Aaptiv is ranked with 4.8/5 stars in the official iTunes store by more than 32,000 members, making it the #21st most popular app in the health and fitness category. The majority of the reviews are positive and people talk about how motivating and professional trainers are. Also, it would be a unique experience working out with this app due to the lack of visual workouts.
On the other hand, on Google Play this app received only 3.5 stars from 5 from more than 7,000 members. Most of them liked the wide variety of workouts and its general dynamic, but there were some that complained about the costs.
According to a post that Brett Williams made on Men’s Health website, the app has the ability to make you get out of your comfort zone, but after some time it is just a supplement to your workout routine. Though, he said it is worth trying it if you want to imagine yourself enjoying a group training session at a low cost.
