Plans, trials and subscription options
There are a number of pricing options available when it comes to Openfit subscriptions. There is a 14 day free trial, which provides unlimited access to the 350+ live and on demand classes, as well as custom nutrition plans. This can be cancelled at any time before the trial period expires. After this point, users are billed at the rate of $8 per month, which is billed every 12 months at $96.
Alternatively, there is an option to pay $10 per month at a rate of $60 every 6 months. Finally, users can pay the rate of $13 a month, billed at $39 every 3 months. Subscriptions are automatically renewed for the price and term selected until a user cancels.
Two main competitors are Aaptiv and Beachbody. Aaptiv stands out for its musical inspiration and constantly updated workouts selection. Meanwhile, Beachbody looks quite similar to Openfit and offers a longer free trial session. However, Openfit offers more flexible pricing options, and the all-in-one approach with nutrition plans, a fitness community and turning on live cameras during workouts for form checking means that this platform arguably offers more value for money.
Is Openfit worth it?
Openfit offers a good all-round program for those looking to give their lifestyles an overhaul. Whether it’s following a tailored eating plan, having unlimited access to live and on-demand classes or benefiting from the motivation an engaged fitness community can provide, this platform covers all the bases. While some have complained about money being taken from their accounts, we think the prompt customer service should ensure any issues are quickly dealt with. Overall, we think this service is worth checking out.
