It’s a new year, but one thing that’s not new is the resolution of getting in shape. It’s on everybody’s list, but it’ll only happen for a select few that are truly determined and have a plan of action. If you’re thinking about jumping up and running to the gym for a unbelievably and ridiculously hard workout, you can save yourself the trip. It’s a gradual process to get in shape, and luckily for you, there’s an app for that.
Titled “Couch-to-5K“, its name tells you all you need to know about what to expect. Its tagline is “the popular app that helps runners avoid injury from doing too much, too soon”, and that’s the most common mistake made by get-in-shape-for-the-new-year resolutioners. Chances are, the faster you start, the faster you quit, and in this situation, it’s a marathon, not a sprint.
The Couch-to-5K app is designed with runners in mind, enabling you to track your route, distance and pace with GPS technology, while combining with your music library for some tunes to jam out during your run.
Also integrated into the app are interactive trainers to guide, motivate and coach you through your workout to not only keep you on pace, but also push you that much more to make notable gains.
It’s a new year, and you deserve a new you, so take your time, keep at it, and check out the Couch-to-5K app to get you started off right.
