not really meant for beginners or people that need lower impact/ modifications. The workouts seem great but I was mostly confused and there’s no way to keep track of which workouts I’ve done? Like, if I’m trying to do the alive workouts, I couldn’t remember where I left off. It’s disappointing because her videos and Instagram workouts are so great. Will be deleting.
This app is so articulate, amazing and very well worth the money. Whitney and her team gave this app all the aspects needed to fulfill your journey of becoming a better version of you. With videos, journaling, achievement badges, progress pictures and SO many workout options available, this app is just amazing. Can’t wait to finish my alive 1.0 and head on to 2.0!!
I am not a massive gym rat or anything, but I got this at the beginning of the pandemic to help me get some movement. I did the Alive Inside program in its entirety and I saw major results. I don’t weigh myself, but physically, my body changed dramatically and my strength was amazing. I love the new updates that they’re coming out with! I am so excited that they finally have warm ups, as I was starting to injure myself without proper warm ups. I guess my only critiques would be that it is not the most beginner friendly. I work out somewhat regularly and I still really really struggle with some of the workouts sometimes, having to give up occasionally, which is disheartening and makes me just want to quit it all together. I think it would be a really great thing if they could add some modifications if someone is say, not able to do push ups for the 45 seconds, or offer a separate, more beginner friendly program. I know Whitney is at the peak of fitness, so I’m sure her lighter programs feel like beginner stuff to her, but for someone that works at a computer all day and rarely gets to be active, it’s a lot, haha. I think it would also be really great if it offered tips on form during some of the exercises so that people don’t potentially injure themselves or do a workout improperly. But really, I would give this app like an A-, and I think it really has a ton of potential for getting all the way there to an A+
Perfect app for beginners and intermediate lifters wanting to gain confidence in the gym! I can’t wait to continue building my strength and getting healthier with the help of this app! FAVORITE WORKOUT APP AND PROGRAMS EVER
Alive is unlike any other fitness app I have used. The workouts are FIRE but also easy to follow. You don’t have to have loads of experience to do them. The UI is beautiful and the UX is sooooo good. The timers, the journaling, the videos showing the exercises, the list goes on and on. If you are on the fence about paying for this app, DO IT!!!
I really love the workouts and the design of the app, the only think I don’t like is that rest days are a little confusing. They are not highlighted in the next up section like a regular workout day, nor are they counted in the history. I wish there was a way to check off and track your rest day, maybe log that you did some stretching or went for a walk, and it would be great if it would show up in the journey history.
I’ve never paid for a fitness app before this one but it is ABSOLUTELY worth the money. There is a ton of variety in the workouts, which makes me excited to go to the gym & workout consistently. The app is super user friendly, I love that Whit demonstrates each move & the community is amazing. Can’t say enough positive things about this stellar app.
Whitney knows how to grow a booty!! I’m halfway through the Alive 1.0 program and I’ve seen major booty and leg gains as well as overall muscle growth!! Her workouts are fun and very creative!! Many exercises that I’ve never done or seen before. I’m loving the app! I look forward to working out every day! I do wish there were meal ideas but overall a top notch app!
Well I knew I would love this app. I simply love Whitney with all my heart mind soul & spirit, okay. But guys this app is incredible! Something about having workouts and even rest days planned within a program is so motivating. I even feel fully prepared to face the gym instead of being nervous to approach different sections/machines. While I love basically every aspect of the app, I think my favorite is the journaling section. A healthy lifestyle isn’t just about fitness- it’s about mental health too! and it’s just so perfect that Whit would include a journaling section. I workout every morning and while I recover (lol) I use the gratitude journal to record what i’m thankful for that day. Truly an incredible game-changing feature. I absolutely recommend this app to anyone and everyone seeking to build healthy habits and live a healthy lifestyle.
The app looks great, but I wish it told you which muscle each workout is targeting so I can get some of that mind-muscle connection I hear so many people talking about. I’m a newb at lifting so some of these moves I have no idea which muscles they work because I could be doing it wrong and targeting a different muscle than intended.
