Last year, the 24-year-old Aussie trainer’s ‘Sweat With Kayla’ app, offering a 12-week program with weekly coaching, workout tutorials and recipes, shot to the top of the Apple charts. But in recent months, a number of its users have claimed they’ve received unexpected charges after downloading it.
The ‘Sweat With Kayla’ program costs $55.42, comprising weekly payments of $4.61 (or $19.99 a month). However, there’s also an option for users to download the app for a free seven-day trial period, though they’re still required to enter their credit card details.
In comments posted on social media and the app’s iTunes Store page, Itsines’ fans have claimed the app continues to charge the $19.99 monthly charge unless they cancel at the end of the free trial.
“Beware! One week free also automatically sets your Apple ID to subscribe and debit without your approval… Misleading to say the least not worth $20,” one user commented.
