Is your new year's resolution to get in shape? Want to start running? This 5-in-1 app contains five 8 week training programs. These will get you running 1 mile, 5k, or 10k. There are also bridge programs from 1 mile to 5k and 5k to 10k.

This app is ideal for running inside on a treadmill or outdoors. Each running program consists of 24 unique workouts to gradually train your body to run longer than you ever have before. By slowly acclimatizing your body you can run longer each session while reducing your likelihood of injury.

Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. If you are running inside or are concerned about battery usage, you can disable the GPS in the options page within the app.

Love the session but have to look at phone

I love the break down to get you to one mile - it had nice shirt run times even for the most out of shape person (which I am) and that the same app has 1 mile to 5k, 5k to 10k, etc. The only problem is, you have to keep your phone unlocked and your screen in to see the prompts - audio prompts aren't working, at least when you have music on. Once I get through one mile, I'll switch back to couch to 5k free. I can't run while staring at my screen.

Can’t get the voice to work

I switched the voice prompt between the female and male, and still nothing. It works for other apps so it’s not my phone.

True Beginner Program

I searched through all the beginning running apps, and C25K apps in the store and all of them take you too fast from
A to Z. This takes beginners at a realistic pace, I love it. I wish that they would overhaul the design and make it a little more fancier or cute, but it's fully functional it works great.
