Half Marathon Trainer Free app review: getting you prepped



Do you have plans of running a half marathon? If so we've got an app that can help you with the training process so you can properly prep. The Half Marathon Trainer Free app can be used on your iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch and can help those who have never trained for a marathon before. For this program you'll need to dedicate 30 to 60 minutes three times a week to training and at the end of 12 weeks you will be ready to run 13.1 miles with success.

It Is Possible

With the help of this app it is completely possible for you to go from never running more than a few miles to be being ready to run a half marathon in just 12 weeks. This is the ultimate training app that will transform your body and your confidence. This is a trainer-approved program so you know what you're doing has proven results. The way it works is that you follow the voice guided instructions while you train. The program begins as soon as you press "Start." You will be alternating between running and walking to condition your body.

This app has recently been updated and has received some pretty solid customer ratings. The latest update took a look at such issues as stability, bugs, and improvements to the audio player, resulting in a better package for users.


Additional Features

In order to help your training go a little smoother you aren’t just going to be stuck listening to voice guided instructions, instead you can be playing your own music in the background to keep you motivated and energized. While you're using the app and training it will keep track of your running history. What's helpful about this is that you can then view your progress over the 12 week program. Besides the voice prompts there are also written instructions on the screen. You will be able to see what you're doing and how long the total duration of that day's session is.

What I really like about this app is that it takes the fear and apprehension out of training for a marathon. Instead of thinking it’s not possible, and you have no idea where to begin, it feels completely attainable and almost easy when you start breaking it down into these individual sessions. The user interface is very smooth and I like its basic approach. There are also some customization features, which you’ll find in the settings menu.
