Has anyone used this service? I am just wondering how it worked and did you get a lot of use out of it? It seems pretty cool, but I just wanted to hear from anyone who has used it.

Thanks for posting this -- I hadn't heard of it and it's definitely my cup of tea!

OP here - just hoping that someone out there has used it and interested to hear their opinion! :)

I think it sounds interesting, but not sure if it is worth the $20 a month...

I tried it, and wasn't particularly impressed. You can't use music you've purchased through iTunes (I'm sure there's a workaround for that, but I didn't have the patience to figure it out). Some of the workouts weren't put together very well. For example, I had one that told me to walk 5 minutes at 4.0 mph and 0% incline, and then five minutes later, told me the same thing - so I did two intervals of the same thing back to back. Also, they put intervals of 6.0 mph into a "beginner/intermediate" walking workout. At 6.0 mph, I'm running! They also didn't cancel my membership when I asked, and so they charged me for a full month even though I tried to cancel within the free trial period. I disputed the charge and they refunded it, but still.

Love it! It's so motivating, changes every day and you never get bored. I use for walking, weight lifting at home and at gym, tread mill, body shaping exercise ec.t you can customize so much it really is like having your own personal trainer. They do have a few kinks but I hope they can work them out soon.....
As for the itunes thing... yea you cannot use your itunes direct but you can upload any music from CD to i tunes or download to cd and re upload the same to itunes to listen to all the music you want. Nothing like working super hard and have your own greatest music ever playing in your ears along with the count of a trainer!
