So much bang for your buck!
I started out wanting to use the app for the workouts. What I found was so much more than I was prepared for. I’ve used the meal planning far more than the exercises and am able to log in my exercises outside of what I have utilized on the app. Being that I am far sighted, the only complaint I have is that the app is no longer viewable on the laptop and I can only see the recipes and workouts on my iPhone. This makes it harder for me to see and read. The workouts are seriously awesome, although the yoga is not my favorite and I have been doing yoga for 20 years now so I have had a lot of instruction. I am combining this platform with other workouts to provide myself an experience that works for me, which would be much more difficult to accomplish without this app. I would use it just for the food. I’ve watched the recipe offerings and options increase dramatically over the last two years. I just wish that I could at least print them out or look at them on a larger screen so I could see them better. I guess I’m just older now and have a harder time than younger people.
I love how customizable the meals and workouts are – especially the meals. I have tons of food allergies, plus the need to eat vegetarian two days a week. 8fit is the ONLY app I’ve seen that allows me to customize to this level, and I love it! I would rate it 5 stars if it weren’t for the shopping list. I tried it only once, because it dropped 3 of the meals (they didn’t show up at all on the shopping list). Plus, when I got home, some of the ingredients I had bought didn’t seem to appear in any of the recipes I had chosen. Third – but this is simply a preference – I wish the shopping list would group foods based on where they will show up in a typical grocery store: all produce grouped together, all dairy grouped together, all canned goods grouped together, all boxed and soft-pack goods grouped together, etc. I tried to select all the vegetables and fruits at once, and found out at the end of my shopping that the citrus was in a different category! So, I had to traipse back over there at the end, with my tired kids in tow, to get the lemons, limes, and oranges. Overall, though, I am loving 8fit! I have decided to continue with the paid plan of $60/year — Thank you for the free, 1-month trial, 8fit. That gave me a chance to try it out, revise, try again, revise, and find what worked just for me. Loving it!
Great app, app seems to be still starting out
The free version:
This app has great exercises and gauges personal ability well by asking how you feel about the difficulty and enjoyment of each workout. They don’t have a lot of options for workouts yet though as it seems like they’ll be adding new ones as they continue to develop. The workouts are about 10-15 mins each and you can do as many as you’d like and the yoga sessions are mostly 15-30 mins so I like to do the tabata combined with my own cardio and weight routine in the morning and a yoga session in the evening. Routine is the key to success and this app really encourages routine, they even offer reminders (but I keep em off cuz I’m navy and my schedule is inconsistent.)
I enjoyed the app enough to try the pro version. The app advertises either $5/month or $10 for 3months. I selected the second option and Apple billed me a recent that says I’m being charged 10/month for three months (so $30 for three months!!) So now I’m paying twice as much for the pro version. Seems like a shady option to begin with but I’ve contacted support and will give them five stars if it’s an honest mistake ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ like I said it’s still a growing app but definitely gife it a shot!
