I am almost all the way through level 1. I hate running, and this app has made it a little less awful. I like the way it steps you up a little at a time and gives you goals to work towards / something to be proud of. I found some of the increments in level 1 to be too intense, and had to repeat several exercises before I was ready to move on to the next. I wish they made it clear that this is part of the process because I found it discouraging at times when I had to repeat a workout.

I absolutely love this app. Easy to use, I am able to enjoy my music without losing track of the training, it tells me when I half way of my training so when I am not doing a loop I can just turn around. I pay to keep a track of my records. The only thing a little off is the GPS which is not tracking really well so I kind of pay for something not very accurate. But I did one payment of 9.99 so it is not really expensive. I will pay a monthly plan of $5 with an accurate version 😉

Made me enjoy running and can't stop ever since! Didn't think I could run at all but started on level 1 and all the way through level 4. Amazing app and keeps me on track with the dings and verbal reminders after every 5 minutes or so (whenever its time to go to the next step of either walking or running..) during the run.
