Stay Motivated with your Fitness Regime

If you're new to cycling, walking, or running one of the toughest things can be to stick with it. Even if you've been doing it for years it can be hard to find the motivation to keep up with it. The Run the World app gives you a way to set goals, track them, and then stay motivated to continue with all your healthy efforts. The way it works is that you set a challenge for yourself or even a friend and then that acts as the motivating factor for you or your friend to complete the challenge. As far as how you share these challenges you can send them out by email, Twitter, and Facebook.

Set Your Goal and Accomplish It

Nothing feels quite as rewarding as setting a goal for yourself that is a challenging one and following through and completing it. The Run the World app celebrates your achievements in a really simple yet motivational way. To start you'll need to key in the amount of days per week you want to be running (or another activity) and then enter in a target date. The app then breaks it down into how far you need to run each day in order to achieve your goal by the date you've set. The app uses GPS to track your run and keep in mind you can do your running indoors on a treadmill even. Additional features including being able to view your past routes, view your time and distance history, and you can listen to music while performing your activity.
