Great for coming from a couch.  Fatboyevo  5 star

My second time to use the app. It works great for beginners coming from the couch.


Great  scottatore  5 star

I like this over Runtopia because you can miss a workout and pick up where you left off.

Great app  lmnop48  5 star

I always hated running, but I wanted to get into it to lose some weight and this app helped me build up my endurance - I've lost 30 pounds so far! I definitely would recommend this to anyone that isn't a runner but wants to start!


Fantastic for the first 3 weeks  ReginaPhalange93  4 star

This app was amazing the first 3 weeks I have used it. I could feel myself getting better and better... That is, until the beginning of week 4. Week 4 has been a doozy. You go from a gradual pace to increasing your time by a minute EVERY WORKOUT. For a lot of people, I'm sure that's fine. But I'm trying to train again after two babies and postpartum depression, so hitting week 4 and feeling like a failure has been tough on my spirit. That being said, I'm going to repeat the last workout of week 3 over and over until I get it, it's just somewhat discouraging when it's supposed to be uplifting! Other than that, it's great though!


Top notch app!  Gmonti  5 star

Keeps me motivated and allows me to build endurance! Love it!

Great app - one suggestion:  Bionicears2004  5 star

It's wonderful for starters!  KW11 1 1 1 1 1  5 star

I'm a terrible runner, but this app starts you off nice and slow and works you up slowly.
