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.

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.
Galloway method good, app bad
I am a big fan of Jeff Galloway and his methods, however, this app falls flat. It is not intuitive or easy to use, and needs to be kept unlocked while running. This sounds ok, but when actually done, it's not. You need to lock your phone to keep all kinds of apps from opening and calls or texts being made. It's also loses its functionality when you run with podcasts, which is what many runners do.
For these reasons, I say don't waste your money on this app, and find some other way to use Jeff Galloway's tested and true running methods.
Two thumbs down to this app.
I am a lifelong walker, but like to train for one 5K I like to run in the spring. This app helps me to gradually train for it!
I start out huffing and puffing, and by the end of the 7-8 weeks, I'm doing much better, trying to finish strong. The beat sync is cool, you know when to walk or run, and he is very encouraging.
