excellent for exercise

I prefer Virtual Active to its sister app BitGym because you can pick where to start. The app is great, but I wish they added more destinations, and included more urban walking tracks. I noticed that in the past year they have not added any new videos at all to the app and are selling videos to be downloaded only. Still it is a 5-star app, it converts an otherwise tedious workout to fun experience.


Life saver.

We are missionaries in Ethiopia. Running outside is not peaceful or a stress reliever. This app is amazing because I no longer have to stare at my white wall while using my elliptical, I can feel like I am in a world that feels a lot more like 'home' or my home culture. Because of the visual I can go longer without feeling bored and then quitting- wishing I could just run trails like I used to. Thank you for this app! It works seamlessly.


Glad they have added more videos

Happy to see more videos have been added to the ones I previously bought before I tried BitGym, which does not work for me anymore. Sad to see that one of my favorite courses the Sea to Sky isn’t on here, but my most used course Trinity Mountains is! I never had a problem losing my downloads in this app so am happy to purchase the videos to keep.
