Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

The Couch to 5K coach you select talks to you during your workouts. To save your battery, Couch to 5K sends audio notifications when your screen is locked or another app is in use.

To be sure you hear the coach during your workout, please do the following:
• Turn on Notifications permissions
• Turn on the hardware ring/silent switch (no red showing)
• Turn your ringer volume up
• Turn off Do Not Disturb (swipe up for Control Panel and the moon button should not be white)
• Within the app, in Settings > Workout Options, be sure the Trainer Volume is up

Without granting notification permissions, during a workout you can click the lock icon at the top left to keep the app active and still hear the coach.

For support please contact us at: We would love to hear from you.

—CalorieLab, April 2012

Great Appz

Just started week 6, app progresses perfectly!

This app ignited a new passion

This app completely changed my outlook on working out. I went from not being able to run a mile to running 5-7miles 5times a week. This app introduced me to the world of running and started great new hobby for me.

Pretty good app but the interval jumps are too high.

I like the idea of the app in that it coaches you in your headphones when to run or walk, so you dont have to constantly look at your watch for your intervals. Make sure your ringer is on or it wont prompt you when the screen is blank. My main complaint is that there is a huge jump in run intervals between weeks 2 and 3. Running is not my strong suit and going from a 1.5 minute run interval to three full minutes is too much of a jump. There needs to be a 2/2 interval in there first. Also, the app gets a little glitchy sometimes and can mess up where you are in your workout. I still hate running so if I miss a walk prompt or if the app glitches to the wrong set, its quite annoying.

Not worth $$. Easy to miss run/walk prompts

12/14/16 - messed up another workout due to no warning that phone was on mute. In this day, if Im going to have to pay for an app, it had better be good. This app is not. Audio prompts to run/walk are hard to hear and I have missed several. If you accidentally have your phone on mute, you will hear a prompt to start the workout, but no other prompts. You have to launch your music separately from the workout. But it stops your music when the workout ends - leaving you with a quiet walk home unless you manually restart the music. Yes there are workarounds to many of these issues, but I expected better.

Love it!

Great for beginners or those looking to pace themselves and get back to running without overdoing it

Fat kid to runner

I love it!


I promise you I eat out almost everyday. I never though I could run for this long. 3 sessions and im almost at 2 miles in 30 minutes. Its crazy!!!
