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 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.

Help me Jeff Galloway, you're my only hope
I'm a massive Star Wars fan and when I saw how awesome the Star Wars rundisney events were, I knew I needed to start to train. I've been losing weight for a year & a half, taking the slow & steady approach, but I needed a Yoda to make my dreams of getting shiny Star Wars medals (and a healthier lifestyle) a reality. Enter Jeff Galloway. I started the app, and as a non runner who was struggling to combat the sedimentary lifestyle, immediately found that I could achieve more that I assumed by using his Run Walk Run method. Within 2 weeks I had shaved 45 seconds off of my mile split and lost 5 pounds, uber plus side... I wasn't dead or injured! Yippie!!! This app changed my perspective on what I could accomplish and by hearing Jeff Galloway's constant encouraging and guiding, you too will realize you really can do it. Now, with my new confidence, I'm training for the Princess 5k & 10k which will be before the Dark Side Marathon weekend and with all luck, I'll be able to complete both of those races and the half marathon as well! If you still need more Jeff (cause really who doesn't) check out his website and immensely helpful books. He also does personalized training, which might be my next step after attending his Runner School. This app has turned me into a Jeff Galloway fangirl! I have 0 regrets about that and neither will you when you start training with your Yoda & mine, the man, the myth, the rundisney legend, Jeff Galloway.
I can't believe it!!!!
I have always been one of those people who were jealous of runners. Being out of shape, over 40, and having not only bad feet, but also completely flat feet made me believe that I would never be able to run. My husband convinced me to download this app and I just finished running!!! I feel so good...and this is only the first day. I am actually looking forward to my next run. I think this slow beginner walk/run app is perfect. It's easy to use and I love Jeff Galloways encouraging, soothing voice...it keeps me focused and is so motivating. If you want to run...try this app!
Makes Run/Walk/Run Easy and Enjoyable
This app makes beginning a running program a breeze, especially if you're training outdoors. The best part is that as you follow the prompts, the music will increase or decrease its cadence to match the pace the program wants you maintain.
I find it a bit tougher to match treadmill runs with the music. Trying to find the right belt speed for the pace/cadence is a bit of a challenge and I feel awkward when running or walking out of sync with the music.
