Running For Weight Loss App Review

About a week ago I was introduced by a friend to this app called Running For Weight Loss. I have never really been into running very much but have always wanted to give it a fair shot so I thought....what the heck! and downloaded the app and began my journey to check out running as a part of my regular weekly workout routine. I have always been more of a speed walker and hiker so this change for me was kind of a big deal. I wondered if my forty-something body would react well to this new abuse. To my surprise I did way better than I thought I would and may have even grown to like running.


The functionality of this app is pretty straightforward and easy to navigate. I downloaded the app and within five minutes I was ready to go. When you initially open the app it will ask you for a some of your basic information such as, age, weight and if you consider yourself a beginner runner, intermediate or expert. Once all of that is entered the app will than create an 8 week running plan for you based on the information provided. My weekly plan is set up for running 3 days a week but I imagine this can vary depending on experience and goals. Now as you can tell by the title of the app this is geared for weight loss but I think anyone that would like to give running a shot could benefit from using this app.

One of the things I liked best about this app is that it just isn't telling you to go out and run a mile to build up endurance. It is actually set up where you have a "coach" instructing you to start with a warm up of a brisk paced walk for five minutes. You then begin the workout by running for a minute and a half, then walk for two minutes. You do this for thirty five minutes. The time frames for walking and running will vary. As your routine progresses the time frames of running verse walking will start to vary and get longer. Since I am starting out in the beginner phase my run time is only at a minute and a half to a minute. My training plan has it set up where I only run 3 days a week as to not get burned out.


The app is very easy to use and I like the fact that it gives you a weekly plan so you don't just have to wing it. I am the type of person that does better with a plan in place so this feature is very helpful for me. I am using the free version of this app for the moment but it does have the option to upgrade to premium for $9.99 a month or if you purchase 12 months up front it works out to be $3.33 a month. So far I find that I am perfectly happy with the functionality of the free version but for serious training runners and those that are looking to lose weight there is definite value in the premium version. One dislike I have with the free version is all of the ad popups to go premium and other advertisements BUT I also understand why that is in place on the free version. Over all my experience with this app has been a pretty great one. It got me interested in running and did it in a way that was easy on my body. I never had any issues with  the app failing or crashing. I honestly had a lot of fun using it and will probably continue to do so. If you are interested in checking out this app go to the app store on your phone and type in "Running For Weight Loss" and check it out. It is very easy and straight forward and a great tool for implementing running into your workout routine.
