  • Outstanding App

    by MusicMan826

    I've only been using this for a few days, but I'm definitely feeling the results big time and know I will see them in time. For someone who has no idea what I'm doing, this is great because it tells me exactly what to do to get the workout that I want. I look forward to using this more and seeing the results!

  • Wont workout

    by Salohcin_13

    It loads and everythin, i can set it up and when i press "get work out" it wont load. I let it sit there for ten mons and still wont load

  • Awesome app

    by Sweat more now

    This app mad my work outs easy

  • Great app

    by Jo3p

    Love the workouts but needs more variety in some of the workouts I use the highest setting now and sometimes do not even feel burned after the workout

  • Phenomenal

    by Nsturm3

    This is easily the best workout/fitness app I have found. I've used everything from the paid version of men's health magazine app to the app and this one tops them both.

  • Best workout app

    by Twist763

    Best workout app I have found yet...actually the only one I really use at the gym

  • Very nice!

    by KennyHQ

    Features rich with lots of customization! Must have if you want to be healthy with exercises! Like the new audio flow!

  • Follow it thru

    by SoCal KCL

    If you follow thru the workout plans you are well on your way. Use the workouts as a guide and stick to it. I've been working out religiously for 15 years and thought I was "advanced." Clearly, I am not and I think this app will guide me there. I workout at a fancy gym w top notch personal trainers and they're no better than Alpha trainer's workouts. They also charge like $80/session which is total bs. Get alpha trainer and let that be your PT and save the $ on new smaller, tighter clothes. You will need them.

  • Perfect for busy moms!

    by Jewelqueen1000

    I'm a mother of three children and don't have time to go to gym whatsoever. I love the setting option which I can select home workout. I've been using it for 2 weeks and already noticing changes in my body. It's very convenient and effective, but what I like most about it is the interactive functionality. I haven't seen anything like this before. Love it!!!

  • Best fitness app ever

    by Danfrphils

    Love the ability to customize a work out to my specific needs. It's also easy to use and has ability to enlist my Facebook friends to keep me motivated. Body looks and feels better after 6 weeks now.

  • Easier to use than I thought

    by Chacha2007

    I was surprised at how easy it is to use this program and immediately get a customized workout. I look forward to using my customized plan. Thanks Alpha Trainer!

  • Dramatic Results

    by Jaberson

    I'd like to start by stating that I am not a paid promoter of the Alpha Trainer app. I never leave reviews but felt compelled to leave one for Alpha Trainer because it has completely changed the way I experience the gym. I love this app and use it every single time I go to the gym. I pop in my headphones and simply follow whatever the directions of the 'Alpha Trainer'. Nothing could be easier. I have been using it for a few months now and the results I've seen are staggering. I'm a 28 year old male - 6 feet tall - 160 pounds. I'm not 'big' or 'buff' and likely never will be. However, I would never imagine that I would be able to build muscles as I have over the last few months using this app. I can't recommend it enough.

  • awesome app!!

    by Jubersdotcom

    awesome app! i like the new update. thank you so much for helping me to achieve my goals!

  • Amazing fitness app!

    by RockedOutTony

    This is the most amazing fitness app that combines the most customized workout programs with social motivation! Well done!

  • Decent app, but pricey

    by Mavrric

    First 4 weeks are good if you can stick with it. But after that, the price to continue is surprisingly higher than expected. Not sure I will pay so much money without knowing in advance that I will truly like what I purchase for that amount. Maybe I am just cheap but at that price, I should be able to simply waive my iPhone around my body and I magically get in shape. As for the app, it would be nice if there were 10-20 seconds to switch exercises during the supersets—it takes time. Shave this off of the Rest periods—they are too long so I forward thru them. Would be better if the videos were fluid for the workout instead of the static images. 5 stars if that happens

  • From Beginners to Pros

    by WillFinn

    I model and act, all that. My husband works a desk job. I have been working out since my teens and am always looking for "consistent variation." This app combines a personal trainer, record keeper and cutting edge research. For my husband, who's new to regimented exercise and I to use the same app and both be motivated, satisfied and SORE is amazing. I can't recommend this app enough. I just wish it wasn't so sensitive to stopping.


    by Keyboo

    It Keeps Crashing!! Please Fix It!!

  • Stopped working on iOS 7

    by moving to starhub

    Used to work well on my ipad mini. After upgrading to iOS 7, the app doesn't work anymore.

  • SCAM!!

    by Calx_831

    I subscribed to the app for $9.99 a month and still wont allow me to see all the workouts!!! I emailed the company and never got a response im calling my bank to remove those charges! Dont download

  • My number one app

    by gafrausto

    -Takes the guesswork out of working out. - Provides a strong base and then builds on it. - Able to change difficulty as you progress through your plan. - After about 10 weeks with this app, I realized that I was probably overdoing it with prior workouts. I'm now working out less times per week and per session, but seeing results and getting a Great workout to boot. Thank you

  • Hh

    by Ufcefhb

    Sorry. Instructing a 60 yr old woman to do 15 clapping push-ups the first day... Can't give it better than 1 star.

  • Feels like a bait and switch!

    by Beccar95

    This is what I send the app creator. Please read before you buy. I'm really disappointed. I just learned that the Elite membership program must be purchased to continue my training. This is such a great app. I wish you would just sell the 14 week program as a stand alone for $5-$9. That's an expensive app but well worth it for your quality. I feel like you did a bait and switch on me. I expected to buy a more pro app but to try to sell me essentially a gym membership is crazy. I pay a gym membership to use your app. I'm officially a detractor and will post this on my FB and Twitter. I'll also leave feedback in the App Store.

  • Amazing

    by Six7zero

    Ive been going to the gym for 4 weeks using my other workout app. Tried this app today and it kicked my butt. Great app.

  • Awesome experience!!

    by DylanCullie

    SCREW THIS APP!! I worked out for an entire month through my tone phase and now I can't go any further until I purchase elite membership ..... You should at least put out a basic workout and make the person upgrade to elite to get a premium workout plan!!! Ruined this app for me

  • Amazing !!

    by Sk8ters tox1k

    I'm barely on my second day and I'm already Sore I've never been this Sore with other workouts this app is without doubt one of the best Workout apps ever !!

  • Great App

    by KBlockjy

    This app is an ultimate tool to achieve the body only with hard work, patience, and trust. This app will not dissapoint you

  • Disappointed

    by Cmelrj

    I like the app but you have to upgrade to see past 4 weeks of training and it just repeats about 4 days of different routines.

  • This is amazing!

    by Jason Brollier

    As a trainer myself I think I have all the answers, but even a trainer needs a trainer once in a while. This app is now my go-to trainer. Easy to use, it seamlessly guides you through every workout. Fantastic app- definitely worth the download. No need for any other training app.

  • Eh

    by Brent113

    Good for beginners but not for someone who wishes to bulk up and go for some real gains.

  • its good

    by alexr13203

    its good but its take forever to load up

  • $100??

    by MrOrangeBaltimore

    How can the elite membership be "lifetime" when I'm only using it for 14 weeks? So the last ten weeks are $100? Good program but that seems steep when all your competitors charge $10 at most.

  • You shouldn't have to pay

    by Bricelyn brakcrnalc

    I was really excited when I got this app. It seemed like it would really get me in shape. I just didn't like it when I found out that you had to pay for the next 10 weeks. Why does it have to be like every other app? We shouldn't have to pay for it.

  • Amazing... Needs a better design.

    by Devon Lamoureux

    This app is extremely amazing. I love the content. The whole point behind it is perfect. I love the custom workouts. But the whole design could be way better. It should be more flat- higher quality graphics- and also have a better user interface.

  • Okay I guess

    by [+fifa69+]

    Good but it tells u to get the full membership in order to get the full experience besides that 5 star app

  • Annoyed....iOS 5 only

    by RenèeV

    Not optimized for 4s or below. 1st time I've ever seen this.

  • Nice app but need more variety

    by Scrappin' Mamma

    I found this app thanks to my husband. Really liked the first 4 weeks so bought a month membership. I was a little disappointed that there wasn't a whole lot of changes with regards to the exercises from the first 4 weeks. I would have liked to see a couple new cardio routines. 12 weeks of the same cardio exercises is going to get old. All-in-all I like the layout and structure and will do the full 14 week program.

  • Awesome Workout App

    by DaveR78

    I was stuck in a rut at the gym not getting any results and doing the same boring exercises. This app really opened my eyes on what I should be doing. The workouts are challenging and I feel like I'm making progress towards my goals. The directions for the exercises are clear and the verbal cues help so you don't always have to look at your phone between sets. I was also impressed with the support team. I used the feedback form in the app to make a suggestion and heard back within hours.

  • This is it

    by Dtjjgdy

    I needed this app and now I'm more motivated than ever to do the workouts

  • WORKS!!!

    by Bengals11six

    This app is great! I'm about to start week 2 and I can already feel the results! When I'm not sore that is. This app really works and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to get in shape!

  • Typical

    by Hhfdsiiutdvjiyfvhiu

    Pretty great workouts...for four weeks. It's a fourteen week program, but you pay starting with the 5th week...your call.

  • Crash report

    by RegalVarian

    The app crashes every time I try to click An exercise or even go to settings. Iphone5, please fix! It says it can't fetch something from an HTML. Love the app but crashes need to be fixed!

  • Such a sick workout!!!

    by TheLingo

    I just got this app thinking it would be the same old same old fitness app, workout do this, do that and whatever. But I threw my stuff in and bam!!! Now I am sweating and working my body out like I never thought!!! I recommend this!!!

  • Money sucker!

    by Green Bay Packers 2

    You have to pay for everything! Workouts, membership, and gold all cost money! It looks pretty cool but costs way to much to use the app. If you got money to blow then go ahead and use it!


    by Dead teigger

    Im on my 7th week and ive lost alot of fat that i couldnt get rid off. This is the best fitness app on the app store and it deserves to be #1 I reccomend this app for anybody who is serious about fitness.

  • Great App

    by Copper50

    I needed to change my routine and found this app to do the trick!!

  • Disappointed

    by theRitchie

    LOVE this app...great workout plans and routines. The only problem is they won't let you advance past week 4 without paying $9.99 a MONTH!? Seriously!? Such a ripoff... And there was ZERO warning that your "fully customized 14 week plan" only allows you access to 4 of those weeks....maddening. Nobody likes being taken advantage of or having their intelligence insulted. Just charge between .99 and $5 like everyone else and you guys would have a hit.

  • No audio anymore

    by Duke driver

    I was liking this app until there was no more audio. Rest of app functions normally but no voice prompts, explanations, etc anymore.
