Misleading and frustrating
By Imaginary Dragon
First of all, I’m so sick of these “free” workout apps that actually require a subscription, especially because I was excited to hear that this was an app that you could use even if you didn’t have any workout equipment. But I can literally just look up some exercises on Pinterest for free and it’ll probably be better than this app.
Secondly, the issues with the weight. It’s totally fine if you’re using a fitness app to lose weight, but I’m not trying to lose weight! And I said that in the beginning when the app asked me what I was trying to do, I’m trying to build muscle! And yet, even though I said I wasn’t trying to lose weight, they still asked me about my weight goals, and I couldn’t skip the question. So I put ten pounds above my current weight, figuring I’ll probably be a bit heavier once I’ve got some muscle on me.
Then, it showed me the graph for how long it would take me to reach my goals, and I realized it had no idea what it was talking about. It’s a scam, y’all, it’s lying to you. Because at the amount of calories they’re listing me as burning (and considering they have no idea what my caloric intake is), there’s no way I’m gaining ten pounds of muscle in four weeks. They’re making it up. They’re just slapping a graph on a four week chart and saying that’s what they’ll help you do. PLEASE DONT GIVE THIS APP MONEY.
Good Fast Workouts
I’m kind of surprised by all of the recent negative reviews. There are a lot of features in this app. I really like that you can go with their plan for you or you can randomly decide to do something else. The workouts you can build from are good and well thought out.
They can be difficult. If you are not used to HIIT training or calisthenics then you may think the workouts are strange or not worth it for some reason. I don’t understand this. One reviewer said they are “fake” workouts. I have been doing similar routines although less structured on my own and have had good results. I am happy to have an app to keep things organized and keep my workouts fresh.
The instructional videos for each exercise are really awesome as well. So far it’s been a good purchase I’m on week 3.
Edit: You manage subscriptions inside of your Apple ID in settings. You can cancel the subscription outside of the app. This is not uncommon, don’t blame the developer because you don’t know how to use your phone or google things.
Payed subscriber that app doesn’t recognize
I payed for the 3 month subscription and loved the app. The problem came about after I bumped it up to a yearly subscription. I payed but then the app acted like I wasn’t a subscriber and kicked me off. I checked to make sure the subscription processed and it did but the app wasn’t processing it. I tried restarting my device, I tried deleting the app and reinstalling. Eventually I canceled my subscription and asked for a refund. I tried again a second time with the yearly but again, it worked for two days before acting like I wasn’t a subscriber. I contacted Apple and followed their instructions to try and fix the issue but that did not work so I contacted the app developer only for them not even being able to do anything at all as they “ don’t have access to personal accounts”. I had to unsubscribe again and ask for a refund. Such a disappointment. I really liked the app while it worked but it is permanently deleted as a third time is NOT happening!
False Advertising at it’s Finest
These kind of companies are aggravating me lately. They portray themselves as a “free” app on their promotions on tik tok, the most popular choice of social media currently, collecting tons of downloads. But it requires a subscription? I’m sorry? 3 days for free, then a $4 subscription. Which isn’t a lot. However, I guarantee you that a huge amount of the audience these creators targeted on tik tok cannot afford to spend an additional $4 every month (on something they were promised would be free) when minim wage literally doesn’t even meet living expenses; but I digress. You promoted your app, on a popular social media platform, saying it was free, and it requires a subscription. Would it be acceptable if Netflix advertised itself as a free service? No, because it requires a subscription and it is understood that false advertising isn’t cool? I’m not sure but thus is garbage and it’s rude.
TLDR: Angry gen-z telling you this app isn’t free. It requires a subscription. Thx

i saw this app on an add and i’ve been wanting to workout and be more fit lately so i get the app thinking it’s free unless you want to buy the premium. i open the app and it asks me a few starter questions and made a workout with good exercises to do. i look at all the exercises and run around the house trying to find dumbbells a jump rope and a yoga mat even though one of the questions was “do you have any equipment to workout with” and i chose the answer no. after thirty minutes of trying to find the things i go out to my backyard because it’s t he only place with enough room to workout. i go out even though it’s raining because i felt motivated enough to workout anyways because i just spent half an hour trying to find everything i needed. i set everything up outside and tap the “start workout” option and it immediately brings me back to the get premium tab. i thought it was just a glitch so i exed out of the tab and tapped the “start workout” option a second time, same thing. i soon realised that in order to start the workout i needed to buy the premium for 4.99 ͟pe͟r͟ w͟e͟e͟k͟. so there i am standing in the pouring rain in a tank top and shorts thinking i was going to be productive and workout for once.
i am very disappointed with this app.
Weight Promises & Cost
I am over weight for my age. So I put my goal weight as... well my goal weight. 70 lbs lighter than I currently am. And it’s promising me that I will be that 70 lbs lighter in 4 weeks. Only costing me a total of $21 to become the perfect person I wish to be.... just to anyone out there. I have never seen this kind of work done to lost 70lbs in a month. Unless I’m INSANELY overweight to which I’m not, I put my goal lighter than someone my age, height, and gender should be. Even then, I’ve seen it take longer. I tried the trial and the training is fine and dandy but no help to the rest of life. Like food, water, much of anything. And in reality I would probably spending quite a few months shedding off 70 lbs costing me way over $21. Let’s say even just 6 months. I’m looking at near $200. When I can get another app for $30 a year or weight watchers for $200 a year. Very strange to me.
Worth the feed
Most of the reviews are saying that they are upset because of subscription fees but honestly I’ve been doing it for 3 weeks and it’s definitely worth it. I feel great after every session and I feel that it’s worth the money that I paid. I’m glad that this is working the way I expected it to. I only wish that the people in the reviews could get over the small fee. Most other fitness apps aren’t free either so I don’t see the issue. Over all, great app and I would totally recommend to friends and family.
I couldn’t cancel my subscription
So I haven’t even used the app yet. I saw it advertise on Instagram and downloaded it. I chose “lose weight” as my goal. It let me pick multiple target areas. And it had a three day free trial and the after three days started at 4.99 a week, which I didn’t think was bad. So I did it. Then I started reading the reviews. One review mentioned it wouldn’t let them cancel their subscription and I immediately went in to see if it would let me change it, and it wouldn’t. I couldn’t even click on it. It also changed my goal from “lose weight” to “stay fit.” I was excited to try it, but when it comes to paying for it, I should have the ability to cancel whenever I wanted.
Hard to view daily workout videos
I decided to try out the free trial and wasn’t put off by the 4.99 subscription fee. But once I tried my first workout I noticed that the only way to view the actual workout it wants you to do is to watch a very small thumbnail that was only available from the main screen. Once I selected to begin the workout I was not able to see the actual moves anywhere which is fine I am sure for those who know these moves already but not so much for someone just starting out. I canceled my subscription for now and will continue to look for something else.
Not very friendly
There are two ways the app measures a workout, personal counting & a timer. I started a workout and did the 1st set of 20 they wanted but didn’t realize I had to hit forward to get to the next workout. The next workout was timed. With the app being silent; there was no indication on time other than constantly looking at the screen. I would look up and it’s a totally different workout. The meal plan was a bonus, but it would be better if there were some sort of shopping list. It’s not a user friendly app. It’s got potential but lacks basic functionality.
