I don’t normally do reviews but this app is a must have.
Good app, unstable, crashes constantly by Jim of the Jungle
This app is unreliable and crashes almost every time I use it, especially when entering body weight. It’s gotten to the point where I’m going to have to look around for something else, an app that isn’t going to quit on me all the time.
What happened to this app? by HovannesJam
Where is everything? Where is my workout folders that I made? Such a shame.. this app used to be so good.
Scam - do not buy by ericrm551993
I made the mistake of blindly purchasing a year subscription for this app based on its great reviews and found it to be a scam. The app barely passes as functional. The layout makes no sense and the “personalized” workouts seem to give you pretty much the same workouts no matter what goal you choose. I have no idea how this has so many good reviews unless they are fake
Disappointed by Nitin Gautam
Explored the app and found not much helpful mean plans, reached support to get refund they asking to reach apple and apple have not a option listed for refund.
Solid app! by Mr. Rogers101
Great app! Super easy to use, and even easier to keep track of your goals and progress!
Disappointing by Dandiesdoesdorat
I’ve been subscribed but I’m done with this app. Awesome at first but I can’t even access the app offline when I work out..
Works by TXN1
Great app, helps you stay on track of your workouts.
One Suggestions by Agarc2896
The apple watch has become such a huge part of my workout routine and now with lte cellular connection, maybe a well made apple watch app to complement the app itself would be amazing. Had to start using UA Myfitnesspal to easily track my calories. Would love to come back once the app it intigrated with the watch flawlessly. Rep counter for the workouts and things like that
Great app by Danthehandyman
Keeps me going!!
Total package by 3suns
I been using this app for awhile now. And it has become my stand alone workout/ health app of choice. All around packed with everything you need. I use the calorie counting and the sleep tracker daily.
Here is why... by Mabbadubba
....every time you have an update for sure I’ll miss a feature or two... as in the latest occasion: I cannot edit reorganize the sequence of my custom workout... Why?? Put it back please!!
And what happened to the thumbnails? Put them back please!!
It doesn’t make sense that you remove features. It is not as intuitive!!
Top rated workout not working by SixSigmaBlackBelt
The Top rated workout choice will not let you pass the screens asking for some vital information. It looks like the screens are too big. I can’t scroll down to answer more of the required questions, hence, the continue button is disabled.
My Buddy by JL1744
When my partner stand me up I have Fitness Buddy to keep me motivated.
Don’t waste your money by maxwerj
There are plenty of free alternatives that give you all the features that this paid app provides. Every feature I’ve tried to use wants me to pay an annual subscription before using. Not really sure what the original $3.99 is supposed to cover.
Disappointed by drivera1991
I was hoping to find 1 month + workouts but they only have those for at home workout. There is a whole community out there at the gym who just want to be guided everyday. I don’t what to custom make a workout nor do I want to to spend everyday choosing from a set of available templates. I want templates that will load to my calendar and be set for the next 1 to 3 months with gym equipment guidance.
Developers need to stop updating by Ryan.Lec
I’ve been using this app for about 6 years now. I Used to recommend this to all of my friends who were trying to get into working out or looking for a good tracking app. However, overtime this app has progressively gotten less user friendly and less efficient which has caused me to back track on any of my recommendations. Aside from occasional crashing, the issues I’d like to point out most are as follows:
- Exercises are no longer in alphabetical order on the exercise list. I get that I can type it in, but this shouldn’t even be an issue in the first place.
-Workout description fields don’t save what you enter
-Custom workouts appear as “Unknown”
- Even after paying, my workout is often interrupted by ads for premium membership, as well as “premium” exercises locking out on me.
- When I start my workout, the exercise types aren’t specified anymore. For instance, “Barbell benchpress, Incline” just shows up as “Barbell benchpress”
Many of these are small but it’s just more to pile on top of the years worth of terrible updates ripping this app apart. My complaints about those updates have been mentioned by others in plenty of negative reviews this app has received.
Strange how the app I paid $0.99 for back in 2013 was vastly better than this dumpster fire that by now should be making the money to actually improve.
Have Used For Years by One_Against_Many
I love this app. It is exhaustive in the exercises it had in its library. I sometimes use it to find new ideas for working out a specific body part. The only thing I would recommend is that the display of available exercises is sorted by popularity as there are plenty of exercises that are very niche and hardly used by many users I suspect. But great app over all.
So many problems by Shepherd517
The diet test doesn’t work at all, nothing happens after I finished the test.
Custom workout program is buried so deep.
And many other basic problems
Used to be good by Nolan 123940
This app used to be amazing and I customized workouts on it all the time. The new update really messed with the system and switching to the premium account was the biggest waste of money.
Lo peor by lapeorcompra
Me siento estafada, lo compré pensando que eso evitaría que la aplicación estuviera todo disponible no es así. Te pide que compres la versión primun 😑😑😑😑 y para q pague entonces la ara tener un trigal malo. Lo peor comprando
Stop Messing with the app! by theoverachiever2
I’ve had this app for many years and as they update it seems to be less user-friendly. The most recent update caused the exercise name in workouts that are custom exercises to no longer be visible unless you start the workout and then click on the blank space. Please fix!
So far so good by Hugothere2
Took my money, deleted my workouts by Damo Wilmo
They changed the app so you now need a subscription to get custom workout, whereas before you just had to buy a one-off premium code. I just want my custom workouts - which I was already using - and none of the other premium crap. Now I can’t get them, and all my hard work is gone and they have my money.
Whatever features you like in this app, don’t count on them being there in the future.
Doesn’t work by Stick555
Paid for the premium but I still get pop ups telling me to upgrade to premium and then gives me a can’t fetch error message. Not sure why I am getting only the free features when I paid for the premium version
New navigation total fail and confusing by G8r mann
Loved the app because it was reliable and easy to quickly navigate. New nav is way too confusing and takes too many steps AND. images don’t load consistently so left with lots of white space. Thinking about moving on to another app
Money hungry app by OMSA32
I used to like this app before. But now It seems like all they care about is making money off you. The app used to be well structured you used to be able to choose what kind of workout you want whether you wanted to use weights or not. But now it seems like every time you try to open an option to workout you have to pay for it. WHERE ARE THE FREE WORKOUTS THAT I USED TO USE THAT WERE EFFECTIVE FOR ME AND WERE FREE OF CHARGE? This app is sinking because they are too concerned about making money off everyone that downloads the app. I wouldn’t be so mad if I didn’t like his app before but now it’s ridiculous how money hungry they have become. If I had 10 thumbs I would give it ten thumbs down.
this app is a con and a waste of money. by Wet_but_thirsty
waste of money. suckered me into paying 30$ to get the lower body workouts and let me tell you this app is dumb af. the workouts are randomly generated and make no sense. they dont give you an overview of what the plan is or anything. its just random exercises that pop up with little videos. no way to look at the entirety of the workout before you start. makes gathering necessary equipment difficult. this whole app is a con to get you to pay for it before you actually use it. my advice don’t bother, but if you wanna see what its about DO NOT PAY A CENT BEFORE YOU TRY A FEW WORKOUTS. they are reallly worthless.
False Sell by MDeike
I am looking for a product that gives me a pre made list already for the Fitness level I am trying to engage in. Other apps give me a day to day change of plans and helps me in preparing for the gym so I don’t have to waste time trying to program my own circuit. It looked like that was the case from the photos but it’s not. You still have to find everything. Waste of $30
Good variety by CopNY
Detail variety of work out options
Workout by esunset15
Best workout app!
I like it but buggy by k did
It’s a good app don’t get my wrong but the fact that it bugs out in the middle of a routine drives me crazy. I loose my workout when it bugs out.
Just beware by MollyJL4
You pay just to pay again. There should be some kind of free trial so you know what you’re getting into AT LEAST. Ridiculous waste of money.
Stole my money by Totes42
I had an issue with premium subscription. I was no longer able to use features that i had paid for. I had contacted tech support and after a few emails back and forth a solution was found. They restored my subscription and all is well. Problems happen and it is how the problem is dealt with that makes a good review worthy. Thank you to K.D. for ironing things out for me!!
Rip off. by Dimplechet
Don’t waste your $4 because even after spending $4 they want u to become subscribers for more money or app is no good...
Its a cool app to get you off your butt and on the move!!! by Big fella Dre
Since using the app I've dropped a total of 200+ lbs started at 477 ,down to 265 in one year!! Try it
Fix the calorie counter by Dfladge
What happened with the last update? I enter food and it disappears! Meals I eat earlier in the day just vanish or they seem to be hidden somewhere, or today when I put in a new entry it doesn’t log it at all.
this aspect of the app is pretty much no longer functional. Please fix it. Fix it now! Thank you
Do not buy this app. by Edward690
It restarted on me 5 times in the middle of my workout. Every time it restarted the timer and eliminated the weight and reps I had logged. Incredibly frustrating. This problem has been occurring for months now and the creators of the app have done nothing to fix it.
don’t buy! by Dr. DeMan
terrible app. to get anything worthwhile you have to subscribe even after paying to buy the app. the app is also not formatted to fit the SE or 5s screen, so text goes off the edge. also many things just don’t work - the meal plan quiz exits and does nothing. it’s also just horrible looking - so much overlapping text so you can’t read it. what a mess! wish IOS did refunds!
Disappointed by AhmedEssa07
I am really disappointed in this app. I had the free one and it was good. So I thought I’d buy the paid version thinking that I will benefit more but I was disappointed because there is not that much of a difference, in fact, if you want the real use of it you have to subscribe to a premium membership, which makes me wonder what’s the point of having a free and paid version when eventually you’ll end up subscribing to the premium which doesn’t make any sense to me
These engineers are terrible by MagikMSU
In each new version they remove features and make things less intuitive. In the latest version they made it more difficult to access custom workouts and they now call all exercise variations by the same name in your list. So if you have 3 biceps curl variations, you have to click in to see which is which. Find another app, this engineering team is garbage. If it’s one guy, which is my guess, he’s the worst UX and Tester on earth and is so Arrogant he refuses to have others test his product. If it’s a whole team they need to replace their SDETs.
Good by Jarizzle151
Please stop making this a social media platform by Freebrady101
I’ve used this app since 2014. I want to log my workouts and cardio, track my weight, and be able to look at a calendar to see how many times I’ve worked out this month. I don’t want to share this information, and trust me no one wants to know it but me. Please stop taking a good app and making it progressively worse.
Update is awful by Matty Stank
The newest update is causing me to delete this app. It is too focused on forcing someone to buy the app instead of simply using it to monitor weights and reps. I’ve used this app for a couple of years now and paid for the monthly at one point but didn’t see the utility. This update made it very unappealing and illogical to record workouts.
I liked the old version better. by Grimes,ca
It’s a little harder to drill down to exercises. Also, some pictures don’t match the label, ie underhand vs. overhand. I lost all my history when I switched phones so I’m checking out other apps. Also, no box jump equipment.
I don't like the update at all by vidicious
Worse interface and the workout list wastes WAY too much white space for app chrome ...
And oddball changes like having to dig deeper to get exercise history and graphs. And can't just move from weights to reps fields like in past version either. 😑
Latest update deleted all of my custom workouts by John/Jack/NakedSnake
Super freaking annoying how you guys screwed me over. Thanks.
Great app for workouts by Jonny blaze x 420
Use this app all the time at the gym. Very useful. Worth $0.99. Offers many different workouts
Total rip off!! by Kaylee Shaw
I downloaded because of what it advertised. It’s so stupid you get little to nothing paying the $3.99 and then you have to pay $30 for the stuff they asvierrised! Such a rip off and a complete waste of money
