I absolutely love the idea behind this fitness app and I think that personalizing with “Trainer Trish” is an even better idea as it provides a fairly relatable person who can guide you through each step of your progression.

This health app is definitely one of the better “couch to 5K” apps that I’ve seen in the Health & Fitness category of the App Store, so pick it up today and you can start working towards a new, fitter you! Keep in mind, this is not a traditional gym app
