About this app

Taking up running? What could be easier!

Don’t worry about distance, pace, or speed. Let's think about all this later.
Listen to the instructions and run as you like.

Don't focus on your running technique. The most important thing now is to get out and start running.

Your goal is to increase the jogging time. Nothing else matters right now.

+ Detailed statistics of each training

The workout plan is split into 4 levels. Each level has a specific goal for jogging duration:

* Level 1 goal is 20 minutes.
* Level 2 goal is 30 minutes.
* Level 3 goal is 40 minutes.
* Level 4 goal is 60 minutes of running.

Each level has a 4-weeks duration, and 3 workouts per week.

Fantastic app!! I use to run and be in better shape but I lost it. This app is exactly what I needed to get me back on track! It is simple and effective. I love that there is a "keep screen on" option because I keep my phone on my treadmill and now I can gradually get back into running and see exactly how long I have left in the step until I have to run/walk again. Other apps have alof of bells and whistles (and junk), but this app is clean and gets the job done!

I'm a bicyclist who had to switch to running due to a broken shoulder. Running always hurt my back in the past, but I am finishing level 2 and still doing great. I restarted level 2 due to an illness and I've really liked the way it's organized to help you deal with needing to back up. I use the repeat workout feature a few times when it felt too hard to continue to advance. I also like listening to music while running and the audio prompts overtake the music well. Great paid app!

I love it! The perfect amount of challenge without it being impossible, having never been a "runner" before :) however, i do have one small issue: i wish to be able to track my runs and see them on the map afterwards, but I've never been able to see them.. I make sure to have my GPS/location setting turned on.. By chance do i need to buy the full version for that feature? ☺
