    "Every few updates all my downloaded videos stop working and I lose all my unlocked courses. If you are like me and have to watch your download data because it is not unlimited, then it becomes a big problem. Having a subscription based app, I would expect this not to keep happening, but it did again after the last update. The app wanted me to sign in on WiFi before I could see the courses. I downloaded the app again after I contacted support and it is still happening. I have now moved to Treadmill Trails where I will own the videos. I will miss two of the courses here but I still have some of the older videos I had bought on Virtual Active before they made this subscription based."

    "Couch to 5K is a great app that allows you to track your running or walking no matter how short or how far you want to go and how often! It also gives you a trainer or a "coach" that pushes you along the way, which I found very helpful when I felt like I was ready to give up. Overall, it is a very simple app that is easy to use, helpful for goal setting, and also motivational."

    "I have used Motion X app for years on my treadmill, because it's that good. I have tried other apps from time to time, but the stationary aspect of the treadmill made them all highly inaccurate. "
