Would be better if the music wasn’t so loud

I couldn’t hear the trainer because the music is too loud. I love the idea but I couldn’t hear the trainer

really stupid music choices

I'm only at the second day but if I get more of the discord in today's audio I'll quit.
The problem is that on the second day they switch from instrumental music to vocal music and the second layer of voices competes with the trainer and drowns her out. It's like having two people talking to you at the same time, saying different things, so that you have no idea what either one of them is saying.
In all fairness, the music is pretty bad anyway, but when it is instrumental only and at a lower background level it is easy to listen to the trainer and ignore everything about the music except the beat. But when it is vocal music as loud as the trainer it is just cacauphony. l missed several instructions to change the speed and incline because I couldn't hear the trainer's words.
In addition, when the trainer pauses, the music argues with her. She says, "you can do this," and the singers say, "no, no, no." She says, "you're doing great," and the singers say, "I don't want to." Things like that happen over and over again.
It is a shame that this good idea is being ruined by a simple but stupid editing choice.

Background music is annoying

I downloaded this to help me get moving but as soon as you open it that awful background music starts and drowns out the instructor. It was so loud and annoying that I stopped listening after 20mins.

It'd be great if this could be redone without the music.

Do it!!!

I can't believe I did it!! I could barely make it through the 30 seconds of jogging on the first day, and I was able to run a little over a mile without stopping by the end of it! Jamie is so genuine and encouraging that I really felt like she was right there with me the whole time! thank you!!!

Inspirational!

Jamie did the impossible: She got me to run. Her encouraging words and emphasis on form and breath helped me to push past my mental barriers and achieve my fitness goals!

Fun and Helpful!

I wasn't sure what to expect with this, and admittedly, I didn't go through the whole program. I downloaded the workouts toward the end of the program because I was a little further along. Jaime was motivating, enthusiastic, and even funny at times, and I really appreciated her style throughout the workouts I used. I didn't find the music to be overwhelming at all. The only thing I wish she hadn't done was count off each minute in the final run -- 1 minute isn't a whole lot when you have your first 15-min run facing you!

Loving this!!

I have been doing this workout every morning and love it. It is great for all levels as it gives you opportunities to modify or push yourself. 5 stars all around.
