Easy 5K dynamically changes the beat of YOUR music to perfectly match your pace. Research shows that music distracts the brain during exercise and faster music causes people to accept and even prefer a greater degree of effort. This means you will work harder without trying (or without even feeling the difference), you will get better results from the increased effort, and most importantly, the time will fly by. You can also download 15 tracks of high-energy fitness music for FREE to really get your playlist pumping.
DESIGNED AROUND YOU
Whether you're a beginner or a seasoned runner, Easy 5K has the perfect program for you. Your pace and Run-Walk-Run ratio of each workout is customized to your ability, plus Easy 5K gives you complete control as you move through your workout. Turn the intensity down a bit when you're struggling or crank it up when you're ready for more, and Easy 5K adjusts your workout — and your music — on the fly.
Easy 5K includes FREE GPS tracking* so you can see your pace and the distance covered during your workouts. GPS works best outside with a clear view of the sky. When you want to work indoors on a track or on a treadmill, use your beat-synced music to set your pace, and Easy 5K will track your results.
Works with Health
- Completed workouts sync to the Health app, including distance, calories burned and duration.
*Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

If you love Easy 5K, leave us a review!
Been using this app for over a year & have nothing but good things to say. This app (5k) is great for beginning or slower runners. I am a Jeff Galloway devotee, but this app would be helpful for anyone who wants to use the run/walk method.
What I like is the ability to tailor the pace to your needs. I also like how you can switch between treadmill & outdoor running. Plus it's good to be able to swap weeks and runs, and redo a run as many times as you like.
What I REALLY like is how you can use your own music and the app speeds it up or slows it down to match the interval. You can also speed up a song's pace midrun.
And then there is the huge bonus of Jeff Galloway's coaching. I had been running with a group & this app gives me better information and motivation than I ever got from the group coach. Those of us who are slow are often left in the dust. But no more - I feel like I'm getting actual useful information that I can use in every run.
This 12:00 (with a goal of 11:00) pacer gives 👍👍👍👍👍
I feel like a rock star!
If you love it when a song comes on your iPhone and matches exactly the pace you are running, then this app is for you. You load your own music on, it determines the BPM, then selects the right song for your pace. And since it's a Galloway app you probably have walk intervals, right? No problem, it adjusts the tempo just enough that it now matches the pace of your walk. It's easy to configure your pace and run/walk ratio, and just as easy to adjust them while on the run. And if you have any issues the Lolo customer service is great. Honestly, I cannot say enough great things about this app!
Great for new runners but has its problems...
I love the actual running portion of the app. Jeff Galloway has a great method that is actually getting me into running! but the longer I use it the more frustrated I grow with the fact that it doesn't work with pandora or iTunes Radio. The rest of the lolo apps I have do and I'm not sure why this one does not. I even tried turning off the beat synch function. I'll probably just switch to an interval timer for the short run days so I can listen to the radio instead.
