Aaptiv is the company behind the application with the same name. It was founded in 2015 and has the recognition of the App Store “App of the day”. It is an application that can guide us through our training using audio. To ensure that there are no problems, most of the exercises have images or explanation clips.
At this moment there are more than 200000 users of this service. It can be downloaded from any iTunes compatible device. But you need a continuous internet connection to enjoy the trainers and music without problems. It adapts to different training needs, including pregnant women.
So, given that entire good-sounding premise, we decided to run an Aaptiv review to see if everything is as cool as it sounds.
What exactly does Aaptiv do?
When we log in for the first time, we have to answer a questionnaire that will design our exercise routine. We noticed that we can select the music that “activates” me. Then, although the options are a bit limited, they are still practical:
- Electronic Dance
- Hip Hop
We can also select the level of training. The amount of time we will spend daily. Whether our goal is to gain strength, run faster, or lose weight. And finally the type of training we will apply to our routine. Here you can choose from 9 types of training:
- Running outdoors
- Indoor Cycling
- Strength training
How much does Aaptiv cost?
Like many similar products, they offer a free trial period. Aaptiv’s is for one week. But 7 days isn’t enough time to decide whether to use it for longer. You can then select the one-month option as we did. That way you can enjoy a full training program and decide if it’s what you need.
If you decide, there are no 3 or 6-month plans. You must buy 12 full months.
But that’s not so bad considering a month costs $14.99. Whereas a year plan costs $99.99. If you decide this is your thing you can buy the package for life.
The lifetime plan costs $399.99 and not many apps offer something like that. Besides, the annual renewal is automatic, so keep an eye on your calendar.
Is Aaptiv reliable?
We rarely get an app on the App Store that isn’t reliable. In this case, they’ll do exactly what they promise. They provide a proper workout plan after answering the first login survey. You can configure your user as you progress through the training program. Trainers are specific in their instructions and they help you out with images or clips.
Reading the reviews we could see that very few people were complaining about the quality. The complaints were oriented towards automatic renewal. That’s why we recommend that if you don’t like it you cancel it before the 7 day trial period.
Otherwise, you will be automatically charged for the one-year subscription. Keep this in mind also if you buy the 30-day plan. Their customer service system is reasonable but is far away from being their strong point.
- Possibility of the lifetime subscription.
- Unlike a gym, we can choose the right music for me.
- Free 7-day trial.
- 30 new exercise routines every week.
- Trainers who spread enthusiasm for workout routines.
- Online community for photo sharing and motivation.
- Challenge programs to complete individual or team goals
- You can save the plays we like or share the App with friends.
- Complement new music hits with great hits, depending on the genre.
- Automatic renewal can be a nuisance.
- Getting a refund is not applicable after only 72 hours.
- If you are a weight lover this application is not for you.
- If you don’t have all the equipment, such as a stationary bike, you can’t take full advantage of it.
- Without internet access, it is difficult to access training sessions.
The Aaptiv app is useful for all kinds of people. As long as you choose correctly the level you are in. Furthermore, they have a nice music selection and the training is easy to do. Although in some cases the images and videos can be short.
In the end, we think that the price is affordable. But you only pay by credit card.
Besides, it’s worth it considering that you have access to over 2500 coaches. And that about 30 new classes hang up every week. The feeling of belonging to a community of people who exercise gives it a special touch (they are very present in social media). And it can be synchronized with the calendar.Visit Aaptiv
