Easy Half Marathon 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.

Turn the intensity down a bit when you're struggling or crank it up when you're ready for more, and Easy Half Marathon adjusts your workout — and your music — on the fly.

Music and coaching issues
Overall I love this app. It has helped me finish my first half and well on my way to second. The only drawbacks are a minor one and a semi major one. The minor one is the Verbal Coaching can be woefully misfiled or inappropriate. For example getting coaching that clearly belongs at the end of a run at the beginning or running coaching during warm-up or cool down. The semi major issue has nothing to do with training but rather with how the app itself works. If you add a song from your library and remove it and it plays during workout the music just stops instead of skipping the missing song. Along these lines is that if you remove a song or restore phone from backup and then reload your music, the app cannot find the song. Overall building and using playlists is the weakest part of the app. Generally this is a fantastic training app.
Great for a new PR!
I am running my 13th half marathon and I want to set a new personal record of under 1:45. I picked this app up after having talked to Jeff Galloway in Montana last year and I have to say I am impressed. I would highly recommend this app if you are a runner who wants to improve. I would not call my self competitive, but I bring a focused intensity to my training. I find Mr. Galloway's vocal tone, coaching, and the variation in the workouts refreshing and challenging. I love that it changes the BPM of the music to fit his coaching on advanced workouts. Overall for the price I am happy!!! Run fast and Party hard!!!
Lots of glitches
I love the training program of this app and the app would be amazing if it worked consistently. However, the app regularly glitches and doesn’t work well. For example, when I have my screen turned off it is supposed to notify me with vibrations about when to walk and when to run. That only happens approximately on a third of my work outs. Very regularly the app will freeze in the middle of my workout and I won’t realize it until I realize i hadn’t been notified for a while. The gps does work. I will run during my 30 minutes workouts and the app will say I only went .015 miles (my iPhone gps will log a couple of miles). This was expensive for an app and I really feel that these bugs need to be fixed.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
