Aaptiv is like having a trainer in your ear telling you exactly what to do during your workout.

What’s Aaptiv’s secret habit-forming formula?
- Fresh workouts – Aaptiv adds 30 new classes across several categories, like strength training, running, and yoga, every week to the app.
- A killer soundtrack – Aaptiv workouts are audio-based and perfectly paced to a playlist of exactly the sort of music you want to hear when you’ve got one more sprint interval to get through on the treadmill.
- A supportive community – Aaptiv has over 200,000 members, many of whom actively participate with Team Aaptiv. The group is equal parts inspiring, motivating and welcoming.
- Your own artificially intelligent-assistant – Coach is Aaptiv’s newest feature, an AI-based platform that builds you a personalized health and fitness plan for every day of the week, and then holds you accountable.
When you sign up for Aaptiv, you will be prompted to share information about your health goals, workout preferences (such as days and timeframes), lifestyle habits and even what kind of workout equipment you have access to. From there, Aaptiv Coach will provide you with a personalized plan to help achieve your goals. You’ll be able to easily sort through recommended exercises, or you can choose a class based on your mood that day.
You’ll be able to track your workout streaks, calories burned and feel awesome about not only the progress you’re making but the time you’re dedicating to self-care.
Aaptiv is ideal for a wide range of people like frequent travelers , new parents looking to ease back into a fitness routine, those who prefer exercising at home or outside or even who need new motivation at their gym, race training like a marathon or 5K (there are even programs to train for running a mile), and, overall, anyone looking to develop a workout schedule on their own terms.
Because Aaptiv is an audio fitness app, it can occasionally be tough to follow along when participating in strength training or yoga workouts, for example. However, the app does include helpful guides you can reference for a visual understanding of the moves trainers are encouraging you to do, and the trainers are highly skilled at an audio-delivery of workout instructions and encouragement. For most people, you’ll find that not having to watch your phone for the entire workout adds to the enjoyment.
