This is one of the best workout apps in my opinion (and I have tried and paid for DailyBurn and ACTIVE by Popsugar). The instructors are awesome. I love that you can follow certain concepts and bookmark classes that you want to try for later. I love the variety of different workouts- NEOU has truly kept me sane while the gyms are closed because of COVID-19.
I love the Indian dancing, yoga and funky dance classes. My kids like the HIT, boxing and kickboxing classes and my husband likes the strength classes. We hook it up to our cheap projector and have daily classes at home. I can’t recommend NEOU highly enough. We’ve been in quarantine since February and we’re all in much better shape.
I’m glad this isn’t particularly expensive because the offerings aren’t great (but a decent substitute while I’m being forced to work out at home). The most frustrating thing is that most of the classes I’ve tried are mislabeled (a lot of “no equipment needed” classes actually do require weights). And a lot of classes claim to be 45 minutes but are actually only 30 something minutes (sorry, but it makes a difference). Today I took a class that was supposed to be a 60 minute HIIT classes but ended up being about 40 minutes of work and FIFTEEN MINUTES of the coach giving a motivational speech at the end about intentions. It was a huge waste of time. Like I said, this will do until I can go back to a real gym, and fortunately it’s not too expensive to keep the subscription for awhile.
Since being on lockdown, I have turned to this app, having visited their beautiful midtown NYC location in the past. It has been great trying out different concepts and classes I would have never otherwise tried. Definitely worth the subscription to have full access.
I am so frustrated!!! I paid for the six month subscription because they had so many “dance” centered work out videos. However, more than half of them don’t even go with the music!!! (Meaning the rhythm, and timing is all off). This is incredibly frustrating when you are trying to be motivated to work out and get your groove on. At first I thought (unfortunately) that their class leaders had no rhythm. However, after doing a little more research it seems that maybe they don’t have music rights (or lost music rights) to some of the class songs, and sloppily dubbed other songs over. I noticed this specifically in a JJ dance video where the teacher specifically taught a combo to the words of a Cardi B song (I got dollars, I got chains) and then something totally different played (while the teacher was saying the lyrics to the other song) and it did not even come close to matching the timing. I realize as a dance teacher myself, that music companies can be pretty difficult about music rights in public videos, but as a large fitness company, that I have to pay a subscription to, they should be more vigilant at making sure the quality of their videos are high, and not sloppily done with music dubbed over without even making sure the rhythms match. Still in my first week of the 14 day trial, and almost certain I will be cancelling my subscription.
No previews available of the videos. App freezes constantly. Can’t fast forward to see if I’d like the class.
Music is everything when it comes to boosting up your will and motivation to get up and move on my opinion. And a workout with bad music, is a recipe for boredom and quitting. Cool idea with variety of classes and instructors though.
Have been booted out repeatedly despite signing up for free trial that came with the option of selecting the annual fee. Waste of time. I better not have any charges on my account.
During the corona virus, can’t workout at the gym and yea I can workout outside but if I want to watch and be able to exercise indoors... where’s the free subscriptions???
