Very helpful. I have exercise induced asthma, so I've never been able to run. This app taught me how to run (well, jog, anyway) & reduce my athma. Now I don't even need my inhaler. It DOES take time. I did week 1 for about a month before moving up, but each week got easier and by week 4 I didn't have to repeat them anymore. A++
Fantastic app. It's perfect for beginners like i was. Can now run a solid 30 mins without rest. My best advise is invest in good running shoes and ladies, get yourself a good bra. I ran in some cheap trainer i got off ebay and my knees and ankles killed... have lost a ton of weight and am so so so happy about the whole experience. Definitely recommend. Update: This app got me active and when i cleaned up my eating lost 40 lbs. Perfect app. Am starting from week 1 again to increase my speed now :)
Clear and Simple There's not much to say other than the app works exactly the way it's supposed to. The interface is clear and easy to use and the voice prompts are ok. The only problem I have is, on my S5, Google play music doesn't work seamlessly with C25K; the two apps work side by side though, so no big deal.
It starts off very slow and gradually builds. Anyone can do this! Edit: I'm trying this again after an injury. Simple to follow and love the community support. The only thing I might add is the option for Billie to tell me where I am in the workout or what's left without looking at my phone.
For a paid for app it's very basic. There isn't any encouragement or warnings between the runs its literally just a voice saying run. jog. Run. The rest of the time its just your music. A bit of encouragement or 'you're half way keep running' type stuff would make it better.
Great motivator but Auto-pause would be even better. And how am I supposed to run the suggested miles when it cuts off at 30 minutes no matter what? I'll keep using this but I'm going to have to run with my Garmin too.
Is the easiest program to get beginners from seat to 5K distance runners.
