1 minute to 4 miles


I am not a runner and I have never been one. Even in high school with cross country I was not very good. A few months ago, I decided I wanted to start running again and get into better shape and health. Combined with eating better, drinking plenty of water and this app I am now a “runner”. When I started this program I could barely run for a minute without hating life. I just finished the “running for weight loss, beginners program” and can run 4 miles non stop. This 8 week program builds you up little by little to be able to run a little longer each day. Yes, there are some days you will want to scream at the lady in your ear telling you how long to run for, but in the end you’ll thank her.
I did not purchase the app, only using the free version. Nor did I follow the suggested meals. I did my own research on what was best for me to eat.
I highly recommend this app to anyone who is looking to start running and be able to run longer. I did the running for weight loss because it seemed to fit my needs best. It started slowly and gradually worked its way up. I will also add, that again with a combination of eating healthy, plenty of water and this app, I did loose 20 lbs over the course of the program.

I’ve Always Hated Running


I have never ever in my life been a fan of running or cardio, period. I recently got into spinning and that opened up an appreciation for cardio because I was able to lose a lot of fat. It wasn’t until I saw how expensive memberships for various classes were that I thought “it looks like I’ll just have to get my cardio in on my own”. I found this app and downloaded it and explored through the work outs and such and was pretty impressed. I took it to the gym with me and ran on the track with it and it was awesome! You can customize just about every aspect and I love that you can do indoor vs outdoor work outs with it. I’m now in week 3 of running with this app and I’m considering the “premium membership”. I also like that this app notifies me when to drink water throughout the day because I’m TERRIBLE at drinking water. I’d rather have wine, milk or beer. Since using this app, I’ve lost roughly 9lbs and can’t wait to continue losing more. I’m super happy that I found this app!

Kinda works?


I am half way through week 4 now- few issues with the app- why do I want to sign up for a year long program that is designed for 8 weeks? I just cannot justify $10 a month for music, meal plans and other trainer voices. There are wayyy too many adds. It asks me 10x a day to pay for the app- which again- I don’t see worth it.

Another issue- when you read into the program it says to allow days in between workouts for rest and to prevent injuries- but the program is 3 times a week- so if you start Sunday, (rest 2) Wednesday, (rest 2) Saturday... then you have to start back again Sunday in order to get 3 workouts in again the following week- which isn’t a rest between Saturday and Sunday. If you did as directed, week 2 would only have 2 workouts (Tuesday and Friday), and then week 3 (Monday, Thursday) and then start the cycle back over again week 4. The app does not recognize rest days as intended.

Also have issues with the app not recognizing miles on inside workouts.

Hi there! Having the current level completed, you can proceed with a more difficult one (Intermediate or Advanced) or even repeat the same level – the program is quite challenging and you won't get bored. To improve your mileage you can also switch to 5k or any other training plan. By becoming a Premium member you can remove the ads and get access to lots of useful features, however you can train absolutely for free with ads.
If you wish to train more often, you can disregard days' numbers. After you finish the workout the app will take you to the next workout next day. In addition we are planning to improve the distance tracking performance in our next updates. Please stay tuned!
