The Shreddy App - My Honest Review
What is Shreddy?
What I thought of Shreddy InitiallyAt first, I wasn't so sure about Shreddy. And a lot of other girls I spoke to thought the exact same. The app had a lot of errors such as the app quitting every time I came off of it, not being able to time my workouts, no access to the community page, and my music turning off every time I viewed a workout video. It was frustrating, but I understood that this was happening because it was a new app. No apps are perfect, which is why updates exist.
What I think of Shreddy nowIt took Grace and her team about 2 weeks to sort out these errors, but they seem to all be fixed now and I'm really happy with the results. Initially, I was restricted with a lot of the features on the app but now I can time how long it takes me to do the workouts, the app doesn't quit anymore, I have access to the community page, and clicking on workout videos doesn't turn my music off.
The WorkoutsI feel lucky as someone who has been training for almost 2 years. As 98% of the exercises included in the fitness programme, I already recognised. However, a lot of the girls doing Shreddy had never worked out in their life and downloaded the app for some guidance. Many complained that there weren't alternative exercises for any of the harder moves like push-ups and pull-ups, and they had to sit in the gym googling it which took up time they didn't have. As far as I know, this is being fixed. But is definitely something that should've been a feature in the first place.
About 6 months ago, I tried out Krissy Cela's fitness app, Tone and Sculpt, and not only did it have alternative exercises, but it also had alternative ingredients for recipes in the meal plan. This is something Shreddy should be doing.
The Meal PlanPersonally, I don't follow the meal plan as I like to meal prep for 4 days of the week. However, every meal prep I have done for the past 4 weeks has been inspired by the Shreddy recipes. A few of my favourite recipes include:
- Scrambled Tofu and Mushrooms on Toast
- Hummus 'n' Pitta
- Falafel Wrap
- Fried Tofu Pasta
- Garlicky Tomato Beans and Rice
A few recipes I haven't tried yet but would love to:
- Breakfast Burrito
- Berry Banana Pancakes
- Jacket Potato with Cheezy Beans
- Seitan Pitta Plate
- Tempeh Pittas
- Smoky Double Cheeseburger
In conclusion, I really like Shreddy and I think it definitely lives up to my expectations. I'm not sure if I'm going to keep the app after 12 weeks because I get bored easily. But what I do know is that I won't be cancelling my subscription early.
