It works! 5/5
I lost 40 pounds on this app!
Solid App 4/5
Pros: mapping, intervals, coaching, great for beginners
Cons: cost (for premium), calorie accuracy, variation of levels
I started this app when I wanted to pick up running again. I love having the structure when going for a run. Having the different intervals makes it go by faster.
I loved the first stage. Building up from walking to running was exactly what I needed. I felt very accomplished. It also seems to be accurate in tracking distance and pacing.
The advice in the app is also good. I appreciate the different tips.
Sometimes I haven’t understood the harder stages. It seems like there’s not much else to do once you finish the 8 week program. The way the ads opened forced me to get premium or I couldn’t access the program at all. I had to get premium and I don’t think it’s worth it. Also, I’ve noticed it’s pretty generous with counting calories. One time I had it on to count walking and it said I burned over 700 calories walking 3.5 miles in an hour. That seems high to me for walking. But for running, it usually matches the treadmill closely when I run indoors. Just keep in mind it seems to count at a constant rate regardless of your speed.
Crooks and Robbers 1/5
I downloaded the app to get more information about what is offered. I saw unusual charges for $10 on my account and it turns out they have been charging me for 12 months for an app I downloaded and erased the same day. They are bad business. They will steal your money. $120 is not a lot but it’s my $120 and who knows how many people they are doing this to!!!!!! Stay away!!! I gave 1 star because zero was not an option!
Made a Runner out of Me! 5/5
Made a runner out of me and I lost 30 pounds!
Not working today 1/5
Will not download you have to pay 2 separate fees for walking or running
I’m simply confused as to this not being free anymore. Is it now absolutely mandatory for one to pay? I used to love this running app and really didn’t mind the fact that to get all the features, you had to pay for the premium version. I was fine with the things included when it was free. I stopped for a while, as I got busy, and when I went back to try running again, I found that I have to pay to access the app. There is no free version anymore, and I’ve got to say, that both disappoints and saddens me very much.

Why can’t I use this app without buying a premium subscription? All of my friends use it and they just have ads but they don’t pay for it.
Love this app but could use a few adjustments 4/5
By Madalyn moree
I really love this app. I have been running for four weeks in a row now the most I’ve ever done. I’m down 7 pounds between running with this app and healthy eating. However I give it four stars because I wish when you were running it would give you a warning like “30 seconds left until 80% sprint” and also let you know when you’re on your last running section before cool down that way when I feel like I’ve been running forever I don’t have to open my phone and check. Otherwise this is definitely worth the money!
It's hard and challenging.You will have strong legs.
Not free anymore 1/5
So it’s not free anymore?
Cant cancel subscription 1/5
TERRIBLE! I wanted to stop the subscription and the directions are way to hard to do so!!!! This is STEALING. Do not SIGN UP FOR THIS APP! I am so upset.
Muy buena app 5/5
Espectacular y verdaderamente te ayuda a aprender a correr.. me encanta 😍🥰
The app automatically charges about $42 when you’re not ready to order. 1/5
Keep an eye on this app. It changes you automatically even if you never intended to purchase it.
Kept me running 5/5
By kimberly m
I’ve been trying to get back into running. I got sidelined by pregnancy, c section, not having a baby jogger or sitter, a severely ill husband, and sudden single mommy hood. I finally got a baby jogger and went 2x. I have gained so much weight I’m miserable and nothing seems to change it. Well I’ve downloaded countless apps and this one asked for a lifelong subscription or free trial for days and then a 6 month subscription. I loved the run. I did more than I expected and I was happy! I just feel bit ripped off on price. If they said try it and buy in next 24 hours buy the lifetime I would have been much happier.
It says I have to have a membership or to start a membership or something is there anyway I can use this app for free
Great but no Apple Watch complications? 4/5
Would be a 5 star with complications...
Love it! 5/5
Really helpful for my postpartum workouts
This is the most useless app
Used to love 2/5
Absolutely loved this app, used it for years. Disappointed to find now no longer able to use without a monthly membership fee. Cannot justify $10/ month when monthly gym memberships are the same.
Do not sign up 1/5
By Aimee kaplan
I selected do not subscribe and it pushed me through and there are no options to cancel. Do not get sucked in.

Thanks for stealing and wasting my money
10 Pounds down on week 6! 5/5
I love/hate this app. Love because it works, hate because it kicks my a**! Stick to it and you will see results! I see my improvement on endurance and speed in each run. It’s amazing what the body can do when you’re consistent. Anyway! Thank you thank you! Can’t wait to see my results by week 8 :)
App doesn’t sync between iPad and IPhone to provide flexibility. Some days I want to use my phone and other days I prefer my iPad based on where I am working out. Would be a nice enhancement.
Great Beginner App 5/5
By jenene the Runner
I love this app it is truly life changing for me. I could barely run 15 seconds without feeling like I would die. Yes found this app and it has really helped run now I can finally run with ease, it motivates you the whole time you are using the app and it also send you notifications to drink water. The best app ever . Everyone should have this App hands down the holy Grail of Running Apps!!!
Disappointed with the forced subscription 1/5
My friend recommended this app bc we wanted to start running together. She had downloaded it a long time, so we thought we’d give this app a try. I told her I was forced to elect the 1-wk free trial and subscribe to a paid membership if I wanted to continue after that. She kept insisting that it’s free and that she never had to pay before. But nowhere could I find or figure out how to use this app while opting out of premium membership... It feels deceiving to be listed as a free app on the App Store, when you’re forced to pay up after a 1-wk free trial.
Needs to fix a bug where the coach stops speaking if the stats start speaking. When that happens, you don’t hear the coach again for the rest of the run. Other than that I love this app.
Great Interval Training 4/5
This app is a nice alternative to my tradition running pace. Great variety and the prompts are great. The pausing is not great, if I’m at a stop light it starts again on its own, this needs to be fixed.
Eliminated basic membership 1/5
This app was great when it was an ad-based basic membership with an option for premium features. Even though it is free to download, you can no longer access any features of the app without a pricey membership.
Great Running App 5/5
Love this app! Never any glitches. Provides variety for someone like me who doesn’t like just running the whole time. It goes from running, to walking then sprinting, so it keeps me entertained. I also love that it sends me reminders to drink water throughout the day!
This app along with its sister fitness app are INCREDIBLE! The premium is definitely worth it and the music is everything I wanted plus more. This app along with the fitness app has saved me so much money bc now I don’t have to go to Orangetheory or CrossFit or any group classes to get the same effective workout with the music! I’m floored!!
Help with subscription 4/5
How do I end my subscription
Easy to download, hard to cancel 2/5
App has some nice features but you’re not able to test them until you sign up for the free trial which automatically links to you’re Apple ID and charges you once it’s over. They make this app hard to cancel by making you go into iTunes and cancel through your subscriptions. I was only able to figure out how to do this on desktop.
Won’t let me cancel my subscription!
Not Happy Being forced to Sub 1/5
I bought this app a long time ago when it was a free ad-driven version and an upgrade to remove the ads (2.99 or 4.99, I can’t remember). Well now I am being forced to sub to a program I bought when it was ad-based? I don’t want the trackers or any of the other features that I have on existing apps, I want the running plan I had for 2 years before you all forced us to upgrade and changed your revenue model.
I can do what this app offers on my own. From what I read it talked you through your runs and added variations so that it wasn’t so boring. Also I thought there was a free option but it wouldn’t even let me continue without purchasing. Luckily, there was a free trial because I will not use this. Not really sure what is so special about this app.
Not free 1/5
By Flor Carranza
I downloaded the app because a friend recommended it to me since she uses the free app. But, when downloaded after entering info it asked to select a subscription.
Best App!! 5/5
I’ve used this app to get me going! By far the easiest to follow with maximum results!
Very good 5/5
Not sure 1/5
Downloaded app. Could not get past the “Join now and save your money screen”. Deleted app.
Лишьбы получить денег за подписку 1/5
Раньше в приложении был бесплатный функционал, которым можно было пользоваться. Теперь все только на платной подписке. Все хотят зарабатывать, я это понимаю. Мне реально нравилось приложение для интервального бега, остальное особо не использовала. Поставила пробный период, где четко было написано, что списание будет 15 числа и за день меня уведомят, чтоб я могла отменить бесплатную подписку, если передумаю. И что в результате? Денег списали 12 числа за год. Никаких уведомлений не было ни от приложения, ни на почту, ни каким либо образом. Написала в их техподдержку с просьбой вернуть деньги. Меня отправили разбираться с apple store, якобы они ничего не могут сделать. А в магазине попадаешь на какую то политику о невозврате денежных средств. Итого мне никто ничего не вернул.
НЕ РЕКОМЕНДУЮ приложение из-за вот такого отношения к клиенту. А я ведь реально хотела подписаться до этой ситуации.
By glamorous Jackie
For such an expensive app, it should included recommended pace for each intervals, especially for a beginner.
I’ve only been using the app for two weeks, but I paid for the subscription cause I really wanted to do it and had used the free version in the past. My question is why do I just randomly not get my cues? I’ll get the first few and then it’ll stop. I’m a beginner runner and will feel like I’m dying so I’ll pull it out and check and will have missed when it tells me to walk. I use Bluetooth headphones and listen to Spotify while using it. I do use the lock screen, but it doesn’t help.
Me encanta 5/5
Great app 5/5
Ever since I retired from the military I gained some weight. I wanted to start back on my running and this app is great to start. Even if you’re an avid runner the advance option will be beneficial. Overall it’s a great app for beginners or advanced. The only downside are the ads...but they are manageable. I use it, my brother, my sister, my mother...im pushing this app on everyone🤣.
Not what it used to be 1/5
Somehow I got charged $42/mo.
Because the app. Is evil now.
Good app 4/5
Very easy app to follow
Not free 2/5
I used this app a couple of years ago and it was great but it is. I lo get free. It is quite expensive now over $40 for just 6 months.
