Kyle and Lisa Review RunKeeper

Posted: Updated:
Kyle Bosch -

With spring finally here people starting to work out outside again we decided to start with RunKeeper.

To be fair, I've been using RunKeeper for about a year now and it's one of my favorites.  Basically it uses GPS to track how far you walked the dog, rode your bike or chased your ball around the golf course.

There's also a manual entry feature so if you get forced in the gym during an April or May snow storm you can still stay on track with your fitness goals.

The other popular features, goals and training plans.  You can set a goal of losing 5 pounds or running 10 miles and RunKeeper will track your progress and give you encouragement along the way.

Or maybe you want to run in next year's Fargo Marathon, it has training plans for everything from full to 5k.

RunKeeper is free, a regular on the iTunes top 10 free list and one of the best reviewed fitness trackers out there.  The newest version also makes it easier to share your progress and pictures on Twitter and Facebook.

One downside I found, if sports activities are part of your fitness plan, you have to find a work-around.  So when I play pick up basketball or soccer I have to guesstimate my distance.

Overall I love this App ... easy to use ... fun to track your progress ... and doesn't cost a thing.

There is an upgrade called RunKeeper Elite, it cost 4.99 a month or $19.99 a year.

It's a cool feature if you're really into racing because it lets your followers track your progress live on a map, but otherwise just save your money.
