I have subscribed and use Aaptive for several years in conjunction with my personal training plan. Recently I opened the app and was required to answer several closed ended questions that did not allow an accurate reflection of my fitness goals or activities. Now when I open the app I have to navigate an irrelevant daily training plan to find the workouts I wish to access. I would like to be able to turn off this superficial and unwelcome fitness advice and return to bring able to select workouts according to my own needs and preferences. At a minimum put the saved workouts on the bottom bar of the app instead of burying it!
I was going to try this as it was on WW app and I liked the walking one they have in there but when I purchase this it does not offer any walking and you have to go to a gym to do the workout do why am I paying for this. So I cancel my subscription as they don’t give you a choice.
I love everything about this app! The instructors are awesome and very motivating! They also give clear instructions and friendly reminders. The Coach Feature is also very motivating although some tweaks could be made to make it better. The music that is played during workouts is spot on!!
[NEW REVIEW] The changes posted were temporary and a brand new version of the app came out, with an even better routine and a the COACH feature which makes it so easy to follow up with your workouts. 5 stars again Aaptiv, well done! [PREVIOUS REVIEW] I absolutely love this app and use it almost every day. However, I was mid-program in a 4 weeks program and today I woke up to all my favorite workouts and basically every program being removed to the app. Why? I really hope this was an accidental move because it now sadly has a quarter of the potential it had yesterday as an app. I would give 5+ stars to yesterday’s app, 2 stars to today’s..
I’ve used this app for two years and it used to be great. Key words are “used to be”. I now give this app a one star. BUYER BEWARE - they went and gutted the entire app and removed a LOT of content. Most disturbing of all was that they removed the race training plans - WHILE people were in the middle of them (such as myself). All of the goodwill that they had built up is now gone and I no longer trust the company. Can’t wait for my subscription to be over. They made all of these changes while keeping their price the same. They used to be great - then they decided to fire their best trainers and remove content. Also - the music is mostly all electronic, unrecognizable stuff now. It’s a shame - it used to be so great that I recommend it to a lot of people. I’d never recommend it in its current form and now tell people to stay away from it. It’s a train wreck of a company with a management team that lacks transparency and has serious communication issues. They put their customers last. Pro Tip: If you go through with purchasing this app, stay far away from their Facebook community! Like Aaptiv, it used to be awesome - now it’s overrun with a group of women who post daily videos of themselves bragging about their plastic surgery.
Loved this app when it first came out. Now you can’t even select the workouts you wanna do... they force you to do a specific workout each day and you can’t even enter their library unless you complete it. Which defeats the purpose for me as I already have my own workout schedule I do on my own and wanted to use the app for cardio, elliptical, and treadmill workouts only. Now I can’t even do that unless THEY tell me I can on that particular day. Plus what’s the point of asking me if I wanna do outdoor running (I don’t) if you’re gonna tell me I have to do it anyway? Pointless. I feel like I wasted money.
I don’t need a ton of features. I just want the workouts, which is what this app was before the recent update. Excessive navigation means I won’t use the app and will likely just rely on YouTube. 🤷🏼♀️
My sole purpose for this app was the boxing workouts. It is why I decided to go with the annual membership. Last month Aaptive decided to delete this entire category (along with rowing) so I am now stuck with this membership until my contract expires. Extremely disappointed.
I really hate that Aaptive now forces you to go through the trouble of adding your “fitness goals” and answering a bunch of pointless questions. I’m very motivated to work out on a consistent basis and I don’t want or need assistance with my goals. I always enjoyed that the app used to provide a more a la carte workout experience than other fitness apps - please consider allowing people to opt out of the coaching plans altogether.
I would love to recommend this app, because I enjoy the workouts. But the subscription process was very wonky and soured the whole experience. I was charged multiple subscription fees for the same monthly service. I’m still trying to work with Apple to resolve the issue.
