Okay, so not to invalidate anyone’s feelings or thoughts, but I think some reviews are just dramatic and impractical. Any app providing this much information took a lot of work and should absolutely have a fee! This is a gym membership on your phone, but better, because it’s engaging and fun—and you can do it literally anywhere! If you don’t like the sounds, just mute your sounds or turn it down! The app design is very clean and I love the bear, he’s so fun! $5 a month is truly the perfect price point for this app! Thanks and keep up the good work!!

Update: I love the new design and the new slick bear, but I was sad to lose some functionality! I do a lot of these wakeouts with my boyfriend, who is in a wheelchair, so we skip the leg wakeouts for him and now the skip/change functionality is gone. Please bring it back, or create a way to customize exercises/build a routine. Also, no more daily quote—those were a cool motivation first thing in the morning. Thanks and keep up the good work!

Updated Update: WOW, guys, this app keeps getting better and better! I love the new layout and the sitting/standing workouts help so much! You are the best! So grateful for this app and the amazing developers behind it!

Thank you so much for the updated review! Sorry that we removed the skip functionality. However, we are planning custom routines in the mid-term. Additionally, we're soon releasing a new pack with around 100 new Wakeout exercises that are sitting down only. It will include about 20 - 30 really fun routines. I would love to know what you think about those then!

Thank you for your continued support!

Still loving it!

This is the oldest app on my phone. (Even older than facebook) I finally got it to go through on my iPad which make some things so much easier to do some exercises. Over the changes there have been some great changes and not so great. I love the current version. I have a love hate thing for the music but without it I wouldn’t be as happy when I get down. I love the notifications that pop up. I even got the ipad and iPhone set up to go off at different times of the day which is awesome. I did have a free trial and other offers but I was waiting and saving for the lifetime membership. As so those out there that want a free trail don’t sign up for a life time. Life time usually means you’ve already tested it out and really like it. So if your testing this out go with something small until you know for sure that it’s something you’ll love. I love wakeout and their staff. Friendly, supportive and a great app. At least this is my personal opinion.

Serving people like you gives us immense joy. Being active has brought so much wellness to our lives, and being able to inspire others to take part gives us so much happiness. We're inspired every day by what people are telling us. It's been a wild ride, with lots of updates and changes. And although not all of them great, I'm glad to hear that you've stuck with us as we figure out the best way to help people be more active. Thank you so much!

Fun way to get some movement into your day

I had initially had some issues with the app, but the developer was super responsive and the issue was isolated.

Since then, I’ve used in several locations and really appreciate the approach and videos. I have a very busy, sedentary job, so working out seems impossible—but taking even just a quick 30 seconds of stretch or movement via this app is easy and actually a fun break. And, I’ve gotten more stretch and movement in the middle of my work days using Wakeout than I’ve had previously.

This is not a “serious” workout app—but it isn’t meant to be. It’s meant to get us moving. And it does that well.

As noted previously:

The interface is clean, you input location and energy level or mood to get an exercise selection (and you can use or scroll through to other exercises once presented with one). There doesn’t seem to be a screen for tracking progress (yet), or a way to mark favorite exercises, although it does tell you how many you’ve completed once you’ve completed a wakeout.

So room for improvements, but a great app in this niche.

Developer Response ,

What a wonderful and insightful review! It's exactly people with no time to exercise (most people) that we're working hard to help get a little. Happy we were able to help with your issue! Let us know what else we can do to be the ideal exercise companion for you.

In addition, we're happy to let you know we've added progress tracking and favorites in the pipeline for the near future.
