- Build a personalized training plan using Freeletics’ AI-Coach and easily adjust your workout to fit your day.
- App includes options for people at different fitness levels.
- New users can select their fitness level on a sliding scale from “not fit at all” to “really fit.” The levels include descriptors to help inform the user about what qualifies for each level such as “I lose my breath when walking up a couple flights of stairs.”
- Includes a 14-day money-back guarantee.
- Limited free content.
- App lacks images of people in larger bodies.
- Not for those who don’t like sharing information. Freeletics asks for a lot of personal details upfront in an onboarding questionnaire before granting access to the personalized training plan.
- With training program names such as “Shred & Burn,” some users may feel the app is too intense; it is most suitable for exercise enthusiasts rather than new or casual exercisers.
- The app privacy disclosure reveals a long list of data that may be linked to your identity and that Freeletics may use, including contact information, purchases, usage data, identifiers and location information to track you across apps and websites owned by other companies.
- Although it costs less than most gym memberships, at $114.99 per year, Freeletics is on the higher end for online fitness programs.
Bottom Line: Freeletics is ideal for anyone seeking fitness motivation and a library of workouts that can be done from wherever they are with or without equipment.
