Great but a lot of glitches 3/5
I want, so badly, to give this app five stars.
I love that I can build out my own workouts it choose from a ton of different preset workouts.
I love that there are visual examples and explanations of most workout types.
I hate how glitchy it is when it comes to syncing with my apple watch. I'm continually having problems getting my workouts to sync to all the portions of the app. Super frustrating.
Annoying bug 2/5
This is a great app that’s marred by a really annoying bug. I use the watch version in guided mode and have set up a few workouts. Every so often (and it’s not infrequently) I’ll start a workout and realize that the first set is taking way too long. Check the timer and see that it hasn’t moved. I try to end the workout but only have the option to pause. I uninstall the app from the watch and reinstall and we’re back to normal. This would be a 5-star app if it were reliable but, as it is, it’s too much of a pain. Last thing I need when I’m doing my morning session is to spend time futzing with my watch.
Love it!! 5/5
Great app! Love how it’s linked to my Apple Health. Workouts at intense and you feel it!!
Great app but settings change all the time 3/5
I will consider changing my rating because I love the app but you all change the settings all the time, special in the 3D Touch on the Apple Watch. Can you all stick to one setting?
Can’t paste password 2/5
I use a password manager. I can’t paste my password into the password field. I can’t contact their support because the required captcha on their website doesn’t show an image even after reloading several times. I just deleted it. Meh.
Love this app! Very useful and love the auto sense!
Seems ok 3/5
Let’s give it a try
Watch app has been buggy since update 4/5
I’ve been the app for about a year now, and have been loving it. The watch app works great in general, but I’ve noticed that it has been buggy lately. Each time I open it or finish a workout, I see an error message at the top (which I’ve never seen before) that there are logged workouts that need to be saved. Even when tapping to save, it seems to get stuck in a loop. When checking the app on the phone, it seems to double or triple log some of the workouts.
Other than the new bug, I love it!!
Ok but not perfect 3/5
Doesn’t really catch ever rep. Sometimes it’s stays in resting not counting even one
Wonderful work 5/5
Great app with the Apple Watch offer plenty of work out options.
Ugh. Still doesn't work well 2/5
Developers more interested in defending their concept than listening to users. The inability to disconnect "learning" and auto-switch sets is just stupid. The auto switch is so buggy that it's infuriating but the learning function is useful for the free form.
And the fact that it switches sets after such a short gap is ludicrous. They say it's 5 seconds but in use it is maybe 2. It doesn't take 5 seconds to turn around when doing walking lunges but it ends the set when I'm not even halfway turned around. I've reported and waited but nothing changes. Had I not no that a year of premium I'd have left.
I will say they do have an excellent selection of the exercises and the workout builder is very good. It shouldn't be so easy to delete a workout on the main page without a confirmation though.
Amazing App 5/5
I love this app.. it tracks everything and love the free mode where ü can tell the app want ü’re doing...I love the filters where it ü’re walking around it doesn’t count towards ür workout....definitely a must buy if ü’re trying to get back in shape or just want to keep track of progress for PR’s...
Can’t sign up 1/5
Doesn’t let me sign up no matter what option I go for.
I don’t have sign up problems with other workout apps so I’m just going to use one of those instead.
Love it! 5/5
Yes I love it because it keeps me moving!
By Guy Baker Stuart
Wish I didn’t have to pay for Apple Watch use
So buggy it is unusable 1/5
I tried desperately to like this but is just not usable. It logs reps when still. It misses reps when active, it crashes constantly. I tried to ask for a refund and support was completely unhelpful.
Good idea, ends up distracting you from your workout so ultimately pretty useless.
I love this app to keep up with my workouts reps.
Doesn’t sync with Apple Watch 1/5
What’s the point of this app if you can’t get it to sync with the Apple Watch, on a consistent basis. Terrible interface, terrible experience. Tell me exactly why I shouldn’t delete this. It’s garbage
Fake sets! Please fix!!!!!!!!!!! 4/5
I’m having a problem where my Apple Watch will give me an error from the app saying that logs cannot be transferred to the cloud because of server issues. In addition, the app on my phone is creating extra sets that I never did and I had to manually delete them. Please look into this I am a paying customer thank you.
Not reliable 3/5
Interrupts music and my entire workout is missing. Glitchy and unreliable. Have to log after every workout is not realistic for me
Not Easily Impressed 5/5
Great app! Actually recognized my pushups and gave an accurate count.
Amazing motion tracking...but that’s it. 3/5
This is a good app for tracking your motion and recognition of exercises. It’s so nice to not have to keep logging info during a workout but unfortunately the convenience stops there. Unfortunately it’s not 100% accurate and usually misses a rep in the beginning and at the end. Unfortunately there is room for improvement for editing exercises from the watch, it is cumbersome to keep fixing the auto log and there’s no way to bulk update or go back a set. The way the app works it’s very easy to accidentally log a set and you have to go back and delete them and re-add them. If this could get cleaned up it would be easier to use the auto log feature
The worst part of the app is the guided workouts. They have no guide without using the internet to go to a website that explains them but it would be easier to google it at that point. No instructions transfer to the app or the watch and it really makes the app harder to use for an entire workout. They seem to have ignored a lot of the guidance so you already need to know what you’re doing before getting into this app.
Lost data 3/5
Great app to track your workout, but whenever there’s an update app tends to lose your data.
Excellent Product 4/5
I have been using this product now for 4 months. I think this app is top-notch in such a crowded market. It has contributed to me gaining at least 5 pounds of muscle.
Things I would like to see added:
-A feature within guided mode which counts within the last couple of reps in the set telling you encouraging words to help finish your set.
-A button shortcut to pause the workout. Or Siri command to pause the workout.
-A section to write notes for the workout. Guided or Freemode.
-In Guided Mode if I change the weight of the first set default that new weight for the rest of the sets for that exercise.
I will probably have more ideas very soon.
Things I’ve had an issue with:
-almost every workout it keeps telling me to purchase or restore my purchase even though I bought the annual membership. Each time it does this, I have to keep uninstalling and installing the app to use guided mode. This is frustrating because I have to keep teaching the app my motions and weight synced.
Other than that it’s working great. Maybe add an option to purchase this app for a one time fee charge like 99.99; I don’t know offer something reasonable.
Best app ever 5/5
By God Miguel
Love this app! Videos are great! Helps out a lot for beginners!
Good app 3/5
The idea is there... still a lot of kinks to workout. I have a lot of hope... Just need to fix a few things!
App doesn’t upgrade on Apple Watch 1/5
I thought this app was gonna be awesome at first.. After I began to use for a few exercises it said I needed to upgrade to premium.. I did and the app never synced the upgrade and gave an error msg in settings when trying to sync to iPhone.. Paid $4.99 for nothing and never got any help from the developer or Apple!!! You guys need to fix or get rid of this app..
I spent a few hours setting everything up. Then I went to the gym opened my watch and started a routine. Guess what? Despite all the advertising that only works if you pay the monthly premium fee. So it’s completely useless and less you want to spend a monthly fee.
Could be great 1/5
Great idea that was not realized!
I can use the workouts if using them on my phone, but using them through my watch requires a payment plan! No thanks.
Apple Watch support 1/5
In order to do a guided workout on your Apple Watch, you have to buy premium. Otherwise it’s a good app.
Very good but not all features enable 2/5
This app does a very good job at detecting exercise. It allows you to have eight exercises but you only have three.
I lowered my rating because I do not like renting software. The app is not very useful without renting the software.
I am currently looking for another app that does not require renting. I am willing to pay but not forever.
I have to use pushups and jumping jacks to track my abdominal exercise. They will not allow you to rename and you can only have three new exercises.
I only track 6 to 7 exercises this is not worth a monthly fee.
This is one of the coolest workout apps for weight training i have ever used! 5/5
I tried this at the gym for the first time yesterday and after training it for a motion it was was pretty good at remembering and identifying the workout each following set. I have also been looking for a good app to record calories burnt during weight training and this works better than the open workout i was using with the watch’s built in workout app.
I have only used this one time, I’m not sure how it will work with legs but either way manually logging was also simple. So in my opinion a pretty solid app.
Best Workout App- End of Discussion 3/5
By Mr. Vikk
Update 2: one bug was fixed and replaced with another. Now when I start a freeform workout from my Apple Watch, I can’t stop it once I’m done. The only option to pause. I can’t to power my watch down to stop the program from running. And of course the entire workout was recorded, so frustrating!
Update: I originally ranked this 5 stars but for the past few weeks I keep getting the same error that my logs weren't saved. Even after resetting the app, the same result occurs. I do not see an effective way to seek tech support and therefore must lower this app to 3 starts until this problem is fixed.
This is the Best Workout App for me; End of Discussion. I've been using this app since I got my Apple Watch about a month ago. I've used it twice a day everyday. It has learned my routine and has become more accurate with the rep count. I just open the app on my Apple Watch, start a season and it recognizes the exercise I'm doing and records the reps. It's that easy. You can't go wrong with this app. I tried the other apps but this app beat them by a mile and offered everything I needed for my workouts.
Great tracker 4/5
By Johnny B Films
Had issues- But it was the watch- not the app. Great tracker.
Worthless unless you upgrade to premium 1/5
Don’t plan on using this app with your Apple Watch unless you upgrade to premium. Tip to developer - just charge $29 for the app to begin with and don’t waste time luring people in.
So far the coolest app
Must Have App 5/5
By Exercise Chick
I've been using this app for over a year and I absolutely love it and could not workout without it. I've had a few issues with it but my issues were always resolved quickly.
It’s ok but could be much better 2/5
By Mighty Power
For starters voice recognition is really bad, writing it up it’s even worse.
It’s nice that you can go back to the iPhone application and fix the terminology, what I don’t understand is why you have to fix it every single time over and over again, so when you go back to the same exercise it doesn’t recognize it, you need to go back on the phone and fit it again the next time you use it.
I’m still not happy with your software..
Here are a few other things I’m noticing.
If you do an exercise with your left arm and then you do the same exercise with your wife on it doesn’t know that it’s doing the same exercise because of quiet it’s not moving the left arm. For example if you were doing a Curl to press with your left arm maybe the next step would be to ask if you’re going to do the same with the right arm.. not being able to do single sides exercises may be a problem for certain exercises.
It does not track exercises like mountain climbers which are heavy and caloric use but it doesn’t have any arm movement because all of the most movement is in the core and in the legs..
Do you above it’s kind of actually understandable what I don’t understand is how it’s not able to track the difference between military presses and chest presses or neutral grip dumbbell presses vs smith machine press, or regular flat bench flies versus inclined flies, or dumbbell press versus smith machine press, you would think he would because the movement using dumbbells has to be different then the movement as precise as the one from a Bar
This application may be good for beginners that may have no idea of what they’re doing so if they’re following exercises may be OK, but if you’re trying to enter your own exercises I will think again.
Latest update fixed a lot! (Updated review) 4/5
The latest update really fixed a lot of crashes and bugs. The app is looking very promising again!
If activity notifications is on and you complete a goal during a workout, it can still crash the app. So that's worth turning off beforehand. But unlike the last build where it crashed all the time, this version is WAY more stable. Great job on the fixes!
Original 5 star review below:
This app does everything I want it to. It keeps track of my movements, and I can easily log reps and weight. The auto detection learns quickly and is very accurate so far! And the heart rate tracker seems accurate too.
I also mostly use the Apple Watch app to log everything. No crashes so far, AND it updates my activity rings when I finish a workout.
I also love the automatic "rest time" feature! That way I don't have to start a manual timer in between sets.
Great app! Worth going to premium!
AMAZING APP!! 5/5
Best Application I have used thus far!
NO WHERE IT SAYS YOU HAVE TO..... 1/5
NO WHERE IT SAYS YOU HAVE TO pay for free workouts on the new Apple Watch series 3.
Defeats the purpose of having the new Apple Watch series 3. The free works that you can do using the iPhone app, you CANNOT do using the Apple Watch series 3.
It asks you to sign up for a membership while using a free workout. I was told by the developers that it is working as designed. I found that out after getting to the gym and leaving my phone home. Grrrr
The devs are not quite on the nice side...extremely rude.
Not great for iWatch 1/5
I got this app to use with my iWatch but you have to pay a subscription for this. I would pay a one time fee but not a subscription because this app isn’t providing me with anything else.
Amazing app 5/5
I have been looking for wanting to create an all like this for a long long long time. Just amazing and so many possibilities where they can take this. I wish Apple acquires them and make this at the core of Apple Health
Sorry forgot your name of the App 5/5
By Mya Kay Ford.
This app is the best thing in the world!!!❤️👩❤️👩
Very upset that a 10 dollar app now requires a subscription! refund!!
Looks nice to start 2/5
Thought I would download this to give it a try, but in order to use the guided workout option on the Apple Watch, you have to upgrade to a subscription based Premium version. I’m not against paying money for apps, but I only do one time purchases. There should be an option for a one time payment. I don’t see the point in subscribing if all I want to do is use my Apple Watch. I’ll give the free part a shot though.
Very good app for adding my weights to ring 5/5
You can use the preset workout programs. You can make your workout program. It all transfers over to the app when you sync it. Your workouts make or create on your iPhone and then you transfer it to your watch. I read through and to really benefit from what this app and you really need to purchase the premium piece of the app. It’s cheaper to purchase a year for $30 rather than paying for 99 a month which is around $60 here. Just started three days ago with this program you need to get from Milyer with it or First work out whether it was a little challenging. You can go to track your reps on some of the exercises. Having used freestyle yes. With the only problem I’m fine is that it will frequently while I’m setting up work out just shut down on me. That’s very bad. To work around that I have been saving my work out frequently as I making it every time I put a newExercise and I automatically save it after quickly. That way I won’t lose that exercise. I’ll see what I mean. That needs to be corrected. Otherwise my first workout went pretty well. I’ll let you know. I like it a lot so far.
Great tracking App 5/5
Best app I’ve seen so far...!
This app is crap. 1/5
By JJ’s Man
Installed to my Apple Watch. Started my workout. It won’t count any calf raises or count all of my leg presses. Touching the face to try and correct the miscounting just makes it jump to the next set. Really? That’s super dumb. You can’t go back. You can’t fix a counting error. So I’m now on my third set of leg extensions when I haven’t even started the first set. Total aggravating garbage. Not ready for prime time. Deleted 10 minutes into my workout. Good riddance.
