Customer Reviews

  • Love it!

    by Connies Pod

    Great app for anyone wanting to track their progress! Awesome!

  • Motivation

    by DeepBrown28

    Trying to start my path of a healthy lifestyle and this is the perfect motivation I need. Everything all in one simple app. I can log my food and everything is tracked for me, workouts are laid out in an easy to understand manner and even a meal plan is offered. Worth the money.

  • Love it

    by Kimberly Walters

    Love having the ability to log my food intake easily and have a myriad of exercises at my fingertips. I've also had a blast listening to Jillian's podcasts! So funny! There are some bugs, but I assume it's an iOS error. I just back out and enter back into the app. Stick with it!

  • Jillian Michaels Slim down

    by Tink toy

    I liked her on the show and I like her on the iPhone app.

  • Great all around app!

    by AllyShel

    This is a great option for logging food and exercise. I've had a few issues with the app freezing or not syncing to things entered online. Overall the app is very user friendly and has great options for meal and workout plans.

  • RN

    by Kaplert

    This app is great! The menu planning, the food journals, the exercise log, all easy to use, all customized to my needs and it's affordable! The exercise demos are very well done demonstrating proper form in an easy to use, at home format! I love this, and I bet you will too!!

  • Saved my life and sanity

    by Jennitailia

    I am thoroughly satisfied with this app, mostly because it's the first thing (and Jillian the first person I will believe above all else) to challenge years of destructive eating disorder behaviors and overexercise. Everything in the app from the journal to the recipes(Jillian's chocolate cookies....!!!!) to the personalized settings is wonderfully exquisite, syncs between devices without errors, and is truly helping shape a healthy foundation for me to build my recovery on.

  • Good app!

    by speakame22

    The only complaint I have about the app version as opposed to the website is that there is no quicklog functionality. Also, some of the calorie values for foods are different on the app than they are on the website. Otherwise, a very handy tool to keep track of your progress and plan your meals and workouts for the week.

  • Freezing

    by amberbunny

    After I watch a video on how to do a move, I have to restart the app because I can't click on the next move or it only shows half the circuits after a video.

  • JM app

    by Kyame1971

    This a useful tool in tracking exercise and meals. I like how the plan is designed for your body type if you complete the quizzes. I would like to see the meal choices improved. It does give the option to change the meal but I usually don't like the options given.

  • Making a change

    by New way of life

    I really like the app, it has helped me log my exercise, meals and snacks to keep track. I believe this is helping me stay on track. I have Jillian's master your metabolism cookbook and use several of the recipes from that and her ripped in 30 days meal plan. None if her recipes are on the app; I would think they would be. It is not so difficult to enter the food and it does stay on the app once entered. It would be nice to build a recipe and servings to enter instead of selecting all the individual items. I would like to get all of Jillian's recipes but do not know if they will stay available on the app.

  • Motivated!

    by Ivette42

    First time doing circuit training and workouts, and even having to deal with shortness of breath due to asthma, it is going good. Good variety of foods!

  • Awesome!

    by Maeburton

    Loving it! Super easy to use and understand. Circuit training is broken down in a easy to use way and then journal is one of the best I have ever used! Lost 13lbs in 3 weeks... Love it !

  • Easy!

    by Joey83245678

    Comprehensive food and exercise program. I love when Jillian "talks" to me to tell me I need to work harder/am doing a good job pushing myself - it is so encouraging! It's great that you're paying for exercise, recipes, daily and weekly plan for both, and color coded visuals for how you're doing each day. So easy to follow. Only issue is my app and sign in on the website don't sync.

  • Great App, a few cons

    by Kira23kira

    This app is wonderful, I am so excited to have videos that show me how to do the exercises properly. Great information featured throughout the app. However, there are two many in app purchases to make for it to be what you really want to get out of it. The initial price should be higher to offset some of that stuff, already building in some of that with the option to purchase other items. Otherwise the app comes with an option to subscribe to the app for 7 days @ $3.99 a day. It's unclear if the extra add on's I purchased will stay available after I subscribe.

  • Love this app

    by Zunzunfree

    Effective exercises, healthy recipes, useful advices. This app works in iPhone, iPad, computer with Windows or Mac, if you wanna lose weight this app is for you, thanks Jillian's.

  • Fab app!

    by ShannonCGG

    Love this app! Love jillian and love her program! So easy anyone can use it!!!

  • Great!

    by Racer222OOO

    A very challenging workout that I can do anywhere. App occasionally quits but I can get back into it. Would be nice to have a timer so I don't have to switch to my phone timer. Otherwise very good workout!

  • Great calorie counter

    by Bengebretson

    I love this app. I use on my iPhone everyday for the last 4 weeks. With diet alone, I've lost 10 lbs! I just wish it had more accurate information on foods with a bigger selection. I have to hand enter everything! Wish it had a recipe builder for cooking to then create servings with accurate nutritional information. There may be more on website but I only use phone app.

  • Won't stay open!

    by Joey83245678

    If it ever stays open it'll change my review to 5 stars! So frustrating!

  • Fix the bugs!

    by Momof3wildchilds

    App will not stay open. I was able to sign and and now the app won't stay open. Please fix!

  • It can be better

    by Msolo83

    It closes on me , there's still bugs that need to be fixed on this app

  • Waste

    by brandon frampton

    Does not work. App will not open.

  • A mess

    by Ughisthis

    Keeps crashing EVERYTIME I open it. I'm canceling my membership.

  • It won't work

    by Millicent Starks

    The app closes about 2 seconds after every attempt to open and use when signed into my account with JillianMichaels.com. After deleting and downloading the app again I took the quiz without signing in but once I signed in the app immediately closes. I also cannot access my online account at JillianMichaels.com. very disappointed.

  • Won't stay open!!!

    by DutcheszRoyale

    I am having the same issue. The app crashes as soon as I open it. I signed up for the $4 weekly plan also, but looks like I'll be canceling.

  • It crashes!!!

    by Hma18

    I just paid for it and now it won't stay open and so I went to the web site and it gives me an error page. This smells like fraud. I want my money back and I want it back now!!!!

  • Kicks off too much

    by Looptyloo

    Right after I get signed on, it kicks me off every time I open the app on my iPad or iPhone. Why?

  • Awesome App!

    by HMHasenauer

    Not sure why some people's IPads and IPhone 5s' don't wanna run the App, but I have an IPhone 5c and this app works great! Love my workouts and absolutely love my meals options-delicious!!!!!! Great work Jillian!!!!

  • Love the app.

    by Ashgaryjoe

    I love this very helpfull. I love the menus to. The exercises I wish it had more easier moves for bigger people. But I am already slimming down so the exercises are getting easier.

  • Great app

    by complete disney fan:)

    I purchased the Jillian Michaels program and the app works great. At first, I couldn't pull up the meals but when I contacted jillianmichaels.com, they fixed it quickly. I love seeing the meals and ingredients and directions right on the phone. Would have given it a 5-star but I cannot access my coach on the app.

  • Great app if you do Jillians workout

    by Jbgdszvkyr

    Wish had more food options

  • Love this App! ❤

    by Lessica7

    Great app, has helped me reach my fitness goal with the various circuit training workout plans!!

  • Continuously crashes

    by jonaslover8990

    It continuously crashes. I can't look at anything before it crashes.

  • Could be better

    by Mia-Sehana

    It crashes when I open it sometimes and the Fitness Plan is always empty when it does open! On top of that, I can't log the exercises that are there! Please fix this app!

  • Jillian Michaels

    by Tsprad33

    Great app I am loving the meal suggestions

  • Love it!

    by Sstar19988

    The workouts are great. Easy to follow plan.

  • Amazing instructional exercise videos!

    by BabyToothDoc

    I found this app very user friendly. I love the customized workouts. As a busy professional it is great to have access to workouts that I can fit into my own schedule. The videos of each exercise are awesome as well - far better than a picture in a magazine or workout book. Jillian shows the correct technique so you won't get injured by having incorrect form. The recipes rock as well!! I love my Jillian app.

  • Best app for weight loss

    by Kemponurse

    I have used this app successfully for 1 year. Lost my weight kept it off. Very motivating. No need to buy anything else. Super responsive and helpful customer service.

  • Great circuit training at the gym

    by Skate635

    Went with a few in app purchases to get extra exercises for gym. After I upgraded to subscription the personal daily circuit was fantastic. Do wish the app had a countdown timer though, besides that I love it.

  • Easy to use and great design

    by Jamie Bothwell

    The app is no only full of great advice, but is also super easy to use and intuitively designed with helpful pictures, videos and easy to follow instructions.

  • Very helpful

    by Fallen Runner

    I like that I can set my goals and then purchase the specific modules I need, withut having to buy them all

  • Great app...easy to use!!

    by Litespeed00

    Great app with an easy-to-use interface. It has tons of instructional videos, fitness plans and meal plans that are the high quality you would expect from Jillian! Go try it for a week and I bet you'll stick with it. Just what I've been looking for!

  • No more excuses

    by Crpsl

    I travel a lot and my phone goes everywhere with me. Now so does my personal trainer! No more excuses for me in 2014! I haven't had the crash issue so can't comment on that...

  • Fantastic workouts!

    by DL98122

    Following Jillian's circuit at the gym gave me an awesome workout; the app is making it super easy to stay motivated!

  • Very organized and easy to use

    by Zach Moose

    The new update looks great. This app makes it so easy for me to keep track of my workouts

  • Doesn't work

    by vmallen

    Thought I would try this app again. I really want to use it and like it but it still will not stay open !

  • Crashes: Does not stay open

    by 123itslisamarie

    This app will not stay open. I have uninstalled and reinstalled to no avail. I have a iPhone 5s with up to date software and this is the only app that will not work. What's also weird is that I can't even log on to her website on Safari. It gives an error message that the page cannot be opened due to having to be rerouted too many times. I signed up for the $4 a week service and I can't even get access to my plan via the app or the browser. I will be closing my account with Jillian. I would like my money back for this app please. That's .99 that can go to a burrito. Jillian Michaels, YOUR APP IS THE BIGGEST LOSER.

  • Crash!!

    by Magazine?

    I'm disappointed and Jillian prob has no idea but my iPad app crashes every time I open it after I signed on!!! What is the deal!?

  • No

    by Countrygirrrrllllll

    Way too many in app purchases. You can barely do anything without buying something

  • Doesn't work

    by 1235turgy7768

    Every time I open the app, it closes. I have even tried to access my account online through Jillian's website with no luck. I am an avid listener of her podcast and was really looking forward to her plans. Guess I'll have to cancel my account with Jillian Michael's and head back to Weight Watchers. Never had an issue with WW. Needless to say, I'm very disappointed as I believe JM's program better suits my goals than WW. Don't waste your money...

  • Please fix this app!!

    by Boilermarcher

    Crashes every time it opens up (ever since I created an account and tried to sing in), deleting/reinstalling useless. Please fix this bug!!

  • Disappointed BIG Time

    by Miler2013

    Everything needs to be purchased once inside the app! So disappointing

  • kg

    by crasherrefkljskf

    this app is horrible. it never opens correctly. And then when you try and unsubscribe its almost impossible to find the link to do so. Do yourself a favor and get an app that works correctly and is more user friendly than this one.

  • Unable to use

    by TXbug

    Closes / crashes immediately. Basically useless. I have tried deleting reinstalling and powering down both devices. Nothing works.

  • Love it

    by 3tkids

    I love this app. It helps that she shows how to do the exercise. Also, logging my exercise and foods is something I've never been able to figure out (calorie wise), and this does all the work for me.

  • Must-have

    by Renata_a

    First app you should download to be fit!

  • Eh

    by Trluc

    Can't get it to synch with online account. Unloaded and reloaded couple if times & still won't work. Disappointed because I like using it when it works.

  • Disappointed

    by Khaoslegend

    I'm really upset because I just signed up for her online program and I can't access it through the app or online! :(

  • App won't work

    by 2yellowpups

    I am a member and have never even been able to use this app. Every time I open it, it immediately closes. I have deleted and reinstalled the app several times and nothing seems to work. I am very disappointed and it really hinders my ability to use the program.

  • Great app

    by Bipolar user

    This is an easy way to learn to lift weights at home. I subscribe and each day get a different set of circuit training to accomplish. Feels good when I can add it to my journal.

  • Crash

    by Jen1993

    Every time I open this app it crashes, if I uninstall it and reinstall it it works untill I sign in again. Don't waist your time. If I could give it no stars I would.

  • Useless

    by parliu

    Everything needs in-app purchases. It is basically unusable without paying ridiculous prices for a "personally adapted" workout.

  • Jillian Slim Down

    by Big C Warrior

    I am a 60 year old female that battled cancer 3X. I run at a 12 minute mile pace and just completed my first race after cancer - 13,1/half marathon. My heart and lungs are strong but my muscles are not. I had to start with the newbie level. The workout was great. Recipes gave me some new ideas. I will be strong again. Thanks Jillian

  • Amazing!

    by Hayderaid

    This program helped me to loose 15 pounds within 2.5 months. I felt super fit, enough to try and run again after a 10 year hiatus. I ran 3 miles the first time. I stopped using the program and only ran and after 5 months time(2 months of which I was out with a back injury) I ran my first race a 10k! I attribute this success to Jillian's program. After this stint away from her program I'm back again, I expect to see the previous results again, I've got to loose an additional 15 pounds, and train for a 15k in January and a 20k in March. Oh and by the way I'm 48. No excuses people!

  • Sad

    by It's a Crasher

    So far they know how to take the money but they don't know how to deliver the goods. Won't let me pass the login. Keeps crashing. And once it finally lets me get in it is inconsistent. The cost is a tad stiff too. I would had like the videos to walk me thru the exercises telling me what's next vs me having to stop to look at what's next. It stops my heart rate every time . Loved her books surprisingly disappointed with app.

  • Great App

    by Deb3671

    Seems great to meI

  • Good app with flaws

    by KeepingItReal530

    It does have flaws that it does not scan food bar codes and recognize the foods on any of the bar codes of foods at all. And it does not recognize anything by name even well known names of all the health foods and other types of foods. Manually have to and not always calories available to manually enter. Considering pay every week fee should work to recognize and read any barcodes and not force close as it has been.

  • LOVE it!

    by tombflowers

    I love this app, I haven't had crash issues and find the walk/run function to be amazing. My only complaint is when you're searching for food. If the company has multiple options then it's hard to find the right one since it give you a few words then ....'s. If this gets fixed it would be amazing.

  • Please fix app ASAP

    by Ruthhbroussard

    I can't access the workout feature of this app and that is very disappointing see how I paid 3.99 for NOTHING!!!!! Please fix asap

  • by BQFanatic

    BEST APP EVER!!! if you are trying to get fit, lose weight or are a fit pro... Get this app!!!! You'll love it!!!

  • New update

    by SpcWeihe

    The new update messed it up for me. I don't wanna spend time trying to get it resolved with the help desk! I haven't been able to log my Food or Exercises because it says it is syncing. Well after an hour of syncing it was still syncing! Fix this please because I don't want to have to cancel my membership! It has been a huge help to me!

  • Synching issues

    by Mlw2012

    Once the update hit I no longer can get into my journal. Very frustrating. Have deleted and downloaded several times with no luck

  • Stuck syncing

    by Lizluvslarry

    It was great until the update. I can't get into the journal anymore. It's stuck syncing :( disappointed

  • Cancel

    by Carbo00

    How do you cancel this app. There is no place in settings to cancel the membership. Do not purchase this app. No way to cancel.

  • Save your $$

    by Mad runner

    GPS WRONG- Time WRONG- Steps WRONG! Save your 6 bucks! I want mine back!! I love Jillian Michaels, but this was a total let down!!

  • New update poor :(

    by NextDoorNeighborFlavor

    Looks like a cool upgrade until you search for a food with multiple options such as Healthy Choice.. Clicking on any of them has no indication of which soup it is at the top of the page. There's just no excuse for this type of stupidity in programming.

  • Not a fan

    by RandiChris

    The run tracker par to the app isn't helpful if you want to listen to your music while running...you do not get any feed back on distance, pace or any motivational messages like you do with almost all the other running apps I have used- I will go back to my other apps until this is fixed!!! Not happy that I paid a lot more for this app and I did not get what I thought I would out of it!!!

  • Wow!

    by Baps1981

    Love the app! Looks fantastic with iOS 7. The run tracker really motivates me everyday. Thank you Jillian!

  • Crashes

    by IAmSplash

    I just signed up but the app won't stay open more than a second. Bummer!

    by vanillamusk

    This app is Fabulous, so easy to use with all you need to stay on track!!

  • Almost Perfect

    by Notmenotnow

    Hi, I'm returning back to finish and continue what I attempted to start. I had a knee injury and I'm slowly coming back. I have a couple of question that I hope I can have answers to so that I can be more successful and willing to see this program through and adopt it to my daily routine... In my fitness planner I would like to be able to change exercises according to my needs, for instance I have an exercise that requires a machine that I don't have at home. I do all my exercises at home or because of my knee injury I can't do jumping jacks just yet. Also, in my journal I would like to add the exercises that I did in my planner so that I can have a true measure of what calories I burned... I believe for a product that I am paying for it should be a little more friendly user, otherwise it would be perfect...
