H.D.I.P.P.Y. on 7/3/2018
So many bugs. The video skips, and now I can’t even use the app because it keeps telling me I earned a badge, to which I X it out, and it keeps coming back. Paid 40 bucks for premium that I can’t even use.
Bummed
humpe1jr on 7/3/2018
I’m so disappointed that I can’t get this app to work smoothly. First of all, despite troubleshooting and reading tips online, I can’t get the audio coaching to work, requiring me to look at the screen and read what step is next rather than just listening, messing up my flow. Also, now I keep getting pop ups in the app showing what “level” I’m at for core, legs, and cardio. Good info to know, but it continues to pop up even while I’m in a session. I love my Fitbit and love the Fitbit coaching app and wish this one would work as smoothly. Please fix!
Need update pleaseee
Brit0813 on 7/2/2018
Mine worked just fine until it started asking me to rate it and connect to my FitBit over and over again even after I’ve already done it it still repeats itself... notifications are off re downloaded it logged off and back in still doesn’t work 😔
Takes FOREVER to load routines
spottedmootsie on 7/2/2018
I paid for premium and has it the year, coming up on renewal by seriously considering dropping it. It takes 20 minutes sometimes to load a routine. For someone with limited free time, 20 minutes is wasted time! They have a lot of bugs to work out. Sad, because if it worked properly it’s a good app.
Love it!!
Hdmartin on 7/2/2018
I decided to try yoga with this app when I got my Fitbit, and I LOVE it! I even went premium and love it too! The only issue I have had is the freezing and skipping of poses. Please fix this soon!
So many glitches it causes stress
Jld122 on 7/2/2018
I really wanted to like this app. Unfortunately there are so many glitches its causing more stress and frustration than the yoga is reducing. Good thing I didn’t pay for premium at the start. Can’t believe Fitbit allows this app to pair with its products.
Are the routines always this fast?!
mandeebee333 on 6/25/2018
The speaker could hardly keep up- as soon as she was almost done saying the name and instructions for one pose- it started playing the next. I marked myself as basic, even though I know most poses pretty well- but the basic tempo was STILL too fast for me even during the intro, “getting to know” you session.
Still like the app, but hope for an update
Colorguardcatgirl88 on 6/20/2018
I really do like this app, but I hope they update it soon to accommodate iPhone X users better.
Good workouts, lousy app
vargo231 on 6/13/2018
I like the workouts a lot, nice variety of difficulty levels and I find the moves challenging without being impossible for someone without extensive prior yoga experience. However, the app is an absolute nightmare. The app itself takes forever to load, and then the individual programs themselves also forever, assuming they load at all. Sometimes they just get stuck at “almost there” and I can’t actually use them at all. I paid for the Premium membership, but given these issues I really don’t think it’s worth it.
Don’t waste your money
hp87654321 on 6/10/2018
The app is great when it runs smoothly. I’d say about 40% of the time there is either a glitch or the sound doesn’t work. It’s not perfect, but it is better than nothing. Will not be renewing.
Do NOT buy the premium subscription
kethren on 5/28/2018
Let’s be clear, I loved this app. The yoga sessions are well put together, and I used it for a year or so before deciding to upgrade to premium. That’s when it went south. FitStar / Fitbit is no longer maintaining this app as of 2016(?) and do not allow new premium subscriptions. This is not well publicized and isn’t clear in the app at all. They let me purchase a new premium subscription, but my account never updated past basic because you can’t purchase new subscriptions. I contacted customer service who informed me they couldn’t refund me. Now I’m stuck going through Apple and my credit card to get back $42 for a service I SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN ABLE TO PURCHASE. It is negligent of FitStar to allow purchases in the app that they do not fulfill. I will never use a FitStar product again and am considering ditching Fitbit as well. This app is not worth your time.
Not worth the hassle
Blah1468643780 on 5/23/2018
Neither FitStar nor Fitbit Coach will allow me to log in using my account, I get caught in a loop of “log in using your Fitbit account” —> “your email is already associated with a Fitbit account! Log in with Fitbit...” It doesn’t matter how many times I delete and re-download the app, or re-set my password, and there is nowhere to report technical issues. Not worth the frustration.
Recurring Issue
KaylaRae28 on 5/20/2018
I used this app religiously for about 2 years utilizing the free sessions. Being that I have become more interested and committed to my yoga practice routines, I purchased the yearly subscription. I did read the first review that stated they have gone through similar issues after purchase but was then updated because she did have her issue resolved. I however am getting increasingly less zen about the issue at hand. I reached out to Tara Stiles herself on Instagram politely asking for direction in squaring the issue...no response still. Which brings me back to the App Store comments section, and to this post, I really am hoping for a breakthrough.
Quirky. Not user friendly.
BraveMommy1 on 5/13/2018
You are supposed to be able to set for time and difficulty. It is only possible when you are actually in the video. Also, it will say you are on a 30min routine and then revert to a 48min routine. That’s a problem on a lunch break.
Don’t expect to pay and use the same day
BzParent on 5/11/2018
This app is so annoying. I use it in a pinch. Wanted a quick yoga session this morning. Upgraded to Premium. And guess what, 25 minutes later my account is charged but I still can’t access the locked sessions. From reading another reviewer’s experience, it should be unlocked in the next day or two. (Wish I’d read before buying!) In that case, my annual plan shouldn’t start running today. That’s cheating the customer, and most annoying that I’ve now missed my workout window for the day. But they have my money. Get your act together FitStar - er Fitbit (no live customer support, I tried; and it turns out fitbit owns this but as big as they are they don’t have any even echat support). At least let people know that if they buy today, they won’t be able to use the app for a few days. Bogus. 2 star v 1 bcz I’ve used app in past and like the convenience (when downloading doesn’t take ages).
Wow!
cjreign on 4/21/2018
Ok so working out lately has been not something I looks forward to but since I started doing this yoga my body feels looser and the stress of school and parents and life flutters away and it has increased my balance and my state of mid i love this so far.
I have the free version
Jeidicnbxjsjnzjoakab on 4/16/2018
I have not upgraded to Premium or paid for anything yet and I love what this app has to offer. The sessions are never buggy for me, even though I have 0gb of storage on my phone. I've thought many times to upgrade to premium but other reviews make me wary. So, until there is positive feedback for Premium, I'm sticking to the free version- which I think everyone should give a try!
Bought Premium - Sessions Still Locked
Pokerspice on 4/16/2018
I purchased the premium service for a year. All of these sessions are still locked. I contacted them twice. I got an email saying to send them a receipt. Which I did. No response. I’ve emailed them four more times. No response. I deleted and reinstalled the app 3 times. I’m contacting Apple today to get a refund if Fitbit doesn’t fix it by noon. Horrible customer service. ***Updated to four stars. Immediately after writing the negative review, they unlocked the premium service. I don’t know if it was just a timing coincidence or if my review sped up the process. Now I have my sessions, and I desperately need them, so I’m happy about that.
Needs to be updated!
UnbreakableGirl on 4/13/2018
I used to love this app (when it worked). Now even though I tried to update to premium, I got none of the premium workouts unlocked. Glad I didn’t try to buy the whole year...I will give better rating when it’s been updated and actually unlocks workouts that you’ve paid for!
I love it!!
Wkree on 4/6/2018
I just started FitStar Yoga and I love it! It helps me calm down after a crazy and stressful day. I never knew doing yoga is so AMAZING!! I will be using this app for a very long time. I would definitely recommend this app to anyone who wants to start to do yoga. Brooke
Fantastic app
PapaDave618 on 4/1/2018
This is the best app I personally have found. It doesn't just show you the poses, it has routines you can follow along with. Young, old or somewhere in between, this app facilitates the beginner to the experienced. This app doesn't have the yoga models that do outlandish stretches, it coaches you just to do the poses to best of your ability at the stage of yoga you are in at the present time. I never was one for exercising much, but after having health issues when I was 50, I decided to change my lifestyle. I started eating healthier and searching the internet for exercising apps. Found some nice muscle toning apps & started walking more. My kids gave me a Fitbit watch which led me to this app. I couldn't be happier. I am more healthier & limber than I have been in years & I am no health fanatic at all. Oh, and as a bonus being a golfer, becoming more limber has help my golf game tremendously. If you're looking to get healthier & slowing down the effects of "Father Time" I highly recommend this app.
Not for beginners
Marlo Clingman on 3/28/2018
I have never taken a yoga class. I have watched a lot of Yoga with Adrienne on YouTube and loved it, but wanted more accurate stats for my Fitbit so I was happy to see that this app came out. Unfortunately it's pretty intense and only gives a few seconds for each move, allowing no time for settling into the pose. Also, every other move is either plank or down dog - my wrists are killing me! I signed up for premium so I could modify the sessions, but the intensity did not change and instead it made the 60 minute, easy session I requested into a 90 minute, normal to hard session. I really hope they work on updating this so that anyone can use it. Some basic how to videos would also be nice. If you are looking for an easily modifiable workout with great, progressive build up and instructions, I highly recommend FitStar personal trainer instead.
Annoyed
Rhilanon on 3/18/2018
Initially I was very happy with the app, but over the months since I become a paying member it started taking forever to load, crashing...eventually I’ve found myself spending more time trying to get the app to start than I have doing yoga. I like the app when it works, but it’s becoming a huge waste of time.
Taking way too long to fix significant bug
nicoke e on 3/6/2018
Been using for years with premium membership. For over a month though I've been going back and forth with IT support because the app won't let me customize the length of my routine anymore. I was late to meetings because this function wasn't working and I had no idea. Support is not providing a timeline and doesn't seem to be too concerned even though editing the timing is one of two reasons to actually pay for the app. Very frustrating
Been buggy for quite some time now.
SnCCohen on 3/6/2018
This is to be the best so out there. Since fit bit bought them it seems to have been put on the back burner and had become just a conduit for recurring revenue instead of staying on top of their game. Still one of the better ones as it is fitness focused not mystical meditation focused. Also a good variety of workouts. Just get ready for glitches and crashes from time to time. My wife has not been able to use it for weeks because it just crashes.
Not sure what happened
Goodasmama on 2/26/2018
I have always used this app for practicing yoga but these past two weeks in the middle of the sessions it would exit out. At first it would only happen one time but now it will crash three times in one session. So frustrating. Not to mention it doesn’t remember my login so I have to log in all over again.
No longer working?
FSUUCLA on 2/21/2018
Upgraded to premium yesterday - I used it a while back and loved it - but now it doesn’t work at all. They did manage to charge my credit card but when I try to customize sessions it says I have to upgrade. Already spent an hour trying to get this straightened out. Hopefully they will agree to a refund.
Paid for Premium...buyer beware...
AlbannachLass on 2/13/2018
After 3 days of back and forth with support I now have access to my Fitstar Yoga account and the Premium sessions. While support did their best to help me, they must have a script they have to follow and it is mighty frustrating. Anyway do yourself a favor use the app in it’s free form until you’ve exhausted all the sessions. Then consider buying the Premium app. Will update this review after using the Premium sessions. Caveat Emptor!
WILL INJURE YOU
DougStorm on 2/8/2018
Poses clipped. App had the same issues nearly 4yrs ago & they dont fix it. Find a different app unless you wanna speed through a stretch & get injured.
No sound
Cindy Leigh on 2/1/2018
Was excited to try it out. The video played fine but there was no sound. Tried to follow along with the video but was too confusing to keep up. Please fix this sound problem.
disappointed
paunsears on 1/16/2018
this is my third year using this app, which renews every december, i haven’t used in in a few months but in the past it’s always translated the workout in apple watch fitness. today it didn’t. not sure if it was a fluke, i ran through another workout real quick by just nesting it and same thing. the best part about the app was this feature. gonna bail
No sound
mayalovespodcasts on 1/15/2018
Frustrated because I can only get audio through headphones (which doesn’t work well when trying to do yoga and view a screen). I tried everything they suggested and know my phone is not on mute because all other apps play audio just fine. Why doesn’t this one?
Love it
@nataliaduquew on 1/10/2018
Very cool, I’m using it everyday in addition to my weight training and HIIT at the gym. I can already see faster recovery and increased flexibility
Pretty boring
suebisme on 1/8/2018
I just felt like the routines were mainly focused on stretching with some balance poses here and there. I paid for premium hoping that the ability to customize would be useful or the additional access to other routines would improve things but not so much. Routines are slow to load so do this in advance of your session- its frustrating to wait for. Also, i get why it happens but the choppiness and repetitiveness of the narration gets old.
We need a Apple TV app!!!
RVXO on 1/5/2018
I would love to see an Apple TV app so I can do my workouts in my bedroom at home.
Premium not reflected
JVSSCOOL on 1/3/2018
Please help. I should have listened to the other reviewer. I bought premium but after one week the app keeps saying that I am premium but won’t let me unlock any of the workouts
Regretting my premium subscription
LaurieJS on 12/25/2017
I enjoyed the app before I decided to upgrade to premium a few months ago. I liked the quick 10-15 minute routines. As an appreciative customer, I decided to pay for the premium. The daily premium routines are 25-35 minutes long instead of the quick routines I was enjoying. You have the option to shorten the session to “About 20 minutes” yet the session will still be 25 minutes or longer. I’ve contacted customer support and received two different answers. One said the engineers are trying to fix it and the other response said that it is just the way it is. Regardless of how many times I mark a pose too difficult, it keeps returning in my next sessions. Even at the beginner level, difficult inversions keep showing up. I am disappointed that I subscribed because I can’t get the free sessions I enjoyed.
Best I’ve used
Hal the 5th on 12/14/2017
Tons of great stuff here, especially for being free. And it integrates well with my fit bit obviously. It would be great if it did a better job guiding your breathing.
Doesn’t flow
TrBehr on 12/12/2017
I used to love this app but then I started going to an actual studio and I can see the difference. The poses don’t always flow, a lot of the time it cuts off in the middle of a pose so then your sides are uneven and then they don’t tell you how to set up the pose. It’s hard to just follow a model when you can’t do what they can do. It has a beginner option but it doesn’t make the poses any more accessible to those who have never even stretched for ages. I don’t recommend this app, after trying it again after going to a studio it was frustrating and slow and the flows they have were not any good. You need to set up for poses and they didn’t set you up for any of the poses they just tossed whatever pose they could in next without thinking of what muscles were working and where. If you’re wanting to get into yoga check out a studio or another online course if a studio is not accessible. This app will only set you up incorrectly and not benefit you if you don’t know anything about yoga. Also note that it asks you to rate a pose if it’s too hard or too easy and this is silly. There are always ways to make a pose more challenging and even if you can’t fully get into a pose it does not mean it isn’t accessible in your body. Yoga looks different for everyone. You don’t need to balance to do crow but if you can’t balance it that doesn’t mean it’s “too hard”. Seriously find a nice studio or find something online with like yogaworks that actually knows how to teach a yoga class to beginners.
mostly good, few nitpicky problems
lizzito_ on 12/2/2017
i just really wish it would let me repeat the sessions that are part of my ‘fitness journey’ or whatever. i started the pillars and hips one and had to bail out because i was tired and i foolishly thought i’d be able to restart it. i was obviously wrong and now i missed out on a great workout. it shows the poses but as far as i can tell there’s no way to redo it.
Takes too long to load.
TheDessie on 11/15/2017
With the last update, the app takes around 90 seconds to load. Support was useless. I won’t be renewing.
Fix the bug issues!!!!
Sarah dear on 11/12/2017
Seriously getting frustrated that half the time I can’t even get the app to open and load. Would be a great app if they would fix these glitches.
Question
Sparty530 on 11/11/2017
If you go premium with fit bit yoga could you have access to fit bit coach also! Or would you have to pay separately?
Has potential but...
Jodzzle on 11/7/2017
I've been using this for about a month. These practices are disjointed and confusing. Maybe it's personal preference but i feel like yoga is much more effective when it flows. Im only giving it two stars because I can time my yoga practice and log my active minutes.
Just so perfect!
Desert Sunrise on 10/31/2017
I subscribed yesterday, and immediately checked out a number of the practices, and was thrilled. 😄👍 I am re-gaining my fitness regimen, and yoga is integral to it. Did Morning Mix this morning. Loved it, although I did wish it ended in savasana. From what I’ve seen, there is no spirituality involved. I highly recommend this app!!! 😄💕❤️👍🌷🌸🌺🐝😄
This app went down hill
Lilshap84 on 10/19/2017
I used to use this app pretty religiously back in the day. Loved it. I ended running out of space on my old phone so unfortunately I had to remove the app. I recently re-downloaded the app to get back on my yoga game. Happily purchased the 1yr long subscription but still have yet to access any of the features. I have wait 5 days and while the money was taken out immediately of my account, the premium features are yet to open. I am currently on the phone with tech support who has no idea what app I’m even talking about, says he can’t locate my account or my purchase. Then proceeds to tell me that since he can’t find my purchase ( to which I have screen shots of my bank statement and iTunes subscription pages ) so I will have to re purchase the subscription. Told me that it’s obviously user error. He began to say that I needed a confirmation number for my purchase. When you buy something through an app you don’t get confirmation numbers. After spending 20min on the phone, he then says that he doesn’t deal with FitStar and that someone will email me about my issue with in the next couple weeks. Told me just to sit by and wait. Unacceptable, that $40 was taking out rather quickly and for what? I will be getting my money back and I will not be using this app any more. I hate leaving reviews, especially poor ones but this made me so grumpy. Tread carefully when purchasing the subscription for this app.
Premium Access not working
cristama on 10/17/2017
I LOVE this app, but for some reason my Premium Membership isn't allowing asses to all the routines. I've tried restoring purchases but doesn't make a difference.
Nice app!
ZenaA96 on 10/14/2017
This is a good yoga app. I enjoy the practices the music and the review of poses afterwards for personalized comefort level. My only complaint is the speed to load the practice workout is very slow. If it takes too long to load I get impatient and lose interest and will move to one of my other yoga apps with preloaded built in to app routines. Please optimize for better loading speed. Thanks!
Thank you FitStar Yoga!
MarcyJH on 10/7/2017
Exactly what I’ve been searching for! Love that the poses are show on my Apple Watch!! It’s perfect that I can rate the poses to custom my sessions! Will remain a FitStar member a long time!! Thank you!
Loved the app until it stopped working on my phone
Stimey Luv 1 on 10/3/2017
After the latest update to iOS11, and then iOS11.1, and even with the latest update to the Fitstar Yoga app, the app completely crashes when I try to use it on my iPhone. And it still takes forever to load on my iPad Pro. Thank god that it actually still loads and works on my iPad, otherwise I would t be able to use the app at all, and there would go the daily routine I’ve developed since January 1st of this year. I have yet to miss a day of yoga, and I’m grateful for the app and how it’s grown with me. I’ve lost a lot of weight, and I’ve gained muscle tone and strength, so the exercise itself is fantastic. But please take the time to fix the app and eliminate the bugs. No matter how many times I try to delete and reinstall the app, it still doesn’t work the way it should on either my phone or my iPad. Especially my iPhone.
