Couch-to-5K app review



Price: $1.99

Couch-to-5K by The Active Network, Inc. is an app designed to take you from your couch to the running track.

If you are lacking the general motivation or knowledge on how to get yourself off the couch and into shape then this app is exactly what you have been waiting for. Included in this app is everything you need to get started on your entry into the world of fitness.

Training plans in this app are designed by professional trainers from and are designed to get anyone into running properly. You also have your choice of one of five highly motivational personal trainers who will guide you through each routine with motivational encouragement and simple instructions.

The built-in GPS from your device can be used to map your routes and calculate distances and pace so that you can monitor your performance as you improve. They will use this information to give you an overall performance rating with graphs that compare all your workouts. This helps give you further motivation as you watch your progress and see how you continually improve.

This app was updated to 1.7.1 on January 2, 2013 and included new running buddies and updated workout graphs and statistics.

This app has everything I needed to get my butt off the couch and running. It is well thought-out and the virtual trainers are a huge help in keeping me going and the new zombie trainer was by far the best.

For:  iPhone, iPod touch and iPad with iOS 5.0 or later
