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: [email protected] We would love to hear from you.

"The popular Couch to 5K app helps new runners avoid injury from doing too much, too soon."
—Runners World, June 2012

"Its ridiculously easy to use (its hard not to, as you just do what youre told) and its fantastic that you have an encouraging voice talking you through things."
—Engadget, June 2012

"’s Couch to 5K is one of my favorite… apps. With its customizable features, interactivity, and well-rounded interface, I may actually stay off the couch this time."
—148Apps, October 2011

"I knew as soon as I decided to start the Couch to 5K program that I would need something to keep me accountable—not just to showing up for my training, but to actually doing it properly. Of course there’s an app for that."
—CalorieLab, April 2012

"If you have been struggling to get your buns off the couch and somewhat in shape before the summer hits, training for a 5K is not a bad way to start. If you are looking for a program to help get you there, then the “Couch to 5K” running plan by CoolRunning is probably your best bet if you haven’t done an ounce of athletic activity for a number of years."
—Droid Life, April 2012

• Once you purchase the app, it is yours to keep. It does not expire after 9 weeks.

Changed my life!

I used to be one of those lazy potatoes that would laugh and introduce themselves with a « I’m not very sporty, you know! », even though one part of me knew that my life would be much better with some exercise: for my mood, my heart, my breath, my weigh maintenance as I get older, my strength… For years I’ve had many attempts, but they all failed! Now I realize this is because I was going too hard at the beginning and lost my energy and motivation too quickly as a result… This app gave me a structure to follow and made me believe that my body was physically able to do it! I used to go red, out of breath and with chest pain after running for 5 minutes! Now I can easily run 20 minutes straight without 1 drop of sweat, I’ve already run as far as for 45 minutes and I believe I can even do more than that! All I’m saying is, if you’re bored of feeling like you’re going to die when going up the stairs, you know what you should do...

Super appli

Vraiment top top !

Mon coach idéal.

Pas sportive pour deux sous et en surpoids, la course à pied ne ma jamais plu. Mais avec cette appli, ça devient facile : on y va tout doucement, on progresse petit à petit, cest vraiment abordable à tous. Je cours 4-5 fois par semaine grace à lappli, ce qui était encore inimaginable ya un mois. Vraiment une application indispensable pour les squatteurs de canapé comme moi qui veulent se bouger un peu.

Need to keep it open

It works in terms of getting you to run 5k! But if youre listening to, for example, Spotify, you need to keep this app open at all times, otherwise you wont hear the instructions...

Génial ! Great !

Je naimais pas du tout courir et cette application ma réconciliée avec la course. Tout est progressif. On ne souffre pas. Maintenant je suis en manque en attendant la prochaine course ! Support sur internet. Musique de son choix . Choix des voix pour le coaching et GPS. Existe en 10km et demi-marathon. Je recommande fortement cette app.


Arnaque !!! Gros problème dapplication Beaucoup de bug dommage quon peut pas ce faire rembourser avec Apple ....


Highly recommended.
