Jeff Galloway is truly a running legend. He ran with Steve Prefontaine, Bill Rodgers, Frank Shorter, and Amby Burfoot when the United States was a leading power in marathoning. He ran in over 130 marathons and continues to average about 7 marathons a year. Jeff is also a legendary running coach, with over 30 years of expertise safely progressing runners of all levels to the finish line with a smile on their faces. Jeff's running books have sold over a million copies, and he writes a monthly column in Runner's World. If you're looking for an expert coach, why not have one of the best in the world?

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.

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.

Amazing program!

I keep getting better and better! The program is easily adapted and motivates me to keep coming back to run the next workout. I had to take some time off due to an injury, so when it came time to get back on track, I just restarted and was able to return to my favorite activity without hurting myself. Thank you!!!

I don’t know what happened, but I’m unable to get the GPS to track when I’m running outside. I have started to resort to running two apps at the same time for my outdoor runs. One to keep track of distance and this one to maintain the program speed/cadence/intervals. It’s a bit annoying... subtracting one star...

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.

Abandoned app

This apps work OK for the first round through the 5K. It had many issues as flagged by others especially around music. It plays the same few songs over and over and won’t let you access your music. This was OK the first time through. As I tried the second mode to improve my 5K time the app didn’t function at all. It didn’t track intervals which is kind of the point. It’s not functioning midway through and didn’t track my run at all. Very frustrating. The app hasn’t been updated in years. The one positive is that I realize the lack of functionality before I bought the 10K, half marathon, and Marathon package. I have most of the Lolo apps and they’re good quality – except they seem to have been abandoned. It’s too bad because with an update this app would be a good one. The idea of the run walk intervals is great and I suggest you look it up and apply it to Your runs. It’s really reduced my recovery time and made it do I can run farther and longer. You don’t need this frustrating app to leverage the method.
