Not the TIU I know and love 1/5
By I wanna dance with somebody
This app isn’t great. It’s glitchy. It buffers. It shuts down. There are too many new trainers. I can’t keep track of them. They aren’t personable like K&k. Not enough of a warm up session on the studio workouts. The studio is cold and impersonal. I’m all about the beach workouts, which they are occasionally bringing to the studio.
TIU has changed a lot since I first joined in 2014, and this app shows me they have changed in a direction I don’t love. It doesn’t support the Tone It Up brand and experience. It makes things more difficult. I feel less connected to the community, less inspired to work out, less inclined to keep nutrition #1, less connected to K&K. I believe K&K are trying to please everyone, and run faster than they are able. So they bring in more and more options. Too many new trainers. Too many new workouts. Daily moves, videos, mashups, cardio, meditation. There isn’t enough time in the day for it. Thus, there is just TOO MUCH. It feels overwhelming. There are so many options I might as well just turn to the internet and mix and match my programs, instead of sticking with one program that was clear and easy to follow. I felt safe being a Tone it up girl because it was a simple program and I knew K&K were looking out for me. But no longer. There is simply too much and it’s more free form, and it’s like I have to build my own workouts (especially if I have to abort a studio class because I get kicked out, or there’s no video, or no audio, and it’s 5 am and my willingness to then create my own workout doesn’t exist, so I skip a workout). So, then, what’s the point of Tone it up? This app is a manifestation of the anxiety, isolation, and chaos I feel while interacting with the TIU of 2018.
The best part of being a Tone it up girl is that you still have your Instagram and Facebook communities, you still have your old nutrition plans, and you can still access your premium videos on their website, which I love.
If you are a TIU girl, pass on this app.
Add more TIU features! 3/5
By TIU allison
I only use the free version of the app and like it for workouts, but I would love more functionality that works with journaling and searching of the recipes. It would be awesome to not have to search through PDFs to find what I need (very clunky for the high cost of TIU Nutrition Plan) and search recipes by ingredients on-hand. Imagine the Blue Apron style recipe database meets in-app capability of the TIU paper journal and I think this app could be dynamite.
Love this app! A few more features would be great! 4/5
The only thing this app is missing in my book is the ability to save your favorite workouts somehow. Or at least bookmark them🤔 someday I would love to see postpartum friendly workouts for the babes who become moms 😂
Absolutely LOVE! 4/5
This app is amazing- it’s like going to a gym class, but at home! I have a newborn and a toddler so the good old days of going to the gym are long gone! I have already lost most of my pregnancy weight and am just thrilled with the quality of these workouts.
The only thing is that I wish you could pause live classes. I have a 2 month old and sometimes I have to tend to her if she starts fussing or needs a diaper change. I hate that I have to miss a small chunk of the workout. Also, for some reason, the app doesn’t record your workout when you do an on demand one instead of the live class. In fact, that portion of the app is a little glitchy in general. When I add my own workouts, it doesn’t record it either for some reason.
Hopefully these are just minor changes that can be fixed. Otherwise, I LOVE this app and will continue to use it!!
HALP (with A for assistance) 2/5
App force closes every time I try to start a video - whether on demand or in the studio :( I’m missing out! I have FOMO!!
Great App, but a few Glitches 4/5
The app is great and I love all of the workout videos, but occasionally the videos will have glitches. The screen will turn white, or will pause, but the audio still plays, or the video will play, but there won’t be any sound.
Glitchy. Great when it works. 2/5
By Can't Switch To Metric
I’m so frustrated because I love this app when it works, but way too often it doesn’t. I regularly cannot scroll through the daily moves - it will get stuck and won’t let me continue to scroll. In addition, when I take a class it will stop playing me a video and either give me a black or white screen. I will try to exit the class and renter and it will happen again. This same problem occurs with the On Demand section. In addition, it does not work well with mirroring on an Apple TV (all my other apps mirror perfectly but this app freezes all the time when I try to mirror it).
When the app functions perfectly I am SO happy. Having classes keeps me motivated and gets me out of bed. I’m so frustrated I bought a year subscription when it is such a rollercoaster of working and not working. I truly want this app to work consistently.
Love it! Customer service has helped very quickly when I need it!
Search feature needs improved in ‘On Demand’ 4/5
I love the app and the workouts, but I really wish the search feature in ‘On Demand’ would get improved. You get an error if you type in numbers, even though numbers are often in the workout titles (ex: 8 Min Legs and Booty) and sometimes videos just appear to be missing from ‘On Demand’ section all together. Today’s workout is ‘Beach Bombshell HIIT,’ but when I search that, only two videos are returned, neither which align with the workout video for today. The schedule feature doesn’t really work with my daily routine and it would be nice if there was a quick link to the videos that are scheduled for the day where you could access them easily; or, just improve the search feature. Thank you!
Worth every penny! 5/5
It’s like having a personal trainer in your phone! I love the variety of classes, both on the schedule and in the on demand section. So glad I decided to make the purchase!
I really want to like this app 3/5
This app is so buggy! I can’t skip to the next workout and have to constantly close the app and re open it just so I can see the next move and complete it.
Great Workouts & Great Trainers 4/5
This app is great! As a longtime TIU community member, I love that I can always count on TIU keeping things fresh with their workouts and this app doesn’t disappoint.
I’m the future, I’d love to see some classes that take place at the half hour mark. As a mom I have to workout whenever I get a chance and sometimes I can’t wait for the classes that start on the hour. I’d also like to request a way to save favorite workouts or be able to make my own schedule for the week by choosing On Demand workouts.
Keep up the great work TIU!!
Love the app and the community the things I wish would improve or have:
1. Classes to start every 30min and not every hour. Or shorter intervals if possible
2. Have the option to mark a video as favorite or “watch later” like youtube has. That way you don't have to be scrolling all the time but you could just go to the “favorite” list
3. The ability to configure your own calendar. Maybe start with the one studio TIU has and then be able to modify it and change classes
4. If you are a member you should be able to have access to the recipes from the app
I LOVE how convenient it is to work out. Over the memorial holiday weekend I was able to pull the app out on the boat in the middle of the lake to get my daily moves in. Now that’s the dream!
Thank you for making this so easy to use. I love the on demand feature letting me access any work out any time, anywhere.
Life changing!! So happy to be able to workout at home, with excellent guidance and motivation. And most of all, with my TIU girls that inspire me every day!! Xoxo
I love this App 5/5
The Studio App is GREAT for ladies who prefer to work out at home but still want to attend a classes. I’ve used workout DVDs for years, but those always feel prerecorded and become monotonous. The TIU trainers make it feel like an actual class, and you can chat with other girls taking the class. I also love that you can join a time-slotted class or use the On Demand workouts (same workouts, just no chatting with others in class) if you’re late or in between time slots. I could seriously go on. I love the TIU founders, trainers, and community, and the app makes it super convenient to take classes on my schedule.
TIU studio 5/5
By TIU Pam MN
I think the app is easy to work with and convenient for doing workouts at home.
Most of the equipment you need is a yoga mat and dumb bells or booty band. I personally like the workouts because they are quick and motivating. Plus seeing the workouts on the beach is a nice background too!
Love this app & community! 5/5
By Beth Combs
I love the TIU community, trainers and especially Kat & Karena! The app has awesome workouts and they are challenging but fun. It’s easy to schedule, use and you can connect to your tv/computer screen if you don’t want to use your phone.
My only issue with the app is I wish workouts were every 15 mins vs. 30 min for those of us with busy mornings.
Favorite workout app! 5/5
I absolutely love this app! I started their bikini series program 7 weeks postpartum & I love working out at home now! Especially with a newborn! It’s very easy to use. I can even view it on my tv using “screen mirroring” on my phone. The daily moves + studio classes are killer! I love that it tracks your classes so you can see what you’ve accomplished. I also love the TIU community chat! Nice to have support & feel the love from the TIU community :)
Love Love Love!! 5/5
Best way to start my day!!! Worth every penny! Whether you take a class in the studio or on demand it is guaranteed that you will feel amazing the entire day! TIU is so diverse and challenges you no matter what your fitness level may be.
I really love the TIU app 💕 I love that I can see the workouts for the week, the length of the workouts and plan a time to workout based on my daily schedule. I also love that the app reminds me my class is about to start :) When the day gets a little crazy, I look up the daily workout in the on demand section of the app where I can pause and rewind the video as well. This app has gotten me to workout everyday and I love it. Thank you TIU
It’s truly worth it 5/5
This app is really worth the money! TIU makes things pretty fool-proof by sending out a free workout schedule every week. It helps keep daily workouts structured. Plus the workouts really challenge you! I also like how they get right to the point when the workout starts- they don’t dilly-daddle which is perfect for people on a tight schedule!
Love TUI!! 5/5
This community/app has been the first place I have been able to be consistent with working out. I have to be at work at 7am and there until 6 or 7pm usually. Most traditional gyms don’t have classes early enough or late enough for me to be able to be consistent. Through this app I’m able to get my work out in when it’s best for me and these work outs are some of the best workouts I’ve ever had. Man will you sweat. And how can you beat the price!
Only small glitches in the app. I think the checks for the number of my weekly workouts must go off a 24 hour clock from the last workout or something. So if I workout at night then the next morning I won’t get a check. Which isn’t a big deal but just nice to see that checkmark some days haha.
Also I think it would be awesome to have the nutrition plan linked in the app one day as well. Just an idea.
Love what you have created! Thank you!
Great substitute for an expensive trainer 5/5
I got this APP to add more strength workouts to my instead of hiring an expensive trainer. My friend and I do it together. We get a little frustrated because we can’t seem to start our class at the same time. Otherwise I am loving my new addition to my workouts.
Studio Tone It Up 5/5
Awesome app with tons of great workouts that are customizable to your schedule and with great instructors!
Just getting started and love the support from the Tone It Up community.
Love TIU 4/5
As a mom of four I need flexibility and that is exactly what TIU provides! Love the workouts, the variety and as the meditation series. Mental health is just as important as physical and really enjoy these quick meditation videos. Just wish there was a meal/diet component to this app, then it would be perfect!!
Katrina, Karena and all of the other Tone It Up family have put their time, effort and dreams into creating this amazing community!! The app is amazing! The nutrition plan is AMAZING! The workouts (both scheduled and on demand) are amazing! Everything about Tone It Up is amazing! As most people, I’ve tried other routes in the health world and this is the first one that I’ve felt super comfortable with and that I’ve seen actual physical and mental changes in my body and mind! Thank you for being born TIU!!
Great, but only with perfect WiFi 1/5
I love the app when I have perfect WiFi signal... otherwise mid studio workout it freezes, I get a blank white screen with only sound, and the daily moves... yeah those get stuck on a move and won’t move forward... a lot. And that’s very annoying. if the next page can’t load while I do 20 bikini walkouts there is a problem. It’s got a great features, I love the chat to connect with girl and the studio classes are amazing.. when you can actually do a whole workout without freezing or the screen going all white with just sound.
So fun!! Love Studio Tone It Up! 5/5
I never knew working out could be so fun until I found the Tone It Up Girls! I love all of their workouts from HIIT to Yoga, I can't get enough!! Having the ability to stream their workouts right from my phone makes it so fun and easy to do! I love how well-rounded, uplifting & down to earth these girls are and I truly admire them! I highly recommend the Studio Tone It Up app, it is worth every penny!! ❤️
The best! 5/5
I love being able to choose a class or do videos on my own from the on demand section. Tone it up has really changed everything about my health! I feel the best I ever had and am finally reaching my goals.
Love this App! 5/5
I love this app! K & K are so inspiring & motivating! I love the accountability & sense of community. I truly look forward to my workouts!!! 🙂
Best fitness app EVER🙌🏽 5/5
Simple, easy to use, and EFFECTIVE!! Love TIU!! 💪🏼💕
Bikini Series! 5/5
I love this company, the bikini series workouts have made me more fit then when I was going to gym classes and spending money on trainers. I actually like doing push ups now :)
Only app feedback would be the daily workout portion gets stuck often and won't let you see the images or progress the workout. My work around is to use the website instead, but I would like to do everything on the app.
I love you all!!
You ladies are incredible!!!!! 5/5
Thank you so much for making this possible! I absolutely love this app and you ladies!! Y’all are very inspirational and I have enjoyed sharing my fitness journey with y’all!
Love this app 5/5
This app is fantastic. The on demand library is so great, and I love the live classes and daily moves. I used it for less than a week before deciding to buy a year subscription. Thank you so much for getting me back in shape and for being so responsive with issues.
Love this app! I can schedule classes, I can talk to other girls! I can also do toning moves whenever I want. The color scheme is to die for as well!
Makes working out fun and easy!! 5/5
Use this AP every.single.day! Love being able to schedule a workout and workout alongside fellow tone it up babes and have the ability to chat throughout the workout and afterwards! Makes working out fun and easy! Not to mention the tone it up trainers are incredible and keep you motivated and laughing throughout the workout. So much love for the tone it up ap, trainers and community! 💗💗
Love this app! 5/5
I love this app and it’s so motivating to know that other girls are doing the workouts at the same time. And if the timing doesn’t work out, there is always the on demand option. I also love all the new trainers who, like Karena and Katrina, are uplifting and inspiring! The Tone It Up energy has always been wonderful,
positive, and also life changing. It is so easy to get GREAT and CHALLENGING workouts done in the home. This is perfect and so convenient for busy working moms like me. Thank you Karena and Katrina!!!😍
Studio Tone It Up is such a great resource! I travel quite a bit for work and this comes with me everywhere I go, making it so easy for me to workout in my hotel room or even take it to hte hotel gym and do a class there. The live classes are so fun to see everyone doing the class at the same time, you're motivated to give it your all to the very end! I probably use the ondemand classes the most, I really love the varite of workouts to choose from, you'll never get bored working out with these girls! Everything TIU is positive and encouraging, just do it :)
My no excuse for a toned body!!! 5/5
Love being able to fully customize my work outs according to the amount of time I have every morning and the type of work out I want! some days I’m into strength & heavier weights and others yoga or stretching... or I do the studio class of the day. All the workouts have been amazing, love the instructors and the settings. Perfect for this full time working mother who loves to feel great. Thanks TIU team!!! ❤️😘
Workout on the go 5/5
I absolutely love this app! It works great and you can do it no matter where you are. Such a wide range of exercises and the classes are so good. The trainers are top notch and so encouraging it’s wonderful because it inspires you to keep going. Thank you so much for this app!
Love it 5/5
User friendly and fun.
Yay! Great app and a great deal 5/5
By Nicky G 614
If you think about what a yearly or monthly gym membership costs, the TIU app is a great-value deal! (bought year-long for $7/mo.)
Also, the girls are so motivating and the workouts are different every time, which keeps you on your toes and gets all sorts of muscles in your body! Love it, love it, love it
Awesome, but could use some minor updates 5/5
By Deaanna B
First: I love this app. I love need someone else to tell me what to do at the gym, and I’m seeing changes from regular use. It’s been worth every penny.
There are some minor changes I would make to make it work better for me. First, I’d love it if videos played when my phone is locked. Sometimes it has to go in my pocket (lets be real, my sports bra) during a workout, and I wish I could lock it. Second, it would be amazing to be able to filter the videos by required equipment. So pick legs, then be able to filter for booty bands or weightless or whatever. Lastly, I’d like to be able to see how consistent I’ve been with the app. It tracks how many workouts you’ve done in a week, but I do t think there’s anywhere to see compiled results.
This app is truly amazing. Not only can you enroll in classes, but if you need to fit one in then you can do any of them on demand. Also, I love that if I’m running a minute or two late to a class, that I can just jump in!
Love the Tiu app 5/5
I’m obsessed with this app. I use it everyday and look forward to it to begin or end my day. I feel like K&K are my girlfriends that I work out with everyday. I recommend this app to all my friends!
TIU ❤️ 5/5
I love this app! It has changed my lifestyle and given be access to an amazing community! I haven’t had any problems with using it; the format is straightforward and I’m able to login/schedule/enjoy my classes without any issues.
A suggestion would be to make the daily moves something the plays (maybe with a timer?) so when I’m going through them my phone doesn’t continue to dim and lock. It doesn’t do that while playing videos or streaming classes obviously but I don’t want to have to turn this security feature off while using the app each time. Minor preference I know but that’s all I could think of...
TY TIU for this app! ❤️
Community and accountability!❤️❤️❤️ 5/5
By G'burg Squirrel
I love this app and the TIU spirit! When I schedule the classes I get reminders and I actually move my butt, put on my shoes, and show up! If I show up I know I’ll get a workout in. Also, even though I’m in my little home gym, knowing there are other women working out with me at the same time really helps, and seeing their live comments in the chat after the workout is awesome! MUCH less expensive than the gym or classes, and all on my schedule when it works for ME! The TIU studio app is really working for me!! 👍
TIU App is awesome!! 5/5
I love my TIU app so much. It’s a great way to check in with the community and the work outs are great!! The On Demand section is wonderful if your traveling and have limited access to equipment.
Great App 5/5
I really like this app. I like being able to schedule classes, this makes me more likely to get up on time for my morning workout. There also are a lot of videos that can be streamed too.
