1 minute to 4 miles
I am not a runner and I have never been one. Even in high school with cross country I was not very good. A few months ago, I decided I wanted to start running again and get into better shape and health. Combined with eating better, drinking plenty of water and this app I am now a “runner”. When I started this program I could barely run for a minute without hating life. I just finished the “running for weight loss, beginners program” and can run 4 miles non stop. This 8 week program builds you up little by little to be able to run a little longer each day. Yes, there are some days you will want to scream at the lady in your ear telling you how long to run for, but in the end you’ll thank her.
I did not purchase the app, only using the free version. Nor did I follow the suggested meals. I did my own research on what was best for me to eat.
I highly recommend this app to anyone who is looking to start running and be able to run longer. I did the running for weight loss because it seemed to fit my needs best. It started slowly and gradually worked its way up. I will also add, that again with a combination of eating healthy, plenty of water and this app, I did loose 20 lbs over the course of the program.
Dear user! Thank you for getting in touch with us and your feedback. We are very grateful that you've taken the time to rate the app, it really helps us to develop. Best wishes for a day!
Overall a great app
I’ve been using the app for a few weeks now and Im so far very pleased with it. I use to be an avid runner but life gets busy and its a lot harder to stay in shape in my 30’s now. So I wanted an app just to help keep me motivated to get in shape again, workout just isn’t as fun as it use to be. I enjoy the coaches that you can select from (Bobs my favorite), the music play lists are actually pretty good, and i enjoy the various walk, run, sprint intervals. It even tells me when Im half way so I know when to turn around and head back to were I started.
My only complaint is the estimated burnt calories is totally bizarre sometimes. I have a Garmin watch with a chest heart rate monitor that I use simultaneously to record and the distance recordings between that and this app are usually the same, however this app will have almost double the estimated burnt calories (on my last run, my watch said I burnt 390 calories while this app said 609 calories). I trust my Garmin more since it has a more accurate reading of my pace along with my heart rate. Other wise Im happy with the app and feel its worth the money so far.
This app is a nice concept in theory but execution is poor and intrusive. You won’t hear the cues from the coach to run/Walk etc. if your lock screen is up. I’m not sure if that’s Bc my phone is set to silent or what but other apps don’t struggle w this. So good luck keeping the app open while you run. It didn’t properly track distance- wasn’t trying to get totally accurate but it was pretty off.
Also, the ads and prompts to subscribe for the “premium” service are just too much. You can barely tap a few things on the app without getting a prompt or ad each time. This is a workout app! You are likely in the zone each time a giant ad appears. And I would be fine paying for a helpful app but the $10 a month subscription model just yields 0 value IMO. What am I paying for that’s on par with Netflix or my streaming music service pricing? There just aren’t enough features to justify $10 a month! I have my own playlists and there are other apps that provide what you’re offering without a subscription. Developers: some of us would actually like to pay for your app but your payment models need work...
Thank you for writing to us. We are sorry for the inconvenience caused and we'll try to address all of your concerns as thoroughly as possible.
In order to hear your coach and make the most out of your workout you should use the Padlock icon which you'll find in the bottom right corner to lock the screen instead of using only the lock button on your phone. Then the app will work properly and you’ll be able to hear all voice instructions and follow your stats even when your screen is locked.
The ads is what helps us keep your training free, otherwise we couldn't have a free version at all. The Premium subscription has other benefits besides the selection of 1000+ music mixes timed to your tempo. It also opens up more training options, removes all ads, allows you to select a personal coach with own personal style and charisma, enjoy meal plans with a bunch of recipes and more.
Should you need any further assistance please do not hesitate to contact us via in-app support, we'll be more than happy to help you.
