Not easy to do - easy to stick with. 5/5
These workouts are not for the weak! As I am starting out as a couch potato I needed something challenging but something that wouldn’t scare me off. Freeletics has done just that. I no longer dread working out and actually look forward to my workout days.
Best fitness app! 5/5
I’ve tried a lot of apps. But Freeletics is the greatest. First I did Explosive Strength journey and made me really shredded, then Hybrid strength to comunes Bodyweight training with weights and now I am doing Barbell Gain journey and has been awesome it puts me lean muscle. Really good app!
Perfect for travel 5/5
For my work I travel a lot and some hotels don’t have gyms. This app is the perfect way to still get that workout in even if you don’t have anything but the space in your hotel room
Almost There!! 4/5
For those of us who travel for a living and spend time in hotel gyms, dumbbells workouts are the standard choice.
If your developers can incorporate a Dumbbell Gains journeys (as an option to the Barbell Gain), this would most certainly be a 5-star app! Otherwise, keep up the good work!
“Free” letics 1/5
If your app isn’t free, don’t call it free.
Update: They just replied to me with instructions on how to use the free part of the app. I understand how the app works and I understand that you sometimes need to make a profit. However, if the majority of your app is not free, don’t put free in the name of your app. Partially free is not free, so the marketing of the app shouldn’t revolve around it being free. Instead, advertise the features and convince consumers it is worth their money.
False advertisement 1/5
My favorite thing in this world is getting an ad for something that says free, free is in the title, it should be free to at least try right? but guess what, The cheapest thing they have is $50 to use this app, there’s nothing free about it
Restart phone if Watch app is missing 5/5
By The Yonghy Bonghy Bo
When I installed this app, there seemed to be no HealthKit integration and no Watch app. But after restarting the phone, both showed up. The app works well now.
It’s not free 1/5
By IT IS NOT FREEEEEEEE
I get so annoyed with all these fitness apps that I can’t afford. Then I see this app and I assume it’s free but then it’s just not. They should change the name and stop misleading people.
Can't combine bodyweight and weightlifting routines 4/5
It's great that I can just follow the exercises without spending any energy on planning it.
The app has weight lifting programs now as well. I very much enjoy weightlifting. But my schedule allows me to go to the gym only once or twice a week. For the weekly plan I'd like to have two/three days bodyweight exercises and 1/2 days weightlifting exercises.
The -1 star is for the obnoxious social features.
Great 1 on 1 training 5/5
Done the app training and seen results.
I used this app for core strengthening, the result was amazing, the level of energy release, overall body strength were among the benefit I got during 8 weeks of training.
By The COC reviwer
It says FREE workout
Bro I swear it costs money hey,a lot of it
And the “coaching program” is trust me, a rip off!!! I bought it even though it lied to me and misadvertised
This is a pure rip off
Trust me,don’t waste ur time with this app
Awesome App!! 5/5
I am so happy with this app. All the excesises, the diet is perfect for me!
how can you call the app freeletics when once you login and stuff have to pay to get your training and as consumer this is misleading information
My idea sounds lame but could be super helpful 4/5
A To Do list after the cool down. I’m constantly forgetting to do things after the work out. I’ve even written it down, worked out, and then completely forgotten about my list. Or maybe you want to meditate or something afterand it’s just nice and seamless if it’s all in the app. Just an idea.
They call it FREElitics and it’s not even free. 2/5
That’s just messed up. I mean there are people who can’t afford stuff like that. And I’m not trying to sound like a choosing beggar but, I’m going to be honest, I’m 13 and obese and trying to lose weight and this seems like a great idea. I just wish I could afford it.
It’s good but 3/5
This app is amazing. The thing is though if you were to not pay for the coach there is basically nothing
Not good for beginner 2/5
1) you are not introducing a new exercise or position but just throw in there. During the drill I either have to stop and check out the video of risk doing it wrong and with that injury. Same in cool down. Also there is not way in the app to give feedback to the “coach” which would be the obvious things to say. Feedback on exercise cannot be given if they are Ort of the cool down.
2) money back guarantee: I just ask money back for the Nutrition app and got a weiter reply that I need to email Apple.
Good Potential, but you need to try harder
I’ve lost 20 pounds of fat now 🙌🏾🙌🏾 5/5
I’ve been using this app for the past 6 months and I’m honestly happy to say that this is the best shape I’ve ever been in. I look in the mirror and I’m just happy with what I see. I’ve still got a ways to go but with this app along with eating clean this is the most progress I’ve made.
Now there’s a couple things. This app is for if you’re trying to get toned/lean. Don’t expect to become a body builder using this app. You will however notice yourself getting meaner, more athletic build, more vascular, etc. What I would do sometimes if I was looking to gain muscle would be to use this app in the morning then finish up with light weightlifting at the gym. But if you don’t care about losing muscle don’t worry about that.
The other big thing is how important diet is. I’ve been trying to lose weight for a long time, and it wasn’t until 6 months ago that i got consistent with eating clean and saw all the progress that I’m seeing now. But eating clean I mean I just ate stuff that was natural (chicken, rice, eggs, pasta, fruits, veggies). I still indulged every now and then, it was 80% healthy stuff, 20% whatever I wanted).
True permanent change doesn’t happen overnight. If you eat clean, use this app, and just be overall patient you’ll see results.
Not Free 1/5
By pu$$y cronCH
I think this app would probably be good? I’m not going to pay $90 for a meal plan and exercise tips, feel free if you lack the self discipline to eat right and go on a jog maybe twice a week. I think the app has an interesting and friendly interface but I just don’t think it’s necessary. I will give the app 1 star because I’m not mean, I just don’t like how opaque the name is “Freeletics”. Nothing about the app is free, sorry.
Very helpful 5/5
I been using this for a month now and I definitely feel improvements. I do AT LEAST one work out session a day and you must be really consistent with it if you really want to see improvement. I just use the free work out sessions and they do just fine. But if you want to go beyond then feel free to get a subscription. If free workout works then im very sure getting premium will help you out even more.
Great, but Still Room to Grow 4/5
This app is very well done. I simply have a few nitpicks that would be amazing if they added to the app.
1) Integration with Apple Music. They have integration with Spotify Premium but I wish they would add native support for Apple Music.
2) Stretching Workouts. Stretching & Flexibility is a vital component of being an overall athlete and so having at least some workouts that only trained you in these aspects would be amazing.
3) Better integration with Apple Watch. Currently the app will “write” how many calories we burn using algorithms, however I wish they could add the feature where it could talk with the Apple Watch so that it can read how many calories we actually burned. The Apple Watch could give more accurate information and with partnering with Apple they could even improve Apple’s technology.
Changed my lifestyle! 5/5
I honestly swear by this app, during freshman year I gained a lot of weight and doing a plan of my choice really helped me lose the weight and get shredded! This app is very efficient and very personalized to whomever is using it. You can leave feedback for workouts which I think is amazing and the overall setup is very accessible. I’d recommend this to anyone! The food plan also really helped.
Excercises are good but app is poor 2/5
The feedback should be per exercise not per train. I have some difficult to perform some exercises and need more time for others but the platform doesn’t learn that. Really poor tech
Fix your app 1/5
The app will not let me disable runs/sprints because the button is layered underneath the start now button. So frustrating.
Stole my money 1/5
By An Enraged Customer
I paid 35 dollars for a subscription but when I try to use the app it just keeps telling me to buy a subscription no matter what I do! I feel scammed 😡
Challenging but doable 5/5
Have been exercising by myself for a while mainly doing bodyweight exercises. Was looking for something challenging but doable. This definitely meets the ticket. Love that you can give feedback about whether the experience is too easy or difficult or just right. I cannot recommend this more highly. Wish that I had started this sooner instead of just being stuck in the same old rut!
Great app but...... 3/5
By شاب مسلم
Why do I need to download each video clip for each exercise? Why not stream those videos! It would be a much faster experience
Awesome Platform, help with surfing. 5/5
This has helped me in so many ways in and out of the water!! I’d recommend this to anyone wanting to better there selves.
best app ever - never had such a body before 😊 5/5
I downloaded it first time more than 2 years ago, never took it serious because I thought “it can’t work without weights”. Now I’m using it every day since 7 months - never wanna miss it. I feel much more satisfied in my whole life and have the best body I ever had - I’m 38 years old. Big compliments from my side also to the freeletics team also for a permanently improvement of the app 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼
Very Good App 5/5
The app is organized and easy to use, and the workouts are nice. A wide variety of the workouts are available, even without purchasing a subscription. It’s nice how if you cannot perform an exercise in a workout, the app can tell you what exercise to replace it with.
It’s a waste of time 1/5
The worst app I ever try. Don’t waste your money it is make non sense to buy this.
Beware the Apple Watch App! 3/5
I recently subscribed to Freeletics, and love what it offers. That said, the Apple Watch app is a huge problem. When it runs (which, it turns out, it will do even if not triggered on the AW itself), it completely throws off the Move ring for the day. The first time I used it, I did a 25 minute workout, starting with about 25 calories on my Move Ring. I ended with about 940. Same thing happened this morning (with slightly lower numbers)...and this time I didn't even open the app on the watch...I used the AW's own HIIT tracker. I emailed Freeletics, and this is what they had to say:
"In the fitness community, calories are always a main topic of discussion. However, calorie counting might not be the ideal approach. Please keep in mind, calories from different foods are not always the same. The calculation of the calories you consume and burn might not be totally accurate depending on your metabolism. Calorie counting can also lead to an unhealthy relationship with food.
At the end of the day, what matters most is maintaining a healthy and nutritious diet as well as being active. For this reason we encourage counting personal bests, burpees, and how many pieces of fresh fruit and vegetables you eat every day. Not calories.
For this reason we do not support any calorie counting functions on your device so most likely it won't be accurate. Sincere apologies for any inconveniences."
While I appreciate their philosophy (and I agree with it), it disregards that many (most?) of us use the Move ring to get an idea of how much movement serves us in the day to day -- not to simply count calories. Their response completely disregards this concern.
Thus, the three star review.
I'd love to see this fixed.
It’s ok 2/5
It’s been ok but you don’t have any options to sub out workouts or skip any portion of the workout or the rests. They also assign you a weight for the lifting part and you can’t change it so it thinks I’m lifting at a level I am not. It’s definitely a computer running the show.
Okay so...this os a good app and O can see where it can be useful.
The name makes it have a vibe of something it is not though! There is nothing free on this app beyond seeing some videos of others doing a basic exercise. Something mind you, you can find on youtube.
First impressions was I really liked it.
After actually you know using the app and exercising with it..yeah...I uninstalled it.
If you going to try to reach out to all groups of people on a free level make it so you know actual advice is being given or shared as a community or something. Get a forum, or something.
Rated brutally for the deceit, but aesthetics and the options available do give it at least something.
So far so good, minor tweaks 4/5
Thank you for such a great app, I’ve just started to use it and so far I’m enjoying it. A few things I’d love to see
1. Fully independent watch app
2. Integration with Apple Activities - this needs some work. For one, I would like a whole day’s training to just count as 1 workout, or at least have an option in the app to choose that for those that want it. I would also like to see general improvements with this. My workouts often say they are only 1-2 seconds, despite taking well over that time.
3. Autocomplete on runs should stop the activity at the set distance, I’m not sure why it’s required that I click “complete” - especially if someone isn’t holding the phone in their hand, this leads to highly inaccurate times.
This app has improved tremendously and now has an Apple Watch app 5/5
Just... such incredible improvements. Good job Freeletics team! One feature I would like is the ability to take out specific exercises from the coach generated drills. My knee is about to explode every time I try to do a pistol squat, it’s fine with other leg exercises so I don’t want to add an injury to the equation, but just taking out the one specific exercise would solve that issue
Definitely the greatest workout app around! I’ve tried other apps to help me stay motivated, but this one has the best variety of workouts.
Tighten up 5/5
I’ve been down on the count for a few years. This app along with the running add on help you get back to where you want to be in a way. Especially after torn ligaments in my ankle and my core getting so weak my lower back is wrecked. I’m 6’5 190lbs and active daily yet I need to get back when I was 8 years ago. Get the app pay the additional and find a music work out app that may start with fit and end with radio to get those in your head workout jams!!
Antes iba al gimnasio a realizar mi rutina pero desde que tengo freeletics ya no lo necesita. Me ayuda a mantenerme en forma y los ejercicios vienen bien explicados con el video.
Excelente idea de ponerse retos personales.
Algo que me encantaría es poder controlar para al siguiente ejercicio por medio de voz con Siri o Alexa. Me da la sensación de que se corta cuando debo pasar de ejercicio.
Awkward user experience 2/5
The app is not intuitive as it could be. Sometimes I want to start an exercise over (tap back, swipe right) but it only skips to the next one. I also can’t repeat a set in case I want to add more time. So sometimes I finish my workout in 20min and have more time but then need to choose individual exercises versus start the rep again. I also don’t understand the ‘coach’. Other than just setting up the exercises, what other value does it have? I’m still figuring out this tool but so far I’m mixed.
So fit wie nie mit 45 5/5
Ich nutze Freeletics seit >4 Jahren - mal mehr, mal weniger. Derzeit gerade wieder mehr... und ich fühle mich fitter als mit 20, obwohl ich immer viel Sport getrieben habe!
I want to 5* this so bad 3/5
But I can’t. My number one and only complaint is that I cannot run the app if the Freeletics can’t see the internet. Being deployed in a “austere” location I am often subjected to limited to no internet or cellular connection. Without those, the app freezes or won’t load. I have had internet drop in the middle of a timed workout only to have my progress lost or I am forced to restart the workout, which loses my progress. The mental struggle is already real, little things like this get huge quickly.
This app would get 5 star for the ease of use, the natural flow of the workouts from week to week, the highly customizable and hassle free setup from one week to the next.
Fix it so we can use this app 100% offline. You are losing money, I have at least 5 other soldiers who won’t buy this because of the connectivity issues.
Best for committed out of shape 59yo 5/5
I broke my ankle. Previously, I walked 4 miles a day and thought that was enough. Going through PT and my own research, I realized that to age well, I needed to up my game. I tried this app first because it sounded so great. But, it didn’t seem to offer the 5 minute workouts that the others did. So I tried all of those. Doing 14 moves for 30 sec just didn’t seem to be moving me toward any goal. So I tried some of the more serious apps. They seemed geared for folks that could already do the burpees and perfect pushups. So I reviewed Freeletics again. This is so great!!! Perfect for me. No frills. Good guidance. Building upon what my current capabilities are. Thanks y’all
Not Worth It 1/5
By Samurai 7538
Free Letics is just another e-begging “athletic” app. Not worth your time if you’re a cheapskate like me.
It would help a lot to show the day of the week (and calendar day) in which a training was completed.
a lie 3/5
DO NOT call your app freeletics if you’re going to trick people into thinking it’s free and then make them pay 89.99. the whole appeal is that its a free training program when it’s not. the app itself is a good idea but you need to change the name.
Buggy if no update 4/5
By Zentangle czt26
It's a great app overall, and I've written another review for that, but I forgot to do the last update and suddenly, in the middle of a workout, I can no longer click or swipe forward to progress and had to start all over, screwing my times tenfold. Just one update. Rather dissapointing.
Steve Farmer 5/5
You have to challenge yourself to follow the workout with correct technique until you have to modify. You will be sore. That means it’s making a difference.
