Kiqplan Review and Giveaway

I first heard of Kiqplan when a friend told me she was using their fitness app to train for Race for Life (Kiqplan is RfL’s official training partner).  Kiqplans are 12 week training packs and there are 8 Kiqplans to choose from, I am reviewing Slim and Trim, which aims to help women of all sizes with weight loss and toning, I am very happy to report that six weeks in I have lost 6lbs (my goal is to lose 10lb) but more importantly, I’m thinking differently about me!

The Kiqplan syncs to your activity tracker to help you track diet, exercise and weight loss – syncing to Fitbug products, Fitbit products, Nike+, Apple trackers, Jawbone and more.  I am reviewing Kiqplan with a Fitbug Orb, which I received to help me write this review.  A nifty little watch type device that I have become rather attached to!

Priced at £19.99 the app kick started me into a 12 week plan to help me become fitter, healthier and more aware of my personal goals. The virtual coaching model helps encourage and keep me on track.

Before I started I hadn’t used a fitness tracker product, I was fearful that I would hit nowhere near 10,000 steps a day but was pleasantly surprised by the activity levels I achieve in my daily car-free life, this was before my evening walk on a work day, so hitting 11,000ish was a pleasant surprise and told me that I’m not as sedentary as I thought!  Oh and don’t be alarmed, I do sleep more than zero hours, I just didn’t log it this day!

Tracking my activity levels was great, but the really appealing thing for me is the food and nutrition aspect of Kiqplan, pre-loaded with lots of my usual Aldi products it was so easy to track my food intake, a pleasant surprise as I have struggled with this on popular lifestyle plans. Logging my daily water intake was useful, I’ve not done this before, but had my eight glasses once I got used to checking in throughout the day.

The guided exercise videos made exercising at home easy, no excuses when you can log in and dive straight into a session, and they were so easy to follow that they quickly formed part of my evening routine!

I’m totally converted to tracking now, and would definately explore the other plans on offer when I finish up with Slim and Trim, I’m happy with the results and enjoying being a bit more mindful about how I eat, rest and move!

If you’d like to try the Slim and Trim programme I have a 12 week subscription to give away, just follow the Rafflecopter instructions to be in with a chance of winning!  The winner will get a Kiqplan pack worth £19.99 (you will need your own fitness tracking device as listed here, the prize is the code to access the app) – Terms and Conditions Apply

  1. I use a fitbit, would be interesting to see what features this app offers above what fitbit already do. Exercise videos sound like a great idea!

  2. I don’t currently use a tracking device but would love to try one! I have used myfitnesspal in the past but always forget to login.

  3. just apps on my phone, would love to have a fitness band of some sort as I dont always have my phone on me.

  4. I have a Nike Fuelband, which I’ve had over 3 years now. I lost 20lbs in the first year I got it and have maintained my weight since – I love it!

  5. I don’t have a proper tracking device yet but I do have a Garmin 200 for my bike so that I can track my rides and upload them to Strava – does that count ?!

  6. I have just embarked on a healthy living regime, exercising and eating well. This would really help me keep focused and on track.
