5K Runner: 0 to 5K run training
What does it do?
5K Runner is the easiest and most successful program in getting beginners to run 5K. Rated 5 star by many of the top companies such as CNN, Fox News, USA Today, Times and Fitness Channel – this training program cuts out all of the rubbish that you don’t want to read and hear and skips straight on to the exercise program. Using a clever audio coaching system, you are guided whether to walk or run whether starting slow or running full pace in a sprint. There is absolutely nothing to learn meaning that whether you are at a beginner level or a professional runner this app caters for you. You have full access to all of your music on the device as well as almost all of the music apps outside. The audio coach integrates with this to blend in with the music to keep you focused throughout. Share all of your progress online with common social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter, as well as emailing all of your results to your friends and family. This is fully compatible with other GPS running apps, and supports Nike+, RunKeeper, MapMyRun and lots of others.With this trainer you have no excuse not to train for the 5K.
What’s the verdict?
Everyone is talking about this app and here at izzyj HQ we couldn’t pass on the opportunity to try it out ourselves. When you first enter the application, you are greeted with a colourful and friendly interface which directs you straight into the training. The buttons are clear, and the text is readable and well spaced proving that it caters for users of all ages. Voiceover’s on applications are sometimes crackly and unclear, but with the 5K Runner we found that the voice coach was loud and did not have any interference. All music applications function correctly and the voice blending from the trainer allows for focused and uninterrupted training. We can definitely see the benefits of this application for fitness and for training, and recommend that everybody gives it a go before passing up on the chance for ultimate fitness.
