Like unlimited CrossFit membership but only pay for one class 👍
I was thinking about going back to a box until I found this app. I have a perfectly good home gym, but was unmotivated to workout and I missed the style of workouts of a box. This app is amazing because it provides workouts based on the equipment I have at home. It’s helping me gain back my strength and keep track of everything as I get back into lifting heavy and working out after a torn ACL.
Looking for a complete Program that challenges you to be your best and not get stale, look no further! Kudos to AI for taking all into account!
I love this app because I can program it to meet my needs with ease. I’ve used many of fitness apps over the years and this is one of the best. It is worth the money. I used customer support on two occasions and they did a great job answering my questions.
Only my first week using Keelo but it totally beats every other app I’ve tried. Try it- you definitely won’t regret it!
I love this app; it provides me with a taste of how it would be at a CF box. I only have one complaint—- it is hard for me to do the running workouts because it’s not safe to run where i live. It would be great if WODs with sprints were added. I have enough space in my garage where I workout to do this. Thanks again. ❤️
Worth every penny, been using it for over a year and still being challenged.
First of all let me start with the positive: I never wrote any reviews before, so the fact that Keelo has made me come here out of free will to do so is a testament of how good this app is. I mean, if you’re into CrossFit and HIIT workouts and know at least the basics of it, trust me, you need to look no further. This app got you covered. The interface, attention to details... It is all so good! However, there are 2 setbacks which prevents me from giving the app a deserving 5-star rating: - Apple Watch connection is a bit glitchy. So far my watch has not been able to update the workout of the day unless I sign out and back in again in the app on the phone. I’ve tried everything I could in order to solve this issue. Eventually I got in touch Keelo Support and they said they didn’t know what was happening since no one else reported that fault apart from me and could not help me any further apart from suggesting me to do things I had tried before. I guess I’ll just have to keep signing in and out of the app so far if I intend to use my watch in the middle of the wod which does make a difference and makes it a lot more fluid to use. - I wish they had wods and strengths workouts which involved muscle-ups - ring and bar. I can understand why they might not have added them considering it’s a pretty skilled movement but it’d be nice to consider ex-gymnasts or people who can actually perform the movement and give scaled options for those who don’t. Out of all the 500 wods - which are highly varied and broad - none of them has at least one with MU’s. Apart from those I highly recommend this app to anyone who wants to stay fit and not bored in a very affordable way.
I normally run powerlifting programs but purchased a Keelo subscription a couple months ago because I wanted to change up the routine with something very different that had a heightened focus on cardio and conditioning that I could run on a caloric deficit. I chose Keelo because I liked that it had a balance between Metcon and strength training (it’s functionally a personal CrossFit program), and for the first half of the formula (ie., Metcon), I am reasonably pleased with Keelo’s offerings. The workouts are relatively user friendly while also being challenging enough (and many of the movements) can be “scaled” down for novices or those who are otherwise unable to complete the movement. For what I wanted out of the Metcon side of the app (ie., an intense but easy to follow, shorter duration alternative to spending an hour on a stair climber), I think it’s a solid app. Where things sort of fall off the rails for me is the strength training component. There’s just not much about the programming that makes sense to me. The app wants you to only do one strength exercise per workout, which means at most four or five exercises a week. While that may seem reasonable in theory (ie., you don’t want to overtax your body before switching to an intense conditioning workout), in practice, Keelo’s strength programming is varied to the point of being incoherent. There are dozens of different strength exercises with different lift variations and (theoretically) periodized workouts, and in the end, it’s all too much to be useful to anybody with any kind of strength goals. If you can only do a maximum of five strength exercises a week (and most users probably do no more than two or three), then the only way to bring structure and coherence to that side of your workout is to limit the kinds of strength exercises you’re doing. I have had the app for two months now and have been running it four or five times a week, and I haven’t done a proper back squat or a front squat in over a month. Yeah, I’ve done squat variations (split squats, overhead), but the back squat is too important of an exercise to fall out of a your strength programming for longer than a week—especially if you’re not doing front squats either. With five strength exercises a week, you should have no more than 8-10 movements (and two or three of them should be foundation movements you do every single week). With three exercises a week, you should have no more than five. Keelo offers dozens, which virtually guarantees that you will plateau almost immediately and/or you will never get experienced enough at any single movement to actually perform it correctly. And if you go against Keelo’s staff suggestion and try to run two or three strength exercises in a single workout, which the app actually allows you to do (and which is not all that thing considering how often the strength exercise is what you might call an assistance exercise anyway), Keelo’s programming isn’t smart enough to build your programming around the exercises you have already done that day or the day or two prior. Numerous times since purchasing the subscription, the app has told me to do (for example) shoulder presses of one kind or another two or three days in a row. And then no more shoulder work for the next two or three weeks. It suffices to say that this is not adequate strength programming. It’s so inadequate, it barely counts as programming at all. I would not recommend the strength training component of Keelo to a novice lifter—and certainly not anybody who has reached an intermediate level. Novices will get some benefit purely on account of the fact that novices will get some benefit out of almost anything, but the programming is clearly not designed for people with even modest strength training goals, so if you’re like me and are attracted to the product because it tries to do both conditioning and strength training in one package, you might be better off running two different apps. But if you’re really just here for the Metcon stuff and think of the strength work as an add-on component that you’re not really going to incorporate into your fitness goals...eh, give it a shot I guess.
Have had for almost a year now, won’t cancel anytime soon. This app has taught me the breakdowns of every movement and gave me the confidence to build on my own. So thankful for this, I do however wish you had the option to do without the videos and having to click the next arrow after each exercise in the middle of the workouts. Otherwise I haven’t been able to find an app that comes close to being on the KEELO level !!
