The review leaves no stones unturned to bring you the true picture of the app. If you are looking to work out, lose weight, or gain muscle from the comfort of your home, you will love FiiT!

Key Takeaways & Highlights

  • Like choices and variety in workout routines;
  • Want to get fit from the comfort of your home;
  • Like to workout at your own pace;
  • Want to track your progress without difficulty;

FiiT Background

Behind FiiT are three creative friends, Daniel Shellard, Ian McCaig, and Sammi Adhami, who wanted to make workouts easily accessible for all. They have certainly managed to fulfill their goal as the app has a whopping rating of 4.9/5 on the Apple Store by 38.3K individuals. It shows so many people have benefitted from its training plans and short workout classes. FiiT app fared less on Google Playstore. It has a 4.4/5 rating by only 3810 users.

The FiiT app’s 100k+ downloads on Google Playstore make up for its low rating and less number of reviews on the store.

Before we get into all the unique features of FiiT, we’ll outline the steps you take when you launch the app for the first time.

  • As soon as you open the app, it asks you to join using your email address.
  • It also allows you to opt-out of receiving emails from the app.
  • Once you join via email address, it asks you your goal with the following options: lose weight, get stronger, improve flexibility, general fitness, postnatal fitness.
  • It then recommends training plans and short classes based on your goal.

Once you join using your email address and set a goal, you get to feast your eyes on the studio-like, minimalist, and modern UI.

Core Features

Workouts and Short Classes

There are a variety of workouts available. You have over 700 workout options. It may seem a bit intimidating at first to have so many options, but you can try the classes out to see which ones you like the best.

FiiT workouts and classes are divided into 3 specifics: cardio, strength, and pillar. All the categories and workouts, such as yoga, pilates, stretching, etc are included in these three.

The workouts range from easy to tough, depending on your goals and workout level. This saves you from being overwhelmed by tough workout plans, especially when starting. The workouts include warm-up and cool-down. Their duration also varies, such as 10 minutes, 25 minutes, 40 minutes, and 60+ minutes. In this way, you can choose the workout duration that matches your level.

New workouts are available every other day. When you open a workout class, you can even see its rating out of 5 stars. You also get an insight into the class’ popularity as the FiiT app mentions how many times it has been taken.

You can do the workouts at the comfort of your home or you can even visit the gym to practice these workouts. You can sync this app to your watch or wearable device and keep tracking your calorie count. The app also has its real-time FiiT points and its chest strap to track your heart rate, calorie count, and reps.

No equipment is needed to get your workout started!

Our FiiT review shows that without signing up for a FREE trial, you can access up to 3 short classes of 10 minutes each. You can select a short class based on its duration or trainer. However, longer-duration classes are only available in the paid version. The free classes can give you a little taste of how FiiT works: You will have a virtual trainer performing the workout in front of you while commenting on the posture/ exercise and its benefits. There are 20+ training plans to choose from.

Training Plans

FiiT also features 20+ training plans that are focused on a specific goal and range from 2 to 10 weeks of classes. These classes are diverse and provide a variety to the users. However, you can only be part of one training plan. It means that you should be clear on the area you want to work on because you will be part of a plan for its duration that may be 2 to 10 weeks.

The training coaches motivate you to push harder and even guide you regarding maintaining the correct form. In this way, our FiiT review shows that the app is good for beginners as well as advanced members.

FiiT Blog

If you are looking for meal plans and cooking instructions, you will be slightly disappointed by the FiiT app. It focuses specifically on training and working out. The app only provides details regarding meals and nutrition in its FiiT blog.

Other than finding nutritional and meals info, The FiiT blog is also a place to gain motivation, insights into the lives of popular trainers, fitness tips, nutritional details, and more! The FiiT blog is a welcome-additional feature for those who love to feast their eyes on some written words!

FiiT Shop

The app also features FiiT shop catering to the needs of its fitness and health enthusiasts. You can buy equipment and training gear from the FiiT shop. Currently, it has limited products, such as a tracker, mat, and cap. But we are hoping for more variety to come in soon.

FiiT Community

FiiT takes great care of its community. It provides several opportunities for connection, engagement, and collaboration between its community members.

With our FiiT review, we found out that the app allows you to connect to popular social media networks as well. It is a must in this age of technology! You can share your workout progress with friends on social media and can invite them to work out with you for additional motivation and fun. You can even invite your friends to work out with you for additional motivation and fun. One of the distinct features of the FiiT app is that you can also connect it with your TV, so it is not difficult to get your family members to join your workout.

There are also challenges open for everyone to join and make a new record. If you love to push yourself, you will really enjoy these challenges.

Moreover, group classes are available with a countdown clock to show you how much time is remaining to work out virtually with a group. It also shows how many people have joined the class or are ready to join it.

Miscellaneous Content

As already elaborated, FiiT is a unique, modern, and fun fitness app. It not only caters to the advanced needs of young users but makes its features appealing for all age groups. Here we give an honorary mention to few of the FiiT features that we believe stand out:

  • FiiT app sends you push notifications and motivational reminders to work out and reach your fitness goals.
  • FiiT maintains your daily and weekly streak. So you can maintain your streak by using the app to take your classes or training sessions daily. Maintaining your fitness streak is a fun way to continue making progress towards your fitness goal.

FiiT vs. Other apps-How Does The App Compete With The Market?

Compared to other apps like Reshape Me and Tone It Up, the FiiT app has a better rating on Google Playstore and Apple Store:  4.9 on iOS and 4.4 on Android. It is a breath of fresh air in the world of workout apps as it has a wide range of workouts and training plans, unlike Reshape Me. However, this app does not have a meal plan included which can be a bummer for many. But Reshape Me and Tone It Up includes a meal plan.

Like Tone It Up, FiiT also has a seamless UI and amazing interface. However, Tone It Up comes with calendars and badges while FiiT motivates its users with a daily and weekly streak feature. Both the apps also have a great shop with a nice range of products.

As in Reshape Me and Tone It Up, users also need to pay for the full workout experience in FiiT. These apps have limited features in the free plan that may be a letdown for those looking for a free app.

However, for individuals who can afford to pay for a fitness app, FiiT is great. It has variety, class, and distinction with its features, such as group classes and challenges. FiiT has an easy-to-use and studio-like user interface that is intuitive, cool, and fun. Most of all, its workouts are suited for new and advanced users equally.

Customer Service and User Reviews of FiiT

During our FiiT review, we did not need the help of customer service representatives. However, a chat option was available in the FiiT app and the FiiT website. To provide a more authentic touch to our FiiT review, we went on Google Playstore and Apple Store reviews. After reading several FiiT reviews, we found that some were very unhappy with the customer service, one even said, “the support is laughable”, but many were quite satisfied with their experience with the FiiT app.

It was also great to see the FiiT customer service respond positively and actively to the negative reviews. They offered the unsatisfied users an opportunity to email them for a more personalized solution to their problem.

The FiiT website states that it is compatible with Xfinity, Firetv, Samsung Smart TV, Sky, Apple Store, and Google Play Store. However, our FiiT review showed a lot of complaints by google play users about the app’s inability to connect to their Galaxy watch and Garmin watch. Many also complained about its incompatibility with a fitness tracker.

Some people may be off-put by the app’s limited features and functionality for free users. Due to various risks, many people may not feel comfortable adding their payment details to be eligible for the FREE trial. However, those who can afford to pay for the complete experience will certainly benefit from the FiiT app’s diverse and vast workout experience.

FiiT Payments & Subscription

This FiiT review also focuses on the payment methods of the app. The app offers a free trial for 14-days, without which you can consider the app only good for 30 minutes. You cannot access training plans and challenges without adding your payment method.

The app provides two subscription options:

  • You can subscribe to the monthly plan for £20
  • Or you can enjoy the yearly plan for £10.

The best part is that you can cancel your subscription at any time! So even if you want to get a taste of the 14-day free trial, you can do so without getting charged.

Final Review of FiiT and Summary

The FiiT app asks you about your fitness goal and suggests short workout classes and training plans based on your goal and workout level. You can join one training plan that may last from 2 to 10 weeks to help you fulfill a specific fitness goal. You can also compete with friends or strangers and gain FiiT points.

To sum it up, we love the app! We believe that the FiiT app is worth the money because it has so many unique features and studio-like, motivational short classes and training plans for you.
