8 Fit Review

8 Fit Review: My Disappointment

Considering trying the 8 Fit Program or 8 Fit App? Read this review before you spend your money!

meHi there! My name is Barbara. I’m a single mother of two who recently decided to start the 8 Fit app.

My journey to this point was not a fun one. I caught my then-husband in the act of cheating on me with a younger model one night about a year ago.

It was devastating. After that, we had a very messy break-up that left me really depressed. I turned to binge-eating and bad habits to try and cope.

Lo and behold, I started packing on weight. And I couldn’t stop, I didn’t WANT to stop. It felt good to give into my indulgence.

Eventually I realized that if I didn’t stop this reactionary habit, I was going to end up just hurting myself more and more in the long run. I didn’t want to go down that path, and I didn’t want to let that man have that much power of my life.

So, I took to Google! I tried to look up well liked workout guides and meal plans to figure out one I could stick with, one that could help me get my body back to where it used to be. I wanted to be able to wear a bikini without being self-conscious. I wanted to be healthy again. This is what lead me to the 8Fit Workout.

UPDATE: I found a much better alternative, and included my results since swapping to the new program. If you’re interested, keep reading. It’s included at the bottom of this post.

My 8 Fit App Review

I came across 8 Fit while searching on Instagram and Reddit. The program seemed to immediately have popularity, and some of the transformations looked really good too! Unfortunately, I started getting really excited by this, and then I made a very novice mistake.

I went ahead and bought the program.

Looking back, not doing my own research was the biggest error I made in this. I got too excited thinking I had found the perfect workout. Normally I’m much more conservative about choices like this, especially when money gets involved (just wait until I get into the cost of 8Fit…) but I really wanted to get back in shape!

The 8 Fit program works on a monthly subscription. You can either pay a monthly price, but you pay for a year upfront, or you can pay a 3-month price, and pay for 3 months upfront.

The 1 year plan costs $59.95 USD, and the 3-month plan costs $29.99 USD! What! I know to some of you this may not sound expensive, but I live week-to-week on a budget. I would rather have paid $29.99 for a full workout plan up front, rather than paying for a monthly subscription.

That said, I also couldn’t afford to stay unhealthy, so I went ahead adn took the plunge.

Overall the 8 Fit program was… really not that great. I had really gotten my hopes, and was expecting the be all end all of workout programs when I got it. But ultimately it was just a really simple guide, with a lot of information that could be found on Google.

It’s also filled with quite a bit of fluff just to pad the text and make you feel like you’re getting more than what you really are, which was disappointing.

Yeah…I wanted more.

My Incomplete 8 Fit App Results

 I tried to stick it out – I really did! But after a week I had it with the 8 Fit program. I quit. No offense to the creators, but I just found it really boring and definitely overpriced, not at all something I would want to pay a subscription for.

To me, a workout guide should be something a little more informative and personal. This just felt bare-bones. Maybe other women will be fine with this but I wanted something more geared for beginners!

I was frustrated with this experience, but I still wanted to try and lose weight. So I decided to go back on Google again, and figure out what other women were saying about the 8 Fit app.

To my surprise, there were a few other people who had similar experiences and left negative reviews of 8 Fit. I was a little upset that I hadn’t taken the time to do the research before I bought it, but I couldn’t blame the creators on that. That was all me!

If only I had looked up other opinions before I bought it…

Luckily, after I vented about my own experience, one of the women who had bought 8 Fit and not seen great results recommended another program to me. That ended up being the program I would later swap to and use to GREAT result.

The 8 Fit Alternative that is CHEAPER and BETTER…

I was upside with my experience with 8Fit, so I made a pact to try out this new program unless it was:

1. Affordable.

2. A one-time purchase.

3. Given good reviews! This time I was going to do my research!!

But to my surprise, I found all 3 of these in the program that was recommended to me – The Bikini Body Workouts by Jen Ferruggia.

Jen Ferruggia is a fitness model who has experience as a personal trainer, which I think explains why so many women have seen great results and had good transformations with her program. This accounted for the positive reviews I noticed.

But then I looked into the actual content (not going to seduced once more). Jen’s program came with the manual, instructional workout videos, a completely FREE nutrition and diet guide, even shopping lists — all for a ONE-TIME purchase of $29.99! The 8 Fit program offered LESS for a SUBSCRIPTION PRICE of $29.99!

The comparison was a no-brainer.

UPDATE: Thanks to one of my readers, I found out you can get the program for even cheaper at http://www.workingdiscountcodes.com/bikini-body-workouts-coupon/!

I’ve been on Jen’s program for 2 weeks now and I’m loving it. The workout guide is really easy to follow and the instructional videos give it that personal touch I was missing from 8Fit. Plus, even the meal plan is great, with lots of healthy and nutritious food that also manages to be delicious.

In a way I’m really grateful for 8Fit, because if I hadn’t had that negative experience I might have never stumbled upon Jen’s workout.

I’m anticipating that it’s going to be the workout that I stick with for a while, and I’m already seeing changes in my body. Here’s to hoping!


Hi there. Did you miss me? 🙂 I’m back and looking better than ever! Check out my transformation!

The results speak for themselves, or at least they would if I could stop raving. I LOVE Jen Ferruggia’s workout guide! I wake up in the morning full of energy now, my mental health has improved, I’m even a more positive person overall.

I’ve even noticed some of my cellulite firming up 🙂

The Bikini Body Workouts is a guide that I was able to follow to the letter, which was exactly what I needed in my life. Combined with the information Jen taught me, it made exercising really easy. It became a matter of discipline, rather than motivation.

It she made it a breeze, motivating me from the videos and the eBook itself. I think I mentioned it a few months ago, but I especially love the bikini body nutrition guide, which I’m using to make healthy foods that are truly delicious.

There’s nothing else I can really say that would be new. This was the program for me. Maybe 8 Fit will be the program that works best for the rest of you. The main thing I learned to do was experiment and do your research! I wish you luck, regardless of the program you end up following!

  1. Hey Barbara!!! That story was awful, but I’m glad to see you’ve found some success with the Jen Ferruggia workouts. I’m looking into getting themselves and found this website where you can save some $$$ with a coupon code 🙂 http://www.workingdiscountcodes.com/bikini-body-workouts-coupon/ I figured you might like it!

    Looking to drop 12 lbs in 2 months, hoping it’s possible.

    • Hi Jenny,
      Thanks for sharing this coupon, I’ll edit it into the main post! I definitely think your goal is possible, and if anyone can get you there, it’s Jen’s workouts.
      Good luck, come back and update us in a few weeks, would ya?
      Barbara xoxo

  2. Hey Barbara,

    Do you think it’s still worth getting Jen’s program if I mainly want something I can use on my phone, like an app? I do agree 8 Fit is a bit expensive though…

    • Hi Clarissa,
      I absolutely do think it’s worth getting Jen’s Bikini Body Workout over a fitness app. It comes in a PDF form so you can pull it up on your phone, plus the information helps you craft your own workout. I use the notes app on my iPhone to keep track of my progress.
      Hope that helps! And agree, 8Fit is too expensive!
      Barbara xoxo

  3. I was just about to buy 8 Fit but to expensive for me! I forget monthly subscriptions all the time… that would be 4 years of payments before I managed to cancel lol. Thanks for the info Tara, I’ll try Jen’s program!

    • Hi Jasmine,
      Glad I helped you save money! Hoping that you see good results with this, let us know how it goes for you!
      Barbara xoxo

  4. 8 Fit is absolutely NOT worth it in my opinion. Didn’t like it; wasted my money, guide was way too simple. Better off finding something else… lesson learned the hard way.

    Maybe I’ll try Bikini Body workouts.

    • Agreed Raven.
      When you’re ready to try something else, I think Jen might be the affordable weight loss solution you want. It’s simple and easy, but the information is GOOD.
      Barbara xoxo

  5. Congratulations Barbara on your transformation!
    I love all the before and after pics on Bikini Body Workouts and seeing your results is very inspiring. Lets do this!

    • Hi Alejandra,
      Thanks for your support! Let’s get in shape together! Maybe share some of your progress pictures?
      Barbara xoxo
