    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.

  • 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!

    I am extremely annoyed by the new update. I specifically use the running audios because I hate having to figure out my own playlist to run to, but now I cannot get any version to download except rhe voice only version, which means I have to supply my own music (the voice only tracks download in about 15 seconds - I've left the app open for 30 min and returned to find that the progress bar hasnt moved when I download w/ music). Also, why dont all audios have an Aaptiv curated version????

  • 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”
  • 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!💪🏽

    I would have given this a 5 star a few weeks ago, but then they changed the app so that the instructor's music is completely removed and you chose your own. Not a big deal on strength or stretching or the like, but it has completely messed up the aerobics/running/eliptical type if program. Those rely on the instructor's music timing and selection. This new system is very unmotivated without that pre-planned pairing. None of the programs I've done have had the Original Soundtrack option.
  • 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!
  • 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.

    When it works it's great. I love the variety and the workouts are challenging. What isn't great is when it continuously stops during a workout and you can't pick up where you were. It happens EVERY time I go for a run. For a paid app, I was expecting a little better integration.
  • 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!!

    They broke it! For those of us who have used the app for a while, we have some favorite workouts, e.g. the outdoor run "Get your tempo on" with Rochelle. These workouts were curated around a specific set of songs. With the latest feature update Aaptiv removed the ability to hear these workouts with the songs that they were designed to use. The new "Select your genre" feature (which would be helpful only for people who don't otherwise have access to music on their phone) does not give the ability to access curated music for many workouts that were curated to music. They really *need* to update ALL the routines this "feature" broke. They *should* add a default setting that allows all searches to be limited to show only workouts with curated music. If I really want to fuss around to find a coached workout and music that matches the workout it is easier to do this without an app.

    The idea is amazing which got me into buying subscription but there are a few bugs which I emailed you about did not get any response. I have been using this app for a week straight and none of the workout sessions have the same visuals which the coach is guiding about, and then ones which does have are not in the same order so I have scroll over and find out. The music part works great and don't need any improvement but there everything wrong with the visuals. Please fix it.

    I've had this app for past couple years and was great without any issues. But with recent updates with being able to select your music and not having the option to select the original playlist the trainer selectd is a huge disappointment. The high tempo workouts just do not sync well with the music options. I will be cancelling my subscription after many years due to this update.
  • Apr 20, 2021

    By Young Bae
    There is two reasons to choose this app over others: beat based workouts and low-impact cardio. The new features does not collaborate with the trainers and the beat based workouts does not work anymore. I'm going to wait a month for Aaptive to invest in their trainers to make beat based workouts in different genres. Otherwise, I'm out. You can't increase content by just adding different music. You either need to make actual new content or work with the trainers to tweet what you have.
  • 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.

    UPDATE: Originally gave this app 5 stars, but this latest update, option to choose your own music, just doesn't work. Please change it back. ORIGINAL POST: This app is a great substitute or companion for the gym. Instructions are told well and a variety of work outs well explained if you are not gum savvy. I recommend for the casual work out person. Or if you want to explore other options at the gym. Not recommend if you are a weight lifter but cardio heads and CrossFit people will love it

    Having been using and subscribed to the app for 3 years and love it until this latest update. As mentioned my the other users the latest update broke the audio where the trainer and the music are no longer synced. This is so important for the elliptical workouts.

    I like the product a lot. But the app desperately needs a redesign. Please fix your audio issues. I have original music underlaying the music I picked. It's madness
  • Apr 14, 2021

    By Melelani Satsuma
    The music update is NOT an improvement, especially with cycling where the trainer has synched the tempo to the workout. I don't have an rpm readout, so music is how I pace myself. Additionally, the pushes are timed to specific parts of the songs. Tried to exit out and restart using the "Aaptiv curated" option, which I thought was the original playlist, but instead I got 2 stations playing at the same time. Big nope. Edit: I'm probably going to leave the app because of this.

    The app is great! I love the workout and the audio-based traning + music is what makes it so fun. Agree that the original playlist is better than choose yr own music. FEEDBACK: can you guys have the schedule from coach section integrated automatically with the phone's calendar? It is a bit inconvenient to log in each workout to hv it linked with the calendar. Would be good to hv the coach schedule automatically linked and hv some sort of reminder / notification pops up to remind you
  • 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.

    I decided to start working out when my youngest was 1 1/2. Then I decided to try running. I hated running, but I wanted to conquer it. But here’s the thing: I had NO clue what I was doing. Enter Aaptiv. I told it I was a beginner, I wanted to try running and get stronger, and boom, a list of recommendations. Audio workouts with knowledgeable, motivating trainers who at the beginner level walk you through the workouts, AND help you make sure you’re building proper form. You can do individual workouts, or they have longer programs with training schedules (like 4-12 weeks) for those who like to have everything laid out. They have everything from treadmill to boxing to yoga (and so much more!). And so many lengths, styles of music, and trainers. There’s really something for just about anyone who’s interested in fitness. Bonus: once you download the app, you have access to the Facebook community, with an amazing supportive community, and the trainers are pretty much all there, and you can ask them questions (or curse them out after a really hard workout 😆).
  • Makes it so easy to spin at home! Sep 27, 2017

    By MbChau
    I bought an indoor bike a few months ago. I tried to do two "classes" on my own based on what I knew from taking indoor cycling classes for years in NYC. It just didn't work... SO when I discovered Aaptiv (by seeing billboards all over NYC) I decided it would be the perfect time to try it. I still have to get up or get home to do my workouts, but Aaptiv makes it so easy! I love that I can pick a workout based on time. When I wake up and only have 25 mins until I need to be in the shower the 20-22 min workouts make feel great! I really do love Aaptiv. I have also tried the yoga class which was great! Try it out. I highly recommend! Also, their design and whole experience is great. I started an 18 min class and then realized I'd only be getting about 15 mins of actual workout so I ended the class and it immediately popped up options that were the same level just in the 20 min range - it was perfect! And allowed me not to have to search further in an early morning fog!
  • I would be lost in the gym without Aaptiv Aug 8, 2019

    This is obviously the best workout trainer app, and I think it might be the best app overall. Not only are the workouts fun, inspiring, exciting, encouraging, and addicting, but the app itself is easy to use and visually beautiful. The team feature is a fun accountability tool that makes it exciting to share how you’re feeling after exercising and sometimes get feedback from trainers! The coach helps stay on track and remember to take care of yourself holistically with all kinds of physical and mental health goals. I haven’t used the training schedules but I love that they are there for anyone who wants to use them. I accidentally paid for a years subscription and was annoyed that I dropped $100 on it by mistake but honestly I would do it again in a heartbeat and will definitely be continuing my subscription next year! Thank you so much to all the aaptiv trainers and developers, you make it feel good to move around and push myself to do what’s good for me!!! ❤️🥵💪
  • best fitness app Apr 11, 2019

    By getinfuzzy
    I’ve been using aaptiv for a little under a year now, and as the renewal date for the annual membership approaches, I thought I’d put in my two cents on the app. I’m not a huge fitness person, but I always found gyms intimidating with the various equipment and typically prefer at home workouts. Something to keep in mind if you’ll be using headphones, they definitely need to be cordless or I’d imagine they’d get in the way. I use the app maybe 1-2x/week in addition to going to my yoga studio. It’s great for quick (or long if you want), customized workouts and the music selection is pretty good (definitely better than any other fitness app out there). The “Body and Mind” yoga & meditation program with Kenta was one of my favorites. There’s so much room to play around on the app, as they have hundreds of workouts no matter the activity you’re on looking for & your fitness level. I’ll be renewing my subscription with aaptiv for the coming year, best fitness app I’ve been able to find!

    I've been a gym rat for many years and a fitness instructor on and off during this time as well, and I never thought I'd get a great workout from an app. This app helped me regain my fitness and lose weight after I had fallen off the fitness and health wagon for a while. It was the perfect thing to allow me to start slow but still get a challenge. I'm now back to exercising at least 4-5 days per week, am 15 pounds lighter (with improved eating also of course), and look forward to my workout for the day. I have an extremely busy work schedule and have a crappy commute, so I love the flexibility this app affords me. If I feel like my body needs a break but I still want 30 minutes of something to get me sweating, 30 minutes of yoga with Amanda Murdock delivers. I love the challenge of the outpost running and high intensity interval training from Amanda, Mike, and Sultan. The playlists are awesome as well. Can't believe the value you get for the monthly fee. BEST APP EVER.
  • 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!💪🏽

    The workouts are great and the trainers do a fantastic job guiding through the workout. The main issue I have with the app is if the workout gets interrupted for any reason, you cannot easily re-enter the workout in the app.
  • 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!

    Although latest update made it worse for me because performer reacts to original music, (choice of incompatible music is not an improvement, give a "no music" option then!), Aaptive is great value for money. Huge range of workouts, clear audio instructions in my earbuds. With this app you never are stuck for a guided workout, be it weights, bike, running, elliptical, yoga, stretching, hiit whatever. Cost per workout is fantastic compared to others.
  • 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!
  • Great but can always get better Jun 16, 2018

    By Windel1994
    I have recently starting using this app and I think it is great!! My only problem is the scheduling part of it. I kind of wish it wasn’t there at all because it really annoys me how useless it is. On my app I can only make one schedule. So I either schedule every day for the same time or schedule a random amount of days for the same time. The scheduler is assuming that I have a traditional 9-5 and am prepared to work out every day at the same time. I wish I could create multiple scheduled notifications to work out. TO PUSH THE SCHEDULING PART EVEN FURTHER... it would be amazing if I could actually go into work out and schedule them for different days or at least at a specific workout to my phones calendar or something so I could kind of create my own training schedule. I’m really hoping that I am to dumb to figure out how to work the scheduling and someone will comment or email telling me that I can actually do all these things in the app.
  • Great app, but ... Jan 19, 2020

    By Dilettante Meditator
    I have been a paid subscriber for a couple of years. In short, I love Aaptiv, but there could be improvements. Overall, this is an effective app with an eclectic offering of workouts. However, I want to add my voice to those who were disappointed when AAPTIV pulled many of the workouts. I was, and am, particularly chagrined about the loss of rowing machine workouts. Please bring some back or incorporate new ones! Also, the videos don’t always match the audio. As a predominantly audio app, I figure that is a cost of doing business and a work in progress. But some of the exercises in the stretching, yoga and Pilates workouts are difficult to follow (at least for neophytes). Don’t get me wrong the quality and enthusiasm of the instructors, the multi-level programs and challenges and the growing variety of workouts still make this my go to fitness app. But when it’s time to renew my annual subscription, I will compare to other apps and see...
  • Been using this app for years Apr 27, 2021

    By mammalyss
    My husband and I began using this app in 2017 and have stuck with it for 4 years now. I love that you can enroll in challenges, it really pushes you to keep up with your workouts. There is a huge variety of workout classes which has appealed to us throughout the years. I’ve tried just about every type. I absolutely LOVE the new update where you can pick your workout music and adjust the volume. After I had my son I realized that there was a maternity section which I wish I found before! A postpartum section would be great. The only reason I give only 4/5 stars is due to that and sometimes the videos of the exercise moves don’t exactly match what the coach is calling for but that’s okay because you can use the video as a base understanding and adjust yourself based on the coach’s description of the move. Thanks to everyone who is involved with creating this and maintaining this app!
  • First workout Mar 14, 2018

    By ccbtwo
    I’m a 74-year-old man who looks and feels about 54. Until about 10 years ago I was a nationally ranked cyclist, specializing in criteriums. Then a bad knee ended my cycling career, and I eventually had to have a partial knee replacement. I’ve been working out intensively for almost a year now, and have lost over 45 pounds. I alternate between 45-minute intervals on a spin cycle, 45-60 minutes at a steady pace on a treadmill, and 45-minute intervals on an Octane elliptical, and I also lift weights for an hour or more at least twice a week. I’d like to think I’m in pretty good shape. For my first workout with this program I did the “divide and conquer” beginners elliptical program. Much to my surprise I found it to be pretty challenging, and it probably pushed me harder than anything I’ve been doing in the last year. But I really liked it. If that’s a beginner level, I can’t wait to see what the advanced level looks like.

    I am extremely annoyed by the new update. I specifically use the running audios because I hate having to figure out my own playlist to run to, but now I cannot get any version to download except rhe voice only version, which means I have to supply my own music (the voice only tracks download in about 15 seconds - I've left the app open for 30 min and returned to find that the progress bar hasnt moved when I download w/ music). Also, why dont all audios have an Aaptiv curated version????
  • 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”
  • 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.....

    By Heather S
    I would have given this a 5 star a few weeks ago, but then they changed the app so that the instructor's music is completely removed and you chose your own. Not a big deal on strength or stretching or the like, but it has completely messed up the aerobics/running/eliptical type if program. Those rely on the instructor's music timing and selection. This new system is very unmotivated without that pre-planned pairing. None of the programs I've done have had the Original Soundtrack option.
  • 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!
  • 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.

    By Analisa Oleksy
    When it works it's great. I love the variety and the workouts are challenging. What isn't great is when it continuously stops during a workout and you can't pick up where you were. It happens EVERY time I go for a run. For a paid app, I was expecting a little better integration.
  • May 1, 2021

    By Cheryl Luft
    While the variety of options are great, all the recent reviews align with the issues I'm having. The filters when searching through workouts don't always register. The music aspect is definitely a bug that needs to be fixed. Most of the replies to these reviews reference an "original playlist" option but that doesn't actually exist. This needs to always be available since most trainers reference the playlist specifically during workouts.
  • 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.

    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 idea is amazing which got me into buying subscription but there are a few bugs which I emailed you about did not get any response. I have been using this app for a week straight and none of the workout sessions have the same visuals which the coach is guiding about, and then ones which does have are not in the same order so I have scroll over and find out. The music part works great and don't need any improvement but there everything wrong with the visuals. Please fix it.

    I've had this app for past couple years and was great without any issues. But with recent updates with being able to select your music and not having the option to select the original playlist the trainer selectd is a huge disappointment. The high tempo workouts just do not sync well with the music options. I will be cancelling my subscription after many years due to this update.
  • Apr 20, 2021

    By Young Bae
    There is two reasons to choose this app over others: beat based workouts and low-impact cardio. The new features does not collaborate with the trainers and the beat based workouts does not work anymore. I'm going to wait a month for Aaptive to invest in their trainers to make beat based workouts in different genres. Otherwise, I'm out. You can't increase content by just adding different music. You either need to make actual new content or work with the trainers to tweet what you have.
  • 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!

  • 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.
  • Bring back the original workout playlists!! Apr 19, 2021

    By Lulu3247
    I’ve been an Aaptiv member for years (so long that I was a member for years when it was Skyfit!), so it’s really painful to give them such a low rating, but I am SO disappointed with the music change. I heavily use the outdoor running workouts, and almost all of the workouts are tied to the music (pickups, length of time at a certain pace; etc). Initially after the change we were able to use the original playlist, but now I cannot find it on any of my favorite workouts! It is so disconcerting to lose that sync, especially in something like running. I can see how this change might be ok for other types of workouts (strength training, walking, etc) but it is a major bummer. Thinking of trying out Peloton or another app with synced with playlists, but it is so hard to think about leaving the trainers I love. Please bring back the original playlists as an option on all workouts!
  • It Changed...not in a good way Sep 7, 2019

    By Jlscharp
    Update. I USED to love this app. I have had it for a couple years and it helped me get back into shape originally. I loved a couple trainers in particular and there were awesome yoga workouts and running workouts that i had saved to my favorites. But recently something happened and those trainers and all my workouts i loved are gone and the many favorites i saved are all missing! Where’d they go? If a trainer leaves Aaptiv apparently so does their content! and what you replaced them with aren’t as good!! Most of the music is annoying in many of the new yoga workouts. I don’t like hip hop music to go along w my yoga! I canceled my annual membership which I still have til January Bc I had annual which was a good deal originally. No refund for your crappy changes!! Since I have it til next January I may check in periodically to see if content has improved to its original status. For now, You ruined a good thing sadly :(. Old review Love this app. There’s so many options for workouts and music and trainers that I never get bored. For someone that has never been a runner, this has gotten me into running Bc I can do it with a trainer in my ears helping me along the way. I’m not jogging all alone ;). Also I really like the yoga workouts. They’re very well done and explain things well. Thanks for making such a quality workout option for us non gym rats :).

    By tom
    They broke it! For those of us who have used the app for a while, we have some favorite workouts, e.g. the outdoor run "Get your tempo on" with Rochelle. These workouts were curated around a specific set of songs. With the latest feature update Aaptiv removed the ability to hear these workouts with the songs that they were designed to use. The new "Select your genre" feature (which would be helpful only for people who don't otherwise have access to music on their phone) does not give the ability to access curated music for many workouts that were curated to music. They really *need* to update ALL the routines this "feature" broke. They *should* add a default setting that allows all searches to be limited to show only workouts with curated music. If I really want to fuss around to find a coached workout and music that matches the workout it is easier to do this without an app.
  • 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.

    UPDATE: Originally gave this app 5 stars, but this latest update, option to choose your own music, just doesn't work. Please change it back. ORIGINAL POST: This app is a great substitute or companion for the gym. Instructions are told well and a variety of work outs well explained if you are not gum savvy. I recommend for the casual work out person. Or if you want to explore other options at the gym. Not recommend if you are a weight lifter but cardio heads and CrossFit people will love it

    The music update is NOT an improvement, especially with cycling where the trainer has synched the tempo to the workout. I don't have an rpm readout, so music is how I pace myself. Additionally, the pushes are timed to specific parts of the songs. Tried to exit out and restart using the "Aaptiv curated" option, which I thought was the original playlist, but instead I got 2 stations playing at the same time. Big nope. Edit: I'm probably going to leave the app because of this.

    Avoid. Do not buy. 1. The cardio workout videos do not sync to the instructor to make it clear what you are supposed to be doing so you have to STOP working out to find the next video in the playlist. 2. The video playlist did not always list the same moves the instructor was calling out so if I missed something in the audio I had no idea what I was supposed to be doing. 3. The playlist links were wrong. Clicking Exercise A showed Exercise B. And so on.

    Loved the app, but they just changed their music. When all the workouts, especially cardio based, work in tandem with the specific tracks selected its a shame the original tracks were removed. Hearing "when the beat drops, you sprint" but the music you have to select doesn't have a drop like that, it makes the instruction useless. Will change rating when the original sound track option is returned.
  • Used to be my absolute favorite training app Jul 29, 2019

    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

    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.
