Introducing New and Improved Programs In-App Now!

Hop in the app to check them out!

We’re excited to announce that Aaptiv’s workout programs have gotten a makeover! We’ve heard from many of you that our programs help keep you committed to your goals but you want them to be updated regularly, and that you’d like to see programs that feature multiple trainers. Starting today, you will find 12 refreshed programs in the Aaptiv app. All come complete with a downloadable PDF that includes a calendar so you can plan your week of workouts.

Below, you can find detailed descriptions of each new program. If you’re currently active in an existing program, you will have until April 30th to finish or transition to one of our new-and-improved programs. On April 30th, the outdated programs will be removed from the app. To transition we recommend:

Please note: Due to the length of the half marathon and marathon programs, the updates are quite extensive and therefore we cannot give exact timing on when the new and improved programs will be live. We realize the implications that this can have on your training schedule, and weighed all of the options before coming to this decision. Ultimately, we decided that we need to remain committed to delivering only the best experience. If you are unable to finish your training by April 30, we recommend using this training guide. You can still use it after the program has been taken down and it provides a week-by-week breakdown of the types of workouts/rest days you should be doing leading up to both a half marathon and full marathon race day.

Please let us know if you have any questions or how we can best support you during this transition by reaching out to support@aaptiv.com.
