    When it’s 7am and time for your first cup of coffee, and that triggers your craving, why not try sweating it out instead? Aaptiv has a great collection of audio workouts that take your mind off the habit, in just 30 minutes you won’t even remember you wanted a cigarette.

    It's important to exercise as much as you can within the first 3 or 4 months of pregnancy. Doing so will help make things easier as your pregnancy progresses. This fitness app allows you to workout at your own pace, with thousands of workouts to choose from.

    This app has over 2,500 sessions on it, which are all replicated on studio classes you'd find in a gym. They're audio only so all you need are some headphones to listen to the instructions while you follow them.

    Rushing into any sort of workout without at least a 10-minutes warmup is a recipe for disaster. The risk of injury can be avoided by committing to some stretching. Aaptiv will offer some pretty good ideas in this department.

    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.

    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.
  • Aaptiv Changed Everything! Jul 15, 2020

    By StacyRuns
    I can’t say enough good things about Aaptiv. I used to just search for workouts online or simply make it up as I went at the gym. Once I got Aaptiv, my workouts were so much more focused and effective. I love the diversity of types of workouts (treadmill, outdoor running, elliptical, strength, stretching, and so much more!!) so I can have plenty of options for my mood or my training plan. My FAVORITE thing about Aaptiv is the style of having a coach/trainer that fully planned and recorded a workout guide for you. Having someone in my ear giving my advice and motivation feels awesome. Some workout apps I’ve used in the past just have an exercise and a timer and maybe halfway through would say “keep going!” But having a real human coaching you through the whole thing is so helpful. It’s like the experience of a group fitness class or personal trainer but on your own time and having it to yourself. Aaptiv has made me a much better runner and helped me increase my fitness goals over time. I’ve been using it for years and love it just as much now as I did at the start. Thank you Aaptiv!!

    I love love love Aaptiv! The coaches are amazing, the variety is always fresh, it's easy to use, and if you want to not think but just do automatically, there's a coach with daily recommendations based on your likes and goals, just press play! Run, weights, stretch..perfect for consistency!! It's the best- I'm working full-time and raising 2 kids, so it's the best thing since I can take this anywhere and do anytime.. also yoga and meditation are great for keeping calm and present, stress mgmt.
  • 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”
  • Better than peloton, great for audio only Apr 26, 2021

    By EditorKatie
    Update to my review: I hate what they’ve done. While in theory it sounds nice to be able to pick our own music, my favorite workouts were the ones the trainers timed to the music—particularly Jon’s runs. He timed the sprints and other challenges to the drops and to the beat. Now the songs don’t line up at all, and it is much less enjoyable. Disappointed. Original review: I have been using Aaptiv for almost a year now. I tried a month of one peloton also, and I decided to stick with Aaptiv because of the variety and number of workouts and the trainers (my favorites are Jon, Kenta, Aakim, and Casey). I use outdoor running, treadmill, and strength workouts. Also, Peloton had a lot more explicit music, which I didn’t want and had no way of turning off (if I remember correctly). Aaptiv has some video workouts, but I rarely use them and find that the audio cues are very well done. I rarely look at the video moves during an audio workout, but if I did it WOULD be nice if the video moves would cycle through during the workout to match the audio. REQUEST for developers: I’d like to be able to sort and filter through my saved, categorized workouts. For instance, I have 30+ workouts saved in my personal Running category, and I’d like to be able to sort by length of workout, intensity, trainer—but especially by length of workout. Thanks!

    Doesn't really feel like a "personal trainer" app. It's got good workouts, but you have to choose a plan and measure your own progress. There is way to put data in about your weight, or goals, and there is no feedback or tailoring of exercises based on your abilities.
  • 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.....

  • 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!💪🏽
  • 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.

    The new option to choose your music is fine, but the music is so loud it drowns out the trainer. There is no way to adjust this and the whole point of this app is being able to listen to what they have to tell you.
  • Sep 9, 2021

    By Matt Masten
    I have no idea who thought the music system you are using is a good idea, but it sucks. Nice concept horrible execution. It is clear that the people in charge of making the music change does not actually use the product. Please at least make it so I can have no music and just the trainers voice. Or at best put in an option to use the original audio. The developer needs to take a step back and listen to the many many complaints or they are going to lose at least 1 customer for sure. UPDATE: when i follow those directions it still plays music even though i selected voice only. this may be a bug if it starts working i will update again and revise my rating

    More focus on you to get more members than upgrading their app, there is no body metrics, for you to control your progress. Work outs are great but their App could be a lot better.
  • 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.
  • Jun 8, 2021

    By Christy Baker
    This use to be my FAVORITE things, HOWEVER, ever since they changed the music, it is so glitchy I no longer use it even though I paid for a yearly subscription, so dissapointing. I want to listen to the original music that was on the workout, but on many workouts i used to love, this isn't listed as an option anymore. And when it is, the music is too loud without the option to change the volume and it isn't actually playing the original soundtracks like it says it is! PLEASE FIX THIS APP.
  • Jun 13, 2021

    By Jimmy Pailin
    The very bad reviews are being paid very close attention by possible new users. They all seem about the music. I'll be focusing on that during my trial. The reviews don't give me much hope. (It seems the devs don't really care. A rote and poor response to complaints give me even less hope.)
  • Aug 15, 2021

    By MJ Torres
    I signed up for a 7-day free trial. The first time I opened the app to try an exercise session it won't let me do it saying I have to pay a year's subscription. Unethical and unprofessional! RESPONSE TO DEVELOPER: I don't yet have a subscription. This was supposed to be a 7-day free trial.
  • Nov 29, 2019

    By Maria McCoy
    I would give this app a zero if I could. I participated in a free trial and canceled during my trial (October 14th). Today (November 29th) I was charged $99.00. I logged into the account to see that it was active again- I never logged back in after I canceled in October. I requested a full refund only to be told one would not be issued- they will only give you a 50% refund OR switch you to the mothly plan and refund you $85. Either way, you do not get a full refund. DONT USE THIS APP!!!!!!!!!
  • 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!

  • Best fitness app Oct 19, 2017

    By Prixbix
    By far the best fitness app I've ever encountered and with each update it just gets better and better. I literally can't shut up about this app and at least 5 friends and family members have downloaded it because of my fervent endorsement! Trust me when I say that I cannot be bothered to leave reviews (this is actually the first ever review I've ever left for an app) but Aaptiv definitely deserves it. I also never stick to a fitness app for longer than a month and I have been using this for 2 years now. Great workouts with great music and amazing trainers! I work out at a gym and a personal trainer has literally been chasing me to be his client for months but little does he know I have 10+ personal trainers telling me what to do through my headphones as I'm telling him I'm not interested! I absolutely loved the last update where you can search for a workout and I'm also loving the filters, it has greatly improved the usability of the app. Whoever is in charge of app development there should be given a raise and Christmas bonus because he/she is nailing it! Shout out to my favourite trainers: Kelly, Meghan and Rochelle your workouts rock!
  • Motivates me to workout more Aug 4, 2018

    By PotakuCat
    I’m usually skeptical of instagram ads, but after trying Aaptiv out I’m seriously hooked. I’m a runner and used to be an avid, amateur weight lifter but I’d been going to the barbell less and less due to the knee and back injuries it gave me. Since I’m trying to gain back strength, I appreciate the simplicity and emphasis on proper form in Aaptiv workouts, sans-equipment. I started out with a sub-10 min workout to test waters but after crushing that, what I thought would be 10-minutes quickly became a 40-minute workout because the workouts are so addicting. Switching instructors, music-tastes, and exercises made the long workout exciting, and crushing them one by one felt rewarding. It is also easier for me to remember which moves worked and which didn’t so if I ever don’t have Aaptiv, I can still pull together a tough workout for myself. I like how it’s audio and not video so I can focus on what I’m feeling— rather than a screen to copy the moves of (and a distracting attractive teacher). Plus, it’s way way way cheaper than a gym membership + gas money.

  • I’m in love Apr 19, 2018

    By $AMBER$
    So first off, I’m the person that balks at dropping $1.99 on an app, so I put a LOT of thought into spending the money for this. I took advantage of the free month trial and decided that I wanted to continue. I really love using this. I am not huge in classes, and most definitely can not afford a trainer. I love going to the gym as opposed to working out at home, so being able to just put on headphones and listen to someone talk you through everything is so great. I love the variety of exercises, levels (beginner, intermediate, and advanced) and the different amounts of time for each one. It’s highly customizable to fit your schedule and life. It pushes me much better than I can push myself. And it keeps you going. When I would do things on my own, I’d take longer pauses, take time to determine what to do next, or have to look up a plan. Here, it’s all audio, so you just do what they tell you. There’s even a fairly broad range of music. I’ve only been using it for about a month following the trial period, but I’m very glad I made the investment.
  • 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!
  • 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”
  • Better than peloton, great for audio only Apr 26, 2021

    By EditorKatie
    Update to my review: I hate what they’ve done. While in theory it sounds nice to be able to pick our own music, my favorite workouts were the ones the trainers timed to the music—particularly Jon’s runs. He timed the sprints and other challenges to the drops and to the beat. Now the songs don’t line up at all, and it is much less enjoyable. Disappointed. Original review: I have been using Aaptiv for almost a year now. I tried a month of one peloton also, and I decided to stick with Aaptiv because of the variety and number of workouts and the trainers (my favorites are Jon, Kenta, Aakim, and Casey). I use outdoor running, treadmill, and strength workouts. Also, Peloton had a lot more explicit music, which I didn’t want and had no way of turning off (if I remember correctly). Aaptiv has some video workouts, but I rarely use them and find that the audio cues are very well done. I rarely look at the video moves during an audio workout, but if I did it WOULD be nice if the video moves would cycle through during the workout to match the audio. REQUEST for developers: I’d like to be able to sort and filter through my saved, categorized workouts. For instance, I have 30+ workouts saved in my personal Running category, and I’d like to be able to sort by length of workout, intensity, trainer—but especially by length of workout. Thanks!

    Doesn't really feel like a "personal trainer" app. It's got good workouts, but you have to choose a plan and measure your own progress. There is way to put data in about your weight, or goals, and there is no feedback or tailoring of exercises based on your abilities.
  • 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.

    Update : Gave it 1 more star back do to new active sync feature which is nice for visual at home workouts, but active sync lags between switching moves. I 2nd Christy Bakers review on here. Prev review: with music customization, music is too loud over trainer & not all workouts have original audio.have a few workouts in my faves that I repeat often & doesn't feel the same when it's a tempo run or you have to jog during a chorus but music doesn't match up to what it was originally recorded to.
  • Aaptiv where ya at? Oct 1, 2021

    By Louis9333
    So I’ve been a loyal Aaptiv member for 4 years now and experienced what many other years stated in their reviews three years ago with the massive data wipe. I was in the midst of their half marathon training program and one morning I woke up to do another workout and everything was gone. To say I was furious was an understatement. Since then they’ve revamped the app and brought back the half marathon training program among many others. The music choices for workouts feature is nice but I find that the songs don’t align with the workouts anymore and sometimes either the music is too loud or the trainer is too loud making me pause the workout and play with the finicky volume adjustments for both only to then have to pause again to re-adjust it with the next song. Further, not every workout is compatible with the Apple Watch due to licensing agreements…..somewhat of another let down. The trainers are phenomenal but the app quality seems to be decreasing the longer I’m a subscriber. I would opt to pay more for better/more refined features and to have the ability of every workout available on my Apple Watch. Can’t say I enjoy taking my phone on 8+ mile runs….
  • they deleted vast majority of content: DONT JOIN May 30, 2019

    By TRBerkeley
    Update: it looks like aaptiv is working to replace some content. But the best trainers are gone, there is little variety now and i have so much negative emotion towards this company that I get angry using the app. This was my go to on a daily basis. I told everyone about it. Now i am using some other apps and realizing they are better, more about actually improving my workout quality rather than being “all levels” and with terrible music. Even more upsetting is NO updates from the company and when i tried to sign up for FB page, NOTHING, no response. I have used this app for three years! Nice way to treat a loyal customer. My earlier post (before finding ClassPass GO, with awesome rowing and cycling workouts): I went to gym today and just rowed on my own, missing the rowing workouts like mad. I looked for a kelly ride and saw you deleted ALL but 1 of her bike rides. What is going on??? We paid for a year in advance to have you just delete content. The best trainers, the best workouts. Why??? There is so much competition that will get my money when subscription comes back around. We members were your best advertisers and you screwed us
  • Audio led workouts leave you wondering... Dec 28, 2020

    By Pony zamboni
    This app was recommended to me so I tried it and paid for it. The trial period is only 7 days so I’m surprised they get new users at all. I would not have tried it post trial except my workout buddy uses it. The exercises are audio only with short videos to teach you the moves. HOWEVER the videos don’t match the workouts. I did side lunges to match the video instructions but then heard a cue to start the next move: side lunges! I discovered the next round that it was side squats but as a beginner didn’t know exactly how that should work. Some videos are missing and some don’t match. Example: video instructions were for standard sit-up but the audio prompted lay flat, sit up, fold to touch toes. THE MUSIC does not match the reps. This bothers me immensely and the beat is the reason to work out to music. I expect a paid app to have the music synced to the workout and transitions between songs to only happen between moves. I liked these last two workouts by “Kenta“ but wouldn’t actually recommend this app. I’m not motivated to continue especially with the music issue and guessing how to do each exercise.

    I loved this app and have been using it for many months. It keeps me motivated to work out. However, as other users mentioned, the app was updated suddenly and a massive amount to content was removed. The past few weeks I did the last few longer, Intermediate and hard workouts but I ran out of new ones. I've been repeating workouts now but I'm starting to get bored. I saw a few new ones posted tonight after my workout so I'm hopeful they will eventually replenish the workouts

    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.

    By Jackie Sapitro
    The new option to choose your music is fine, but the music is so loud it drowns out the trainer. There is no way to adjust this and the whole point of this app is being able to listen to what they have to tell you.
  • Sep 9, 2021

    By Matt Masten
    I have no idea who thought the music system you are using is a good idea, but it sucks. Nice concept horrible execution. It is clear that the people in charge of making the music change does not actually use the product. Please at least make it so I can have no music and just the trainers voice. Or at best put in an option to use the original audio. The developer needs to take a step back and listen to the many many complaints or they are going to lose at least 1 customer for sure. UPDATE: when i follow those directions it still plays music even though i selected voice only. this may be a bug if it starts working i will update again and revise my rating

    More focus on you to get more members than upgrading their app, there is no body metrics, for you to control your progress. Work outs are great but their App could be a lot better.
  • Jun 13, 2021

    By Jimmy Pailin
    The very bad reviews are being paid very close attention by possible new users. They all seem about the music. I'll be focusing on that during my trial. The reviews don't give me much hope. (It seems the devs don't really care. A rote and poor response to complaints give me even less hope.)
  • 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!
  • 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.

    By Christy Baker
    This use to be my FAVORITE things, HOWEVER, ever since they changed the music, it is so glitchy I no longer use it even though I paid for a yearly subscription, so dissapointing. I want to listen to the original music that was on the workout, but on many workouts i used to love, this isn't listed as an option anymore. And when it is, the music is too loud without the option to change the volume and it isn't actually playing the original soundtracks like it says it is! PLEASE FIX THIS APP.
  • Aug 15, 2021

    By MJ Torres
    I signed up for a 7-day free trial. The first time I opened the app to try an exercise session it won't let me do it saying I have to pay a year's subscription. Unethical and unprofessional! RESPONSE TO DEVELOPER: I don't yet have a subscription. This was supposed to be a 7-day free trial.
  • Nov 29, 2019

    By Maria McCoy
    I would give this app a zero if I could. I participated in a free trial and canceled during my trial (October 14th). Today (November 29th) I was charged $99.00. I logged into the account to see that it was active again- I never logged back in after I canceled in October. I requested a full refund only to be told one would not be issued- they will only give you a 50% refund OR switch you to the mothly plan and refund you $85. Either way, you do not get a full refund. DONT USE THIS APP!!!!!!!!!
