful. This app will only reduce your fitness. DO NOT DOWNLOAD
I am a medical practitioner
Cool app needs to work better in watch OS 3/5
Love the workouts specially in the situation we are going thru with quarantine.
I tried to use the Apple Watch versión but the workout recorded weird. It didn’t get the whole time I actually workout and it show as many tiny functional workouts. Also I am not even sure if I can use it without the phone. I don’t like that both apps don’t work at the same time like every other workout app.
watchOS app needs work. Make the app independent but also to work whenever you start a workout in the phone. Made sure the workouts are recorded correctly.
Stick to it and you will see results 5/5
Great for beginners to advance 👍😊
By knee grow papi
It says free in the name but wants you to pay up front. smh
Waste of money 1/5
By dojt do it
Bought the 50 membership and got zero nutrition on the app
Great app 4/5
I think the app is great and i really enjoy the workouts but i think it would be great if you would add an injury option. Last week i got my knee injured and I couldn’t do the workout because it had squat and when i asked for a new workout there was jumping so I couldn’t train.
Me encanta 5/5
Me encanta la forma en que está estructurado y que no solamente son ejercicios sino que te guían con meditaciones, lecturas y motivaciones
Save yourself the money and just do burpees on your own. I’m on day 17 and all the work is is beat your personal best burpees. In all of those days there’s been 0 back exercises, 0 neck exercises, 0 isolated arm exercises. Squats, burpees - everyday
and push ups, supermans every once a blue moon.
It’s so random I asked to see the 12 week program map and they replied that it’s day by day based on your “coach’s” recommendation. Of course the coach isn’t a real person.
The quality of app is nice. The interface is great. Just the program is devoid of any personal training program.
By Jason Rapatiy
They don’t tell you that the app cost a decent amount of money, the app looks kinda cool but I wouldn’t say $35 cool
Not free 1/5
Why is it called freeletics if it’s not free
Not bad! 4/5
This is actually not a bad workout app. I tried it once so far and I'm satisfied. I got played though when I thoughtI only had five sets but in actuality it was ten. 😓 Lol!
I feel like there are more than enough free workouts for me to do in order to not have to purchase the premium. Just improve on the free ones! 🤷🏾♀️
Great app but need more variety 4/5
Been using this app every day for about a year. The workouts are TOUGH, even a year later. I love the reference video clips so you can check your form as you work out.
All I wish was that there were more variety. I’ve done several different plans, but it seems to just be the same core 30 or so workouts with some randomized training intervals added in.
Love it but keep updating it y’all
Please allow us to eliminate single exercises 3/5
Love this app but the inability to eliminate individual exercises essentially forces me to have off days. As I write this, the 2x20m lunge walk timer is going and I’m sitting here begging to allow me to eliminate it from my workouts. I’m in a small apartment. I have no idea what a meter looks like. Just allow me to remove it from my life forever.
