    I give it 3 stars since it/Mari got me back into a healthy routine. Fitness app-wise, though, I'm disappointed. It's irritating there's no trial; even a day would've been good. I like that the home guide requires only dumbbells & a resistance band. Also like that I check off exercises as I complete them, but I found that if you're out of the app too long, it resets your day. Wish it'd give you recommendations for off days (stretch cardio, ?) and note which muscles are worked in an exercise.

    First off I want to say that I’ve bought every guide Mari has released, from her home guides, to her gym guides, and even her resolution guides. I love them all. My main problem with all of those is that downloading it on my phone and using it was a pain. So, I’d sacrifice keeping track of my progress on it for the convenience of not having to fiddle with adding text via what ever program I was using. This app is a GAME CHANGER for me. I can add how much weight I’m using, how many reps I did, and I can even put an exercise note. Then I can scroll through the history of that workout when I get to it again. I haven’t had any problems with “glitchy” videos, and slow load times. Every time I open the app it’s ready to go. I love that it doesn’t start out telling you how much weight you should use, so I use a weight that’s comfortable and challenging enough for me, and I can input that in the app too. It makes it more user friendly for me and doesn’t discourage me when it says to use a specific size weight and I can’t comfortably use that weight. Overall I love the app, and recommend it to anyone who loves gym guides or home guides but loves the flexibility to personalize them too.

    Lots of bugs still. The most frustrating one is I can watch the clip of how each exercise is done so I'm having to Google the exercise elsewhere in order to watch the form. I'm trying to be patient but when you pay for it, I want it to work better. Considering cancelling for a bit until more bugs are resolved.

    I fell in love with lifting because of Mari’s gym guides. I bought them all, all of her merch, her greens etc., I really do love what she brings to the table. However, I’m only giving the app 3 stars (for now) because I think it could use some updates. I like the workouts themselves but I do not like that you can’t see the future days of the week. Depending on my personal schedule for the week it could effect whether I do an upper body day or a lower body day, so switching days around sometimes would be ideal, but the app only lets you see the day you’re actually on. Sure, you could risk checking off all the exercises to move to the next day but if you go too far it’ll send you into the next week and makes it very difficult going back to past weeks without still moving you forward in the present week (a glitch maybe?). Anyway, would love the option of moving days around and the app would definitely get 5 stars! PS: I reached out to Slay help and I mostly just got a generated response and nothing since. Another reason for 3 stars. The app is highly rated maybe BC the very first day it came out Mari and her team asked all of her followers to go rate the app. And Mari’s followers are kinda like Beyoncé’s B hive. It’s mediocre at best.

    I think this app is great. It's very new so they are still working out some bugs but I think it's really useful. I like how you can record everything and track your workouts. I like that the programs are 9 weeks long progressing in difficulty so you can restart and your body doesn't plateau. My only suggestion would be to add more about food and diet. Or maybe have a section with the Bloom Supplement baking/smoothie recipes!
  • Progress photos not Available Apr 2, 2021

    I love Mari fitness and have been doing her work out guides since last year. I started with the PDFs. I’m only giving this app 3 stars bc I cannot see any of my progress photos. I uploaded a photo my first day using this app and it’s just blank, it shows there is a pic there with a date (wrong date) and everything but it’s blank. When I uploaded this picture thru the app it didn’t save in my photos on my iPhone so I no longer have it. I didn’t notice this until a few weeks later when I went to upload another pic so I posted another one, then about a week later I posted another one and my first pictures date changed to my second pictures date so I could remember what date my first pic was from. Today I finished my 9 weeks so I went back to see my progress and all my pictures were blank again. Very disappointed I can’t truly compare my progress. Also when I finish each work out for the day the CTA “back to home guides” pops up but I can’t click on it, I always have to wait or exit out and go back into the app. I love Mari fitness and want to support her so I feel bad writing this review, but I’m sad I can’t see my progress.

    I like this app and I like it’s usability. It is basically the pdfs in app form so it does feel redundant but it’s nice to have it all together even if it’s frustrating to pay so much for something I already have. A couple things I’d like to see: the ability to choose home workouts that are just body weight exercises. I travel a lot and there aren’t many good gyms around in my places so being able to choose a home work out without any equipment would be helpful. I’d like to be able to look ahead at the next days to. Also, if you can make the app not allow your phone to sleep when you’re using it would be mega helpful since it’s frustrating to have to unlock my phone every exercise. I could do it manually but I have other apps that don’t allow your phone to sleep so it’d be super helpful. Hope they update soon with some things other people have mentioned too! Lots of good ideas! And also! A section of “how to use this app” would be great. I have no idea how long the rest periods should be or if you’re intended to repeat the exercises twice or thrice. It’d be nice to have an informational how to section

    April 2021 Edit: I took away two stars because I'm frustrated that the android version not only launched late but still doesn't work properly & the only answer we get is "fix coming soon". Meanwhile apple users pay the same amount, had early access and have all the features.😔 Jan 2021: I'm so excited for this app. The ability to have the move, required reps, weight stats, video & description of what you're doing in the exercise all in one place is everything I've ever wanted in a fitness app.

    I'm a little disappointed as the others have said. It's nice to have the exercises in the app format but I feel like the exercises are so repetitive. I feel like I'm doing the same exact exercises every single time it is getting boring. There should have been a trial, I already had the pdfs and at least those have more options.
  • Slay App Feb 7, 2021

    By jcana912
    I have purchased the home guides in the past and also really love their supplement brand- I it’s where I purchase all my pre workout and BCAA, etc. When I heard the Slay app was coming out, I was so excited to try it as it’s just much more easily accessible when you’re at the gym vs following the pdf guide. However, after having been through a bunch of other fitness apps/programs, this one is almost too simplistic for me. The biggest turnoff for me is that I can’t look ahead to the schedule of workouts for the week. Sometimes it doesn’t even make sense the way they are scheduled and I wish I could simply switch them around but you can’t see the next workout unless you “finish” that day. One week ended with glute/quad and the following week started with glute/ham? I don’t find that helpful in terms of recovery or progress. I also find that the advanced selection of workouts are almost too simplistic... I find myself adding a few exercises of my own when I expect the app to provide a workout program that’s progressively challenging. I know this just came out so hopefully they follow through with feedback because with some changes I’d really love this app just because I believe in the people behind the brand.
  • Love Mari but not the app Jan 6, 2021

    By love my i-pod
    I’ve loved Mari’s supplement products for years! I tried the original pdf workout guides, but they just got too simple and repetitive for me. Her advanced is NOT advanced for someone who knows how to lift in the gym. Very much a beginner/basic content. The app seems money hungry to push a product that she’s not at all qualified to do. Mari is not a trainer, and very evident in her poor form and incomplete movements (ex: not ever pushing/squatting the full lifting movement as also seen on IG). Not cool to charge $10/month to be teaching others when you’re not qualified. Like others have said, you won’t find a negative review of her products ANYWHERE, as all negative reviews are deleted. That is not a transparent company. This app is the first exception since you can’t modify reviews on the App Store, and it’s quickly becoming apparent others see the same thing. She has a huge IG following, as she is a phenomenal human. But, not qualified to push a workout app without being a trainer. I hope she sticks to her product line instead, as she rocks this. Definitely would recommend someone else’s app instead of paying for this one!

    Does Mari allow us to rate? Ha. Keeps crashing while I try and upload progress phitos. Very frustrating.
  • Mar 24, 2021

    By Sandra Balfoort
    I definitely believe in paying for quality content, but this app just isn't good. Like others mentioned, it's essentially the pdf guides in app form. There really should be a way to explore what the app offers before paying for it, like a slide of screenshots. Or a trial period. It's really annoying that you can't navigate through the app, like seeing all the guides or moves cumulatively. You're literally going through day by day, week by week.

    Update: Still no response to my email, review,, DMs, or comments on insta. This is a great app. Unfortunately, after completing day 5, week 9, I was cycled back to Day one, week one. All of my notes are still in, which is great, but there's no option to progress past 9 weeks that I can find. Disappointing, because they were hyping up the idea that they have "years" of content available and I seem to have burned through everything in just over 2 months. Hopefully there will be more content soon!

  • Not as challenging as I hoped Jan 6, 2021

    By kt_1121
    Listen, I am one of the biggest Mari supporters and been with her for years. I’ve had total loyalty to her with everything she’s done. I’ve waited for this app for months and was so happy to support her and Greg. I have worked through all her guides and am comfortable with the gym so I chose the advanced gym guide 5 days a week and it is just too basic. I can do all the upper body exercises in 20 minutes and found myself adding other exercises and supersets just to challenge myself. The third day isn’t a full gym day and just a touch up day when I’ve been lifting a full 5 days for months now and it just feels like a wasted gym day for someone who actively lifts and expected a full workout for 5 days. This app is great for people just beginning their fitness journey but it just feels like the advanced part got left out. I will try again if they make it more challenging but for now, I need to continue my fitness journey elsewhere as much as I hate to say it

    Hmmmm.... So initially subscribed to the app on my iPad to give it a try over the weekend... thinking I would be just able to login on my Android phone but NOPE. I can't pay for the subscription for two different devices. Maybe this just wasn't thought about, but please fix so users can log in from anywhere. I have one account why wouldn't I be able to login from whatever device. Otherwise, it really isn't that mobile. Also, love the app on my iPad, a bit pricey, but worth it if you use it.
  • Nothing Different Jan 3, 2021

    By kayxo9651
    It’s basically a place where all the guides are now. There’s no new content that’s different from her pdf guides that I’ve done (literally every single one). The “advanced” workouts are not challenging at all, which should be for those that aren’t new to the gym. There’s about 4 workouts, 3 sets each and 1 ab circuit and 10 minutes of cardio, almost every day. You cannot view workouts days or weeks ahead, unless you check mark each workout indicating you’ve completed it so you can move on to the next day. Not very user friendly or suitable to individual needs. There’s also no free trial period, not even 24 hours like most fitness apps have, which is odd for an entirely new app to do. A free trial period should have been offered especially when they need to work out any issues like the app crashing and being unable to use what you paid for. While I do love their supplement products, this venture feels like a rip off and not worth the monthly fee.

  • Amazing for v1!! Jan 2, 2021

    By Mish7228
    I’ve been so excited for this app and it did not disappoint. The breakdown on exercises everyday with video and written instruction is so helpful and I love that this is completely different from the original home guides I’ve been using for almost a year. I love that I have access to all plans in one place and that I can choose a plan to fit my schedule. No negatives but some wishes: I would love to easily go back to my previous exercises to look at reps and weight. As of right now there’s a few steps to get back to that screen. I would love a section that talks about warm up, cool down, how long the break between exercises should be, maybe when you should think about increasing weight, etc. I would also love to be able to add video to my progress photo screen! I love this company and will continue to support it! They have completely changed the way I think and feel about exercise!
  • Incredible usability and simplicity Jan 2, 2021

    By _erikasaurusrex
    Maris guides have been a favorite of mine to follow for the sheer reason that her workouts are simple, crazy effective, and can’t really be done no matter what gym you have access to. This app is all of the and more! I love that it’s so straight forward and much like an iPhone, it’s intuitive: you don’t need to be an expert to follow the workouts and the app makes your time working out so seamless. The notes section where you can log your reps and weight used is awesome, and I love that next week I’ll be able to look back later and reference the weight I used in all of my workouts! The progress photo section is such an awesome bonus, I’ve been using an album in my Photos app for months and this is going to be so much easier for me. Mari and Greg have really killed it in making this app not only affordable but in my opinion, one of the best on the market.
  • Great Start Jan 5, 2021

    By vnguyen2x2
    I’ve followed Mari for a couple years and all of her products have been high quality and the team behind it works hard to keep that up. I’ve bought the supplements, bands, and guides. All top notch. It’s a great start for the company’s first app launch. I know it will only get better with time. That is why I bought into the year subsciption. Would a free trial made it better, yes. But again, I can see the team working hard to update the app far more often than they would with the guides. Workouts are similar to what are in a guide but if you want ease of tracking, documenting, and information the app is a good choice. I did not like how I kept have to scroll to find the day i was at in the PDFs. This app changed that. Here’s what I would like to see in the future: 1. The exercise glossary to be label as push/pull days. I’d like this because with COVID gyms open and close. I am following the home guide to be safe but would like to incorporate moves from the gym guide when I can. 2. A community section so I don’t have to go to my ancient Facebook page to get connected and inspired. 3. Exclusive app content videos/bts/etc. really make being a member special. All in all it’s just the beginning and if you’ve followed the teams journey you know that it’ll only get better with time.
  • Mari’s App Jan 2, 2021

    By Sammw3486
    For the people complaining.. I understand a few free trial workouts would be good to see if people like it before they are committed to purchasing but at least If you do month to month you can cancel at anytime so you are only out $10 for a month of her workouts if you decide it’s not for you. Also they are new to the app world so I think for beginners or people that want someone to tell them every workout what they are doing, like I wanted, it’s a great option! Also Bloom, Mari’s guides, and bands have never let me down so I don’t think this app will either! The fact you can’t jump ahead and see other workouts makes it more exciting to me and a challenge that you need to complete one workout to get to the next and you won’t skip workouts! I am looking forward to start the Jan 4th challenge! ❤️ Thank you Mari and Team!
  • Best thing to happen to the fitness app industry! Jan 3, 2021

    By elleex3
    I love everything about this app. They hands down read our brains and made the vision come to life. The way everything is set up is absolutely perfect & so easy to navigate. I’ve read some other reviews of people complaining that it’s not free, Mari has posted before launch that Slay is completely separate from the guides. To leave negative feedback based on cost is shady. I also just want to add, when you pour your blood sweat and tears into something (and the perfection shows). Time needs to be compensated. You’re budgeting for your health, it’s more than worth it. To Mari, Greg & the whole team. Thank you a million times over, you guys are the superheroes that continue so shape and mold us into the best version of ourselves we can ever be!
  • Great app! Jan 2, 2021

    By Gcaretti
    I have the at home guides already, but decided to try the app out. I love how I can go back and forth between gym/home workouts (once I can go back to the gym), the videos of each move are super helpful, and the coach descriptions are just what you need if the video isn’t enough. I also appreciate that I can track my reps/weight, take progress pics, keep notes on the workout all in one App. Super convenient! I would recommend only paying for the first month to try it out, then paying for the year. One thing, It would be nice if there was a calendar screen showing the days you worked out. But the’ll probably add something like that soon. The makers of the app are great people and actually respond to feedback. Overall love it!
  • Better features & more affordable than other apps Jan 3, 2021

    By hols578
    This app is easy to use and is simple and cute. I’ve come from using a couple other fitness apps and programs before. I’m comparing this app specifically to Kayla Itsines SWEAT app, Smalletics, and Mari’s old PDF guides. Here’s what I love about the SLAY app and what makes it unique: **more cost friendly than other fitness apps **exercise glossary and dictionaries, and videos of exercises that are easily accessible within the app **the ability to save notes within each specific exercise and see my previous history for the exercise. Saves me time and makes it so much easier. **I can use GYM AND HOME workouts equally without having to switch plans or trainers. Many people are complaining about the subscription. But this is totally normal for fitness businesses when they switch from PDF guides to an app. It’s expected and common. Even so, this app is more cost friendly than a lot of other apps I’ve seen. I personally like the exercise style in the app (no circuits like in the guides) and the ease of use of the app. I’m all for it. This app is brand new and they’re doing a fantastic job so far. GREAT WORK Mari, Greg, and team!!

    Love it, great to have all the guides in one place! I am having a hard time uploading the progress photos and my suggestion would be to allow for customization in the workouts like allowing us to swap out some for others.... And choose days per week instead of only allowing 3 or 4. ✌️ Thanks!

    I lobe Mari and have used her guides for the past 2 years (re-doing them over and over). This app is great for the price as you can enter your sets and weights, and follow simple, effective workouts similar to the guides. I’ve tried other guides from insta fit girls and have spent hours in the gym each day (which I don’t have time for and end up not being motivated to do), but these workouts are usually less than an hour and still challenge me. Some updates I’d like to see: having a rest timer built in, being able to add or remove sets (and drop sets!), altering exercises if needed, updating notes without selecting done and update notes, allowing you to preview upcoming workouts. With those I feel like it will be perfect, but I’ll definitely continue using!

    I love this app! I have been using it for 4 weeks now and I am enjoying being able to track my progress. The only reason I didn't give it a five is because I still can't upload a progress picture which is frustrating. I also have issues with the little icons being bunched together to where I cant click on the one I need during an exercise.
  • Nice App - some small tweaks would make it great! Jan 6, 2021

    By Cams Mom MI
    I have been using the old printed guides for a year, so I’m very excited to change it up with the app! The layout is fantastic. I LOVE the check off feature, motivating for the type A people. I would have liked to have seen a tour of the app prior to having to commit to it. There should be a trial or minimally a glimpse so you know what to expect. The videos are really helpful. But there are some basic moves I would like to have seen added to the “learn” section. RDL being one of them - it always feels like I’m doing it wrong so it would be nice if that was there. Some of the exercises are clear what a set is, others are not. Ex. Russian twist was clear. The first home guide level two lunge exercise was not. All in all, really enjoying the app.

    I give it 3 stars since it/Mari got me back into a healthy routine. Fitness app-wise, though, I'm disappointed. It's irritating there's no trial; even a day would've been good. I like that the home guide requires only dumbbells & a resistance band. Also like that I check off exercises as I complete them, but I found that if you're out of the app too long, it resets your day. Wish it'd give you recommendations for off days (stretch cardio, ?) and note which muscles are worked in an exercise.

    Lots of bugs still. The most frustrating one is I can watch the clip of how each exercise is done so I'm having to Google the exercise elsewhere in order to watch the form. I'm trying to be patient but when you pay for it, I want it to work better. Considering cancelling for a bit until more bugs are resolved.
  • Slay App Feb 2, 2021

    I fell in love with lifting because of Mari’s gym guides. I bought them all, all of her merch, her greens etc., I really do love what she brings to the table. However, I’m only giving the app 3 stars (for now) because I think it could use some updates. I like the workouts themselves but I do not like that you can’t see the future days of the week. Depending on my personal schedule for the week it could effect whether I do an upper body day or a lower body day, so switching days around sometimes would be ideal, but the app only lets you see the day you’re actually on. Sure, you could risk checking off all the exercises to move to the next day but if you go too far it’ll send you into the next week and makes it very difficult going back to past weeks without still moving you forward in the present week (a glitch maybe?). Anyway, would love the option of moving days around and the app would definitely get 5 stars! PS: I reached out to Slay help and I mostly just got a generated response and nothing since. Another reason for 3 stars. The app is highly rated maybe BC the very first day it came out Mari and her team asked all of her followers to go rate the app. And Mari’s followers are kinda like Beyoncé’s B hive. It’s mediocre at best.
  • Progress photos not Available Apr 2, 2021

    By 0987meg
    I love Mari fitness and have been doing her work out guides since last year. I started with the PDFs. I’m only giving this app 3 stars bc I cannot see any of my progress photos. I uploaded a photo my first day using this app and it’s just blank, it shows there is a pic there with a date (wrong date) and everything but it’s blank. When I uploaded this picture thru the app it didn’t save in my photos on my iPhone so I no longer have it. I didn’t notice this until a few weeks later when I went to upload another pic so I posted another one, then about a week later I posted another one and my first pictures date changed to my second pictures date so I could remember what date my first pic was from. Today I finished my 9 weeks so I went back to see my progress and all my pictures were blank again. Very disappointed I can’t truly compare my progress. Also when I finish each work out for the day the CTA “back to home guides” pops up but I can’t click on it, I always have to wait or exit out and go back into the app. I love Mari fitness and want to support her so I feel bad writing this review, but I’m sad I can’t see my progress.
  • Pretty good! Jan 6, 2021

    I like this app and I like it’s usability. It is basically the pdfs in app form so it does feel redundant but it’s nice to have it all together even if it’s frustrating to pay so much for something I already have. A couple things I’d like to see: the ability to choose home workouts that are just body weight exercises. I travel a lot and there aren’t many good gyms around in my places so being able to choose a home work out without any equipment would be helpful. I’d like to be able to look ahead at the next days to. Also, if you can make the app not allow your phone to sleep when you’re using it would be mega helpful since it’s frustrating to have to unlock my phone every exercise. I could do it manually but I have other apps that don’t allow your phone to sleep so it’d be super helpful. Hope they update soon with some things other people have mentioned too! Lots of good ideas! And also! A section of “how to use this app” would be great. I have no idea how long the rest periods should be or if you’re intended to repeat the exercises twice or thrice. It’d be nice to have an informational how to section

    April 2021 Edit: I took away two stars because I'm frustrated that the android version not only launched late but still doesn't work properly & the only answer we get is "fix coming soon". Meanwhile apple users pay the same amount, had early access and have all the features.😔 Jan 2021: I'm so excited for this app. The ability to have the move, required reps, weight stats, video & description of what you're doing in the exercise all in one place is everything I've ever wanted in a fitness app.
  • I want to love it, but it’s not there yet Jan 20, 2021

    By redrunner1
    I love Mari and Greg’s content and think they are doing a phenomenal job, but the current functionality offering and the price aren’t matching up yet for me. It seems more like a well designed mobile-friendly version of the guides than a subscription workout app. There’s just more things I expect from a paid workout app that aren’t built in yet. Like Rest timers and notifications, reports that show progress on lifts, included warm ups and cool downs, being able to see future workouts in order to plan in advance or do another workout without switching programs. There’s so much opportunity here though that will eventually make this a 5-star review. I can see a community feed aspect tying in to the app that will be unparalleled to other workout apps because of how strong Mari’s community is. I’m trying to keep in mind that it’s just v1, but I’m probably not the early adopter audience for this one. I’ll resubscribe and update my review once it’s gotten more features.

    Loved this app for the first 9 weeks cycle. Was a bit disappointed to find that it takes you back to the beginning after day 5. I was hoping for week 10 that we would get knew moves (split squats, curtsey lunge, etc...anything innovative) I can bump up my own weight and I guess modify exercises. The app is still new so I'm hoping this app picks up where week 9 left off.

    I want to give this more stars. I love their bloom nutrition and the workouts on here are great. There are some user experience flaws. A. I got a new phone. Had to re-download app. Lost my entire program where I was at. Made me start over. My favorite user experience fitness app still is Sweat. They think of user actions from beginning to end. B. No cool down or warm up. Looking forward to additions and improvements.

    I subscribed to one month of this app, and I'm not sure if I'll be renewing. I'm using the home workouts and it's great that there's a video showing how to do the move correctly, but other than that its no different from the pdf home guides I already have from Mari. I was excited about being able to upload progress photos to track my journey but they don't upload (I'm on android). There's not even a table to track measurements & weight. It's just very very simple.

    I'm a little disappointed as the others have said. It's nice to have the exercises in the app format but I feel like the exercises are so repetitive. I feel like I'm doing the same exact exercises every single time it is getting boring. There should have been a trial, I already had the pdfs and at least those have more options.
  • Slay App Feb 7, 2021

    By jcana912
    I have purchased the home guides in the past and also really love their supplement brand- I it’s where I purchase all my pre workout and BCAA, etc. When I heard the Slay app was coming out, I was so excited to try it as it’s just much more easily accessible when you’re at the gym vs following the pdf guide. However, after having been through a bunch of other fitness apps/programs, this one is almost too simplistic for me. The biggest turnoff for me is that I can’t look ahead to the schedule of workouts for the week. Sometimes it doesn’t even make sense the way they are scheduled and I wish I could simply switch them around but you can’t see the next workout unless you “finish” that day. One week ended with glute/quad and the following week started with glute/ham? I don’t find that helpful in terms of recovery or progress. I also find that the advanced selection of workouts are almost too simplistic... I find myself adding a few exercises of my own when I expect the app to provide a workout program that’s progressively challenging. I know this just came out so hopefully they follow through with feedback because with some changes I’d really love this app just because I believe in the people behind the brand.

    Does Mari allow us to rate? Ha. Keeps crashing while I try and upload progress phitos. Very frustrating.
  • Mar 24, 2021

    By Sandra Balfoort
    I definitely believe in paying for quality content, but this app just isn't good. Like others mentioned, it's essentially the pdf guides in app form. There really should be a way to explore what the app offers before paying for it, like a slide of screenshots. Or a trial period. It's really annoying that you can't navigate through the app, like seeing all the guides or moves cumulatively. You're literally going through day by day, week by week.
  • Not as challenging as I hoped Jan 6, 2021

    By kt_1121
    Listen, I am one of the biggest Mari supporters and been with her for years. I’ve had total loyalty to her with everything she’s done. I’ve waited for this app for months and was so happy to support her and Greg. I have worked through all her guides and am comfortable with the gym so I chose the advanced gym guide 5 days a week and it is just too basic. I can do all the upper body exercises in 20 minutes and found myself adding other exercises and supersets just to challenge myself. The third day isn’t a full gym day and just a touch up day when I’ve been lifting a full 5 days for months now and it just feels like a wasted gym day for someone who actively lifts and expected a full workout for 5 days. This app is great for people just beginning their fitness journey but it just feels like the advanced part got left out. I will try again if they make it more challenging but for now, I need to continue my fitness journey elsewhere as much as I hate to say it

    Hmmmm.... So initially subscribed to the app on my iPad to give it a try over the weekend... thinking I would be just able to login on my Android phone but NOPE. I can't pay for the subscription for two different devices. Maybe this just wasn't thought about, but please fix so users can log in from anywhere. I have one account why wouldn't I be able to login from whatever device. Otherwise, it really isn't that mobile. Also, love the app on my iPad, a bit pricey, but worth it if you use it.

    I'm definitely going to use this app, but there should've been a free trial to test it out first. *Using apps doesn't always work for everyone* This is also way more expensive than what I was expecting to spend (even for the full year). Especially bc of how much I already spend on her other products. I can't be the only patron disappointed with the price. Hopefully this app is worth the $$!
  • Love Mari but not the app Jan 6, 2021

    By love my i-pod
    I’ve loved Mari’s supplement products for years! I tried the original pdf workout guides, but they just got too simple and repetitive for me. Her advanced is NOT advanced for someone who knows how to lift in the gym. Very much a beginner/basic content. The app seems money hungry to push a product that she’s not at all qualified to do. Mari is not a trainer, and very evident in her poor form and incomplete movements (ex: not ever pushing/squatting the full lifting movement as also seen on IG). Not cool to charge $10/month to be teaching others when you’re not qualified. Like others have said, you won’t find a negative review of her products ANYWHERE, as all negative reviews are deleted. That is not a transparent company. This app is the first exception since you can’t modify reviews on the App Store, and it’s quickly becoming apparent others see the same thing. She has a huge IG following, as she is a phenomenal human. But, not qualified to push a workout app without being a trainer. I hope she sticks to her product line instead, as she rocks this. Definitely would recommend someone else’s app instead of paying for this one!

    Update: Still no response to my email, review,, DMs, or comments on insta. This is a great app. Unfortunately, after completing day 5, week 9, I was cycled back to Day one, week one. All of my notes are still in, which is great, but there's no option to progress past 9 weeks that I can find. Disappointing, because they were hyping up the idea that they have "years" of content available and I seem to have burned through everything in just over 2 months. Hopefully there will be more content soon!

  • Nothing Different Jan 3, 2021

    By kayxo9651
    It’s basically a place where all the guides are now. There’s no new content that’s different from her pdf guides that I’ve done (literally every single one). The “advanced” workouts are not challenging at all, which should be for those that aren’t new to the gym. There’s about 4 workouts, 3 sets each and 1 ab circuit and 10 minutes of cardio, almost every day. You cannot view workouts days or weeks ahead, unless you check mark each workout indicating you’ve completed it so you can move on to the next day. Not very user friendly or suitable to individual needs. There’s also no free trial period, not even 24 hours like most fitness apps have, which is odd for an entirely new app to do. A free trial period should have been offered especially when they need to work out any issues like the app crashing and being unable to use what you paid for. While I do love their supplement products, this venture feels like a rip off and not worth the monthly fee.

    Unfortunately, there is no option to explore the app to see what you're paying for before immediately signing up for a paid plan on the home screen. I would like to see what I'm paying for before making the financial commitment, regardless of cost. I'm also surprised that there isn't an option for existing Mari Fitness customers to get free access, or at least a discount. I was super pumped for this app and waited in anticipation for the Android version. Uninstalled shortly after downloading :(
