  • Simplistic - ridiculously expensive at $2.99/myth

    By paj72dk
    This is a simple app to get you started. Watch out for the monthly plan. Not only is it expensive it is also difficult to unsubscribe.
  • Disappointed

    By Lauren Siefken
    I bought this app because it was Apple Watch compatible. It has the same workout as my old app (but more expensive !)I love the timing/intervals. But, I do not see any benefit of it being on my watch! I cannot skip or pause the workout from my watch, only see the interval time and what is next:( Also, it does not show pace or interval distances . The audible does not always alert to walk or run. It is turned on but only randomly gives audible commands to walk or run. Frustrating. Just wish I could get my $ back.
  • Higher rating for premium, but bait and switch as a free app

    By cosboydan76
    This trains you for a week, and then refuses to work with you anymore unless you pay $8. Theoretically that seems like a reasonable price, but the only reason anyone downloads this one instead of the “couch to 5k” app it is imitating is freeness as opposed to $3. So essentially it’s only special selling point is a complete lie that you don’t find out until you’ve already downloaded it.
  • Great!!!

    By Tkhold
    I lost 30lbs with this app and a good diet. My times have definitely improved, and went from tough hesitant start to and defining finish. Definitely recommend this for start off that jogging/running goal!!
  • Not really free

    By Pollie30
    The app gives you the schedule for the first 2 weeks. If you want the full 8-week training program, you have to upgrade for $10 or more.
  • Must still use your phone.

    By Agrlmom
    I downloaded this app so I could run without my phone and just use my watch. I have cell data on my watch but when I got 0.1 mike away from my phone the app stopped working. So I had to time my runs separately. If you don’t mind running with your phone close by, buy away. Otherwise, use a different app.

    I already feel like I’m making progress it’s my first day
  • Great! When it works...

    By Weenie mom
    I was loving this app however I got sick of carrying my phone and was delighted to learn that you could use it with your Apple Watch without your phone. Issue is, it’s really glitchy. First off, you have to start the workout from your phone, so by the time I’m out the door I’m already 30 seconds into my countdown. You also do not have the ability to pause it. Once your are away from your phone, good luck. I’ve yet to have a whole run where it worked the whole time. Either it completely stops giving you notifications or the notifications come prematurely or at the wrong time. I find myself having to memorize the workout and manually having to time it. Watching a clock while you are running is counterproductive. Waste of money unless the glitches are fixed.
