  • Poor Customer Communication May 19, 2019

    By Disaaptiv
    I loved this app. You can sort exercises by trainer, type, length, and difficulty level. Super user friendly. I would look at a whole week in advance and plan my workouts. Recently, they pulled ALL my favorite classes and my two favorite trainers. They did not give notice. I finally found out by going out to their FB page. I made sure every workout I left a review about the class and what I thought about the trainer. If they were truly meeting the needs of their clientele, then they would have seen that some of us primarily only used what they pulled. The sad thing is they have no other similar classes or the type of trainers I learned to love. Also, their customer service is lacking. They say you can email for help. I emailed due to technical issues. That was yesterday and I am still waiting to hear back and it was “during hours”. When you are working out, most people have only so much time. If you can’t use the app due to technical issues and have to wait days to resolve, that pretty much squelches that workout plan. I would hope Aaptiv would be more responsive to their users technical issues as well as notify them regarding changes to the program. I signed up for the old Aaptiv. I feel I should be able to get my money back as this is not the program I signed up for.

    In the age of Covid an audio fitness app is practically essential! Gyms are closed and equipment is scarce. With Aaptiv I basically have a personal trainer in my pocket. Even better, I don't have to spend my home workout time starting at a tiny screen. I stare at enough screens all day. My Aaptiv workout is my little break from screens. My only complaint is that the cues could be better sometimes. But it's manageable and I always get a good workout anyway.

  • The best fitness app out there! Jan 20, 2018

    By hawc929
    I am a long time runner (over 40 yrs) and Ironman Triathlete. I train a LOT at swimming, biking and running. And I get bored when I have to train so much. I also work full time and then some and I live in the Northwest where it snows, rains and ices up a lot, so a lot of my workouts are indoors before I go to work. This app has breathed new life and motivation in to me. The trainers are amazing, the sound tracks are amazing and the convenience is amazing. Not to mention I am working harder than if I had to do these workouts on my own. The treadmill and strength combined workouts allow me to be more efficient as I not only get is speed work, but some serious muscle work. I have used several other apps to include Peloton (video based) and love this one so much more. The variety for different types of workouts is fantastic. And now that I can get it on my Apple Watch too, possibilities are endless. Many thanks to all the trainers for keeping me strong and motivated and for sounding so dedicated to the audience. Love the encouragement and the pushing to the next level. I actually want to even get up earlier so I can have Ben in my ear while I pound the pedals on my Triathlon bike on the trainer. Keep up the great work!

    Great app. In my 2nd subscription year. Feel it is expensive for AUD$143 but I do use it enough to justify the cost. Exercises are good although the 'how to' images/videos are randomly sequenced when doing a program and seldom marry up with the audio. Seems simple enough for the trainer to do.

  • Recent changes disappointing May 3, 2019

    By atakahashi
    When I initially tried the app, I was pleasantly surprised. Having just audio to rely on for your training...I was skeptical since I wasn’t sure how you could vocalize transitions during training but found it was easy to follow. They had great trainers as well. HOWEVER, 3 days ago, the app suddenly deleted a whole slew of content without any notice (AAPTIV says they sent out a member wide email weeks ago, but I never received this) In addition, I was in the midst of a training program - so I open the app this week to find that my progression is also gone. AAPTIV should have found a workaround for existing subscribers currently doing a training program. In addition, member communication should have been done within the app prior to deletion. AAPTIV definitely messed up with this content “update”. I wrote in to explain the situation and the only response after saying how they botched this was “We are sorry to see you go but wish you luck”. They are missing the entire point of this exercise. AAPTIV has an active member base; I saw that quite a few members were complaining about the same thing - AAPTIV should learn how to better communicate and FIX this type of situation where CONTENT is paramount. I’m disappointed they don’t seem to care about soliciting feedback. I will be cancelling my subscription and trying out the GO audio fitness app instead from now on. I see their ratings are good...I wish AAPTIV “well”

  • Where has all the good music gone? Jan 23, 2021

    By Gabby Knafler
    I have been using Aaptiv for about 3 years, and it used to be awesome! The music matched the workout perfectly. Now, the music is boring, repeated from workout to workout, and doesn't match the intensity of the workout. It seems like there are more frills now with the videos but the quality of the foundation has decreased. I will end my annual renewal once this year's subscription is over.

  • The #1 audio fitness app has lost its value May 9, 2019

    By Kate Corny
    Perfect app when you have no time to plan, pick a workout and go.....until they remove a ton of good content and replace it with all entry level workouts, remove challenging race training programs, remove rowing and boxing programs, and seem to be moving away from where their initial value was established. I recently changed my subscription from monthly to annual due to my excitement and high satisfaction with Aaptiv. Shortly after doing this, the app started to crash when I was searching for workouts and after starting a running program in addition to establishing my own schedule with boxing, rowing, indoor cycle, and strength / core- most of the great workouts disappeared. I was told an email was sent to me, which I have not been able to locate. When I followed the link in response to my inquiry, I received a very vague response commenting on how they were striving for high quality and had to remove content in order to meet their customer feedback. All of the feedback I sent to until this occurred had been great. When reading most recent reviews, it appears what occurred to me occurred to several users. As a loyal user who is strongly considering ending my membership and switching over to a competitor, I would consider alternatives and read additional reviews before proceeding.

    I've used this for 2 years and today was my last day as it's just gone downhill. I originally bought it for the simplicity of the program- workouts by category with countdown timer. I could download workouts for when I knew I'd be offline for later use. I use both at home and during travel so liked the simple interface. They have added images of people doing exercises and removed the countdown clock. I just realized this is expensive and better options exist now.

    Love me some Aaptiv! Way cheaper than a gym! Ceasar and Jade's yoga sessions are my fave. I would like to see the app give credit to artists within the workout. Not an artist myself but they use good music and I'd like to find the music after my workout. Would also like it if they could make workout sessions over 50+ minutes. K, thanks, byee.

    I love the running coaching available. I'm definitely not a gym rat. 🙃 however, I love to run outdoors ... I now live in a colder climate where a treadmill is my best winter option. I am not a fan of snow cleats at all.... Ackeem has a coaching style that is reminiscent of my younger days as an athlete. Running on a treadmill is soooooo boring, so I'm happy to have that mix of music and reminder to keep up my form and pace. I like a coach that pushes me to do more every day!

  • This App is very motivational and keeps me going Mar 27, 2018

    By Bizzecka
    I love this App, I love the idea of a trainer in my ear pushing me because that’s what I need when I work out so this app is great in that respect and with all the intensity levels etc. I never get bored or tired or feel like I am doing the same old thing every time I work out. What would make this App a 5 star is on some of the workouts, especially the core workouts even though they explain the exercise in as much detail as possible, sometimes I still don’t feel like I am doing it correctly so I have to pause the workout look it up online or go back 30 seconds to really listen to how to perform the exercise. If there was a way to have a slide showing how to do the exercise where the trainers picture is at, that would be helpful for us visual learners. SWORKIT shows you how to do the exercise but lacks what this App brings to the table in terms of different types and number of workouts coupled with a personal trainer pushing you and giving motivation. If that was added to this I don’t even think it could be any better. I hope that is something that is added in the future so that way at the end of each workout you can feel like you did it right and got the most out of it! All in all I really like this and feel it is worth the purchase!💪🏽

  • Motivational Aug 22, 2018

    By Cfinndean
    I have always loathed cardio, and now all of a sudden I’m two months into running outside all the time—even waking up at 5:30 to get it in, yoga mornings, doing HIITs....constantly thinking about when I can fit in an Aaptiv class in my day.... Like who even am I? Haha. Turns out I just needed that pusher, that teacher, that motivation and inspiration in my ear. And the trainers at Aaptiv are that for me and I’m so grateful they share their awesomeness with me! And it takes the hard work out of working out....I used to stress all the time about what workout I should do, which moves, how long, interval timing, then also the playlist....and AAPTIV takes care of all that. I pick a session based on what I want, and I don’t have to pick moves, I don’t have to set a interval timer, don’t have to watch the clock, don’t have to pick out a play list that matches my tempo or mood, etc etc...I just put my headphones in, chose a program, and go! Aaptiv literally takes care of the rest, so I can focus on giving my best to the workout. This app has seriously been life changing for me. And I never write reviews unless smitten with something!! AAPTIV I LOVE YOU!

  • 4.5 Stars Sep 22, 2017

    By MamaHoffmaninthegym
    Love this app. and alternate between/combine this and beach body on demand. I love this because it really allows you to still get a workout in even if you don't have a ton of time. Waiting for water to boil or the oven to preheat for dinner? That's a solid 10 minutes and there are tons of workouts you can choose to fit that time. Having trouble winding down for bed? Turn on a 5 minute bedtime yoga series or meditation. Want to start jogging, but need some structure or motivation? There are workouts for that (from walking a mile all the way up to marathon training). My only complaint is that I wish there were more filtering options. For example, today I would like to do a lower body or glut workout that's about 20 minutes long. I can sort all of the strength training workouts that are about that long, but from there have to search through the dozens available to find the ones that focus on lower body. Not a big deal, but would love to be able to dial it in and make it even easier!

  • More information please Jan 5, 2019

    By Seasick Sailor
    First off, I’d like to say that I love this app and the encouragement that the trainers provide. The music is spot on as well. And the range of difficulty seems to be appropriate also. However; I am a complete neophyte when it comes to workout routines so maybe it’s just me: I don’t understand many of the positions and exercises that the trainers want us to do. They do make an effort to describe the positions but the descriptions go by too fast and, frequently, they are given names that we are somehow supposed to already know. Now I could live with this by doing some other exercises that might be close to the one described by the trainer but I’d prefer to do them as described. This brings up my second issue with the app. There is no easy way to provide feedback to the trainers that gets a response. Sure, at the end of each workout one can rate it and provide feedback, which I frequently do. But after a month I’ve never received any response to my questions and concerns. Given that, there is no easy way to contact the trainers to ask questions, etc. There’s not even a link to contact customer support. I did get an email address for customer support from an email that they sent me asking me to rate this app. I’ve asked numerous times for them to include some sort of graphic or pictures in the specific workouts, especially those for beginners, to guide us. No response.....

  • Good but workout programs/series changed in the middle of it... Jul 31, 2019

    By Aj738
    BEWARE: Before purchasing this app make sure you read the user agreement and know what you are signing up for. Having seen so many ads for a free trial period I was under the impression this was automatic. IT IS NOT. If you want a free trial period make sure you explicitly pick a free trial period membership. As for the app itself, the workouts and concepts are really good, engaging, and motivating. That being said I recently started one of the progression series but part of the way through the series reset and completely changed what workouts were a part of it. After reading some other reviews this appears to have happened to several other people when AAPTIV went through a major change, however this just happened to me and I’ve only had the app for about a week (after these changed supposedly occurred). I’m now concerned this will be a reoccurring theme and cancel out one of the main reasons I decided to try it out. With the progressions, I also wish there was an option to add the whole thing to your calendar/coach rather than individual workouts. It would make it much easier to follow and stay on top of. Overall though, the concept is great and the workouts individually are great.

  • Jan 5, 2021

    By Rochelle Olivera
    I liked the program approach and this app has a lot of potential, but the exercises have no or little visual guidance. In some cases, the picture was actually different than the exercise described. It's too challenging to follow just voice guidance. I would try this app again in the future if the visual quality improves. I would prefer fewer exercise options but with video/ picture guides improved.

  • Horrible customer service Nov 28, 2017

    By Becca will
    While the actual app is pretty good, the customer service is horrible. I got a month free, and liked the different styles and music. I sustained a back injury at work and haven’t been able to work out for quite some time, I just let my month trial end and thought that was it. Until I looked at my bank statement that said I was charged 9.99 THREE MONTHS AFTER my free trial ended. I contacted customer service, which they then just sent an automated response saying it was resolved because it was on an Apple phone. I had to screenshot that my account wasn’t active to make them respond again, saying they would take care of it. 2 weeks later, no refund. I contact them again and get a response saying they escalated my request for special attention and someone would be in touch shortly....24 hours ago. The app is convenient, but not worth the hassle. (I know it’s only $10, but to charge me 3 months AFTER I stopped using the app is ridiculous)

  • Beware Sep 9, 2017

    By Runnergirl678
    Like "hatethisapp99%" states you will continue to be billed. Was part of a health challenge that gave you a free month, a week into the FREE month I was billed 9.99, contacted them and they reversed the charge and fixed the issue. Made sure to turn off auto renew in iTunes before end of my month, they billed again. Contacted them and they responded with sending me instructions how to cancel via iTunes, sent them proof that the subscription was expired and not renewed. Contact Apple who stated it was cancelled on their end and asked what my bank info stated, I said Aaptiv, they let me know that if my apple acct charged me it would say Apple/iTunes not Aaptiv on my bank transactions and that the charge came directly from Aaptiv. Bottom line don't provide them your billing info and if you do sign up make sure to use a reloadable prepaid card that they can't charge again. TWO stars because the app seems like a good concept but their billing and customer service are horrible.

  • Used to be my absolute favorite training app Jul 29, 2019

    By lanaho
    Aaptiv played a huge role in me getting in shape last year. Particularly Meg’s cross train to 5K program. Now that Meg and Kenta aren’t with Aaptiv, and that the majority of their workouts were deleted, I find this app to be lacking. They also deleted the boxing and rowing workouts from the app entirely. The trainers who are currently with Aaptiv are, I’m sure, great, but it’s a huge bummer when you develop a “relationship” to a trainer’s particular motivational style and workout type and then they’re gone, with little-to-no advance notice or communication from the app. Not only are there fewer individual workouts, they have less than half the programs (workout collections to train for a particular thing) as before, and the programs they do have are generally just cobbled-together collections from existing workouts. This results in disjointed programs that don’t really build on each other; essentially it’s just a list of various workouts (of annoyingly various fitness levels) that don’t have much cohesion. Unfortunately, after being a subscriber for years, I’m cancelling now that I can’t get what I want from this app anymore. Thanks for the good times Aaptiv.

  • Terrible support! Feb 29, 2020

    By rumplestilskin3
    I signed up got the trial and have tried many, many times over several days to simply log in either through Facebook or using email and password. I’ve successfully reset my password many times and still can’t log in. I have emailed customer support and got no response. I finally found a phone number for customer support and called and of course no one answered. I had to call and leave many messages before I finally got an email telling me to update the Aaptiv app. I had already deleted and reinstalled the app many times in an effort to successfully log in so the app was already updated. The aaptiv site indicates the schedule for chat availability, but it is false as there is no chat available during these times. I can’t stress the frustration of simply trying to log in after giving my credit card info and setting up an account. I’ll bet they will be very efficient about charging my credit card though even though I have never once been able to successfully log-in. I can’t even log in in order to cancel my subscription. Save yourself the frustration and find another fitness app.
