Really motivated 4/5
I really like this app and all the features. It makes me motivated and i want to keep doing it. I would really like if there was a feature for the food category. So say you didn’t eat the recommended meal one day but you still wanted to log what you ate that would be nice. If you could add a feature where you can log the food you ate. Also if there was a feature that all the favorited food items on the app would go. Just like a list of all the meals you have starred in case you wanted to go back and make that meal again which i assume is what the starred feature is for.
Could be a 5-Star app 3/5
...but it’s just too glitchy and works inconsistently. For $20 a month, i have higher expectations than this.
Love it 4/5
It is a very handy app that reduces the stress of what to do and when. Also food suggestions are helpful. I really wish it had an appletv app and/or a function where I don’t have to touch the screen each time I want to move on to the next workout.
Don’t sign up with fb or give your name unless you want to get charged a monthly fee. 1/5
A friend sent me a link so I downloaded the free app, signed in with Facebook and apparently I have been getting charged. 19.99 a month for 6month. I have never used the app so don’t know how it works, but can’t find any info on who to contact about it.
You will get results! 5/5
I’ve used this program on and off for about a year. I am stronger and leaner. I don’t have time in my busy life to pre-plan all my workouts and spend hours in the gym which is why I love Kayla’s app. I get a killer workout in within 30 mins, and it’s super effective. Can’t recommend enough!
Money making scam 1/5
I unsubscribed and deleted this app months ago, but it turns out my card has still been charged $20 each month. I downloaded this app for a brief time to see what it was all about- did not think it was worth the money- and deleted. I never got my free trial and was charged $20 for months after unsubscribing from this app. They make it impossible to cancel. COMPLETE SCAM.
Only thing that’s worked for me 5/5
By Lauren E.D.
This app is a Godsend ! I have never really been in shape and after having my daughter I decided it was time I get my act together. This app is understandable, I love how it builds week to week and the exercises are broken down to explain if you don’t get it initially. I can do everything from home (which I love! Gyms are intimidating to me) and the fact that Kayla added different trainers and programs to switch it up is awesome, so you don’t get bored. These workouts are quick at 28 minutes and totally doable. I am SO glad I found these workouts and will continue to keep up with them!
Overpriced for what it offers 1/5
I think the monthly subscription is way too expensive for what this app offers. Most free workout apps I’ve seen have had more of a variety of workouts than this app has. I think they need to add a lot more workouts and other additional content for it to be worth the price. Do better.
Amazing program but app has lots of bugs 3/5
I am on BBG Week 12. I love the workouts in the app and the workout planner. The only problem I have seems to be a programming/coding issue. Multiple times I have been using the app and it freezes. During the Resistance workouts it has frozen between circuits. I just did the Challenge, and I was on the last exercise (50 minutes into the workout), I went to change the song and the whole app froze and then went back to the main "workouts" tab. It basically restarted and said I didn’t do my workout. I've had to cancel the app and restart the workout from the beginning. The app also lags. When I click “next” to go to the next workout it does not switch, I thought I didn't click it so I clicked it again and then it skips an exercise. Another issue is notifications. I have checked the app and notification center in my phone settings and all notifications should be pushed to my phone but I do not receive notifications unless I have my phone unlocked and the app open. I have googled this and I have updated to the latest iOS, I have deleted and re-stored the app, and I have logged on via a computer so I know it's not my account. The issue seems to only be on my phone. It's really frustrating when the app does not work properly when you're trying to get through the Resistance or the Challenge. I know this has been a topic on the blog as well so something should really get done to make the programming/coding better and in turn make the app run smoother. It has gathered a lot of popularity and quite the following and it deserves the proper programming to satisfy the tens and thousands that use the app. I would really like to recommend this app to a friend but I always tell them how the app doesn't run smoothly.
Stop sending me emails!!! 1/5
So I download the app and I found out it wasn’t free and I just never had time for it(mainly don’t have time for it due to work) so I uninstall the app but somehow I was getting emails so I hit the unsubscribe button at the bottom of the email and it still give me emails so how do I fix it... I never got past the email and never entered a card number but it won’t stop sending me emails!!!!!
What do I do!!!!?!!!!
I will rate it 5 stars or take this down when it is fixed🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬😡😡😡😡😡😡😡
Comprehensive Workout App! 5/5
By Melissa CB (GA)
This app gives you the convenience of a personal trainer without the high price tag. I’ve worked it with a personal trainer at a cost of $45/session but once we got going I realized I could do it on my own if I could know what exercises to do and I could stay motivated. This app shows you the exercises and how to do them-you can modify if needed and pause between exercises if needed AND Kayla not only shows you the stretches and times you so you do them correctly and for long enough. We never stretched with my PT. The goals for each week but the progress keeps you motivated. You don’t need a gym membership—just a few pieces of equipment that you can get along the way as you get stronger. $20 a month is a lot less than a gym membership and a PT so if you use it, it’s a great value. I love that there are yoga sessions to mix in and diet suggestions. The only thing I wish they would add a diet option for Paleo.
Great for work travelers 5/5
I travel for work a lot and it’s quite difficult to find time or motivation to work out in the scant time between meetings and work dinners. This is perfect for that lifestyle- short enough to fit in between events and I can do it in my hotel room, which is ideal since most hotel gyms are lacking. I highly recommend this program.
Great workouts 4/5
Great app and excellent workouts. I love having the different workout options and how it holds me accountable. The only thing I’d change is I wish the yoga had audio and would say the moves, trying to keep an eye on the app the whole time isn’t helping my workout.
Doesn’t Work! 1/5
I downloaded the app 2 weeks ago and the start button doesn’t work on any of the workouts. After multiple emails to support, they are unable to fix it!
Sweat Is Hard 5/5
Just started and so far its kicking my butt!
Wow I love this app 5/5
I started the BBG guides years ago, before there was an app. But the app keeps me WAY more motivated and makes working out that much more fun. I love how every workout move is played in video form as you are exercising. I don’t use the nutrition guides as much but will borrow a recipe on occasion. There are so many women in this community that started with no regular workout routine and have come back with fitness being a huge new outlet in their lives. I believe this app can take anyone and put them on a path to achieving a brand new body, lifestyle, and greater happiness. I’ve learned how much exercising makes me a happier/more driven person. This app is the reason I started my fitness journey and I’m grateful for it, the community, and kayla for pushing me to work for a better version of myself day in and day out.
Why even bother the list the app as free if you have to pay to use it?
I know this may sound stupid but as a teenager I hate that I have to pay to use this app. It’s mainly disappointing because I see the app in the app store and it says “free” then I open it up and it says I have to pay?!😭
Great workouts, bad app 3/5
I love the workouts and the fact that the app gives you a weekly workout guide. But the Activity tab is out of whack. It says I’ve completed workouts when I haven’t, and adds particular workouts on the wrong days. Just some annoying glitches that make it hard to actually see my real progress.
By Smilez 😉
I did the free trial, canceled, and was still charged 2 months before I noticed. Now I can’t even figure out how to stop this app!
Pretty upset... 1/5
When I signed up for the free trial, I didn’t have to put in my card info, so I thought “okay cool.” Fast forward a week and they charged my iTunes account $19.99. 🙄 I don’t recall reading anything that said that would happen when signing up. I took one look at the recommended meals and decided not to even do the free trial. No wonder the weight loss results are so great... they’re not eating.
buyer beware—when you do the 7 day free trial, even when you cancel before the trial ends, you will be charged $19.99 the following month until you go into your apple ID settings and manually turn off the auto renew feature.
Best app 💕 5/5
I follow Kayla n Instagram, she inspires me a lot! I started to use this app for almost 4 months. My body changed, I started to loss weight, learn to eat more healthy without big sacrifices
Thank u Kayla! You are amazing 🌻
Been loving BBG for years! 5/5
I started doing BBG when the PDF was a thing and LOVED it, so when the app came out I had to see what it was all about. And I LOVE IT. I’ve been using it on and off for one year and recently started to use it 100% and love it! Everything is super easy to use, track and get meal ideas. Highly recommend it!
Very disappointed 😔 1/5
I couldn't even get to the first exercise of the workout! The app was so slow and every time I pressed "start" the app would load the first exercise but then froze and the app would crash! Was trying to get into shape for prom but I guess not. Very disappointed since I've heard good things about the app. Paid so much money for nothing!!😞😞😞
Difficult if you have joint issues. 1/5
If you have joint issues, this workout is too difficult
I downloaded this but then decided it wasn’t for me. I didn’t realize I was being charged monthly. That is my fault obviously but they won’t refund even though I never used it.
Love it!! 5/5
On week 17. App is so easy to use. Absolutely love it!
Pricey but great 4/5
Really does change your body in amazing ways.
If you want to look good, this apps for you 5/5
By Smart Kar
This app is no nonsense. If you follow the instructions, you will 100% see results. I just finished my first 12 week cycle and I look better than I have since competitive sports in high school. It’s worth the money.
The worst app possible 1/5
It’s pretty useless if you ask me. I canceled my account after trying it out for a few days. They continue to charge me, and put me through a chase to figure out how to cancel. I canceled through apple and the app, and customer service reply’s with “ appears active on our end”. Well I’m emailing to cancel! Doesn’t that say a lot! Horrible. Don’t waste your money or time. Watch some YouTube videos for free and with enough determination you’ll be fit.
Gym goers beware 2/5
TL;DR: Poor app for gym, needs updates, poor customer service, amazing potential.
Customer service is poor. I’ve rated the app with feedback via the app for it to hopefully be updated and there hasn’t been a single response. You can’t use the app the way it’s intended if you plan to use it at the gym. You can look at the workouts, and follow, but it doesn’t work out for that time period plus you don’t want to be running around your gym. It’s truly intended for someone with a full personal gym or a well equipped overpriced smaller gym.
Tbh my body was craving cardio after a few weeks. Find what works for you. It’d be better if you could customize your workouts.
Kayla I love your insta and channel but here’s what would make the app 10x better:
-workout encyclopedia (by type/equipment/muscle)
-the ability to “check off” workouts completed (as a whole or individual parts of the workout - not just “already completed this workout?”
-an option to build your own workouts w/ recommendations based on how long they’ve been working out (not just how long they’ve been using the app)
-stop the automatic week updates it’s annoying to have to continually go into the setting and reset weeks if the current week is too hard!!! Have it be a pop up or choice this shouldn’t be that hard.
Lastly if I actually heard back from Kayla’s team I wouldn’t be mad. Especially after paying for a full year. You think that much $$$ would have the developers listening. Just work on your stuff girl. Please I really want to love this app. Especially because it’s great for beginners, women, those who can’t pay for a personal trainer. Please!
Doesn’t work!! 1/5
By Powerpuff bubbles 98
I’ve downloaded this app about 5 different times if not more to try the 7 day trial out. While it lets me download it and get the 7 day trial With every download I can not access any of the app. It keeps saying there is an error every time I download the app. It’s unfortunate that I won’t be able to test the trial out since it’s not even working and now my trial ends in the couple of days. I’m glad I didn’t purchase anything since it doesn’t even work.
Terrible customer service 1/5
My debit card was stolen and someone purchased this program without my knowledge. Customer service wouldn’t give me my money back and it’s ridiculous. My back account got all messed up and they first didn’t even reply until o wrote again and they still would not help me, just said sorry we can’t.
Hopefully it works for you, but the customer service is terrible!
Awesome and Quick 4/5
By Suite Buns
I love it. I’m sticking w it. I wish the app would say the next exercise especially on the yoga portion.
Love it!!! But... 4/5
By Before ever
I am super happy I started this program. It started working for me from the first week and in the first 6 weeks I lost 14lb. I love the workouts. I love that the app counts down the time for you and it’s very convenient and easy to use. I was also able to connect my iWatch which makes it even more convenient because it counts my steps and I can do my workouts without have to have the phone in front of me. I also like that the workouts are not long which is very important for me as a mother of 3. I also really like that the meals have the measurements for one person so you know how much you should eat.The reason why I rated with 4 stars is because of meals. I am not able to follow the meal plan because it turns out a little too much on our budget and inconvenient for my whole family to eat. There are foods included that would require me to make two dinners (one for me and one for my family) which is impossible when you have 3 kids. I really wish the meals were made with food that is actually something the whole family would eat. Also, for each meal to say how many calories are in this meal. I really feel if the meals were adjusted, I would be able to follow it and have even better results.
The exercise start button stopped working 2/5
I really wanted to like this app and exercise program. The start button to start the exercises stopped working, which renders this app useless, and the calendar doesn’t track the exercises I have completed in prior weeks properly. It’s also not very intuitively designed. I would appreciate a cumulative body selfie feature that you can use to compare your body changes weekly. Given these glitches and the price tag of $20 per month, an exercise DVD or YouTube videos are a better deal.
I have NEVER looked the better 5/5
The workouts are short and attainable, the results are life changing. I feel confident and strong. Honestly, the monthly fee seemed a little high to me, that’s why I didn’t try it sooner, but now- I would go back and hand them all my dollars right away!!! LOVE Kayla!
Approachable Fitness 5/5
The app makes it EASY to follow a plan and stick with it. It’s very user friendly, and the workouts are approachable but still very challenging.
Love it- just a few updates 5/5
I love this app and have been using it for a long time but lately there seems to be a bug with the BAM program? It’ll do vinyasa for circuit 2 and then skip straight to circuit 3 without any standing strength. Same with circuit 3 it does balance and skips the second part. I have to restart the app and skip to the workouts I want which is annoying. And voice cues during yoga would be great so you don't have to watch the screen. Otherwise awesome app, recommended it to all my friends.
I used this as a 7 day free trial and was diligent to cancel the account within 5 days.
What they have written in the fine print is that you must also cancel via iOS, as just “cancelling” in-app is not enough! I got charged $20 for an account I cancelled ...but i didn’t find out about needing to do a 2nd form of cancellations until looking up FAQs and commonly asked questions.
This should be plainly written out on apps main cancellation screen! THIS FEELS LIKE THEY ARE STEALING YOUR MONEY. Totally unprofessional.
No audio queues 2/5
I really like the workouts in this app, but the lack of audio queues makes it impossible to follow and is a deal breaker for a beginner like me.
Amazing workout app! 5/5
By A meshkov
Love that I can keep track of my workouts. Great transformation from using SWEAT!
“Beginner” isn’t for beginners 4/5
I think this app is perfect for fit people looking to totally transform their lifestyle.
But the beginner workout was truly so much more challenging than I could do it went from “let’s modify so I can do something” to not even being able to finish, being stressed about the time limit, not being able to see the plan (like how many sets and reps to do in total, just a video popping up when it’s time to switch), made this not actually beginner friendly. I’d recommend this app in a heartbeat to someone stronger and more fit than me, but this was just discouraging and expensive.
Best thing for moms! 5/5
I love this app! As a new mom I was having a really hard time getting to the gym let alone getting there on time for a class. I can do these workouts quickly and they are really effective!
Rediscovered Joy of Working Out 5/5
By Nikimarie in OH
As a former college athlete, I’m no stranger to hard work outs. After having my second kid and changing jobs, I got stuck in a rut of not working out. My physical and mental health was suffering. The Sweat app has helped me to rediscover what I love about working out. Each day is challenging, and I find myself looking forward to my time in the gym.
Life changing! 5/5
I can’t recommend this program enough! I’ve tried so many workouts but this is by far the best. I lost a dress size in 12 weeks and can’t wait to start my next round. If you’re on the fence, go for it!!
Don’t use this app! They will take your money! 1/5
I liked this app at first and was telling others they should try it till this happened......Very frustrating. I signed up to just do the month to see if I like it and come to find out I got charged for a YEAR. $131.00.
Then when I ask if I can get refunded it won’t let me. Will not recommend this app to anyone.
Not worth the money 2/5
Advertised as something you can do at home. But you actually need to be at a gym. Most people don’t have benches, barbells and bosu balls at home. Yes you can modify the workouts so that you don’t need those items. Only some of the workouts offer views of modifications so you either need to know how to modify it or look it up yourself. Most after pictures of people with amazing results are people that have done the program multiple times. You can’t expect the results advertised in 12 weeks. It is still a good workout and good to have a guide if you are starting out. BUT you CAN find the COMPLETE guide on Pinterest for FREE!! I highly suggest finding it there if you are interested in trying this program.
Yoga review 3/5
I love the workouts in this app! I do wish the yoga app talked you through the positions! It’s hard to try to keep correct form and then constantly look at the phone to see when you’re changing positions etc. If that update was made it would be 5 stars for sure!
