C25K® - 5K Trainer Pro app review: a smart way to go from the couch to your first 5K 2021

Reviews

Introduction

Going from being a couch potato to running your first 5K might seem like a pretty daunting task at first but with this very inexpensive fitness app on your iPhone and iPad you’ll be able to enjoy a full program that will take you through the paces in an intelligent manner.

The best athletics apps for iPad

I really like reviewing a 5K trainer app like this one because most of them are very well-designed and can definitely be of great benefit to someone who is at a loss for where to start on their fitness journey.

With this non gym app, there are tracking tools, social features, an intelligently designed program that takes you from your first step to your first 5K, and everything is presented in a very friendly manner so I would definitely recommend checking out the C25K® running workout app.

If you’re not comfortable getting out on the road or a track just yet then you can use your home or gym treadmill comfortably thanks to full iPad support, which means you can rest your iPad on your treadmill and use the larger interface with far greater ease.
