New year new me by Therealrello
The start of 2018 has been amazing this far when it comes to staying fit. I couldn’t have done it effectively without Fitness Buddy! It changed my life
Costs more money by Rob Haze
To get recipes, more money.. to get a workout plan, more money. This app has recurring fees and tries to extract as much money as it can with minimum workout benefits.
Good free. Great if purchase by Fqrt
Free version is pretty good. I have tried a few and this has been by far the best.
There’s one really annoying issue by curreylo
So it’s a well designed app and I like it except for one thing that’s really bothering me. The rest feature between sets weirdly goes off and is super finicky, I wish there was a feature to switch it off honestly or at least turn of the beep or setting that quiets my music when it goes off. Like i wanna use this app but that little bug or feature really gets me.
Waste. by tmgaunttjr
I wasted $3 purchasing this app and $30 signing up for the subscription(the sign up made it seem like they were billing me $2.50 monthly but billed me for the entire year). This is a very basic workout app. I have to type in all my own exercises because they do not have the basic exercises in the system, i.e. basic pull-ups, dumbbell lateral raises, upright cable rows, etc. Even the full workouts are very basic and though you inform the app what you are looking to do(build muscle, lose fat, maintain), it does not offer any type of recommendations or plan to assist you.
Loving this app by Miyah baby
This app is truly a great one. I love all the different combos of excercise that are available. I also love how it tracks your steps in a day
Great App 👍🏾👍🏾 by slimsg35
They fixed it! by L1VEL1KENO1ELSE
The app works so much better after the last update. Thanks for the fix! Now I can continue grinding with my Fitness Buddy in my pocket
Great app for logging workout routines by 3-1=2
Love this app for designing a workout and then logging my performance. It also times the workout to help make sure I get some cardio benefit as well.
Aggravating by zbak007
Spend money to buy the app just to find out I have to upgrade to get more.
Update request by Apikey2
Love the app but can you remove the feature where it automatically checks the “Log” box after I enter a new weight or number of reps? I’ll check it when I’m done actually done. Sometimes I want to enter new weights before I complete the exercise.
Very useful by T-Bone the dog
I’m getting definition finally
This app helped me
So-so by Aubshubba
Search feature is broken and constantly asked to buy a subscription for an app I’ve already paid for.
Crashes all the time by RyanS91111111
I have used this app for two years now. I love it. It records my work outs perfectly. But slowly over the years it has gotten worse at crashing. It is literally the only application that crashes on my phone. Even after completing wiping my phone. Even after getting a new phone. This app continues to crash all the time. It is also the only app that I have ever paid for. So for $30 I am very disappointed. Please help. It is useless now.
Scam by CalvinS.
Do not purchase this app.. It will ask you to subscribe to their monthly plan for more money to use the food planning part of the app
Apple Watch??? by Bald hash
It would be perfect if it could sync with my Apple Watch.
Fitness Bubby by Mrs browser
Love this app, will pass it to my friends
Great App, but some glitches by Ktana8
UPDATE: Thanks for the quick fix! Star rating back up to 5!
Love your app and have been using it for years. But for the past couple months, I can no longer check my exercise past/progress (charts, etc) when I click on an exercise in the custom workout setting, nor will it show any tutorial on how to do the exercise. I’ve tried loading new exercises and reloading the ones already saved in my custom workouts, but the problem is still there. I use this feature a lot, so would love to see a fix!
Great site by Malia 96706
Great site to stay in shape with.
Disappointed in service by C_Lam
I got a nice notification to save 70% of yearly subscription of 29.99 but when I sign up I was charged full price even when I accepted the notification to save 70%. Email support no response wth!!
Truly helpful by Apoorva Bhatt
Few bug fixes and it could rule the roost
Luv this app! by DuffsterG
I use this app all the time. I like how it allows me to develop my own custom programs. And if I don’t feel like coming up with my own, there are plenty to choose from. I would like to see them develop more female oriented metabolic functional movement programs for serious athletes.
Worse every day by StuTheMeatMan
This app is suffering from performance issues over the last year
Broken permissions by David Apple ID
App is broken. Requests more permissions than I'm willing or even physically able to grant. I do not want the app, or even my iPhone, directly tracking my step count or anything and none of that is required for me to view weight lifting exercises for specific muscles, which is why I bought the app! I want a full refund. Privacy creep is awful.
Love this app but lately it’s been crashing badly by Stef Blaze
The app is awesome! I have the premium version... unfortunately, until the issues with the app continuously crashing gets fixed I will have to give it one star!!! It’s a serious problem when I’m in the middle of my workout and I can’t get back into my workout because the app crashed so I have to restart.
Support is almost nonexistent by BackOnTheBike50
Steer clear of this app/company. Downloaded and purchased Premium membership the same day. I accidentally deleted app while cleaning out folder. No biggie I THOUGHT. I re-downloaded the same night under the same login/email. Premium options were gone as if I was a basic user.
I made MULTIPLE attempts to contact support via online “Help Desk” submissions. Unlike ALL OTHER online help supports I have utilized - they do not generate ANYTHING that is emailed back to you showing they received an online submission and are looking into whatever your issue is. I made 3 more submissions online throughout the week. FIVE DAYS LATER I received an email from Natalie Silver asking for the email I signed up with which WAS in ALL the “Help Desk” submissions I made.
I responded with requested info and NEVER heard back via multiple attempts within the direct email response chain NOR by yet MORE submissions using their online “Help Desk.”
After reaching out to Apple Support I was refunded my purchase.
Really, REALLY disappointed.
Core bug there by Adel Eid Youssef
I wanted to give this app the max rating but one issue made it useless at least for me with iPhoneX. When you see workout list and you press start workout you see another screen with exercise name and you can record sets and weight but if you want recall how exactly the exercise is done it doesn’t show video you have to remember the training name and how exactly done before you click start workout ... schedule of programs also very lose not as real Trainer can do in daily basis until you advance , good work though
Great when functioning properly. by jeffitz
With the exception of the constant subscription nagging (which I don’t need), I love Fitness Buddy when it’s working properly. Can’t view exercise examples during a custom workout for the last two versions. Seems to me like that fix should be a priority instead of making sure the nag screens work properly.
Lost the simplicity of a simple tracker by KevAtl24
This used to be a great tracking app that showed the basic exercises and you could easily build your own routines. The changes made make it look more appealing and I’m sure the features are great for people looking to buy a program, but it’s lost its core functions and is terrible for customizing your own workouts.
Poor updates by Tomomfp
Specific problems that need to be addressed:
* During a workout I can no longer tap on an exercise to see/review how to do it, or access the info on muscles targeted and personal history. This is critical for those of us trying to target (or avoid) certain muscles after an injury. This has been broken on the last two updates.
* Need a way to turn off the rest interval/timer alarm feature. I don’t use it, and it’s very annoying to have my phone making random sounds at the gym EVEN THOUGH MY PHONE IS MUTED.
In general this app, which I once would have rated four stars, has become more difficult to use since its major UI redesign. It’s bloated with social media connections which, while I’m sure are helpful for some users, I will never use—it would be nice to have a setting to opt out of having to constantly click past them.
The app is much harder to use, and extremely non-intuitive.
But I will admit the colors are much more attractive since the redesign.
Works. by African-er
Simple to the point. It works.
Why does this app needs location accuracy? by Vijay09
Why do this app need location service to provide fitness exercises?
With our providing this information this won’t let me use the app. So I am deleting this app.
Previously this didn’t had that option.
Fitness Buddy by Dixie Normos
Is an awesome workout app
Great for tracking your progress
Still room for improvement by Ajesusb
Although the app had great features like meal plans and customized workout plans, when it comes to the workout plans there is room for improvement. The plans given are mostly body weight exercises. My suggestion is to do a questionnaire that will determine if either body exercises or gym based exercises (with equipment) best suit your particular preference. The. Based on that formulate a workout plan. If this upgrade were to happen it would really take the app to a whole new level.
Got rid of their one good feature. by EvansBlue.CF
The graph that tracks your reps and weight is no more. This makes this app worth a hell of a lot less to me.
Just what I need by Bulldog640
The app has everything I need to keep my fitness schedule and goals in one place. Highly recommended!!!
Ridiculous by atl-troy
I paid for this app and immediately after I opened it for the first time begin asking me to pay an additional subscription fee. How incredibly lame.
Food log all over the place by KBernardP
Great exercises, so-so recipes with crazy ingredient ratios (i.e. more milk and breadcrumbs in the turkey meatloaf than there is turkey), but what I can’t stand about it is that it doesn’t sync with my apple watch workouts. I suddenly need to change over to their platform and start over.
Data cannot be exported. If you are working with a trainer, good luck getting printouts of your meal plan and exercises. They will have to get the app, too.
I asked for a subscription refund after four days. No word on whether or not I blew $40.
Too Intrusive by Kobus 0202
When I first got the app it was just a helpful guide on which exercises I needed, and life was good.
Now, you can’t get to the guide without giving the app access to everything, logging in, have reminders set etc.
Please don’t spoil the app by forcing things on me I don’t need or want.
I was happy with just the simple guides...
LOVED this app - now it’s buggy and slow by JeckoKid
I have an iPhone 8 with the latest operating system and the latest version of this app, yet even on my fiber optic home internet fitness buddy is painfully slow and frequently crashes.
At the gym for lunch, I have had to completely give up using it because the load times for its custom workouts take several minutes (10 whole minutes one time!), and the app has to stay open for the workout to load.
Paying 24.99 a year for this app simply is not worth it - I deleted and re-downloaded, and have reached out to support, but neither have helped me out at all.
Requires location services enabled by SA_Bach
I used to love this app - now it won’t let me login unless I enable location services.
I just use this for tracking weight training so there’s no benefit to me for enabling the service. Disappointing
Almost by TechieGuy
Very good at tracking work outs data
Entry has never been so easy
Very easy to add rest intervals
Graphs to see your workload
Great preloaded workouts
Latest versions prevents you from checking your workload during a workout. Before you could check the previous workload during a workout. Now you can’t
No integration into MyFitnessPal
No way of sharing workout plans
No way to turn off up-selling.
Almost perfect. by Orlandeezee
Make it compatible with Apple Watch. Especially the heart rate monitoring.
Awesome app by Ayoooooooooooooo
I use this app everyday. Tons of great workouts and great to keep organized.
Buy the app to buy apps? by Gleep74
Crap....when you buy this app it’s like dealing with a middle man who can put you in touch with someone that can maybe help you.....but you have to pay to find out.....what a waste of money
REALLY by Johnny09112
Even with the plus version there are pop ups to go premium not what I was expecting when I paid for the app.
“Steps” is not a workout by AppleFan 1015
They keep messing with this app. I do not consider daily “steps” a workout. This throws off my tracking ability of actual workouts. They need to give you a way to turn this off, it is worthless.
