Here is what our users say about the app:
"I'm 40 and a beginner this app is easy to follow with me being over 200lbs it's a great app for me to start! Wish I would have found it years ago" Scc0008
"Well, this worked for me so how can I not give it 5 stars. If you're reading this trying to decide whether to take the 'running' plunge then I say just do it. The program will take you from nothing to running 5k through a nicely managed phased approach over 7 weeks. The most important thing to do is find a reasonable pace. Don't try and break any records - running slow is still running and is great exercise! I found that the first 2 weeks are great for finding your pace then the amount of running increases which appears scary but you'll be able to do it. Week 4 scared me a lot - "how much running!!" - but then you just do it. By the time I got to week 5 I found I got into a nice running rhythm and I could run more than the app suggested so I just went straight to 5k. First one was a failure but I made 4.5 but now I've found a good route and 5k isn't an issue. Note, I'm not at all fit and have done very little exercise in the past. My wife did this independently from me and pretty much went through the same scenarios I have described. Start now and in 5 - 6 weeks you'll be a runner! :-) make sure you're medically sound though!" Unsy
You will be able to run a 5K as soon as in 7 weeks thanks to the interval training program created by top coaches! The training’s intensity increases as you progress and the workout gradually advances. You’ll just need to do 30 minutes of interval training 3 times a week and you’ll achieve what you wish for.
You can use the app outside, in the gym or even on a treadmill.
You can listen to your favorite music as you walk/run while the app tells you what to do.
If you want to share your results with your friends and family, you can do so by posting your running map on Facebook and Twitter after your workout.

What's New in Version 1.2.2
Close to perfect but....
I have tried numerous running programs over the past 4 years. This one is the neat. Easy to use and handy to track my progress. I would give it 5 stars but for the lock button. The app allows you to lock the screen to keep track of your progress. However the lock button is too close to the fast forward/back buttons. If you fast forward/back the app does not keep track of your previous progress. Really irritating when it happens on the middle of a training session. I have tiny hands (wear a size 4 ring) so I have no idea how other people avoid the problem. Otherwise a good app.
It's a great interface. Allows you to play your own misic and it gives "run", "walk", and "nice job" commands over audio so you don't have to use the phone at all while running/walking. However. It tracks the scheduled run/walk periods on the gps, not what you actually run/walk, though, it accurately tracks your speed and average speed all the way through. Also, if you want to run/walk beyond the given time, it doesn't track it.
You need this App!
Great App. And with so many out there it's hard to find a great running App. I recommend this and as I get back into 1/2 marathon shape this is defiantly the way to go. And you get to earn points for logging in and enter to win fit bits, gift cards and more. Get it you won't regret it!
